Reconstructing The Taiwanese Rule On Pure Economic Loss: Establishing A General Standard For Recovery For Pure Economic Loss In Unintentional Torts, Wen-Hsuan Yang 2014 Maurer School of Law: Indiana University

Reconstructing The Taiwanese Rule On Pure Economic Loss: Establishing A General Standard For Recovery For Pure Economic Loss In Unintentional Torts, Wen-Hsuan Yang

Theses and Dissertations

An important issue in Taiwan today is whether pure economic loss can be recovered as a right under the former part of first paragraph of Article 184 in Civil Code of Taiwan, thereby making it recoverable in unintentional torts. Contrary to most scholars in Taiwan, this Thesis argues that 1) pure economic loss should be a recognizable harm under the former part of first paragraph of Article 184; and 2) economic loss should be considered on a category-by-category basis, rather than the traditional all-or-none basis presently used in Taiwan.

Traditionally, two arguments are made against recovery for pure economic loss ...


Duty-Bearers For Positive Rights, Jeremy Waldron 2014 NELLCO

Duty-Bearers For Positive Rights, Jeremy Waldron

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

Claims about social and economic rights (as a kind of human right) are often criticized because they fail to specify who are the bearers of the corresponding duties. We usually say that states are the duty-bearers, but it may not be possible for a poor state to bear the burden of these rights. And anyway it may be a mistake to focus exclusively on states in an age of globalization. This paper uses some analytic ideas from the 1970s and 1980s to address this problem. Drawing on the work of Neil MacCormick and Joseph Raz, it argues that it is ...

Law And Religion: Sharia Law And The First Amendment, Joseph A. Williamson 2014 Liberty University

Law And Religion: Sharia Law And The First Amendment, Joseph A. Williamson

Senior Honors Theses

America has long been seen as the capital of religious freedom and individual rights. In recent years a debate has arisen over whether an individual can personally adhere to the legal concept of sharia law under the protections of the first amendment. At the center of this debate is precedent that can be drawn from previous interactions between religion and American ideals. Two similar issues that have been settled both judicially and legislatively are the conscientious draft objector and the federal prohibition of polygamy. By studying the roots of Islamic law and then the basis of these two concepts, a ...
