Multimodal Transportation Under The Rotterdam Rules: Legal Implications For European Carriage Of Goods And The Quest For Uniformity, Olena Bokareva 2015 Lund University

Multimodal Transportation Under The Rotterdam Rules: Legal Implications For European Carriage Of Goods And The Quest For Uniformity, Olena Bokareva

Olena Bokareva

The increase in intercontinental trade and the modernization of transport infrastructure has transformed the traditional patterns of carriage of goods globally. The transportation by land precedes and follows the sea carriage. These developments led to the growing use of multimodal transportation, which simplifies the door-to-door delivery of goods by different modes of transport under a single contract. The existing transport conventions deal with one specific mode of transport, such as sea, rail, air and inland waterways, while an international mandatory convention related to multimodal transportation is lacking. The previous attempts to create an international legal instrument to govern this type ...


Damage Control: Adapting Transportation To A Changing Climate, Trip Pollard 2015 College of William & Mary Law School

Damage Control: Adapting Transportation To A Changing Climate, Trip Pollard

William & Mary Environmental Law and Policy Review

Sea level rise, extreme weather events, and other problems caused or exacerbated by a changing climate present the most serious long-term threats to transportation worldwide. Recent disasters have carried a hefty price tag, and forecasts call for more frequent and more costly damage to infrastructure and disruptions of services that are central to trade, jobs, food access, national security, health, and personal mobility. It is essential to reduce greenhouse gas pollution to lessen future damage to transportation; however, even if emissions are cut drastically at this point, the impacts of a changing climate will continue for decades. As a result ...

An App For That: Local Governments And The Rise Of The Sharing Economy, Andrew T. Bond 2015 Notre Dame Law School

An App For That: Local Governments And The Rise Of The Sharing Economy, Andrew T. Bond

Notre Dame Law Review Online

The revolution of the Internet in the late 1990s brought consumers together in unique and unprecedented ways. The evolution of the sharing economy in the early twenty-first century builds upon the Internet’s revolution by connecting consumers and unused resources in a readily accessible and efficient manner.

At the same time, the sharing economy puts new pressures on local governments in choosing how to respond to this evolution. One method of evaluating local government responses is through a paradigmatic example. In this Essay, that case study is Uber: a novel and unabashedly antagonistic transportation service that offers on-demand taxi access ...


Definitions, Religion, And Free Exercise Guarantees, Mark Strasser 2015 Capital University Law School

Definitions, Religion, And Free Exercise Guarantees, Mark Strasser

Mark Strasser

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the free exercise of religion. Non-religious practices do not receive those same protections, which makes the ability to distinguish between religious and non-religious practices important. Regrettably, members of the Court have been unable to agree about how to distinguish the religious from the non-religious—sometimes, the implicit criteria focus on the sincerity of the beliefs, sometimes the strength of the beliefs or the role that they play in an individual’s life, and sometimes the kind of beliefs. In short, the Court has virtually guaranteed an incoherent jurisprudence by sending contradictory ...


One Small Problem With Administrative Driver’S License Suspension Laws: They Don’T Reduce Drunken Driving, Steve R. Darnell 2015 University of Nevada - Reno

One Small Problem With Administrative Driver’S License Suspension Laws: They Don’T Reduce Drunken Driving, Steve R. Darnell

Steve R Darnell

Only eight states continue to rely on the judicial system to suspend a drunken driver’s license instead of an administrative process. Federal agencies and special interest groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety press for Administrative License Suspension (ALS) laws arguing these laws reduce drunken driving. While some research supports this view, there is an equally and more compelling literature indicating ALS laws are not effective in reducing drunken driving. This study analyzed data from eight states that have adopted ALS laws to determine if the ALS laws reduced drunken driving ...


(Still) "Unsafe At Any Speed": Why Not Jail For Auto Executives?, Rena I. Steinzor 2015 University of Maryland - Baltimore

(Still) "Unsafe At Any Speed": Why Not Jail For Auto Executives?, Rena I. Steinzor

Faculty Scholarship

Americans can be forgiven for wondering what has gone so drastically wrong with the companies that sell automobiles. In 2014, 64 million, a number equivalent to one in five of the cars on the road, was recalled. Safety defects such as the lack of torque in ignition switches installed in GM compact cars like the Cobalt put motorists in the terrifying position of coping with a stalled engine and loss of power brakes while traveling at high speeds. GM had the audacity to classify this condition was not a safety defect, but instead was merely “inconvenient” for its customers. It ...

21st Century Futurama: Contemplating Removal Of Urban Freeways In The World Of Tomorrow, Jessica Kraft-Klehm 2015 Washington University School of Law

21st Century Futurama: Contemplating Removal Of Urban Freeways In The World Of Tomorrow, Jessica Kraft-Klehm

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

Urban freeway removal has been increasing in popularity due to its viability as a mechanism for positive urban development, as it is thought to spur economic development and the revitalization of many ‘downtown’ areas that have been blighted by an unfair system. This Note discusses the Federal-Aid Highway Act and its impact on urban America. Ultimately, this note proposes that national transportation policy be revised to actively promote urban freeway removal projects.

Ending Drunk Driving With A Flash Of Light, Andrew Sullivan 2015 University of Richmond

Ending Drunk Driving With A Flash Of Light, Andrew Sullivan

Law Student Publications

Among the methods used to combat drunk driving is mandating a person convicted of driving under the influence/driving while intoxicated install an ignition interlock device (“IID”) in his/her vehicle as a condition of restoring his/her driving privileges.This comment argues that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) has the authority to issue such a regulation; it need only be presented with a workable opportunity to do so. The present state of IID technology is a poor candidate to make this hypothetical regulation workable, but advances in Near Infrared (“near-IR”) Spectroscopy will provide the technology necessary to ...

The Criminalization Of Walking, Michael Lewyn 2014 Touro Law Center

The Criminalization Of Walking, Michael Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

Because walking improves human health and reduces pollution, one might think that the law should encourage walking and discourage driving But in fact, criminal law sometimes punishes walkers, in two major respects. First, state and city laws against something often referred to as “jaywalking” limit walkers’ ability to cross streets. As a result of these laws, police can fine (and even arrest) walkers. Second, bureaucrats and police sometimes interpret child neglect laws to mean that preteen children may never walk on their own, and have sometimes arrested child pedestrians' parents or sought to place the children in state care. This ...

Was Singapore Airlines Liable For Business-Class Seats Sold At Economy Rates?, Yihan GOH 2014 Singapore Management University

Was Singapore Airlines Liable For Business-Class Seats Sold At Economy Rates?, Yihan Goh

Research Collection School Of Law

Much has been reported about Singapore Airlines (“SIA”) mistakenly charging economy rates for around 900 business-class seats due to a computer input error. Yesterday, SIA said that it would honour those tickets at economy rates, reversing its previous position that it would not, and closing the episode on a note of goodwill. This blog entry explores the legal analysis behind the episode on the assumption that Singapore contract law applies, so as to maintain its general relevance to a Singaporean audience and its specific application to online retailers concerned about making similar pricing errors. Of course, the analysis would differ ...
