In other words, in some situations, I am a person with impairment, and in other
situations, I am a disabled person, according to Thomas' definitions. This seems
impractical and confusing. 3 Many disabled people, much of the time, actually
experience positive responses from non-disabled people. For example, they may
receive support from non-disabled relatives, friends, or strangers who assist them
in daily activities. Or they may experience positive benefit from statutory or
voluntary ...

Defining what is right and wrong and selecting appropriate remedies often reflect
shared values in a world of justice of exchange. Sometimes, however, policy
evaluations have outcomes diverging from state to state. Differences of that kind
surface in environmental tort law. The typical scenario is: harm is caused in one
state but occurs in another. Air pollution, water pollution, noise caused by an
airport close to a border and radiation hazards emanating from a nuclear plant,
which does ...

1.5.1 Conditional Rights Many people think of rights as being unconditional.
Everyone has an unconditional right to read what he wishes. No constitutional
right is likely to be truly unconditional, however. Limits to any right will exist at the
boundaries of the definition of a particular action, or when different rights clash.
For example, when delineating a right to practice the religion of one's choice, the
constitution framers are unlikely to want to protect a religious sect's freedom to
engage in ...

This objection is misconceived, however: for without a conceptual definition of the
term 'public law', it would be difficult to categorize the cases in any way which
would allow appropriate differences or similarities usefully to be highlighted.
Adopting a conceptual definition does mean, however, that we need to define an '
interest' more fully. On a broad view, an 'interest' simply means an interest in
something of value – in which case we might categorize freedom of expression
as an ...

Thus wrongs 'for the most part convey to us an idea merely negative, as being
nothing else but a privation of right'. Rights had to be defined before wrongs: 'the
contemplation of what is jus being necessarily prior to what may be termed injuria
, and the definition of fas precedent to that of nefas:140 Elsewhere in the
Commentaries, wrongs are given priority, with the idea that the common law
provides a writ or finds a remedy for every injury which ought to be redressed.141

. “At the opening of these commentaries municipal law is defined to be, ' a rule of
civil conduct, prescribed by the supreme power in a state.” The primary objects of
this law are the establishment of rights, and the prohibition of wrongs. And this
occasioned the distribution of these collections into two general heads; under the
former of which we have already considered the rights that were defined and ...

The question of defining and assessing “harm” thus becomes a key issue. Earlier
chapters have given much attention to benefits of work to children, many of them
often overlooked, to counteract widespread assumptions about the harmful
nature of work. We have also considered how work relates to poverty and can
sometimes impede education. In this chapter, we explore the various kinds of
more direct harm, or the risk of such harm, that comes with working, and that
needs to be ...
