Trial And Error: Lawyers And Nonlawyer Advocates, Anna E. Carpenter, Alyx Mark, Colleen Shanahan 2016 University of Tulsa College of Law

Trial And Error: Lawyers And Nonlawyer Advocates, Anna E. Carpenter, Alyx Mark, Colleen Shanahan

Anna E. Carpenter

Nonlawyer advocates are one proposed solution to the access to justice crisis and are currently permitted to practice in some civil justice settings. Theory and research suggest nonlawyers might be effective in some civil justice settings, yet we know very little, empirically, about nonlawyer practice in the United States. Using data from more than 5,000 unemployment insurance appeal hearings and interviews with lawyers and nonlawyers, this article explores how both types of representatives learn to do their work and what this means for their effectiveness. Building on recent research regarding the importance of procedural knowledge and relational expertise as ...

Black-White Differences In Schooling Investment And Human Capital Production In Segregated Schools, Peter F. Orazem 2016 Iowa State University

Black-White Differences In Schooling Investment And Human Capital Production In Segregated Schools, Peter F. Orazem

Peter Orazem

The lower level of school quality available for blacks relative to whites in the segregated era is frequently cited as a primary cause for the currently observed gap in black-white average wages. The inferior education pro­ vided to black children is argued to have caused lower levels of human capital produc­ tion in black schools than white schools. The gap in black-white wages can be traced to this gap in human capital. Similarly, the convergence in black-and-white average wages during the 1960's and 1970's may be explained by the steady convergence in black-and-white school quality and atten­ dance ...

No Quick Fix: The Failure Of Criminal Law And The Promise Of Civil Law Remedies For Domestic Child Sex Trafficking, Charisa Smith 2016 University of Miami Law School

No Quick Fix: The Failure Of Criminal Law And The Promise Of Civil Law Remedies For Domestic Child Sex Trafficking, Charisa Smith

University of Miami Law Review

Pimps and johns who sexually exploit children garner instant public and scholarly outrage for their lust for a destructive “quick fix.” In actuality, many justifiably concerned scholars, policymakers, and members of the public continue to react over-simplistically and reflexively to the issue of child sex trafficking in the United States—also known as commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC)—in a manner intellectually akin to immediate gratification. Further, research reveals that the average john is an employed, married male of any given race or ethnicity, suggesting that over-simplification and knee-jerk thinking on CSEC are conspicuous. This Article raises provocative questions ...

La Carta De Intención (Letter Of Intent) En La Adquisición De Empresas: ¿Son Contratos Preparatorios?, Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado 2016 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos

La Carta De Intención (Letter Of Intent) En La Adquisición De Empresas: ¿Son Contratos Preparatorios?, Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado

Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado

En el presente artículo se aborda, desde un enfoque práctico y dogmático, la trascendencia de la denominada carta de intención en la práctica corporativa. Según el autor, independientemente del carácter no vinculante que suele revestir la carta de intención, su celebración genera, para las partes, una serie de compromisos jurídicamente vinculantes, entre ellos, la obligación de negociar al amparo del principio de la buena fe, por lo que aunque per se no vincula a las partes para suscribir el contrato definitivo de adquisición de la compañía target, el abandono injustificado, arbitrario y abusivo sí resulta resarcible.

Québec, Canada - Loyalty In Québec Private Law, Caroline Le Breton-Prévost 2016 Louisiana State University Law Center

Québec, Canada - Loyalty In Québec Private Law, Caroline Le Breton-Prévost

Journal of Civil Law Studies

This paper provides an overview of the duty of loyalty in Québec private law. It dispels uncertainty regarding the duty’s nature and then analyzes the duty of loyalty in the Civil Code of Québec. In doing so, this paper takes into account the mixed origins of the duty by establishing certain parallels with the common law. Ultimately, this paper suggests that the duty of loyalty arises when a legal actor has the power to act within the legal sphere of another


The Louisiana Civil Code In French:Translation And Retranslation, Olivier Moréteau 2016 Louisiana State University Law Center

The Louisiana Civil Code In French:Translation And Retranslation, Olivier Moréteau

Journal of Civil Law Studies

The first codes of Louisiana (1808 and 1825) were written in French and translated into English. When the Civil Code was revised in 1870, it was written in English only. Recent revisions, all in English, aim at promoting a civilian vocabulary that differs from that of the common law. This article discusses the translation of the Louisiana Civil Code from English to French in the context of the steep decline and limited revival of the French language usage in Louisiana. It explores the purpose and the implementation process of the translation project, detailing every step, and identifying linguistic and legal ...


International Trade V. Intellectual Property Lawyers:Globalization And The Brazilian Legal Profession, Vitor Martins Dias 2016 Louisiana State University Law Center

International Trade V. Intellectual Property Lawyers:Globalization And The Brazilian Legal Profession, Vitor Martins Dias

Journal of Civil Law Studies

In the context of globalization, this work analyzes a distinctive characteristic of the Brazilian legal profession. Namely, intellectual property (IP) lawyers, who played important roles in opening the Brazilian economy and who were key players in cross-border transactions, are now losing ground to their peers with respect to expertise in international trade. The thesis of this article is that the manner in which Brazilian lawyers are being educated is problematic. Generally, Brazilian legal education has become degraded and provincial. Yet, Brazilian international trade lawyers, unlike Brazilian IP lawyers, have overcome their deficient legal training by seeking legal education abroad. By ...


The Duty Of Good Faith Taken To A New Level:An Analysis Of Disloyal Behavior, Thiago Luís Sombra 2016 Louisiana State University Law Center

The Duty Of Good Faith Taken To A New Level:An Analysis Of Disloyal Behavior, Thiago Luís Sombra

Journal of Civil Law Studies

By focusing on improving the role of certain mechanisms for controlling private autonomy under a crisis of liberal values, contract law has reached an objective and straight dimension. The prohibition of disloyal or inconsistent behavior, also known as venire contra factum proprium in Roman Law, constitutes one of the concepts that is renowned for protecting the trust relationship. The prohibition of disloyal behavior lies in avoiding contradictory behaviors regarding previous manifestations of will that are based on good faith and that can cause damages. This article aims to challenge the main reason why disloyal behavior should be limited by good ...
