Attempting—And Failing—To Balance Fairness And Efficiency In The Arbitral System: How Arbitration Institutions Are Defeating The Purpose Of Arbitration, Hannah N Myslik 2021 Texas A&M University School of Law (Student)

Attempting—And Failing—To Balance Fairness And Efficiency In The Arbitral System: How Arbitration Institutions Are Defeating The Purpose Of Arbitration, Hannah N Myslik

Texas A&M Law Review

The Supreme Court has actively expanded the Federal Arbitration Act into realms not originally contemplated by Congress. This harms consumers who are parties to pre-dispute, binding arbitration agreements. If consumers sign a contract containing an arbitration agreement, they may be required to arbitrate everything within the agreement’s scope, including their statutory rights. Simultaneously, the Court has restricted class action arbitration—a device on which consumers have relied when they are forced to arbitrate.

The Court’s expansion of arbitration and restriction of class action arbitration has led many to distrust and advocate for changing the arbitral system. Arbitration institutions ...

The Rise Of "Fringetech": Regulatory Risks In Earned-Wage Access, Nakita Q. Cuttino 2021 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

The Rise Of "Fringetech": Regulatory Risks In Earned-Wage Access, Nakita Q. Cuttino

Northwestern University Law Review

By many accounts, the financial technology, or FinTech, sector appears to have developed an innovative solution to assist low-income workers with income shortfalls between standard paydays by displacing fringe financial service providers, namely payday lenders. Earned wage access programs facilitate early transfers of earned-but-unpaid wages to low- income workers through mobile platforms, algorithmic technology, and GPS tracking. To many, earned wage access programs represent a win-win for employees and employers. These programs are believed to be cheaper and safer alternatives to payday loans. Preliminary research also suggests these programs improve labor-retention rates for employers and help reduce financial distress for ...

أ.د. رمضان علي السيد الشرنباصي، الضوابط الشرعية لحماية المستهلك

Journal Sharia and Law

لم توجد حماية تشريعية للمستهلك في القوانين الوضعية إلا بعد عام سنة 1945م، عقب الحرب العالمية الثانية حيث الأزمة الاقتصادية الطاحنة التي اجتاحت العالم في تلك الآونة وعجز الانتاج عن الوفاء بمطالب الناس وارتفعت الأسعار وضاق الناس ظرعاً بهذا الأمر الذي تنبه له المشرع الوضعي ووضع القوانين حماية للمستهلك ابتداء من هذا العام وليس الأمر كذلك في الفقه الإسلامي، فإن حماية المستهلك في التشريعات الإسلامية تمت في عصر تكوين الرسالة في عهده -صلي الله عليه وسلم- والمعروف أن الشريعة الإسلامية نظمت الحياة الإنسانية على الإطلاق في المعاش والمعاد ( أي في الدنيا والآخرة، ومن يك في مرية من هذا فليراجع نفسه ...

Corruption In Capsules: How It Is Legal For Companies To Put Harmful Ingredients In Vitamins And Dietary Supplements, Emily Leggiero

English Department: Research for Change - Wicked Problems in Our World

The vitamin and supplement industry has increased exponentially in profits as well as potential products on the market since the turn of the century. However, these products are not regulated, nor do they undergo any premarket clinical research or testing. Public health is compromised by vitamins and supplements that are available for American consumption that is disproportionately unregulated to their chemically similar counterparts. This wicked problem is facilitated through the combination of historical legislative definitions that has since been distorted for corrupt administrative gain through the allotment of corporate expenditures. Company disbursements are made to the same policymakers that create ...

Creating Balance: Problems Within Dshea And Suggestions For Reform, Jennifer Akre Hill

Journal of Food Law & Policy

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) was signed into law on October 25, 1994. At the signing, President Clinton endorsed the "intense efforts" of manufacturers and legislators to change the "treatment of dietary supplements under regulation and law." Further, the bill was signed with the hope that it would benefit consumers by permitting more access to dietary supplements and more choices for consumer directed healthcare. In support, politicians on both sides of the aisle claimed the DSHEA as a victory for consumer freedom, populist protection, and preventative medicine.


Open World Regulation: The Urgent Need For Federal Legislation On Video Game Loot Boxes, Alex Reyes 2021 University of Washington School of Law

Open World Regulation: The Urgent Need For Federal Legislation On Video Game Loot Boxes, Alex Reyes

Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts

Loot boxes are items in video games that contain randomized prizes that players can purchase with real-world money. In recent years, loot boxes have come under scrutiny because the relationship between behavior and the underlying mechanics of loot boxes are similar to that of addictive behaviors associated with real-world gambling. Many papers suggest solutions focused on industry changes without direct regulation. However, these papers neglect the enormous profit incentive to maintain a business practice which can have detrimental behavioral effects on children. The United States federal government must take example from a growing number of European countries and ban the ...

Effect Of The Consumer's Choice To Revoke The Contract On Determining The Moment At Which The Contract Is Concluded, Yousef Mohammed Shandi 2021 United Arab Emirates University

Effect Of The Consumer's Choice To Revoke The Contract On Determining The Moment At Which The Contract Is Concluded, Yousef Mohammed Shandi

Journal Sharia and Law

The choice to revoke the conclusion of a contract is one of the most important guarantees of a complete consent in contracts. It allows consumers a chance to contemplate and consider carefully the contract before they announce their final acceptance thereof. Despite the paramount significance of this choice in relation to the consumer, it raises a complex legal problem regarding the determination of the moment of concluding the consumer contract, which is associated with the choice to revocation. A legal school deems that such a choice takes effect immediately following the exchange of consent even before the period of revocation ...

The Efficacy Of The Law Protecting The Jordanian Consumer An Analytical Study Of The Law And Its Means Of Enforcement, Firas Kasassbeh, Moayyad Mohamed Al Qudat

Journal Sharia and Law

The Jordanian government has shown some hesitation in issuing an Act for the protecting of consumers against the unfair practices that might be committed by suppliers. Yet, it has, under the pressure of many private organizations and academics, drafted a proposed Bill to this end, which needs many legislative steps before becoming binding Act.

This study provides an analytical and critical account of the effectiveness of this Bill through exploring two of its main areas. The first area involves the scope of the protection provided by the Bill (the proposed Act), while the second, and covers the techniques adopted for ...

The Opioid Crisis Or Climate Change: Which Is More Likely To Succeed Under The Tobacco Litigation Model?, Elizabeth W. De Leon 2021 Texas A&M University School of Law

The Opioid Crisis Or Climate Change: Which Is More Likely To Succeed Under The Tobacco Litigation Model?, Elizabeth W. De Leon

Texas A&M Law Review

Societal problems can occasionally have legal solutions, and several tools exist to implement change, including litigation and regulation. However, what elements make a societal problem more suitable for litigation or regulation? This Article examines four different societal issues (tobacco use, obesity, opioid addiction, and climate change) to determine whether litigation or regulation is the more appropriate route for success. The tobacco litigation serves as a successful example, while the fast food litigation serves as an unsuccessful example. Six signs of success are derived from the tobacco litigation: a large settlement agreement, evidence of corporate wrongdoing, change in public opinion, the ...


Coronavirus "Cures" And The Courts, Chad G. Marzen, Michael Conklin 2021 William & Mary Law School

Coronavirus "Cures" And The Courts, Chad G. Marzen, Michael Conklin

William & Mary Business Law Review

The coronavirus pandemic has drastically affected nearly every aspect of American life. Unfortunately, it has also created an opportunity for those willing to exploit vulnerable citizens by selling fake “cures.” This Article analyzes a lawsuit against televangelist Jim Bakker for doing just that. This Article also calls for increased protection for individuals when a global health pandemic and national emergency have been declared. This Article advocates a novel proposal—the enacting of a federal statute making it a felony for an individual to knowingly sell a fraudulent cure for any disease that has been designated a pandemic by the World ...
