The Relationship Between Force Majeure Clauses And The Excuse Defenses, Gregory Crespi Jun 2024

The Relationship Between Force Majeure Clauses And The Excuse Defenses, Gregory Crespi

SMU Law Review Forum

Many commercial contracts include force majeure clauses that excuse the parties from performing some or all of their obligations upon the occurrence of specified supervening events. The law is unclear as to the proper relationship between such clauses and the assertion of common law or statutory excuse defenses such as impossibility, impracticability, or frustration of purpose with regard to supervening events that are outside of the scope of such clauses. In particular, under what circumstances, if any, should a force majeure clause be regarded as preclusive of these excuse defenses with regard to those supervening events that the clause does …


School Leaders Supporting Undocumented Asian And Black Students, Lorena Tule-Romain May 2024

School Leaders Supporting Undocumented Asian And Black Students, Lorena Tule-Romain

Education Policy and Leadership Theses and Dissertations

There are 5.6 million K-12 students who are either undocumented or living with at least one undocumented parent (Passel & Cohn, 2018). In 2021, FWD.us estimated that approximately 620,000 K-12 students are undocumented; 34% of these students migrated from countries in Asia, sub-Saharan African, and Caribbean countries.

While scholars have conducted research on the largest group of undocumented students, Latinx, existing knowledge of the students coming from Asian and African countries …


Protect Trans Kids: A Call To Action, Suzi Goebel May 2024

Protect Trans Kids: A Call To Action, Suzi Goebel

SMU Law Review Forum

The last several years have seen an increasing number of attacks on marginalized groups in the United States, including people of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Most recently, some state legislatures have focused their efforts on preventing transgender youth from accessing gender-affirming medical care. Despite a virtually unanimous consensus on the importance and benefits of gender-affirming care, many conservative politicians have taken aim at vulnerable children, standing in the way of potentially life-saving treatment and accusing their families and doctors of child abuse. Laws preventing transgender youth from receiving gender-affirming care are just one battle in the …


Ending Arkansas’ First Appearance Crisis, Malia N. Brink, Pamela R. Metzger, Claire Buetow, Terrence Cain May 2024

Ending Arkansas’ First Appearance Crisis, Malia N. Brink, Pamela R. Metzger, Claire Buetow, Terrence Cain

Deason Criminal Justice Reform Center

Arkansas law is clear: every arrested person has the right to an attorney’s help the first time they see a judge. But across the state, people often face a judge at first appearance without a lawyer by their side. Even worse, a shortage of attorneys means people sometimes wait months for a lawyer’s help. The Constitution promises that every person in jail will have access to the courts and to counsel. Yet far too often, Arkansas allows people to languish in jail alone, afraid, and undefended.

This policy brief outlines research-based solutions for Arkansas to honor the Constitution’s promises by …
