Transforming Constitutional Doctrine Through Mandatory Appeals From Three-Judge District Courts: The Warren And Burger Courts And Their Contemporary Lessons, Michael E. Solimine 2025 University of Cincinnati College of Law

Transforming Constitutional Doctrine Through Mandatory Appeals From Three-Judge District Courts: The Warren And Burger Courts And Their Contemporary Lessons, Michael E. Solimine

Faculty Articles and Other Publications

Judicial interpretations of the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment underwent significant change, both expanding and retrenching in various ways, in Supreme Court doctrine during the Warren and Burger Courts. An underappreciated influence on the change is the method by which those cases reached the Court’s docket. A significant number of the cases reached the Court’s docket not by discretionary grants of writs of certiorari, as occurred in most other cases, but by mandatory appeals directly from three-judge district courts. This article makes several contributions regarding the important changes in these doctrines during the Warren Court …

Legal Ethics For Government Lawyers: Lessons From Nunavut, Andrew Flavelle Martin 2025 Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law

Legal Ethics For Government Lawyers: Lessons From Nunavut, Andrew Flavelle Martin

Articles, Book Chapters, & Popular Press

While government lawyers face legal ethics issues unique to that practice context, those issues are overlooked in the rules of professional conduct in all but one Canadian jurisdiction: Nunavut. In this comment, I canvass several provisions that are unique to the Code of Professional Conduct of the Law Society of Nunavut. These provisions are inexplicably overlooked in the Canadian legal ethics literature to date. I then assess how these provisions address the legal ethics issues unique to government lawyering. Finally, I argue that the Nunavut provisions should be considered a starting point and I consider additional changes that could be …


Crown Prosecutors And Government Lawyers: A Legal Ethics Analysis Of Under-Funding, Andrew Flavelle Martin 2025 Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law

Crown Prosecutors And Government Lawyers: A Legal Ethics Analysis Of Under-Funding, Andrew Flavelle Martin

Articles, Book Chapters, & Popular Press

Crown prosecutors and government lawyers are reliant on governments for their funding but exert no meaningful influence or control over such funding decisions. Nonetheless, this article demonstrates that as a question of law, under-funded Crown prosecutors and government lawyers risk violating their professional duties. If so, they must promptly inform the government, refuse new matters and, if necessary, withdraw from existing matters. If the government purports to block such refusal or withdrawal and does not provide adequate funding, resignation will become necessary. While law societies will likely not prioritize disciplinary action against such lawyers, the policy reasons to forego such …


Lawyers And Public Service: Duty, Faith, And The 'Good Republican' In The West Wing, Andrew Flavelle Martin 2025 Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law

Lawyers And Public Service: Duty, Faith, And The 'Good Republican' In The West Wing, Andrew Flavelle Martin

Articles, Book Chapters, & Popular Press

Popular culture reveals much about the perceived role of lawyers in contemporary life. In this article, I draw lessons from the portrayal of lawyers in Aaron Sorkin's classic television series, The West Wing. As a drama centred around a Democratic presidential administration, Republicans often provide the foil. From time to time, however, the show lionizes what might be termed ‘the good Republican’. That ‘good Republican’ is most often a practicing lawyer whose desire to serve is grounded in duty or faith. In this essay, I use a trio of these characters to explore the role of lawyers in public service. …

Daca's Major Questions Exception, Matthew Calabrese 2024 Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University

Daca's Major Questions Exception, Matthew Calabrese

Hofstra Law Review

The Supreme Court has extracted a new role as the gatekeeper of administrative action under the major questions doctrine. Underlying the doctrine is an understanding that agencies cannot act to address policy issues implicating questions of great political and economic significance unless specifically authorized by Congress. However, DACA presents a different question that should be exempted from the major questions doctrine. This is because DACA relies on two levels of executive authority: statutory—under the Immigration and Nationality Act and the Homeland Security Act—and constitutional—under the Take Care Clause. Because, as this Article explains, the two authorities cannot be disentangled, courts …

Controlling Buyer And Seller Power: Reviving Enforcement Of The Robinson-Patman Act, Daniel A. Hanley

Hofstra Law Review

The Robinson-Patman Act (“RPA”) is a federal law enacted in 1936. Congress’s goal in drafting this historic legislation was to protect and promote democracy and individual liberty in the United States by supporting the creation and vitality of small and independent businesses, thereby distributing power and opportunity within the U.S. political economy.This Article provides a robust defense of Congress’s goals and intentions in enacting the RPA as well as a detailed history of how the Act benefited American society when it was vigorously enforced. It concludes with thoughts on how the RPA can be used to revitalize today’s economy, thus …


The Adolescent Mental Health Crisis: A Case Study In Family Court Planning, Andrew Schepard 2024 Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University

The Adolescent Mental Health Crisis: A Case Study In Family Court Planning, Andrew Schepard

Hofstra Law Review

The article focuses on addressing the adolescent mental health crisis within the framework of family court planning, particularly in the context of parental separation and divorce. It emphasizes the need for comprehensive planning processes within family courts to integrate Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) as a central strategy for tackling this crisis effectively. It seeks to enhance mental health services for adolescents involved in family court proceedings.
