"Los Bienes Jurídicos Colectivos En El Derecho Penal. Consideraciones Sobre El Fundamento Y Validez De La Protección Penal De Los Intereses Macrosociales", Elky Villegas Paiva

Elky A. Villegas Paiva

El trabajo aborda la cuestionada intervención del Derecho penal en la protección de los bienes jurídicos colectivos. Se parte de destacar el condicionamiento que ejerce la sociedad del riesgo en la configuración del moderno Derecho penal. Posteriormente se realiza una breve descripción sobre el origen de los bienes macrosociales en el campo penal, para luego analizar los presupuestos de merecimiento y necesidad de pena, condiciones que deben superar aquellos intereses –individuales o colectivos- para que su tutela penal sea legítima. Finalmente se examinan las técnicas de tipificación frecuentemente empleadas para la protección penal de estos intereses colectivos, pues es aquí ...

Just The Facts: Solving The Corporate Privilege Waiver Dilemma, Don Berthiaume 2009 Columbia Law School at Catholic University

Just The Facts: Solving The Corporate Privilege Waiver Dilemma, Don Berthiaume

Don R Berthiaume

How can corporations provide “just the facts” — which are, in fact, not privileged — without waiving the attorney client privilege and work product protection? This article argues for an addition to the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure based upon Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which allows civil litigants to issue a subpoena to an organization and cause them to “designate one or more officers, directors, or managing agents, or designate other persons who consent to testify on its behalf … about information known or reasonably available to the organization.”[6] Why should we look to Fed ...

Ending Death By Dangerousness, William Berry 2009 University of Mississippi Main Campus

Ending Death By Dangerousness, William Berry

William W Berry III

The use of the death penalty (both in number of new death sentences and actual executions) has been steadily decreasing in the past decade. This decrease has largely been attributed to two phenomena: (1) the continued discovery of individuals on death row who are actually innocent of the crimes they committed and (2) the increasing use of life without parole as a sentencing alternative to the death penalty. Abolitionists have successfully seized upon the first of these in raising continuing doubts about the use of the death penalty. This article proposes a deeper exploration of the second, the availability of ...


Can Criminal Law Be Controlled?, Darryl Brown 2009 University of Virginia School of Law

Can Criminal Law Be Controlled?, Darryl Brown

Darryl K. Brown

This review of Douglas Husak's 2008 book, Overcriminalization: The Limits of the Criminal Law, summarizes and largely endorses Husak's normative argument about the indefensible expansiveness of much contemporary criminal liability. It then offers a skeptical (or pessimistic) argument about the possibilities for a normative theory such as Husak's to have much effect on criminal justice policy in light of the political barriers to reform.


Pragmatism, Originalism, Race And The Case Against Terry V. Ohio, Lawrence Rosenthal 2009 Chapman University School of Law

Pragmatism, Originalism, Race And The Case Against Terry V. Ohio, Lawrence Rosenthal

Lawrence Rosenthal

Perhaps no decision of the United States Supreme Court concerning the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition on “unreasonable search and seizure” has come in for more criticism than Terry v. Ohio, in which the Supreme Court concluded that even absent probable cause to arrest, a brief detention and protective search of an individual comports with the Fourth Amendment “where a police officer observes unusual conduct which leads him reasonably to conclude that criminal activity may be afoot and that the person with whom he is dealing may be armed and presently dangerous . . .” Terry is frequently denounced as granting the police excessively ...

Debate, The Right To Remain Silent, Charles D. Weisselberg, Stephanos Bibas 2009 Berkeley Law

Debate, The Right To Remain Silent, Charles D. Weisselberg, Stephanos Bibas

Charles D Weisselberg

In The Right to Remain Silent, Professors Charles Weisselberg and Stephanos Bibas debate the state of the right to remain silent after the Supreme Court’s decision in Berghuis v. Thompkins, which held that a suspect in custody must affirmatively state her intent to remain silent in order to invoke that right.

Avvisa Eller Ogilla?, Christoffer Wong 2009 Faculty of Law, Lund University

Avvisa Eller Ogilla?, Christoffer Wong

Christoffer Wong

This contribution examines the question whether a court should acquit (i.e. to deliver a verdict of ‘not guilty’) or to dismiss a criminal proceeding when it, e.g. lacks jurisdiction to adjudge the case. The choice may have implications on the question of ne bis in idem.


Régimen De Prisión Preventiva En América Latina: La Pena Anticipada, La Lógica Cautelar Y La Contrarreforma / Pre-Trial Detention Regime In Latin America: The Pre-Trial Punishment, Flight Risk And The Counter Reform, Claudio Fuentes Maureira 2009 Universidad Diego Portales

Régimen De Prisión Preventiva En América Latina: La Pena Anticipada, La Lógica Cautelar Y La Contrarreforma / Pre-Trial Detention Regime In Latin America: The Pre-Trial Punishment, Flight Risk And The Counter Reform, Claudio Fuentes Maureira

Claudio Fuentes Maureira

One of the main reasons that justified the criminal procedure reform in Latin America was the possibility to overcome and changed different practices that were very problematic. One of these complex situations was the excessive use of pre-trial detention in the context of criminal investigations; in particular, the abuse of this institution had a dangerous outcome when it comes to the protection of the human rights of the detainees.

From the mid 90’s onwards, most of the Latin American countries started a reform of their criminal institutions and proceedings. A considerable portion of the legal framework was heavily modified ...
