Cultural Issues in Criminal Defense

Juris, 2007

KF9646.R35 2007

 

Cultural Issues in Criminal Defense is designed for the criminal defense lawyer representing people from other cultures, nationalities or ethnic backgrounds. Lawyers defending these individuals face a host of characteristic concerns that include cultural barriers to communication, the need for qualified interpreters, unique Fourth and Fifth Amendment issues, cultural defenses, issues involving Native Americans, the immigration consequences of a conviction, and distinctive sentencing issues. The second edition now includes chapters on consular assistance issues, gathering evidence abroad, language proficiency concerns and international prisoner transfers.

 

Dario Milo

Defamation and Freedom of Speech

Oxford University Press, 2008

K930.M55 2008

 

Defamation and Freedom of Speech argues that fundamental rules and procedures of defamation law need to be reformed to take into account the dual importance of public interest speech, and the right to human dignity. The author suggests that remedies available in defamation cases should be reformed to reflect the importance of dignity to the claimant, and the free speech interest of the public in receiving accurate information on matters of public interest.
