It was the latest in a string of moments that unfolded around the election which some in the media have said borders on sedition. But according to Jennifer Stepp Breen, an associate professor at the Syracuse University School of Law, simply calling for a revolution is not against the law.
There must be something in addition to that," Breen said Watch the interview. Federal and state officials are attempting to undo years-old deals that they claim violated antitrust laws even though the FTC investigated and approved them, a process that presages a very long legal fight.
The unique competition will feature an even number of American and European law schools competing against each other in a contest that simulates legal negotiations. Applications are now open for interested law schools. Competitors will be notified by Jan. Each simulation consists of a common set of facts known by all participants as well as confidential information known only to the participants representing a particular side.

Nina Kohn, a professor specializing in elder law at Syracuse University, said some outbreaks could be avoided if nursing homes had consistent, full-time staff who work with only a few residents.
The current set-up in most nursing homes has left residents isolated from those they need most — their families — but still vulnerable to catching the virus from rotating staff, Kohn said. Of all the areas that may benefit from artificial intelligence or be damaged by it, national security might be the most important. They may not rely on it enough or they may rely on it too much. Adopting a realistic approach in assessing how the law can be used, or even misused, to regulate this new technology, Baker covers—among other topics—national security process, constitutional law, the law of armed conflict, arms control, and academic and corporate ethics.
Using his own background as Chief Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, Baker examines potential points of contention and litigation in an area where the law is still evolving and might not yet provide clear and certain answers. Biden Jr. James Baker provides an extraordinary and timely roadmap for how to think about the intersection of the law and artificial intelligence. What is exceptional about this work is his focus on how to use the law as a tool for making wiser and more strategic decisions regarding the use of AI in national security.
The decision comes 30 years after the U. Continuing disputes over who deserves to be protected by the ADA and what it requires have resulted in a host of U. Professor Shubha Ghosh recently addressed the 4th International Conference on New Frontiers of Sanskrit and Indic Knowledge, a production of the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth, dedicated to "the preservation of Indian cultural heritage and its knowledge traditions through higher education.

For the second year—in his capacity as an affiliated researcher at aChord-Social Psychology for Social Change—Professor Doron Dorfman has led a study on attitudes toward disability in Israel and the state of disabled Israelis.
Co-authored by Dorfman, Malkito Azene, and Dr. Among their findings, the authors report that the research results continue a four-year trend of steady improvement in perceptions, emotions, and behavior toward people with disabilities. That positivity continued into the COVID pandemic: "The analysis of the perceptions and experiences of people with disabilities with regard to the COVID pandemic demonstrate that during the first lockdown, there was a rise in the sense of community among both disabled and non-disabled Israelis.
However, the report also highlights continuing underemployment of people with disabilities, a situation exacerbated by the pandemic. Their findings, they hope, will provide an empirical basis to develop laws and policies designed to promote the rights and well-being of Israelis with disabilities. On Dec. Syracuse University and the College of Law have signed a memorandum of understanding MOU with three institutions from the Republic of Uzbekistan to strengthen academic ties with the republic, share expertise on disability rights, and collaborate to create a disability law clinic at Tashkent State University of Law.

Judge Thompson brings years of experience in the Family Division and municipal court to his new assignment. But within this divided nation are over 60 million people who are demanding the same thing — the right to live among us.
They are children and adults with disabilities. The United Nations designated today, Dec. It is a day for all of us to think about how we as a country, as local communities, and as individuals, support the rights of people with disabilities. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which seeks to extend the promise of the American dream to people with disabilities.
The DeWitt Town Board recently approved the opening of small four-person home for adults with developmental disabilities. They did the right thing. But it was not easy. Some neighbors of the proposed home appeared before the board to oppose it — not because they had anything against people with disabilities, they claimed.
They are worried about property values, increased traffic and safety. People with disabilities and their families have heard this all before. The difference between then and now is that we have laws that ban such practices.
Today, it is illegal to treat someone differently because of their disability — whether it is when they apply for a job, seek to enroll in college or try to move into your neighborhood But one elder care expert says more needs to be done. As of Wednesday, there were active outbreaks and 2, positive residents and 3, positive staff members.

Michael Flynn promoted that exact idea Tuesday evening when he tweeted a press release from an Ohio-based conservative political organization It has not been invoked in the U. Just Security Dec. He has also pledged to integrate climate change into national security decision-making. At the same time, Biden may ultimately face a GOP Senate, depending on the outcome of the runoff elections in Georgia.
This would strike a blow to his boldest climate ambitions—and may undermine the passage of comprehensive climate legislation. If this comes to pass, executive branch action will take on heightened importance. I highlight four below, to include:. Kerry has unique climate experience. As secretary of state, he played a leadership role in the successful Paris Climate negotiations.
Spears has some star-spangled support in either the bid for her freedom or even mere transparency about the conditions of her ongoing legal status and how she might emerge from it. The Washington Post Nov. It was an eyebrow-raising modern twist on journalism from the former Washington Post reporter who, with partner Bob Woodward in the s, penned scoops that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon The transition of presidential power is the process during which the president-elect of the United States prepares to take over the administration of the federal government of the United States from the incumbent president.
The peaceful transition of government has long been a hallmark of American democracy. In what has become an unfortunately common refrain, has proven different. For weeks following the election being called for Joe Biden, the Trump administration refused to begin the transition process. It was in these circumstances that this episode was recorded.
WAER Nov. ILC not only gives Goldsmith hands-on legal training, but also enables him to help innovators, entrepreneurs and companies bring their ideas to life. For more than 30 years, ILC has been a pioneer in technology commercialization law, which encompasses the legal, business and technical aspects of product development. Students like Goldsmith work with faculty experts at ILC, which advises more than 60 clients a year, ranging from startups and established companies to federal laboratories and other research institutions.
Most clients, he says, seek out ILC for actionable research analysis about early-stage technologies. Recent projects include an amphibious, all-terrain vehicle; a wind tunnel simulation-testing tool; a gas turbine for an unmanned aerial system; and an at-home catheterization and sterilization system.
Either way, ILC provides something of value at little or no cost. He recently proved his interdisciplinary mettle by conducting marketing research for several ILC clients, including a major cybersecurity firm. I like to put myself in their shoes and wonder how their invention might look to an angel investor or a venture capitalist.
The first in the nation to apply scholarly legal analysis and experiential education to product commercialization, ILC has enjoyed a strong upward trajectory. We went from six to 60 clients almost overnight. Ergo his emphasis on effective client management—asking the right questions at the right time to achieve clarity and understanding.

Workplace accommodations, vital for employees with disabilities, promote diversity and inclusion efforts in organizations. This article examines who requests accommodations and who is more likely to have requests granted. Using data from a national survey of U. We also estimate differences in odds according to individual characteristics, adjusting for control variables.
Personal identity factors, such as disability status, gender, and age, predict requests for accommodations. Odds of requesting accommodations were higher for women and people with disabilities as compared to men and those without disabilities, but lower for older individuals. Odds of requesting accommodations were higher for an older population segment—older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer LGBQ lawyers—than for younger lawyers.
Accommodations were granted differentially to individuals with multiple marginalized identities. Counter to predictions, being a person with a disability is negatively associated with having an accommodation granted. Longer tenure increases the odds of requesting accommodations. Working for a private organization decreases the odds; working for a large organization generally increases the odds.
Those most needing accommodations, such as lawyers with disabilities and women, are more likely to request accommodations. View the CNY Central story here. November is Global Entrepreneurship Week — a week-long festival that celebrates and cultivates national and global entrepreneurship ecosystems.

His scholarship will address lessons learned during the first 20 years after the Sept. This is a remarkable run by a remarkable public servant—no wonder President Barack Obama awarded Matt a Presidential Rank Award in for his work applying law and democratic values to the function of domestic security and intelligence.
Syracuse Common Council appoints its part-time lawyer, Ronnie White, as new councilor. He has a law degree from Syracuse University. The Americans With Disabilities Act ADA of was ambitious federal legislation designed to promote employment inclusion, along with increased civic and social opportunity in other areas of daily life, by reducing attitudinal and structural barriers for people with disabilities. Today, the accommodation principle means using remote work options, as well as flexible hours and individualized reasonable adjustments to tasks and technologies, to enable full and equal economic participation across the spectrum of disabilities.
On Sept. The special JOOR series provides historical and contemporary perspectives on emergent issues involving people with disabilities who have the capacity and interest to work. Unfortunately, many are still unable to participate in the economic mainstream even with the availability of workplace accommodations such as remote work and individualized adjustments.
The articles highlight emerging research, policy and law on the future of employment and the accommodation principle for people with disabilities, envisioning a potential future of full disability-inclusive employment. Marketwatch Nov. Law Nov. The specific allegations against Amazon are in some ways unique to that company because of its access to the business information of potential rivals, according to Shubha Ghosh, head of the Syracuse Intellectual Property Law Institute at Syracuse University College of Law.
While antitrust professionals have spent years discussing the prospects for accusing companies of violating antitrust laws through algorithms that automatically adjust pricing based on public information about competitors, the allegations against Amazon are based on its access to nonpublic data. This is an opportunity to start making the first active steps towards career goals no matter your preferred practice.

Baker joined the U. Marine Corps at the age of 18 after spotting several recruitment brochures on the floor of the college post office. He started his military career as an infantry officer in the Marine Corps and subsequently joined the staff of Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan. He was a judge on the U. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, a federal civilian court that hears military justice appeals, for 15 years before retiring in It was Sen. I want to live in a democracy and in a country that's governed by law.
He says he encountered only a single veteran on the faculty of the other law schools where he taught. The military is the most diverse institution I have ever been associated with, which is likely one reason it puts so much emphasis on character, commitment and competence as virtues—not where you are from, your school or who your parents are. As the Orange community celebrates Veterans Day, Baker reflects on those who have served a greater good.
They hold a special place for all of us on Veterans Day. But attending the same law school at the same time is much more unique. Scott is a veteran of the U. Army, retiring as a captain after serving both as enlisted and an officer. Still, attending law school was always at the back of his mind. When he learned about the flexibility offered through the JDi program, and with his two daughters in high school and college, he decided it was time to go for it.
For Lauren, the path to law school was more direct. She entered her undergraduate studies at University of Florida knowing that she wanted to pursue law and came to the College of Law this fall, just a few months after graduating. And when the time came for Lauren to apply for law schools, Scott was already in the middle of his first year at the College of Law. As a student, how can you walk by the building without an incredible sense of pride that this university supports and embraces veterans?
Joseph R. Biden, who received a juris doctor from the College of Law in , is the first Syracuse University alumnus to hold the highest office in the country.

We need you.
Go Orange! The award is conferred on alumni and friends of the college for extraordinary career accomplishments and service to the college, Syracuse University, the legal profession and society as a whole. Newsweek Nov. This will be the first step for Biden in his undertaking of the mammoth task of undoing four years worth of environmental deregulation Mark P. Nevitt, associate professor of law at Syracuse University who specializes in climate change law and policy, previously told Newsweek that a Biden win would represent the "first real chance" of climate change legislation for many years.
Climate legislation would be viewed as a legacy item—not unlike Obama's Affordable Care Act. The U. The world needs U. But for those times it does come up with friends or family, what do you do? Keith Bybee, a political professor and the Vice Dean of the University College of Law, has researched this topic extensively. When it comes to politics, Bybee said it comes down to one thing, civility. The problem with that is many people have different ideas of what respectable behavior should look like.
It all comes back to how you were raised, Bybee said The tighter outcome almost guarantees litigation from either side, which is distressing to associate professor Jenny Breen. It always makes me kind of depressed when there's a lot of litigation.
Breen says there are other important roles for lawyers to play, such as volunteering to be a poll watcher, poll worker, or to advocate for voter access Listen to the segment. San Francisco Chronicle Nov. She said she expects the campaign to ask state courts, and ultimately the Supreme Court, to disqualify some ballots that have already been counted.
Jackson Walker is pleased to announce that Emilio B. Nicolas has been selected for inclusion in the The Best Lawyers in America. Just Security Nov. So help me God. Schlesinger was particularly concerned about orders pertaining to nuclear command and The Trump Administration, which is to say President Trump, has renewed interest in the subject of nuclear command and control and more generally the question of lawful orders.
In , the then Commander of U. Strategic Command was asked about the scenarios in which he might advise, or even push back against, the President in a discussion on nuclear matters. General John E. We think about these things a lot. When you have this responsibility how do you not think about it? And so — but what people forget is this is a military mission and a military function. And since the day I joined the service, 36 years ago, every year I get trained in a law of armed conflict. And the law of armed conflict has certain principles and necessities, distinction, proportionality, unnecessary suffering.
All those things are defined. And we get, you know, for 20 years it was the William Calley thing that we were trained on because if you execute an unlawful order you will go to jail. You could go to jail for the rest of your life.
It applies to nuclear weapons. It applies to small arms. It applies to small unit tactic. It applies to everything and we apply it as we go through it. The way the process works is this simple: I provide advice to the President. More recently, the clearing of protesters in Lafayette Square, the advent of protest movements across the country following the death of George Floyd, and statements by President Trump about the electoral process have prompted questions about when and in what contexts the President may lawfully order U.
Armed Forces, regular, reserve, or National Guard, into domestic and civil contexts. These are urgent questions the answers to which ought to be known not only to the Commander in Chief, but also to the military commanders and units under his ultimate constitutional command. However, although the question of lawful orders may be cast and debated with a particular president in mind, or through a partisan lens, questions about lawful orders are recurring and arise in daily national security contexts across administrations as well as everyday military life High North News Oct.
The stakes have never been higher for the Arctic, say environmental scholars and regional experts Mark Nevitt, an associate professor at the Syracuse University College of Law, agrees that a Biden administration would handle the issue of climate change more effectively. Much like Obama. Medium Oct. So it was that Trump set the stage for what a lot of people thought was him governing, but in effect has been the most foreboding, nerve-frazzling — and by far the longest — re-election campaign in modern U.
There is always the chance that fraught tempers will dissipate, either by luck or a landslide one way or the other that imposes a forceful quiet on the contest. But, with an animated Trump issuing daily allegations of a sinister plot to unseat him, and supporters of both sides apprehensive of how far the other is prepared to go to win, the fear is that Americans will erupt in the worst political violence since Jim Crow AP Oct.
If any element of the military were to get involved, it would likely be the National Guard under state control. These citizen soldiers could help state or local law enforcement with any major election-related violence. William Banks, professor at Syracuse University College of Law, said that sending uniformed troops to the polls, including the Guard, would be unwise.
It just cuts against the grain of our history, our conditions, our values, our laws," he said And despite being isolated in a nursing home, she wasn't about to let that stop her this year. Your vote counts.
Even though it's one, it counts. They add up," Insalaco said. Mary is used to voting in person. So her daughter, Carol Britt, came here with Mary's mail-in ballot. They talked through the glass during a window visit and discussed how Mary wanted to vote.
Mary's fortunate to have family nearby to assist her. But for many nursing home residents, that's not the case. And that has some advocates worried about the roadblocks facing seniors as we approach Election Day. Kohn: "In many cases, yes.
A resident of a nursing home needs substantial assistance typically to be able to vote and when that assistance isn't forthcoming, as a practical matter, they won't be able to vote" Ames Tribune Oct. At 70 years old, he's at higher risk for COVID, so instead of going to the polls and using an accessible voting machine, he voted absentee during the primaries. His wife filled out the paper ballot for him. But Wirth knows not all blind or otherwise disabled people have a loved one they can trust to help cast their vote.
And, he believes, no Iowan should be forced to surrender their privacy to exercise their constitutional right. Peter Blanck, a law professor at Syracuse University, disagrees. Blanck has written multiple books on the ADA, served on various federal disability commissions and edits the Cambridge Disability Law and Policy Series.
