Direito Pensado, Sentido E Vivido Em L. A. Warat, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Direito Pensado, Sentido E Vivido Em L. A. Warat, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Em 16 de Dezembro de 2010 faleceu o jurista argentino que o Brasil sobretudo adoptou, Luis Alberto Warat. Era um iconoclasta, um heterodoxo. Este artigo é uma primeira evocação do seu pensamento, inseparável da sua própria vivência do Direito. Se crescermos na nossa cultura jurisfilosófica, um dia será considerado analfabeto em Direito quem não conhecer bem Warat. Se estagnarmos ou regredirmos, será um desconhecido, e nem sequer ilustre.

O Céu No Bolso, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Há quem preveja ainda o fim do livro. Contudo, cada vez mais livros se publicam todos os anos. Há quem deplore a falta de leitura, mas mais e mais pessoas são alfabetizadas, e lêem. Qualquer coisa não bate certo. Percentagens? Tipo de livros? Seja como for, um novo protagonista entra em cena: o e book. Mal amado também pelos mais conservadores. E contudo...

May It Please The Senate: An Empirical Analysis Of The Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings Of Supreme Court Nominees, 1939-2009, Lori A. Ringhand, Paul M. Collins Jr. 2011 University of Georgia School of Law

May It Please The Senate: An Empirical Analysis Of The Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings Of Supreme Court Nominees, 1939-2009, Lori A. Ringhand, Paul M. Collins Jr.

Scholarly Works

This paper examines the questions asked and answers given by every Supreme Court nominee who has appeared to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee since 1939. In doing so, it uses a new dataset developed by the authors. This database, which provides a much-needed empirical foundation for scholarship in emerging areas of constitutional law and political science, captures all of the statements made at the hearings and codes these comments by issue area, subissue area, party of the appointing president, and party of the questioning senator. The dataset allows us to quantify for the fist time such things as which ...


Identidade E Atraso, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Identidade E Atraso, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

O Professor Fernando Pereira Marques deu a lume um novo livro: Sobre as Causas do Atraso Nacional (Lisboa, Coisas de Ler, Dezembro de 2010). Não poderia haver reflexão mais oportuna. É uma vasta e documentadíssima reflexão, uma preocupação por Portugal não assente em impressões e preconceitos, mas em dados e em testemunhos eloquentes e credíveis. Podem abalar certezas, e sem dúvida desfazem mitos.

My Brethren’S (Gate) Keeper? Testimony By U.S. Judges At Others’ Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings: Its Implications For Judicial Independence And Judicial Ethics, Mary Clark 2011 American University Washington College of Law

My Brethren’S (Gate) Keeper? Testimony By U.S. Judges At Others’ Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings: Its Implications For Judicial Independence And Judicial Ethics, Mary Clark

Mary L. Clark

This article, prompted by the testimony of seven of Samuel Alito's then-current and former Third Circuit colleagues at his hearing to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, examines the merits of federal judges testifying at others' Supreme Court confirmation hearings. While mindful of other approaches to the question of judicial participation in other judicial appointments systems and of their comparative advantages and disadvantages, the author nevertheless concludes that judges threaten judicial independence and judicial ethics principles when they exercise power in the Article III appointments realm. It is not so much a question of judges usurping ...


Crise & Democracia, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Crise & Democracia, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Vivemos num mundo em grande medida imaginado. Nunca foi tão real a criação artificial de realidades, que se tornam realidades mesmo. O mundo das Finanças é um desses reinos. O problema é que elas afectam - e de que maneira - a vida real das pessoas. E a comunicação social é o eco dessa magia, de que dependemos cada vez mais, por todo o Mundo. Este artigo tem como base o publicado no semanário "Grande Porto", mas acrescenta-lhe um pequeno texto de Paulo Bonavides sobre a ligação entre democracia e Estado social. É que sem um e outra, é impossível suportar a ...

An Essay On Torts: States Of Argument, Marshall S. Shapo 2011 Northwestern University School of Law

An Essay On Torts: States Of Argument, Marshall S. Shapo

Faculty Working Papers

This essay summarizes high points in torts scholarship and case law over a period of two generations, highlighting the "states of argument" that have characterized tort law over that period. It intertwines doctrine and policy. Its doctrinal features include the tradtional spectrum of tort liability, the duty question, problems of proof, and the relative incoherency of damages rules. Noting the cross-doctrinal role of tort as a solver of functional problems, it focuses on major issues in products liability and medical malpractice. The essay discusses such elements of policy as the role of power in tort law, the tension between communitarianism ...


Beyond Common Sense: A Social Psychological Study Of Iqbal's Effect On Claims Of Race Discrimination, Victor D. Quintanilla 2011 Indiana University - Bloomington

Beyond Common Sense: A Social Psychological Study Of Iqbal's Effect On Claims Of Race Discrimination, Victor D. Quintanilla

Victor D. Quintanilla

This article examines the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 129 S. Ct. 1937 (2009) from a social psychological perspective, and empirically studies Iqbal’s effect on claims of race discrimination.

In Twombly and then Iqbal, the Court recast Rule 8 from a notice-based rule into a plausibility standard. Under Iqbal, federal judges must evaluate whether each complaint contains sufficient factual matter “to state a claim to relief that is plausible on its face.” When doing so, Iqbal requires judges to draw on their “judicial experience and common sense.” Courts apply Iqbal at the pleading stage, before ...

Heidegger And The Essence Of Adjudication, George Souri 2011 DePaul University

Heidegger And The Essence Of Adjudication, George Souri

George Souri

This paper presents an account of adjudication based on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. As this paper argues, we can only hope to better understand adjudication if we recognize that adjudication is a socio-temporally situated activity, and not a theoretical object. Heidegger’s philosophical insights are especially salient to such a project for several reasons. First, Heidegger’s re-conception of ontology, and his notion of being-in-the-world, provide a truer-to-observation account of how human beings come to understand their world and take in the content of experience towards completing projects. Second, Heidegger’s account of context, inter-subjectivity, and common understanding provide ...

Juvenile Justice Reform 2.0, Tamar R. Birckhead 2011 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Juvenile Justice Reform 2.0, Tamar R. Birckhead

Tamar R Birckhead

Before the 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education, the United States Supreme Court’s exercise of judicial review did not support the notion that constitutional litigation could be an effective instrument of social reform. The Court’s principled rejection of racially segregated public education, however, gave new legitimacy to the concept of judicial review, transforming it from an obstacle into a principal means of achieving social progress. Since then, federal courts have impacted public policy in many areas – from housing, welfare, and transportation to mental health institutions, prisons, and juvenile courts. Yet, there are inherent structural challenges to ...
