Rights And Duties Of Old People In Islam An Illustration Of The Security/ Insurance Systems In Saudi Arabia

Journal Sharia and Law

Islam has forereached the west in establishing the rights and duties of old people. This principle is considered, from an Islamic point of view, a means of devotion and worship to God that would achieve security of Muslims in their life and help them acquire god's contentment in the afterlife. Islam jurisprudence is based on bringing about utility and forcing out tribulations. The present study deals with the rights and duties of old people in Islam as stipulated in the Holy Quran and Sunnah. According to these two sources, old people are allowed to get involved in the retirement ...

Prisons, Nursing Homes, And Medicaid: A Covid-19 Case Study In Health Injustice, Mary Crossley 2021 University of Pittsburgh School of Law

Prisons, Nursing Homes, And Medicaid: A Covid-19 Case Study In Health Injustice, Mary Crossley

Articles

The unevenly distributed pain and suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic present a remarkable case study. Considering why the coronavirus has devastated some groups more than others offers a concrete example of abstract concepts like “structural discrimination” and “institutional racism,” an example measured in lives lost, families shattered, and unremitting anxiety. This essay highlights the experiences of Black people and disabled people, and how societal choices have caused them to experience the brunt of the pandemic. It focuses on prisons and nursing homes—institutions that emerged as COVID-19 hotspots –and on the Medicaid program.

Black and disabled people are disproportionately represented ...


The Impact Of Cultural Heritage On Japanese Towns And Villages, Yuichiro Tsuji Dr. 2020 University of Tsukuba

The Impact Of Cultural Heritage On Japanese Towns And Villages, Yuichiro Tsuji Dr.

Seattle Journal of Technology, Environmental & Innovation Law

In 1954, when historically significant clays and clay pots were found in the Iba district of Shizuoka prefecture, the city applied to the prefectural education committee for a historic site designation. The committee granted this designation to the city..

However, in 1973 the education committee lifted its permission to promote development around the location. Historians have sought revocation of this decision under the Administrative Case Litigation Act (ACLA), but the Supreme Court has denied standing. By denying standing, the Japanese Supreme Court allows the prefecture to destroy a historical site.

First, this paper seeks to discuss the doctrine of standing ...


The Role Of The Opioid Crisis In Elder Abuse, Kimberly I. Snow MHSA, Jennifer Pratt, Stuart Bratesman MPP 2020 University of Southern Maine, Cutler Institute

The Role Of The Opioid Crisis In Elder Abuse, Kimberly I. Snow Mhsa, Jennifer Pratt, Stuart Bratesman Mpp

Disability & Aging

As the opioid crisis has deepened over the past twenty years, its effect on individuals and families, including older adults, has grown. To find out how the opioid crisis might be impacting elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation in Maine, we conducted a mixed methods analysis of 2015-2018 Maine Adult Protective Services (APS) investigations to determine: 1) Did opioid-related investigations increase over time? 2) Do investigations involving opioid misuse or abuse differ from investigations that don’t involve opioids? 3) What themes or features of cases involving opioid misuse or abuse by clients and/or perpetrators emerge from the data?

Key ...


Enough Is As Good As A Feast, Noah C. Chauvin 2020 Seattle University School of Law

Enough Is As Good As A Feast, Noah C. Chauvin

Seattle University Law Review

Ipse Dixit, the podcast on legal scholarship, provides a valuable service to the legal community and particularly to the legal academy. The podcast’s hosts skillfully interview guests about their legal and law-related scholarship, helping those guests communicate their ideas clearly and concisely. In this review essay, I argue that Ipse Dixit has made a major contribution to legal scholarship by demonstrating in its interview episodes that law review articles are neither the only nor the best way of communicating scholarly ideas. This contribution should be considered “scholarship,” because one of the primary goals of scholarship is to communicate new ...

Blockchain Wills, Bridget J. Crawford 2020 Pace University School of Law

Blockchain Wills, Bridget J. Crawford

Indiana Law Journal

Blockchain technology has the potential to radically alter the way that people have

executed wills for centuries. This Article makes two principal claims—one

descriptive and the other normative. Descriptively, this Article suggests that

traditional wills formalities have been relaxed to the point that they no longer serve

the cautionary, protective, evidentiary, and channeling functions that scholars have

used to justify strict compliance with wills formalities. Widespread use of digital

technology in everyday communications has led to several notable cases in which

individuals have attempted to execute wills electronically. These wills have had a

mixed reception. Four states currently recognize ...


Emergency Parole Release For Older Parole-Eligible Doc Inmates, David I. Bruck 2020 Washington and Lee University School of Law

Emergency Parole Release For Older Parole-Eligible Doc Inmates, David I. Bruck

Scholarly Articles

Professor Bruck writes to Secretary Moran and Chairwoman Bennett to urge them to protect elderly Virginia prison inmates from the risk of death from COVID-19 by granting immediate parole release to as many over-60 parole-eligible prisoners as possible, upon a showing that they are at low risk to re-offend, and have a supportive home to go to once released.


Telehealth For An Aging Population: How Can Law Influence Adoption Among Providers, Payors, And Patients?, Tara Sklar, Christopher Robertson 2020 Boston University School of Law

Telehealth For An Aging Population: How Can Law Influence Adoption Among Providers, Payors, And Patients?, Tara Sklar, Christopher Robertson

Faculty Scholarship

Telehealth continues to experience substantial investment, innovation, and unprecedented growth. However, telehealth has been slow to transform healthcare. Recent developments in telehealth technologies suggest great potential for chronic care management, mental health services, and care delivery in the home—all of which should be particularly impactful for an aging population with physical and cognitive limitations. While this alignment of technological capacity and market demand is promising, legal barriers remain for telehealth operators to scale up across large geographic areas. To better understand how federal and state law can be reformed to enable greater telehealth utilization, we review and extract lessons ...

For A Sustainable Inclusive 21st Century: What We Must Learn From Japanese Eugenic Protection Act, Toru Furui, Masayo Furui

Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability & Diversity Proceedings

The COVID-19 pandemic clearly tells us that eugenics had not died with Nazi ideologies. Current COVID-19 discussions emphasize on ‘triage’ and ‘social distance,’ all of which impacts and continues to threaten the lives of people with disabilities, higher-risked, and aging populations. The current pandemic is a warning that we all must understand and mitigate our internalized eugenic ideology so that our 21st century will be sustainable and inclusive for all. Otherwise, we all will be at risk of being killed because we’ve reached society’s social-limited-age. In order to gain a better understanding society must become aware of historical ...


Me Too? The Invisible Older Victims Of Sexual Violence, Ruthy Lowenstein Lazar 2020 Columbia Law School

Me Too? The Invisible Older Victims Of Sexual Violence, Ruthy Lowenstein Lazar

Michigan Journal of Gender & Law

A review of legal research on violence against women and elder abuse reveals a disturbing picture. There is hardly any American legal research examining sexual abuse of older women and its conceptualization in legal literature and treatment in the legal system.

This Article attempts to fill the abovementioned gap and to bring the hidden issue of sexual violence against older women to light. Scholars writing on rape, violence against women, and elder abuse tend to analyze age and gendered sexual violence separately from each other, without accounting for their interplay. This Article proposes a conceptual framework of sexual abuse of ...
