Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Ryan G. Vacca

Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...

Bitcoin: Crypto-Currency Or Bust, Ilon Oliveira

GGU Law Review Blog

Bitcoin’s nature makes regulation extremely difficult for international governments.

Publications

The mass shooting that left three dead and sixteen injured this year at Fort Hood is a stark reminder of the challenges and difficulties facing our service men and women.

One was hosted by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the other by the Puller Clinic at William & Mary Law School.
