Resolving Intrastate Conflicts Of Laws: The Example Of The Federal Arbitration Act, Andrew D. Bradt 2016 University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall)

Resolving Intrastate Conflicts Of Laws: The Example Of The Federal Arbitration Act, Andrew D. Bradt

Andrew D. Bradt

Choice-of-law analysis is typically thought of as confined to the multistate setting. This is a mistake. To the contrary, conflicts often appear between statutes of a single state. Unfortunately, courts do not see these cases as “choice-of-law” cases. They see them only as problems of statutory interpretation and ignore conflicts of laws instead of resolving them, either by construing the conflicting statutes independently or applying a canon of construction. Here, I examine the benefits of importing choice-of-law tools—particularly the tools of governmental-interest analysis—into the resolution of intrastate conflicts of laws. When two laws promulgated by the same sovereign ...

Surrogacy And Citizenship: A Conjunctive Solution To A Global Problem, Caitlin Pyrce 2016 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Surrogacy And Citizenship: A Conjunctive Solution To A Global Problem, Caitlin Pyrce

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

People around the world are turning to surrogacy when they are unable to conceive by traditional means. When surrogacy turns traditional notions of parentage upside down, however, countries struggle to find efficient regulations that protect their own citizens, while still recognizing the increasingly global nature of modern society. Children born through surrogacy arrangements between Thai surrogate mothers and Australian intended parents have been confronted with the consequences of inadequate regulation. This note argues that in addition to revising surrogacy legislation to reflect the increasingly transient nature of society, countries must make mirror citizenship reform so children born through surrogacy are ...


Data Institutionalism: A Reply To Andrew Woods, Zachary D. Clopton 2016 Cornell Law School

Data Institutionalism: A Reply To Andrew Woods, Zachary D. Clopton

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

In "Against Data Exceptionalism," Andrew K. Woods explores “one of the greatest societal and technological shifts in recent years,” which manifests in the “same old” questions about government power. The global cloud is an important feature of modern technological life that has significant consequences for individual privacy, law enforcement, and governance. Yet, as Woods suggests, the legal challenges presented by the cloud have analogies in age-old puzzles of public and private international law.

Identifying these connections is a conceptual advance, and this contribution should not be understated. But, to my mind, the most telling statement in Woods’s excellent article ...

European Financial Regulations – Post Crisis Ciarb Presentation.Pdf, Mohamed Raffa 2016 University of East London

European Financial Regulations – Post Crisis Ciarb Presentation.Pdf, Mohamed Raffa

Mohamed Raffa Dr.

The presentation considers the case for Financial Regulations in financial markets, post crisis by reference to a selection of recent interpretations and cases involving European Union regulations.
The presentation also makes reference to a limited number of cases in other jurisdictions in which those regulations are a measure of the sorts of complicated financial disputes that may arise again in the future.
This is a review of the current knowledge on various tradeoffs regarding public policies towards systemic financial and corporate sector restructuring.
It discusses empirical findings that consistency in the framework adopted for bank and corporate restructuring is the ...

Absolute Conflicts Of Law, Anthony J. Colangelo 2016 Southern Methodist University

Absolute Conflicts Of Law, Anthony J. Colangelo

Indiana Law Journal

This Article coins the term “absolute conflicts of law” to describe situations of overlapping laws from different states that contain simultaneous contradictory commands. It argues that absolute conflicts are a unique legal phenomenon in need of a unique doctrine. The Article extensively explores what absolute conflicts are; how they qualitatively differ from other doctrines like true conflicts of law, act of state, and comity; and classifies absolute conflicts’ myriad doctrinal manifestations through a taxonomy that categorizes absolute conflicts as procedural, substantive, mixed, horizontal, and vertical.

The Article then proposes solutions to absolute conflicts that center on the rule of law ...
