Dreamers At Cal: The Impact Of Immigration Status On Undocumented Students At The University Of California At Berkeley, Laurel E. Fletcher, Roxanna Altholz

Roxanna Altholz

Lack of lawful immigration status impacts and shapes the experiences of undocumented students at the University of California at Berkeley (U.C.

Party Autonomy And Consumer Arbitration In Conflict: A “Trojan Horse” In The Access To Justice In The E.U. Adr-Directive 2013/11?, Norbert Reich Dec 2015

Party Autonomy And Consumer Arbitration In Conflict: A “Trojan Horse” In The Access To Justice In The E.U. Adr-Directive 2013/11?, Norbert Reich

Penn State Journal of Law & International Affairs

Arbitration clauses in consumer contracts have been subject to controversy in many jurisdictions; recent U.S. and Canadian Supreme Court case law have been used as examples. European Union (E.U.) law, which originally excluded arbitration in general from the Brussels/Rome regimes, has recently taken a mixed, and to some extent limited, approach by including Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) entities “imposing” a solution in its recent ADR Directive 2013/11. There seems to be an indirect encouragement to develop consumer arbitration schemes in E.U. Member States as a second route to justice. It is too early to evaluate ...

Aplicación Del Análisis Económico Del Derecho Como Metodología De Estudio De Una Organización Criminal A Partir De La Propuesta De La Escuela Neoinstitucional, Luis Felipe Jaramillo De Los Ríos Dec 2015

Aplicación Del Análisis Económico Del Derecho Como Metodología De Estudio De Una Organización Criminal A Partir De La Propuesta De La Escuela Neoinstitucional, Luis Felipe Jaramillo De Los Ríos

The Latin American and Iberian Journal of Law and Economics

The recognition of the criminal organization as an economic organization, allows us to understand the strategies and the actions that criminal organizations have, helping to identify potential situations that stimulate the activities of these organizations and providing analysis points to combat their actions.

The study of the criminal organizations begins with the observation of the firm by the New Institutional Economics, which has as a main structure transaction costs, property rights, contracts and institutions. Thus, by analogy, the structure and operation of a criminal organization is similar to a legal organization looking for common ground. This point is to justify ...

La Relación Entre Oficinas De Cobro Y Pandillas. Un Caso De Agencia, María Del Pilar Castillo V.

The Latin American and Iberian Journal of Law and Economics

The aim of this article is to show the existence of a relationship between oficinas de cobro and juvenile gangs using the analytical approach of a principal-agent model and how it is increasing the homicide rate in Cali. Unlike the canonical model of Agency, this analysis incorporates and describes the effects produced by the connection between the principal defined as the oficina de cobro and the agent network, represented by the juvenile gang, and how this connection could increase the likelihood of a greater number of homicides.
