Sanctuary Campuses: To Be Or Not To Be, That Is The Question, Renei Caballes Jan 2018

Sanctuary Campuses: To Be Or Not To Be, That Is The Question, Renei Caballes

GGU Law Review Blog

In addition to cities affirming their status as sanctuaries to undocumented immigrants, college campuses have also pressured their administrations to declare their campuses sanctuaries in order to combat the President’s attacks on the undocumented members of their student bodies. Despite this pressure, many campuses are reluctant to definitively state whether or not they will be considered a “sanctuary campus” given the potential consequences of such a declaration, namely having their vital federal funding stripped. Further, for institutions that are willing to deem themselves sanctuary campuses, it is unclear just what a sanctuary campus will look like and entail. While ...


Combating Domestic Violence In Bangladesh: Law, Policy And Other Relevant Considerations, Dr. Zakia Afrin Jan 2018

Combating Domestic Violence In Bangladesh: Law, Policy And Other Relevant Considerations, Dr. Zakia Afrin

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

In 2011, an incident involving Professor Rumana Manzur of Dhaka University brought the topic of domestic violence in Bangladesh into main stream discussions. Professor Manzur’s husband of ten years, Hasan Syeed Sumon, had tried to gauge out both of her eyes by using his fingers, bit her nose and left her severely injured while they fought in her father’s residence in Dhaka. This incident shocked the whole country as well as diasporas abroad and forced the society to address the legal and societal loopholes to effectively combat this issue. Bangladesh has displayed an understanding of and respect for ...


Human Rights Abuse And Violations In Nigeria: A Case Study Of The Oil-Producing Communities In The Niger Delta Region, Dr. Ifeanyi I. Onwuazombe Jan 2018

Human Rights Abuse And Violations In Nigeria: A Case Study Of The Oil-Producing Communities In The Niger Delta Region, Dr. Ifeanyi I. Onwuazombe

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

Human rights abuses and violations in Nigeria in general and in the oilproducing communities in particular cut across the entire spectrum of rights. The abuses come in different forms and could be direct or indirect. The inhabitants of the Niger Delta region are subjected to regular rights abuses and violations by the state security agents and the oil corporations. The perpetrators of rights violations are hardly or never held accountable or brought to justice due to the myriad of problems besetting the judicial institutions. Besides, there is an apparent lack of trust and confidence in the courts and general apathy ...


Theoretical Underpinnings Of Trust Investment Law: Juxtaposing Nigerian Law With Current Trends In Other Common Law Jurisdictions, Dr. Larry O.C. Chukwu Jan 2018

Theoretical Underpinnings Of Trust Investment Law: Juxtaposing Nigerian Law With Current Trends In Other Common Law Jurisdictions, Dr. Larry O.C. Chukwu

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

Over the centuries, common law jurists and scholars have propounded theories and principles which underpin the conduct of the investment duty of trustees. This article offers a comparative analysis of the theoretical underpinnings of trust investment law as applicable in Nigeria vis-a-vis the current trends in other jurisdictions. It concludes that the Nigerian law is hopelessly lagging behind and proffers recommendations for reform.


Accountability Of International Ngos: Human Rights Violations In Healthcare Provision In Developing Countries And The Effectiveness Of Current Measures, Sharmeen Ahmed Jan 2018

Accountability Of International Ngos: Human Rights Violations In Healthcare Provision In Developing Countries And The Effectiveness Of Current Measures, Sharmeen Ahmed

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

In recent years, the number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in the international arena has vastly increased, generally making a positive impact. But, as this influence has deepened, governments in the developing world and scholars have scrutinized the work and accountability of NGOs given they are mostly independent and not subjected to international law. While NGOs must adhere to the domestic laws of the places within which they work, adherence is dependent upon the strength of enforcement of those laws. Proponents argue that this independence is essential for NGOs to effectively carry out their work. However, a review of healthcare ...


Responding To Homegrown Terrorism: The Case Of Boko Haram, Dr. Elimma C. Ezeani Jan 2018

Responding To Homegrown Terrorism: The Case Of Boko Haram, Dr. Elimma C. Ezeani

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

If terrorism as it is known from history is changing, should the response to it change as well? This paper reflects on the rise and activities of Boko Haram in Northern Nigeria and the hesitation of domestic, regional and international efforts in stemming its spread. It finds that the rise and impact of homegrown terrorist groups like Boko Haram deserve closer attention than they have previously received particularly with regard to legal responses by domestic governments and the international community. The activities of Boko Haram in Nigeria have brought to the fore challenges faced by law and governments in tackling ...

Pluralism Applied: A Concordant Approach To Selecting Contract Rules, Samuel Ernst Jan 2018

Pluralism Applied: A Concordant Approach To Selecting Contract Rules, Samuel Ernst

Publications

Contract rules can be justified by utilitarian theories (such as efficiency theory), which are concerned with promoting rules that enhance societal wealth and utility. Contract rules can also be justified by rights-based theories (such as promissory and reliance theories), which are concerned with protecting the contractual freedom and interests of the individual parties to the contract. Or, contract rules can be analyzed through the lenses of a host of other theories, including critical legal theory, bargain theory, and so on. Because no single, unitary theory can ever explain the complex body of laws and societal conventions surrounding contracts, the best ...

California’S “Yes Means Yes” Standard: A Starting Point For College Sexual Assault Policy Reform, Elizabeth Youngberg Aug 2017

California’S “Yes Means Yes” Standard: A Starting Point For College Sexual Assault Policy Reform, Elizabeth Youngberg

Golden Gate University Law Review

Section I will discuss the background on colleges and their responsibility to address sexual misconduct on their campuses. This begins with a discussion regarding the relationship colleges share with their students and the government. Next, the background will discuss the federal laws that govern colleges and how they are expected to address campus sexual misconduct, including the Clery Act, Title IX as interpreted and defined by the Dear Colleague Letter of 2011, the Campus SaVE Act, and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. Finally, this section concludes by reviewing California laws addressing campus sexual misconduct, including the California ...


Hackers Made Me Lose My Job!: Health Data Privacy And Its Potentially Devastating Effect On The Lgbtq Population, Alex Lemberg Aug 2017

Hackers Made Me Lose My Job!: Health Data Privacy And Its Potentially Devastating Effect On The Lgbtq Population, Alex Lemberg

Golden Gate University Law Review

This Comment shows that because of an increasing rate and severity of data breaches, insufficient legal recourse for affected individuals, and lack of incentives for healthcare companies to strengthen their data security systems, leaked healthcare data will cause the substantive due process right of privacy of LGBTQ individuals to be disenfranchised. Because sexual orientation and gender identity are unprotected by heightened scrutiny under federal due process and equal protection jurisprudence, additional protections must be created for LGBTQ people. These protections should include a new legal right in tort under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), increase ...


Independent Contractor Or Employee: I’M Uber Confused! Why California Should Create An Exception For Uber Drivers And The “On-Demand Economy”, Andre Andoyan Aug 2017

Independent Contractor Or Employee: I’M Uber Confused! Why California Should Create An Exception For Uber Drivers And The “On-Demand Economy”, Andre Andoyan

Golden Gate University Law Review

Part I of this comment details California employment law, how it has been applied to Uber, and how Uber, along with other “On-Demand Economy” companies, are different than other companies. Part II presents the current legal issues in worker classification. Part II also proposes the exception that should apply to Uber drivers and discusses why Uber, and other “On-Demand Economy” companies, should be entitled to this exception, including the practical problems with an employment classification for Uber. Part III concludes that changing our worker-classification laws is a compromise that will benefit drivers, Uber, and reflect the changes in our society.


A ’70’S Woman’S View Of 40 Years In The Life Of The Law, Drucilla Stender Ramey Aug 2017

A ’70’S Woman’S View Of 40 Years In The Life Of The Law, Drucilla Stender Ramey

Golden Gate University Law Review

In reflecting on 45 years of the life of the law in the Bay Area, it was initially tempting to contrast the grim reality of the new Administration with a seemingly kinder and gentler time. But in truth those halcyon days of memory actually began with the landslide reelection of Richard Nixon, emblematic of a decade here that was scarred by unimaginable violence — from the Zebra killings and the Patty Hearst kidnapping to the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and gay rights icon Harvey Milk; from the Jonestown massacre of over 900 followers of the Unification Church to the gunning ...


Life As A Civil Rights Lawyer In The San Francisco Bay Area, John L. Burris Aug 2017

Life As A Civil Rights Lawyer In The San Francisco Bay Area, John L. Burris

Golden Gate University Law Review

As a civil rights lawyer for almost 40 years, I have represented over 1,000 victims of police misconduct, thousands in class action employment and toxic tort cases, defendants in many serious criminal cases, and an array of high-profile public figures and professional athletes. During the course of this article, I will write about a selection of cases that are most meaningful and impactful to me. This article also addresses the development of my high-profile status related to my involvement with cases of public interest.


The Office Of The City Attorney Of San Francisco, Louise Renne Aug 2017

The Office Of The City Attorney Of San Francisco, Louise Renne

Golden Gate University Law Review

The San Francisco City Attorney’s Office serves the Mayor, Board of Supervisors, and other elected officials as well as the approximately 100 departments, boards, commissions, and offices that comprise the City and County of San Francisco’s government. In many ways, the office is unique among city attorney offices, both because of the extraordinary scope of activities performed by the City and County of San Francisco’s government, and the scope of the City Attorney’s Office activities within that structure. At the outset, it is important to note that the San Francisco City Attorney is elected — comparatively unusual ...

Golden Gate University School Of Law: A Bridge To The Profession In The Heart Of San Francisco, Rachel A. Van Cleave Aug 2017

Golden Gate University School Of Law: A Bridge To The Profession In The Heart Of San Francisco, Rachel A. Van Cleave

Golden Gate University Law Review

An over 115-year San Francisco institution devoted to opening legal education and the profession to people of diverse backgrounds and experiences, Golden Gate University School of Law (GGU Law) has been a cornerstone of the Bay Area legal community. GGU Law’s mission, graduates, and academic leaders have played an integral role to the fabric of the San Francisco Bay Area legal community and that has shaped a progressive use of the law that seeks to protect the rights of those who otherwise lack a strong political or legal voice. These contributions continue to reverberate throughout California and beyond. This ...

Greenaction For Health And Environmental Justice, Petitioner, V. Tetra Tech Ec, Inc. Licensee., Golden Gate University School Of Law Jun 2017

Greenaction For Health And Environmental Justice, Petitioner, V. Tetra Tech Ec, Inc. Licensee., Golden Gate University School Of Law

Environmental Law and Justice Clinic

Led by our clinic professor, Steve Castleman, our clinic filed a student-researched petition before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, seeking to have the agency responsible for nuclear safety revoke a nuclear materials license held by a company that is responsible for cleaning up the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard. We got great media coverage. In the coverage done by NBC Investigative Unit, which also covered the clinic’s work on pollution in Hunters Point last month, reporter Liz Wagner is holding up the petition that the clinic filed.

The shipyard is slated for commercial and residential development. The cleanup contractor, Tetra Tech ...
