Four students in the Class of 2012 that graduated this month had their comments published in the new edition of the McGeorge Law Review (Volume 43, Number 2).
Katerina Deaver, '12, the valedictorian of the Evening Division, wrote "Municipal Economic Boycotts as a Form of Political Opposition: Why Boycotts of Arizona Companies in Response to Arizona SB 1070 Run Afoul of the Dormant Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution."
Ashley Porter, '12, authored "Old Habits Die Hard: Reforming the Learned Intermediary Doctrine in the Era of Direct-to Consumer Advertising." In it, she suggests a change in a once-fundamental tenet of tort law given the evolving health care landscape.
Kirk Wilbur, '12, contributed "Renovating Architectural Copyright: The Case for Protection of Nonhabitable Structures." He credits his architect brother for inspiring the interesting issue that Congress may have overlooked.
Allan Woodworth, '12, wrote "Divorcing Ideas." His comment addresses the extent to which an ex-spouse has property rights in a patent partially or fully developed by the creating spouse during marriage, but completed, filed, or secured after the dissolution of the marriage.
