Volume 13.

The Journal's thirteenth volume is led by Editor-in-Chief Michelle Abdolhosseini and her team.  We invite you to explore the content; then contribute to the conversation. Submit a response, report a development, or pen the next article.



Published Winter 2017.  The first article explores the new federal trade secret act and the opportunity to move away from prior case law placing the burden of proving causation on the plaintiff.  The second article explores federal taxation of thieves and victims, arguing that  each party faces a second prosecution or victimization, respectively.  The third article discusses gaps in the theory of personal goodwill allocation in the sale of assets and offers a legislative fix that would provide certainty in the area.  Finally, the student note discusses the balance between companies that use social-media platforms for marketing and advertising purposes and the FTC’s attempt to address these usages to help protect consumers through its Endorsement Guides.  It provides both best practices for compliance as well as suggestions for safe-harbor provisions the Commission should put in place. What will you contribute? Responses will be published in our online pocket part on a rolling basis.
