American Legion V. American Humanist Association, Seth T. Bonilla Oct 2019

American Legion V. American Humanist Association, Seth T. Bonilla

Public Land & Resources Law Review

The separation of church and state is a key element of American democracy, but its interpretation has been challenged as the country grows more diverse. In American Legion v. American Humanist Association, the Supreme Court adopted a new standard to analyze whether a religious symbol on public land maintained by public funding violated the Constitution’s Establishment Clause.


A Patent Reformist Supreme Court And Its Unearthed Precedent, Samuel F. Ernst Jan 2019

A Patent Reformist Supreme Court And Its Unearthed Precedent, Samuel F. Ernst

Fordham Intellectual Property, Media and Entertainment Law Journal

How is it that the Supreme Court, a generalist court, is leading a project of innovation reform in our times while the court of appeals established to encourage innovation is having its precedent stricken down time and again? This decade the Supreme Court has issued far more patent law decisions than in any decade since the passage of the Patent Act of 1952. In doing so, the Supreme Court has overruled the Federal Circuit in roughly threequarters of the patent cases in which the Supreme Court has issued opinions. In most of these cases, the Supreme Court has established rules …

State V. Eighth Judicial Dist. Court, 134 Nev. Adv. Op. 13 (Mar. 1, 2018) (En Banc), Connor Saphire

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court determined that when the State conducts a direct-examination of a witness during a preliminary hearing, and then the defendant waives his right to that preliminary hearing, the defendant is said to have had an “adequate opportunity” to confront that witness as long as adequate discovery was available.

Histories Of The Red Cross, Ian C. Willis

Ian Willis

The Australian Red Cross Society is part of one of the world's most important humanitarian organisations. It has provided relief in times of crisis for 100 years. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent movement has seven guiding principles: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. The origins of the movement are located in mid-nineteenth century Europe; now it comprises around 190 national societies, including Australia's, which was founded in 1914. This year marked a global first for Australia ‒ it held an inaugural conference, Histories of the Red Cross Movement: Continuity and Change, for historians, archivists, curators …

Ministering Angels, The Camden District Red Cross, 1914-1945, Ian Willis Oct 2015

Ministering Angels, The Camden District Red Cross, 1914-1945, Ian Willis

Ian Willis

Ministering Angels is the story of conservative country women doing their patriotic duty in an outpost of the British Empire. From 1914 Camden district women joined local Red Cross branches and their affiliates in the towns and villages around the colonial estate of the Macarthur family at Camden Park. They sewed, knitted and cooked for God, King and Country throughout the First and Second World Wars, and the years in-between. They ran stalls and raffles, and received considerable community support through cash donations from individuals and community organisations.

Using the themes of soldier and civilian welfare, patriotism, duty, sacrifice, motherhood, …


Principles And Practice For The Equitable Governance Of Transboundary Natural Resources: Cross-Cutting Lessons For Marine Fisheries Management, Brooke M. Campbell, Quentin A. Hanich Jan 2015

Principles And Practice For The Equitable Governance Of Transboundary Natural Resources: Cross-Cutting Lessons For Marine Fisheries Management, Brooke M. Campbell, Quentin A. Hanich

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

Conflicts over the equitability of transboundary natural resource conservation and management schemes have created barriers to effective policy implementation and practice. In seeking to overcome these barriers in the context of progressing transboundary oceanic fisheries conservation, we explore the divide between equity as defined in principle and as applied in practice in international policy and law. Searching for cross-cutting lessons and themes, we first review multilateral environmental agreements to see how equity is commonly being defined, understood, and then applied in principle. From this analysis, we identify common elements that can facilitate the conceptual framing and application of equitable principles …

Cross, Crucifix, Culture: An Approach To The Constitutional Meaning Of Confessional Symbols, Frederick Mark Gedicks, Pasquale Annicchino Feb 2014

Cross, Crucifix, Culture: An Approach To The Constitutional Meaning Of Confessional Symbols, Frederick Mark Gedicks, Pasquale Annicchino

Frederick Mark Gedicks

In the United States and Europe the constitutionality of government displays of confessional symbols depends on whether the symbols also have nonconfessional secular meaning (in the U.S.) or whether the confessional meaning is somehow absent (in Europe). Yet both the United States Supreme Court (USSCt) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) lack a workable approach to determining whether secular meaning is present or confessional meaning absent. The problem is that the government can nearly always articulate a possible secular meaning for the confessional symbols that it uses, or argue that the confessional meaning is passive and ineffective. What …

Cross, Crucifix, Culture: An Approach To The Constitutional Meaning Of Confessional Symbols, Frederick Mark Gedicks, Pasquale Annicchino

Faculty Scholarship

In the United States and Europe the constitutionality of government displays of confessional symbols depends on whether the symbols also have nonconfessional secular meaning (in the U.S.) or whether the confessional meaning is at least absent (in Europe). Yet both the United States Supreme Court (USSCt) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) lack a workable approach to determining whether secular meaning is present or confessional meaning absent.

The problem is that the government can nearly always articulate a possible secular meaning for the confessional symbols that it uses, or argue that the confessional meaning is passive and ineffective. …

Creative Praxis And Cross-Cultural Research, Sukhmani Khorana

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

This article theorises the process of conducting and exhibiting cross-cultural research through a particular kind of creative praxis, a hybrid visual essay. Beginning with a model for understanding such a visual form, I then go on to detail the pre-production, production and post-production stages. This helps comprehend the potential cross-cultural impact of the chosen methodology, as well as the consequences of various production choices. The article ends with an overview of the impact of the screenings of the visual essay.

Selling Land And Religion, Eang Ngov Mar 2012

Selling Land And Religion, Eang Ngov

Eang Ngov

Selling Land and Religion Eang L. Ngov* ABSTRACT Thousands of religious monuments have been donated to cities and towns.

Drawing from Establishment Clause jurisprudence involving religious displays, this Article utilizes the Lemon and endorsement tests as analytical tools for resolving the constitutionality of land dispositions involving religious displays. The government purpose for disposing of the religious object and surrounding land have been premised on preserving the religious object as a memorial or …

Selling Land And Religion, Eang L. Ngov Jan 2012

Selling Land And Religion, Eang L. Ngov

Faculty Scholarship

Thousands of religious monuments have been donated to cities and towns. Under Pleasant Grove City v. Summum, local, state, and federal governments now have greater freedom to accept religious monuments, symbols, and objects donated to them for permanent display in public spaces without violating the Free Speech Clause. Now that governments may embrace religious monuments and symbols as their own speech, the obvious question arises whether governments violate the Establishment Clause by permanently displaying a religiously significant object. Fearing an Establishment Clause violation, some governmental bodies have privatized religious objects and the land beneath them by selling or transferring the …

There But For The Grace Of God Go I: The Right Of Cross-Examination In Social Security Disability Hearings, Bradley S. Dixon Jun 2009

There But For The Grace Of God Go I: The Right Of Cross-Examination In Social Security Disability Hearings, Bradley S. Dixon

Missouri Law Review

The Eighth Circuit directly addressed this issue in Passmore v. Astrue and joined the group of circuits that follow the "qualified right" approach, which maintains that a social security claimant does not have an absolute right to cross-examine reporting physicians. In doing so, however, the Eighth Circuit relied on long-held assumptions, and its judgment may warrant re-evaluation to ensure that the rights of social security claimants are best protected. The circuit split on this issue is reflective of competing values that are practically inevitable in light of the tension between efficiency and justice, and both approaches will be evaluated in …

From Empire To Europe: Evolving British Policy In Respect Of Cross-Border Crime, Clive Harfield Jan 2007

From Empire To Europe: Evolving British Policy In Respect Of Cross-Border Crime, Clive Harfield

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

The second half of the twentieth century witnessed the metamorphosis of Britain from a global, imperial power to a full (if sometimes ambivalent) member of the modern regional partnership that is the European Union (EU). During the same period, transnational criminal activity was transformed from an arena in which criminal fugitives sought merely to evade domestic justice through self-imposed exile to an environment in which improved travel and communication facilities enabled criminals to commute between national jurisdictions to commit crime or to participate in global criminal enterprises run along modern business lines. This development is so serious that it is …
