Law In The Time Of Covid-19: Legal Considerations Amidst A Growing Crisis, Justice Tecson

GGU Law Review Blog

COVID-19 has resulted in the destabilization of several aspects of human society, which may potentially cause an influx in litigation in certain practice areas such as employment, healthcare, and contract law. Although the legal effects of the pandemic have yet to be seen in their entirety, having knowledge of the potential legal issues better prepares individuals and businesses in dealing with this increased risk of litigation and could possibly help mitigate the circumstances caused by this viral, unprecedented attack on humanity.

When Does A Major Outbreak Become A Public Health Emergency Of International Concern?, David N. Durrheim, Lawrence O. Gostin, Keymanthri Moodley 2020 School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Newcastle, Callaghan

When Does A Major Outbreak Become A Public Health Emergency Of International Concern?, David N. Durrheim, Lawrence O. Gostin, Keymanthri Moodley

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

The process of determining whether a Public Health Emergencies of International Concern (PHEIC) exists and should be declared has drawn increasing criticism over the past few years with allegations that it is more political than technical. Delaying declaration, where appropriate, means that the opportunity of garnering international solidarity and necessary resources in the early phases of epidemics, when public health measures may be more effective, is lost. A reform agenda aimed at enhancing WHO/Emergency Committee transparency and objectivity for the PHEIC declaration process is required.

Symposium: Pandemics And The Constitution: Tiered Scrutiny In A Pandemic, Jeffrey D. Jackson

ConLawNOW

During this spring of COVID-19, Americans are facing numerous state and local government-imposed restrictions that would have seemed implausible a few short months ago. While many of these restrictions seem to be unquestionably warranted, there have been others that have the potential to negatively impact fundamental rights. From abortion restrictions to gun control, these actions threaten liberty in the name of police powers. During this time of crisis, there is a need for courts to be especially vigilant. Throughout the nation’s history, the concept of emergency power has been used to justify restrictions on the rights of Americans, with ...

Operationalizing Reverse Bayesiansim, Surajeet Chakravarty, David Kelsey, Joshua C. Teitelbaum 2020 University of Exeter

Operationalizing Reverse Bayesiansim, Surajeet Chakravarty, David Kelsey, Joshua C. Teitelbaum

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Karni and Vierø (2013) propose a model of belief revision under growing awareness—reverse Bayesianism—which posits that as a person becomes aware of new acts, consequences, or act-consequence links, she revises her beliefs over an expanded state space in a way that preserves the relative likelihoods of events in the original state space. A key limitation of the model is that reverse Bayesianism alone does not fully determine the revised probability distribution. We provide an assumption—act independence—that imposes additional restrictions on reverse Bayesian belief revision. We show that under act independence, knowledge of the probabilities of new ...

Playing By Pinochet’S Rules: Legal And Constitutional Impediments To Progressive Immigration Reform In Chile, William Patrick Schmidt 2020 Fordham University

Playing By Pinochet’S Rules: Legal And Constitutional Impediments To Progressive Immigration Reform In Chile, William Patrick Schmidt

Senior Theses

This thesis explores the political context of Chile’s current immigration laws and policies, tracing changes through the dictatorship of the late 20th century, the transition to democracy in 1991, and up through the current administration. Using the backdrop of the Venezuelan migrant crisis, focus is given to specific stipulations of current policies and the impact they have on arriving migrants. A comparison with neighboring Argentina highlights key differences in policy reactions and is used to argue that a new constitution is needed in Chile in order to effectively respond to the arrival of over 250,000 Venezuelan migrants. Lastly ...
