Bringing Progress To Paradise; What I Got From Giving To A Mountain Village In Nepal, Jeff Rasley 2009 Selected Works

Bringing Progress To Paradise; What I Got From Giving To A Mountain Village In Nepal, Jeff Rasley

Jeff Rasley

Bringing Progress to Paradise describes Rasley’s transformation from lawyer to adventurer to committed philanthropist. We are attracted to the simpler way of life in these communities, and we are changed by our experience of it. They are attracted to us, because we bring economic benefits. Bringing Progress to Paradise offers Rasley’s critical reflection on the tangled relationship between tourists and locals in “exotic” locales and the effect of Western values on some of the most remote locations on earth.

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 ...


Conserving The Canvas: Reducing The Environmental Footprint Of Legal Briefs By Re-Imagining Court Rules And Document Design Strategies, Ruth Anne Robbins 2009 Rutgers School of Law, Camden

Conserving The Canvas: Reducing The Environmental Footprint Of Legal Briefs By Re-Imagining Court Rules And Document Design Strategies, Ruth Anne Robbins

Ruth Anne Robbins

This article argues that the current system of court rules needlessly wastes natural resources because the required document design requires more paper usage than is needed or that is even optimal for reading rates. The article assumes that, even with electronic filing, most legal documents are still read in print form. It includes discussion and calculations about how a change in court rules and attorney practices could help reduce the environmental impact of briefs submitted in appellate courts. This article follows up a previous article, Painting With Print: Incorporating Concepts of Typographic and Layout Design into the Text of Legal ...

It's All About The People: Creating A "Community Of Memory" In Civil Procedure Ii, Part One, Jennifer E. Spreng 2009 Arizona Summit Law School

It's All About The People: Creating A "Community Of Memory" In Civil Procedure Ii, Part One, Jennifer E. Spreng

Jennifer E Spreng

In Fall 2008, a nascent classroom community emerged among my Civil Procedure students, teaching assistants and I. That term’s adventure eventually became the vital “past” for the fully formed community that would knit students of future classes together as one.

The genesis of this early classroom community was my ideal of “the good lawyer” as the small-firm or small-jurisdiction practitioner I had known as a seven-year solo practitioner in a town of 50,000 people. That ideal was a combination of “the rhythms of the law” that run throughout the specialties; a more respectful and less stratified model of ...

Who Wants To Be A Muggle? The Diminished Legitimacy Of Law As Magic, Mark E. Burge 2009 Texas A&M University School of Law

Who Wants To Be A Muggle? The Diminished Legitimacy Of Law As Magic, Mark E. Burge

Mark Edwin Burge

In the Harry Potter world, the magical population lives among the non-magical Muggle population, but we Muggles are largely unaware of them. This secrecy is by elaborate design and is necessitated by centuries-old hostility to wizards by the non-magical majority. The reasons behind this hostility, when combined with the similarities between Harry Potter-stylemagic and American law, make Rowling’s novels into a cautionary tale for the legal profession that it not treat law as a magic unknowable to non-lawyers. Comprehensibility — as a self-contained, normative value in the enactment interpretation, and practice of law — is given short-shrift by the legal profession ...


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 ...
