Secession And Federalism In The United States: Tools For Managing Regional Conflict In A Pluralist Society, Erin Ryan 2016 Florida State University

Secession And Federalism In The United States: Tools For Managing Regional Conflict In A Pluralist Society, Erin Ryan

Erin Ryan

This volume, incorporating the work of scholars from various parts of the globe, taps the wisdom of the Westphalian (and post-Westphalian) world on the use of federalism and secession as tools for managing regional conflict.  The conversation has scarcely been more important than it is right now, especially in light of recent events in Catalonia, Scotland, Québec, and the Sudan—all unique political contexts raising similar questions about how best to balance competing claims for autonomy, interdependence, political voice, and exit.  Exploring how various nations have encountered like conflicts, some more and some less successfully, promises to broaden the perspectives ...

Keeping Secrets: The Case For A North American Trade Secret Agreement, Jonathan K. Heath 2016 Pepperdine University

Keeping Secrets: The Case For A North American Trade Secret Agreement, Jonathan K. Heath

The Journal of Business, Entrepreneurship & the Law

In this paper, I attempt to give an overview of the statutory trade secret protections available in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and suggest a solution to the problem of inadequate and confusing trade secret legislation: an international agreement between the NAFTA signatories criminalizing the theft of trade secrets.

Why The Clarification Petition Filed By The Union Of India In The Transgender Case Is Incorrect In Law And In Bad Faith On The Question Of Reservation, Surabhi Shukla 2016 College of William & Mary Law School

Why The Clarification Petition Filed By The Union Of India In The Transgender Case Is Incorrect In Law And In Bad Faith On The Question Of Reservation, Surabhi Shukla

William & Mary Journal of Women and the Law

In this Article, I make an argument that the state, including the Government of India, is empowered by the Constitution of India to decide which classes qualify as “backward classes” for affirmative action measures under the Constitution. The Supreme Court of India has directed the government to include the transgender population as a backward class and to extend to them affirmative action measures such as reservation in public appointments and university admissions. In response, the Union of India has filed a clarification petition stating that it is incompetent to suo motu include the transgender population as a backward class and ...


Women Who Kill Women, Rashmi Goel 2016 College of William & Mary Law School

Women Who Kill Women, Rashmi Goel

William & Mary Journal of Women and the Law

This Article examines more closely the participation of mothers-in-law in India’s dowry murders to gain a better understanding of these dynamics and to expose the limits of existing reforms. I first turn to the participation of women in dowry death cases and the ways in which their participation challenges our conventional understanding of patriarchy and societal manifestation. In Part II, I provide an overview of dowry deaths in India. In Part III, I survey the different criminal provisions related to dowry deaths and demonstrate how these laws actually operate within a set of cultural practices that support female subjugation ...


Immigration And Disability In The United States And Canada, Mark C. Weber 2016 DePaul University College of Law

Immigration And Disability In The United States And Canada, Mark C. Weber

Mark C. Weber

Disability arises from the dynamic between people’s physical and mental conditions and
the physical and attitudinal barriers in the environment. Applying this idea about
disability to United States and Canadian immigration law draws attention to barriers to
entry and eventual citizenship for individuals who have disabilities. Historically, North
American law excluded many classes of immigrants, including those with intellectual
disabilities, mental illness, physical defects, and conditions likely to cause dependency.
Though exclusions for individuals likely to draw excessive public resources and those
with communicable diseases still exist in Canada and the United States, in recent years
the United States ...
