Reforming Disability Nondiscrimination Laws: A Comparative Perspective, Stanley S. Herr Dec 2001

Reforming Disability Nondiscrimination Laws: A Comparative Perspective, Stanley S. Herr

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Comparing the law and policies of other countries concerning disability rights to ours can help us understand how we may strengthen those rights and heighten compliance with nondiscrimination laws. Since it took effect in 1992, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been a leading example of such comprehensive legislation on behalf of people with disabilities. Along with the United Nations Standard Rules on Equalization of Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities, the ADA has inspired many countries to develop their own disability nondiscrimination laws and remedial agencies. This process must work in both directions, however, and laws and agencies from ...

Corporate Distributions To Shareholders In Delaware And In Israel, Anat Urman

LLM Theses and Essays

This thesis considers the corporate legal systems of Israel and Delaware as they address the subject of corporate distributions to shareholders.

International Red Cross Must Include Israel, Kenneth Lasson Nov 2001

International Red Cross Must Include Israel, Kenneth Lasson

All Faculty Scholarship

Israel's corresponding relief agency, the Mogen David Adom, has provided emergency services to countries all over the world since 1939, and it meets or surpasses every other standard for IFRC membership. Yet Israel remains the only nation left out of the 178- country federation. Why?

An IFRC spokesman says that it is "governments, not the federation, that give emblems the protective force of international law," and that "governments" are preparing to adopt an additional emblem, with no religious or national connotations, to stand alongside the Red Cross and the Red Crescent, one that Israel could adopt as its own ...

An Oasis Or Just A Mirage: The Jericho Casino And The Future Of The Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process, Edward B. Miller Jan 2001

An Oasis Or Just A Mirage: The Jericho Casino And The Future Of The Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process, Edward B. Miller

Richmond Journal of Global Law & Business

More than seven years have passed since the signing of the historic peace agreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (“P.L.O.”). While the final borders and powers of a Palestinian State are still being discussed by the parties to the agreement, the fact of Palestinian autonomy is an irreversible reality. As such, the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip has slowly been giving way to a self-governing Palestinian body which now administers most of the territories and nearly all of the Palestinian who reside therein.

Michigan Journal of Gender & Law

Discussion of the newly enacted law will outline the theoretical underpinnings and their effect on the resultant version (Part III), followed by the legislative history, including the Knesset and the public debate surrounding the bill (Part IV), and the impact of that debate on the final outcome of the law (Part V). Part VI will pay particular attention to the innovative approach of the law as a whole and some of the revolutionary specific provisions within. In particular, the legislative framework will be considered in the context of a nation founded and conducted on traditional religious tenets of Judaism. Finally ...
