Addressing Sexual Misconduct In Community Corrections, Brenda V. Smith, Maureen Buell, Elizabeth Layman, Susan W. Mccampbell Apr 2003

Addressing Sexual Misconduct In Community Corrections, Brenda V. Smith, Maureen Buell, Elizabeth Layman, Susan W. Mccampbell

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN OFFENDERS AND EMPLOYEES of community-based corrections organizations have emerged as a serious issue. Among the most dangerous and destructive of these inappropriate relationships is sexual misconduct. The very nature of community corrections, with semi-autonomous employees, the increasing focus on a rehabilitative rather than the punitive model, the increase of offenders assigned to these programs, and actual allegations of sexual misconduct have raised the awareness of administrators of the need for action.

Report Of The Committee Of Experts On Nation Rebuilding In Afghanistan, Paul Williams, Michael Scharff Jan 2003

Report Of The Committee Of Experts On Nation Rebuilding In Afghanistan, Paul Williams, Michael Scharff

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

With the destruction of the Taliban regime, the international community is turning its attention toward the establishment of an interim government consistent with the Bonn Accords, and the identification of a process for selecting a more long-term governing arrangement. As is well known, these first steps toward establishing a new government in Afghanistan are the beginning of a long and difficult process for re-establishing peace. Absent a comprehensive and attainable plan for nation rebuilding in Afghanistan, the United States may find that despite its victory on the battle- field, it may be unable to adequately achieve its long term security ...

Achieving A Final Status Settlement For Kosovo, Paul Williams, R Hitchner, Janusz Bugajski

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

On November 19, 2002, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the National Albanian American Council, and the Dayton Peace Accords Project held a one-day conference in Washington, D.C., at CSIS, entitled “The Future of Kosovo.” The conference was attended by U.S. policymakers, congressional representatives, regional specialists, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), business leaders, journalists, as well as key activists and analysts from Kosovo. The vital question of Kosovo’s emerging status was discussed openly with a view to producing a subsequent report offering concrete recommendations to the U.S. administration, U.S. legislators, and major international organizations on ...


Alternative Approaches To Judicial Review Of Social Security Disability Cases, Jeffrey Lubbers Jan 2003

Alternative Approaches To Judicial Review Of Social Security Disability Cases, Jeffrey Lubbers

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

For many years, Congress has had various bills before it to create alternatives to the current practice of Article III review (in district courts) of Social Security disability cases. This report, prepared initially for the Social Security Advisory Board, reviews the various legislative proposals and statutory alternatives such as the Veterans Administration administrative/judicial review structure. It concludes that, on balance, review before an Article I court (with Court of Appeals review limited to purely legal issues) has numerous advantages over the present system. These advantages include improvements in the accuracy and consistency of results (the federal district courts have ...

Private Law Making, David Snyder Jan 2003

Private Law Making, David Snyder

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

This article argues that a significant amount of law is privately made and suggests that privately made law should be subjected to the same kinds of questioning as publicly made law, considering in the end whether privately made law might be considered "molecular federalism." Private lawmaking, through which one private group makes rules that govern much larger groups, extends well beyond the boundaries of relatively well-known examples of private legislatures like the American Law Institute and the Uniform Law Commissioners. The phenomenon includes the practical ability of private entities to make law governing many kinds of corporate, commercial, and consumer ...


Earned Sovereignty: The Political Dimension, James Hooper, Paul Williams Jan 2003

Earned Sovereignty: The Political Dimension, James Hooper, Paul Williams

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

There are currently over fifty sovereignty-based conflicts throughout the world, and nearly a third of the Specially Designated Global Terrorists listed by the United States Treasury Department are associated with sovereignty-based conflicts and self-determination movements. To date, the "sovereignty first" international response to these conflicts has been unable to stem the tide of violence, and in many instances may have contributed to further outbreaks of violence. This article will argue that the "sovereignty first" doctrine is slowly being supplemented by a new conflict resolution approach which we dub "earned sovereignty."

Legal Interviewing And Counseling: An Introduction, Ann Shalleck, Robert Dinerstein, Stephen Ellmann, Isabelle Gunning

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

n this article, the authors, who are writing their own textbook on interviewing and counseling, reflect on the ways in which Gary Bel­low & Bea Mou/ton's groundbreaking textbook, The Lawyering Pro­cess, has shaped and is shaping their work. The authors include the introductory chapter of their forthcoming textbook interspersed with commentary on the influence of Bellow & Moulton on each of the primary themes through which their textbook will explore interview­ing and counseling: variations in the lawyer-client relationship, con­text, connection, ethics and theory-driven lawyering. This review allows them to evaluate, not only how deeply and pervasively ...


Watching You, Watching Me, Brenda V. Smith Jan 2003

Watching You, Watching Me, Brenda V. Smith

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

This article examines one of the most often called for remedies for sexual abuse of female inmates - ending cross-gender supervision of female inmates by male correctional staff. Part I of the article describes the context of sexual misconduct against prisoners in the United States, highlighting important cases and discourse. Part II examines important differences in the legal decisions that address claims challenging cross-gender supervision raised by or concerning male and female inmates. Part III addresses the disconnect between the jurisprudence involving cross-gender supervision of men and women positing a "dignity and shame" approach by the court, and examines the explicit ...

The Role Of Justice In The Former Yugoslavia: Antidote Or Placebo For Coercive Appeasement?, Paul Williams, Patricia Taft Jan 2003

The Role Of Justice In The Former Yugoslavia: Antidote Or Placebo For Coercive Appeasement?, Paul Williams, Patricia Taft

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

Throughout the 1990's, the approach of the European Union and the United States to the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia was one of coercive appeasement. By most professional and historical accounts, this approach was a failed one, with the consequences that over 250,000 civilians were killed, thousands raped and millions displaced. Throughout the conflict, the institutions of justice created by the international community frequently served as a mere placebo rather than an antidote to the dominant approach of coercive appeasement. Frequently key policymakers actively sought to constrain the role of justice during the peace building process. At times ...

How Should We Theorize Class Interests In Thinking About Professional Regulation: The Early Naacp As A Case Example, Susan Carle Jan 2003

How Should We Theorize Class Interests In Thinking About Professional Regulation: The Early Naacp As A Case Example, Susan Carle

Articles in Law Reviews & Other Academic Journals

INTRODUCTIONThe Editors of the Cornell Journal of Law and Public Policy have specifically requested that I address in this essay some research I finished quite a while ago, but to which I hope to return in the near future, concerning the history of the first national legal committee of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). (1) Therefore, I plan to raise a big picture question left unanswered by that earlier research here: how should we understand lawyers' class interests in relation to their involvement in the development of legal ethics rules concerning public interest law practice ...
