Human Trafficking From An International Protection Perspective: Probing The Meaning Of Anti-Trafficking Measures For The Protection Of Trafficking Victims, With Special Regard To The United Kingdom, Hannah Simon 2010 Penn State Law

Human Trafficking From An International Protection Perspective: Probing The Meaning Of Anti-Trafficking Measures For The Protection Of Trafficking Victims, With Special Regard To The United Kingdom, Hannah Simon

Penn State International Law Review

The Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (ECAT) entered into force in the U.K. on the 1 April 2009. This event led to the belief that Britain's adherence will considerably improve the protection of trafficking victims in the country. In light of such expectations, this study examines which implications anti-trafficking measures may have on the legal protection of trafficking victims, while concentrating on new legal developments in the U.K. The paper analyses first the response of the anti-trafficking framework to international protection needs, and second, considers the scope of an alternative protection ...

Prosecute The Cheerleader, Save The World?: Asserting Federal Jurisdiction Over Child Pornography Crimes Committed Through “Sexting”, Isaac A. Mcbeth

Law Student Publications

This comment explores the possible scenarios in which sexting could give rise to prosecution under Protection of Children Against Sexual Exploitation Act of 1977 (“PCASEA”) for transporting, distributing, receiving, or possessing child pornography.2 Part II provides background information on the practice and prevalence of sexting. Part III discusses the definition of child pornography within the meaning of federal law and applies that definition to sexting. Part IV presents the concept of the transporting or shipping in interstate or foreign commerce jurisdictional hook and its potential relation to sexting. Part V applies the principles of statutory interpretation to the relevant ...


Reunifying Privacy Law, Lior Strahilevitz 2010 University of Chicago

Reunifying Privacy Law, Lior Strahilevitz

Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

In the years since Samuel Warren and Louis Brandies proposed a unified theory of invasion of privacy tort liability, American information privacy law became increasingly fragmented and decreasingly coherent. William Prosser's 1960 article, Privacy, which heavily influenced the Restatement of Torts, endorsed and hastened this trend toward fragmentation, which spread from tort law to the various statutory branches of information privacy law. This paper argues for the reunification of privacy law in two connected ways. First, Prosser's fragmented privacy tort should be replaced with a unitary tort for invasion of privacy that looks to the private or public ...

Likeability V. Competence: The Impossible Choice Faced By Female Politicians, Attenuated By Lawyers, Andrea K. Schneider, Catherine H. Tinsley, Sandra Cheldelin, Emily T. Amanatullah 2010 Marquette University Law School

Likeability V. Competence: The Impossible Choice Faced By Female Politicians, Attenuated By Lawyers, Andrea K. Schneider, Catherine H. Tinsley, Sandra Cheldelin, Emily T. Amanatullah

Faculty Publications

The 2008 election highlighted a dilemma often faced by women in the professional world - a double bind between being perceived as competent or as likeable. Both qualities are imperative for success but the incongruity of normative female roles (warm, nurturing) with characteristics perceived necessary for professional success (independence, assertiveness) means that women are either seen as likeable, but incompetent, or as competent, but unlikeable. Wherever you fell along the political spectrum, it is clear that Hillary Clinton’s historic candidacy for the Presidency of the United States followed by Sarah Palin’s candidacy for Vice-President provided a unique lens for ...


The Legal Regime Governing Transfer Of Persons In The Fight Against Terrorism, Margaret L. Satterthwaite 2010 NYU School of Law

The Legal Regime Governing Transfer Of Persons In The Fight Against Terrorism, Margaret L. Satterthwaite

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

The practice of rendition - the involuntary transfer of an individual across borders without recourse to extradition or deportation proceedings - is not new. Indeed, the practice has been used by governments for more than a century. Famous renditions include that of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann from Argentina to Israel, and terrorist Carlos “the Jackal” (Ilich Ramirez Sanchez) from Sudan to France. Although such renditions have been controversial in human rights circles, they have been celebrated by many as crucial in the fight against impunity for grave crimes and are sometimes called “rendition to justice.”

The administration of former U.S ...


The Conflict Over Conflict Management, David B. Lipsky, Ariel C. Avgar 2010 Cornell University

The Conflict Over Conflict Management, David B. Lipsky, Ariel C. Avgar

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] In this article we look at the traditional approach to workplace conflict, the evolution of conflict management, criticism of this process by progressive and traditional critics, and then consider whether they can be reconciled by taking what we call a strategic view of conflict management in the workplace. This view calls for an alignment between the goals of the conflict management system and the overarching nature of the organization in which that system is implemented. The management of conflict, according to this approach, should complement the organization’s strategic posture and existing structures. We maintain that the level of ...

Please Check One—Male Or Female?: Confronting Gender Identity Discrimination In Collegiate Residential Life, Katherine A. Womack

Law Student Publications

While litigation in this field has rarely involved colleges and universities, collegiate environments are often the “forefront for social activism,”5 so it is likely the issue of transgender housing discrimination will soon explode on campus. It is now critical that colleges, universities, and the counsel who represent them either prepare to address these issues when they arise or explore possibilities to preempt the legal issues that will surely arise at their schools. Part II of this comment discusses the legal definition of transgender. Part III examines the history of the treatment of transgender persons in American courts, as well ...
