Immigration And Constitutional Consequences Of Post-9/11 Policies Involving Arabs And Muslims In The United States: Is Alienage A Distinction Without A Difference?, Susan Akram, Maritza Karmely Mar 2005

Immigration And Constitutional Consequences Of Post-9/11 Policies Involving Arabs And Muslims In The United States: Is Alienage A Distinction Without A Difference?, Susan Akram, Maritza Karmely

Faculty Scholarship

There has been much public and academic discussion on post-9/11 government policies and whether their impact on Arabs and Muslims in the United States is unconstitutional “racial profiling” or legitimate immigration control based on constitutionally permissible nationality distinctions. The main assumption underlying this debate is that the focus of the government's policies in the “war on terror” is noncitizens, even if principally Arabs and Muslims. Thus, the racial profiling issues center on the differences between the constitutional due process analysis applied to noncitizens and that applied to citizens. This Article challenges the above argument and a number of ...

Bank Mergers In North America: Comparing The Approaches In The United States And Canada, Eric J. Gouvin

Faculty Scholarship

This Article provides a summary comparison of the processes in the United States and Canada for governmental approval of bank mergers.

Congressional Authorization And The War On Terrorism, Curtis A. Bradley, Jack L. Goldsmith Jan 2005

Congressional Authorization And The War On Terrorism, Curtis A. Bradley, Jack L. Goldsmith

Faculty Scholarship

This Article presents a framework for interpreting Congress's September 18, 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), the central statutory enactment related to the war on terrorism. Although both constitutional theory and constitutional practice suggest that the validity of presidential wartime actions depends to a significant degree on their relationship to congressional authorization, the meaning and implications of the AUMF have received little attention in the academic debates over the war on terrorism. The framework presented in this Article builds on the analysis in the Supreme Court's plurality opinion in Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, which devoted significant attention ...


Agony In The Antipodes: The Generic Drug Provisions Of The Australia-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, Kevin Outterson Jan 2005

Agony In The Antipodes: The Generic Drug Provisions Of The Australia-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, Kevin Outterson

Faculty Scholarship

The Australia-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA), which entered into force on January 1, 2005, contains many remarkable provisions of interest to generic drug companies. The AUSFTA selectively exports U.S. generic drug laws of great import to generic drug manufacturers, and is uniquely intrusive into domestic pharmaceutical and political spheres. The AUSFTA is important both in its own right, and as a model for future U.S. free trade agreement negotiations.

Beyond the generic drug industry, the provisions are of interest to consumers who pay higher prices when generic drug entry is delayed, and stands as an example of ...
