This report is a summary of the first meeting of the Science, Technology,
and Law Panel of The National Academies, convened on March 16-17,
2000, at the Beckman Center in Irvine, California. The Science, Technology,
and Law (STL) Program was established to monitor and explore
the growing number of areas in which the processes of legal decision
making utilize or impinge on the work of scientists and engineers. One of
the major activities of the STL Program is convening a distinguished panel
of individuals drawn from both the science and engineering and legal

When I finished my first degree in law back in 1993, I was very proud and a little bit
exhausted from the long learning period. So I decided to relax by playing a new game by
NovaLogic called Comanche.
I started the night of January 11th and finished about three days later with only a few hours
of sleep. With the new experience in my head, I decided to start computer game programming.
My goal was to program a terrain engine like Comanche. My then-girlfriend—now
wife—looked a little bit confused when a young, recently-graduated lawyer told her that
was going to be a game programmer....
Billions of dollars have been wasted on marketing programs that couldn’t possibly work, no matter how
clever or brilliant. Or how big the budgets.
Many managers assume that a well-designed, well-executed, well-financed marketing program will
work. It’s not necessarily so. And you don’t have to look further than IBM, General Motors, and Sears,Roebuck to find examples
States are increasingly challenging the logic of simply assimilating
refugees to their own citizens. Questions are now raised about whether
refugees should be allowed to enjoy freedom of movement, to work, to
access public welfare programs, or to be reunited with family members.
Doubts have been expressed about the propriety of exempting refugees
from visa and other immigration rules, and even about whether there is
really a duty to admit refugees at all.

Moore's Law is the observation that the amount you can do on a single chip doubles every two years. But Moore's Law is taking a detour.

The tools and techniques used at Sears, Roebuck might have been right, sometimes even spectacular. And the managers who ran the GM programs might have been the best and the brightest. Certainly the best and the brightest people traditionally have been attracted to the biggest and the best companies, like GM and IBM. But the programs themselves were based on assumptions that were flawed.
John Kenneth Galbraith, when asked what he believed was America’s perception of the country’s giant corporations, said that we feared corporate power.
The Law of Healthcare Administration is intended to give readers some
appreciation of the role law plays in the everyday operation of our healthcare
system. The book was first published in 1988, when the late Arthur
F. Southwick was a guiding light in our field. It was the first to capture the
essence of health law from management’s perspective. I have been privileged
to carry Professor Southwick’s legacy through the third and fourth
editions, and now it is time for the fifth.

Older individuals encounter a panoply of legal vicissitudes, as well as
other types of challenges, in their daily lives. For older persons needing
medical services, it frequently is impossible to separate the clinical aspects
of care from the legal (as well as ethical, financial, and public policy) elements.
Medical care of the elderly is intimately affected and extensively
governed by the broad array of legal considerations that are applicable to
the delivery of health services in general, and many of these considerations
often are exacerbated in the care of older persons.
International law practitioners and scholars frequently encounter difficulties in “finding” the
factual elements and normative components that serve as the building blocks for the sources of
international law.While treaties as an authoritative source of international law present the fewest
problems, the same cannot be said of the other two sources. To determine the existence of a
customary rule of international law, for example, one must locate relevant state practice, and test
that practice against standards of uniformity, consistency, and the requirement of opinio juris.

This project has allowed me the luxury of following my curiosity to its natural
end, and it is a pleasure to thank those who have made it possible. Graduate
fellowships from the Fulbright-Hays program, the American Association of
University Women, and Northwestern University helped to underwrite the
early stages of my research and writing. The American Council of Learned
Societies, the Horace H. Rackham fund of the University of Michigan, and
Duke University provided later sustenance, computer support and time away
from teaching duties....
Governmentality identifies that regulation is constituted by micro
instances of rule rather than by a centralised power or agent. Governmentality
challenges the assumption that regulation is effected by
centralised government over a constituency, arguing instead that
regulatory practices exist everywhere, in the particular, such that
macro regimes of rule can be deconstructed into their constitutive
rationales and programs (Foucault, 1982, 1991; Dean, 1999).
