2.1695 Judgements In Cases: Conceptualism vs. Realism.
Most all rules of law are at least indirectly hinged to the existence of a fair, impartial, and efficient judiciary. Perhaps more than all of them, however, is the tenet that 'all persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law'. This particular rule of law rests almost solely on the discipline of the judiciary and has raised the important question of how, precisely, judges make their decisions. Boundless theories concerning themselves with questions about how judges decide cases and how they should decide cases have filled the minds of legal scholars for centuries. Of these theories, two schools of thought have generally competed for their allegiance. This paper will highlight the essence of these normative theories and attempt to distinguish the most accurate conceptualisation. 10 pgs. 27 f/c. 5b.

4.1765 The Internet and Freedom of Expression.
The computer age has produced renewed debate pertaining to questions of freedom and speech, as opposed to censorship. This discussion ventures to explain how the advent of the so-called Information Age does not really alter the dynamics of a longstanding question, or rather a set of questions, that have been basic to political theory among other of the social sciences. Two articles selected from The Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology, on radically different topics, help to reveal certain approaches to all questions of communications, the media, and the 'post-modern' age, within academic research. These materials are examined en route to sections that focus directly on issues of the internet and freedom of expression. 8 pgs. 11 f/c. 9b.

5.2032 The Social Security Act of 1935.
Saving money for a rainy day. Piggy banks loaded with pennies. Preserving the summer harvest to eat in the long, cold months of winter. There is something innately human about our need for security--to have something on hand just in case. The Social Security Act of 1935 was born out of just such a need, when America was in crisis. Although travelers to the New World had wanted to escape from Europe and its traditions, the Social Security Act is modeled on a system that had its roots in Europe. Why did the Act come into being, what did it entail and how has it changed are all questions this paper will attempt to address. 4.5 pgs. 0 f/c. 6b.
