Better Serving Those Who Serve: California’S Lgbt Veterans Speak Out California Department Of Veterans Affairs Lgbt Veterans Leadership Forum September 26-27, 2014, California Research Bureau

California Agencies

To better understand California’s LGBT veterans’ needs, California’s Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) worked closely with the California LGBT Veterans Leadership Forum Planning Committee to convene the first state LGBT Veteran Leadership Forum.

Education Disparities Based On Wealth: Struggles Facing Poor Aspiring Lawyers, Angelica Torres 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

Education Disparities Based On Wealth: Struggles Facing Poor Aspiring Lawyers, Angelica Torres

Student Publications

This paper will focus on my lack of knowledge about how growing up poor would make my own struggle to become a lawyer – especially a lawyer hoping to one day serve her own community – seem cluttered with unending obstacles. Given the costs of becoming a lawyer, and given that poverty disproportionately affects minorities, it is easy to understand why diversity is still lacking in the legal profession. Furthermore, because of the economic obstacles the poor face from the very beginning, attempting to work in the public interest field can add to the lists of challenges by disincentivizing those who truly ...

When Family Meets Business: The Challenge Of Work/Life Balance, Michele Benedetto Neitz 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

When Family Meets Business: The Challenge Of Work/Life Balance, Michele Benedetto Neitz

Publications

Some businesses in San Francisco are listening closely to the needs of their employees while maximizing efficiency. Technology companies, for example, were pioneers in designing workspaces to fit the physical and emotional needs of their workers. This includes cafeterias with free food and coffee, gym and exercise rooms, meditation rooms, and oncall massage therapists.

Of course, tech companies' use of onsite facilities can be viewed as an attempt to stack the work/life balance deck, allowing people to spend more of their "life" at the workplace. In turn, employees in these companies need not ever leave the building — a clear ...

Canadian Mortgage Law And Prepayment Penalties, Peter Spiro 2015 University of Toronto

Canadian Mortgage Law And Prepayment Penalties, Peter Spiro

Western Journal of Legal Studies

This article illustrates the imbalance of power between the mortgagor and mortgagee, which is particularly apparent for individual mortgagors. Prepayment and due on sale provisions are standard mortgage terms that contribute to this imbalance. Although these clauses purport to operate separately, in reality, both are frequently triggered by the sale of a property; the law of contract suggests that these provisions should not be enforceable. Relevant legislation is lacking in this area and should be reformed to provide more effective consumer protection while acknowledging that banks operate with the goal of maximizing business. A reasonable compromise would involve basing the ...
