The Corporation As Sovereign, Allison D. Garrett 2017 University of Maine School of Law

The Corporation As Sovereign, Allison D. Garrett

Maine Law Review

In the past two hundred years, sovereignty devolved from the monarch to the people in many countries; in our lifetimes, it has devolved in several significant ways from the people to the corporation. We are witnesses to the erosion of traditional Westphalian concepts of sovereignty, where the chess game of international politics is played out by nation-states, each governing a certain geographic area and group of people. Eulogies for the nation-state often cite globalization as the cause of death. The causa mortis is characterized by the increase in the power and normative influence of supranational organizations, such as the United ...

Introduction To U.S. Export Controls For The Commercial Space Industry, U.S. Department Of Commerce’S Office Of Space Commerce, Federal Aviation Administration’S Office Of Commercial Space Transportation

Documents on Outer Space Law

This guidebook provides basic information to help commercial space organizations, especially emerging entrepreneurial firms, considering business in the international market. It is intended to serve as a starting point in the preparation for the export control process. This is an update to the 2008 edition and reflects changes due to the Export Control Reform initiative. Because most space technologies are subject to export controls, it is your responsibility to be aware of the steps necessary to ensure that your operations are lawful. While this guidebook gives an overview of the general responsibilities and procedures, it cannot replace a full understanding ...


Corporate Migrations And Tax Transparency And Disclosure, Diane M. Ring 2017 Boston College Law School

Corporate Migrations And Tax Transparency And Disclosure, Diane M. Ring

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Migration, broadly defined, characterizes the movement of peoples and businesses across borders. The latter part of the 20th century saw notable business expansion across borders spurred by currency, capital, and investment restrictions and by the increased ability to manage global activities through technology and communications. Twenty plus years into this business globalization, we have witnessed the dramatic rise of transparency and disclosure rules and regimes. These regimes, which have dominated much of global international tax reform, include: (1) country-by-country reporting of tax information, (2) automatic exchange of tax rulings among jurisdictions, and (3) disclosure of beneficial ownership of entities. In ...


The Uniform Commercial Acts, J.P. McKeehan 2017 Penn State Dickinson Law

The Uniform Commercial Acts, J.P. Mckeehan

Dickinson Law Review

The Commissioners on Uniform State Laws have had twenty- five annual conferences. The principal fruit of their labors is represented by the Negotiable Instruments Act, enacted in forty-seven jurisdictions; the Warehouse Receipts Act, enacted in thirty-one jurisdictions; the Sales Act, enacted in fourteen jurisdictions, the Bills of Lading Act enacted in thirteen jurisdictions, and the Stock Transfer Act, enacted in nine jurisdictions. They have also drafted acts relating to divorce, family desertion, probate of wills, marriage evasion, workmen’s compensation and partnership but these have not yet been enacted in more than a few states. All of the commercial acts ...


Do We Need A Global Commercial Code?, Michael Joachim Bonell 2017 Penn State Dickinson Law

Do We Need A Global Commercial Code?, Michael Joachim Bonell

Dickinson Law Review

The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) first launched the idea of preparing a code of inter- national trade law. In 1970, the Secretariat of UNIDROIT submitted a note to the newly established United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) in justification of such an initiative and indicated some of the salient features of the project. What was proposed was a veritable code in the continental sense. The proposed code included two parts: part one dealing with the law of obligations generally, and part two relating to specific kinds of commercial transactions. However, the “Progressive codification ...

Smart Contracts: Terminology, Technical Limitations And Real World Complexity, Eliza MIK 2017 Singapore Management University

Smart Contracts: Terminology, Technical Limitations And Real World Complexity, Eliza Mik

Research Collection School Of Law

If one is to believe the popular press and many “technical writings,” blockchains create not only a perfect transactional environment but also obviate the need for banks, lawyers and courts. The latter will soon be replaced by smart contracts: unbiased and infallible computer programs that form, perform and enforce agreements. Predictions of future revolutions must, however, be distinguished from the harsh reality of the commercial marketplace and the technical limitations of blockchains. The fact that a technological solution is innovative and elegant need not imply that it is commercially useful or legally viable. Apart from attempting a terminological “clean-up” surrounding ...


Lord Denning’S Influence On Contract Formation In Singapore: An Overdue Demise?, Chia Ming LEE, Wei Yao, Kenny CHNG 2017 Singapore Management University

Lord Denning’S Influence On Contract Formation In Singapore: An Overdue Demise?, Chia Ming Lee, Wei Yao, Kenny Chng

Research Collection School Of Law

In a series of inconsistent decisions by the Singapore courts on contractformation in continuing negotiations cases, Lord Denning’s broad approach—which does away with the traditional offer and acceptance analysis—appearsto have been simultaneously adopted and rejected. This article suggests thatthe continued uncertainty in Singapore regarding the scope of application ofthe traditional approach and Lord Denning’s approach arises from aconflation of both as being substantially similar. This article further arguesthat both approaches are conceptually and practically distinct. A better wayforward for Singapore law in the area of contract formation in continuingnegotiations cases, having regard to developments in English ...

Sharing Economy Inequality: How The Adoption Of Class Action Waivers In The Sharing Economy Presents A Threat To Racial Discrimination Claims, Caitlin Toto 2017 Boston College Law School

Sharing Economy Inequality: How The Adoption Of Class Action Waivers In The Sharing Economy Presents A Threat To Racial Discrimination Claims, Caitlin Toto

Boston College Law Review

In recent years, the sharing economy has pervaded the life of the consumer, challenging the regulatory and business status quo. Despite the pluralistic messages of many sharing economy companies, racial discrimination is a growing problem on peer-to-peer networks such as Uber and Airbnb. Victims of discrimination, however, have encountered an even greater opponent: class action waivers in arbitration agreements, which are omnipresent in sharing economy company contracts. Due to the inherent tie between class action and civil rights, racial discrimination claims in the sharing economy are held hostage by individual arbitration agreements. This Note argues that without action by Congress ...


The Threads Of Justice: Economic Liberalization And The Secondhand Clothing Trade Between The U.S. And Haiti, Kelsey Gasseling 2017 Boston College Law School

The Threads Of Justice: Economic Liberalization And The Secondhand Clothing Trade Between The U.S. And Haiti, Kelsey Gasseling

Boston College Law Review

After World War II, as economic liberalization spread across the globe through international negotiations like the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, so too did used clothing. Though many proponents of the trade laud its capacity to create employment opportunities in less developed countries, critics suggest it has a more insidious deleterious effect on local industry. To this day, however, little research has been done regarding the symbiotic relationship between trade liberalization and the secondhand clothing industry. Some economic scholars suggest that current approaches to liberal trade—unilateral trade preferences particularly—stymy, instead of stimulate sustainable and just economic growth ...
