Trial By Combat In The Modern World, Michael L. Smith 2022 University of California - Los Angeles

Trial By Combat In The Modern World, Michael L. Smith

Barry Law Review

The ancient practice of trial by combat was abandoned hundreds of years ago and has never been employed in America. Yet this has not stopped litigants and others from demanding trial by combat—a tactic which, while infrequent, implicates deeper questions of the history of American law. In the past several years, several high-profile demands for trial by combat have prompted media attention and caused several commentators to suggest that trial by combat may be an option for civil litigants. Most coverage and commentary only focuses on each instance of trial by combat as they arise—without attention to other ...

Proving The Negative: Florida's Stand Your Ground Law And The Burden Of Proof, Connor Bishop 2022 Barry University School of Law

Proving The Negative: Florida's Stand Your Ground Law And The Burden Of Proof, Connor Bishop

Barry Law Review

Self-defense and Stand Your Ground laws are controversial subjects in today’s world. On one side, some argue that these laws protect our Second Amendment right to bear arms, protect ourselves, and our loved ones without fear of criminal prosecution. On the other hand, opponents argue that Stand Your Ground laws encourage evermore violent acts and vigilantism. In the center is the controversy of applying the law. From the people who are disproportionately charged and tried to those that avoid prosecution, this country has become a heightened example of the problems with the current state of self-defense. From Zimmerman to ...

Unionizing In The Chambers Of Government, Louis Cholden-Brown 2022 Office of the New York City Comptroller

Unionizing In The Chambers Of Government, Louis Cholden-Brown

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

As overall union membership stagnates nationwide due to the contraction

of traditionally unionized industries, labor organizations have made historic

inroads into new, highly volatile employment sectors, including digital media,

tech, political campaigns, and the gig economy. One such sector that

has seen new life is state and local legislative employees. Excluded from coverage

by the National Labor Relations Act, legislative employees have been

subject to disparate labor rights, job protections, and terms and conditions

of employment across and within states. While efforts to secure collective

bargaining rights for this sector have occurred over the past twenty-five

years, the simultaneous yet ...

Legal Age, Alexander A. Boni-Saenz 2022 Chicago-Kent College of Law

Legal Age, Alexander A. Boni-Saenz

Boston College Law Review

How old are you? This deceptively simple question has a clear answer in the law, which is a number measuring the amount of time that has elapsed since birth. However, as scientists discover various biomarkers of human aging and individuals openly embrace more fluid identities, this chronological definition will soon have to compete with biological and subjective alternatives. Legal scholars have previously examined the role of age in the legal system, but they have done so assuming a chronological definition. This is the first Article to examine critically the antecedent question of how we should define legal age after one ...
