Setting Aside An Arbitration Award, 2009 Fordham University
Setting Aside An Arbitration Award, Fernando Leila
I - Facts Most arbitration rules stipulate that the arbitral awards that result from arbitration under those agreements or rules are ‘final.’ Yet there is almost always the possibility for a party to challenge the award, whether or not the parties have agreed. According to the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (“UNCITRAL”), a successful challenge will usually result in the award being ‘set aside,’ ‘vacated,’ or’ annulled,’ and therefore ceasing to exist, at least within the jurisdiction of the court setting it aside. To set aside an award means to 'declare the award to be disregarded in whole or ...

The Missing Link of Democracy: The Federal Reserve Submission to the Democratic Government
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, (i.e., the "business cycle") the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
This paper examines the shortcomings of the Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) as an institution, its power and policy under a democratic system of government, and the consequences thereof.

By Prohibiting Foreign Lawyers From Participating, California Is Missing Out, David D. Caron, Leah D. Harhay

California Code of Civil Procedure §1282.4 and Local Rule 9.43 govern the ability of attorneys who are not members of the State Bar of California to act as counsel in international arbitrations here. Both allow out-of-state attorneys to participate in these arbitrations, but provide no similar provisions for out-of-country attorneys. However, even out-of-state attorneys are not safe. In 2011, when §1282.4 sunsets, out-of-state attorneys will also be barred from appearing as counsel in California-based international arbitrations.
How China Succeeded In Protecting Olympic Trademarks And Why This Success Will Not Generate Immediate Improvements In Intellectual Property Protection In China, 2009 University of Pennsylvania Law School
How China Succeeded In Protecting Olympic Trademarks And Why This Success Will Not Generate Immediate Improvements In Intellectual Property Protection In China, Aileen M. Mcgill
Aileen M McGill
After centuries of stagnant growth and international isolation, China has emerged as the fastest-growing economy in the world and one of the most important parties in international trade. This staggering growth and influx of foreign goods has led to rampant counterfeiting of brand-name goods in a society with little cultural basis for individual intellectual property rights. When Beijing was awarded the 2008 summer Olympics in 2001, the Chinese government moved quickly to prepare for this beloved international event, rallying this massive country for, what many considered to be their grand emergence onto the world stage. One of the reforms enacted ...

Importers As Regulators: Product Safety In A Globalized World, 2009 University of California, Berkeley
Importers As Regulators: Product Safety In A Globalized World, Andrew T. Guzman
Andrew T Guzman
In the wake of scandals involving lead toys, toxic toothpaste, poisonous pet food, and other dangerous products in recent years, policymakers have proposed a variety of strategies that purport to address safety concerns. Though many of these proposals would have salutary effects on consumer product safety, they do not provide, either individually or collectively, a full solution to the problem. This chapter offers a different proposal for addressing the challenges that global production poses for state-centered regulation of import safety. We argue that regulators should structure administrative penalties to make private importers regulate the foreign manufacturing processes from which they ...

It seeks to analyse important relevant outcomes for regulators, the public and pharmaceutical industry, as well as ...
Nanotechnology And The International Law Of Weaponry: Towards International Regulation Of Nano-Weapons., 2009 Australian National University
Nanotechnology And The International Law Of Weaponry: Towards International Regulation Of Nano-Weapons., Thomas A. Faunce, Hitoshi Nasu
Thomas A Faunce
The development of nanotechnology for military application is an emerging area of research and development, the pace and extent of which has not been fully anticipated by international legal regulation. Nano-weapons are referred to here as objects and devices using nanotechnology or causing effects in nano-scale that are designed or used for harming humans. Such weapons, despite their controversial human and environmental toxicity, are not comprehensively covered by specific, targeted regulation under international law. This article critically examines current international humanitarian law and arms control law regimes to determine whether significant gaps exist in the regulation of nanotechnology focused on ...
