Gandhi’S Prophecy: Corporate Violence And A Mindful Law For Bhopal, Nehal A. Patel Dec 2015

Gandhi’S Prophecy: Corporate Violence And A Mindful Law For Bhopal, Nehal A. Patel

Nehal A. Patel

AbstractOver thirty years have passed since the Bhopal chemical disaster began,and in that time scholars of corporate social responsibility (CSR) havediscussed and debated several frameworks for improving corporate responseto social and environmental problems. However, CSR discourse rarelydelves into the fundamental architecture of legal thought that oftenbuttresses corporate dominance in the global economy. Moreover, CSRdiscourse does little to challenge the ontological and epistemologicalassumptions that form the foundation for modern economics and the role ofcorporations in the world.I explore methods of transforming CSR by employing the thought ofMohandas Gandhi. I pay particular attention to Gandhi’s critique ofindustrialization and principle ...

The Evolution Of The Digital Millennium Copyright Act; Changing Interpretations Of The Dmca And Future Implications For Copyright Holders, Hillary A. Henderson Jan 2014

The Evolution Of The Digital Millennium Copyright Act; Changing Interpretations Of The Dmca And Future Implications For Copyright Holders, Hillary A. Henderson

Hillary A Henderson

Copyright law rewards an artificial monopoly to individual authors for their creations. This reward is based on the belief that, by granting authors the exclusive right to reproduce their works, they receive an incentive and means to create, which in turn advances the welfare of the general public by “promoting the progress of science and useful arts.” Copyright protection subsists . . . in original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression, now known or later developed, from which they can be perceived, reproduced, or otherwise communicated, either directly or with the aid of a machine or device . . . . In no ...

Judicial Behavior And Religious Language, Braden W. Johnson Jan 2012

Judicial Behavior And Religious Language, Braden W. Johnson

Braden W Johnson

This study provides qualitative and quantitative evidence supporting the premise that the court of venue where a case is tried (Dependent Variable) strongly affects the number of religious references used by the judges in their published opinion (Independent Variable). The data set is from a content analysis of 15 lower court cases and their 15 corresponding Supreme Cases. I find that the US Supreme Court is far more likely to use religious and moralistic references than any lower court. This evidence is used to support the idea that a significant quantity of lower court judges do not vote solely on ...

The Fox News Effect: Does Polarized News-Media Fill Traditional News Roles?, Braden W. Johnson, Professor Richard Davis

Braden W Johnson

In this study, I use qualitative and quantitative methods to gauge the effect that consumption of highly polarized news-media (i.e. Glen Beck, Chris Matthews, etc.) has on its consumers. Using PEW survey data, I compare those who frequently consume such media against those who do not, and I find that consumers of polarized media are more likely to score highly on a current events test, and are more likely to be registered to vote, with 95% confidence.

It then examines recent legal events including federal statutory changes, three Supreme Court cases, and a federal circuit court case which have limited legal resources for those who cannot pay.
