Thinking About Law And Policy: Lessons For Lawyers, Matthew S. R. Palmer Dec 2006

Thinking About Law And Policy: Lessons For Lawyers, Matthew S. R. Palmer

The Hon Justice Matthew Palmer

The paper outlines a simplified view of the paradigmatic approaches of the disciplines of law to legal issues and policy analysis to policy issues. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of the inherent biases likely to emanate from each approach when applied to matters of policy advice within Government. It suggests that, when approaching policy issues, those with legal training should be aware of the need to: identify the government’s objective; identifying all relevant policy options; and the need to undertake a broad analysis of all relevant considerations.


"Resolving The Foreshore And Seabed Dispute", Matthew S. R. Palmer Dec 2006

"Resolving The Foreshore And Seabed Dispute", Matthew S. R. Palmer

The Hon Justice Matthew Palmer

There has been serious political and legal conflict in New Zealand in recent years between indigenous Maori claims of rights to the foreshore and seabed and the understandings of non-Maori New Zealanders. This book chapter analyses the political leadership provided in this conflict from 1997 to 2005. It applies an approach to leadership developed by Ronald Heifetz which emphasizes the importance of identifying and addressing the real issues underlying a conflict. Applying Heifetz's diagnostic to the foreshore and seabed conflict suggests that the absence of constitutional mechanisms for dealing with the relationships between the Crown, Maori and other New ...

Refusing The Right To Refuse: Coerced Treatment Of Mentally Disabled Persons, Grant H. Morris Dec 2006

Refusing The Right To Refuse: Coerced Treatment Of Mentally Disabled Persons, Grant H. Morris

Grant H Morris

Under the common law doctrine of informed consent, if a person is competent to understand the risks, benefits, and alternatives to proposed treatment, that person is allowed to decide whether to accept or reject the proposed treatment. Informed consent is not required if the person is incompetent or if an emergency arises that necessitates treatment to save the person’s life.

Nevertheless, various devices are used to deny mentally disordered persons their right to refuse treatment even when they are competent decisionmakers and even when no emergency exists. For example, some courts substitute a “limited due process” model for a ...


The Confederate Sequestration Act, Daniel W. Hamilton Dec 2006

The Confederate Sequestration Act, Daniel W. Hamilton

Daniel W. Hamilton

In the South there was near ideological consensus on the legal basis for seizing Union property during the Civil War. The United States was an enemy belligerent whose property was, at international law, subject to permanent confiscation during war. Through the resort to international law, the Confederacy was able not only to assert its sovereignty, but also to craft a far more rigorous and effective confiscation regime much quicker than their Northern counterparts. U.S. citizens were, at Confederate law, foreigners, and were not due the protections of domestic Confederate constitutional law. U.S. citizens were not traitors or rebels ...

Derecho A La Intimidad Y Responsabilidad Civil. El Refuerzo De Los Derechos Fundamentales A Través De Los Remedios Civilísticos, Leysser L. Leon

Leysser L. León

¿Puede la responsabilidad civil cumplir funciones de refuerzo de derechos de la personalidad (derechos fundamentales)? La protección resarcitoria de la intimidad es la clave para analizar el impacto de esta nueva función de una institución del derecho privado que se renueva permanentemente.


The Psychology Behind Case Briefing: A Powerful Cognitive Schema, Leah M. Christensen Dec 2006

The Psychology Behind Case Briefing: A Powerful Cognitive Schema, Leah M. Christensen

Leah M Christensen

Abstract: Why is case briefing so important for first year law students? This article explores the way in which law students learn in the context of case analysis. As new students approach case analysis for the first time, the case brief is an effective “schema” to provide students with a framework within which to analyze a legal opinion. Case briefing does more than simply allow students to pull out the holding of a case; it helps beginning law students organize a legal opinion’s analytical framework accurately and efficiently. This article urges legal educators to consider how the current research ...


Correlation Versus Causality: Further Thoughts On The Law Review/Law School Liaison, Ronen Perry Dec 2006

Correlation Versus Causality: Further Thoughts On The Law Review/Law School Liaison, Ronen Perry

Ronen Perry

This Essay is the third in a series of articles discussing the relative value of American law reviews, and a response to Professor Alfred Brophy's elaboration of my initial study of the high mathematical correlation between law review quality, as manifested in citation-based measures, and law school reputation. Given my prior interest in the relative value of American law reviews, I have used the abovementioned correlation as a means to explain some of the variance in quality among law reviews. Brophy's empirical findings overlap mine, yet the extent of his analysis, as well as his interpretation and utilization ...


The Relative Value Of American Law Reviews: Refinement And Implementation, Ronen Perry Dec 2006

The Relative Value Of American Law Reviews: Refinement And Implementation, Ronen Perry

Ronen Perry

This Article complements a recently published paper in which I discussed the theoretical and methodological aspects of law review rankings. The purpose of this Article is twofold: refinement of the theoretical framework, and implementation. It proposes, defends, and implements a complex ranking method for general-interest student-edited law reviews, based on a judicious weighting of normalized citation frequency and normalized impact factor. It then analyzes the distribution of journals’ scores, and the diminishing marginal difference between them. Finally, it examines the correlation between law schools’ positions in the U.S. News & World Report 2006 ranking and their flagship law reviews’ positions ...


Tort Liability Of Recalcitrant Husbands, Yehiel S. Kaplan, Ronen Perry Dec 2006

Tort Liability Of Recalcitrant Husbands, Yehiel S. Kaplan, Ronen Perry

Ronen Perry

A Jewish man and a Jewish woman, both residents of the State of Israel, are married in a Jewish religious ceremony. After their relationship encounters difficulties, the woman applies for a divorce in accordance with Jewish law (hereinafter: a Gett). A Rabbinical Court determines that the man has to grant his wife a Gett, but he disobeys the ruling. The Rabbinical Courts (Enforcement of Divorce Rulings) Act, 1995, enables the court to impose various sanctions on the recalcitrant husband but despite the sanctions, or as a result of the court's reluctance to impose them, the man remains recalcitrant. Under ...

The Search For Minimal Risk In International Pediatric Clinical Trials, Tracey E. Chan Dec 2006

The Search For Minimal Risk In International Pediatric Clinical Trials, Tracey E. Chan

Tracey E Chan

Difficult ethical and regulatory challenges are raised whenever children are enrolled in non-beneficial research. Their resolution takes on new significance in the light of transnational pharmaceutical development trials in developing countries. This paper examines what international guidelines exist and how they address the challenges posed by involving children in non-beneficial clinical trials, focussing on the concept of ‘minimal’ risk as a legal and ethical standard to protect children from exposure to unwarranted risks presented by such trials. It reviews several domestic approaches to the question of minimal risk before evaluating the adequacy of existing international guidelines to address the needs ...


All In The Family: The Apocalyptic Legal Tradition As Crit Theory, Marc L. Roark Dec 2006

All In The Family: The Apocalyptic Legal Tradition As Crit Theory, Marc L. Roark

Marc L. Roark

In 1986, a new genre of American legal education emerged upon the American legal conscience. Regent University (then CBN University) opened the first expressly evangelical law school and initially only accepted committed evangelical believers into its program. Since Regent’s beginnings, at least three other law schools have opened with similarly expressed missions of recapturing the faith in the teaching of American law; the most recent is Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University. This essay draws attention to Regent and Liberty as evangelical manifestations of American jurisprudential philosophy. Though formed out of a perceived need to inject conservative values (often times ...


The Iron Cold Of The Marshall Trilogy, Matthew L.M. Fletcher Dec 2006

This article examines the Marshall Trilogy of federal Indian law from numerous perspectives - legal pedagogy, legal history, federalism and constitutional law, law and literature, and law and economics.


Same-Sex Marriage, Indian Tribes, And The Constitution, Matthew L.M. Fletcher Dec 2006

Same-Sex Marriage, Indian Tribes, And The Constitution, Matthew L.M. Fletcher

Matthew L.M. Fletcher

A same-sex marriage amendment, depending on the text, might serve to incorporate Indian tribes into the federal union as the third sovereign. The Constitution has not been amended to incorporate Indian tribes into the federal union, rendering their place in Our Federalism uncertain and unpredictable. A same-sex marriage amendment that applies to limit or expand tribal authority to recognize or authorize same-sex marriage could constitute an implicit recognition of Indian tribes as the third sovereign in the American system of federalism. Even an amendment that excludes mention of Indian tribes may have something to say about Indian tribes as the ...


The Alchemy Of Junk: Patent Law And Non-Coding Dna, Matthew Rimmer Dec 2006

The Alchemy Of Junk: Patent Law And Non-Coding Dna, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

This article considers the recent international controversy over the patents held by a Melbourne firm, Genetic Technologies Limited (GTG), in respect of non-coding DNA and genomic mapping. It explores the ramifications of the GTG dispute in terms of licensing, litigation and policy reform, and - as a result of this dispute - the perceived conflict between law and science. GTG has embarked upon an ambitious licensing program with twenty seven commercial licensees and five research licensees. Most significantly, GTG has obtained an exclusive licence from Myriad Genetics to use and exploit its medical diagnostics in Australia, New Zealand, and the Asia-Pacific region ...


The Idea Of The Law Review: Scholarship, Prestige, And Open Access, Michael J. Madison Dec 2006

The Idea Of The Law Review: Scholarship, Prestige, And Open Access, Michael J. Madison

Michael J. Madison

This Essay was written as part of a Symposium on open access publishing for legal scholarship, held at Lewis & Clark Law School. It makes the claim that “open access” publishing models will succeed, or not, to the extent that they account for the existing “economy of prestige” that drives law reviews and legal scholarship. What may seem like a lot of uncharitable commentary is intended instead as an expression of guarded optimism: Imaginative reuse of some existing tools of scholarly publishing (even by some marginalized members of the prestige economy – or perhaps especially by them) may facilitate the emergence of ...


The Economics Of Open Access Law Publishing, Jessica Litman Dec 2006

The Economics Of Open Access Law Publishing, Jessica Litman

Jessica Litman

The conventional model of scholarly publishing uses the copyright system as a lever to induce commercial publishers and printers to disseminate the results of scholarly research. The role of copyright in the dissemination of scholarly research is in many ways curious, since neither authors nor the entities who compensate them for their authorship are motivated by the incentives supplied by the copyright system. Rather, copyright is a bribe to entice professional publishers and printers to reproduce and distribute scholarly works. As technology has spawned new methods of restricting access to works, and copyright law has enhanced copyright owners’ rights to ...

Sex And Capital: What They Tell Us About Ourselves, Claire Moore Dickerson

Child Laundering: How The Intercountry Adoption System Legitimizes And Incentivizes The Practices Of Buying, Trafficking, Kidnapping, And Stealing Children, David M. Smolin Dec 2006

Child Laundering: How The Intercountry Adoption System Legitimizes And Incentivizes The Practices Of Buying, Trafficking, Kidnapping, And Stealing Children, David M. Smolin

David M. Smolin

This article documents and analyzes a substantial incidence of "child laundering" within the intercountry adoption system. Child laundering occurs when children are taken illegally from birth families through child buying or kidnapping, and then "laundered" through the adoption system as "orphans" and then "adoptees." The article then proposes reforms to the intercountry adoption system that could substantially reduce the incidence of child laundering.


El Problema De Las Fuentes Del Derecho: Una Perspectiva Desde La Argumentación Jurídica, Jorge Gonzalez-Jacome Dec 2006

El Problema De Las Fuentes Del Derecho: Una Perspectiva Desde La Argumentación Jurídica, Jorge Gonzalez-Jacome

Jorge Gonzalez-Jacome

This article argues that there is a very vast complexity in the theory of sources of law. According to the traditional doctrine the sources are ordered in a coherent and precise manner and the interpreter has only to apply a clear hierarchy. However, looking at the way some judges in Colombia have applied their sources, it seems that the traditional way of looking to this problem is not an accurate description of what is happening in practice. Therefore, an alternative way of understanding the practice of our judges is proposed, in order to build a description that shows us in ...


Judicial Incorporation Of Trade Usages: A Functional Solution To The Opportunism Problem, Juliet P. Kostritsky Dec 2006

Judicial Incorporation Of Trade Usages: A Functional Solution To The Opportunism Problem, Juliet P. Kostritsky

Juliet P Kostritsky

This Article argues that the strategy of rejecting trade usages unless they are part of the express contract is too rigid. The rejection is premised on an overly narrow cost/benefit analysis that fails to account for the functional role that such usages may play in curbing opportunistic behavior and thereby increasing gains from trade and overall welfare. Plain meaning and incorporation must each be evaluated to see how each one can achieve the parties’ presumed instrumental goals of curbing opportunism—the “hold-up” game. Decision makers should also consider the particular reasons why parties failed to include the trade usages ...


International Trade In The San Bernardino Region: Transportation, Trends, And Employment, Mirya R. Holman, Travis Coan Dec 2006

International Trade In The San Bernardino Region: Transportation, Trends, And Employment, Mirya R. Holman, Travis Coan

Mirya R Holman

International trade presents significant employment, growth, and revenue opportunities for the San Bernardino region, which encompasses San Bernardino County and several cities in Riverside County and is located to the immediate east of Los Angeles County. Proximity to the San Pedro Bay Port complex (which includes the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach) and access to a transportation and logistics network expanding out across the U.S., makes the San Bernardino region a prime location for companies participating in international trade activity. The purpose of this report is to quantify trade activity in the region, while also estimating the ...

The Confusions And Uncertainties Thwarting Family Courts In Bangladesh, Dr. Zahidul Islam Biswas Dec 2006

The Confusions And Uncertainties Thwarting Family Courts In Bangladesh, Dr. Zahidul Islam Biswas

Dr. Zahidul Islam

The purpose of establishment of Family Courts in Bangladesh was to ensure a quick, effective and amicable disposal of some of the family matters, which the traditional civil courts had failed to successfully deal with. Unfortunately, the noble aim of introducing Family Courts has not been expectantly achieved though already more than two decades have passed after the courts’ coming into operation. There are many and diverse type of reasons behind such letdown. Given the socio-economic grounds, the procedural as well as substantive loopholes in the ordinance and related laws are not negligible. Besides, there are some misconceptions. This article ...
