Ring V. Arizona Case Brief

...These factors may include past criminal behavior, certain evidence that may have been suppressed for a variety of reasons, or even the testimony of witnesses that is not allowed before the jury for any number of reasons. All of these factors are known to the judge and could be taken into account if allowed to decide a case on his/her own. This leads to bias and the unconstitutionality of being tried in court, but without the jury making the key determinations that make up the "Trial by jury" asp...

Functionalist theory of crime and deviance

...This is Durkheim's way of describing punishment, which for him is to reaffirm society's shared rules and reinforce social solidarity. Durkheim said this could be done though the courtroom which dramatises wrongdoing and publicly stigmatises the offender which reaffirms the values of the law-abiding majority and discourages others from rule breaking. The second feature is influenced by Durkheim's belief that all change starts with an act of deviance. Durkheim believed there much be some wiggle ro...

Relation between Economics and Law

...Be that as it may, we are concerned as students of Legal Economics with economic efficiency objectives of tort law. Before that we will discuss briefly the legal objectives of tort. Holmes and later others are of the opinion that tort law has no interests in shifting the loss from the victim of an accident to others unless this serves some special objective, ranging from vindication, preserving the peace by 'buying off' the victims, desire to retaliate, ethical retribution, compensation and det...

The Social Learning Theory of Bandura

...Thirdly, Reproduction - through modelling the desired behaviour and coaching, Paul must be able to demonstrate the new skill or behaviour. The next step is Motivation - Paul must have a motivating incentive for learning or changing his behaviour; and then finally Self-regulation - which involves changing the unwanted behaviour, Paul must self observe and judge his own behaviour.

On the other extreme, the opposition, civil society a...

Rousseau & Mill on the Limitations of Freedom

...He also adds that the only way that a person can be confident that he is right is if there is a complete liberty to contradict and disprove his beliefs; putting to rest any uncertainties or doubts one may have on a given "truth."The above mentioned theories have very contrasting views about freedom and the limitations on an individual and sovereignty's right to freedom.

In the perfect society, we would continue to remove individuals from their positions if misconduct is proven and we cannot avoid bringing abo...

Speech Analysis

...All in all I thought my speech went well over all. There are positives and negatives out of everything one does.

Both of these weaknesses are completely capable of being changed. By the end of this semester I plan to have successfully given a speech without the little mistakes.

Debate Against School Uniforms

...Identification is one of the biggest factors ruled in against school uniforms. Many people state that you could easily site outsiders of the school, and it would also eliminate gang colors. If you have a school full of children with the same clothing on you would find it nearly impossible to identify a child who was causing trouble. One example is if someone caught a glimpse of a child stealing and then tried to give a description. The description would most likely fit a majority of the students...

"A View From the Bridge" by Arthur Miller

...Eddie, however, blindly refuses to believe that he has done anything wrong. He desperately wants to get back his good name after Marco's accusations caused the neighbourhood to turn away from him: Marco's got my name - and you run tell him, kid, that he's gonna give it back to me in front of this neighbourhood, or we have it out.(p.62).

Human Rights In Pakistan

...If, on the other hand, they seek a political pact, the amelioration, if not the termination, of the conflicts would be likely (Malik 2007 117-28) a policy that respects pre- and post-elections pacts could minimize the eruption of such conflicts. Thus far, however, the failure to achieve such a middle ground has resulted in political disasters that have not only jeopardized the reign of self-indulgent and corrupt leaders, but also the civil, political, and economic fights of the vast majority of ...

Individual Rights and Public Order

...I have discussed the pros and cons of individual rights, and that they enable us to exercise our freedoms granted by the Constitution. I have also discussed public order, describing crimes and deviant acts that are contrary to our shared customs, social values, and norms. It is clear to me there is no black and white answer that will satisfy every person's desires and beliefs. There is however, a definite need for public order in our society. I think the best answer to this debate is that there ...

Law Enforcement Code of Ethics

...One knows that unpleasant experiences with the police affect individual opinions. Ideally, an officer's decision-making is based on his code of ethics. However, within many grey areas, the issues of loyalty force and discretion makes the process very difficult. Sykes (1989) states, "Professional ethics is extremely crucial to the image of law enforcement as a professional" (pp. 141-142). An officer has a responsibility to the whole community in a manner such as will inspire trust and confidence...

It also includes litigation on the basis of unfair labor practices and discrimination. Sometimes there is a question of whether a worker is ...

Personal Code of Ethics

...I honestly do not think there is a difference between personal and professional code of ethics, which makes it hard to compare, but what I believe is that, "A personal code of ethics" is simply a belief system in which you do some things because they are "good," and avoid doing other things because they are "bad." Formal law has very little to do with a personal code of ethics. You develop and are responsible for this code by yourself, though your parents and social contacts have a lot to do wit...

Rehabilitation or Retribution?

...Yet, rehabilitation and punishment are mutually exclusive goals, but they become more and more integrated in modern society, since the late 18th century prisons have combined elements of punishment with elements of rehabilitation. As the French philosopher Michel Foucault put it, punishment shifted over time from the disciplining of the body to the disciplining of the "soul" (Politics.co.uk, 2007). Therefore, incarceration sentences should provide for a set term of rehabilitation followed by a s...

The Right To Privacy in India

...In a world which is becoming more and more densely populated and where the amount of personal space available to us is decreasing in physical terms, the right to privacy shall expand so as to compensate for the loss of physical space by allowing the intense possessiveness of the limited spaces that we do own. Not only is this beneficial, it is, to some extent, essential for the meaningful existence of human beings. The researcher would like to conclude by stressing the importance of privacy as s...

Technology and Law Enforcement

...The use of technology by the community has definitely changed how the general public responds to crime and the threat thereof. With these new abilities however, comes greater responsibility for the individual.

Or, when does CCTV in public places cross the line of public security and wander into the touchy realm of individual privacy?ConclusionTechnology has given criminals n...

Employment Law and Labor Relations Issues

...In conclusion, it is very important that companies keep their policies up-to-date and follow them. Written policies tell your employees how they can expect to be treated and give you guidelines for applying the policies consistently. However, the policies must comply with legal requirements and you must follow them, or they may be used against you as evidence of violations of the law. Having these problems addressed in my organization could help it many ways, starting with establishing a good re...

Death at midnight by Donald A. Cabana

...The theme of friendship and disillusionment is well portrayed here. Cabana tries to demonstrate this using his relationship with Connie who he feels did not deserve to be executed. The author’s style in this book is both narrative and analytical because as much as he narrates his encounters and experiences in prison, he is also quick to analyze and form an opinion regarding the justice system. References: Cabana A. D. , (1998) Death at Midnight: The Confession of an Executioner. City: UPNE...

The purposive approach

...There are also many disadvantages to the purposive approach. Firstly, it involves too much judicial law making as it allows them too much freedom as seen in Royal College of Nursing v DHSS 1981, the judges weren't interpreting the Act but 'redrafting it with a vengeance'. Secondly. it creates uncertainty as it is subjective law making and is difficult to anticipate when judges will decided to use the purposive approach (Bentham). It isn't possible to know for sure what result using the purposiv...
