Shifting Attitudes In The Next Generation Of Male Lawyers: Will The Kids Be As Important As The Courtroom?, Shannon R. Webb, Catherine Loughlin 2016 Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology

Shifting Attitudes In The Next Generation Of Male Lawyers: Will The Kids Be As Important As The Courtroom?, Shannon R. Webb, Catherine Loughlin

Western Journal of Legal Studies

We adopted role salience measures to assess whether commitments to occupational, parental, and marital roles differed between male and female law students. The results indicated that male law students were slightly more committed to occupational roles. We also found that male and female law students were equally committed to marital and childcare roles. Surprisingly, male and female law students reported equal self-efficacy to manage work-life conflict. Therefore, the study suggests that the decision to opt out of legal careers likely occurs more at the workplace level and is less attributed to pre-career commitment or self-efficacy levels.

Rape And Sexual Violence: Questionable Inevitability And Moral Responsibility In Armed Conflict, Katherine W. Bogen 2016 Clark University, University of Pittsburgh

Rape And Sexual Violence: Questionable Inevitability And Moral Responsibility In Armed Conflict, Katherine W. Bogen

Scholarly Undergraduate Research Journal at Clark

Wartime sexual violence is a critical human rights issue that usurps the autonomy of its victims as well as their physical and psychological safety. It occurs in both ethnic and non-ethnic wars, across geographic regions, against both men and women, and regardless of the “official” position of commanders, states, and armed groups on the use of rape as tactic of war. This problem is current, pervasive, and global in spite of the status of wartime sexual violence perpetration as a crime against humanity and the capacity of the international criminal court to indict offenders. Though some scholars have argued that ...

Juvenile Culpability And The Felony Murder Rule: Applying The Enmund Standard To Juveniles Facing Felony Murder Charges, Sterling Root 2016 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

Juvenile Culpability And The Felony Murder Rule: Applying The Enmund Standard To Juveniles Facing Felony Murder Charges, Sterling Root

Senior Theses and Projects

Over the past decade, the Supreme Court has issued decisions in numerous cases (Roper v. Simmons, Graham v. Florida, Miller v. Alabama, and Montgomery v. Louisiana) involving juvenile sentencing that have radically transformed our juvenile criminal justice system. While some of these cases did involve juveniles convicted of felony murder, the Supreme Court never directly addressed how to handle juvenile sentencing in felony murder cases. This leaves a gap in society’s understanding of juvenile felony murder sentencing that must be addressed. Otherwise, many juveniles that never intended, attempted, or wished that a life be taken might spend the rest ...
