“it's a woman’s right to control her own destiny, to be able to make choices without the Big Brother state telling her what she and cannot do” (Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Women have fought for their entire lives for equal rights which for some apparent reasons have not been acknowledged. Roe vs. Wade had changed the outlook on the United States and on a woman’s rights to her own body. Roe vs. Wade goes back to 1973 which was between a women who had an unplanned surgery in Texas who wanted to make abortions legal. Norma Leah McCorvey, better known as “Jane Roe” was the plaintiff in this case, after her case the U.S Supreme Court had ruled that state laws banning abortion are unconstitutional.
The establishment of law and order far and wide across the United States, was for one main reason: to maintain the peace and order of this country. Laws are designed to keep us safe not only from each other but from the government as well. It is very important that the laws be followed by each and every individual in society, in order to insure maximum efficiency and security, this however is nearly impossible, due to the variable of human behavior. Laws are designed in the manner to protect from human action or otherwise known (or speculated) natural results. It is a simple way of avoiding cause in order to not deal with the effect of an action.
Throughout the history of mankind, society has defined itself by law and the order that law creates. “Laws are the binding rules of conduct or action which the vast majority of the society has to abide”. Justice on the other hand is rather an abstract concept. There is no right or wrong definition of justice, but is rather agreed upon the concept of being fair and equal. Many would assume that the sole purpose of law is to establish justice, which seems like a wonderful philosophical theory but is slightly difficult to follow.
As has been thoroughly established, the problem in America doesn’t appear to be related to the recent increase in partisanship. If the partisan argument were sufficient, it would suggest gridlock would occur in countries that also possess this same principle. What has been proven though is that this is not the case in other parts of the world, and instead quite the contrary often occurs. A new answer must be formulated to answer the question as to what is causing the consistency in America’s dissent and inefficiency. What appears to be the case is that rather than the actual, tangible partisanship being the problem, it is instead a lower tolerance for partisanship that America possesses.
3 Reasons of Dislocation between Criminal Justice and Social Justice The significant dislocation between criminal justice and social justice exists in the practice of criminal justice, public opinions should be objective, rational and appropriate. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze reasons of this special phenomenon in order to avoid following blindly. 3.1 The Limitation of Criminal Justice in Practice Criminal justice has the limitation in practice, which is a significant reason of generating the dislocation between criminal justice and social justice in a specific case. Bernard and Engel (2001) argues that criminal justice is not a one-sided justice of those people in power, it is a variable influenced by two sides of criminal justice
There are many articles, passages, and stories about placing a monetary value on human lives. They all ask “Can you put a value on human life?” or “Are some lives worth more than other?” In these writings they attempt to put a value on lives and estimate the monetary compensation for the death of the person(s). I will say, in the least, despite popular belief and opinion, you can’t put a monetary value on any life.
(a) Explain why the American judicial system is considered to be an “adversarial” system. An adversarial system is when two advocates, if you will represent their parties ' case or position before an impartial person or group of people, usually a jury or judge, who attempt to determine the truth and pass judgment accordingly. So, in an American court you have the prosecution who are bring on the charges and the defendant who is charged and both parties case or position is brought before and impartial judge and jury. This is what classify it as a adversarial system.
Emile Durkheim’s theories on social solidarity have been leading the debate on the effects of a shift between two types of solidarity for decades. Solidarity can be seen as the bonding force that hold our societies together. One type of solidarity is mechanical solidarity. Mechanical solidarity is a society that functions as a collective, like a machine, with the same goals, dreams and fears that are driven by the ideals of a god or religious figure. In the modern world we have transitioned into organic solidarity.
The question requires one to analyse the validity of the enactment of retroactive law in view of the jurisprudential theories of H. L A. Hart and Lon Fuller. The factual situation given above also entails evaluation of the area related to amnesty law that provides for immunity for criminal offence committed, however, the civil liability will also be considered. The jurisprudential debate of Hart and Fuller in the Harvard Law Review in 1958 would be of importance as it reflects the different view of Hart and Fuller. The debate was about the case of ‘Grudge Informer’ where the wife during the Third Reich depending on the Nazi law, informs on her spouse of his anti- government activities.
The differences between criminal and civil case The main differences between criminal and civil law is who the parties that bought the case and what the case is about.

In the article, “The Case for Partisanship” by Matthew Yglesias, he explains how in the 1950’s, the American Political Science Association’s Committee strongly presented the idea that polarization is good. Today, many people look down upon political polarization. The mid-20th century appeared united politically but in fact the country was deeply divided over civil rights and politics. Conservatives and liberals could appear in both the Republican and Democratic parties due to foreign policy and racial issues overlapping on traditional conservative and liberal beliefs. The interconnection of political parties in the past has suddenly gone down.
