Who Are The Parents Biotechnological Children?, Larry I. Palmer Oct 1994

Who Are The Parents Biotechnological Children?, Larry I. Palmer

Faculty Publications

We do not underestimate the difficulties of legislating on this subject. In addition to the inevitable confrontation with the ethical and moral issues involved, there is the question of the wisdom and effectiveness of regulating a matter so private, yet of such public interest. Legislative consideration of surrogacy may also provide the opportunity to begin to focus on the overall implications of the new reproductive biotechnology- in vitro fertilization, preservation of sperms and eggs, embryo implantation and the like. The problem is how to enjoy the benefits of the technology-especially for infertile couples-while minimizing the risk of abuse. The problem ...

Elections Ethics In Government: Provide For The Applicability Of Disclosure Provisions To Activities Relating To The Influencing Of Certain Local Public Officers And Employees, Gregg Mitchel Porter

Georgia State University Law Review

The Act requires lobbyists to disclose expenditures made to any public officer intended to influence the passage of any ordinance or resolution. The Act subjects city and county officials to the same ethics requirements as state legislators.

Risk Management For Lawyers, William H. Fortune, Dulaney O’Roark Jul 1994

Risk Management For Lawyers, William H. Fortune, Dulaney O’Roark

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Lawyers are under siege. We have become objects of scorn, ridicule, and occasional hatred. If you take your child to the Stephen Spielberg movie Jurassic Park, be prepared for the cheers when the cloned Tyrannosaurus Rex gobbles the lawyer—not a bad guy at all—cowering in the outhouse. In San Francisco a client burst into a California law firm and killed eight and wounded six persons before taking his own life. In response, the president of the California bar linked lawyer-bashing to hate crimes and prevailed on the Miller Brewing Company to withdraw a television commercial depicting a "lawyer-roping ...

Acceptable Risk: A Conceptual Proposal, Baruch Fischhoff Jan 1994

Acceptable Risk: A Conceptual Proposal, Baruch Fischhoff

RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)

Challenging the "de minimis risk" concept, Dr. Fischhoff argues that risks ought not to be considered apart from a particular technology's benefits. He argues, too, that the acceptability of particular kinds of risks should not be determined without considering the views of all persons who may be exposed. Finally, building upon the "reasonable person" construct, he suggests ways those goals might be achieved.


Study Of Ethical Dilemmas And Policy Implications, A, Robert A. Baruch Bush, Jan 1994

Study Of Ethical Dilemmas And Policy Implications, A, Robert A. Baruch Bush,

Journal of Dispute Resolution

This paper is based on research sponsored by the National Institute for Dispute Resolution and by Hofstra University School of Law. The research involved interviews with roughly eighty mediators working in one of the three areas mentioned above. The mediators were asked to identify situations they had experienced in mediation that, in their view, raised difficult ethical dilemmas on which they felt the need for guidance by professional standards and program policy. This report summarizes and illustrates the findings of the research as to the major types of dilemmas practicing mediators are confronted with and analyzes these dilemmas and their ...


Reply To The Commentators On The Ethical Dilemmas Study, A, Robert A. Baruch Bush Jan 1994

Reply To The Commentators On The Ethical Dilemmas Study, A, Robert A. Baruch Bush

Journal of Dispute Resolution

The invitation to republish here the report on my study of mediators' ethical dilemmas was a very gratifying one. My hope was that this report would generate further thought and discussion on this important subject, and this symposium will certainly help to realize that aim. For this I am grateful to the editors of the Journal and their advisor, Professor Leonard Riskin. Moreover, the best part of this invitation was that it contemplated the publication of comments on the report from a number of well-known and thoughtful figures in the mediation field. This kind of public dialogue is something all ...


Ethical Dilemmas Or Benign Neglect, Richard A. Salem Jan 1994

Ethical Dilemmas Or Benign Neglect, Richard A. Salem

Journal of Dispute Resolution

But, the real message of this study is that guidance for mediators facing ethical dilemmas is long past due. The Florida mediators, as might have been anticipated, are encountering a number of ethical problems that are familiar to mediators elsewhere and that are endemic to practicing in this field. But, as Professor Bush suggests, the interviews indicate that some of the problems confronting Florida mediators result from their being placed in the untenable position of not being provided with: (1) sufficient policy and procedural guidelines; or (2) training to competently mediate cases being referred to them.


Ethics: No One Ever Said It Would Be Easy: Bush's Contribution To Mediation Practice, Albie M. Davis Jan 1994

Ethics: No One Ever Said It Would Be Easy: Bush's Contribution To Mediation Practice, Albie M. Davis

Journal of Dispute Resolution

The beauty of Robert Baruch Bush's research on ethics is that his conclusions grow out of the real life experiences of mediators.' Yes, his interpretation is influenced by his own biases, and yes, the Florida mediation scene, where he made his observations, is not a microcosm of the rest of the nation or the world; nevertheless, in spite of these limitations, he did a remarkable job of capturing the dilemmas that most mediators face.


Easier Said Than Done: Resolving Ethical Dilemmas In Policy And Practice, Linda Stamato Jan 1994

Easier Said Than Done: Resolving Ethical Dilemmas In Policy And Practice, Linda Stamato

Journal of Dispute Resolution

This is not to argue against core principles. There is, I think, a consensus on these: responsible and fair dealing, disclosure of personal conflicts, good faith, diligence, impartiality, confidentiality, and, certainly, honesty and integrity. I take these ethical requirements to be the sine qua non of professional mediation practice; the primary representations to be made prior to, and, indeed, to be adhered to in the course of mediation. SPIDR attempted to codify these values in its Ethical Standards of Professional Responsibility, which were adopted by the SPIDR Board in 1986 and confirmed in 1991. What we in mediation practice are ...


Comparative Analysis Of Labor Mediation Using A Bargaining Strength Model, Alvin L. Goldman Jan 1994

Comparative Analysis Of Labor Mediation Using A Bargaining Strength Model, Alvin L. Goldman

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

The comparison of different legal systems offers a number of analytical and research advantages, one of which is that it provides a laboratory for observing differences and similarities in the ways in which common regulatory and dispute resolution models operate in similar and dissimilar environments. This Essay uses that laboratory to illustrate how the bargaining strength model presented in Settling for More: Mastering Negotiation Strategies and Techniques can be applied in analyzing mediatory interventions and provide a better understanding of (a) how such interventions can be utilized most effectively, (b) when they are useful, (c) when they are superfluous, and ...

Ethical Considerations In Medicaid Estate Planning: An Analysis Of The Aba Model Rules Of Professional Conduct, Eleanor Crosby Lanier, Ira M. Leff

Scholarly Works

The purpose of this article is to provide a starting point for discussion of ethical issues related to the practice of Medicaid estate planning. The authors explore the history of attorney involvement in planning and financing long-term care. They also analyze how the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct address the ethical dilemmas that arise in practice, using a case study to illustrate some of these issues. The individual authors' perspectives on this practice differ with respect to certain issues. One is a former Legal Services lawyer, and the other has a private practice which focuses on Medicaid estate planning.

Turning And Turning In The Widening Gyre: The Problem Of Potential Conflicts Of Interest In Bankruptcy, Nancy B. Rapoport Jan 1994

Turning And Turning In The Widening Gyre: The Problem Of Potential Conflicts Of Interest In Bankruptcy, Nancy B. Rapoport

Scholarly Works

This article is the first in a series of articles discussing the problem of conflicts of interest in bankruptcy cases. It argues that the traditional means for discovering and handling conflicts of interest - based on state-law ethics rules - fundamentally misconceives the problem in a bankruptcy context. State law ethics rules presume that the parties are always in static positions; in bankruptcy law, alliances shift all the time. The article proposes a possible method of handling potential conflicts of interest in bankruptcy cases.

The State Interest In The Good Citizen: Constitutional Balance Between The Citizen And The Perfectionist State, Steve Sheppard Dec 1993

The State Interest In The Good Citizen: Constitutional Balance Between The Citizen And The Perfectionist State, Steve Sheppard

Steve Sheppard

Judges must have flexibility when responding to the changing norms of justice in society, but they must also maintain predictability to enhance the cultural acceptance of the Court’s authority and the authority of law in society. Predictability demands that a rationale for each decision be communicated by the authors of opinions so that it can be replicable by other courts.

The debate over a preferred method of adjudication, balancing or categorical, is moot because the two methods are not mutually exclusive. The important issue is the definition of interests to be promoted or discouraged by law, which must also ...
