Truth Behind Bars: Colombian Paramilitary Leaders In U.S. Custody, Laurel E. Fletcher, Roxanna Altholz Oct 2016

Truth Behind Bars: Colombian Paramilitary Leaders In U.S. Custody, Laurel E. Fletcher, Roxanna Altholz

Roxanna Altholz

The United States should reform its policies and practices regarding criminal prosecutions of extradited Colombian paramilitaries to better support U.S. foreign policy interests by promoting Defendants’ cooperation with Colombian law enforcement. Active U.S. support of Colombian accountability measures will (1) strengthen the rule of law in Colombia; (2) address unsolved murders of Colombian trade unionists, an obstacle to securing a U.S.-Colombia free trade agreement; and (3) align U.S. foreign policy with international law.


Federalizing Public Education, Thomas Kleven Jul 2015

Federalizing Public Education, Thomas Kleven

Thomas Kleven

This article assesses the case for federalizing public education in the United States. The starting point is a conception of democracy I call equitable sharing, meaning that the goods of social life must be equitably distributed among all society’s members. I argue that equitable sharing mandates society to ensure that all children have access to a relatively equal educational opportunity—i.e., a comparable opportunity to advance educationally as far as their abilities, interests and willingness to strive allow—at least through elementary and secondary school. To set the stage for discussing the merits of federalization, I examine various ...

Alquiler Coches

Objective This meta-study intends to elucidate schizophrenia–pregnancy inferences.

Methods A total of 63 quasi-randomized, case–control, linkage studies on outcomes of singleton pregnancies in women with schizophrenia are identified through PubMed, ACOG, and SCOPUS. A sample of 216 pregnant and puerperal women with schizophrenia, allocated from studies of level I–IIA evidence, is compared with a sample of 487 births to unaffected women. Calculations use births as unit of analysis. Poisson regression model is used in exchangeable correlation structure.

Results Older age (2.13), excessive smoking (1.85) and less antenatal care (1.92) in women with schizophrenia determine ...

(A) To examine the impact of serious mental illness on female sexual functioning; (B) To determine personal and contextual barriers in sexual health of women with DSM-IV Axis-I disorders. A mixed-method study explores perceived sexual health in cross-section of 44 consentable women with serious mental illnesses (SMI). Subscales of sexual activity are used as measurable outcomes. History of sexual abuse (59%), long-term sex abstinence (72.7%), client-provider poor communications (86.3%), and lack of awareness (79.6%) are related to suboptimal sexual health of women with SMI. Satisfaction and pleasure from sexual experience are predominantly affected symptoms that confer higher ...

Unifying The Field Of Comparative Judicial Politics: Towards A General Theory Of Judicial Behaviour, Arthur Dyevre Feb 2015

Unifying The Field Of Comparative Judicial Politics: Towards A General Theory Of Judicial Behaviour, Arthur Dyevre

Arthur Dyevre

The field of judicial politics had long been neglected by political scientists outside the United States. But the past twenty years have witnessed considerable change. There is now a large body of scholarship on European courts and judges. And judicial politics is on its way to become a sub-field of comparative politics in its own right. Examining the models used in the literature, this article suggests that the geographical convergence is also bringing about theoretical convergence. One manifestation of theoretical convergence is that models of judicial decision-making once deemed inapplicable in Europe are now used in studies of European courts ...

Ordinary Creativity In Patent Law: The Artist Within The Scientist, Amy Landers Aug 2014

Ordinary Creativity In Patent Law: The Artist Within The Scientist, Amy Landers

Amy L. Landers

Patent law is intended to promote the creativity of scientists and engi-neers. The system recognizes that the work of the individual is the engine that ultimately increases the state of scientific knowledge. As economist Paul Romer recognized, “Technological advance comes from things that people do.” Furthering creativity represents the constitutional, theoretical and doc-trinal heart of patent law. Yet the field has not meaningfully evaluated the fundamental question of what creativity is. Using theories from psychology, sociology, history and the philosophy of science, this work examines and pro-poses how patent law can formulate a legal conception of creativity.

To undertake this ...


Patent Valuation Theory And The Economics Of Improvement, Amy Landers Aug 2014

Patent Valuation Theory And The Economics Of Improvement, Amy Landers

Amy L. Landers

In her response to Professor Golden's Principles of Patent Remedies, Professor Landers identifies three threads that underlie the debate on patent remedies. First, patent value may be difficult to define because of certain indeterminacies. Second, economic and technological contingencies may distort the amounts paid for patents. Third, principles of adaptation and implementation might bring the field to a theoretical consensus about patent value. After analyzing Prof. Golden’s principles in the context of each thread, Prof. Landers proposes that, in order to bridge the differences in current theoretical viewpoints, the explicit addition of the economics of improvement is necessary.

The Ecological And Civil Mainsprings Of Property: An Experimental Economic History Of Whalers’ Rules Of Capture, Bart Wilson, Taylor Jaworski, Karl Schurter, Andrew Smyth Aug 2014

The Ecological And Civil Mainsprings Of Property: An Experimental Economic History Of Whalers’ Rules Of Capture, Bart Wilson, Taylor Jaworski, Karl Schurter, Andrew Smyth

Bart J Wilson

This paper uses a laboratory experiment to probe the proposition that property emerges anarchically out of social custom. We test the hypothesis that whalers in the 18th and 19th century developed rules of conduct that minimized the sum of the transaction and production costs of capturing their prey, the primary implication being that different ecological conditions lead to different rules of capture. Holding everything else constant, we find that simply imposing two different types of prey is insufficient to observe two different rules of capture. Another factor is essential, namely that the members of the community are civil-minded.

'Useful Illegalities' In Corporations From A Law And Economics Perspective ('Nützliche Gesetzesverletzungen' In Kapitalgesellschaften Aus Rechtsökonomischer Sicht), Martin Gelter, Kristoffel Grechenig Apr 2014

'Useful Illegalities' In Corporations From A Law And Economics Perspective ('Nützliche Gesetzesverletzungen' In Kapitalgesellschaften Aus Rechtsökonomischer Sicht), Martin Gelter, Kristoffel Grechenig

Kristoffel Grechenig

Entrepreneurship sometimes involves violations of legal norms, such as parking prohibitions, competition law, and others. According to the prevailing view in the legal literature, the agent or manager (and not the company) is required to bear the costs, even if the activity was beneficial ex ante for the company. This approach is problematic from a social welfare perspective. Since the company and its owners keep the benefits, they have an incentive to choose the optimal activity level only if they also bear the costs.

We analyze the consequences for different types of legal prohibitions and argue that for violations of ...

Corporate Social Responsibility In China: Window Dressing Or Structural Change?, Li-Wen Lin Nov 2013

Corporate Social Responsibility In China: Window Dressing Or Structural Change?, Li-Wen Lin

Li-Wen Lin

In recent years many indigenous corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives have emerged in China. The Chinese CSR initiatives include laws and regulations, governmental instructions and guidelines, non-governmental standards and organizations. The recent growth of the Chinese CSR initiatives deserves an analysis of the CSRdevelopment in China, especially given that China’s international image is usually associated with human rights abuses, substandard products, sweatshops, and serious environmental pollution. How sincere and serious are the Chinese CSR measures, simply window dressing or any real structural change? This article overviews major Chinese CSR initiatives and analyzes the Chinese CSR development from the perspectives ...

Here's Hulu: How Popular Culture Helps Teach The Next Generation Of Lawyers, Victoria Salzmann

Victoria Salzmann

Imagine you are a teacher trying to explain in the abstract a theory such as conspiracy formation. First, you might list and explain the legal elements. Perhaps you would use a hypothetical to ground it in concrete facts. Even better, you could reference a scene from a movie your student was likely to have seen where the characters form a string of conspiracies. Best of all, perhaps you would show your student a clip from the movie and pinpoint where and how the conspiracy was formed. If you were the student, which of these mechanisms would be the quickest and ...
