Methodology: A between participants design was used whereby 324... Read More about A quantitative analysis of attitudes toward pornography use in secure hospitals: sexual, violent and non-offenders.

A fresh view on the hard/soft law divide: implications for international insolvency of enterprise groups (2019)
Journal Article
Mevorach, I. (2019). A fresh view on the hard/soft law divide: implications for international insolvency of enterprise groups. Michigan Journal of International Law, 40(3), 505-530

It is the orthodox belief that treaties and—within the EU—directly applicable regulations represent hard, binding international law, while other international instruments-including model laws-are forms of soft law. In a previous publication 2 I discu... Read More about A fresh view on the hard/soft law divide: implications for international insolvency of enterprise groups.
