Three McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific students recently published comments in Volume 47, Issue 2 of the University of the Pacific Law Review. Issue 2 is available online, and annual subscriptions are available.
Teal O. Miller, '16, wrote "Transgenic Transboundary Pollution: Liability when Genetically Modified Pollen Crosses National Borders." Mira V. Patel, '16, wrote "Corporate Tax Inversions: Battling the "Corporate Benedict Arnolds" by Means of Analogizing to an Individual Taxing Regime." Nisha K. De Lany, '16, wrote "From a Developing Country's Perspective: Is Net Neutrality a Non-Issue for South Africa?" An Amicus Brief to the Supreme Court of the United States last year cited a Volume 46, Issue 4 McGeorge Law Review comment by Devina Douglas, '15.
Nine of the articles in Issue 2 are based on presentations made at the March 6, 2015 Annual Global Center Symposium. The Symposium topic was "The Promise and Perils of an International Law of Property," and was inspired by McGeorge Distinguished Professor John Sprankling's book, The International Law of Property (Oxford 2014). The last article is "2015 Brandeis Institute of International Judges Report: International Courts, Local Actors."
The McGeorge Law Review and The Global Business & Development Law Journal merged into a new law review entitled The University of the Pacific Law Review starting in the 2015-2016 academic year. The University of the Pacific Law Review is an entirely student-run journal that publishes four issues annually. Two of these issues include articles written by law review staff. Membership on the law review includes not only the opportunity for publication in the journal but also provides students with intensive, high-quality editing and research instruction. Learn more >
