Lost & Found (2017a, 2017b) is a tabletop-to-mobile game series designed to teach medieval religious legal systems, beginning with Moses Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah (1180), a cornerstone work of Jewish legal rabbinic literature.

Mccrosky V. Carson Tahoe Reg’L Med. Ctr., 133 Nev. Adv. Op. 115 (Dec. 28, 2017), Xheni Ristani

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court determined that vicarious liability is not abrogated by NRS 41A.045or by settling with one tortfeasor, unless the settlement so provides. Further, whether an ostensible agency exception exists is a question of fact that must be determined by the jury. Finally, after finding that federal law preempts NRS 42.021, the Court reverted to the per se rule in Nevada that collateral source payments may not be admitted into evidence.

The Jewish Family – Between Family Law And Contract Law, Yehezkel Margalit

Hezi Margalit

Traditional Jewish family law has persevered for hundreds of years and rules covering marriage, the raising of children, and divorce are well established; yet pressures from modern society are causing long held views to be re-examined. The Jewish Family: Between Family Law and Contract Law examines the tenets of Jewish family law in the light of new attitudes concerning the role of women, assisted reproduction technologies, and prenuptial agreements. It explores, through interdisciplinary research combining the legal aspects of family law and contract law, how the Jewish family can cope with both old and modern obstacles and challenges. Focusing on ...


Contrato De Depósito, Hugo Ernesto Paz Acuña 2017 Selected Works

Contrato De Depósito, Hugo Ernesto Paz Acuña

Hugo Paz Acuña


En nuestro país, un estudio preliminar del Depósito como contrato civil, en lo que va de este siglo XXI, podría creerse nos llevará a revisar su regulación en la legislación peruana vigente desde 1984, sin encontrar en este acto jurídico patrimonial, ninguna utilidad que merezca la consideración del empresario de nuestros días. Sin embargo, la entrega, custodia y restitución de bienes muebles, presentan importantes aspectos, algunos de los cuales expondremos en estos breves comentarios, redescubriendo un contrato que, en nuestra opinión, hace posible el aprovechamiento y la conservación del valor económico de los referidos bienes.

Inseparable: Perspective Of Senator Daniel Webster, Ernest M. Oleksy 2017 Cleveland State University

Inseparable: Perspective Of Senator Daniel Webster, Ernest M. Oleksy

The Downtown Review

Considering the hypersensitivity that their nation has towards race relations, it is often ineffable to contemporary Americans as to how anyone could have argued against abolition in the 19th century. However, by taking the perspective of Senator Daniel Webster speaking to an audience of disunionist-abolitionists, proslaveryites, and various shades of moderates, numerous points of contention will be brought to light as to why chattel slavery persisted so long in the U.S. Focal points of dialogue will include the Narrative of Frederick Douglass, the "positive good" claims of Senator John C. Calhoun, the disunionism of William Lloyd Garrison, and the ...

The Right Balance: Qualified Immunity And Section 1983, Jana Minich 2017 Cedarville University

The Right Balance: Qualified Immunity And Section 1983, Jana Minich

Channels: Where Disciplines Meet

This paper explores qualified immunity jurisprudence in the context of Section 1983 lawsuits against police officers. Following an overview of the history behind this jurisprudence, this research looks into the current problems with the application of qualified immunity: lack of guidance for lower courts, a need for constitutional rights articulation, and a divergence from notice-based standard for particularity. This study suggests guiding the trajectory of case law toward solutions with foundations already present in precedent rather than overhauling the system of qualified immunity.
