India’S Integrated Energy Policy: A Source Of Economic Nirvana Or Environmental Disaster?, Deepa Badrinarayana 2010 Chapman University

India’S Integrated Energy Policy: A Source Of Economic Nirvana Or Environmental Disaster?, Deepa Badrinarayana

Deepa Badrinarayana

India’s rapidly growing economy naturally demands increasing energy needs from the industrial scale down to the personal. Mindful of potential negative impacts of economic development, India is making efforts to encourage growth while preserving and protecting the environment and human rights. India’s Integrated Energy Policy sets out the roadmap for how the country plans to achieve the balance among development, environmental protection, citizens’ rights, energy security, and a host of other priorities and concerns. Though ambitious and broad in scope, the Policy may prove inadequate in mitigating environmental impacts of development, and thus inadequate in balancing India’s ...

Gay-Straight Alliances And Sanctioning Pretextual Discrimination Under The Equal Access Act, Jordan Woods 2010 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Gay-Straight Alliances And Sanctioning Pretextual Discrimination Under The Equal Access Act, Jordan Woods

Jordan Blair Woods

This article addresses manipulation of the federal Equal Access Act to allow prejudice and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students who wish to form gay-straight alliances (GSA) in public schools. By focusing on patterns of argumentation in the recent surge of GSA litigation, this article argues that the incorporation of the constitutionally stringent standard developed by the Supreme Court in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District into the Equal Access Act's safe harbor exceptions is necessary to prevent courts from discriminating against LGBTQ students and from giving effect to the private homophobic and ...


Hotness Discrimination: Appearance Discrimination As A Mirror For Reflecting On The Body Of Employment Discrimination Law, William R. Corbett 2010 Louisiana State University Law Center

Hotness Discrimination: Appearance Discrimination As A Mirror For Reflecting On The Body Of Employment Discrimination Law, William R. Corbett

William R. Corbett

Abstract for Hotness Discrimination: Appearance Discrimination as a Mirror for Reflecting on the Body of Employment Discrimination Law William R. Corbett This essay considers the topic of appearance-based employment discrimination. The essay introduces the topic by juxtaposing the “hot” story of the summer, the bank employee who claims that she was fired for “being too hot,” with Professor Deborah Rhode’s recently published book, The Beauty Bias: The Injustice of Appearance in Life and Law. In the essay, I argue that although appearance discrimination is one of the most common forms of discrimination in employment and other areas of life ...


Putting The Gene Back In The Bottle: Why California Needs Stronger Protection Of Genetic Privacy In The Wake Of Affordable Dna Testing, Farid Zakaria 2010 Santa Clara University School of Law

Putting The Gene Back In The Bottle: Why California Needs Stronger Protection Of Genetic Privacy In The Wake Of Affordable Dna Testing, Farid Zakaria

Farid Zakaria

In recent years, many “direct-to-consumer” genetic testing companies have started offering a DNA analysis service to the public. Based on the analysis of the DNA contained in saliva, these companies are able to inform the customer about his or her likelihood of having certain traits and of developing a number of diseases. Given the sensitive nature of this kind of information, this paper considers whether it is sufficiently protected under the current legal and regulatory framework. Specifically, the paper studies whether current federal, state, and common law that protects medical and private information also guarantees the privacy of genetic information ...


The Inadequate Legislative Response To E-Signatures, Jay Forder 2010 Bond University

The Inadequate Legislative Response To E-Signatures, Jay Forder

Jay Forder

This article examines the two most influential international initiatives on electronic signatures (UNCITRAL’s 1996 Model Law on Electronic Commerce and the 1999 EU Electronic Signature Directive). It considers whether the legislative approaches in Australia and the United Kingdom based on these initiatives are helpful in deciding whether lower level signature methods such as simple email messages are likely to satisfy a legal requirement for a signature. The conclusion reached is that they are unhelpful. The article goes on to consider whether legislative amendments based on UNCITRAL’s 2001 Model Law on Electronic Signatures or the 2005 UN Convention on ...

Sex Trafficking Of Women For The Production Of Pornography, Donna M. Hughes Dr. 2010 University of Rhode Island

Sex Trafficking Of Women For The Production Of Pornography, Donna M. Hughes Dr.

Donna M. Hughes

Women used in the production of commercial pornography in the U.S. are often subjected to violence and coercion during filming. Often they protest and try to stop the filming or back-out before filming begins. Their protests are ignored or they are pressured by their agent or the director to continue. Their experiences of coercion and trickery often meet the criteria for sex trafficking.

De Las Superintendencias A Las Agencias Regulatorias Independientes En Chile: Aspectos Constitucionales Y De Diseño Regulatorio, Sergio Verdugo Sverdugor@Udd.Cl, José Francisco García

Sergio Verdugo R.

Los autores proponen algunos lineamientos de reforma para pasar desde el actual modelo de superintendencias hacia uno de agencias regulatorias independientes. Para ello revisan la experiencia norteamericana de agencias regulatorias independientes (independent agencies), las que no sólo son antecedentes de nuestro esquema de superintendencias –aunque “mal importadas”–, sino porque dicha experiencia puede entregar algunas luces respecto de tres aspectos fundamentales hasta ahora débilmente tratados por la doctrina chilena: estatus constitucional, autonomía política y estándares de revisión judicial del accionar de estos entes administrativos. Posteriormente realizan un breve diagnóstico crítico acerca de los defectos constitucionales y de diseño de las superintendencias ...


¿Quién Tiene Mayor Necesidad De Pagar Impuestos?: Un Esbozo Crítico Desde La Perspectiva De Un No-Especialista, Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco 2010 Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú

¿Quién Tiene Mayor Necesidad De Pagar Impuestos?: Un Esbozo Crítico Desde La Perspectiva De Un No-Especialista, Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco

Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco

El objetivo de la presente nota es muy sencillo: evidenciar que si bien la mayoría de los ciudadanos tenemos un rechazo al pago de tributos y en particular de impuestos, somos más dependientes de ellos de lo que se suele percibir. Empero, para lograr tal constatación debemos modificar la perspectiva bajo la que se analiza una noción casi institucional como la capacidad contributiva. Todo ello, cabe resaltar, es propuesto sólo con la libertad que nuestra calidad de no-especialistas nos brinda.

United States Non-Ratification Of The United Nations Convention On The Law Of The Sea Treaty Arguments Pro And Con: Is The United States Moving Toward An Isolationist Foreign Policy?, Tracy L. Woodard 2010 Barry University School of Law

United States Non-Ratification Of The United Nations Convention On The Law Of The Sea Treaty Arguments Pro And Con: Is The United States Moving Toward An Isolationist Foreign Policy?, Tracy L. Woodard

Tracy L. Woodard

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea Treaty officially went into effect in 1994. Since 1994, the treaty has silently sat in the halls of the Senate poised for Senate ratification. Despite the United States having been the architect of its inception, bipartisan Presidential support and approval from two Senate Foreign Relations Committees, the treaty has yet to come before the Senate for debate for its ratification. With many possible contributing political factors, the author presupposes that one crucial element at work may be America’s isolationist tendencies of its past which is echoed in the rhetoric ...
