State Criminal Laws Could Be A Light In The Dark For The Hidden Victims Of Forced Marriage, Rebekah Marcarelli May 2023

State Criminal Laws Could Be A Light In The Dark For The Hidden Victims Of Forced Marriage, Rebekah Marcarelli

Journal of Civil Rights and Economic Development

(Excerpt)

“There’s something you need to know about me . . . I am dead,” said Fraidy Reiss, a survivor of an abusive forced marriage, as she stood alone on a stage, speaking to a crowd. “I know what you’re thinking, [I don’t] look particularly dead . . . you might want to tell that to my family [because] they declared me dead almost thirteen years ago.”

Reiss, who founded the organization Unchained at Last to help forced marriage victims like herself, grew up in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn. Right after finishing high school, Reiss was asked to …


Healthcare Inequities In The United States And Beyond Are Taking Black Women’S Lives, Alichia Mcintosh Apr 2023

Healthcare Inequities In The United States And Beyond Are Taking Black Women’S Lives, Alichia Mcintosh

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

Black women have been dying at devastating rates due to health complications at the hands of the United States’ healthcare and legal systems. This Note explores these distressing rates and how they compare to White women while analyzing the fatalities and diagnoses among several health complications and diseases. These fatalities persist due to the United States’ history of racism—such as the institution of slavery and over 100 years of Black bodies experiencing Jim Crow laws—and the socioeconomic disadvantages Black women disproportionally face. This Note emphasizes that these disparities continue because the United States has failed to implement treaties—which it is …

Long Live Joint Criminal Enterprise: With A Particular Reference To Tadić’S Interactive Construction Between “The Beast” And Specific Direction, Miguel Ângelo Loureiro Manero De Lemos Dec 2022

Long Live Joint Criminal Enterprise: With A Particular Reference To Tadić’S Interactive Construction Between “The Beast” And Specific Direction, Miguel Ângelo Loureiro Manero De Lemos

San Diego International Law Journal

The idea that Joint Criminal Enterprise, in particular its extended version, contravenes fundamental principles of criminal law has gained track. Thus, not only did the International Criminal Court distance itself from the construct but, today, the widely held view is that the extended version should be discarded, not least because it is not grounded in customary international law. This Article challenges that view. While addressing scholarly criticism towards Joint Criminal Enterprise, and demonstrating why the “beast” is a solid construction, it argues that prosecutors and judges must look past the written provisions of the Statute of the International Criminal Court …


‘I Will Control Your Mind’: The International Regulation Of Brain-Hacking, Thibault Moulin Dec 2022

‘I Will Control Your Mind’: The International Regulation Of Brain-Hacking, Thibault Moulin

San Diego International Law Journal

In the near future, the use of neurotechnologies—like brain-computer interfaces and brain stimulation—could become widespread. It will not only be used to help persons with disabilities or illness, but also by members of the armed forces and in everyday life (e.g., for entertainment and gaming). However, recent studies suggested that it is possible to hack into neural devices to obtain information, inflict pain, induce mood change, or influence movements. This Article anticipates three scenarios which may be challenging in the future—i.e., brain hacking for the purpose of reading thoughts, remotely controlling someone, and inflicting pain or death—and assesses their compliance …


"Keep To The Code”: A Global Code Of Conduct For Third-Party Funders, Victoria Sahani Dec 2022

"Keep To The Code”: A Global Code Of Conduct For Third-Party Funders, Victoria Sahani

Faculty Scholarship

Global commercial third-party funding has given rise to wide-ranging regulatory approaches worldwide. Consequently, funders can engage in cross-border regulatory arbitrage by exploiting regulatory gaps within and among nations. This Article argues that the global community of nations should articulate a universal approach to the behavioral expectations of third-party funders operating transnationally, independent of local laws regarding the technical business of funding. It asserts that the key to fostering the ethical development of the third-party funding industry is to develop a globally applicable but locally enforced code of conduct or professional responsibility for the industry. Moreover, a successful regime for funder …

Viagra Did Not Work, But Michael Jordan Still Made It: Trademark Policy Toward The Translation Of Foreign Marks In China, Jyh-An Lee, Lili Yang Aug 2022

Viagra Did Not Work, But Michael Jordan Still Made It: Trademark Policy Toward The Translation Of Foreign Marks In China, Jyh-An Lee, Lili Yang

Duke Law & Technology Review

Most multinational enterprises (MNEs) register their original trademarks in Roman letters in China upon entering the Chinese market. However, many fail to develop and register corresponding Chinese marks because they do not understand local culture and consumers, overvalue consumers’ presumed brand loyalty, or neglect the accompanying trademark issues. This failure enables trademark squatters to register and hold the Chinese marks for ransom or local competitors to free ride on foreign marks using their Chinese translations or transliterations. This Article first introduces the complexity of translating a foreign mark into Chinese, which concerns complex linguistic, cultural, and business challenges. Based on …


Space And Existential Risk: The Need For Global Coordination And Caution In Space Development, Chase Hamilton Aug 2022

Space And Existential Risk: The Need For Global Coordination And Caution In Space Development, Chase Hamilton

Duke Law & Technology Review

This Article examines urgent risks resulting from outer space activities under the current space law regime. Emerging literature alarmingly predicts that the risk of a catastrophe that ends the human species this century is approximately 10–25%. Continued space development may increase, rather than decrease, overall existential risk due in part to crucial and identifiable market failures. Addressing these shortcomings should take priority over the competing commercial, scientific, and geopolitical interests that currently dominate in space policy. Sensible changes, including shifting space into a closed-access commons as envisioned by the 1979 Moon Treaty, may help in achieving existential security.


Inaction As A State Response To The Coronavirus Outbreak: Unconstitutionality By Omission, Antonios Kouroutakis Jul 2022

Inaction As A State Response To The Coronavirus Outbreak: Unconstitutionality By Omission, Antonios Kouroutakis

Seattle University Law Review SUpra

The World Health Organization on March 11 declared the novel coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. While the pandemic was spreading across the globe, governments were under pressure to respond. Still, some countries during the first wave of the pandemic, in their first reaction, did not put in place any emergency regulations. Such reaction, which was a policy option, was an intended omission as lawmakers and policy makers decided not to take action and such emergency omission was a novelty and a paradox in emergency situations. Moreover, I argue that during emergencies governments have a distinct duty to act, and I offer …

International Application Of Cfaa: Scraping Data Or Scraping Law?, King Fung Tsang Jan 2022

International Application Of Cfaa: Scraping Data Or Scraping Law?, King Fung Tsang

Saint Louis University Law Journal

Web scraping has resulted in a growing number of civil litigations internationally, including claims under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (“CFAA”) in the United States. With the Supreme Court’s first ever decision on the CFAA, in Van Buren v. United States, and its granting of LinkedIn’s petition for certiorari in June 2021, the CFAA is expected to attract even more interest among scholars and practitioners. However, little attention has been given to its cross-border ramifications. Cases show that U.S. courts are more than willing to apply the CFAA extraterritorially, even though their analyses are often flawed. In addition, …


Diplomatic Impact In The Stars? A Review Of The Impact Of The Artemis Accords On Global Relationships, Joshua Lee, Elsbeth J. Magilton 4721662, Amelia Ruffolo Jan 2022

Diplomatic Impact In The Stars? A Review Of The Impact Of The Artemis Accords On Global Relationships, Joshua Lee, Elsbeth J. Magilton 4721662, Amelia Ruffolo

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

This essay examines the near-term and possible long-range impacts of the Artemis Accords on our relationships to our allies and whether the accords amount to a significant narrative shift in international space relations. Per the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Accords “describe a shared vision for principles, grounded in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, to create a safe and transparent environment which facilitates exploration, science, and commercial activities for all of humanity to enjoy.” Many U.S. space allies have already signed, but do these accords truly strengthen our international relationships? Will they create a notable change in …


Recognizing A Fundamental Right To A Clean Environment: Why The Juliana Court Got It Wrong And How To Address The Issue Moving Forward, Robert Kemper Jan 2022

Recognizing A Fundamental Right To A Clean Environment: Why The Juliana Court Got It Wrong And How To Address The Issue Moving Forward, Robert Kemper

FIU Law Review

As the existential threat of climate change becomes increasingly prevalent, U.S. plaintiffs, lawyers, and activists have begun seeking redress in federal courts arguing for recognition of a constitutional right to a clean environment. Recently, in Juliana v. United States, the Ninth Circuit explicitly recognized the grave threat of climate change for the health, well-being, and security of the American people and the nation as a whole. Additionally, the court found that the U.S. government has contributed to climate change through both inaction and policy decisions that promote the use of fossil fuels. The plaintiffs claimed that they had a constitutional …

The Ila Study Group On The Role Of Cities In International Law City Report: Windsor, Christopher Waters Sep 2021

The Ila Study Group On The Role Of Cities In International Law City Report: Windsor, Christopher Waters

Law Publications

Windsor, Ontario is a border city. Windsor sits opposite Detroit, Michigan on the Detroit River, along the Canada-US boundary. Although this is a city report on Windsor, it is impossible to describe the border experience without the centrality of Detroit to Windsor’s self-perception or role in city diplomacy. The border region is integrated economically, culturally and through interpersonal relations. Despite these ties and the obvious potential for transnational sensibility, neither Windsor - nor its big cousin across the Detroit River - has sought a prominent role as international actors. The governance links between the cities are low-key and informal.


The Determination Of Applicable Law In International Commercial Arbitration, Dr. Obaid Saqer Busit Apr 2021

The Determination Of Applicable Law In International Commercial Arbitration, Dr. Obaid Saqer Busit

UAEU Law Journal

Arbitration as means of settling commercial disputes between parties of different nationalities has been a popular and successful alternative to national court proceedings. Moreover, arbitration allows the parties to choose the applicable law governing their agreement. International arbitral rules generally allow the parties to an arbitration agreement to choose the substantive law that will govern the dispute. 1 However, this right of choice of applicable law involves various elements, one of the most troublesome of which is the choice of substantive law to be applied in a given dispute. An arbitrator is bound to reach a decision in accordance with …


Criminalizing Terrorism Funding: "A Study In The Jordanian Legal System", Abdulellah Mohammed Alnawayseh Mar 2021

Criminalizing Terrorism Funding: "A Study In The Jordanian Legal System", Abdulellah Mohammed Alnawayseh

UAEU Law Journal

Terrorism Funds considered as modern issue which has been given an important attention by the international community in particular after the adoption of the international convention on the suppression of the financing of terrorism in 1999 and the security council resolution number 1373 dated 28 September 2001 which came after the 11th September attacks. This resolution has forced the UN members to criminalize terrorism funds and money laundry.

Jordanhas ratified this convention by adopting legislation number 83 in 2003, and criminized bank activities which are related to terrorist activities in paragraph 2 article 147 from the criminal code. This …

The Security Council Powers In Light Of The Peremptory Norms Doctrine, Mohammed Khalil Al Mousa Mar 2021

The Security Council Powers In Light Of The Peremptory Norms Doctrine, Mohammed Khalil Al Mousa

UAEU Law Journal

The main objective of this article is the limitations of the Security Council powers regarding its primary responsibility of maintaining international peace and security. The current article focuses on the possibility of applying the jus cogens norms doctrine (peremptory norms) to the Security Council decisions adopted in accordance with chapter vii of the United Nations charter. International peremptory norms are applied to international agreements and treaties, and this research proposes to extend the application of these norms to the Security Council decisions. If one of these decisions was in conflict with international peremptory norms, it will be void ab initio …


The International Protection Of Water And Water Resources In Times Of Armed Conflict, Rokaya Awasharih Feb 2021

The International Protection Of Water And Water Resources In Times Of Armed Conflict, Rokaya Awasharih

UAEU Law Journal

International and non- international armed conflicts have witnessed the use of water as a weapon in order to reverse the battle balance by combating parties. Aggressive acts were turned towards water resources and its equipment. Therefore, dams, water reservoirs, and energy generation centres were attacked. Besides water resources were poisoned by throwing cadavers in rivers and lakes which has led to a number of dead. This latter has surpassed the one killed in fighting acts.

So we will try through this study to shed light on the protection systems designed for water and water resources during armed conflict. We will …


Cyber And Tria: Expanding The Definition Of An "Act Of Terrorism" To Include Cyber Attacks, Nehal Patel Feb 2021

Cyber And Tria: Expanding The Definition Of An "Act Of Terrorism" To Include Cyber Attacks, Nehal Patel

Duke Law & Technology Review

The 9/11 terrorist attacks brought on financial losses that caused insurers and Congress to reevaluate how the United States approaches terrorism risk coverage. Congress quelled concerns of insurers evading coverage of future terrorist attacks by enacting the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act in 2002. This Note considers the difficulties presented by the out-of-date language employed by Congress in 2002 and proposes amendments so that the Act more clearly covers acts of cyberterrorism, which are ever-growing in their destructive potential.


Internet Law, Taleb Hassan Musa, Omar Mahmoud Aamer Feb 2021

Internet Law, Taleb Hassan Musa, Omar Mahmoud Aamer

UAEU Law Journal

This paper aims to illustrate the basis of cyberspace law and its potential environment. Indeed, the laws governing the cyberspace are still premature at both national and international levels. This is due to the undefined nature of cyber borders that globalize the Internet in contradiction with the geographic borders. Hence, individual countries are losing part of their sovereignty as result of globalization of the internet to a point it is becoming a borderless space with no laws and regulations. This urges to agree on new international legislations to handle any acts that are not confined by geographical borders or any …


International Cooperation In Combating Modern Forms Of Maritime Piracy, Hanan Malaeb Feb 2021

International Cooperation In Combating Modern Forms Of Maritime Piracy, Hanan Malaeb

UAEU Law Journal

Maritime piracy has increased since 2008, posing a real threat to the international peace and security. Therefore, many voices criticized the international legal legislations related to maritime piracy and accused them of being incapable of dealing with this widening phenomenon, being very limited to a few articles contained in the United Nations Convention for the law of seas of 1982. That criticism necessitated to study all the international legislations related to piracy, which were issued before and after 2008. As a result, we noticed that all the international conventions related to the sea and the international resolutions issued by the …
