Nafta's Labor Side Accord: A Three-Year Accounting, Lance A. Compa Jul 1997

Nafta's Labor Side Accord: A Three-Year Accounting, Lance A. Compa

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Any number of idealized "social charters" with universal standards and swift, powerful enforcement powers could be drafted by critics of the labor side agreement. But the NAALC was negotiated by sovereign governments with clashing business, labor, and political concerns. The result is a hybrid agreement, one that preserves sovereignty but creates mutual obligations and combines broad cooperation and consultation programs alongside contentious review, evaluation, and dispute resolution mechanisms. Most of all, the NAALC promotes engagement on labor rights and labor standards in an experiment not tested in any other international forum.

Adjudication And Its Discontents: Coherence And Conciliation In Federal Indian Law, Philip P. Frickey Jun 1997

Adjudication And Its Discontents: Coherence And Conciliation In Federal Indian Law, Philip P. Frickey

Faculty Scholarship

Federal indian law is rooted in conflicting principles that leave the field in a morass of doctrinal and normative incoherence. In this Commentary, Professor Frickey begins by criticizing two recent efforts to bring coherence to this field. One approach, which narrows the scope of inquiry and attempts to apply non-normative doctrinal analysis, ignores the fictional nature of much federal Indian law doctrine and fails to appreciate the significance of normative and historical principles lurking behind the doctrine. The other approach, which seeks to construct a single descriptive paradigm from the case law, .fails because federal Indian law precedents do not ...

Protection Of Famous Trademarks In Japan And The United States, Kenneth L. Port Jan 1997

Protection Of Famous Trademarks In Japan And The United States, Kenneth L. Port

Faculty Scholarship

The concepts of trademark jurisprudence in Japan and the United States differ drastically. This difference is apparent in many aspects of trademark protection in both countries and is most evident in the treatment of famous marks. Although Japan and the United States share elements of trademark law that cause some observers to claim that Japan is legally the fifty-first State, the conceptual differences at the foundation of trademark law in each country are so significant that such a claim seems inaccurate and misleading.


Social, Cultural, And Temporal Dynamics Of The Aids Case Congregation: Early Years Of The Epidemic, Kriss A. Drass, Peter R. Gregware, Michael Musheno Jan 1997

Social, Cultural, And Temporal Dynamics Of The Aids Case Congregation: Early Years Of The Epidemic, Kriss A. Drass, Peter R. Gregware, Michael Musheno

Faculty Scholarship

The article looks at how social and cultural factors shape judicial decisions, with respect to the AIDS epidemic in the United States, with reference to the early years of the epidemic from 1983-1989. The temporal analysis of the opinions of AIDS related cases suggests the emergence of more than one AIDS case congregation, by the end of the 1980s among reported cases. The initial construction of AIDS as a gay disease mobilized gay activists, including gay rights litigators who saw up close the problems that White gay people with AIDS faced in the workplace, housing, and health care. The activists ...
