American justice in the age of innocence : understanding the causes of wrongful convictions and how to prevent them / edited by Sandra Guerra Thompson, Jennifer L. Hopgood, Hillary K. Valderrama. IUniverse, c2011.

KF9660.A44 2011

 

This collection of essays, edited by Professor Sandra Guerra Thompson and former UHLC students Jennifer L. Hopgood and Hillary K. Valderrama, discusses the causes of wrongful conviction in order to find solutions to this growing problem.  In doing so, it examines critical issues such as what American justice in the age of innocence looks like, how to implement procedural mechanisms to ensure the integrity of the judicial system while safeguarding the public, and whether or not the legal system is doing a good enough job uncovering wrongful convictions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

James Harrison. Making the law of the sea : a study in the development of international law. Cambridge University Press, 2011.

KZA1145.H375 2011

 

This book examines how various international organizations have contributed to the development of the law of the sea and what kinds of instruments and law-making techniques have been used. Each chapter considers a different international institution – including the International Maritime Organization and the United Nations – and analyzes its functions and powers.  The author also explores and evaluates the current methods employed by international institutions to coordinate their law-making activities in order to overcome fragmentation of the law-making process.
