Deportation And Justice: A Constitutional Dialogue, Daniel Kanstroom Jul 2000

Deportation And Justice: A Constitutional Dialogue, Daniel Kanstroom

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Recent statutory changes to the United States immigration law have resulted in a large increase in the number of lawful permanent resident noncitizens who are deported because of prior criminal conduct. Now, deportation is often a virtually automatic consequence of conviction for an increasingly minor array of crimes including possessory drug offenses and shoplifting. Under current statutory law, permanent resident noncitizens may be deported for crimes that were not grounds for deportation when they were committed and there may be no possibiilty of mercy or humanitarian relief. This Dialogue explores arguments for and against this system. Specifically, it examines the ...


Gap-Filling And Freedom Of Contract, Shumei Lu May 2000

Gap-Filling And Freedom Of Contract, Shumei Lu

LLM Theses and Essays

When a client asks his lawyer what his duties are under a particular contract, normally the lawyer’s first response is “show me the contract.” Does the contract provide all the contract duties in its expressed form? Definitely not. By now everyone acknowledges that, to some extent, all contracts have some gaps. Even the most carefully drafted document rests on volumes of assumptions that cannot be explicitly expressed.1 The inevitability of gaps reflects both our “relative ignorance of fact” and “our relative indeterminacy of aim.” Generally speaking, there are three types of gaps: first, the parties to a contract ...


Of Law, Lawlessness, And Sovereignty : Multinational Peacekeeping And International Law, Antje Mays Apr 2000

Of Law, Lawlessness, And Sovereignty : Multinational Peacekeeping And International Law, Antje Mays

Dacus Library Faculty Publications

Laws of war have been carefully defined by individual nations’ own codes of law as well as by supranational bodies. Yet the international scene has seen an increasing movement away from traditionally declared war toward multinational peacekeeping missions geared at containing local conflicts when perceived as potential threats to their respective regions’ political stability. While individual nations’ laws governing warfare presuppose national sovereignty, the multinational nature of peacekeeping scenarios can blur the lines of command structures, soldiers’ national loyalties, occupational jurisdiction, and raise profound questions as to which countries’ moral sense/governmental system is to be the one upheld. Historically ...

Watching The Watchdogs: Holding The Un Accountable For International Humanitarian Law Violations Of The ‘Blue Helmets’, Jackson N. Maogoto Jan 2000

Watching The Watchdogs: Holding The Un Accountable For International Humanitarian Law Violations Of The ‘Blue Helmets’, Jackson N. Maogoto

Jackson Nyamuya Maogoto

The political climate is ripe for the United Nations system to successfully and effectively provide global collective security. Now that relations have improved between the ‘East’ and ‘West’ the United Nations will indeed be able to broaden its role, and perhaps operate to its full capacity - to call into being the ‘New World Order,’ characterised by a Security Council able to respond swiftly and effectively to aggression and massive human rights violations through ‘police action’. However the significant and documented international humanitarian law violations by UN forces in the 1990s has raised the stakes. Thrice in the last decade of ...
