Scarce Medical Resources – Parenthood At Every Age, In Every Case And Subsidized By The State?, yehezkel Margalit 2015 SelectedWorks

Scarce Medical Resources – Parenthood At Every Age, In Every Case And Subsidized By The State?, Yehezkel Margalit

Hezi Margalit

The dilemma of scarce medical resources is deeply rooted in the ancient mankind history, but it has been accelerated in the modern era with the appearance of the bio-medical innovations. This acute dilemma is relevant to all the western developed states, include Israel. Nevertheless, in one field there is the notion that Israel has unlimited medical resources – the fulfillment of its citizen's procreation and parenthood rights. Thus, for sociological, demographical, religious and security reasons the State of Israel invests a vast amount of money to develop and use the various fertility treatments. Israel, today, has the highest per capita ...


California Egg Toss - The High Costs Of Avoiding Unenforceable Surrogacy Contracts, Jennifer Jackson 2014 University of San Diego

California Egg Toss - The High Costs Of Avoiding Unenforceable Surrogacy Contracts, Jennifer Jackson

Jennifer Jackson

In an emotionally charged decision regarding surrogacy contracts, it is important to recognize the ramifications, costs, and policy. There are advantages to both “gestational carrier surrogacy” contracts and “traditional surrogacy” contracts. However, this paper focuses on the differences between these contracts using case law. Specifically, this paper will focus on the implications of California case law regarding surrogacy contracts. Cases such as Johnson v. Calvert and In Re Marriage of Moschetta provide a clear distinction between these contracts. This distinction will show that while gestational carrier surrogacy contracts are more expensive, public policy and court opinions will provide certainty and ...

Reglas Predeterminadas Mayoritarias: Doctrina Jurídica Civilista Y Análisis Económico Del Derecho, Daniel A. Monroy 2014 SelectedWorks

Reglas Predeterminadas Mayoritarias: Doctrina Jurídica Civilista Y Análisis Económico Del Derecho, Daniel A. Monroy

Daniel A Monroy C

Si bien parece excepcional que la doctrina jurídica tradicional efectúe un análisis explícito de orden normativo respecto de las reglas predeterminadas, particularmente en lo que respecta al diseño adecuado de las mismas, esta idea es una simple apariencia, pues lo cierto es que –tal como se demostrará en el trabajo– de un análisis más detenido de la doctrina, se infieren algunas ideas que, en conjunto, permiten delinear un criterio normativo al que responden las reglas predeterminadas en el Derecho de contratos. Dicho criterio resulta coherente con las ideas defendidas de tiempo atrás por el mainstream del Análisis Económico del Derecho ...

Hobby Lobby And The Zero-Sum Game, 2014 Washington University School of Law

Hobby Lobby And The Zero-Sum Game

Washington University Law Review Commentaries

In a zero-sum game, one person’s gain is another person’s loss. Some claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act present such zero-sum circumstances in that easing the claimant’s religious burden increases someone else’s burden. This Commentary explores the effect of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores on such zero-sum claims using a paradigmatic example: RFRA claims challenging the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. This inquiry reveals that Hobby Lobby did not open the door for cases involving true zero-sum games, including those under the Eagle Act and some under the anti-discrimination laws. In such cases, granting ...


Technology And Family Law Hearings, Ron S. Foster, Lianne M. Cihlar 2014 Western University

Technology And Family Law Hearings, Ron S. Foster, Lianne M. Cihlar

Western Journal of Legal Studies

Technological innovations are changing the practice of law. Lawyers need to be aware of both the advantages of new technologies and the novel concerns that arise in the digital age. This article discusses eight issues that lawyers should be aware of with respect to technological advances within the legal field: (1) cloud technology, (2) the privacy implications that arise from new technology, (3) data storage technology, (4) electronic trials and hearings, (5) demonstrative evidence, (6) digital exhibit books, (7) internet searches and witnesses, and (8) video conference testimony.

Addressing The Tension Between The Dual Identities Of The American Prostitute: Criminal And Victim; How Problem-Solving Courts Can Help, Brynn N.H. Jacobson

Seattle University Law Review

This Comment focuses on the sexual exploitation of both adult women and girls in the life of prostitution. The primary purpose is to explore the difficulties faced by American citizens who are exploited in prostitution (as opposed to foreign nationals who are subject to exploitation). This Comment focuses only on state and local prostitution laws, as opposed to global or federal laws on prostitution. It takes the position that prostitution is not a chosen profession for the vast majority and that prostitution is sexual exploitation. This Comment discusses the experiment of legalization and decriminalization in the Netherlands and Sweden as ...

Human Rights Violations By Canadian Companies Abroad: Choc V Hudbay Minerals Inc, Susana C. Mijares Peña 2014 Western University

Human Rights Violations By Canadian Companies Abroad: Choc V Hudbay Minerals Inc, Susana C. Mijares Peña

Western Journal of Legal Studies

Canadian mining corporations operating abroad represent a challenge to the international legal system and Canadian legal system in the field of human rights. Currently, there are no legal mechanisms available to ensure that these corporations abide by international standards and voluntary codes. For this reason, some argue that Canadian courts should be more active in holding Canadian companies accountable for the human rights violations of their affiliates operating abroad. The recent Ontario Superior Court of Justice decision of Choc v Hudbay Minerals suggests that for the first time, a Canadian court is ready to play a regulatory role in preventing ...


Bridging The Gap Between Intent And Status: A New Framework For Modern Parentage, yehezkel Margalit 2014 SelectedWorks

Bridging The Gap Between Intent And Status: A New Framework For Modern Parentage, Yehezkel Margalit

Hezi Margalit

The last few decades have witnessed dramatic changes in the conceptualization and methodologies of determining legal parentage in the U.S. and other countries in the western world. Through various sociological shifts, growing social openness and bio-medical innovations, the traditional definitions of family and parenthood have been dramatically transformed. This transformation has led to an acute and urgent need for legal and social frameworks to regulate the process of determining legal parentage. Moreover, instead of progressing in a piecemeal, ad-hoc manner, the framework for determining legal parentage should be comprehensive. Only a comprehensive solution will address the differing needs of ...


Representation In Context: Party Power And Lawyer Expertise, Colleen F. Shanahan, Anna E. Carpenter, Alyx Mark 2014 Georgetown University Law Center

Representation In Context: Party Power And Lawyer Expertise, Colleen F. Shanahan, Anna E. Carpenter, Alyx Mark

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

The questions when, why, and how legal representation makes a difference for parties in civil litigation remain largely unanswered, although recent scholarship raises compelling new questions and suggests new explanations and theoretical approaches. Understanding how legal representation operates, we argue, requires an appreciation for the context in which the representation actually takes place. This article examines two previously unexplored elements of the context of legal representation through empirical and theoretical analysis: the balance of power between the parties to a dispute and the professional, specifically strategic, expertise that a legal representative contributes. The results of a study of 1,700 ...


The Road Most Travel: Is The Executive’S Growing Preeminence Making America More Like The Authoritarian Regimes It Fights So Hard Against?, Ryan T. Williams 2014 SelectedWorks

The Road Most Travel: Is The Executive’S Growing Preeminence Making America More Like The Authoritarian Regimes It Fights So Hard Against?, Ryan T. Williams

Ryan T. Williams

Since September 11, 2001, the Executive branch of the Unites States government continues to accumulate power beyond which is granted to it under the U.S. Constitution. This Article examines how the Executive wields this additional power through a secret surveillance program, the indefinite detention of terror suspects, and the implementation of a kill list, where Americans and non-Americans alike are targeted and killed without any judicial determination of guilt or innocence. Moreover, Congress and the Judiciary have condoned the Executive’s unconstitutional power accumulation by not only remaining idle and refusing to challenge this taking, but by preventing other ...

¿La Impugnación O La Invalidez De Los Negocios Jurídicos Unilaterales Colegiales Asociativos?, Rómulo Morales 2014 SelectedWorks

¿La Impugnación O La Invalidez De Los Negocios Jurídicos Unilaterales Colegiales Asociativos?, Rómulo Morales

Rómulo Martín Morales Hervias

Las casaciones N° 2978-2011-Lima y N° 3867-2010-Lima no aplicaron adecuadamente las normas jurídicas a los casos propuestos, porque sus argumentos solo se sustentaron en el principio de especialidad del artículo 92 del Código Civil sin tener en cuenta que tal artículo no puede interpretarse aisladamente de la normativa de la invalidez del negocio jurídico. Una interpretación sistemática hubiese señalado que los actos colegiales asociativos con firmas falsas son un típico caso de ausencia de manifestación de voluntad (por ser un negocio jurídico unilateral) y aquí sí cabe aplicar la causal de nulidad expresamente regulada en el numeral 1 del artículo ...
