Rewriting Roe V. Wade, Donald H. Regan Aug 1979

Rewriting Roe V. Wade, Donald H. Regan

Articles

Roe v. Wade is one of the most controversial cases the Supreme Court has decided. The result in the case - the establishment of a constitutional right to abortion - was controversial enough. Beyond that, even people who approve of the result have been dissatisfied with the Court's opinion. Others before me have attempted to explain how a better opinion could have been written. It seems to me, however, that the most promising argument in support of the result of Roe has not yet been made. This essay contains my suggestions for "rewriting" Roe v. Wade

Harbor Lines And The Public Trust Doctrine In Washington Navigable Waters, Ralph W. Johnson, Eileen M. Cooney Mar 1979

Harbor Lines And The Public Trust Doctrine In Washington Navigable Waters, Ralph W. Johnson, Eileen M. Cooney

Articles

Since 1971 the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) has been the dominant legal tool for managing the Washington coastal zone. However, use of state-owned beds of navigable fresh and salt waters below low tide or the low-water line is still controlled largely by the harbor line system established in the 1889 state constitution. Almost no attention has been paid to the harbor line system in the legal literature, or to its relationship to the other laws concerned with coastal zone management. This article briefly analyzes the relationship of the harbor line system to the SMA, to the various federal laws concerned …

In Pursuit Of Excellence -- A History Of The University Of Minnesota Law School, Part V: The Lockhart Years -- A Time Of Achievement And Challenge, Robert Stein

Articles

Following the long and successful administration of Dean Everett Fraser (1920-1948), the University of Minnesota Law School's fourth dean, Maynard E. Pirsig (1948-1955), presided over seven transitional years at the school. With a talent for attracting young faculty members of extraordinary quality, he did much to enhance the school's tradition of excellence. But, at the same time, his administration suffered from the tensions incident to a changing relationship between the faculty and the dean. In 1955, a faculty-drawn self-survey provided the impetus for a statement of a new division of responsibility between dean and faculty, which clearly articulated both the …

When Everett Fraser retired as Dean of the University of Minnesota Law School in June of 1948, he left to his successor a school ripe for change.

When William B. Lockhart resigned from the deanship of the University of Minnesota Law School in June 1972, a productive sixteen-year tenure came to an end. Guided in the early years by the recommendations of the 1955 Law School Self-Survey, Lockhart and his faculty achieved significant success in improving the school's relationship with the bar, in revitalizing the educational program, in improving the quality of the student body, and in maintaining the quality of the faculty. In the later years of his tenure, the law school successfully responded, under Lockhart's leadership, to a variety of challenges presented in the turbulence …

Primary Line Injury Under The Robinson-Patman Act: The Development Of Standards And Erosion Of Enforcement, Daniel J. Gifford

Articles

In the past it has been a most common practice of great and powerful combinations engaged in commerce-notably the Standard Oil Co., and the American Tobacco Co., and others of less notoriety, but of great in-fluence-to lower prices of their commodities, oftentimes below the cost of production in certain communities and sections where they had competition, with the intent to destroy and make unprofitable the busi-ness of their competitors, and with the ultimate purpose in view of thereby acquiring a monopoly in the particular locality or section in which the discriminating price is made. Every concern that engages in this …
