Fostering Futures In Virginia: Why Is It Needed And What Does It Add To Existing Programs?, Karen E. Dottore

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

This article addresses the large population of foster children over the age of 13 who have the same need for stable outcomes as younger foster children. Older foster children face a greater challenge in achieving a stable outcome because of their age. With this challenge comes a greater likelihood of homelessness and involvement in the criminal justice system. This article examines the various programs in Virginia designed to address the challenges faced by older foster children, and particularly, a new program called Fostering Futures, which provides greater support specifically to older foster children.

Impact Of 2001 - 2016 Supreme Court Establishment Clause Cases, Nicole Cumming 2018 Western Michigan University

Impact Of 2001 - 2016 Supreme Court Establishment Clause Cases, Nicole Cumming

Honors Theses

This study will look at United States Supreme Court Establishment Clause cases from 2001-2016. During those 16 years, the Court decided 1,276 cases. Only 10 of those cases dealt with the establishment clause.

At an absolute minimum, the Establishment Clause was intended to prohibit the federal government from declaring and financially supporting a national religion, which existed in many other countries at the time of America's founding. This idea has become vital to the values Americans hold dear. Throughout history, religious freedom and tolerance have been celebrated, and most of that is due to the Establishment Clause. However ...

What Is The Right To Privacy?, Andrei Marmor 2018 USC Gould School of Law

What Is The Right To Privacy?, Andrei Marmor

Andrei Marmor

A philosophical account of the right to privacy should explain what is the distinct interest that the right is there to protect, what it takes to secure it, and what would count as a violation of the right. In this paper I argue that the right to privacy is grounded on people’s interest in having a reasonable measure of control over ways in which they present themselves (and what is theirs) to others; I argue that in order to secure this kind of interest we need to have a reasonably secure and predictable environment about the flow of information ...

The Criminalization Of The Immigration System: The Dehumanizing Impact Of Calling A Person "Illegal", Ashley R. Shapiro

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

In the context of immigration, words matter. The increasingly used term “criminal alien” is not only used as an adjective to define a noncitizen who has committed a crime, but it also acts as a descrip- tion of his or her personhood. The use of the term “illegals,” which is the shortened version of “illegal alien,” is pervasive in the media as well as policy debate. In Part I, this paper discusses the evolution of the immigration system in the United States from a discretionary and humanitarian system to a criminalized process. In Part II, this paper examines the convergence ...
