A Note On The Nonclass Aggregation Trilogy, Elizabeth Burch 2009 University of Georgia School of Law

A Note On The Nonclass Aggregation Trilogy, Elizabeth Burch

Elizabeth Chamblee Burch

Litigating Together: Social, Moral, and Legal Obligations I have posted a draft of the last in a trilogy of articles on nonclass aggregation (on SSRN) and thought I would provide a brief retrospective for the interested reader. The first article in the trilogy is Procedural Justice in Nonclass Aggregation, which explains in-depth the problems and risks presented by nonclass aggregation. It observes that systemic legitimacy and compliance with judicial decisions hinges on ensuring procedural justice, but that our current system for handling large-scale litigation fails to provide a number of key procedural-justice components including the preference for adversarial litigation, participation ...

Pedagogical Strategies For Teaching Moral Minimalism, Richard McGowan, Matthew McGowan, Garret McGowan 2009 Butler University

Pedagogical Strategies For Teaching Moral Minimalism, Richard Mcgowan, Matthew Mcgowan, Garret Mcgowan

Richard McGowan

College of BusinessIn 1986, Stephen Satris’s article, Student Relativism, meant to offer analysis of, and suggest some methods for dealing with, a quite particular and peculiar problem in teaching philosophy…I speak of the problem of student relativism. (Satris, 1986, p. 193) The problem has not gone away. However, psychological research suggests that the problem of relativism, a problem especially critical for teaching business ethics (or any other class in applied philosophy) is not insolvable. This paper, extending earlier work by R. McGowan, provides a brief account of research by Lawrence Kohlberg and William Perry on the structure of ...

Individualism Submerged: Climate Change And The Perils Of An Engineered Environment, Juliet Stumpf, Daniel Chepaitis, Andrea Panagakis 2009 Lewis & Clark Law School

Individualism Submerged: Climate Change And The Perils Of An Engineered Environment, Juliet Stumpf, Daniel Chepaitis, Andrea Panagakis

Juliet P Stumpf

Current approaches to addressing the negative impacts of climate change rely on collective capabilities. Welfare economics and contractualism, the two conventional perspectives that dominate the debate, support the pursuit of adaptive strategies such as large-scale geoengineering projects to reduce solar radiation or ameliorate sea-water inundation. In place of returning greenhouse gas emissions to natural levels, these approaches put the global climate system and compensation for losses resulting from climate change under the control of some group of fellow humans. In other words, they privilege mechanisms that increase each individual=s dependence on a collective decisionmaker and decrease the individual=s ...

Struck By Lightning: Walker V. Georgia And Louisiana's Proportionality Review Of Death Sentences, Robert Smith, Bidish Sarma, G. Cohen 2009 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Struck By Lightning: Walker V. Georgia And Louisiana's Proportionality Review Of Death Sentences, Robert Smith, Bidish Sarma, G. Cohen

Robert J Smith

The Louisiana Supreme Court conducts a comparative case proportionality review of each Louisiana death sentence to ensure that the punishment is not excessive considering both the crime and the criminal. The Court underscores that the federal constitution does not compel its practice. This article questions the Louisiana Supreme Court’s understanding of the Constitution and demonstrates that its proportionality review is constitutionally insufficient.

A Call To Action: Turning The Golden State Into A Golden Opportunity For International Arbitration, David Caron, Leah Harhay

David D. Caron

This Article highlights the challenges facing California in its efforts to become a center of international arbitration, provides examples of legislation for the California Bar and California State Legislature to consider, and suggests various avenues by which to bring California more fully into the international legal community. In particular, California unintentionally does not allow foreign attorneys to represent their clients in international arbitration conducted in California. Amidst both renewed efforts to make California a more likely seat of international arbitration and a legislative opening to revise this aspect of the law, change in the latter makes the former both possible ...

Spineless Wonders: How Listing Marine Invertebrates And Their Larvae Challenges The Us Endangered Species Act, Ryan Kelly 2009 University of California, Berkeley

Spineless Wonders: How Listing Marine Invertebrates And Their Larvae Challenges The Us Endangered Species Act, Ryan Kelly

Ryan P Kelly

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) recently determined that 82 species of corals may warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This decision highlights a disconnect between the ESA and the biology of many species to which it applies. In particular, marine invertebrates – ocean-dwelling species without a backbone – are an uneasy fit for the Act’s terms, largely as a result of their complex life cycles that can involve swimming larval stages. These species and their larvae challenge the federal agencies to fulfill the protective mandate of the ESA while minimizing disruption to the wide range of economic and ...

Women And Private Military And Security Companies, Ana Filipa Vrdoljak

Part I highlights how armed conflict, civil unrest, occupation and transition have a detrimental effect upon the lives of women with particular reference to safety, displacement, health and economic disadvantage. Part II provides a summary of ...

Guilty Until Proven Guilty: Rule 61 Of The Icty, Aleksandra Stankovic 2009 Cleveland State University

Guilty Until Proven Guilty: Rule 61 Of The Icty, Aleksandra Stankovic

Aleksandra B Stankovic

The following article critiques the pre-trial procedure of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, (ICTY) a topic of great significance at the moment, as the trial of Radovan Karadzic, one of the ICTY’s most well-known fugitives, has recently commenced in the Hague. This article argues that the ICTY’s Rule 61 procedure, which an absent Karadzic was subject to over ten years ago, severely degrades the defendant’s right to a fair trial in two ways. First, it effectively functions as a trial in absentia, contravening the ICTY statute and depriving the defendant of the right to ...
