Religion / State: Where The Separation Lies, Vincent Samar Jan 2016

Religion / State: Where The Separation Lies, Vincent Samar

Vincent Samar

The article traces the history of the establishment clause including various court tests that have been used to interpret it, discusses various contemporary justifications for the clause, and culls from those justifications why the “accommodationist” approach sometimes used by the Court must be rejected.

I then introduce the ethical Doctrine of Double Effect to reconsider other tests the Court has applied (total separation, endorsement, neutrality and coercion), ultimately to justify a new neutrality test that provides a clearer understanding of the principles behind non-establishment. I show how the new neutrality test could be used in resolving future cases, for example, …


Render Less Unto Caesar?: Denying Communion To Catholic Judges, Dermot Lynch Dec 2012

Render Less Unto Caesar?: Denying Communion To Catholic Judges, Dermot Lynch

Dermot Lynch

A conservative group of Catholic bishops who seek to deny communion to those who support abortion rights has thus far only targeted pro-choice Catholic public officials and the Catholic voters who have supported them electorally. Yet the movement could as easily act against Catholic judges, including at least three prominent Catholics on the Supreme Court. Yet judges should not be denied communion for the same reason that the sacrament should not be denied to voters or legislators, namely because the standard that the communion denial movement uses in applying this grave sanction is deeply problematic as it invites arbitrary enforcement …


Στοίχημα Η Διαφύλαξη Των Εργασιακών Σχέσεων, Nicos Trimikliniotis Dec 2012

Στοίχημα Η Διαφύλαξη Των Εργασιακών Σχέσεων, Nicos Trimikliniotis

Nicos Trimikliniotis

Η σημερινή κατάσταση στην εργασία και απασχόληση με τα πρωτοφανή για τα Κυπριακά δεδομένα ποσοστά ανεργίας είναι εξαιρετικά δύσκολη. Παρά τις σημαντικές μεταρρυθμίσεις, π.χ. ο νόμος για τη διασφάλιση του δικαιώματος συνδικαλιστικής οργάνωσης και για εκσυγχρονισμό των εργασιακών σχέσεων κ.ά. το σύστημα εργασιακών σχέσεων σήμερα αντιμετωπίζει τις μεγαλύτερες προκλήσεις μετά το 1974. Το σύστημα συλλογικών διαπραγματεύσεων και συλλογικών συμβάσεων, η συνδικαλιστική προστασία και διεκδίκηση έχουν δημιουργήσει ένα επιτυχημένο πλαίσιο. Τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά του είναι το υψηλό επίπεδο συνδικαλιστικής πυκνότητας, οι συλλογικές διαπραγματεύσεις και συμβάσεις και η Αυτόματη τιμαριθμική αναπροσαρμογή (ΑΤΑ) που αποτελούν αποτελεσματικά μέσα αποφυγής ανούσιων εργασιακών συγκρούσεων διασφαλίζοντας τουλάχιστον …


Confiscación Sobre El Producto Indirecto Del Delito En El Sistema De Prevención Del Lavado De Activos / Confiscation Of Indirect Proceeds Of Crime In The Anti-Money Laundering Legal Framework, Tadeo Leandro Fernandez Dec 2012

Confiscación Sobre El Producto Indirecto Del Delito En El Sistema De Prevención Del Lavado De Activos / Confiscation Of Indirect Proceeds Of Crime In The Anti-Money Laundering Legal Framework, Tadeo Leandro Fernandez

Tadeo Leandro Fernandez

The aim of this paper is to describe the international recommendations on prevention of money laundering about confiscation of the proceeds of crime, in particular the indirect proceeds. In that sense, for this purpose we propose to use the term confiscation as a generic of forfeiture, restitution, damage repair, and reset to the previous state, i.e. we include forfeiture rules (Section 23 and 305) and damage repair (Title IV of Book I) of the Criminal Code and we also note national case law that share this idea. Last, we conclude that current Argentine system allows confiscating the direct and indirect …


Localizing Climate Change Action, Marianne Dellinger Dec 2012

Localizing Climate Change Action - abstract

Myanna Dellinger

Waiting for national- or supranational-level actors to take substantively effective action against climate change is like waiting for Godot: unlikely to happen, at least at a substantively early enough point in time. The December 2012 negotiations under the UNFCCC umbrella yet again demonstrated the failure of action at the international level. This article adds new value to existing scholarship by conducting original research into select climate initiatives at the subnational, substate level in order to find out whether it is worth pursuing climate change action at this level instead. The article posits …


Sex Ratio In Mumbai, Professor Vibhuti Patel Dec 2012

Sex Ratio In Mumbai, Professor Vibhuti Patel

Professor Vibhuti Patel

Gender equity has been a prominent aspect of equity concerns in public policy. The gender dimension has led to widespread advocacy and focused attention on equity in other than economic areas, such as education, health, decision-making, violence against women and political participation. The human development approach offers a capability-based approach to gender equity in development that is a departure from traditions focused on income and growth. Gender concerns have given the approach the power and flexibility to encompass aspects of inequality that would otherwise go unremarked. Its sensitivity to gender in turn has made it sensitive to a range of …

La Industria Del Libro 3.0 Y J.K. Rowling, Rodolfo C. Rivas Rea Esq., Maria Alejandra Lopez Garcia Esq.

Rodolfo C. Rivas

The authors provide a brief overview of what could be called the 3.0 version of the book industry. Under the 3.0 book industry, the author’s role in exploiting their creations has to embrace new and creative business models, which may often come into conflict with publisher’s old business models. In the article, the authors take a look at the innovative business models implemented by J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Radiohead and Frank Ocean amongst others. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Los autores proporcionan una breve descripción de lo que podría llamarse la versión 3.0 de la industria del libro.

The New Due Process: Rights And Remedies, Doug R. Rendleman Dec 2012

The New Due Process: Rights And Remedies, Doug R. Rendleman

Doug Rendleman

This article discusses the "new" due process. Perhaps new is a misnomer. Due process was not discovered recently. It has been around a long time protecting varying interests from arbitrary action. The discovery called the "new" due process is merely that procedural protections are not so limited as previously thought. This article will examine the interests encompassed by the new due process and the remedial apparatus now being developed to protect those interests.


Chapters Of The Civil Jury, Doug R. Rendleman Dec 2012

Chapters Of The Civil Jury, Doug R. Rendleman

Doug Rendleman

The civil jury, though constitutionally protected by the seventh amendment, has remained a controversial institution throughout much of Anglo-American legal history. Our romantic ideals are questioned by critics who view the civil jury as prejudiced and unpredictable; proponents note the sense of fairness and "earthy wisdom" gained by community participation in the legal process. This debate surfaces in the process of accommodation between certain substantive goals of the law and the pre-verdict and post-verdict procedural devices courts have employed to control the jury. In this article, Professor Rendleman examines this conflict in his three "chapters" involving racially motivated discharges of …
