The United Kingdom Bill Of Rights 1998: The Modernisation Of Rights In The Old World, Clive Walker, Russell L. Weaver Jun 2000

The United Kingdom Bill Of Rights 1998: The Modernisation Of Rights In The Old World, Clive Walker, Russell L. Weaver

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Into a steadfastly conservative constitutional landscape, the United Kingdom Parliament has now introduced a Bill of Rights, the Human Rights Act of 1998, which takes effect in October 2000. The Act provides for a full catalogue of civil and political rights which are enforceable by the courts. This development raises two questions in evaluating the future of English law. First, does this signify the dawn of a new British radicalism? And second, why has it happened now? In answering these questions in relation to England and Wales, Part I of this Article provides an introduction to the traditional treatment of ...


Competency And Common Law: Why And How Decision-Making Capacity Criteria Should Be Drawn From The Capacity-Determination Process, Charles Baron May 2000

Competency And Common Law: Why And How Decision-Making Capacity Criteria Should Be Drawn From The Capacity-Determination Process, Charles Baron

Charles H. Baron

Determining competence to request physician-assisted suicide should be no more difficult than determining competence to refuse life-prolonging treatment. In both cases, criteria and procedures should be developed out of the process of actually making capacity determinations; they should not be promulgated a priori. Because patient demeanor plays a critical role in capacity determinations, it should be made part of the record of such determinations through greater use of video- and audiotapes.


Fighting Gender Discrimination In The Chinese Workplace, Christine M. Bulger May 2000

Fighting Gender Discrimination In The Chinese Workplace, Christine M. Bulger

Boston College Third World Law Journal

This Note analyzes the avenues available to Chinese women in their struggle for workplace equality. While China has enacted a number of laws that appear to afford women equal opportunity in employment, the ineffectiveness of these laws is quite apparent. There are many reasons for this, including the inherent inadequacies of many of China's statutes and of its Constitution, barriers and failures within the legal and court systems, and the traditional inferior status of women in Chinese society. However, as young Chinese citizens are becoming less dependent upon their government, they are also becoming more willing than earlier generations ...

What Makes 'Model' Sexual Offenses - A Canadian Perspective, Christine Boyle Jan 2000

What Makes 'Model' Sexual Offenses - A Canadian Perspective, Christine Boyle

Faculty Publications (Emeriti)

This paper, originally presented at a conference on the US Model Penal Code, discusses how Canadian reform of the law of sexual assault could contribute to a new Model Code. While criteria for "modelness" are elusive, model offenses must at least be consistent with constitutional norms and concerns about legality, such as fair notice. Equality rights should not be neglected. The author discusses both Canadian efforts to make sexual assault law egalitarian and criticism of such efforts. More generally, in the context of a body of law generating significant controversy, a model law should contain a clear articulation of what ...


Tracking And Resisting Backlash Against Equality Gains In Sexual Offence Law, Sheila Mcintyre, Christine Lesley Boyle, Lee Lakeman, Elizabeth Sheehy Jan 2000

Tracking And Resisting Backlash Against Equality Gains In Sexual Offence Law, Sheila Mcintyre, Christine Lesley Boyle, Lee Lakeman, Elizabeth Sheehy

Faculty Publications (Emeriti)

The authors document feminist efforts to expose, challenge, and eliminate direct, indirect, and systemic inequality in the substantive, evidentiary, and procedural laws proscribing sexual offences and in the enforcement and application of those laws have not only been consistently resisted by police, lawyers, judges, and juries, but have also consistently generated backlash against those responsible for and/or supportive of such egalitarian change. Actual and imagined social, economic, political and legal equality gains by women as a class-however unevenly distributed- have triggered a variety of types of backlash, including an escalation in actual or threatened violence against women accompanied by ...

This Article is presented in three Parts.
