Standard Of Review Under The Sps Agreement After Ec-Hormones Ii, Michael Du 2010 Lancaster University Law School

Standard Of Review Under The Sps Agreement After Ec-Hormones Ii, Michael Du

Ming Du

A recurring and delicate issue in the GATT/WTO dispute settlement processes is whether, and to what extent, WTO Panels and the Appellate Body (AB) should defer to national government decisions. With regard to disputes under the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS Agreement), WTO Panels adopted, and the AB endorsed, a standard of review close to de novo review. As a result, the WTO jurisprudence in SPS disputes has been subject to sharp criticisms over the years. In the recent EC-Hormones II case, the AB has deviated from its established case law and articulated a ...


Can The Law Facilitate A Finance Shift From Mitigation To Adaption, Kirk W. Junker 2010 Faculty of Law, University of Cologne

Can The Law Facilitate A Finance Shift From Mitigation To Adaption, Kirk W. Junker

Kirk W Junker

"The past went that-a-way. When faced with a totally new situation, we tend always to attach ourselves to the objects, to the floor of the most recent past. We look at the present through a rear-view mirror. We march backwards into the future." (Marshall McLuhan)

There are two very different ways in which one can connect the declarations of a worldwide financial crisis and a worldwide climate crisis. The first way has relatively clear legal aspects and requires just a bit of extra thought to see the connection. Insofar as institutions and sources of law have attempted to address climate ...


Buddhist Legal Studies Experimentation For University-Approved Student And Professional Religious Organizations, CHUEN-TAT KANG 2010 GJS Intellectual Company Australia

Buddhist Legal Studies Experimentation For University-Approved Student And Professional Religious Organizations, Chuen-Tat Kang

Kang Chuen Tat (江俊达)

Organizations in Australia are controlled by civil laws to guide administration. For small religious ethnic Buddhist majority temples, more details protocols with need to be established based on Australian culture of Buddhism. Current lack of proper legal procedures against faulty Buddhist administration will require new guideline. It is understood that specific regulations are specially drafted to guide the ethic of religious organization in addition to civil laws, ensuring no contradictory statements happened.

Growing Pains: Building Arbitration's Legitimacy Through Everyday Arbitral Decisions, John B. McArthur 2010 Law Office of John Burritt McArthur

Growing Pains: Building Arbitration's Legitimacy Through Everyday Arbitral Decisions, John B. Mcarthur

John B McArthur

Arbitration’s rapid growth has come under pressure in recent years. A Supreme Court decision holding that awards under the Federal Arbitration Act cannot be vacated on the merits even if they clearly are wrong has helped discredit arbitration. Misuse of arbitration clauses in consumer, employment, and franchise settings has led to proposals for radical constriction under the Arbitration Fairness Act. Facing these challenges, arbitrators need to ensure the quality of their awards by adhering to the rule of law and resisting the temptation to administer a personal brand of justice. They need to discourage silent awards and provide reasoned ...


Simplify, Simplify, Simplify – An Analysis Of Two Decades Of Judicial Review In The Veterans Benefits Adjudication System, Rory E. Riley 2010 U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify – An Analysis Of Two Decades Of Judicial Review In The Veterans Benefits Adjudication System, Rory E. Riley

Rory E. Riley

Prior to the Veterans' Judicial Review Act, the Department of Veterans Affairs existed in "splendid isolation" - meaning that the department was insulated from judicial review by statute. After the due process revolution of the 1960's and pressure from various veterans’ organizations after the Vietnam war, Congress passed the Veterans' Judicial Review Act in 1988. The Act created the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, an article I court with exclusive jurisdiction over decisions by the Board of Veterans' Appeals. This article argues that 20 years after the Veterans' Judicial Review Act was implemented, the system has become ...

A Review Of David E. Kyvig's The Age Of Impeachment: American Constitutional Culture Since 1960, Daniel H. Erskine

An invited book review DAVID E. KYVIG. The Age of Impeachment: American Constitutional Culture Since 1960. Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, 2008. 500 pp. $34.95 (cloth).

David E. Kyvig's new book chronicles the evolution of impeachment from the mid-1960's to the present. Although the chapters on Nixon and Clinton will leave readers seeking a more detailed discussion about these ...

O Senso Comum Teórico Nos Tribunais Brasileiros E A Banalização Hermenêutica, Simone Martins 2010 Teachers College

O Senso Comum Teórico Nos Tribunais Brasileiros E A Banalização Hermenêutica, Simone Martins

Simone Martins

Aborda a problemática que circunscreve à questão do senso comum teórico dos juristas, quanto à legitimidade do poder judicial

e do papel do juiz, cujas feições restam configuradas no “Juiz-Vespa”, de Aristófanes.

Destaca que a crise paradigmática no Direito é resultante da própria crise da Ciência, cuja evidência é dada pelas súmulas vinculantes que cumprem um papel incisivo ao juiz: emitir decisões standartizadas, sem nome, sem endereço e sem identidade.


Finding The Error In Daubert, mark g. haug 2010 University of Kansas

Finding The Error In Daubert, Mark G. Haug

mark g haug

This article proposes an alternative criterion to Daubert and its progeny—including the amended FRE 702 of 2000—for the admissibility of expert testimony. Relevant to our proposal is the theoretical and empirical difficulty of Daubert’s factor concerning the known or potential error rate. Lurking within this particular factor, however, is the key to a non-controversial criterion for admissibility that is relatively easy to implement. To support our proposal, we consider the error factor from a scientific viewpoint. Using the Daubert case, and a scientific sampling of cases relying upon Daubert for guidance, we endeavor to show how courts ...
