  • Has the Alien Tort Statute Made a Difference': A Historical,
           Empirical, and Normative Assessment

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: The Alien Tort Statute (ATS), which allows aliens to file civil suit in U.S. courts for violations of the law of nations, has been considered by many to be one of the most important legal tools for human rights litigation in the United States and perhaps even the world. The effectiveness of this tool, however,...

  • Resurrecting Arbitrariness

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: What allows judges to sentence a child to die in prison' For years, they did so without constitutional restriction. That all changed in 2012’s Miller v. Alabama, which banned mandatory sentences of life without parole for children convicted of homicide crimes. Miller held that this extreme sentence was constitutional only for the worst offenders—the “permanently...

  • Antidiscrimination and Tax Exemption

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: “The Supreme Court held, in Bob Jones University v. United States, that violations of fundamental public policy—including race discrimination in education—disqualify an entity for tax exemption. The holding of the case was broad, and its results cohered with the ideals of progressive society: the government ought not to subsidize discrimination, particularly of marginalized groups. But...

  • A Response-Dependent Perspective on the Theory of Insanity

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: “This Note has three parts. The first introduces the idea of response-dependent responsibility in more detail. The second part argues that the traditional tests for insanity assume the view of responsibility the response-dependent account sought to correct and that the failure of these tests to provide satisfactory results follows from that assumption. The third part...

  • “Shake the Hand that Feeds You”: Creating Custom Food Safety
           Certifications for Farm to School Programs

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: The United States is home to approximately 14.4 million obese children. Federal government encouragement that schools “purchase unprocessed agricultural products, both locally grown and locally raised, to the maximum extent practicable and appropriate” with federal funds has fallen upon the receptive ears of administrators, whose schools often feed America’s youth two out of three meals...

  • Scientific Evidence: Grand Theories and Basic Methods

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: California law requires judges to admit expert scientific testimony without resolving scientific controversies, which are left to juries. But case law does not provide a definition of “science” verses inadmissible pseudoscience. And typically juries are asked to resolve ‘scientific’ controversies based on studies never provided to them. The Essay discusses three common definitions of science,...

  • Voter Data, Democratic Inequality, and the Risk of Political Violence

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: Campaigns’ increasing reliance on data-driven canvassing has coincided with a disquieting trend in American politics: a stark gap in voter turnout between the rich and poor. Turnout among the poor has remained low in modern elections despite legal changes that have dramatically decreased the cost of voting. In this Article, we present evidence that the...

  • Free Exercise Partisanship

    • Authors: Arshi Baig
      Abstract: This Article presents new data demonstrating that, in contrast to earlier periods, recent judicial decision-making in free exercise cases tracks political affiliation to a significant degree. The trend toward increased free exercise partisanship is starkly manifested by free exercise cases borne out of the COVID-19 pandemic: a survey of federal court decisions pertaining to free...
