Legal Adaptive Capacity : How Program Goals And Processes Shape Federal Land Adaption To Climate Change, Alejandro E. Camacho, Robert L. Glicksman

University of Colorado Law Review

The degree to which statutory goals are pliable is likely to significantly affect the ability of an agency with regulatory or management responsibilities to achieve those objectives in the face of novel challenges or changing circumstances. This Article explores this dynamic by comparing the degree of 'ive" provided by the goals of the regimes governing management of the five types of federal public lands in responding to the challenges posed by climate change.

Destinations: A Comparison Of Sex Trafficking In India And The United States, Sarah Montana Hart Jan 2012

Destinations: A Comparison Of Sex Trafficking In India And The United States, Sarah Montana Hart

University of Colorado Law Review

This Note examines the similarities and differences between sex trafficking in India and the United States. It highlights three similarities between the countries. First, the basic sexual demands of the johns are not being met by the local population of women despite that population's vulnerabilities. Second, sex trafficking is usually more profitable than legal alternatives for the pimps. Third, the victims are lured by the dreams of a better life that the traffickers supposedly can provide and will therefore often consent to travel with them until it is too late. This Note argues that if these three truths apply in …
