Cosmopolitanism And Constitutional Self-Government, Vlad F. Perju 2011 Boston College Law School

Cosmopolitanism And Constitutional Self-Government, Vlad F. Perju

Vlad Perju

This paper, which was selected for presentation at the 2010 Yale/Stanford Junior Faculty Forum, articulates the theoretical steps by which self-government in a free community of equals leads constitutional analysis outside the boundaries of that political community. Openness to the experiences in self-government of other peoples is commonly assumed to undermine political legitimacy by loosing citizens’ control over their political fate. But is it possible that such openness might in fact render that control more effective? Could it actually enhance political and constitutional legitimacy? This paper articulates and defends the following claims: 1) The legitimacy of a political order ...

Reconsidering Spousal Privileges After Crawford, R. Michael Cassidy 2011 Boston College Law School

Reconsidering Spousal Privileges After Crawford, R. Michael Cassidy

R. Michael Cassidy

In this article the author explores how domestic violence prevention efforts have been adversely impacted by the Supreme Court’s new “testimonial” approach to the confrontation clause. Examining the Court’s trilogy of cases from Crawford to Davis and Hammon, the author argues that the introduction of certain forms of hearsay in criminal cases has been drastically limited by the court’s new originalist approach to the Sixth Amendment. The author explains how state spousal privilege statutes often present a significant barrier to obtaining live testimony from victims of domestic violence. The author then argues that state legislatures should reconsider ...

Republicanos Ou Publicanos? A Constituição De 1911 E A Concretização Da Ii República, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Republicanos Ou Publicanos? A Constituição De 1911 E A Concretização Da Ii República, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Grande parte das críticas à I República são do mesmo tipo das que se fazem à que chamam III, mas que é a nossa actual II República (o Estado Novo não foi República). Contudo, houve e há coisas semelhantes e coisas diferentes entre ambas. Os principais erros e desvios da I República conseguiram ser corrigidos na II. Criou-se na nossa, a exemplo da I, um grave problema, a ser resolvido: a II República, tal como a I esteve, encontra-se hoje depauperada nas suas energias morais. E sem ética republicana, não há república que subsista. Urge criar uma elite abnegada (não ...


Psicopatologia E Poder. Uma Lição De "Mentes Perigosas", Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Psicopatologia E Poder. Uma Lição De "Mentes Perigosas", Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Por vezes, incomoda-se até ao insuportável o cidadão, ou o trabalhador, ou o morador comum, com as atitudes de um político, de um patrão ou de um capataz, ou mesmo de um colega, de um autarca, enfim, de uma autoridade ou de um agente da autoridade. Primeiro, são comportamentos suaves e calculistas antes de obter o poder e, uma vez com ele, passam a ver-se práticas autoritariamente aberrantes, despóticas, e até criminosas. Analisamos muitas vezes essas práticas como "mau feitio", "má disposição", e, se formos magnânimos, como o preço da eficiência. Mas em que medida o "mau carácter" não é ...


Bush V. Gore: The Worst (Or At Least Second-To-The-Worst) Supreme Court Decision Ever, Mark S. Brodin 2011 Boston College Law School

Bush V. Gore: The Worst (Or At Least Second-To-The-Worst) Supreme Court Decision Ever, Mark S. Brodin

Mark S. Brodin

In the stiff competition for worst Supreme Court decision ever, two candidates stand heads above the others for the simple reason that they precipitated actual fighting wars in their times. By holding that slaves, as mere chattels, could not sue in court and could never be American citizens, and further invalidating the Missouri Compromise, which had prohibited slavery in new territories, Dred Scott v. Sanford charted the course to secession and Civil War four years later. By disenfranchising Florida voters and thereby appointing popular-vote loser George W. Bush as President, Bush v. Gore set in motion events which would lead ...


Unanswered Questions Of A Minority People In International Law: A Comparative Study Between Southern Cameroons & South Sudan, Bernard Sama Mr 2011 Auckland University

Unanswered Questions Of A Minority People In International Law: A Comparative Study Between Southern Cameroons & South Sudan, Bernard Sama Mr

Bernard Sama

The month July of 2011 marked the birth of another nation in the World. The distressful journey of a minority people under the watchful eyes of the international community finally paid off with a new nation called the South Sudan . As I watched the South Sudanese celebrate independence on 9 July 2011, I was filled with joy as though they have finally landed. On a promising note, I read the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon saying “[t]ogether, we welcome the Republic of South Sudan to the community of nations. Together, we affirm our commitment to helping it meet its ...

Scratching The Surface: Does New York's Public Trust Law Prevent Subsurface Access To Natural Gas Below Parkland In The Marcellus Shale?, Susan J. Kraham, Lisa K. Perfetto

Buffalo Environmental Law Journal

The origins of the public trust doctrine ma} be traced back to Roman laiw. The Institutes qf Justinian state: "By the lav of nature these things are common to all mankind - the air running water the sea, and consequently the shores of the sea. " The traditional scope of the public trust doctrine in the United States affirms the public right to use waters for navigation, fishing, and commerce. The precise expression of the doctrine varies from state to state because each state is responsible for applying the public trust doctrine within its borders.

Land Use For Economic Development In Tough Financial Times, John R. Nolon

Pace Law Faculty Publications

The recession hit cities hard. Basic municipal staffs and services are being cut, debt is being restructured, capital projects delayed, and other cost cutting measures reported. The Congressional Budget Office reports that by November of last year there were 241,000 fewer municipal employees than there were three years earlier when the recession began. In its most recent report from city finance officers, the National League of Cities states that city spending cutbacks since 2009 are the largest since the survey was first taken, over twenty-five years ago. Despite this serious trend, municipalities have not defaulted in debt payment and ...

Nobreza De Espírito - Um Ideal Republicano, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Nobreza De Espírito - Um Ideal Republicano, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

República não significa massificação. Nenhuma democracia pode sobreviver sem elites. Não grupos oligárquicos, plutocráticos, ensimesmados e snobs, mas eleites demofílicas, integradas no global espírito e ambiente democrático. O livro Nobreza de Espírito, de Rob Rieman, recordando Thomas Mann e as suas posições sobre o problema, é um importante alerta, e um memorando a considerar.
