On The Admissibility Of Group Rights, Luis Rodriguez-Abascal 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

On The Admissibility Of Group Rights, Luis Rodriguez-Abascal

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

In this presentation I shall explore the question of whether or not it is defensible to grant legal group rights through international instruments and national legal systems. I shall proceed in the following way. First, I shall briefly examine the conceptual consistency between group rights and the framework of rights discourse, and I shall conclude that it is conceptually possible to include group rights in ordinary rights talk. Secondly, I shall explore what the basic requirements would be for the recognition of a group right. I shall suggest that the use of rights discourse bears a number of conceptual as ...


Alternative Dispute Resolution In The United States And Russia: A Comparative Evaluation, Elena Nosyreva 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

Alternative Dispute Resolution In The United States And Russia: A Comparative Evaluation, Elena Nosyreva

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

Unlike the United States with its extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution, this institution is in its infancy in Russia. Russia is only now developing an interest in out-of-court methods of dispute resolution. With economic changes, the number of new legal disputes has increased significantly. Russian courts of general jurisdiction are overloaded by civil cases. Ordinary litigation has become too expensive for the majority of the Russian people. In such conditions Russian society needs less expensive, more flexible alternatives to litigation. The purpose of this paper is to compare the ADR experiences in the United States and the Russian Federation ...

The Right To Education In The United States: Beyond The Limits Of The Lore And Lure Of Law, Roger J.R. Levesque 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

The Right To Education In The United States: Beyond The Limits Of The Lore And Lure Of Law, Roger J.R. Levesque

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

The author argues that U.S. as well as international law on educational rights needs to incorporate an important, but heretofore neglected, dimension. U.S. legislation and court decisions, as well as existing international instruments on educational rights focus chiefly on educational access and assign responsibility and authority over educational content and methods almost exclusively to the state and parents. The ideas, concerns and wishes of the young people being educated remain largely unacknowledged and disregarded. The author maintains that only to the extent our understanding of educational rights is rethought to include "youth's self-determination of education for citizenship ...


The United Nations Convention On The Rights Of The Child And United States Abortion Law, Sanford J. Fox 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

The United Nations Convention On The Rights Of The Child And United States Abortion Law, Sanford J. Fox

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

The ratification of treaties governing human rights often raises the question of whether obligations imposed by the treaty are compatible with the existing domestic law of the ratifying state. One common way of resolving such conflicts is for the State to avoid undertaking the inconsistent legal obligation by qualifying its acceptance of the treaty with a reservation, even when domestic law already provides for resolving such conflicts. Another measure that may be adopted, particularly where the treaty provision at issue is cast in general terms, is for the ratifying state to include a Declaration or an Understanding (RUD) with its ...

Child Labor In India, A Consumer’S Perspective: Identifying Causes, Acknowledging Realities, And Proposing Incentives For Improvement, Vanessa L. DeNiro Esq. 2010 California Western School of Law

Child Labor In India, A Consumer’S Perspective: Identifying Causes, Acknowledging Realities, And Proposing Incentives For Improvement, Vanessa L. Deniro Esq.

Vanessa L. De Niro

The exploitation of modern child labor in developing countries persists in part because of consumers like us. However, in light of increased global trade liberalization in developing countries and free market principles, cheap labor is what allows these nations to have a competitive edge in the global economy. With that said, a category of people that work longer hours for meager wages, absent unionization or labor protections, is an efficient means of production and justified by the economy of scales. Child laborers, exploited by employers competing in the global economy, are simply a product of laissez-fair economics, participating and contributing ...

Information Privacy: A Quantitative Study Of Citizen Awareness, Concern And Information Seeking Behavior Related To The Use Of The Social Security Number As A Personal Identifier, Rhonda Marisa Clossum 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Information Privacy: A Quantitative Study Of Citizen Awareness, Concern And Information Seeking Behavior Related To The Use Of The Social Security Number As A Personal Identifier, Rhonda Marisa Clossum

Masters Theses

Information technology has transformed the manner in which personal identifying information is collected, stored and shared in government agencies and private businesses. The social security number has become the de facto identifier for individuals due to its notable qualities: a nine-digit number assigned to one person by the United States government. As individuals are increasingly asked to disclose personal information, the question arises: How does the lack of awareness of social security number laws contribute to the loss of privacy, loss of control of personal information and the threat of identity theft? This study examines awareness levels of social security ...
