Ohio Lemon Law - 1,699 words
In 1994, the National Association of Attorneys General conducted a nationwide survey that placed problems with automobiles as the number one consumer complaint. "Somewhere between 2 - 30% of all new domestic and foreign vehicles sold each year have substantial performance or safety problems that cannot be readily repaired." State lemon laws provide consumers with courses of action they can take when they have purchased a defective automobile, motor home, or motorcycle. If a vehicle fails to comply with its warranty, or the use, value, or safety is substantially impaired, then the state's lemon law has set forth steps the consumer can take to be compensated for the problems. Lemon laws allow ...

Big Oil And Bus Ethics - 1,760 words
It can be argued (convincingly) that human's usage of fossil fuels is responsible for a large part of the world's pollution problems. The area that I will discuss is the interaction that the big oil companies have had with the environment surrounding their businesses in Alaska. I will not tackle the issue of whether it is right or wrong to extract or use fossil fuels. Instead, I will ignore the larger issue and concentrate on specific issues concerning the Arctic Slope activities of oil companies in Alaska. Because the North Slope oil fields are on American soil, the regulation of the industrial activities is far more stringent than other areas in the world. If we compared the North Slope oi ...

Hemingways Man - 1,451 words
Hemingway's exploration of Man in The Sun Also Rises 'It's really an awfully simple operation, Jig,' the man said. 'It's not really an operation at all.' Much of Hemingway's body of work grows from issues of male morality. In his concise, "Hills Like White Elephants," a couple discusses getting an abortion while waiting for a train in a Spanish rail station bar. Years before Roe v. Wade, before the issues of abortion rights, mothers' rights, and unborn children's rights splashed across the American mass consciousness, Ernest Hemingway assessed the effects of abortion on a relationship, and, more specifically, he examined a man's role in determining the necessity of the procedure and its impa ...

Tobacco Industry - 1,146 words
Tobacco has been used for enjoyment for thousands of years. Native Americans are believed to be the first to use tobacco. Over the years the use of tobacco has become so widespread that is can be found in nearly every country. The tobacco industries have provided a very harmful product to the public. The US Government should regulate the tobacco industry because tobacco is hazardous to the American public and because they have conducted their business practices in an unethical and immoral fashion. The tobacco industries argue that they have their legal rights and they have only been providing a product enjoyed by millions of Americans for years. Christopher Proctor, of British American Tobac ...

Slavery In Greece Rome And Africa - 1,613 words
... were provisions made for the freedwoman. She could leave her patron and marry, but only with his consent. Islamic law provided a number of ways in which a slave could be set free. One was manumission, accomplished by a formal declaration on the part of the master and recorded in a certificate. This certificate was given to the liberated slave. The manumission of a slave included the offspring of that slave. If there was any uncertainty about an act of manumission, the slave has the benefit of the doubt. Another method is a written agreement by which the master grants liberty in return for a fixed sum. Once such an agreement had been reached, the master no longer held charge over the slav ...

Hammurabi - 448 words
The formers of the Hammurabis Code of Laws surely created strict rules with severe punishments for their violation. In fact, these laws played a big role in organization of Mesopotamian society. Reading these laws, reader may learn about ideals people of Mesopotamia had about crimes, their attitude to the lower and higher social classes, and legal rights between men and women. Reading the laws I noticed that many crimes were punished by death penalty. Many laws tell that guilty person has to pay the same price for the physical harm one did to another person or ones relative (laws 196, 197, 229, 230). For instance: law 196 states: If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put ...

... es were made slaves! Slaves were among the first articles of trade. They were traded all over the world. Slaves were among the first articles of trade between the primitive Celts and Germans, also including their southern neighbors. It was also well established in Homeric Greece, in preliterate China and Japan, and in the prehistoric Near East. Heredity slavery dated from earliest times in every Old World civilization. In ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, slaves were mainly captured aliens who were rarely used productively except in the households of the upper-classes.

Reconstruction - 1,330 words
The Era of Reconstruction following the Civil War was a period marked by an intense struggle to restore a worn-out and devastated society. The war, which was aimed at confronting the national problem of slavery, only led to subsequent dilemmas over emancipation and an undefined condition of freedom. Some had naively believed that ending slavery would solve the problem of racial inequality, overlooking the prejudice and uninviting atmosphere towards blacks. Questions over how to reinstate a disloyal population with the fall of the Confederacy and restore a destroyed southern territory rang throughout the nation. Although the former slaves were undeniably freed, the foundations for a racial de ...

When a company's interest are the same as those of an individual employee, in-house lawyers generally can avoid multiple-representation problems. But once there is a conflict of interest -- or a perception of a conflict -- the picture changes dramatically. It is important for in-house counsel to know how to spot such conflicts and what steps to take in response. Corporate counsel clients normally include the company, its board of directors, its most senior management, the heads of the company's various business divisions, its employees and even its former employees. All of these clients deserve quality representation in every matter, from the most fundamental to the most vexing. With this br ...

Leonard Peltier Case - 1,589 words
One of the modern Native Americans' most prominent leaders, Leonard Peltier, was arrested in the summer of 1975 and eventually sentenced to two life terms for a crime many believe he did not commit. The conviction and imprisonment of Leonard Peltier is an injustice. His prosecution by the United States government represents yet another attempt to snuff out American Indian culture and leaders. The outspokenness of Peltier and other AIM members may be the only reason why Leonard Peltier has sat in prison for the last 24 years. Leonard Peltier is a Native American of mixed blood, being approximately 75 percent Sioux blood. His early life could be there story of almost any Native American growin ...
