Defining Death: Why All Fifty States Should Adopt The Uniform Definition Of Death Act With A Religious Exception, Rachel Delaney 2010 Maquette University

Defining Death: Why All Fifty States Should Adopt The Uniform Definition Of Death Act With A Religious Exception, Rachel Delaney

Rachel Delaney

This article addresses the tension between the secular, American definition of death and the Jewish law definition of death. While the definition of death has been debated separately in both Jewish and American legal scholarship, the secular and Jewish law definitions of death have not been thoroughly analyzed in relation to one another. The secular definition of death—irreversible cessation of all functions of the entire brain—conflicts with the Jewish law definition of death—irreversible cessation of respiration. The conflict presents a First Amendment Free Exercise Clause challenge because state laws with strict secular definitions of death preclude Orthodox ...


Teaching Professional Ethics To Lawyers And Mediators Using Active Learning Techniques, Paula M. Young 2010 Appalachian School of Law

Teaching Professional Ethics To Lawyers And Mediators Using Active Learning Techniques, Paula M. Young

Paula M. Young Prof.

The article discusses the barriers that exist to learning about professional ethics in the law school environment. It next considers possible approaches to teaching legal and mediation ethics to new and experienced practitioners. I found only one article on techniques for teaching mediation ethics. Otherwise, mediation instructors cover the topic from time to time at the major dispute resolution conferences. In the face of this gap in the literature, I have considered by analogy the articles about active learning in law school courses designed to teach legal and judicial ethics. The article surveys advanced and innovative techniques for teaching legal ...


It Takes Two To Tango, And To Mediate: Legal Cultural And Other Factors Influencing United States And Latin American Lawyers' Resistance To Mediating Commercial Disputes, Don Peters 2010 University of Florida

It Takes Two To Tango, And To Mediate: Legal Cultural And Other Factors Influencing United States And Latin American Lawyers' Resistance To Mediating Commercial Disputes, Don Peters

Don Peters

This article examines legal cultural and other factors influencing the resistance displayed by United States and Latin American lawyers to mediating commercial disputes. After surveying current contexts in which commercial mediation occurs in the United States and Latin American countries and summarizing data regarding commercial actors’ knowledge concerning the benefits of mediating, it analyzes the relatively infrequent use of mediation despite knowledge of its potential advantages over adjudicating. Focusing on lawyers, the article next explores factors that influence U.S. and Latin American lawyers when they converse with commercial clients about selecting dispute resolution methods. Analyzing similarities arising from universal ...


Bloomin' Buzzin' Confusion: Facts And Meaning In Adjudication And Mediation, Robert Rubinson 2010 University of Baltimore School of Law

Bloomin' Buzzin' Confusion: Facts And Meaning In Adjudication And Mediation, Robert Rubinson

Robert Rubinson

Bloomin’ Buzzin’ Confusion: Facts and Meaning In Adjudication and Mediation ABSTRACT Any methodology, model, or cognitive process must exclude more than it includes in order to make sense of experience. To do otherwise would leave only, in the words of William James, a “bloomin’ buzzin’ confusion.” Mediation and adjudication go about the process of developing meaning from circumstance in fundamentally different ways. Rather than focusing on what each process identifies as important, the article takes the opposite perspective and focuses on what each process excludes. In doing so, the article explores how adjudication identifies relevant “facts” through a specific mechanism ...

Climate Change, Forests And Federalism: Seeing The Treaty For The Trees, Blake Hudson 2010 Stetson University College of Law

Climate Change, Forests And Federalism: Seeing The Treaty For The Trees, Blake Hudson

Blake Hudson

Despite numerous attempts over the past two decades – including most recently at the Copenhagen climate discussions in late 2009 – international forest and climate negotiations have failed to produce a legally binding treaty addressing global forest management activities. This failure is due in large part to a lack of U.S. leadership. Though participation of the U.S. in ongoing forest and climate negotiations is essential, the potential limiting effects of federalism on the U.S.’s treaty power in the area of forest management has not been fully explored. Such an exploration is necessary given the debate among constitutional law ...

ABSTRACT

“The Skepticism of Critical Legal Studies and the Function of Moral Discourse”

This article on the philosophy of law aims to expound and evaluate the jurisprudential movement known as Critical Legal Studies – now that the passage of some time allows us to take a less polemical look at what was regarded as a very radical movement. My exposition of CLS organizes its now somewhat familiar concepts (legal indeterminacy, fundamental contradiction, hierarchy, the attack on the public/private distinction) as all directed to one goal: allowing us to see our responsibility for ...


Edmund Burke, John Whyte And Themes In Canadian Constitutional Culture, David Schneiderman 2010 Georgetown University Law Center

Edmund Burke, John Whyte And Themes In Canadian Constitutional Culture, David Schneiderman

David Schneiderman

John Whyte, the author observes, is committed to the idea that there are moral foundations to Canada's constitutional order and that these foundations are derived from liberal principles. This paper compares Whyte's liberal and organicist constitutionalism to that of the eighteenth century British political thinker, Edmund Burke. Three themes are predominant in Whyte's work: those of liberty and security, unity and diversity, and constitutional change. Drawing out these themes in both Whyte's and Burke's constitutional thought, the author argues that Whyte has a sound historical basis for deriving Canadian constitutional practices from liberal principles ordinarily ...

Rethinking Children As Property, Kevin Maillard 2010 Syracuse University

Rethinking Children As Property, Kevin Maillard

Kevin Noble Maillard

Despite the collective view in law and social practice that it is intrinsically taboo to consider human beings as chattel, the law persists in treating children as property. Applying principles of property, this Article examines paternity disputes to explain and critique the law’s view of children as property of their parents. As evidenced in these conflicts, I demonstrate that legal paternity exposes a rhetoric of ownership, possession, and exchange. The law presumes that a child born to a married woman is fathered by her husband, even when irrefutable proof exists that another man fathered the child. Attempts by the ...
