Searching The Legacy Of The Reformation For Lutheran Responses To Modern Family Law, Marie A. Failinger 2019 Mitchell Hamline School of Law

Searching The Legacy Of The Reformation For Lutheran Responses To Modern Family Law, Marie A. Failinger

Concordia Law Review

This article builds upon historical work on changes in the law of marriage, divorce and the family after the Reformation, and describes how modern Lutheran theology, formed during the Reformation, evaluates modern trends in American family law. From the key Lutheran theological insight that God is creatively ordering human activity as a partner with human beings, the Lutheran tradition approaches issues such as no-fault divorce and same-sex marriage with both trust and challenge.


Criminal Prosecutions And The 2008 Financial Crisis In The U.S. And Iceland: What Can A Small Town Icelandic Police Chief Teach The U.S. About Prosecuting Wall Street?, Justin Rex 2019 Bowling Green State University

Criminal Prosecutions And The 2008 Financial Crisis In The U.S. And Iceland: What Can A Small Town Icelandic Police Chief Teach The U.S. About Prosecuting Wall Street?, Justin Rex

Concordia Law Review

Politicians, journalists, and academics alike highlight the paucity of criminal prosecutions for senior financial executives in the US in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. One common argument for the lack of prosecutions is that, though industry players behaved recklessly, they did not behave criminally. I evaluate this claim by detailing the civil, and small number of criminal, actions actually taken and by reviewing leading arguments about whether behavior before the crisis was criminal. Rejecting the “reckless innocence” explanation, I provide examples of criminal behavior that could have been prosecuted and review the literature on why there were few ...


The Consummate Legal Education: Teaching Analysis As Doctrine, Julie Ann Interdonato 2019 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

The Consummate Legal Education: Teaching Analysis As Doctrine, Julie Ann Interdonato

Concordia Law Review

This paper addresses the necessity and means of developing analysis and its written expression as an independent topic of study throughout students’ law school tenure. “Doctrine,” as it appears in the above title, is defined as the transcendent analytic concepts that underlie the common law, and the modality of their application in the law’s constant evolution. The purpose of presenting analysis in this context is to enhance analytic instruction presently provided in law school, and thereby take students one step further in their education, into the realm of the practicing attorney. In this manner, educators, building on the case ...


A Common Enterprise: Law And The Connection Between Civil And Heavenly Realms In The Writings Of John Calvin, Kenneth L. Townsend 2019 Institute for Civic and Professional Engagement, Millsaps College

A Common Enterprise: Law And The Connection Between Civil And Heavenly Realms In The Writings Of John Calvin, Kenneth L. Townsend

Concordia Law Review

The common ends that once united spiritual and civil realms have been privatized as those ends have come to be seen as controversial and plural, rather than unifying and common. Acknowledging the diversity of ends resulted in increased attention to uniform rules. Since there was no longer agreement about what teloi mattered for society, law gradually lost its aspirational features and became simply a way to limit and punish uncivil and criminal behavior.

The formal separation, but ultimate unity, of civil and heavenly spheres, of norm with vision, articulated by Calvin, allowed him to be both idealistic and realistic about ...


Criminally Homeless? The Eighth Amendment Prohibition Against Penalizing Status, Tim Donaldson 2019 City Attorney & Municipal Prosecutor, Walla Walla, Washington

Criminally Homeless? The Eighth Amendment Prohibition Against Penalizing Status, Tim Donaldson

Concordia Law Review

The article examines the extent to which the Cruel and Unusual Punishments Clause of the Eighth Amendment protects the ability of homeless persons to subsist in public places. It reviews Martin v. City of Boise and how the Eighth Amendment has been applied to test the constitutionality of local laws targeted at the homeless. It discusses whether homelessness constitutes a recognizable status protected by the Eighth Amendment, and, if so, whether protection is extended to unavoidable conduct resulting from that status.
