Assessment of physician-assisted death by members of the public prosecution in The Netherlands. (1/167)

OBJECTIVES: To identify the factors that influence the assessment of reported cases of physician-assisted death by members of the public prosecution. DESIGN/SETTING: At the beginning of 1996, during verbal interviews, 12 short case-descriptions were presented to a representative group of 47 members of the public prosecution in the Netherlands. RESULTS: Assessment varied considerably between respondents. Some respondents made more "lenient" assessments than others. Characteristics of the respondents, such as function, personal-life philosophy and age, were not related to the assessment. Case characteristics, i.e. the presence of an explicit request, life expectancy and the type of suffering, strongly influenced the assessment. Of these characteristics, the presence or absence of an explicit request was the most important determinant of the decision whether or not to hold an inquest. CONCLUSIONS: Although the presence of an explicit request, life expectancy and the type of suffering each influenced the assessment, each individual assessment was dependent on the assessor. The resulting danger of legal inequality and legal uncertainty, particularly in complicated cases, should be kept to a minimum by the introduction of some form of protocol and consultation in doubtful or boundary cases. The notification procedure already promotes a certain degree of uniformity in the prosecution policy.  (+info)

Ethical-legal problems of DNA databases in criminal investigation. (2/167)

Advances in DNA technology and the discovery of DNA polymorphisms have permitted the creation of DNA databases of individuals for the purpose of criminal investigation. Many ethical and legal problems arise in the preparation of a DNA database, and these problems are especially important when one analyses the legal regulations on the subject. In this paper three main groups of possibilities, three systems, are analysed in relation to databases. The first system is based on a general analysis of the population; the second one is based on the taking of samples for a particular list of crimes, and a third is based only on the specific analysis of each case. The advantages and disadvantages of each system are compared and controversial issues are then examined. We found the second system to be the best choice for Spain and other European countries with a similar tradition when we weighed the rights of an individual against the public's interest in the prosecution of a crime.  (+info)

Continuing professional development: medico-legal aspects of epilepsy. (3/167)

Generally protection against possible litigation and good clinical practice go hand in hand. Situations in which the law has special relevance for people with epilepsy, those who work with them, and their clinicians are reviewed with special reference to the topics of driving, employment, duties of social carers, the clinician's everyday role, the responsibilities of researchers and epilepsy and the criminal law. What constitutes professional negligence is discussed, with special reference to the United Kingdom. Clinicians are advised to think clearly, write clearly, communicate clearly and have a good relationship with their patients.  (+info)

Epilepsy--doctor's dilemma, lawyer's delight? Medico-legal consequences of practising in the field of epilepsy report of an International League Against Epilepsy British Branch meeting--Edinburgh, April 2000. (4/167)

Six cases are described where the medical management of a person's epilepsy was brought under legal scrutiny. Lessons learnt from this educational exercise include improving doctor patient communication, the function of a Coroner's Court, when is misdiagnosis negligent, the vagaries of expert witnesses, should failure to diagnose a tumour be blamed on the physician or the service when facilities are inadequate, is failure to recognise a rare drug interaction, failure to warn against an interaction, or failure to take a proper history, negligent? The conference also examined the legal ramifications of the nurse/doctor relationship in epilepsy care, the place of epilepsy guidelines and, due to its interactive nature, reflected on the audience's epilepsy knowledge, which, in places seemed significantly deficient. It was a gripping educational exercise.  (+info)

Neonatal euthanasia: moral considerations and criminal liability. (5/167)

Despite tremendous advances in medical care for critically ill newborn infants, caregivers in neonatal intensive care units still struggle with how to approach those patients whose prognoses appear to be the most grim, and whose treatments appear to be the most futile. Although the practice of passive neonatal euthanasia, from a moral perspective, has been widely (albeit quietly) condoned, those clinicians and families involved in such cases may still be found legally guilty of child abuse or even manslaughter. Passive neonatal euthanasia remains both a moral dilemma and a legal ambiguity. Even the definition of passive euthanasia remains unclear. This manuscript reviews the basic moral and legal considerations raised by the current practice of neonatal euthanasia, and examines the formal position statements of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. The paper concludes by emphasising the need, at least in the United States, to clarify the legal status of this relatively common medical practice.  (+info)

Uneasy promises: sexuality, health, and human rights. (6/167)

Although attention to the links between health and human rights is growing globally, the full potential of a progressive human rights approach to health has not yet been explored, and it is even more faintly understood in the United States than in the rest of the world. At the same time, global claims for sexual rights, particularly for those identifying as gay, lesbian, transsexual, or bisexual, are increasingly being made as human rights claims. All of these approaches to rights advocacy risk limiting their own transformative impact unless advocates critique their own strategies. Paradoxically, using health as a way to bring attention to nonheteronormative sexualities can be both helpful and potentially dangerous, especially when coupled with human rights. Recognizing sexuality as a critical element of humanity, and establishing a fundamental human right to health, can play a role in broader social justice claims, but the tendency of both public health and human rights advocacy to "normalize" and regulate must be scrutinized and challenged.  (+info)

Jails, prisons, and the health of urban populations: a review of the impact of the correctional system on community health. (7/167)

This review examined the interactions between the correctional system and the health of urban populations. Cities have more poor people, more people of color, and higher crime rates than suburban and rural areas; thus, urban populations are overrepresented in the nation's jails and prisons. As a result, US incarceration policies and programs have a disproportionate impact on urban communities, especially black and Latino ones. Health conditions that are overrepresented in incarcerated populations include substance abuse, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other infectious diseases, perpetration and victimization by violence, mental illness, chronic disease, and reproductive health problems. Correctional systems have direct and indirect effects on health. Indirectly, they influence family structure, economic opportunities, political participation, and normative community values on sex, drugs, and violence. Current correctional policies also divert resources from other social needs. Correctional systems can have a direct effect on the health of urban populations by offering health care and health promotion in jails and prisons, by linking inmates to community services after release, and by assisting in the process of community reintegration. Specific recommendations for action and research to reduce the adverse health and social consequences of current incarceration policies are offered.  (+info)

A capture-recapture study of the prevalence and implications of opiate use in Dublin. (8/167)

BACKGROUND: To date there have been no studies estimating the hidden prevalence of opiate use in Dublin. METHODS: A multisource enumeration followed by the application of the capture-recapture method with log-linear modelling including age and gender stratification to remove heterogeneity was implemented to provide an estimate of the unknown size of the opiate-using population. Two medical and one legal data sources were used. RESULTS: It was found that the ratio of known to unknown opiate users was 1:1.15 with a total of 13,460 (95% CI: 12,037-15,306) users estimated in Dublin in 1996. CONCLUSION: The findings of this study have important ramifications for service delivery.  (+info)

Scots criminal law governs the rules of criminal law in Scotland. Scottish criminal law relies far more heavily on common law than in England and Wales. Scottish criminal law includes offences against the person of murder, culpable homicide, rape and assault, offences against property such as theft and malicious mischief, and public order offences including mobbing and breach of the peace. Scottish criminal law can also be found in the statute books of the UK Parliament with some areas of criminal law, such as misuse of drugs and traffic offences appearing identical on both sides of the Border. Scottish criminal law can also be found in the statute books of the Scottish Parliament such as the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 asp 9 and Prostitution (Public Places) (Scotland) Act 2007 asp 11 which only apply to Scotland. In fact, the Scots requirement of corroboration in criminal matters changes the practical prosecution of crimes derived from the same enactment. Corroboration is not required ...
Traditionally criminal law has a national character and reflects national values and goods -its relationship with national sovereignty remains very close until present days. Nevertheless, in todays globalisation age the criminal law in EU is examined with regard to possibility to ensure effectiveness of EU aims and politics. Criminal law requires not to use notions which are not clear: neither of legal acts nor of legal practises. Therefore, it is very important to describe the boundaries of this principle because the principle of effectiveness serves as a distinguishing sign between national criminal law and EU law in competence matters.. This article focuses on the principle of effectiveness in EU criminal law. Nowadays it is usually understood as doctrine of effectiveness or one of the most important principles in EU. The principle of effectiveness is directly linked to the effectiveness of criminal sanctions - the ability by the means of punishment to ensure the proper implementation of ...
Criminal Law is a compulsory module in the LLB programme. The aim of this module is to enable students to state and apply the rules of the English criminal law dealt with in the course accurately and relevantly, and to accurately explain recent actual and proposed changes to this area of law. It will also enable students to appreciate the wider contextual issues related to criminal law and to compare and contrast that law accurately and relevantly with the equivalent areas of any other legal system with which the student is familiar. Finally, the module will also allow students to undertake legal research to acquire knowledge of the key components of the criminal law, and to further utilise that knowledge by applying it to hypothetical factual scenarios involving the criminal law.. ...

This chapter analyzes the consequences of the same body of law being utilized by different entities for different purposes. It specifically compares the use of international criminal law by international criminal courts and by human rights commissions of inquiry. The chapter first situates modern human rights commissions of inquiry within the broader institutional fact-finding framework of the UN and examines how these make use of international criminal law. The approaches of various commissions are then compared and contrasted with judicial approaches, especially in terms of their interpretation and application of international criminal law. The slightly divergent approaches of commissions of inquiry are justified through the idea of

First published in 1886, Stevensons novella concerns a distinguished Victorian doctor, Jekyll, who despairs over his urges to indulge in vice. Jekyll devises a potion that splits the good and evil sides of his personality into ...
CRIMINAL LAW. By criminal, or penal, law is now understood the law as to the definition, trial and punishment of crimes, i.e. of acts or omissions forbidden by law which affect injuriously public rights, or constitute a breach of duties due to the whole community. The sovereign is taken to be the person injured by the crime, as he represents the whole community, and prosecutions are in his name. Criminal law includes the rules as to the prevention, the investigation, prosecution and punishment of crime. It lays down what constitutes a criminal offence, what proof is necessary to establish the fact of a criminal offence and the culpability of the offender, what excuse or justification for the act or omission can be legally admitted, what procedure should be followed in a criminal court, what degrees and kinds of punishment should be imposed for the various offences which come up for trial. Finally, it regulates the constitution of the tribunals established for the trial of offences according to ...

Second Reading. Today, I introduce the Criminal Law Consolidation (Assaults on Prescribed Emergency Workers) Amendment Bill 2019. The bill is incredibly important in providing assurance to our front-line emergency workers by better protecting the states police, emergency services workers, front-line medical officers and other law enforcement officers from assaults. The major purpose of this bill is to create a new offence in the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935 where a person spits at or throws or otherwise applies blood, saliva, semen, faeces or urine on a prescribed emergency worker in the course of their duties.. Unfortunately, such an assault is all too common for our front-line police and emergency service workers, with spit, blood, urine or faeces being used to harm police and other officers whilst in their line of duty. I thank the Commissioner for Police for raising this unattended concern with me for action and welcome the stand-alone offence being created in this bill.. Whilst our ...

The state has 31 mental health courts, with several more in the planning stage. A study of the first one in Brooklyn found participants were 46 percent less likely to be re-arrested than other defendants, according to the Center for Court Innovation, a criminal justice reform non-profit.. Judge Edwina Mendelson, the states Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for Justice Initiatives, said since the state began using mental health courts, more than 12,000 defendants have entered them and more than 6,000 successfully completed their programs.. They leave with the tools to take care of themselves, their families and meaningfully contribute to our communities, she said.. As part of the court, defendants will be connected with counseling, addiction treatment, medication management or other treatment options. It is the second mental health court to open in the Capital Region, following Schenectady Countys, which began in 2004.. ...
Introduction. Sports Assignment Question 2 Taking selected areas of the civil and or criminal law, evaluate whether sportsmen and women are treated differently from the general public in proceedings that have their origin on the field of play. Answer Sport plays a major part in the culture of todays society. Many people spend considerable time in front of the television, in sports grounds and traveling all over the country to support their respective club whether it be football, rugby, cricket or netball etc. However whilst playing, spectating or just generally being involved in a sport, things can go wrong and this very often results in an action in the civil or criminal courts. Sporting incidents should be dealt with like any other civil or criminal action, however there is evidence this is not happening in many cases in both areas of law. There can be several areas of civil law where claims can be made. These are Negligence, occupiers liability, defamation, nuisance, trespass and animals. ...

The result, as Stuntz famously put it elsewhere, is modern criminal codes that cover everything and decide nothing. To put it differently, it is not the criminal law today that determines what conduct merits punishment. That all-important determination is punted to politically accountable prosecutors, who are unique in our system in having enormous, virtually unchecked power over the lives, liberty, and property of citizens. Once prosecutors have decided to pursue criminal charges, it is overwhelmingly likely that the accused will be convicted - so much so, in fact, that the vast majority of persons accused of crimes (well in excess of ninety percent) plead guilty rather than take their chances at trial. The small share who do insist on holding the state to its burden of proof almost always end up convicted anyway, receiving worse sentences than they would have had they waived their rights and pled guilty on the prosecutors terms ...

The structure of part of a DNA double helixA stunning report was issued by the Department of Justice in 1996, reporting on 28 cases of men whod been convicted of violent sex crimes, including murder, and were then freed from prison based on DNA tests.by J.J. Maloney These 28 cases could be the tip of an iceberg -- since the report points out there are still states that do not accept DNA evidence. Additionally, many convicted men cannot find an attorney to go to bat for them, or the resources to pay for testing. There also is no codified method for routine DNA testing for cases that have been long resolved. Finally, many jurisdictions routinely destroy all evidence after appeals have been exhausted. The importance of this report, however, is that it challenges societys underlying assumptions about criminal law. The first, and most important, assumption to be challenged is the credibility of eye-witness testimony. In case after case, the rape victim made a firm identification of the assailant -- the

This chapter of Women in Canada explores the criminal victimization of women and girls as well as their involvement in the criminal justice system as offenders. It covers the types of criminal victimization experienced by females over time; where possible, highlighting important differences in violent crime by Aboriginal identity, immigrant status, visible minority status and age. The use of formal and informal support services is explored, including changes over time in the use of police services. This chapter also reports trends in the number and types of crimes committed by females, along with their involvement in the criminal courts and correctional systems.
Considerable literature has addressed the issue of the criminal justice systems involvement in incidents of domestic violence. Victims of more severe forms of violence are more inclined to call the police than are victims of lesser crimes. Discussing the decisions that police officers must make in order to decide who should be arrested for domestic violence, the article suggests that police are more likely to respond to the claims of assaults against intimates than they are to claims of assaults against strangers. A study was conducted using the redesigned National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). The NCVS uses a rotating panel sample design in which respondents are interviewed every 6 months for a total of seven interviews over a 3-year period. Multivariate analyses of the NCVS indicate that police officers are more likely to be called in cases of domestic violence when the violence represents a single incident and if an injury results from the violence. When looking at the criminal justice ...

More than just condemning the International Criminal Court (ICC) for its past prosecutions that have not reached beyond the geographic scope of Africa,[ii] this article shows that the ICC is both structurally and materially biased in favour of the West and instrumentalised by the United Nations Security Council in a continuous attempt to reinforce the existing global imbalance of power.. In a follow-up to Part I of this series, which problematised the development of modern ICL from a TWAIL perspective and showed that the international criminal legal order has been a Eurocentric, hegemonic project since its very beginning, Part II problematises the functioning of the ...
Study Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine adolescent sexual assault survivors help-seeking experiences with the legal and medical systems in two Midwestern communities that have different models of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE)/Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) interventions. The specific aims of the study were to examine: (1) adolescent survivors initial disclosure(s) of the assault and their pathways to seeking help from SANE and the legal system; (2) survivors experiences with SANE program personnel during their medical forensic exams; and (3) survivors experiences reporting the assault to the police and their continued involvement in the criminal justice system by examining what factors predicted the prosecution of reported incidents of sexual assault against adolescent victims. Study Design: Dataset 1 (Qualitative Victim Interviews) of this study utilized qualitative methodology to understand adolescent sexual assault victims experiences with Sexual Assault Nurse ...
Drawing on research from Northumbria Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies (NCECJS), this seminar will identify the key mechanisms of international criminal justice cooperation that assist with the policing of cross-border crime, identifying future challenges and potential solutions. This will include: the impact of Brexit on criminal justice cooperation and policing; the ongoing role of supra-national organisations for criminal justice cooperation (including Eurojust and Europol); and the continuing development of new areas of cross border criminality, including the continuing development of cyber-crime as an example of offending which can often involve multiple jurisdictions and investigations.. NCECJS has developed a significant reputation for research on international criminal justice cooperation. The Centres assessment of implications of Brexit for the continued exchange of data with police and judicial authorities within the EU was quoted extensively in a report published ...

The but for test is being considered by five Supreme Court justices right now.. The legal principle will inevitably be familiar to law students of all levels. Spanning both civil and criminal law, the but for test broadly asks: But for the actions of the defendant (X), would the harm (Y) have occurred? If Ys existence depends on X, the test is satisfied and causation demonstrated. If Y would have happened regardless of X, the defendant cannot be liable. If you cant recall the test, you might recall the cases associated with it. The most notable tort law case on this is Barnett v Chelsea & Kensington Hospital, in which a hospital escaped a finding of negligence after sending a seriously ill man home from A&E. Though the man later died of arsenic poisoning, the courts decided he would have died even if he had been examined and admitted for treatment. Over on the criminal law side of things we have R v White, a case about a defendant who tried to kill his mother by slipping poison in her ...
He said that : I engaged him as my lawyer after a lawyer from my place who I initially took into confidence betrayed me.. As my counsel, he defeated many Senior Advocates of Nigeria, some of whom are yet to recover from the shock of defeat in court.. In fact, some of those opposed to us ended up sacking their lawyers, so he is, to me, a reliable and talented lawyer who is worthy of emulation by others .. The Chief Judge of the FCT High Court, Justice Ibrahim Bukar, said the books would become indispensable reference tool in legal research in Nigeria and beyond.. Represented by Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the FCT High Court, he said: The true and real legacies of these books will be realised when their readers surpass themselves.. ...
In criminal law, diminished responsibility (or diminished capacity) is a potential defense by excuse by which defendants argue that although they broke the law, they should not be held fully criminally liable for doing so, as their mental functions were diminished or impaired. The defenses acceptance in American jurisdictions varies considerably. The majority of states have adopted it by statute or case decision, and a minority even recognise broader defenses such as irresistible impulse. Some American states restrict the defense to the charge of murder only where a successful defense will result in a manslaughter conviction instead of murder. Until recently, the Republic of Ireland did not accept the partial defense. The Irish Supreme Court had rejected the existence of the defense in DPP v OMahony.[1] The case was recently abrogated, however, by enactment of the Criminal Law (Insanity) Act 2006, effective June 1, 2006. The act, in pertinent part, specifically adopted the partial defense ...

The report concludes that changes are needed if the juvenile justice system is to meet its aims of holding adolescents accountable, preventing reoffending, and treating them fairly. In addition to their past actions, minors are viewed through a different lens, in terms of their ability to be rehabilitated in the future. Models for Change is an ambitious multi-state juvenile justice system reform initiative, launched in 2004 by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation with the goal of accelerating the nations progress toward more rational, fair, effective, and developmentally appropriate responses to young people in conflict with the law. The report, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, finds that our current juvenile justice system, which relies heavily on confinement (much like the criminal justice system), routinely deprives youth of three conditions that are critically important to healthy adolescent development: active ...

Studies have shown that approximately 25 percent of youth entering the juvenile justice system have mental health needs. The prevalence of symptoms of mental disorders is greater among youth in higher security levels, and it is higher for girls than boys. Also, between 70 percent and 90 percent of youth in the justice system report lifetime use of alcohol and/or illicit drugs; approximately 50 percent have indicated substance use in the past year. Mental disorders and substance abuse often co-occur in youth involved with the juvenile justice system. Most States have developed or are developing mental health assessments for youth entering the juvenile justice system. To date, these efforts have been limited mostly to screening processes that identify problem symptoms. The chapter lists the questions that should be asked when choosing an assessment instrument. Substance abuse screening instruments enable juvenile justice personnel to assess the likelihood of a substance abuse problem. Such ...

Alabamas criminal justice system operates as an oppressive trap for thousands every year. Courts and various other systems are funded on the backs of people convicted of crimes, even though a criminal conviction severely diminishes a persons work prospects. Alternative court programs are expensive for participants and are too often unavailable. The court system criminalizes many people who need mental health care instead. And nonviolent crimes can result in life imprisonment under Alabamas cruel, overly punitive Habitual Felony Offender Act (HFOA).. Arise has been working to reform the states criminal justice system by increasing access to alternative courts, diverting people who arent a threat to others from incarceration, and removing shortsighted policies that try to squeeze every dime from people who cant afford to pay a penny. This year, the ACLU of Alabama urges Arise to add a specific sentencing reform to this issue: Repeal the HFOA.. The HFOA is Alabamas three-strikes law. It ...

Second, in order to be appointed to cases of a certain level you must have been counsel or co-counsel on 4 cases of the same level. This apparently breaks down to misdemeanors, JDR court matters, felonies, and capital cases. That should prove to be a significant entry barrier. Many people who try to get on lists now are civil attorneys who are dabbling because our firm believes in giving something back or new attorneys who are trying to get their feet under them and therefore are putting in some time in the criminal courts. The practice of criminal law will probably consolidate in firms where an established criminal lawyer can mentor a young lawyer for the year or two it might take to get him through four felonies as co-counsel. I cannot wait to see established attorneys at the front of the courtroom with their new associates taking care of driving suspended charges so that the associates can get four co-counsel misdemeanors under their belts ...
In 1971, President Nixon infamously declared a War on Drugs. This catalyzed an aggressive spike in incarceration rates, which increased the U.S. prison population by over 500% in just a few decades. The United States now has a staggering prison population that is six times larger than most other Western countries, making it the nation the highest rate of incarceration in the industrialized world. Not all American communities experience the effects of mass incarceration equally, however, and the unique way women experience mass-incarceration is particularly under-discussed.. Many studies of post-Nixon era mass incarceration have particularly focused on the ways men of color are effected by mass incarceration. In fact, an entire book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, examines this troubling reality and argues that the current, disproportionate imprisonment of this population is an extension of racist policies perpetuated in the Jim Crow ...

Jodoin. Criminal law: The respondent, a lawyer, was representing clients charged with driving while intoxicated. In 2013, after a hearing in the Court of Quebec on a motion for the disclosure of evidence, the respondent filed in the Superior Court, on behalf of his clients, motions for writs of prohibition challenging the jurisdiction of the Court of Quebec judge. The Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions objected to these motions. The Quebec Superior Court dismissed the motions for writs of prohibition, and the Quebec Court of Appeal allowed the appeal solely to set aside the award of costs against the respondent. ...

As reported in The Age, Monash researchers including Dr Anna Eriksson, are recipients of a grant to examine the experience of those with acquired brain injury in the Victorian criminal justice system, particularly in Victorian prisons.. It has been recognised that there is a higher percentage of acquired brain injury amongst Victorian prisoners than the rate within the general community (42 per cent of men and 33 percent of women; compared to 2 percent in the general community), yet little is known about diagnosis and specialise support provided within and outside the prison system.. Criminologys Anna Eriksson, together with Gaye Lansdell (Law) and Bernadette Saunders (Social Work) are leading this research. It will be conducted in 2014 as part of a suite of research projects seeking to ultimately identify how best to support those with acquired brain injury in the community and avoid contact with the criminal justice system.. ...
