Exclusion Zones In The Law Of Armed Conflict At Sea: Evolution In Law And Practice, Sandesh Sivakumaran 2016 U.S. Naval War College

Exclusion Zones In The Law Of Armed Conflict At Sea: Evolution In Law And Practice, Sandesh Sivakumaran

International Law Studies

This article analyses the changes in the law and practice of exclusion zones in the law of armed conflict at sea. It identifies three principal phases. First, it explores the exclusion zones of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–1905, which were modest in size and defensive in character. Second, it turns to the exclusion zones of the First World War and several subsequent conflicts. The exclusion zones of this period were fundamentally different to those of the Russo-Japanese war: if a vessel was within an exclusion zone, it was deemed susceptible to attack. The article then turns to the third ...

International Law And Japan’S Territorial Disputes, Raul (Pete) Pedrozo 2016 U.S. Naval War College

International Law And Japan’S Territorial Disputes, Raul (Pete) Pedrozo

International Law Studies

Five of the most contentious territorial disputes that plague the Asia-Pacific today have their roots in the San Francisco Peace Treaty. The treaty required Japan to renounce all claims with regard to a number of lands, but failed to declare a successor State to these lands. Over the years, these disputes have intensified as a result of rising nationalism and a growing demand for ocean resources. This article discusses the merits of Japan’s claims to the Kurile Islands, Liancourt Rocks and Pinnacle Islands and concludes that Japan’s claims are superior to those of the other claimants.

Naquin V. Elevating Boats, Llc: The Fifth Circuit’S Improper Expansion Of Jones Act “Seaman Status” Qualification, Timothy M. O'Hara 2015 Pace University School of Law

Naquin V. Elevating Boats, Llc: The Fifth Circuit’S Improper Expansion Of Jones Act “Seaman Status” Qualification, Timothy M. O'Hara

Pace Law Review

The story began nearly a century ago, when Congress enacted the Jones Act and effectively made “seamen the most generously treated personal injury victims in American law.” But defining a Jones Act seaman has not come easy, as it took the United States Supreme Court seventy five years to arrive at the modern seaman status test. This commentary examines the “tortured history” of the Jones Act, how qualification for the statute’s protections has evolved, the modern seaman status test, and the implications of the Fifth Circuit’s recent application thereof. Section II gives a brief history and explanation of ...

Davey Jones’S Lockup: Changing The U.S. Approach To Prosecution And Punishment Of Maritime Piracy In Universal Jurisdiction Cases, Collin McCarthy 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

Davey Jones’S Lockup: Changing The U.S. Approach To Prosecution And Punishment Of Maritime Piracy In Universal Jurisdiction Cases, Collin Mccarthy

Golden Gate University Law Review

Recognizing the need for the United States government to take a leadership role in confronting and suppressing the resurging threat of maritime piracy, this Comment evaluates the current status of maritime piracy laws in the United States. Moreover, as the use of legal mechanisms will play a vital part in combating maritime piracy, this Comment seeks to demonstrate that the statutory system as it stands is both outdated and illsuited for addressing the complexities of piracy in the modern era, and will only impede the achievement of current strategic objectives. More specifically, as the crime of piracy is no longer ...
