The legal culture and migration : structure, antecedents and consequences by Julia Shamir( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The concept of legal culture has been receiving a growing attention from scholars; more recently, it has been the subject of numerous empirical investigations. However, this research is often over-generalizing, because it overemphasizes the similarity of the opinions held by different segments of population. Furthermore, the relationship of migration and the change--or persistence--of the attitudes and perceptions that constitute legal culture has not received particular attention in the scholarly literature. Drawing on 102 in-depth interviews with representatives of three segments of the Israeli population--immigrants of the early 90's from the former Soviet Union, secular Israeli Jews and members of the Israeli Diaspora in Silicon Valley, CA--this research investigates various aspects of legal culture. First, exploring four parameters of the legal culture--attitudes towards the rule of law, the subjective significance of individual liberty, perceptions of the neutrality of law, and dispute resolution preferences, including readiness to pursue rights and attitudes towards the courts--this study provides a comprehensive account of the legal cultures of these three groups. The second important finding of this research is the persistence of the attitudes and perceptions that constitute legal culture over time. It appears that although two decades elapsed since the respondents of the first group emigrated from the former Soviet Union to Israel, they still express notions and demonstrate attitudes that bring to mind the Iron Fist of the Soviet Rule. Additionally, it appears that the attitudes characteristic of the pre-immigration outlooks affects--to a certain extent--the socialization of the new generation growing up and being educated in Israel. Finally, this research calls into focus the significant disparities of the attitudes between various groups of population, leading to the conclusion that these differences warrant special consideration on the part of the policy-makers, whose ability to effectively secure desired behavior by means of regulation is linked to the attitudes of the population
Making sense of the feedback loop between the media and the criminal justice system by Itay Ravid( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

My dissertation focuses on the connections between criminal law, race, media, and society. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, I focus on three interrelated components: the criminal law in action, in particular sentencing decisions; media representations of crime, criminals and victims; and how the interactions between these institutions and representations shape the criminal justice system. My dissertation aims to push the scholarship on the effects of mass media on the criminal justice system a step forward, and to empirically assess and explain both the existence and the magnitude of such effects, with particular attention to the treatment disadvantaged minorities receive from the criminal justice system. My first two papers explore racially skewed media representations of defendants and victims, and discuss how these representations dominate the criminal justice system and affect criminal law and policy. The third paper investigates how increased coverage on crime leads to increased harshness in sentencing among judges in state trial courts, and explain these relationships based on the media's role in instilling fear of crime in society. Utilizing mainly quantitative research methods, I bridge a gap in the empirical scholarship and provide evidence to better understand the feedback loop between the media and the criminal justice system. I demonstrate how institutional dynamics shape social learning on crime in society, corroborate stereotypical thinking, and preserve and perpetuate inequalities in the criminal justice system. By doing so, I go beyond traditional institutional exploration of the criminal justice system to provide a more holistic view of how Americans in general, and legal professionals in particular, perceive and discuss crime in society. Moreover, I offer a novel multidisciplinary lens to address recurrent themes in the scholarship on racial disparities in the criminal justice system
California Public Employees' Retirement System, petitioner, v. ANZ Securities, Inc., et al., respondents : on writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit : brief of civil procedure and securities law professors as amici curiae in support of petitioner( Book )

Argument: Available empirical evidence suggests that limiting American Pipe's reach will result in substantial numbers of wasteful protective filings; sound principles of research design counsel against a "natural experiment" approach or a narrow focus on opt-outs in measuring the efficiency costs of a decision limiting American Pipe's reach; limiting American Pipe's reach would not yield any countervailing benefit
Discretion in mass adjudication by David B Hausman( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation asks how mechanisms of administrative review can constrain the decisions of line-level decisionmakers in three contexts: the immigration courts, Social Security disability adjudications, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officers' decisions about whom to detain and deport. In all three contexts, mechanisms of review have mixed success; using quantitative strategies, I identify strengths and weaknesses and opportunities for reform
