(1) Those who drafted the Convention have taken pains to confer rights differentially according to a classification process.(2) This may confer an added benefit on women, whose families may be reluctant to let them study overseas.(3) The ceremony in which SFU will confer the honorary degrees, will be held on the last day of the Dalai Lama's visit.(4) They also fear it can easily be coached and thus confer benefits to wealthy applicants.(5) As a custom, it became regulated by laws that confer rights and impose duties on those who practice it.(6) The first is that the Act is a scheme of social welfare, intended to confer benefits at the public expense on grounds of public policy.(7) One of the things I found is that just because you pass a law and confer a benefit doesn't mean people know it exists.(8) It does not confer a right of property as such nor does it guarantee the content of any rights in property.(9) moves were made to confer an honorary degree on her(10) It is the only means of establishing, under law, that the university has a historic power to confer degrees.(11) In principle, it is patent rights that confer property rights in innovations.(12) The Law Council does not accept such arguments and is vigorously opposed to the conferral on the prosecutorial authorities of such sweeping and arbitrary powers in the characterisation of offences and laying of charges.(13) There on the road, the woman is conferring with Henry.(14) Statehood, even if qualified as provisional or interim, confers a degree of sovereignty.(15) He in turn confers with Geronimo, the local stage tech and they work something out with sidelights.(16) But there are those who are hell-bent upon ensuring he is given perhaps even more credit than he deserves and I have a feeling the conferment of this honour won't be the last.
