Congratulations to the following Law Review Editors who were selected as 2016 recipients of the Rickert Award for Excellence in Academic Achievement:
Tara Feld; and
The Board of Editors is pleased to present Issue 1 of the 2016 Volume of the Illinois Law Review.
In our first Article of the year, Professor Christopher S. Yoo discusses modularity theory and internet regulation.
Next, Professors Schipani, Liu, and Xu examine Chinese reforms to combat “connection-based bribery” in multinational corporations through a series of recent scandals involving the global healthcare giant, GlaxoSmithKline LLC (“GSK”).
Third, Professor Eric Goldman and Angel Reyes III survey the regulation of competitive keyword advertising by lawyers and concludes that such practices are both beneficial for consumers and legitimate under existing U.S. law—except in North Carolina, which adopted an anachronistic and regressive ethics opinion that should be reconsidered.
Fourth, Professor Marc Edelman explores the legal status of “daily fantasy sports” in light of both federal and state gambling laws.
Fifth, Professor Mark C. Weber discusses an extensive research project concerning the intent that must be shown in order to obtain judicial relief under the American disability discrimination law.
Sixth, Edward A. Zelinsky acknowledges the widespread concern that workers are not saving enough for retirement and notes that The Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program Act provides an important first contribution to attempts at remedying the retirement savings problem.
