The Role Of The Judiciary In The Work Of Madame Justice Wilson, Christine Boyle Jul 1992

The Role Of The Judiciary In The Work Of Madame Justice Wilson, Christine Boyle

Dalhousie Law Journal

My topic is the role of the judiciary in the work of Madame Justice Wilson, but I am going to use a particular focus. I started with the famous lecture "Do Women Judges Really Make a Difference" delivered at Osgoode Hall Law School7 and it helped me think of a question. What is it that women judges might make a difference to? One answer is the law, another is judging itself. These themes were very clear in Madame Justice Wilson's lecture. Another answer, however, is the concept of woman. When women judges make a difference to law, part of ...

The Hidden Gender Of Law, Christine Boyle May 1992

The Hidden Gender Of Law, Christine Boyle

Dalhousie Law Journal

Two legal academics who set out to produce a book of materials with such a title could weave many components into it. They could explore feminist methodology, and show how much feminist legal scholarship has in common with feminist scholarship generally. They could illustrate the influence of feminist academic work on actual legal decisions and legislation. They could discuss feminist scholarship and legal education, including the dramatic developments over the last twenty years. Questions about fundamental values - equality, liberty, security, fairness - could be addressed. Materials could be included from the field of law often called Women and the Law, that ...

Feminist Jurisprudence In A Conventional Context: Is There Room For Feminism In Dworkin's Theory Of Interpretive Concepts?, Lynne Hanson Apr 1992

Feminist Jurisprudence In A Conventional Context: Is There Room For Feminism In Dworkin's Theory Of Interpretive Concepts?, Lynne Hanson

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

This paper examines Dworkin's interpretive theory of law from a feminist perspective, and asks whether his attempts to accommodate competing political opinions within an interpretive community can successfully encompass feminist concerns as well. It is argued that Dworkin repeatedly underestimates the extent of disagreement regarding the practice of law as a whole, while his requirements of fit, coherence and integrity impose a political agenda on the interpreter. As a consequence, Dworkin's theory is ultimately unable to adequately respond to a feminist critique of law, so that feminist jurisprudence must be seen as falling outside the scope of his ...


Apostolat Juridique: Teaching Everyday Law In The Life Of Marie Lacoste Gérin-Lajoie (1867-1945), Nicholas Kasirer Apr 1992

Apostolat Juridique: Teaching Everyday Law In The Life Of Marie Lacoste Gérin-Lajoie (1867-1945), Nicholas Kasirer

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

Based on a reading of archival material stored in a convent in east-end Montreal, the author describes the career of Marie Lacoste Gérin-Lajoie, a self-trained jurist who taught and wrote about law for women in convent schools, teachers' colleges, study circles, temperance union meetings and the like over a forty-year period in Quebec at the beginning of this century. Her career as a law teacher is presented as a sign of a less visible facet of the history of legal education in Quebec-beyond the formal institutions of law teaching-that was closely tied to the home and the private world of ...

Legislative Inputs And Gender-Based Discrimination In The Burger Court, Earl M. Maltz Mar 1992

Legislative Inputs And Gender-Based Discrimination In The Burger Court, Earl M. Maltz

Michigan Law Review

In An Interpretive History of Modem Equal Protection, Michael Klarman poses a powerful challenge to the conventional wisdom regarding the structure of Burger Court jurisprudence. Most commentators have concluded that during the Burger era the Court lacked a coherent vision of constitutional law, and was given to a "rootless" activism or a "pragmatic" approach to constitutional analysis. Klarman argues that, at least in the area of equal protection analysis, the Burger Court's approach did reflect a unifying theme, which he describes as a focus on "legislative inputs." According to Klarman, this approach "directs judicial review towards purging legislative decision-making ...

Sex Selection: Regulating Technology Enabling The Predetermination Of A Child's Gender, Owen D. Jones Jan 1992

Sex Selection: Regulating Technology Enabling The Predetermination Of A Child's Gender, Owen D. Jones

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

The debate over the prohibition of sex (or gender) selection (also known as "preselection" or "predetermination"), has focused almost exclusively on the context of aborting a "wrong-sex" fetus after a fetal gender-identification procedure. Despite the fact that sex selection abortions represent only a small subset of sex selection procedures, attitudes toward the former are driving general policy approaches to the latter. However, the issues are analytically distinct, and only during the former infancy of the pre-conceptive (and non-abortive post-conceptive) technology for sex selection were members on both sides of the debate afforded the economy of using one logic to support ...
