A Pantomime Of Privacy: Terrorism And Investigative Powers In German Constitutional Law, Russell A. Miller 2017 Washington & Lee University School of Law

A Pantomime Of Privacy: Terrorism And Investigative Powers In German Constitutional Law, Russell A. Miller

Russell A. Miller

Germany is widely regarded as a global model for the privacy protection its constitutional regime offers against intrusive intelligence-gathering and law enforcement surveillance. There is some basis for Germany’s privacy “exceptionalism,” especially as the text of the German Constitution (“Basic Law”) provides explicit textual protections that America’s Eighteenth Century Constitution lacks. The German Federal Constitutional Court has added to those doctrines with an expansive interpretation of the more general rights to dignity (Basic Law Article 1) and the free development of one’s personality (Basic Law Article 2). This jurisprudence includes constitutional liberty guarantees such as the absolute ...

Research Collection School Of Law

An in person am judgment lays down the rights and obligations between the parties to the action and binds only those parties. An in rem judgment pronounces upon the status of a particular subject matter and purports to bind the whole world. This report focuses on foreign in person am and in rem judgments in civil and commercial matters.

Introduction, Adeline Chong

Research Collection School Of Law

The drive to harmonise the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgment rules has gained momentum in recent years. First, there is the revival of the Judgments Project by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. The Judgments Project aims to develop a broad ranging convention on the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters.1 Secondly, the Hague Convention of 30 June 2005 on Choice of Court Agreements (“HCCCA”), which was concluded in 2005, came into force on 1 October 2015. The HCCCA was born out of work done at earlier negotiations on the Judgments Project. When ...

Secession And Federalism In The United States: Tools For Managing Regional Conflict In A Pluralist Society, Erin Ryan 2017 Florida State University College of Law

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

Erin Ryan

This Article explores the use of federalism and secession as tools for managing regional conflict within pluralist governance, drawing on underappreciated features of the American experience.  Epic struggles to balance autonomy with interdependence have taken on new urgency as dissatisfaction with globalization inspires political cataclysms unimaginable just a few years ago—including ‘Brexit’ from the European Union and American threats to leave NATO.  The same impetus toward devolution also surfaces in heated intra-national conflicts.  Recent calls for secession in Catalonia, Iraqi Kurdistan, Scotland, Québec, South Sudan, and even the United States reveal multiple political contexts in which questions have been ...

Background Note: Standard Essential Patents, Innovation And Competition: Challenges In India, Arpan Banerjee 2017 Maurer School of Law: Indiana University

Background Note: Standard Essential Patents, Innovation And Competition: Challenges In India, Arpan Banerjee

IP Theory

In September 2014, a few months after a landslide election victory, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the launch of “Make in India,” an ambitious program designed to turn India into a global manufacturing hub. One of the factors widely thought to be responsible for Modi’s victory was support from India’s “neo-middle class”—a young, newly- urbanized section of the electorate seeking employment and improved living standards but struggling amidst an economic downturn. In a speech inaugurating Make in India, Modi linked the program with the aspirations of this section of society. Modi stated the need to ...


Mass Displacement Of Destitute People: A Trigger For Non-Refoulement Protection?, Bernardo de Souza Dantas Fico, Leticia Machado Haertel 2017 InterAmerican Court of Human Rights

Mass Displacement Of Destitute People: A Trigger For Non-Refoulement Protection?, Bernardo De Souza Dantas Fico, Leticia Machado Haertel

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

This paper focuses on two problems around the mass displacement of people in extreme poverty: the characterization of such people as refugees and the application of the non-refoulement principle to mass displacements.

Extreme poverty is causal to grave human rights violations such as deprivation of water, of food, and of an adequate standard of living. These circumstances may reach a degree in which life in a country is unbearable — forcing people to move in order to enhance their likelihood of survival.

The classic understanding of the non-refoulement obligation, as enshrined in the 1951 Refugee Convention, forbids states from returning people ...


Who Wants The Global Law School?, Kevin E. Davis, Xinyi Zhang 2017 New York University School of Law

Who Wants The Global Law School?, Kevin E. Davis, Xinyi Zhang

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

Commentators regularly call for the globalization of U.S. legal education. An often unstated presumption is that if we build global law schools, students will come. In the imaginations of its promoters, the global law school will be overwhelmed by demand from students motivated by economically defined career goals. This perspective neglects the potentially confounding influences of imperfect information, on the parts of both employers and students, as well as social and cultural factors that influence students’ decision-making. This study examines factors that influence student decisions about whether to participate in one aspect of globally oriented legal education, study abroad ...

Us-Recht Als Ausländisches Recht, Kirk W. Junker 2017 Faculty of Law, University of Cologne

Us-Recht Als Ausländisches Recht, Kirk W. Junker

Kirk W Junker

Obwohl dieses Handbuch durchaus auch für diejenigen Leser nützlich ist, die nicht zwangsläufig vom ersten Kapitel an zu Lesen beginnen, sollen an dieser Stelle einige grundlegende Gedanken zum Umgang mit US-recht aus der Perspektive eines nicht-amerikanischen Anwalts ausgeführt werden. Für deutsche Anwälte ist das US-Recht ausländisches Recht. Diese Feststellung stellt einen wichtigen Ausgangspunkt dar. Ein aufmerksamer Anwalt wird sorgfältig darüber nachdenken und reflektieren, was es bedeutet, in einem ausländischen Rechtsgebiet zu praktizieren. Forschung und Praxis im ausländischen Recht haben inhärent auch einen rechtsvergleichenden Charakter, da man immer im Hinterkopf behalten muss, wie die ausländischen Rechtsgedanken sich im Verhältnis zu dem ...


Us-Umweltrecht Aus Dem Ausland Betrachtet, Kirk W. Junker 2017 Faculty of Law, University of Cologne

Us-Umweltrecht Aus Dem Ausland Betrachtet, Kirk W. Junker

Kirk W Junker

Es kommt relativ oft vor, dass deutsche Juristen überrascht reagieren, wenn ich erzähle, dass mein Forschungsgebiet das Umweltrecht ist und ich mich auch in der Praxis mit Umweltrecht beschäftige. Oftmals werde ich dann gefragt, ob Umweltrecht ein "amerikanisches Ding" sei. Jedoch gibt es an mindestens 34 deutschen Universitäten eine oder mehrere Professuren, Lehrstühle oder sogar Institute für Umweltrecht, und viele deutsche Anwaltskanzleien geben dezidiert an, im Umweltrecht tätig zu sein - mindestens eine Kanzlei in jeder der zwanzig größten Städte beschäftigt sich zumindest auch mit Umweltrecht.


Oliari And The European Court Of Human Rights: Where The Court Failed, Vito John Marzano 2017 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Oliari And The European Court Of Human Rights: Where The Court Failed, Vito John Marzano

Pace International Law Review

The European Court of Human Rights revisited the issue of legal recognition for same-sex partnerships on July 21, 2015 when it decided Oliari and Others v. Italy. This Note explores the implications of that decision and what it may mean for same-sex couples within Italy and throughout the Council of Europe. Through a careful analysis of the decision, this Note concludes that Oliari provides slight yet important movement on the issue of a Contracting State’s obligation to afford legal recognition for same-sex partnerships, but a practical implementation of the Court’s holding likely will yield little additional movement in ...
