For quite some time now the world has been moving toward being more friendly to the environment. This friendliness to the environment has impacted every industry in existence. The railway industry was impacted and companies such as National Steel Car change the ways they did business to promote environmental health. It has also impacted the airline industry and companies such as the United Technologies Corporation change the inner workings of their company to produce fewer emissions. However, one of the industries that was impacted the most by this trend is the architecture industry.

The American Institute of Architects takes the idea of global warming and climate change extremely seriously. Their chief executive officer, Robert Ivy, believes that it is the architect that is the front-line warrior when it comes to sustaining the environment. This is because the architect creates buildings that directly impact nature.

Robert Ivy was promoted from his position of vice President to the role of chief executive officer seven years ago. Sense then, he has led the American Institute of Architects to completely restructuring the inner organization so that they can begin promoting public health and environmental sustainability. They also spent time creating ways to spread this knowledge throughout the entire profession so that architects can begin implementing things immediately.

Once the American Institute of Architects was ready, Robert Ivy announced to the world the decade of design initiative. This initiative is made public at the Clinton foundation dinner of 2017. There, Robert Ivy presented to the 1000 influencers and game changers what his organization planned to do. He discussed how the American Institute of Architects wanted to research and developed techniques that architects could use to help buildings be more sustainable over time and have a minimal influence on the environment. He discussed how they wanted to create ways that would allow buildings to stop their impact on the environment and leave a green footprint on this world.

All 1000 people present immediately stood he gave Robert Ivy a standing ovation. They welcomed his plan to promote public health and sustain the climate by helping buildings built environmental resilience. On that occasion, he received several invitations to be the keynote speaker for various corporations. They hope that by combining their strength and skills together that architects may learn how to build not only elegant buildings but ones that interweave with the unique needs of Earth’s nature.

This tweet was published in December 2017 and involved the topic of the termination of Robert Mueller, the White House special counsel. In the tweet Eric Holder refers to the potential firing of Robert Mueller. Eric Holder made the suggestion that if anything happened there would be peaceful demonstrations by the masses. Sujit Choudhry’s further analysis suggested Eric Holder based the tweet on the concept of the crossing of the symbolic “redline” and leaves it up to the determination of the people, to make the decision on whether the redline and boundary had been exceeded. This, Professor Sujit Choudhry referred to as the idea of constitutional self enforcement. He further expanded on the concept of constitutions being expectations for governing of both the citizens as well as the government officials.

The company opened a new facility in Chicago and it then expanded to other places such as Spain, Australia, Brazil and Taiwan in the 1980s.

It is common to hear that a junior employee has been fired but an executive fired for misconduct is a rare case. In his recent blog, Bruno Fagali explains why Ford CEO Raj Nair was fired. Raj has been working with the multinational since 1987. He began his career as an engineer then Technical Director then Global Director of Product Development and then finally promoted as CEO. An internal investigation was carried out by the compliance department at Ford following an anonymous complaint. The company did not give much information about the anonymous letter.

It is unclear as to what kind of misconduct (s) was carried out by the former CEO of Ford. However, Fagali observes that in the 90s the same company entered into a $22 million agreement with the EEOC over management prosecution over misconduct such as sexual harassment. In 2017 the company also parted with $10,125 million over the same issues. The newly appointed CEO Tim Hackett issued a statement assuring the community that the company will not tolerate any misconduct in the future. Fagali explains that the above case illustrates that all the employees in an organization must comply with the set standards whether junior or executive. A company that experiences cases of misconduct in regards to prejudice (sexual, racial, gender) and harassment should undertake training to help its employees understand the consequences of such actions. The training should be designed to prevent and monitor noncompliance within the company. In Brazil, a proof is required that the company carried a thorough internal investigation of the matter. In the United States, however, a proof is not a necessity.

Bruno Fagali is an expert lawyer in administrative law, compliance, ethics, urban law and regulatory law. He writes a blog post on his website about his interpretation of different cases in the world. He started his career back in 2006 and had worked with different law firms in Brazil. Currency he is the Corporate Integrity Manager at Nova/BS which is among the top advertising agency in Brazil. At NOVA/SB he helped come up with a new policy that recognizes both employees and members. He also has a practice named Fagali Law Firm that provides legal counsel and represent clients in courts. Fagali is known as a corporate lawyer helping drive transparency and integrity in Brazil by campaigning against acts such as corruption. Corruption is a significant concern among the public in Brazil, and its government is investing efforts in giving back faith to its citizens.

Professor Sujit Choudhry is a prominent educator, expert in law and now the director of Centre for Constitutional Transitions. Appointed as the serving dean of the California University in Berkeley, Mr. Choudhry is the first Indian to earn a prestigious title as a dean in the U.S. top law institution.

Background Story

All too often, Choudhry has worked as a clerk for the Canadian Supreme Court and an advisor to many countries. Most fundamentally, he has carved out a name for himself in the industry of law. Having attended the Harvard University of Law School and later graduated with honors, it is clear that Choudhry has strong academic credentials that played a pivotal role in tossing him to the competitive world of comparative law and constitutional work (blogs.law.nyu.edu). Therefore, by studying law and analyzing sensitive situations that call for immediate action, Sujit Choudhry has been helpful in fostering peace in communities that experience unrest.

His Experiences

As an advisor to many countries, Sujit Choudhry has crafted the art of offering relevant constitutional advice to various people. That is why in his recent article on a tweet by Eric Holder, Sujit Choudhry provides indispensable remarks regarding the former attorney general. The backstory of these remarks portrays Eric Holder tweeting that impeaching Robert Mueller would be a red line. He goes on to state that should anything happen to Robert Mueller, peaceful riots would be allowed as Americans will have been deprived off their justice.

Explaining Holder’s Tweet

According to Mr. Choudhry’s internalization of the tweet, the red line is built on Holder’s thoughts of self- constitution. And because constitutions are strategically placed to govern the expectations of citizens and officials at large, there is some shred of fact in his reasoning. However, the violations of the constitutional rights do not guarantee such labels by the court. Therefore, it is worrying, according to Sujit Choudhry, that Eric Holder, even with his expertise in law enforcement, fails to identify a legal challenge to Robert Mueller’s authority. He goes on to explain that Mueller’s case rests in the hands of Americans as they are obliged to seek justice for officials.

Overview

Mr. Sujit Choudhry is a talented lawyer in practice. He believes that constitutions can be used to deliver justice to communities. That is why he applies his expertise to decipher challenging situations regarding the field of law.
