鈥淢aybe the question isn鈥檛 what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it鈥檚 what happened to everyone else.鈥濃€?lt;i>Politico</i><br /><br /><b><i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Alan Dershowitz, one of America鈥檚 most respected legal scholars, proves鈥攚ith incontrovertible evidence鈥攖hat he is entirely innocent of the sexual misconduct accusations against him, while suggesting a roadmap for how such allegations should truly be handled in a just society. 聽</b><br /><br />Alan Dershowitz has been called 鈥渙ne of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America鈥?by <i>Politico </i>and 鈥渢he nation鈥檚 most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights鈥?by <i>Newsweek</i>. Yet he has come under intense criticism for applying those same principles, and his famed 鈥渟hoe鈥憃n鈥憈he鈥憃ther鈥慺oot test,鈥?to those accused of sexual misconduct.<br /><br /> In <i>Guilt by Accusation</i>, Dershowitz provides an in鈥慸epth analysis of the false accusations against him, alongside a full presentation of the exculpatory evidence that proves his account, including emails from his accuser and an admission of his innocence from her lawyer, David Boies. Additionally, he examines current attitudes toward accusations of sexual misconduct, which are today, in the age of #MeToo, accepted as implicit truth without giving the accused a fair chance to defend themselves and their innocence, and suggests possible pathways back to a society and legal system in which due process is respected above public opinion and the whims of social media mobs.<br /><br /> This book is Alan Dershowitz鈥檚 plea for fairness for both accuser and accused, his principled stand for due process no matter the allegation, and his compelling assertion of his own innocence. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the inside story behind the accusations against him or who cares about the current societal debate over how we should handle accusations of sexual misconduct.<br /><br /> The #MeToo movement has generally been a force for good, but as with many good movements, it is being exploited by some bad people for personal profit. Supporters of the #MeToo movement must not allow false accusers to hurt real victims by hiding behind its virtuous shield, turning it into an exploitive sword against innocent people.

Aristotle (384鈥?22 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."<br /><br />Contents:<br /><br />Part 1: Logic (Organon)<br />Categories, translated by E.

O acordo de leni錨ncia, como instrumento de apura莽茫o de il鉚citos, foi previsto pela Lei 12.846/2013, conhecida tamb茅m como Lei Anticorrup莽茫o (LAC).<br /><br />Esse diploma veio inaugurar, no ordenamento p謾trio, a possibilidade de responsabiliza莽茫o administrativa e civil de pessoas jur鉚dicas pela pr謾tica de atos lesivos contra a Administra莽茫o P煤blica nacional e estrangeira.<br /><br />Com sua promulga莽茫o, o Estado passou a deter meios de sancionar pessoas jur鉚dicas de forma efetiva. <br /><br />Anteriormente, a a莽茫o estatal ficava restrita 脿 puni莽茫o das pessoas naturais que agiam em nome das empresas ou, ainda, 脿 aplica莽茫o de san莽玫es judiciais ou administrativas de fundo contratual ou regulat貿rio. <br /><br />Este livro 茅 fruto da reflex茫o de quem teve a oportunidade de trabalhar diretamente com a mat茅ria e, posteriormente, distanciar-se dos acontecimentos para, livres de qualquer compromisso, avaliar criticamente todos os aspectos inerentes ao acordo de leni錨ncia inclusive aqueles que ajudamos a construir sob o ponto de vista exclusivamente t茅cnico. Assim, foram inevit謾veis as in煤meras refer錨ncias aos diversos doutrinadores e juristas em quem nos baseamos. <br /><br />Por fim, o maior desejo com esta obra 茅 que ela se torne uma contribui莽茫o para todos os agentes p煤blicos, advogados e operadores do direito em geral, que continuar茫o a enfrentar os desafios da implementa莽茫o.

Over the past 20 years, cognitive neuroscience has revolutionized our ability to understand the nature of human thought. Working with the understandings of traditional psychology, the new brain science is transforming many disciplines, from economics to literary theory. These developments are now affecting the law and there is an upsurge of interest in the potential of neuroscience to contribute to our understanding of criminal and civil law and our system of justice in general. The international and interdisciplinary chapters in this volume are written by experts in criminal behaviour, civil law and jurisprudence. They concentrate on the potential of neuroscience to increase our understanding of blame and responsibility in such areas as juveniles and the death penalty, evidence and procedure, neurological enhancement and treatment, property, end-of-life choices, contracting and the effects of words and pictures in law. This collection suggests that legal scholarship and practice will be increasingly enriched by an interdisciplinary study of law, mind and brain and is a valuable addition to the emerging field of neurolaw.
