The Relevance Of International Law To The Domestic Decision On Prosecutions For Past Torture, Bartram Brown 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

The Relevance Of International Law To The Domestic Decision On Prosecutions For Past Torture, Bartram Brown

All Faculty Scholarship

The US, as a champion of human rights abroad, has often been skeptical and even critical when other states have granted de facto amnesty allowing impunity for gross violations of human rights. Nonetheless, some now argue that the US should turn a blind eye to the evidence indicating that under the Bush Administration US government officials formulated and implemented a policy of torture. Naturally, arguments about US national security have been central to the debate. The CIA’s own reports insist that enhanced interrogation techniques have been effective in yielding valuable information vital to the national security of the United ...

The Stories Of Marriage, Katharine K. Baker 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

The Stories Of Marriage, Katharine K. Baker

All Faculty Scholarship

The gay and lesbian community's response to California's Proposition 8 was strong and quick. Within days of the 2008 election, opponents of the measure had targeted its proponents, in particular the Mormon Church, as subjects for scorn. Singling out the Mormon Church on this issue was particularly ironic because to the extent that members of the Mormon Church were responsible for the success of Proposition 8, they simply did to the gay community what courts of the United States consistently did to their forebears: defined away their right to marry. In striking down individuals' rights to enter into ...


All Charities Are Property-Tax Exempt, But Some Charities Are More Exempt Than Others, Evelyn Brody 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

All Charities Are Property-Tax Exempt, But Some Charities Are More Exempt Than Others, Evelyn Brody

All Faculty Scholarship

Attention from the media notwithstanding, the nonprofit sector continues to achieve remarkable success in state supreme courts and statehouses in defending property-tax exemptions. But budget pressures remain. While the intermediate use of “payments in lieu of taxes” has not yet become a systematic compromise solution, PILOTs are attracting growing interest from local taxing jurisdictions. This Article highlights three issues— who decides the parameters of exemption, legislatures or courts; what are the specific factors and vulnerable subsectors; and how exemption is granted or withheld in practice—and concludes with several PILOT case studies. The Appendix sets forth a fifty-one-jurisdiction review of ...


Convergence In The Treatment Of Dominant Firm Conduct: The United States, The European Union, And The Institutional Embeddedness Of Economics, David J. Gerber 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

Convergence In The Treatment Of Dominant Firm Conduct: The United States, The European Union, And The Institutional Embeddedness Of Economics, David J. Gerber

All Faculty Scholarship

Discussions of the competition law treatment of dominant firms often center on the issue of whether EU and U.S. law in this area are likely to converge and thereby provide a more uniform legal terrain for the activities of such firms. Curiously, however, discussions of convergence seldom pay careful attention to key issues such as “What are the differences in the role of economics in the respective legal systems and which factors are likely to affect significantly the likelihood of convergence?”. They often hover in a somewhat mystical realm in which convergence is just expected to “happen”.

Note, Maintaining Educational Adequacy In Times Of Recession: Judicial Review Of State Education Budget Cuts, Vinay Harpalani 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

Note, Maintaining Educational Adequacy In Times Of Recession: Judicial Review Of State Education Budget Cuts, Vinay Harpalani

All Faculty Scholarship

This Note examines judicial review and oversight of state educational adequacy remedies in light of education budget cuts proposed during the recent recession. Educational adequacy litigation has been relatively successful in establishing children’s affirmative right to education under state constitutions, but due to separation of powers concerns, most state courts have been quite deferential to legislatures in reviewing remedies for constitutional violations. This leaves many schools underfunded and under-resourced in spite of successful adequacy litigation—a problem that is aggravated during times of recession, when many states face pressure to cut education budgets. This Note examines these issues using ...

Ua12/8 Wku Police - Annual Security Report, Wku Police

WKU Archives Records

This report is designed to provide students, potential students, parents, facility and staff with crime statistics and information on university services and crime prevention programs. These programs are designed to help inform our campus communities about safety practices that will help you reduce the risk of being a crime victim. I feel hat these lessons can give people information that they can carry with them beyond college and will help keep them safe for the rest of their lives.
