Sports Betting And European Law, Marios Papaloukas 2009 University of Peloponnese

Sports Betting And European Law, Marios Papaloukas

Marios Papaloukas

As early as 1992 the European Court of Justice ruled that the principle of proportionality will apply in order to examine whether a restrictive measure, imposed by a member state in order to regulate gambling, is valid. As a result member states monopolies and oligopolies concerning gambling and sports betting will have to comply with these new developments.


Rating Agencies: Facilitators Of Predatory Lending In The Subprime Market, David J. Reiss 2009 Brooklyn Law School

Rating Agencies: Facilitators Of Predatory Lending In The Subprime Market, David J. Reiss

David J Reiss

This book chapter explores how the three largest rating agencies, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investor Service and Fitch Ratings, exploited their privileged regulatory status to profit from the booming subprime mortgage market at the expense of homeowners. These rating agencies boosted their own bottom lines and assisted predatory lenders by effectively vetoing state consumer protection initiatives. While regulators have identified enhanced investor protection regulation of credit rating agencies as a priority, future regulation must ensure that the systemic biases of the rating agency industry are no longer permitted to trump legitimate state consumer protection initiatives.

The Quran And The Constitution, Ali Khan 2009 Washburn University

The Quran And The Constitution, Ali Khan

Ali Khan

The Quran and the Constitution are mutually supportive supreme texts; one does not negate the other. Numerous forms of government, cultural traditions, and economic systems are compatible with both supreme texts. Muslim nations are free to promulgate specific constitutions that reflect their social, political, and economic preferences rooted in history and culture. The specific constitution must reflect the conscience of the nation, for constitutions that fail to do so are vulnerable to amendment, even revolutionary replacement. Because the human condition is constantly evolving, the Quran, though a permanent divine text immune to alteration or amendment, is amenable to the evolutionary ...

Failure Is Not An Option: An Essay On What Legal Educators Can Learn From Nasa's Signature Pedagogies To Improve Student Outcomes, Christine N. Coughlin, Lisa T. McElroy 2009 Drexel University

Failure Is Not An Option: An Essay On What Legal Educators Can Learn From Nasa's Signature Pedagogies To Improve Student Outcomes, Christine N. Coughlin, Lisa T. Mcelroy

Christine Nero Coughlin

The story of the Apollo 13 mission is just one of the inspirational stories from the space program. it was an age of exploration, of pushing boundaries, of discovering new ways of doing things. In this essay, we examine three of NASA's signature pedagogies -- simulation, teamwork, and optimism--and discuss how those practices can be used effectively in legal education to prepare students for the realities of practice.


Reuniting Human Rights And Bioethics To Address End-Of-Life Medical Futility Disputes, Thaddeus M. Pope 2009 Mitchell Hamline School of Law

Reuniting Human Rights And Bioethics To Address End-Of-Life Medical Futility Disputes, Thaddeus M. Pope

Thaddeus Mason Pope

The fields of bioethics and human rights should be reunited and harmonized. Each can benefit from the other. Human rights can supply a language and framework to articulate arguments mooted and invisible in bioethics vocabulary. Bioethics has, for too long, focused on a too-narrow range of high-technology issues affecting few people. Human rights’ focus on globalization and public health can be used to beneficially reorient bioethics to address broader issues. Similarly, bioethics can benefit human rights. While end-of-life issues have been thoroughly examined in the bioethics world, they have just started coming onto the human rights agenda. Human rights law ...


The Three Errors: Pathways To False Confession And Wrongful Conviction, Richard A. Leo, Steven A. Drizin 2009 University of San Francisco

The Three Errors: Pathways To False Confession And Wrongful Conviction, Richard A. Leo, Steven A. Drizin

Richard A. Leo

Research has demonstrated that false confessors whose cases are not dismissed before trial are often convicted despite their innocence. In order to prevent such wrongful convictions, criminal justice officials must better understand the role that false confessions play in creating and perpetuating miscarriages of justice. This chapter examines police-induced false confessions and analyzes three sequential errors that occur in the social production of every false confession: investigators first misclassify an innocent person as guilty; they next subject him to a guilt-presumptive, accusatory interrogation that invariably involves lies about evidence and often the repeated use of implicit and/or explicit promises ...

“Habíase una vez un hombre que había perdido a su mujer, y una mujer a quien se le había muerto el marido. El hombre tenía una hija, y la mujer, otra. Las muchachas se conocían y salían de paseo juntas; Un día, la mujer le dijo a la hija del viudo: Di a tu padre que me gustaría casarme con él…Y se celebró la boda...”

Infiltrating American Intelligence-Difficulties Inherent In The Congressional Oversight Of Intelligence And The Joint Committee Model, Patrick J. Donaldson 2009 American University, Washington College of Law

Infiltrating American Intelligence-Difficulties Inherent In The Congressional Oversight Of Intelligence And The Joint Committee Model, Patrick J. Donaldson

Patrick J. Donaldson

The structure of intelligence oversight has been debated recently as the need is seen to grow. The current structure of intelligence oversight has been rendered ineffective by partisanship and lack of area expertise. Reform of congressional oversight has proven itself necessary. There have been numerous and varied proposals on how to reform the intelligence community in recent years. However, the 9/11 Commission’s use of a single, joint committee like the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy would not function as effectively as similar examples in the past. Regardless, every proposal of the 9/11 Commission has been addressed in ...

Death, Ineligibility And Habeas Corpus, Lee B. Kovarsky 2009 University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Death, Ineligibility And Habeas Corpus, Lee B. Kovarsky

Lee Kovarsky

I examine the interaction between what I call 'death ineligibility' challenges and the habeas writ. A death ineligibility claim alleges that a criminally-confined capital prisoner belongs to a category of offenders for which the Eighth Amendment forbids execution. By contrast, a 'crime innocence' claim alleges that, colloquially speaking, a capital prisoner 'wasn’t there, and didn’t do it.' In the last eight years, the Supreme Court has identified several new ineligibility categories, including mentally retarded offenders. Configured primarily to address crime innocence and procedural challenges, however, modern habeas law is poorly equipped to accommodate ineligibility claims. Death Ineligibility traces ...

El Liberalismo Neoclásico , El Libre Mercado Y Sus Críticos, Carmen G. Gonzalez, Colin Crawford, Daniel Bonilla Maldonado

Carmen G. Gonzalez

The articles collected in this volume critically examine the hegemony of market fundamentalism in law, politics, and social theory.

The authors represent several disciplines (law, economics, anthropology) and various countries (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, the United States, and Venezuela). The topics covered include free trade agreements, Argentina's financial crisis, deregulation in Brazil, the judicial enforcement of economic and social rights, climate change, and the impact of trade liberalization on violence against women. The articles were ...


China In Latin America: Law, Economics, And Sustainable Development, Carmen G. Gonzalez 2009 Seattle University

China In Latin America: Law, Economics, And Sustainable Development, Carmen G. Gonzalez

Carmen G. Gonzalez

The growing economic and political ties between China and Latin America have sparked controversy among scholars, pundits, and policy-makers. Some scholars contend that China is a rising imperial power scouring the globe for natural resources, exploiting less powerful nations, and rejecting international environmental agreements that would curb its profligate consumption of the world’s natural resources. Others applaud China’s unorthodox development strategies and portray China as a successful model for developing countries and as a welcome counterweight to U.S. economic and political hegemony. This paper interrogates the competing narratives about China’s growing influence in Latin America and ...


China En América Latina: Derecho, Economía Y Desarrollo Sostenible, Carmen G. Gonzalez 2009 Seattle University

China En América Latina: Derecho, Economía Y Desarrollo Sostenible, Carmen G. Gonzalez

Carmen G. Gonzalez

Los crecientes vínculos económicos y políticos entre China y América Latina han desatado controversias entre académicos, eruditos en la materia, y personas encargadas de elaborar políticas. Algunos académicos afirman que China es una potencia imperial emergente, comprometida en la lucha por obtener los recursos del mundo en desarrollo, y una amenaza competitiva para América Latina. Otros aplauden las estrategias de desarrollo chinas, pragmáticas y poco ortodoxas, y las describen como un modelo exitoso para los países en desarrollo. El presente artículo pone en duda las narratives predominantes sobre la cresciente influencia de China en América Latina, e interroga las implicaciones ...
