Prosecuting Rape Victims While Rapists Run Free: The Consequences Of Police Failure To Investigate Sex Crimes In Britain And The United States, Lisa Avalos 2019 University of Arkansas School of Law

Prosecuting Rape Victims While Rapists Run Free: The Consequences Of Police Failure To Investigate Sex Crimes In Britain And The United States, Lisa Avalos

Michigan Journal of Gender and Law

Imagine that a close friend is raped, and you encourage her to report it to the police. At first, she thinks that the police are taking her report seriously, but the investigation does not seem to move forward. The next thing she knows, they accuse her of lying and ultimately file charges against her. You and your friend are in shock; this outcome never entered your minds. This nightmare may seem inconceivable, but it has in fact occurred repeatedly in both the United States and Britain—countries that are typically lauded for their high levels of gender equality. In Britain ...


Clinical And Experiential Learning In Canadian Law Schools: Current Perspectives, Gemma Smyth, Samantha Hale, Neil Gold 2018 Faculty of Law, University of Windsor

Clinical And Experiential Learning In Canadian Law Schools: Current Perspectives, Gemma Smyth, Samantha Hale, Neil Gold

Law Publications

What are some of the challenges and possibilities animating modern Canadian clinical and experiential learning in law? This question was the starting point for our research, which examined two sets of data. In the first part of this project, we analyzed available information on existing clinical and experiential learning programs in Canadian law schools. This data revealed a growing quantity and variety of programs across the country. We then held qualitative interviews with deans, professors, and clinicians across Canada regarding their views of clinical and experiential learning. While the interviews suggested that many of the same financial and curricular challenges ...


Regulation And Supervision Of The Otc Derivatives Market, Ligia Catherine Arias Barrera 2018 University of Warwick

Regulation And Supervision Of The Otc Derivatives Market, Ligia Catherine Arias Barrera

Ligia Catherine Arias Barrera

The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market has captured the attention of regulators after the Global Financial Crisis due to the risk it poses to financial stability. Under the post-crisis regulatory reform the concentration of business, and risks, among a few major players is changed by the concentration of a large portion of transactions in the new market infrastructures, the Central Counterparties (CCPs).

This book, for the first time, analyses the regulatory response of the United Kingdom and the United States, the two largest centres of OTC derivatives transactions, and highlights their shortcomings. The book uses a normative risk-based approach to regulation ...


Article-Teaching Ethics With Sports: Recent Developments, Adam Epstein, Barbara Osborne 2018 Central Michigan University

Article-Teaching Ethics With Sports: Recent Developments, Adam Epstein, Barbara Osborne

Adam Epstein

The purpose of this article is to introduce some of the recent (since 2011) situations and incidents at various levels of sport competition. The article can be used as a springboard for further research and exploration, but our intent is to focus on ethical and legal examples that can be used in the classroom primarily for pedagogical purposes.  Using sport examples is often an engaging way to teach ethics in the context of a business or sports law course.  We divide our analysis into four major categories: Part I: addresses youth (including amateur and recreational) and interscholastic sport. Part II ...

Behind The Numbers: Conditions Of Schooling In Boston (1981), Marcy Murninghan 2018 University of Massachusetts Boston

Behind The Numbers: Conditions Of Schooling In Boston (1981), Marcy Murninghan

New England Journal of Public Policy

This article includes portions of a report on the structure, governance, operations, and effectiveness of the Boston School Committee that was commissioned by the Boston Municipal Research Bureau in 1980. The passages provide an overview of the mandate, background, and recommendations, examining how a set of prominent professionals and citizens viewed the problem facing school department governance, including its isolation and the longstanding credibility gap fueled by patronage politics. It also looks at continued tensions between “equality” and “quality,” which occupied the heart of court-ordered desegregation; rising demands on a system that lacked the capacity to serve a broad array ...


Getting Power Back: Court Restoration Of Executive Authority In Boston City Government (1985), Marcy Murninghan 2018 University of Massachusetts Boston

Getting Power Back: Court Restoration Of Executive Authority In Boston City Government (1985), Marcy Murninghan

New England Journal of Public Policy

This article, originally published in 1985, is based partly on the author’s experience with the Boston school desegregation case, but goes beyond it. It chronicles some of the events that occurred when a state and a federal court attempted to disengage from active jurisdiction over two Boston public systems: the Boston Public Schools and the Boston Housing Authority. It makes three proposals, which, if enacted, would help to keep the courts out of day-to-day management of municipal operations. It also makes some generalizations about the court-agency interplay that are relevant to the post-remedial phase of institutional reform litigation. The ...

A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library 2018 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The purpose of this bibliography is to record in one place the substantial body of scholarship produced by the current faculty at the Catholic University, Columbus School of Law. From its humble beginnings under the tutelage of founding Dean William Callyhan Robinson, through its adolescent period when, like so many other American law schools, it was trying to define its pedagogical niche, to its eventual merger with the Columbus University Law School in 1954, the law school at Catholic University has always retained a scholarly and remarkably productive faculty. The sheer quantity of writing, the breadth of research and the ...


The New Additional Conveyance Duties Regime In The Stamp Duties Act, Vincent Ooi 2018 Selected Works

The New Additional Conveyance Duties Regime In The Stamp Duties Act, Vincent Ooi

Vincent Ooi

The Stamp Duties (Amendment) Bill (Bill No. 18/2017) (the “Bill”) was passed on 10 March 2017 as an urgent bill. The Bill introduced a new Additional Conveyance Duties (“ACD”) regime, designed to levy stamp duties on transfers of interests in Property-Holding Entities (“PHEs”) and equalise the treatment between direct transfers of real property and indirect transfers through the use of PHEs. While the ACD regime was introduced partly in response to tax avoidance measures, its effect is not so confined.

The new Additional Conveyance Duties regime has gone beyond attempting to achieve tax neutrality between direct transfers of residential ...
