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 ...

La Accesión O Suma De Posesiones Vía Mortis Causa, Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado 2016 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos

La Accesión O Suma De Posesiones Vía Mortis Causa, Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado

Marco Andrei Torres Maldonado

Según el autor no solo los bienes, derechos y obligaciones son materia de sucesión, sino también las situaciones de hecho como la posesión, pudiendo esta ser adquirida vía mortis causa. En tal sentido, los herederos deberán ejercer actos de señorío sobre el bien, y solo en ese momento podrán adicionar el plazo posesorio de su causante en virtud del artículo 898 del Código Civil. Para el autor esta última exigencia resulta importante a efectos de la prescripción adquisitiva, puesto que para adquirir la propiedad por esta vía se requiere que la posesión sea pública.


Distribution To Undo Excess: The Ninth Circuit Looks To An Equitable Approach To Apportion The Costs Of Environmental Cleanup In Ameripride Services Inc. V. Texas Eastern Overseas Inc., Sean A. Feener 2016 Boston College Law School

Distribution To Undo Excess: The Ninth Circuit Looks To An Equitable Approach To Apportion The Costs Of Environmental Cleanup In Ameripride Services Inc. V. Texas Eastern Overseas Inc., Sean A. Feener

Boston College Law Review

On April 2, 2015, in AmeriPride Services Inc. v. Texas Eastern Overseas Inc., the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit joined the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in holding that district courts are not bound to a single method of distributing response costs in contribution actions under § 9613(f) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”). The First and Ninth Circuits have held that courts may allocate such costs according to the most equitable method as long as it is consistent with the language and the purposes of CERCLA. The ...

State V. Second Jud. Dist. Ct. (Ayden A.), 132 Nev. Adv. Op. 33 (April 28, 2016), Audra Powell

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

NRS 432B.6075 governs emergency admission of children with emotional disturbances to facilities for their protection, and requires a petition for continuance of admission after an emergency admission within five days of the involuntary placement.[1] Based on N.R.C.P. 6(a), which governs the computing of time for judicial purposes, the Court held that the five day limitation on filing a petition was based on judicial, not calendar, days. The Court granted the State’s petition for a writ of mandamus, directing the district court to vacate its order denying the State’s NRS 432B petition.

The Survival Of Civil Law In North America: The Case Of Louisiana, Thomas E. Carbonneau 2016 Penn State Law

The Survival Of Civil Law In North America: The Case Of Louisiana, Thomas E. Carbonneau

Thomas Carbonneau

There are legitimate historical reasons for speaking seriously about a civil law heritage in Louisiana. French and Spanish civilian influences permeated the Louisiana Civil Code when it was first enacted in 1808. The current status of the civil law in Louisiana, however, is problematic; the American common law methodology has made significant inroads into the operation of the current legal system. Separated from its parenting source by geography, time, and culture, Louisiana civil law has become an ill-defined civilian entity that, in reality, is more of a common law process with civil law trappings. The civil law nonetheless has a ...


Analytical And Comparative Variations On Selected Provisions Of Book One Of The Louisiana Civil Code With Special Consideration Of The Role Of Fault In The Determination Of Marital Disputes, Thomas E. Carbonneau 2016 Penn State Law

Analytical And Comparative Variations On Selected Provisions Of Book One Of The Louisiana Civil Code With Special Consideration Of The Role Of Fault In The Determination Of Marital Disputes, Thomas E. Carbonneau

Thomas Carbonneau

This article is intended to be a type of "structuralist" commentary upon selected provisions in Book I of the Louisiana Civil Code. Its sole purpose is to illustrate, both for pedagogical and doctrinal reasons, some of the analytical difficulties to which these code provisions might give rise when they are read in a close textual fashion. It should be emphasized that this study is a textual commentary and not a historical assessment of the sources or origins of the code texts – the latter analysis is outside the purview of the present endeavor.

Accordingly, this article consists of a critical textual ...
