Effective child abuse investigation for the multi-disciplinary team / Bradley Richard Graham.

Location: lax
Call #: HV8079.C46 G685 2015

Child abuse cases are unique in that they involve seldomly witnessed acts. A nonverbal victim and a silent perpetrator will often lead to a stalling of the investigation and the judicial process. 'Effective Child Abuse Investigation for the Multi-Disciplinary Team' is a practical guide for law enforcement officers and child protection workers in abuse investigations. It demonstrates how all members of the team can best work together to consolidate the medical, social, and legal facts in each case, increasing the chances for successful prosecution and enhancing child safety.

Impunity, human rights, and democracy : Chile and Argentina, 1990-2005 / Thomas C. Wright.

Location: lax
Call #: JC599.C5 W75 2014
Publisher:


Universal human rights standards were adopted in 1948, but in the 1970s and 1980s, violent dictatorships in Argentina and Chile flagrantly defied the new protocols. Chilean general Augusto Pinochet and the Argentine military employed state terrorism in their quest to eradicate Marxism and other forms of "subversion." Pinochet constructed an iron shield of impunity for himself and the military in Chile, while in Argentina, military pressure resulted in laws preventing prosecution for past human rights violations. When democracy was reestablished in both countries by 1990, justice for crimes against humanity seemed beyond reach.Thomas C. Wright examines how persistent advocacy by domestic and international human rights groups, evolving legal environments, unanticipated events that impacted public opinion, and eventual changes in military leadership led to a situation unique in the world--the stripping of impunity not only from a select number of commanders of the repression but from all those involved in state terrorism in Chile and Argentina.

Ecological governance : reappraising law's role in protecting ecosystem functionality / Olivia Woolley.

Location: lax
Call #: K3585 .W66 2014
Publisher:


Ecological degradation has been an object of concern for the international community since the early 1970s, but legal approaches that have been employed to improve the protection of ecosystems have failed to halt this decline. Ecological Governance explores how the law should respond to this rapid global deterioration of ecosystems by examining the foundational scientific and ethical considerations for designing laws that are effective for ecological protection. Based on these analyses, it argues that developed states should prioritise the reduction of the ecological stresses for which they are responsible in decision-making on their future courses. The author also proposes structures for governance and associated legal frameworks that would enable the formulation and implementation of policies for ecological sustainability.

Critical debates on counter-terrorism judicial review / edited by Fergal F. Davis and Fiona de Londras.

Location: lax
Call #: K5256 .C75 2013
Publisher:


Is judicial review an effective and appropriate way to regulate counter-terrorism measures? Some argue that the judiciary is ill-equipped to examine such measures, for instance because they lack the expertise of the institutions which bring them about under exigent conditions. Others claim that subjecting counter-terrorism measures to judicial review is crucial for maintaining a jurisdiction's principles of constitutionalism. This volume brings together voices from all sides of the debate from a broad range of jurisdictions, from North America, Europe and Australasia. Find out more (catalog link)

Eureka myth : creators, innovators, and everyday intellectual property / Jessica Silbey.

Location: lax
Call #: KF2979 .S59 2015
Publisher:


In 1789, the Constitution enshrined protections for authors and inventors. Yet we still debate the merits of intellectual property laws and whether they work as intended.

Silbey cuts through the current debates and goes straight to the source: the artists and innovators themselves. By centering on accounts of creative and innovative work provided by artists, scientists, their employers, managers, and lawyers, The Eureka Myth breaks new ground. In doing so, it draws out new and surprising conclusions about the sometimes misinterpreted relationships between creativity, innovation, and IP. Find out more (catalog link)

Force of law / Frederick Schauer.

Location: lax
Call #: K579.D8 S33 2015
Publisher:


As citizens of liberal democratic countries, we think that we live under the rule of law. Governments make the rules, we live by them, and the police enforce them. The Force of Law critically examines these assumptions. Criminologist Mariana Valverde makes clear that while the law is usually regarded as the civilized, nonviolent way to deal with harms and conflicts, violence is integral to it. Police are authorized to handcuff, tase, and even kill people; courts of law confine people to prison and, in some countries, the state can put people to death. The Force of Law stimulates readers to become more informed about law and law enforcement and more active in efforts to make policing accountable to the public. Find out more (catalog link)

Ideas with consequences : the Federalist Society and the conservative counterrevolution / Amanda Hollis-Brusky.

Location: lax
Call #: KF294.F43 H65 2015
Publisher:


The Federalist Society takes no positions, files no lawsuits, lobbies no legislators, and gives no political contributions. It is a debating society-though perhaps the most important one in American constitutional history since Hamilton, Jefferson, and Madison had dinner by themselves. In Ideas with Consequences, Amanda Hollis-Brusky shows how a loosely-organized group of lawyers, students, and professors with little of the conventional signs of political power have had such a profound influence on constitutional law.

Mea culpa : lessons on law and regret from U.S. history / Steven W. Bender.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4749 .B39 2015
Publisher:


In Mea Culpa, Steven W. Bender examines how the United States' collective shame about its past has shaped the evolution of law and behavior. We regret slavery and segregationist Jim Crow laws: we craft our legislation in response to that regret. By examining policies and practices that affected the lives of groups that have been historically marginalized and oppressed, Bender is able to draw persuasive connections between shame and its eventual legal manifestations.

Eternal criminal record / James B. Jacobs.

Location: lax
Call #: KF9751 .J33 2015

For over sixty million Americans, possessing a criminal record overshadows everything else about their public identity.

'The Eternal Criminal Record' makes transparent an all-pervading system of police databases and identity-screening that has become a routine feature of American life. Find out more (catalog link)

Forgotten trials of the Holocaust / Michael J. Bazyler and Frank M. Tuerkheimer.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ1174.5 .B39 2014
Publisher:


In the wake of the Second World War, how were the Allies to respond to the enormous crime of the Holocaust? Even in an ideal world, it would have been impossible to bring all the perpetrators to trial. Nevertheless, an attempt was made to prosecute some. Most people have heard of the Nuremberg trial and the Eichmann trial, though they probably have not heard of the Kharkov Trial - the first trial of Germans for Nazi-era crimes - or even the Dachau Trials, in which war criminals were prosecuted by the American military personnel on the former concentration camp grounds. This book uncovers ten 'forgotten trials' of the Holocaust, selected from the many Nazi trials that have taken place over the course of the last seven decades. Find out more (catalog link)

This work examines efforts to constrict access to the courts in the decades following the civil rights era. While most narratives of backlash center on conservatives in Congress and on the Supreme Court, there is another element to this story in which access to courts has been eroded by more hidden, procedural changes, driven by interests that cross party and ideological lines, that profoundly impact access to justice in the U.S. Find out more (catalog link)

Defensive killing / Helen Frowe.

Location: lax
Call #: K5087.S4 F76 2014
Publisher:


Most people believe that it is sometimes morally permissible for a person to use force to defend herself or others against harm. In Defensive Killing, Helen Frowe offers a detailed exploration of when and why the use of such force is permissible. She begins by considering the use of force between individuals, investigating both the circumstances under which an attacker forfeits her right not to be harmed, and the distinct question of when it is all-things-considered permissible to use force against an attacker. Frowe then extends this enquiry to war, defending the view that we should judge the ethics of killing in war by the moral rules that govern killing between individuals. Find out more (catalog link)

Publisher: New York University Press,


In Divorced from Reality, Jane C. Murphy and Jana B. Singer argue that the current "problem solving" model fails to address the realities of today's families. The authors suggest that while todays dispute resolution regime may represent an improvement over its more adversary predecessor, it is built largely around the model of a divorcing nuclear family with lawyers representing all partiesa model that fits poorly with the realities of today's disputing families. To serve the families it is meant to help, the legal system must adapt and reshape itself. Find out more (catalog link)

Governed through choice : autonomy, technology, and the politics of reproduction / Jennifer M. Denbow.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3760 .D46 2015
Publisher: New York University Press,


At the centre of the 'war on women' lies the fact that women in the contemporary United States are facing more widespread and increased surveillance of their reproductive health and decisions. In recent years states have passed a record number of laws restricting abortion. Physicians continue to sterilize some women against their will, especially those in prison, while other women who choose to forego reproduction cannot find physicians to sterilize them. While these actions seem to undermine women's decision-making authority, experts and state actors often defend them in terms of promoting women's autonomy. Jennifer M. Denbow exposes the way that the notion of autonomy allows for this apparent contradiction and explores how it plays out in recent reproductive law, including newly enacted informed consent to abortion laws like ultrasound mandates and the regulation of sterilization.

Call #: KF1262 .B37 2015
Publisher: Stanford Law Books, an imprint of Stanford University Press,

The 20th century saw the creation of laws that protect your right to control your public image, to defend your image, and to feel good about your image and public presentation of self. These include the legal actions against invasion of privacy, libel, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. With these laws came the phenomenon of 'personal image litigation' - individuals suing to vindicate their image rights. This book tells the story of how Americans came to use the law to protect and manage their images, feelings, and reputations. Find out more (catalog link)
