Three recent (May 2009) graduates wrote comments that were published in Volume 40, Issue 3 of the McGeorge Law Review.

Derek Haynes contributed “Search Protocols: Establishing the Protections Mandated by the Fourth Amendment Against Unreasonable Searches and Seizures in the World of Electronic Evidence.” He argues that the Advisory Committee on the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure should take the lead and propose an amendment to the federal rules that mandate search protocols in cases involving electronic evidence.

Joshua Hendrickson contributed “Take the Home but Spare the Equity: A Proposal to Bifurcate the Foreclosure Process.” He targets the unfairness and inefficiency of the standard foreclosure process and says that a major change would benefit all parties.

Joanna Varner wrote “ Battle of the Lists: The Use of Approved Versus Restricted Religious Books Lists in Prisons.” Her analysis concludes that the less pervasive use of restricted lists best governs the prison chapel library reading materials.
