A Teoria Do Contrato No Paradigma Constitucional, Lucas Abreu Barroso Dec 2012

A Teoria Do Contrato No Paradigma Constitucional, Lucas Abreu Barroso

Lucas Abreu Barroso

The transition from the rule of law to the constitutional state resulted in the neoconstitutionalist model guided by the protection of fundamental rights. Indeed, civil law and its traditional institutions were conditioned by the public penetration in the private relations. The constitutionalization of civil law presupposes the existential dimension as the core of civil law, which is now concerned with the values emanated from the being in the political community. Therefore, it is necessary to have a reformulation of the concept of subject of rights in the way of a substantive equality as a legitimizing reason of civil law. The ...

Tort Arbitrage, Robert J. Rhee Nov 2012

Tort Arbitrage, Robert J. Rhee

Florida Law Review

The economic models of bargaining and tort law have not been integrated into a coherent theory that reflects the empirical world. This Article models the interaction of settlement dynamics and the economic theory of negligence. It shows that tort claims are systematically devalued during settlement relative to the legal standard. Central to this thesis is aproper conception and accounting of cost. Cost is typically viewed as the transaction cost of litigation processing. Cost, however, encompasses more than this. Each dispute has a cost of resolution, defined as the discounting effect of risk on legal valuation. A spread between the parties ...


(Do) We Need A European Civil Code (?), David Schmid Nov 2012

(Do) We Need A European Civil Code (?), David Schmid

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

The paper will first explain the historical developments that may one day support a European Civil Code. Next, it will examine other options available to reach the goal of unification and will then give an overview of the problems concerning the competence of the European Union for a European Civil Code. Arguments for both the critics and the supporters of the implementation of such a Code will be examined. Finally, this paper will try to develop options for further proceedings and will end with a conclusion of the findings.

Toward A Legal Theory Of Finance, Katharina Pistor Nov 2012

Toward A Legal Theory Of Finance, Katharina Pistor

Katharina Pistor

This paper develops the building blocks for a legal theory of finance. LTF holds that financial markets are legally constructed and as such occupy an essentially hybrid place between state and market, public and private. At the same time, financial markets exhibit dynamics that frequently put them in direct tension with commitments enshrined in law or contracts. This is the case especially in times of financial crises when the full enforcement of legal commitments would result in the self-destruction of the financial system. This law-finance paradox tends to be resolved by suspending the full force of law where the survival ...

The Law Of Indicators On Women’S Human Rights: Unmet Promises And Global Challenges, Marta Infantino Oct 2012

The Law Of Indicators On Women’S Human Rights: Unmet Promises And Global Challenges, Marta Infantino

Marta Infantino

Global indicators on human rights (HRs) aim to measure HRs scores against HRs standards. In other words, they aim to measure legal phenomena against legal benchmarks.

Despite HRs indicators’ reliance on legal knowledge, lawyers have so far neither made substantial contributions to their production, nor studied in depth the legal implications of their uses. The current state-of-the-art in the world of HRs indicators is the result of an ongoing process led by bureaucrats, economists, statisticians, and activists with limited legal training. It is these actors who are developing a new body of professional knowledge, and a new technology of governance ...

Fugitives In Immigration: A Call For Legislative Guidelines On Disentitlement, Kiran H. Griffith Oct 2012

Fugitives In Immigration: A Call For Legislative Guidelines On Disentitlement, Kiran H. Griffith

Seattle University Law Review

In light of Supreme Court jurisprudence regarding the fugitive disentitlement doctrine, the circuit courts of appeal have readily expanded the doctrine’s use to civil matters, as well as immigration. But the Supreme Court’s nuanced treatment of the rationales underlying this doctrine, specifically in Ortega-Rodriguez v. United States and Degen v. United States, has led to inconsistent application across the circuits. Specifically, a split has arisen among the Second, Fifth, Seventh, and Ninth Circuits as to whether these rationales support invocation of the fugitive disentitlement doctrine to find fugitivity and dismiss an alien’s petition for review when an ...


The Right To Publicity After Death: Postmortem Personality Rights In The Wake Of Experiencehendrix V. Hendrixlicensing.Com, Aubrie Hicks Oct 2012

The Right To Publicity After Death: Postmortem Personality Rights In The Wake Of Experiencehendrix V. Hendrixlicensing.Com, Aubrie Hicks

Seattle University Law Review

While the states are fairly consistent in protecting the rights of living individuals, the level of protection for deceased celebrities varies among the states. Some states allow the right to extend beyond death, while others refuse to recognize a postmortem right of publicity. Even among states that do recognize a postmortem right of publicity, the right is protected to varying degrees, with some states providing explicit statutory protections and others providing only common law protections. Given the inconsistencies among the states, the continuing right to publicity after death has been the subject of much litigation over the last few years ...


A Case Study On Burying Alive Of Two Women In Balochistan, Sohail Ahmed Ansari Advocate Oct 2012

A Case Study On Burying Alive Of Two Women In Balochistan, Sohail Ahmed Ansari Advocate

Sohail Ahmed Ansari Advocate

Violence against women is present in a variety of forms in Pakistan. From domestic abuse & sexual harassment to child marriages and honour killing; a range of anti-women atrocities are carried out. Pakistani women face systematic discrimination from the day they are born. The patriarchal mindset of society refuses to recognize them as human beings deserving of equality, human rights and justice. Unfortunately in some parts of Balochistan a brutal custom of justice prevails; where the women are treated as trading objects. They are being tried without hearing their cause. They are not allowed to plea their case. They are not even allowed to witness the murder trial being ...
