Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of legal, socio-legal, and extra legal factors on sentencing of a sample of drug offenders disposed by ten district courts in South Korean six large cities during 1997 - 2001. While there are similarities and differences in criminal convictions and imprisonment for violation of drug laws between the United States and South Korea, this study does not compare American and Korean offenders. Rather it investigates to what extent several variables are correlated with sentencing of drug offenses in Korea. The sample (N=2,456) was drawn from the survey on the official records of investigations and trials which were filed by the police, prosecutor and courts using systematic sampling. The implications of the current research on policy are discussed.

Abstract: Past research by legal scholars and practitioners, including the American Bar Association, has found lower income people must deal with a broad array of laws and legal processes that directly impact their daily lives and, for more than those with greater means, often determined their very ability to survive. Researchers at the Poverty Research Institute of Legal Services of New Jersey have conducted an independent study of the legal needs of lower income New Jersey residents. The study addresses the overarching question of whether lower income New Jersey residents are receiving the legal assistance they need to help them face legal problems and concludes that a significant gap in services exists.

The New Jersey Legal Problems, Legal Needs study consists of analysis from 1013 interviews with lower income residents. Survey methodology incorporated a statewide random digit dial sampling strategy, the next birthday method for within household randomized selection, and participant income screening. Survey field period lasted 4 months and attempts were made to screen for eligibility at least 12 times per telephone number. When AAPOR’s RR3 formula is utilized, the survey has a response rate of 50 percent-.

Key findings include that one third of New Jersey’s English or Spanish speaking residents with incomes at or below 200 percent- of the federal poverty level experience the occurrence of at least one new civil legal problem each year. The most frequently occurring civil legal problems are related to housing and neighborhood issues. Less than one third (31 percent-) of lower income adults who experience new civil legal problems will obtain legal assistance during just one year. Those who do not seek to resolve legal problems rate outcome satisfaction lower than those who seek legal assistance. Only 8 percent- of lower income residents are aware of lawyer referral services and only 26 percent- are aware of agencies in their counties that provide free legal services in civil matters to individuals otherwise unable to afford legal assistance.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explicate the politics of legal pluralism, the challenges to state legal ideology, and to ponder whether we should have one unified narrative of legality. The paper offers an epistemological, theoretical, and empirical analysis that offers an understanding of why legal pluralism exists, why and how state's power constructs it and controls it and whether we should have "one" narrative of legality. The paper will conclude with theoretical conclusions about politics of legal pluralism and will also explore ramifications for public policy.

"Legal Equality and Legal Consciousness: Ordinary Citizens and Legal Professionals About Anti-Discrimination Law in the Netherlands" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, TBA, Berlin, Germany, Jul 24, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-02-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p177164_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines people’s knowledge, perception and attitudes towards anti-discrimination law in the Netherlands. It draws on a recent evaluation study of this legislation which included a large survey, several case-studies and extensive open-ended interviews. The analysis of these empirical data is based on a critical discussion of the legal consciousness literature. Unlike most previous studies, this study is not limited to the knowledge and opinions of ‘ordinary citizens’, but includes the views of several legal professionals as well. Moreover, in this study special attention will be paid to the social and personal context of people’s perceptions of anti-discrimination law.
