The Economic Efficiency Case Against Business Tax Privacy, Daniel Schaffa Jan 2020

The Economic Efficiency Case Against Business Tax Privacy, Daniel Schaffa

Law Faculty Publications

By statute, business tax returns are not publicly available. But with public access, investors would acquire useful information that would help them make better investing decisions; business tax compliance and planning would become more uniform, preventing tax-savvy firms from gaining an advantage over other relatively more productive firms; and businesses could learn from one another, which would spare firms the cost of redundantly developing the same tax strategies. In the long run, these efficiency gains could result in lower prices, higher wages, more innovation, more leisure, and better investment returns. In the debate over business tax privacy, these sorts of ...

Disruptive Leadership In Legal Education, Nicholas A. Mirkay, Palma Joy Strand May 2019

Disruptive Leadership In Legal Education, Nicholas A. Mirkay, Palma Joy Strand

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Legal education and the legal profession are ripe for disruption. The crisis in legal education reflects an increasing mismatch between the limited services that the law and lawyers provide and the vast and acute societal need for legal services. The structure of academia generally and legal academia in particular, however, serves as an obstacle to the disruptive leadership that can initiate necessary adaptation. Here, we discuss our own experience with disruptive leadership and the backlash we received, as well as the risks of failing to embrace disruptive leadership in legal education going forward. “The act of leadership is not always ...

Intersecting Trends In Abortion And Capital Punishment Policy, Erica Rebussini May 2019

Intersecting Trends In Abortion And Capital Punishment Policy, Erica Rebussini

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

A recent bill in Ohio brought to the forefront of the nation’s consciousness the intersection of abortion and capital punishment. The bill sought to redefine “person” to include “unborn humans,” therefore making the termination of a pregnancy the intentional killing of another person. Further, because one of Ohio’s aggravating circumstances for the imposition of capital punishment is child homicide, those who choose to have an abortion would be subject to the possibility of capital punishment. While the bill died in committee, it provides a unique lens through which to examine the intersection of the debate over abortion restrictions ...


Applying The Principle Of Proportionality To The War On Terror, Waseem Ahmad Qureshi May 2019

Applying The Principle Of Proportionality To The War On Terror, Waseem Ahmad Qureshi

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

This paper aims to discuss and apply the principle of proportionality (PoP) to the War on Terror (WoT). For this, vital characteristics and conditions of the PoP will be discussed in great detail. The paper argues that notions of the “just cause,” the “reasonable hope of success,” and the “requirement of the last resort” are incorporated within the PoP. This paper also defines how the harm caused by military actions is weighed against the direct military advantage to arrive at conclusions on the proportionality or disproportionality of an attack. After discussing the theoretical grounds of the PoP, this paper tries ...


Nonprofit Hospitals' Community Benefits Should Actually Benefit The Community: How Irs Reforms Can Improve The Provision Of Community Benefits, Kim Simmons May 2019

Nonprofit Hospitals' Community Benefits Should Actually Benefit The Community: How Irs Reforms Can Improve The Provision Of Community Benefits, Kim Simmons

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Policymakers and health care leaders have frequently questioned and critiqued whether nonprofit hospitals’ provision of community benefits is worth their favored tax status. While legislation and regulations have recently been enacted to address such concerns, the tax exemption standards continue to fail to promote the goals articulated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) of reforming and improve health care delivery systems in the United States for all people. To better effectuate the purposes of the ACA, this article suggests that the Internal Revenue Service adopt minimum community benefit spending requirements that vary depending on the ...

Children Are Different: The Need For Reform Of Virginia's Juvenile Transfer Laws, M. Randell Scism May 2019

Children Are Different: The Need For Reform Of Virginia's Juvenile Transfer Laws, M. Randell Scism

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

In Virginia, there are three ways that a juvenile can be sent to the adult criminal justice system: discretionary waiver, certification (direct file), and mandatory waiver through transfer and certification, but they are no ways to be sent back to the juvenile criminal justice system if that would be more appropriate. Once a juvenile enters the adult criminal justice system, they are subject to more significant sentences and collateral consequences. This increased punishment is counterproductive because, as the Supreme Court recognized in Roper, Graham, and Miller, juveniles are less culpable for the crimes they commit and more likely to be ...

Legal Changes Needed To Strengthen The #Metoo Movement, Sarah David Heydemann, Sharyn Tejani Apr 2019

Legal Changes Needed To Strengthen The #Metoo Movement, Sarah David Heydemann, Sharyn Tejani

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

The rise of the #MeToo Movement highlights the inadequacies of Title VII, the federal law that protects against employment discrimination, including sex harassment. Title VII, in its current form, does not adequately address the needs of workers, especially low-wage workers, who already face considerable obstacles to reporting their harassment. While states have made significant strides in this area, the work of advocates for change and for survivors, like the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund and the National Women’s Law Center, is necessary so that the federal government follows suit to ensure Title VII works for all workers. In ...


They Still Just Don’T Get It: The Lessons Of The #Metoo Movement Through The Lens Of Supreme Court Nominations, Maryann Grover Apr 2019

They Still Just Don’T Get It: The Lessons Of The #Metoo Movement Through The Lens Of Supreme Court Nominations, Maryann Grover

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Many have hailed the #MeToo Movement as a turning point in the way this country discusses sexual assault and sexual harassment, but when looking at the #MeToo Movement through the lens of Supreme Court nominations, it is unclear whether the impact of the Movement will be as farreaching as some imagine. The hearing of Anita Hill, which came before the #MeToo Movement, and the hearing of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, which came after the #MeToo Movement, perhaps demonstrate that the #MeToo Movement has reached its limit culturally and now institutional change must be the focus in order for the goals ...

System Accountability And Sexual Assault: The Past And Future Of The Criminal Justice System, Alta Viscomi Apr 2019

System Accountability And Sexual Assault: The Past And Future Of The Criminal Justice System, Alta Viscomi

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

The #MeToo Movement and the rise in the public consciousness of the impact of sexual violence has made abundantly clear that the legal rape reform movement that began in the 1970s was largely unsuccessful in stemming the tide of sexual violence. That movement was directed at the procedures in criminal justice system that make rape prosecutions easier for the state, but it failed to address the state’s role in enabling and perpetuating sexual violence. By failing to address those issues and by actively turning to carceral feminism, the state implemented a system in which sexual violence reporting remains low ...

Vicarious Trauma In Public Service Lawyering: How Chronic Exposure To Trauma Affects The Brain And Body, Megan Zwisohn, Wayne Handley, Danielle Winters, Alyssa Reiter Apr 2019

Vicarious Trauma In Public Service Lawyering: How Chronic Exposure To Trauma Affects The Brain And Body, Megan Zwisohn, Wayne Handley, Danielle Winters, Alyssa Reiter

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Each day, attorneys and other service providers are subject to trauma. By the nature of the profession, they work with victims of crime, victims of poverty, and victims of discrimination. While attorneys do not personally experience this victimization, they do often internalize it and revisit it in case preparation. As a result, attorneys, particularly those in public interest roles, regularly experience, burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. These factors can negatively impact attorneys neurological and physiological functioning, causing them harm and potentially causing harm to their client or their client’s case. For these reasons, it is critically important for ...


To The Survivors Of Childhood Sexual Abuse- Whenever You’Re Ready: Eliminating The Criminal Statute Of Limitations On Childhood Sexual Assault Crimes In Light Of Pennsylvania’S Catholic Dioceses Grand Jury Investigation, Rebecca Schultz Apr 2019

To The Survivors Of Childhood Sexual Abuse- Whenever You’Re Ready: Eliminating The Criminal Statute Of Limitations On Childhood Sexual Assault Crimes In Light Of Pennsylvania’S Catholic Dioceses Grand Jury Investigation, Rebecca Schultz

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

It is exceptionally difficult for many survivors of sexual assault to come forward to tell their story. This is particularly the case where the perpetrator is someone in a position of power who the survivor trusted. The statute of limitations for cases of childhood sexual abuse can serve as another barrier preventing survivors from coming forward because it prevents any semblance of justice for those individuals. This is currently most evident in states like Pennsylvania that still impose a statute of limitations on crimes of sexually assaulting children. Pennsylvania is reeling from its most recent Catholic clergy sex abuse scandal ...
