Law reform- official and non-official- comprises several components and involves a variety of activities. It is the process where law is shaped and modified over the time to display better social values that society feels are important to have. The legal system cannot stand still. A major function of the legal system is to respond to changing values and concerns within society, resolve their issues as they develop, tackle problems that occur in legal cases or events, promote equality and respond to scientific or technological developments. Research in law is an important component of the process of law reform.
In Benjamin Franklin’s speech, he uses some phrases that are able to support his opinion on the faults of the constitution. He is willing to change his opinions for the benefit of our people. Ben Franklin believes that opinions are changed over time because even his opinions were changed as he matured and took the opinions of others into consideration. He stated that “- to change opinions even on the important subjects, which I once thought were right, but found to be otherwise.” It is crucial that people not only consider their opinions when making a decision, but also the views of others.
Madison case implications was the establishment of a precedent, which is a legal decision to serve as an example in other court cases. The court is interpreted as having the power to review the acts of the congress as well as that of the president and thus can overrule the laws it finds to be unconstitutional. The bold ruling decision also established the Judiciary as an equal partner with the legislature and the Executive in completing the government system. In this regard, the constitution is the supreme law of the land and it is the Supreme Court that interprets the meaning of the constitution. It is, therefore, the duty of the judiciary to say what the law
Dr. George Buzzy said it best when he stated, “our culture is different than it used to be” (Buzzy, 2011) and to have the ability to deal with the multicultural differences and diversities that now exist in each and every community, the criminal justice system needs to be able to adapt and grow with the changes. Since communication is one of the most important factors both in the courts and police departments it would be only natural that they take on the responsibility of hiring those that are bilingual in order to be able to communicate with those that come into contact or enter the justice system. Learning about the different cultures and their values and beliefs because they “have a significant impact on the justice system” (Schmalleger, 2015, p. 26). 1 Corinthians 14: 10 “There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning” (Holy Bible ESV), this can also apply to the different cultures that make up this great nation. Taking the time and effort to learn more about these differences can prevent a lot of bias and stereotyping that most people accuse the police departments and courts of being guilty of.
The world has been developing in more effective and convenient ways. People prefer faster and more precise solutions to their problems. However, United States of America, one of the leading countries, is still using the imperial system (aka U.S. customary system) which many people claim as a complicated and imperfect measurement language. Since adapting the metric system will make conversions easier, help USA to take a greater advantage in international commerce and it is a measurement language used in the study of science and medication, United States of America should adapt the metric system as the main units of measurement. A unit of measurement is used to address the capacity, weight, length or etc.
Through the underlying themes such as; Treachery, economic depletion, gender presentation and technology. Individuals in society can make better connections between knowing forms of politics in theory. Comparatively, to applying these forms in contemporary issues of society. Even more, this show can help individuals make connections between gender, power, authority, and potentially other concepts and issues in world politics. Nevertheless, in this paper I will focus particularly with two seasons of the show.
The justices of the Supreme Court of the United States have the choice of following one of the two judicial philosophies when ruling on federal cases. Some justices prefer the philosophy of judicial activism which allows for the justices to go beyond the printed words of the constitution when interpreting the amendments and their meanings to allow them to slightly use their personal views of right and wrong. This is used in many major cases involving civil rights to conform to the times of change. Strict constructionism is the second judicial philosophy used by Supreme Court justices. When this philosophy is followed, justices typically adhere to what the constitution clearly states in black and white.
The Courts themselves must display prudence and moderation and be conscious of the need for comity of instrumentalities as basic to good governance. Judicial Activism has to be welcomed and its implications assimilated in letter and spirit. An active Court is surely more effective than a legal positivist conservative Court to protect the society against legislative adventurism and executive tyranny. When our chosen representatives have been fail to give us a welfare state, Judiciary plays an active role. In Judicial Activism, the judge places his final decisions with his heart and mind which is emotionally handled.
I will be discussing the differences between Rawls’ “A Theory of Justice” and Nozick’s “Entitlement Theory.” Not only that, I will also support why Nozick’s “Entitlement Theory” is the superior theory of Justice. Rawls’ “A Theory of Justice” is based on the idea that society cooperates with one another for mutual advantage. If society is a matter of cooperation between equals, the conditions need to be defended and any inequalities among the social positions must be justified. However, in order for the agreement to be secured, we need to eliminate any bias of the rich or the poor, or the religious and the atheist.
I’m referring to the medium to lesser charges, including drug charges and immigration. There is a whole spectrum however of those lesser charges those inmates could benefit from in this way of prison education. In conclusion, a change must be made to the way government runs the prisons and what could be beneficial to make this change and what is currently not working. The number of inmates is one of those changes that could be extremely beneficial, not only to society but also to those specific individuals who have minor charges and deserve a second chance. The women and men that do ever get this second chance at life, truly never get a real second chance if they are not assisted with tools to
For example, according to an article called Marriage and the Natural Family “…marriage becomes the foundation of social order.” This means that in order for civilization to be stabilized marriage has to exist since it also stated that commitment is the “very foundation of civilization itself.” Also research has shown that being married increases the chances for a person to live a longer life since it has been proved that it makes someone improve their health. This situation compares to the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley because just as in our world there are two sides of the situation. In the World State the citizens were conditioned to live their lives freely and without any commitment.
Being heard by a jury is difficult than being heard by a judge, the reason for that is that jury trials are more complicated. As long as Richard was given the correct guidance to what a jury trial is and what the consequences of going through such a trial he would have done great. A little respect in the court room goes a long way. Addressing the judge as “your honor” and not by last name is best. Being polite to the opponent would’ve helped Richard too.
In Robert Lowry Clinton’s book Marbury v. Madison and Judicial Review, the author describes the controversial ideal of judicial review that became a major power delegated to the Supreme Court following the case known as Marbury v. Madison. Clinton does this by tracing the origins of judicial review that preceded the court case, as well as describing the institution through the court case itself and its influence on future Supreme Court cases. Despite the court’s now famous history, Clinton claims in his book that there existed before, during and after the decision in Marbury v. Madison a generally agreed upon notion of judicial review in constitutional matters. Clinton believes that the Supreme Court case known as Marbury v. Madison was significant
The writers of the Federalist Papers were supporters of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Number 78 is Hamilton’s opinion on how the Judiciary Branch should be chosen and what type of character a judge should be and the relationships between the different courts. Hamilton’s view that the Judiciary Branch be independent, impartial and keep the liberty of the nation, would in fact get true Justices for the people. Hamilton stated that this branch of government is the “least dangerous.” The reason he stated this is because the judicial branch will be there to place judgement and interpretation of the laws created by our legislative branch.
