The Conversation That Changed Everything

We were hiding from the heat, sisters in solidarity against vacations on the surface of the sun. While most of our friends lounged by the pool, living their best lives with umbrella drinks and beach reads, the four of us sought refuge in the blessed air-conditioned hotel room. In the privacy of that room, we could finally admit that we were melting and a little bit hangry about it (hangry = hot + angry). As we commiserated and cooled off, our conversation quickly turned to deeper topics. I can s...

After embracing new firing squad option, will South Carolina seek to move quickly forward with "old school" executions?

As reported in this new AP piece, "South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster has signed into law a bill that forces death row inmates for now to choose between the electric chair or a newly formed firing squad in hopes the state can restart executions after an involuntary 10-year pause." Here are more details that prompt the question in the title of this post: South Carolina had been one of the most prolific states of its size in putting inmates to death. But a lack of lethal injection drugs brought e...

Proposed Rules Under the Legal Aid Services Act, 2020: Impact on Community Legal Clinics

In July 2020, the Ontario Legislative Assembly enacted new legislation governing the provision of legal aid in the province, Legal Aid Services Act, 2020 (“2020 Act”). The legislation does not come into force until it has been proclaimed by the Lieutenant-Governor and that won’t happen until new rules have been finalized. The board of Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) (called “the Corporation” under the 2020 Act) has the authority under section 46 of the 2020 Act to make rules governing the provision of l...

BYU Law Students Develop Web Resource To Address Flaws In Expungement Process

Eight students in the LawX legal design lab at BYU Law have developed an online resource, called Goodbye Record, that is designed to address flaws in the process for expunging criminal records in Utah and potentially other states as well.

In each semester-long lab, the students tackle a different issue. Previous LawX proj...

'No one can dare ask why': What it's like to live in a town where everything is controlled by the Taliban

Women are banned from leaving their homes without a male companion and nobody dares ask about schooling for girls living here. Taxation, that's sometimes fair and often on the rich but compulsory, can be prey to rival taxmen and lead to beatings and imprisonment for non-payment. Justice is dispensed in mobile courts with adulterers jailed or killed and some reoffending thieves hanged in public. Bread, clothing and even the occasional smartphone are gifts for fighters.

The Accountability Gap and the Struggles of Our Civil Justice System

Conflict management systems are increasingly common within large corporations and other organizations. Workplace interpersonal disputes and bad behaviour are inevitable, but also manageable. Interests can be reconciled, rights can be upheld, and peace can be restored. A conflict management system is built to do exactly that. Some workplace disputes call for open communication and compromise. However conflict management systems can also ensure that unacceptable behaviour — e.g. harassment, discri...

Jason Statham Wants to Return to ‘Fast and Furious’ to Face Justice for Han

“Justice for Han,” has been the rallying call for Sung Kang’s fan-favorite Fast and Furious character, who had apparently snuffed it in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, the victim of sabotage by Jason Statham‘s Deckard Shaw. Meanwhile, Han’s killer was alive and well, and even welcomed into the family by the time The Fate of the Furious rolled around. Now, Han is back in the upcoming F9 and justice is served — though Statham’s Shaw is nowhere to be seen. And Statham would like to remedy that. ...

Accountability, not Justice

The guilty verdict in the Chauvin case was exceeding welcome--but, as one speaker pointed out, it was a victory for accountability, not justice. Justice would have George Floyd still alive to watch Chauvin pay the price of his inhuman actions.  Thanks to the many police officers who broke the blue wall of silence, to the bystanders who cried for mercy, and, most of all to Darnella Frazie, the woman who caught the entire terrible episode on video despite being threatened with mace, t...
