The Way To Carnegie: Practice, Practice, Practice, Alan Minuskin 2011 Boston College Law School

The Way To Carnegie: Practice, Practice, Practice, Alan Minuskin

Alan D. Minuskin

Along with colleagues on the clinical faculty at Boston College Law School, I organized a day-long symposium on the need for reforms in legal education in the United States. I also served as moderator of one of the three panel presentations that comprised the conference. The particular subject matter of the panel I moderated was the value of clinical pedagogy in legal education with special attention to differences in models employed and proposed at leading U.S. law schools.


Palliative Care: An Enforceable Canadian Human Right?, Yude M. Henteleff, Mary J. Shariff, Darcy L. MacPherson 2011 University of Manitoba School of Law

Palliative Care: An Enforceable Canadian Human Right?, Yude M. Henteleff, Mary J. Shariff, Darcy L. Macpherson

Mary J. Shariff

This article lays out a series of approaches for establishing an enforceable human right to palliative care in Canada. The article first examines international human rights instruments to which Canada is a signatory, and concludes that they offer limited assistance to palliative care advocates. The article then examines two promising Charter challenges. The first, based on section 15, argues that since palliative care is provided unevenly to those who require it, the equality provisions of the Charter could compel equitable provision of palliative care to Canadians with life-limiting illnesses. The second is based on section 7, and argues that failure ...

"A Perfection Of Means, And Confusion Of Aims": Finding The Essence Of Autonomy In Assisted Death Laws, Mary Shariff 2011 University of Manitoba School of Law

"A Perfection Of Means, And Confusion Of Aims": Finding The Essence Of Autonomy In Assisted Death Laws, Mary Shariff

Mary J. Shariff

This article explores whether the principles of autonomy and self-determination are indeed at the root of the assisted death laws currently in place in a number of jurisdictions. It is written to appeal to a very broad audience and to those who wish to become better informed about the legal aspects of the assisted death debate. The article first provides a comprehensive and comparative examination of the assisted death laws in the jurisdictions that have promulgated express legislation to regulate assisted death – The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Oregon and Washington and also includes an examination of Switzerland, which does not currently ...


The Bell Is Tolling: Retiree Health Benefits Post-Health Reform, Susan E. Cancelosi 2011 Wayne State University

The Bell Is Tolling: Retiree Health Benefits Post-Health Reform, Susan E. Cancelosi

Law Faculty Research Publications

Millions of retirees rely each year on employment-based health insurance to pay for medical expenses not covered by Medicare. Employment-based health insurance is often the only reasonable means by which early retirees can obtain health insurance coverage because of the exorbitant costs associated with purchasing individual insurance. As the costs of providing health insurance and medical care have skyrocketed, fewer and fewer employers continue to provide retiree health insurance coverage to their employees, and those that do shift much of the cost to the retirees themselves. Within this context Professor Cancelosi examines the future of employment-based retiree health benefits in ...

Compliance With Advance Directives: Wrongful Living And Tort Law Incentives, Holly Lynch, Michele Mathes, Nadia Sawicki 2011 Hogan & Hartson, LLP

Compliance With Advance Directives: Wrongful Living And Tort Law Incentives, Holly Lynch, Michele Mathes, Nadia Sawicki

Nadia N. Sawicki

Modern ethical and legal norms generally require that deference be accorded to patients' decisions regarding treatment, including decisions to refuse life-sustaining care, even when patients no longer have the capacity to communicate those decisions to their physicians. Advance directives were developed as a means by which a patient's autonomy regarding medical care might survive such incapacity. Unfortunately, preserving patient autonomy at the end of life has been no simple task. First, it has been difficult to persuade patients to prepare for incapacity by making their wishes known. Second, even when they have done so, there is a distinct possibility ...
