Neuroscience Evidence In Forensic Contexts: Ethical Concerns, Stephen J. Morse 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Neuroscience Evidence In Forensic Contexts: Ethical Concerns, Stephen J. Morse

Faculty Scholarship

This is a chapter in a volume, Ethics Dilemmas in Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology Practice, edited by Ezra E. H. Griffith, M.D. and to be published by Columbia University Press. The chapter addresses whether the use of new neuroscience techniques, especially non-invasive functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and the data from studies employing them raise new ethical issues for forensic psychiatrists and psychologists. The implicit thesis throughout is that if the legal questions, the limits of the new techniques and the relevance of neuroscience to law are properly understood, no new ethical issues are raised. A major ethical lapse ...

Cas. N° 1027-2016-Ica Efectos De La Cosa Juzgada Civil En El Proceso Penal.Pdf, Javier Wilfredo Vega Cisneros 2017 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos

Cas. N° 1027-2016-Ica Efectos De La Cosa Juzgada Civil En El Proceso Penal.Pdf, Javier Wilfredo Vega Cisneros

Javier Wilfredo Vega Cisneros

Señala la Corte Suprema que si un hecho ha sido declarado lícito por la jurisdicción civil, entonces, no puede constituirse un cargo penal sobre un hecho cuya licitud ya fue decidida por la jurisdicción civil. La excepción de cosa juzgada debe ser fundada en este caso [art. 79 del CP y art. 6.1.c CPP de 2004].
En este caso, la cosa juzgada civil, por expreso mandato legal -del CP específicamente-, no solo se refiere a las mismas partes de un eventual proceso penal, sino que se extiende, por excepción, erga omnes, a sujetos no litigantes (extensión ultra partes ...


Textualism And Originalism In Constitutional Interpretation, John M. Greabe 2017 University of New Hampshire School of Law

Textualism And Originalism In Constitutional Interpretation, John M. Greabe

Legal Scholarship

[Excerpt] "In a 2016 lecture at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Judge Neil Gorsuch warmly praised former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's approach to constitutional interpretation. Because President Trump has nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court, it is important to understand the approach Judge Gorsuch favors."


Nuisance Law Versus Tort Law When Transaction Costs Are High. A Law And Economics Perspective Of The Italian Legal System, enrico baffi, dario nardi 2017 Università Guglielmo Marconi

Nuisance Law Versus Tort Law When Transaction Costs Are High. A Law And Economics Perspective Of The Italian Legal System, Enrico Baffi, Dario Nardi

enrico baffi

The aim of this paper is to formulate an economic explanation for the presence in the
Italian legal system of two distinct categories of liability rules, represented by Nuisance Law and
Tort Law. The conclusions, which are based on the Italian legal system, can easily be extended to
other legal systems. More precisely, we will examine in detail aspects of Nuisance Law with
particular reference to situations in which the high transaction costs prevent negotiation between
the injurer and the victim. From the study carried out it appears that limiting indemnity in nuisance
cases can be efficient in that it ...


New Hampshire Juvenile Sex Trafficking Survivor Urges Representatives To Vote Against Decriminalized Prostitution, Darlene Pawlik, Donna M. Hughes Dr. 2017 University of Rhode Island

New Hampshire Juvenile Sex Trafficking Survivor Urges Representatives To Vote Against Decriminalized Prostitution, Darlene Pawlik, Donna M. Hughes Dr.

Donna M. Hughes

I am a juvenile sex trafficking survivor. I was sold here in New Hampshire and other states as well. This is happening now too. Even with a law against prostitution, the more egregious elements are prevalent. Trafficking is not separate from prostitution, it is just the darker side of the very same coin. 


Exploring The Commercialized Arms Race Metaphor, Alfred Mathewson 2017 Selected Works

Exploring The Commercialized Arms Race Metaphor, Alfred Mathewson

Alfred Mathewson

Reversing Field invites students, professionals, and enthusiasts of sport – whether law, management and marketing, or the game itself – to explore the legal issues and regulations surrounding collegiate and professional athletics in the United States. This theoretical and methodological interrogation of sports law openly addresses race, labor, gender, and the commercialization of sports, while offering solutions to the disruptions that threaten its very foundation during an era of increased media scrutiny and consumerism. In over thirty chapters, academics, practitioners, and critics vigorously confront and debate matters such as the Arms Race, gender bias, racism, the Rooney Rule, and steroid use, offering ...


The Empty Idea Of “Equality Of Creditors”, David A. Skeel Jr. 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

The Empty Idea Of “Equality Of Creditors”, David A. Skeel Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

For two hundred years, the equality of creditors norm—the idea that similarly situated creditors should be treated similarly—has been widely viewed as the most important principle in American bankruptcy law, rivaled only by our commitment to a fresh start for honest but unfortunate debtors. I argue in this Article that the accolades are misplaced. Although the equality norm once was a rough proxy for legitimate concerns, such as curbing self-dealing, it no longer plays this role. Nor does it serve any other beneficial purpose.

Part I of this Article traces the historical emergence and evolution of the equality ...


'Listen To What You Say': Rwanda’S Postgenocide Language Policies, Lynne Tirrell 2017 University of Massachusetts Boston

'Listen To What You Say': Rwanda’S Postgenocide Language Policies, Lynne Tirrell

Lynne Tirrell

Freedom of expression is considered a basic human right, and yet most countries have restrictions on speech they deem harmful. Following the genocide of the Tutsi, Rwanda passed a constitution (2003) and laws against hate speech and other forms of divisionist language (2008, 2013). Understanding how language shaped “recognition harms” that both constitute and fuel genocide also helps account for political decisions to limit “divisionist” discourse. When we speak, we make expressive commitments, which are commitments to the viability and value of ways of speaking. This article explores reasons a society would decide to say, “We don’t talk that ...


Criminal: Journalistic Rigour, Gothic Tales And Philosophical Heft, Jason Loviglio 2017 University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Criminal: Journalistic Rigour, Gothic Tales And Philosophical Heft, Jason Loviglio

RadioDoc Review

Like many of the shows in PRX’s Radiotopia catalogue of podcasts, Criminal’s sensibility and sound partake of the US public radio formula made famous by This American Life: journalistic rigour and gothic yarns. The show tells “stories of people who’ve done wrong, been wronged, or got caught somewhere in the middle”. But it’s moved beyond mere crime journalism to something that aspires to a bit more philosophical heft. Most of the stories unspool through the elegant co-narration between host Phoebe Judge and each episode’s central protagonist. The effect is almost always seamless, thanks to the ...


The Contractual Liability Function: Efficient Breach Theory Or Best Risk Bearer Theory? The Two Theories Tested By The Commercial Impracticability Doctrine In The Italian Legal System, enrico baffi, dario nardi 2017 Università Guglielmo Marconi

The Contractual Liability Function: Efficient Breach Theory Or Best Risk Bearer Theory? The Two Theories Tested By The Commercial Impracticability Doctrine In The Italian Legal System, Enrico Baffi, Dario Nardi

enrico baffi

The need to introduce regulatory solutions for contractual balance when faced with occurrences that could affect the mutual advantage for the contractual parties, seems to be a major problem for which legal systems have always tried to provide solutions. With specific reference to the Italian legal system, it is important to note how the legislator, through Article 1467 of the Italian Civil Code, established the right for periodical or executory contracts to request that the contract be terminated for the party for whom the performance had become too expensive following unforeseeable, extraordinary events.
The legislator acknowledged this, specifying that termination ...


Introduction: Lynching, Incarceration’S Cousin: From Till To Trayvon, Barbara Lewis 2017 University of Massachusetts Boston

Introduction: Lynching, Incarceration’S Cousin: From Till To Trayvon, Barbara Lewis

Barbara Lewis

The wholesale criminalizing of the black male has been much in the news, put there by the Trayvon Martin case and the Florida verdict. (Incidentally, even though we don’t often think of it, Florida was where the first African slaves were installed in America, back in the 1500s in the city of St. Augustine.) As an academic, which, loosely translated means that I often bury my head between the covers of a book trying to figure out one thing or another, I am thought of as someone who is cautious and circumspect in what I think and write, but ...
