Refractory Pain, Existential Suffering, And Palliative Care: Releasing An Unbearable Lightness Of Being, George P. Smith 2010 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Refractory Pain, Existential Suffering, And Palliative Care: Releasing An Unbearable Lightness Of Being, George P. Smith

George P Smith

Abstract

Since the beginning of the hospice movement in 1967, “total pain management” has been the declared goal of hospice care. Palliating the whole person’s physical, psycho-social, and spiritual states or conditions are central to managing pain which induces suffering. At the end-stage of life, an inextricable component of an ethics of adjusted care requires recognition of a fundamental right to avoid cruel and unusual suffering from terminal illness. This Article urges wider consideration and use of terminal sedation, or sedation until death, as efficacious palliative treatment and as a reasonable medical procedure in order to safeguard a “right ...


The Unconstitutionality Of Current Legal Barriers To Telemedicine In The United States: Analysis And Future Directions Of Its Relationship To National And International Health Care Reform, Deth Sao, Amar Gupta 2010 University of Arizona, James E. Rogers College of Law

The Unconstitutionality Of Current Legal Barriers To Telemedicine In The United States: Analysis And Future Directions Of Its Relationship To National And International Health Care Reform, Deth Sao, Amar Gupta

Deth Sao

The current health care crisis in the United States compels a consideration of the crucial role that telemedicine could play towards deploying a pragmatic solution. The nation faces rising costs and difficulties in access to and quality of medical services. Telemedicine can potentially help to overcome these challenges, as it can provide new cost-effective and efficient methods of delivering health care across geographic distances. The full benefits and future potential of telemedicine, however, are constrained by overlapping and often inconsistent and inadequate regulatory frameworks, as well as the repertoire of standards imposed by state governments and professional organizations. Proponents of ...


False Comfort And Impossible Promises: Uncertainty, Information Overload, And The Unitary Executive, Cynthia R. Farina 2010 Cornell Law School

False Comfort And Impossible Promises: Uncertainty, Information Overload, And The Unitary Executive, Cynthia R. Farina

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

The movement toward President-centered government is one of the most significant trends in modern American history. This trend has been accelerated by unitary executive theory, which provided constitutional and “good government” justifications for what political scientists have been calling the “personal” or “plebiscitary” presidency.

This essay draws on cognitive, social and political psychology to suggest that the extreme cognitive and psychological demands of modern civic life make us particularly susceptible to a political and constitutional ideology organized around a powerful and beneficent leader who champions our interests in the face of internal obstacles and external threats. The essay goes on ...

State Taxation: The Role Of Congress In Defining Nexus, Walter Hellerstein 2010 University of Georgia School of Law

State Taxation: The Role Of Congress In Defining Nexus, Walter Hellerstein

Presentations and Speeches

Testimony before the Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law Regulatory Reform and Oversight to "help us understand the implications of defining nexus."

Currently, States levy a tax on income earned or on a transaction occurring within its borders. The taxpayer is liable only if there exists a nexus or a connection between the State and the activities of the taxpayer. Some taxpayers have expressed concerns that current State tax policies are difficult to navigate, leading to unpredictable tax bills or incurring onerous paperwork. They contend that States utilize an overly broad tax nexus standard to impose unnecessary taxes and urge ...

Voluntary And Mandatory Skin In The Game: Understanding Outside Directors' Stock Holdings, Sanjai Bhagat 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Voluntary And Mandatory Skin In The Game: Understanding Outside Directors' Stock Holdings, Sanjai Bhagat

Sanjai Bhagat

We examine the determinants of equity ownership by outside directors as well as the relationship between ownership and operating performance. Unlike previous studies of equity ownership by directors, we use hand-collected data on firm-level policies requiring director ownership for S&P 500 firms during the years 2003 and 2005. Ownership requirements allow us to shed further light on the determinants of director holdings and to separate voluntary from mandatory holdings of directors. If ownership requirements reflect optimal ownership levels, they provide a useful identification tool in the examination of ownership-performance relationships. Our primary findings are as follows: ownership requirements are more common in larger firms. Ownership policies impact director holdings for the year 2005, while 2003 policies are unrelated to holdings; even after controlling for required holdings. Actual holdings are positively related to future operating performance.

The Winter Of Our Discontent: The Impact Of Copenhagen's Failure, Richard Faulk 2010 George Mason University School of Law

The Winter Of Our Discontent: The Impact Of Copenhagen's Failure, Richard Faulk

Richard Faulk

Far from treating climate change as a “universal” problem that transcends national boundaries, the Copenhagen conference devolved into a frustrating exercise in nationalism, where individual nations, or groups of nations, tried to satisfy their particular needs, as opposed to redressing global climate problems. Now that Copenhagen’s uproar has faded, it is appropriate to evaluate the consequences of the conference’s failure for American industry.


"A Great Dread Of Vulgarity": A Novel Perspective On Christopher Columbus Langdell And The Origins Of The Case Method In American Legal Education, Andrew Yaphe 2010 Stanford University

"A Great Dread Of Vulgarity": A Novel Perspective On Christopher Columbus Langdell And The Origins Of The Case Method In American Legal Education, Andrew Yaphe

Andrew Yaphe

When he introduced the case method of teaching to Harvard Law School in the 1870s, Christopher Columbus Langdell permanently changed the shape of American legal education. Despite the enormity of Langdell’s influence on legal pedagogy, we understand surprisingly little about what he intended to accomplish with his innovations. This Article offers an original interpretation of Langdell’s contributions to the way we think about the law and legal education. Reading Langdell in tandem with Gilbert Osmond, the central male character in Henry James’s 1881 novel The Portrait of a Lady, shows Langdell to be an example of a ...
