This edition of Cession for Students is an update with some new cases added and a more user-friendly format. The book is a useful tool for both students and practitioners in mastering this complicated subject.
Cession for Students is divided into three sections: the substantive law of cession, case study questions and a short introduction to the drafting of cession documents. The first section is for examination purposes, the second to test insight and practical knowledge and the third serves as a practical aid.
"Principles of Delict" places the law of delict in a contemporary setting, with emphasis falling on recent decisions of the courts and possible future directions. It should provide the student of the law of delict with a concise, yet critical, perspective on this branch of law. A number of features of the work should prove useful to students of current legal issues and practitioners needing a succinct survey of the general principles of delict and the judgments in leading cases.
Now part of the Juta’s Property Law Library series, the third edition provides a comprehensive discussion of the core aspects of South African planning law.
The second edition, Planning Law (2012), reflected more of the new constitutional dispensation that brought with it not only a focus on values and equity, but also the development of an entirely new vision and structure for planning in the three spheres of government. It introduced some basic principles, addressed the apartheid roots of planning law in South Africa and gave detailed attention to the core of planning law.
Since the publication of the second edition, planning law has received increasing attention and the constitutional, legislative and jurisprudential framework has undergone significant contextual development. Evolving constitutional insights are providing a better perspective on the content of planning law and the impact of planning frameworks and decisions on government, in its three spheres, as well as owners and neighbours.
The Constitutional Court has, to a large extent, clarified the different planning competences and how these are allocated to each of the spheres of government. The enactment of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act 16 of 2013 (SPLUMA) has paved the way for the discipline to develop considerably and to be more integrated. The resultant effect on planning law has been immense and has necessitated this new edition that has been reworked and updated in its entirety. Since planning law is multi-faceted, the book also deals with related administrative, environmental, local government and informal settlement issues. All the relevant legal principles and legislative provisions are amplified by discussions of applicable court decisions.
Written to support students through the challenges of the GDL or CPE course, Introduction to Law for the CPE introduces students to the landmark cases, the related key legal principles and puts each legal rule in context within each of the seven qualifying foundation subjects.
EC Law in the UK reviews the possibilities for legal redress in the UK courts when rules of Community law are violated. The analysis focuses as far as possible on case law decided by the UK courts and adopts the perspective of the individual litigant. The book aims to familiarise the reader with the Community legal system and to illustrate its all-pervasive influence on UK national law and aims to change the common perception that EC law is `foreign law' or an optional subject. The author shows that Community law is an integral part of UK law that can be applied in virtually any area of legal practice. This book will be essential reading on LLB, CPE and postgraduate courses in EC law, and a useful adjunct to constitutional and English legal system courses where the EC dimension is becoming increasingly important. Practitioners will also find the coverage of the book relevant to their needs.
European law has come to influence almost all fields of national law, including administrative, constitutional, contract, criminal and even tort law. But what is the European Union? How does it work? How does it produce European law? This book uses a clear framework to guide readers through all core constitutional and substantive topics of EU law. New content includes: a Brexit chapter covering the negotiation process and the possible future relationships between the United Kingdom and the European Union, new EU private international law and EU criminal law sections, and extended coverage of delegated legislation, human rights and free movement of persons. All chapters reflect judicial and legislative practice up to 31st December 2017. Key features include case extracts accompanied by extensive critical discussion of the theoretical and practical aspects of EU law, over 100 figures and tables clarifying complex topics and a companion website with full 'Lisbonised' versions of cited cases and many extra materials.
The introduction of capital gains tax has completely changed the fiscal landscape in South Africa. In this new era, no contract (or variation of a contract), no business deal, no corporate reconstruction, no sale of investments, no waiver or reduction of a debt and no formation or variation of a trust should be entered into without careful appraisal of the capital gains tax consequences. This work is designed to meet the needs of attorneys, accountants, tax consultants, investment advisers, and other professionals. The manual explains, in depth and in detail, the conceptual basis and the practical implications of capital gains tax. The work includes a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the provisions of the Eighth Schedule and the Corporate Rules, including many practical illustrations of capital gains tax calculations. The second edition incorporates legislative amendments up to and including the Second Revenue Laws Amendment Act 34 of 2004. The commentary on the Eighth Schedule has been considerably expanded with the addition of many new practical examples. A detailed commentary on the Corporate Rules has been added, plus new chapters on foreign currency gains and losses, anti-avoidance provisions, and administrative requirements.
There is already ample evidence that the new constitutional order has triggered an unprecedented flowering of South African jurisprudential debate. The aim of this book is to provide a sensitive and intuitive understanding of these debates. In addition, lecturers will be given an innovative approach to what has been previously regarded as a difficult, boring and irrelevant subject.
This text deals with the basic concepts of the law and explains the operation of the law and the administration of justice. It features practical exercises at the end of each chapter to help the student develop the ability to analyse information and apply knowledge. Another feature is the appendixes in which step-by-step explanations are given of how to research and apply primary sources of the law such as statutes and decisions in court.
An introductory guide for understanding European Law, this title provides a clear and accurate explanation of the institutions and the substantive law, presented in a systematic and logical order for learning and revision.
An interdisciplinary account of language and the law, this text looks at court interpreting and the nature of verbal interaction in the courtroom. Linguistic problems experienced due to personality and language factors, and the intimidating nature of legal discourse are also discussed.
The first volume, a legal humour edited by Professor Kahn, Law, Life and Laughter published in 1991 was the subject of many favourable reviews. It went through three impressions, was sold out years ago and today is a collector's item. This second melange of legal humour and piquant revelations of personalities in the law of Southern Africa is almost entirely new, containing nothing that appeared in the first volume except a number of brilliant caricatures of which the temptation to reproduce was irresistible.
Jurisprudence – An Introduction is aimed at students about to embark on a course in jurisprudence, legal theory or legal philosophy.
The author has analysed the various philosophies extensively, and has indicated the intensity of current jurisprudential debates in relation to South African law.

Selected essays by notable scholars that address practical issues of concern and offer possible solutions regarding future peace in Jerusalem. Many of the perspectives in these essays are unique and have never been published for a wider audience. Contributors consider aspects of the "politics of religion" - an issue rarely explored objectively in existing literature. Other articles propose ways of mediating the challenges of Jerusalem. In covering a range of crucial subjects, the book will appeal to Jewish and Christian audiences alike. Other primary readers include Middle East and law scholars.
The expansion of married women's property rights was a main achievement of the first wave of feminism in Latin America. As Carmen Diana Deeere and Magdalena Leon reveal, however, the disjuncture between rights and actual ownership remains vast. This is particularly true in rural areas, where the distribution of land between men and women is highly unequal. In their pioneering, twelve-country comparative study, the authors argue that property ownership is directly related to women's bargaining power within the household and community, point out changes resulting from recent gender-progressive legislation, and identify additional areas for future reform, including inheritance rights of wives.
The result of the UK referendum in June 2016 on membership of the European Union had immediate repercussions across the UK, the EU and internationally. As the dust begins to settle, attention is now naturally drawn to understanding why this momentous decision came about and how and when the UK will leave the EU. What are the options for the new legal settlements between the UK and the EU? What will happen to our current political landscape within the UK in the time up to and including its exit from the EU? What about legal and political life after Brexit? Within a series of short essays, Brexit Time explores and contextualises each stage of Brexit in turn: pre-referendum; the result; the process of withdrawal; rethinking EU relations; and post-Brexit. During a time of intense speculation and commentary, this book offers an indispensable guide to the key issues surrounding a historic event and its uncertain aftermath.
