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 ...

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.

The Google Book Settlement And The Fair Use Counterfactual Sep 2012

The Google Book Settlement And The Fair Use Counterfactual

Matthew Sag

The sprawling Google Book litigation began as a dispute between the search engine colossus and a variety of authors and publishers over the legality of book digitization for the purpose of indexing paper collections and making them searchable. However, through the metamorphic power of class-action litigation, a dispute over mere indexing and search has been transformed into a comprehensive agreement over the future of the book as a digital commodity. Understanding this transformation and its implications is the central ambition of this Article. It does so by comparing the pending (now amended) Google Book settlement to the most likely outcome ...


Discourse Or Merely Noise? Regarding The Disagreement On Undocumented Migrants, Markus Gunneflo, Niklas Selberg Sep 2012

Discourse Or Merely Noise? Regarding The Disagreement On Undocumented Migrants, Markus Gunneflo, Niklas Selberg

Niklas Selberg

Drawing on Jacques Rancière’s theorising of the political, this article analyses the disagreement on undocumented migrants in recent legislation in Sweden and within the European Union as well as in Swedish labour union practice. Both the consensus understanding of the issue of undocumented migrants and the materialisation of dissensus through the political activities of undocumented migrants are studied. The aims of the article are: firstly, to show that undocumented migrants in Sweden engage in a political struggle that is not recognised as such, to analyse the structure or conditions of possibility of this non-recognition, and finally, to analyse the ...

Lawyers And Fundamental Moral Responsibility, Daniel Coquillette, R. Michael Cassidy, Judith Mcmorrow Oct 2011

Lawyers And Fundamental Moral Responsibility, Daniel Coquillette, R. Michael Cassidy, Judith Mcmorrow

Judith A. McMorrow

The materials in this book are organized around specific problems designed to encourage and focus class discussion. There are two other inherent organizing principles of the materials in this book. First, the philosophical materials are in the rough order in which the ideas themselves evolved in the history of philosophy. The materials have been revised since the book first was published in 1995 to address some of the burning ethical problems of our day, including terrorism, national security, and abuse of government power. The Second Edition also is reorganized to assist students to better appreciate philosophical theories underpinning discourse about ...


Foreword - In Memory Of Robert J. Lipkin, James May, Erin Daly, Robert Hayman Feb 2011

Foreword - In Memory Of Robert J. Lipkin, James May, Erin Daly, Robert Hayman

Robert L. Hayman

This is a foreword to a compendium of writings by our lost friend and colleague, Bobby Lipkin, collected within a special issue of the Widener Law Review. Bobby’s constitutionalism beholds and celebrates that "no constitutional truths emanate from either politically unaccountable" courts or from paradigmatically imperfect constitutional legal theories. Rather, Bobby’s constitutionalism was participatory and justificatory: it derives from the Constitution’s republican democracy. The Constitution means what We the People allow it to mean at constitutional inflection points in our nation’s history. We miss Bobby dearly.

Promoting Self-Sufficiency? How Hra's Exclusion Of Incarceration From The Definition Of "Temporary Absence" Contradicts Statutory Mandates And Hurts New York Families, Matthew P. Main Cuny School Of Law Dec 2010

Promoting Self-Sufficiency? How Hra's Exclusion Of Incarceration From The Definition Of "Temporary Absence" Contradicts Statutory Mandates And Hurts New York Families, Matthew P. Main Cuny School Of Law

City University of New York Law Review

The New York City Human Resources Administration has implemented a policy that has a punitive and disproportionate impact on poor families of color. The policy departs from the legislative mandate to support New York’s neediest and most at risk by arbitrarily excluding incarceration from the definition of “temporary absence,” as it applies to the Cash Assistance program. Aside from the discriminatory impact on poor children and families, the policy decision comes at a higher cost to New York taxpayers in the midst of a financial crisis. This Comment evaluates the legal flaws in the policy, the persons it targets ...

Advocacy For Tenant And Community Empowerment: Reflections On My First Year In Practice, Shekar Krishnan Dec 2010

Advocacy For Tenant And Community Empowerment: Reflections On My First Year In Practice, Shekar Krishnan

City University of New York Law Review

In May 2009, the landlord of a rent-stabilized building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn openly declared his intention to force out the current tenants if they did not leave on their own. Located on North 8th Street right off trendy Bedford Avenue, the property was prime real estate in Williamsburg. The only obstacles that stood between the landlord and the potential for him to reap large profits were the rent-stabilized status of the building and all the tenants who paid the regulated rent, a fraction of the market rate. Once he forced those tenants to leave, he could “gut rehab” the apartments ...
