LS308 Law and Society Unit 3 assignment cases involving Chinese citizens violating the lawful rights and interests of foreigners. According to the Law on Civil Procedures, civil cases heard by intermediate courts are major foreign- related cases; cases of major implications within their jurisdictions; and cases that intermediate courts are ordered to hear by the Supreme Court. In the United States, we have a common law system similar to Great Britain, however the crime in the scenario has taken place on the Navajo Nation reservation, which has its' own laws and court system; The Criminal Code Title 17 of the Navajo Nation Tribal Code. Theft and Related Offenses §330-336 along with penalties such as fines, jail time and Nalyeeh ” which is a Navajo legal term, which refers to reparation or restitution , but it has the wider meaning of compensation to a victim so there will be “no hard feelings.” It is also a discussion of plans to build or restore relationships (“ restorative justice ”) which is particularly appropriate for the Navajo Peacemaker Court. These laws change the very way that one is punished. China they can imprison you for life if you are caught stealing something of great value. In Saudi Arabia they might amputate some of your body parts. In the U.S., Great Britain, and France they will at least try you in a court. The fact that my friend is female would not hold any jurisdiction in any particular case. The fact is my friend wanted to steal something very valuable from each location. It all depends on the monetary value for each item stolen as well as the methods used. If it is a felony in certain countries she might receive life in prison or lose a hand or two!.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
