After thoroughly reviewing and reading submissions from college students from different institutions around the country, the editorial board has decided to publish three outstanding collegiate articles and a segment by the Director of Communications and Public Policy for the ACLU of Ohio, Mike Brickner.
This issue begins with Chris Green’s “The Hit: Why the NFL’s Age Requirement is Anticompetitive.” His paper analyzes the NFL’s age requirement and why it is anticompetitive, barring able individuals from the workforce due to age.
In “Lawful Advertising: Corporate Advertising and its Legal Obligation to the Truth” Andrew Koch examines the legal obligations businesses have in telling the truth in advertising, citing federal guidelines and case law.
In her paper, “Can Religiously Affiliated Businesses be Required to Carry Healthcare Packages that Include Contraceptives,” Annie Szendrey analyzes whether businesses must follow all requirements of the Affordable Care Act, even if some of those requirements potentially infringes on first amendment rights to religion.
Mike Brickner’s segment on Ohio’s capital punishment law is the last article of the issue, which motions for a change in the death penalty system.
The first issue of the Xavier Undergraduate Law Review has been a rewarding and enriching experience for the editorial board and we hope you enjoy reading the selected articles.
