Re-Envisioning Investors’ Anti-Director Rights Index: Theory, Criticism, And Implications, Sang Yop Kang 2015 SelectedWorks

Re-Envisioning Investors’ Anti-Director Rights Index: Theory, Criticism, And Implications, Sang Yop Kang

Sang Yop Kang

‘Law and Finance’ theory – which offers analytical frameworks to measure the protection of public investors and the quality of corporate governance – has dominated the comparative corporate governance scholarship in the last decade. So far, many proponents and critics have had debates on the relevance of the theory and the implications of the theory’s empirical studies. Several important points in relation to shareholder protection, however, have been highly neglected in these debates. In particular, the significance of one-share-one-vote (OSOV) rule has been inappropriately underestimated. In response, this Article explores (1) why OSOV is an utmost critical component in corporate governance ...

Shari’Ah-Based Sukuk Have So Far Failed To Bond With Korea's Capital Markets, But Not Due To Lack Of Interest: An Examination Of The Korean Government's Unsuccessful Attempts To Introduce Sukuk-Friendly Legislation, Mee-Hyon Lee

Shari’ah-based Sukuk have so far failed to bond with Korea’s capital markets, but not due to lack of interest: An examination of the Korean government’s unsuccessful attempts to introduce Sukuk-friendly legislation.

Mee- Hyon Lee

While Korean companies for a long time have been keenly interested in attaining fuller and more direct participation in the Islamic financial markets to take advantage of the huge growth potential there and to keep in step with significant global trends, progress toward that goal remains elusive because the relatively unconventional characteristics of Sukuk (the Shari’ah-compliant alternative to standard debt ...


Amending Constitutional Amendment Rules, Richard Albert 2015 Boston College Law School

Amending Constitutional Amendment Rules, Richard Albert

Richard Albert

No part of a constitution is more important than the rules that govern its amendment and its entrenchment against it. Given the important functions served by formal constitutional amendment rules, we might expect constitutional designers to entrench them against ordinary amendment, for instance by requiring a higher-than-usual quantum of agreement for their amendment or by making them altogether unamendable. Yet relatively few constitutional democracies set a higher threshold for formally amending formal amendment rules. In this Article, I demonstrate that existing written and unwritten limits to formally amending formal amendment rules are unsatisfactory, and I offer modest textual entrenchment strategies ...

Jarvis J. Lagman Esq.

ABSTRACT

Strengthening the Foundation for World Peace:

A Case for Democratizing the United Nations

By Jarvis J. Lagman, Esq.

The objective of this treatise is to show how the democratization of the United Nations would strengthen the foundation for world peace by increasing its effectiveness as a transnational governmental institution, promoting the harmonization of how different political systems value political legitimacy and facilitating the diffusion of democratic culture in a manner that minimizes conflict with existing political hegemonies. The achievement of a sustainable world peace requires the global harmonization of political systems to recognize each individual’s right to self-determination ...


Indefinite Detention And Antiterrorism Laws: Balancing Security And Human Rights, JoAnne M. Sweeny 2014 Pace University

Indefinite Detention And Antiterrorism Laws: Balancing Security And Human Rights, Joanne M. Sweeny

Pace Law Review

This article does more than describe British and American anti-terrorism laws; it shows how those laws go through conflicted government branches and the bargains struck to create the anti-terrorism laws that exist today. Instead of taking these laws as given, this Article explains why they exist. More specifically, this article focuses on the path anti-terrorism legislation followed in the United States and the United Kingdom, with particular focus on each country’s ability (or lack thereof) to indefinitely detain suspected non-citizen terrorists. Both countries’ executives sought to have that power and both were limited by the legislatures and courts but ...
