Have you ever needed to lease a car, start a small business, or simply rent an apartment?

Deals are a part of everyday life. Understanding how to construct an effective agreement is critical, and yet, many people are unfamiliar with how an effective agreement is structured and what they can do to support a successful deal. This course features numerous examples of situations in which you may need to make a deal and provides practical information and resources to help you construct successful agreements. 

In this course, we have brought three Cornell Law professors and several practicing attorneys together to provide you with a select range of topics that will serve as a foundation for structuring successful contracts. Together, they possess a wealth of knowledge and experience as legal scholars and distinguished law practitioners.

You will begin with a brief overview of the framework within which laws and contracts are enforced.. You will then focus on various kinds of contract provisions that enable and support successful agreements. You will gain greater familiarity with legal terms and concepts involved in deals, making collaboration with legal counsel more effective.

Should we clone humans? What should we think of the coming genetic revolution? How much control should we have over how and when we die? When does medical treatment turn into medical enhancement — and should we care? Is rationing health care good, bad, necessary — or all of the above?

This course will explore fundamental moral issues that arise in medicine, health, and biotechnology. Some are as old as life itself: the vulnerability of illness, the fact of death. Some are new, brought on by a dizzying pace of technology that can unsettle our core ideas about human nature and our place in the world. And nearly all intersect with issues of racial and gender equality, as well as policies affecting the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Designed to introduce students to the range of issues that define bioethics, together with core concepts and skills, this course should be of interest to undergraduates, health care professionals, policy makers, and anyone interested in philosophy or ethics.

Es imposible estudiar hoy los sistemas educativos contemporáneos sin adoptar su perspectiva supranacional. Las agendas educativas nacionales se ven influenciadas por las propuestas de los organismos internacionales (OI). Este curso ofrece una visión crítica de las acciones educativas principales OI y de cómo influyen en las reformas nacionales, para promover reflexión sobre la generación de corrientes educativas globales.

Contestaremos a las siguientes preguntas:

  • ¿Qué es la Educación Supranacional? ¿Existen realmente políticas educativas supranacionales?
  • La agenda educativa de la UE: ¿una formación armonizada para el nuevo ciudadano europeo?
  • Las acciones educativas de la OEI: ¿cooperación o recolonización educativa?
  • Las recomendaciones de la OCDE para la mejora de la educación: ¿se basan verdaderamente en evidencias?
  • La UNESCO y sus estrategias educativas globales: ¿retórica o realidad?

Afortunadamente, cada vez hay más personas sensibles a las especiales privaciones y sufrimientos que afectan a los menores de edad. La explotación sexual de las niñas, la utilización de los niños como soldados, el trabajo infantil, el tráfico internacional de menores… y todo esto sin contar con el hambre, la guerra y las epidemias. Tras dos tímidos precedentes, la comunidad internacional se hizo eco de estas exigencias en la Convención Internacional de Derechos del Niño de 1989 y en la Convención de las Naciones Unidas con mayor número de ratificaciones, aunque con muy limitada eficacia en la realidad.

Nuestro propósito es acercar a todos los profesionales que tratan con la infancia, a los familiares, o a cualquiera que tenga interés y sensibilidad a la respuesta que el Ordenamiento Jurídico puede prestar a esas exigencias específicas. Tomaremos como eje común, sobre el que se articulan los distintos temas, la Convención Internacional de los Derechos del Niño de 1989.

Los cuatro ámbitos sobre los que trabajaremos serán:

  • La sustracción internacional de menores.
  • Menores en desamparo y tutela administrativa.
  • La protección sociolaboral.
  • Situaciones de separación de los progenitores.

¿Cómo abordar los diferentes problemas específicos de la infancia? ¿Qué respuestas puede ofrecer el sistema jurídico? En este curso nos proponemos una aproximación crítica a la realidad y a la regulación jurídica española, europea e internacional de la protección del menor.

If you want to learn the basic physics of solids, fluids, heat and mass transport, this is the course you have been looking for. It combines the power and beauty of mathematics with physical intuition for a comprehensive understanding of continuum physics.

The course begins with an overview of vectors and tensors. It then proceeds through fundamental concepts of motion, balance laws, constitutive relations and thermodynamics. This introductory course addresses mainly solid and fluid mechanics, but approaches them in a unified manner. The follow-up, advanced course extends this treatment to thermomechanics, variational principles and mass transport.

Finally, a word on the treatment of the subject: it is mathematical. We know of no other way to do continuum physics. While the course is rigorous, it is neither abstract nor formal. In every segment connections are made with the physics of the subject. Simple but instructive props such as a deformable plastic bottle, water and food coloring are used throughout the course. Finally, the time-honored continuum potato has been supplanted by an icon of American life: the continuum football.
