Download and read online Cultural Issues in Criminal Defense Fourth Edition in PDF and EPUB Cultural Issues in Criminal Defense discusses approaches to defending cultural issues. The cultural issues are not limited to differences between people of different countries, however. Cultural issues can arise within a country and amongst its people, within a means of collecting and investigating information, and within the way the society perceives the information. All of these factors affect how criminal defense practitioners prepare their cases - from consulting with their clients, to reviewing the investigation by law enforcement, anticipating what information may need to be suppressed, minimized, or emphasized, selecting the jury, attempting to manage how the media reports the information, the direct and cross-examination of witnesses, admission of evidence, and potentially appeal and post-conviction. Special features of this new edition include chapters on: --“Interviewing Immigrant Clients and Special Immigrant Relief for Crime Victims” --“Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions” --“Digital Defense: Meeting the Challenges that the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act Poses” --“A General Discussion of Some Cultural Issues from State of Florida v George Zimmerman.” This book is a helpful tool for any practitioner whether they have a criminal defendant in a case abroad, a case involving an immigrant defendant in the U.S., or a criminal case within the U.S. with a unique cultural issue.

The first book-length study of the topic, The Cultural Defense provides a comprehensive overview of the debate surrounding the admissibility of cultural evidence in the courtroom. Documenting an extraordinary range of cases in which individuals have attempted to invoke a cultural defense, this book provides an in-depth look at the complexities of invoking cultural arguments in the diverse bodies of law under which the cases fall. Cases considered include homicide and rape prosecutions, child abuse cases, drug use cases, the treatment of animals, and custody battles. Disputing current practices, Renteln contends that the cultural defense should, in both criminal and civil matters, be given formal recognition.

Download and read online International Law and Armed Conflict in PDF and EPUB While a more traditional approach to international law and armed conflict focuses on the use of force and international humanitarian law, this book incorporates other international legal regimes such as human rights law, international private law, international criminal law, environmental law, as well as regional and national legal regimes. In doing so, a broader picture emerges and reveals the current challenges faced by lawyers in regulating armed conflicts. This in turn highlights the complexities, intricacies, and the interrelationship of the different regimes that may be rendered applicable to armed conflicts. Also, in taking a more inclusive approach, this book provides a new perspective on both existing and emerging themes in this field. The topics covered in this book include privatisation of warfare, protection of the environment, use of natural resources to support armed conflicts, involvement of children in armed conflicts, the relationship between peace, security and justice.

Download and read online Cultural diversity and the law in PDF and EPUB In the twenty-first century nearly all countries face the reality of 'cultural diversity', a concept that refers to the presence, and, increasingly, the affirmation of diverse cultures within the borders of particular political communities. This process appears to be in full swing. In Europe, for instance, the migratory waves of the post-war period gave rise to new sociological and cultural circumstances within the various states. The multiplicity of cultures and the spread of various religions from other parts of the world cause ongoing turmoil. Outside of Europe, diversity is often connected with colonial history. In the face of this widespread phenomenon, different states adopt different positions. Either cultural differences lead to problems that are difficuit to manage, or the differences are more or less integrated or given a formal structure. Between these two potes there are many nuances, ranging from a rejection of differences to their toleration and finally their recognition. The essays in this collection show the various ways in which the law responds to this situation. They make clear that liberalism's official blindness to differences, and its tendency to subordinate them to an abstract notion of equality, has become increasingly problematic. If the state does not respond in an appropriate way to the daim for valorisation of diversity, it risks leaving the question of identities to strategic manipulation, thereby leading to a process of cultural and identity fragmentation. The ambition common to the authors - over 30 - who contributed to this volume is to take the reflection further, by providing a manifold illumination of the various situations examined from ail over the world. They share the conviction that greater attention to the reality of legal pluralism will improve the lives of many in quite practical ways. It is also their view that, as a normative matter, justice requires that jurists take greater care in evaluating the worldviews and value systems of the groups that reside within a state.
