Human Rights Act provided a new basis for judicial interpretation but “not a basis for striking down any part of it.” Domestic courts are put in a position of a problem solver but their “hands” are bind really tight and it is hard to protect human rights since so many prohibitions are implemented. On other hand, looking to Human Rights Act from a political perspective, it is thought that this act upholds the doctrine of Parliamentary sovereignty and political control. Since more tools are given to the judiciary it may result in judges as law-making power. Recent governments have shown concern over the increased power
Differing cultures, economics, and religions all make laws complicated to implement, and corruption, cultural interpretations, and different systems of justice make them even more difficult to enforce. The UN protocol is essentially ,on paper, the most effective as its transnational and tries to monitor more than one single countries human trafficking issues although this can be seen as a disadvantage as they can’t focus strongly on one area. (9) The UN protocol has not only prevented human
Political correctness is, as of now, an ongoing process, and not a finished product. One might agree with the author’s criticism of newly used terms such as “minimally exceptional” and “visually impaired” being far-fetched, but one must also keep in mind that these words could easily not be here to stay. Changing and improving language is not a definite thing: some words endure, and some do not - who is to say what expressions known today will become extinct in the
The disadvantages are: inefficiency, judicial isolation, quality of judges, and public access(Zimmer). With judicial isolation it risk the likelihood of judges having a one sided view due to the fact they are more of specialist type of judge rather than a generalist
All these conflicting views make it hard to come to a solution on how to fix the problem. It also prevents the United States from being whole. This same idea comes into play when trying to face other problems such as global warming, sexism, immigration, and tons of other prevalent
I can not see a negative side coming from a reform regarding hate speech. People who oppose these changes can state that the reform will be a long and tedious process that produces little reward, but hate speech is one of the most common problems people face today. Solving this will clear up any confusion facing the many charges and also make cases go by fast. To anything an opposing side would say the easiest rebuttal would be: Is it worth it? The answer being, yes, the efficiency and clarification on an important rule is always better.
• If a bad court decision has been made, it will be perpetuated as common law systems are all about following precedents. Changes will take a long time to happen, so in the mean time, a bad decision will continue to be upheld. Relation between common law and equity: Theoretically, the law of equity is a set of rules formed by the Court of Chancery so as to alleviate the severity that the common law system provided to the country. There is a particular relationship between the common law and
Some people argue that the cons of psychometric testing outweigh its pros. In many cases, top-notch applicants are ruled out of a job because psychometrics are used as a default barometer, with all subsequent decisions based on it. One of the biggest problems is that psychometric tests frequently contain biases that work against applicants from different cultural backgrounds, who face language barriers or even just simple anxiety about testing. They might sometimes be the best person for the job, but are automatically eliminated because of the process. Besides, the standard psychometric tests are already well known and easily accessed.
Kingston states in his book, “An important reason why intellectual property is far less effective for generating innovation than it could be is the excessively high cost of resolving disputes. This largely reflects the use of ordinary court arrangements to determine what are essentially technical issues.” Kingston also notes that in addition to the measurable costs of litigation, there also may be substantial unmeasured costs that take the form of “distraction, diversion of energy and misdirection of creativity that litigation imposes on innovatory firms.” Kingston proposed mandatory arbitration of patent disputes along with legal aid to the party that does not appeal the ruling to the courts. Kilb (1993) also recommended arbitration as a “…quick, efficient form of patent dispute resolution”...adding that “[A]n arbitration hearing before experts in the field allows the parties to avoid lengthy litigation that could leave the disputed patent out-dated before it reaches its
Court System Controversy Although there is a standard for courtrooms and how they should function it is, nevertheless, unrealistic and unable to be upheld due to bias, prejudice- either conscious or subconscious, and stereotyping. Initially, bias is using personal experiences to hold strong emotions toward a variety of groups of people. Bias can affect the court system in countless ways. For example, an individual may connect to the person on trial by race, gender, ethnicity or commonality between the defendant and someone from their personal life. May also occur with events and situations being discussed on trial.
Yet, sometimes it is really hard for the mind to analyze what actually occurred as to what one thinks happened. Gould remarks, “But certainty is also a great danger, given the notorious fallibility--and unrivaled power--of the human mind,” (Gould 1). Although Gould recognizes that his description of his memory is entirely wrong, he provides the example of how Elizabeth Loftus discovered that the mind is very powerful, but can at times fail to do its job properly. Therefore, in a way it was not entirely Gould’s fault for accidentally providing some falsify
In particular, Kerwin focused on the limitations of agencies, regulators, information, and Congress. Resolving the issues that may arise at each level of the rulemaking process, a product of the listed limitations, is often a complex and difficult task. In particular, the effects of a certain rule/regulation on the citizens in totality. If regulators choose to allow for appropriate time and analysis, the results of the rulemaking process will likely be proper rules/regulation. If regulators choose to ignore or shirk the complexity of the rulemaking process the potential for the results to be ill-fitting is particularly high.
Nils Christie’s view on modern law is that due to specialization, victims have lost the right to participate in their trials. Lawyers are becoming too involved in cases, taking conflicts away from parties and turning them into property. Christie states there there is less attention focused on the effects on the victim and more focus on the criminal’s background. Christie also states that getting a court to function is difficult while there are specialists present. According to Christie, parties become uneasy with handling their own social conflicts where they know there are professionals present who they believe can do a better job.
Although it can be seen as a reasonable theory to implement in times of controversy, there are a few issues that still arise from this theory. Some weaknesses include inconsistency, and lack of substantiation, but one of the biggest flaws of living constitutionalism as argued by originalists, is that judges are given too much power, and belittle the power of the legislature and the American people. The main question that arises is how does the public know that judges are the best representatives to comprehend the nations fundamental values? Judges are granted the responsibility to alter the meaning of the constitution based on their own personal motives and beliefs, and they have powers that are far beyond those of legislators, who were structured to ensure representation of the American people. Congress and judges come from different environments, and different motives.
