Andrew D. Appleby LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD: A SEPARATE TAX REGIME FOR INTERNATIONAL ATHLETES 36 Brooklyn Journal of International Law 605 (2011) Taxation of international athletes is a failure. The lack of a single, consistent regime results in substantial enforcement difficulties for tax administrators as well as a massive compliance burden and potential double taxation for athletes. International athletes' unique characteristics necessitate a separate tax regime. Athletes are extremely... 2011

Broussard REACTION TO: WEALTH, POVERTY, AND THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE 3 Georgetown Journal of Law & Modern Critical Race Perspectives 199 (Fall, 2011) In his Article titled, The Fourteenth Amendment Isn't Broke: Why Wealth Should Be a Suspect Classification under the Equal Protection Clause, Shayan H. Modarres strikes at the heart of the myth of a so-called post-racial America by effectively arguing that poverty has become a proxy for race; thereby creating a de facto economic racism that... 2011
Paige Taylor REACTION TO: WEALTH, POVERTY, AND THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE 3 Georgetown Journal of Law & Modern Critical Race Perspectives 201 (Fall, 2011) While Modarres makes clear that the courts have failed to recognize wealth as a suspect classification, he has based his thesis on the convergence of race and poverty, which ha[s] made it a virtual impossibility to consider poverty in a race-neutral manner. Therefore, he argues mostly about racial dynamics rather than proving a factual basis to... 2011
Sarah Pei Woo REGULATORY BANKRUPTCY: HOW BANK REGULATION CAUSES FIRE SALES 99 Georgetown Law Journal 1615 (August, 2011) Bankruptcy policy has long been founded upon the assumption that creditors seek to maximize the value of their assets. The radical changes that have swept the banking sector over the last two decades, however, have rendered this assumption unreliable. Banks, which are responsible for the majority of the outstanding credit in the United States, are... 2011

Angela Littwin THE AFFORDABILITY PARADOX: HOW CONSUMER BANKRUPTCY'S GREATEST WEAKNESS MAY ACCOUNT FOR ITS SURPRISING SUCCESS 52 William and Mary Law Review 1933 (May, 2011) When the 2005 Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) made consumer bankruptcy more expensive for all debtors, it inadvertently reignited a debate about how to make the system more affordable for its neediest beneficiaries. Even before BAPCPA, consumer bankruptcy suffered from the irony that those who needed it the most... 2011

A prospective employee interviews for and is offered a job by a private employer, subject to a satisfactory drug test and background check.
