Social Engineering Through Shari’A: Islamic Law And State-Directed Da’Wa In Contemporary Aceh, R. Michael Feener Dec 2013

Social Engineering Through Shari’A: Islamic Law And State-Directed Da’Wa In Contemporary Aceh, R. Michael Feener

Indonesia Law Review

This study of the contemporary Islamic legal system in Aceh, Indonesia argues for new attention to be paid to the ways in which contemporary Muslim agendas for the implementation of Islamic law can be read as projects for future oriented social transformation—rather than as a series of reactive measures to perceived ‘crises of modernity’ and/or the political machinations of rival elites in contesting control of state power. In doing so it highlights the ways in which the ideals of, and institutional formations developed by, proponents of Islamic law are configured in relation to a broad range of non-Muslim modernist projects, …


The Sanction Regime Applicable To An Illegal Direct Award Initiated Before The Remedies Directive Has Taken Full Effect, Emanuela A. Matei Dec 2013

The Sanction Regime Applicable To An Illegal Direct Award Initiated Before The Remedies Directive Has Taken Full Effect, Emanuela A. Matei

Emanuela A. Matei

The respect due to the transparency principle in public procurement law is embodied by the obligation to publish in advance a contract award notice. In Sweden an award in breach of the named obligation is subject to a stricter regime of penalties according to national law, though the application of the prescribed sanction has been limited to awards being initiated subsequent to 15 July 2010. Judicial proceedings at last instance have been kept and a final judgment has been given in favour of the contracting authority. The Supreme Administrative Court interprets the national public procurement law by making reference to …

Jurisdiction Revisited: The Inherent Supervisory Power Of The Courts To Review Administrative Decisions - The Case Of R (Ignaoua) V Sshd [2013] Ewca Civ 1498, Patrick Matthew Hassan-Morlai Dec 2013

Jurisdiction Revisited: The Inherent Supervisory Power Of The Courts To Review Administrative Decisions - The Case Of R (Ignaoua) V Sshd [2013] Ewca Civ 1498, Patrick Matthew Hassan-Morlai

Patrick Matthew Hassan-Morlai

The Court of Appeal handed down its decision in R (Ignaoua) v SSHD on 21 November. Ignaoua emphasizes that Parliament does not purport to remove the court’s jurisdiction to entertain judicial review proceedings under Section 15 of the Justice and Security Act 2013. This paper argues that the provisions in both the primary and secondary legislation in Ignaoua are clear enough to convey Parliament’s intention to give the Home Secretary the power to terminate judicial review proceedings or appeal from judicial review proceedings relating to a direction to exclude a foreign national from the United Kingdom. However, the Court of …


Victims’ Opportunities To Review A Decision Not To Prosecute Made By The Crown Prosecutor, Li Tian Dec 2013

Victims’ Opportunities To Review A Decision Not To Prosecute Made By The Crown Prosecutor, Li Tian

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

In Canada, Crown prosecutors and the Attorney General are not always as fair as we expect when making charging decisions, and therefore victims could be personally aggrieved by unfair and unjust decisions not to prosecute. When this happens, victims have limited remedy to redress the unfairness and unjustness in order to uphold their interests in a criminal proceeding. Conversely, the European Union, United Kingdom, and the United State have taken steps to let victims challenge decisions not to prosecute to some extent. Drawing on experiences of the abovementioned jurisdictions, I propose a two-level process of review for decisions not to …


Wireless Localism: Beyond The Shroud Of Objectivity In Federal Spectrum Administration, Olivier Sylvain Dec 2013

Wireless Localism: Beyond The Shroud Of Objectivity In Federal Spectrum Administration, Olivier Sylvain

Michigan Telecommunications & Technology Law Review

Recent innovations in mobile wireless technology have instigated a debate between two camps of legal scholars about federal administration of the electromagnetic spectrum. The first camp argues that the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) should define spectrum use rights more clearly and give spectrum licensees broad property rights in frequencies. The second camp argues that, rather than award exclusive licenses to the highest bidder, the FCC ought to open much, if not most, of the spectrum to unlicensed use by smartphones and tablets equipped with the newest spectrum administration technology. First, this Article shows that both of these camps comprise a …


An Insurmountable Obstacle: Denying Deference To The Bia’S Social Visibility Requirement, Kathleen Kersh Dec 2013

An Insurmountable Obstacle: Denying Deference To The Bia’S Social Visibility Requirement, Kathleen Kersh

Michigan Journal of Race and Law

In the last fifteen years, the Board of Immigration Appeals has imposed a requirement that persons seeking asylum based on membership in a particular social group must establish that the social group is “socially visible” throughout society. This Comment argues that the social visibility requirement should be denied administrative deference on several grounds. The requirement should be denied Chevron deference because Congress’s intent behind the Refugee Act of 1980 is clear and unambiguous and, alternatively, the requirement is an impermissible interpretation of the statute. The requirement is also arbitrary and capricious under the Administrative Procedures Act. This Comment argues that …

Administrative Judges And Agency Policy Development: The Koch Way, Ronald M. Levin Dec 2013

Administrative Judges And Agency Policy Development: The Koch Way, Ronald M. Levin

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

Among the creative contributions that the late Charles H. Koch, Jr., made to administrative law thinking was his exploration of the present and potential role of administrative judges as policymakers. Charles stood in firm opposition to recent trends that, in his view, had served to strengthen the policymaking role of administrative judges at the expense of agency heads. He insisted that ultimate control over the policy direction of a program should rest with the officials who have been appointed to administer that program. While adhering to this baseline, however, Charles gravitated over time toward a nuanced view that sought to …

Hierarchically Variable Deference To Agency Interpretations, Aaron-Andrew P. Bruhl Dec 2013

Hierarchically Variable Deference To Agency Interpretations, Aaron-Andrew P. Bruhl

Faculty Publications

When courts review agency action, they typically accord agency decisions a degree of deference. As many courts and commentators have recognized, the law in this area is complicated because it features numerous standards of review, including several distinct regimes for evaluating agencies’ legal interpretations. There is, however, at least one important respect in which uniformity rather than variety prevails: the applicable standards of review do not vary depending on which court is reviewing the agency. Whichever standard governs a particular case—Chevron, Skidmore, or something else—all courts in the judicial hierarchy are supposed to apply that same standard.

This Article proposes …

Private Standards Organizations And Public Law, Peter L. Strauss Dec 2013

Private Standards Organizations And Public Law, Peter L. Strauss

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

Simplified, universal access to law is one of the important transformations worked by the digital age. With the replacement of physical by digital copies, citizens ordinarily need travel only to the nearest computer to find and read the texts that bind them. Lagging behind this development, however, has been computer access to standards developed by private standards development organizations, often under the umbrella of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and then converted by agency actions incorporating them by reference into legal obligations. To discover what colors the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires for use in work-place caution …

Liabilities For Design Defects In A Collaborative, Integrated, Digital Age, Juan Jonnathan Bravo, Jaime Gray Nov 2013

Liabilities For Design Defects In A Collaborative, Integrated, Digital Age, Juan Jonnathan Bravo, Jaime Gray

Jonnathan Bravo Venegas

The purpose of this article is to address the new challenges concerning liabilities arising from errors or defects in construction projects that employ new design methods and techniques such as BIM and new collaborative project delivery systems. Following an examination of some relevant legal issues, with particular emphasis on the Peruvian Civil Code, the authors propose that parties should clearly establish in their agreements the scope of work or services and the liability each of them should bear.

JOHNMARY CHUKWUKASI JIDEOBI Esq.

As the title of this article suggests, the preoccupation of this writer is to embark on a voyage of enquiry into the issues and controversies stirred by and surrounding the governorship election held on November 16th,2013 in Anambra State of Nigeria especially an in-depth examination of how far/well the institution of the Independent National Electoral Commission (hereinafter indiscriminately referred to as “the INEC” “the Commission” or “the Umpire” for the purposes of convenience and elimination of prolixity) discharged its constitutionally assigned onerous responsibility.

Against the background of the weighty allegations of administrative lapses resulting in “disappearance” of names of registered …


Using Social Media In Rulemaking: Possibilities And Barriers, Michael E. Herz Nov 2013

Using Social Media In Rulemaking: Possibilities And Barriers, Michael E. Herz

Faculty Online Publications

“Web 2.0” is characterized by interaction, collaboration, non-static web sites, use of social media, and creation of user-generated content. In theory, these Web 2.0 tools can be harnessed not only in the private sphere but as tools for an e-topia of citizen engagement and participatory democracy. Notice-and-comment rulemaking is the pre-digital government process that most approached (while still falling far short of) the e-topian vision of public participation in deliberative governance. The notice-and-comment process for federal agency rulemaking has now changed from a paper process to an electronic one. Expectations for this switch were high; many anticipated a revolution that …


Injunctions In Sovereign Debt Litigation, Mark C. Weidemaier, Anna Gelpern Nov 2013

Injunctions In Sovereign Debt Litigation, Mark C. Weidemaier, Anna Gelpern

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Injunctions against foreign sovereigns have come under criticism on comity and enforcement grounds. We argue that these objections are overstated. Comity considerations are important but not dispositive. Enforcement objections assign too much significance to the court’s inability to impose meaningful contempt sanctions, overlooking the fact that, when a foreign sovereign is involved, both money judgments and injunctions are enforced through what amounts to a court-imposed embargo. This embargo discourages third parties from dealing with the sovereign and, if sufficiently costly, can induce the sovereign to comply. Nevertheless, we are skeptical about injunctions in sovereign debt litigation. They are prone to …
