R2,885 Discovery Miles 28 850 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Legal academics in Europe publish a wide variety of materials including books, articles and essays, in an assortment of languages, and for a diverse readership.

Analysing research evaluation practices across more than ten jurisdictions and multiple contexts, this insightful book reveals how evaluation practices differ across Europe. Through this analysis, the book exposes a range of possibilities for further debate and study. Engaging and topical, Evaluating Academic Legal Research in Europe will be valuable reading for legal academics, university and faculty managers, higher education policy makers and administrators as well as editors of law journals, legal publishers and research foundation and funding bodies.

Executory Contracts in Insolvency Law - A Global Guide (Hardcover): Jason Chuah, Eugenio Vaccari Executory Contracts in Insolvency Law - A Global Guide (Hardcover)
Jason Chuah, Eugenio Vaccari
R4,666 Discovery Miles 46 660 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Executory Contracts in Insolvency Law offers a unique, comprehensive, and up-to-date transnational study of the topic, including an analysis of certain countries which have never previously been undertaken in English. Written by experts in the field, with extensive practical and theoretical knowledge of both research and professional experience, this is a groundbreaking investigation into the philosophies and rationales behind the different policy choices adopted and implemented by a range of over 30 jurisdictions across the globe. With contributions from more than 40 insolvency law experts, this book provides extensive coverage of executory contracts, encompassing both developed and developing countries, and drawing on not only so-called common and civil law systems, but also, countries with hybrid systems of law. The book explores ipso facto clauses, improvements that could be made, as well as casting light on procedural and tactical issues and considerations when attempting to address executory contracts in the different jurisdictions. Providing a globalised and comparative perspective on executory contracts in insolvency law, this book will be an invaluable tool for legal practitioners requiring a cross border perspective on the subject, as well as for academics and researchers pursuing a study of the topic. It will also benefit policy makers and institutions seeking to introduce insolvency law reforms in their home countries.

Research Handbook on Remote Warfare (Paperback): Jens David Ohlin Research Handbook on Remote Warfare (Paperback)
Jens David Ohlin
R994 Discovery Miles 9 940 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The practice of armed conflict has changed radically in the last decade. With eminent contributors from legal, government and military backgrounds, this Research Handbook addresses the legal implications of remote warfare and its significance for combatants, civilians, policymakers and international lawyers. Primarily focused on the legality of all forms of remote warfare, including targeted killings by drone, cyber-attacks, and autonomous weapons, each chapter gives a compelling insight beyond the standard and reactionary criticisms of these technologies. Current assumptions of remote warfare are challenged and discussed from a variety of international perspectives. These include governing the use of force, humanitarian law, criminal law, and human rights law. Contributors consider the essential features of current warfare regulations, and test their strength for controlling these new technologies. Suggestions are made for the future development of law to control the limits of modern remote warfare, with a particular focus on the possibility of autonomous weapons. This is an essential read for academics and students of jus ad bellum, international humanitarian law, criminal law and human rights. Students of political science, governance and military studies will also find this a thought-provoking insight into modern warfare techniques and the complex legal issues they create.

The The Responsible Mind in South African Criminal Law (Paperback): James Grant The The Responsible Mind in South African Criminal Law (Paperback)
James Grant
R445 R381 Discovery Miles 3 810 Save R64 (14%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

South African criminal law has accepted that it is only fair to punish those who - if they do wrong - are responsible for doing wrong. Responsibility - that the accused must be blameworthy - finds expression in several specific requirements of South African criminal law: voluntariness, fault, and, in particular, capacity, into which the `insanity' defence falls. The Responsible Mind in South African Criminal Law critically analyses these requirements, and includes an empirical component in this analysis. The book also identifies and critically analyses the underlying model of responsibility adopted in our law and considers the alternatives. The conclusion from the empirical component and critical analysis is that the specific requirements are unclear and even incoherent, and that this is a function of the underlying model of responsibility, which identifies random capricious and arbitrary conduct as responsible conduct. Alternative models of responsibility are discussed, and a `compatibilist' model of reason sensitivity is selected as a better foundation for criminal responsibility. The Responsible Mind in South African Criminal Law discusses the implications of adopting this model for the various specific requirements of South African criminal law and proposes appropriate modifications. Ultimately a new model of criminal responsibility and a revised set of specific requirements are proposed, together with a proposed new statutory test for responsibility.

Hydraulic Fracturing in the Karoo - Critical Legal and Environmental Perspectives (Paperback): Jan Glazewski, Surina Esterhuyse Hydraulic Fracturing in the Karoo - Critical Legal and Environmental Perspectives (Paperback)
Jan Glazewski, Surina Esterhuyse
R709 R593 Discovery Miles 5 930 Save R116 (16%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Hydraulic Fracturing in the Karoo: Critical Legal and Environmental Perspectives explores a broad-ranging set of questions related to proposed hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking' in the Karoo. The book is multidisciplinary, with contributors including natural scientists, social scientists, and academics from the humanities, all concerned with the ways in which scientific facts and debates about fracking have been framed and given meaning. The work comprises four parts: Part 1 provides an international, legal, energy, economic, and revenue overview of the topic. Part 2 has a physio-geographic theme, with chapters on the inter-related aspects of water, geology, geo-hydrology, seismicity and biodiversity, as well as archaeological and palaeontological considerations. Part 3 focuses on public health, and sociological and humanities-related aspects, and Part 4 addresses the relevant laws, emphasising their implementation and the role of governance. The underlying theme of Hydraulic Fracturing in the Karoo: Critical Legal and Environmental Perspectives is one of caution. The book emphasises the need for collaboration between the natural and social sciences and the responsibilities of those charged with the implementation and governance of the fracking enterprise if South Africa hopes to effectively manage fracking at all.

The issue of pre-trial release or bail remains an important topic in the criminal justice process. This is mainly because bail is concerned with one of the most important principles of justice, namely, individual freedom. The denial of release after arrest constitutes, without doubt, serious infraction to personal freedom. Thus, knowledge of the processes related to pre-trial release is important, not only to lawyers, but also to all who are interested in the right to freedom. A Guide to Bail Applications second edition expands on some of the most important issues, case discussions and case excerpts related to bail applications. New information is also included which offers somewhat fresher perspectives to the material, without necessarily detracting from the general style, poise and content of the previous edition.

Principles of market abuse regulation - A comparative of South African perspective (Paperback): Howard Chitimira Principles of market abuse regulation - A comparative of South African perspective (Paperback)

R295 R260 Discovery Miles 2 600 Save R35 (12%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Principles of Market Abuse Regulation: A Comparative South African Perspective arguably offers the most comprehensive study of the regulation and enforcement of anti-market abuse laws in South Africa today. Accordingly, the book examines the regulation of the South African securities and financial markets to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the country's anti-market abuse laws. In this regard, the book provides that inadequate and inconsistent regulation of the securities and financial markets could give rise to low investor confidence, market volatility and poor market integrity. The author traces the regulation of market abuse under the Financial Markets Act 19 of 2012 and recommends measures that could enhance the combating of market abuse in the South African securities and financial markets. The Financial Sector Regulation Act 9 of 2017, which is set to expand the mandate of the Financial Services Board, is also considered. The global financial crisis of 2007-2009 provides context for the book. Events covered include South African and American international banks' collusion and market manipulation involving price-fixing, market allocation and rigging in the trading of foreign currency pairs of the South African rand since 2007.

Public procurement law governs the acquisition of the goods and services that a state needs to fulfil its public functions. This area of law has seen tremendous development globally in recent years, and Africa is no exception. In many African countries there have been sweeping reforms in the regulatory regimes that govern public procurement. This trend shows no signs of slowing down. On the African continent, public procurement law is closely tied to pressing policy issues: from development plans to donor aid and international lending, to anti-corruption agendas and capacity challenges, to public finance management, enforceable remedies under the rule of law, and human rights. This book investigates a number of these themes to foster an understanding of public procurement law in the context of contemporary Africa. The authors of this collection, Public Procurement Regulation for 21st Century Africa, draw on their varied experience from scholarship, government, international bodies, NGOs and private practice to provide a range of perspectives that shed light on this vital field of law.

Housing Conditions: tenants' rights is the definitive legal guide to bad housing conditions in rented accommodation in England. It covers the private rented sector, council housing and homes let by housing associations or other social landlords. Previously titled Repairs: tenants' rights, it has long been recognised as the essential text for all housing advisers and lawyers dealing with disrepair and other adverse conditions affecting residents in rented housing accommodation. The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018, coming into force in March 2019, is the biggest advance in tenants' rights relating to housing conditions for a generation. Initially, it will require all new lettings to be of homes fit for habitation and that they be kept fit. It will further come to apply to virtually all residential tenancies whenever granted. This new edition takes a broader approach to housing conditions in the light of the new Act and this is reflected in the new title and also a significant revision and restructuring of the content. The text of the book is now concerned more generally with problems arising from the poor condition of much rented housing. It deals with fitness for human habitation and with health and safety issues going well beyond the traditional concern of lawyers and other advisers with the topic of repair/disrepair (while also dealing with those issues). Housing Conditions: tenants' rights outlines what tenants can do to obtain better conditions themselves, but also what local councils, responsible for housing conditions in their areas, can do to help them achieve improved conditions. Contents include: *landlords' obligations *enforcing rights *private tenants: involving the local council *funding *proceedings under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 *criminal proceedings and rogue landlords *infestations, hazards and absence of amenities *compensation *Practical step-by-step guidance on how to bring a disrepair claim *Extensive set of precedents with worked examples used at all stages of the court process, extracts from legislation and helpful guidance on technical information Housing Conditions: tenants' rights is about bad housing conditions in rented accommodation in England. It is primarily written for the assistance of the occupiers of that housing and their advisers, but it will also be useful to landlords, providers of accommodation and to those who advise them. Written and structured in an accessible and practical way, it is an indispensable resource for both non-lawyers and busy practitioners.

Large-scale, interoperable biobanks are an increasingly important asset in today's life science research and, as a result, multiple types of biobanks are being established around the globe with very different financial, organizational and legal set-ups. With interdisciplinary chapters written by lawyers, sociologists, doctors and biobank practitioners, Global Genes, Local Concerns identifies and discusses the most pressing issues in contemporary biobanking. This timely book addresses pressing questions such as: how do national biobanks best contribute to translational research?; What are the opportunities and challenges that current regulations present for translational use of biobanks?; How does inter-biobank coordination and collaboration occur on various levels?; and how could academic and industrial exploitation, ownership and IPR issues be addressed and facilitated? Identifying that biobanks' foundational and operational set-ups should be legally and ethically sound, while at the same time reflecting the hopes and concerns of all the involved stakeholders, this book contributes to the continued development of international biobanking by highlighting and analysing the complexities in this important area of research. Academics in the fields of law and ethics, health law and biomedical law, as well as biobank managers and policymakers will find this insightful book a stimulating and engaging read.

Ubuntu: An African Jurisprudence examines how and why South African courts and law-makers have been using the concept of ubuntu over the last thirty years, reflecting the views of judges and scholars, and above all proclaiming the importance of this new idea for South African legal thinking. Although ubuntu is the product of relations in and between the close-knit groups of a precolonial society, its basic aims - social harmony and caring for others - give it an inherently inclusive scope. This principle is therefore quite capable of embracing all those who constitute the heterogeneous populations of modern states. Included in this work are discussions of two traditional institutions that provide model settings for the realisation of ubuntu: imbizo, national gatherings consulted by traditional rulers to decide matters of general concern, and indaba, a typically African process of making decisions based on the consensus of the group. Courts and law-makers have used imbizo to give effect to the constitutional requirement of participatory democracy, and indaba to suggest an alternative method of decision-making to systems of majority voting. Ubuntu offers something extraordinarily valuable to South Africa and, in fact, to the wider world. Its emphasis on our responsibility for the welfare of our fellow beings acts as a timely antidote not only to the typically rationalist, disinterested system of justice in Western law, but also to the sense of anomie so prevalent in today's society.

Property in Minerals and Petroleum is the first major academic text to analyse the state-custodianship concept in South African law with emphasis on its application in mineral and petroleum law. As such, the book seeks to stimulate academic discourse about the impact of the incorporation of state custodianship in this field of law. The book considers the nature of mineral and petroleum rights in a state-custodianship model within a constitutional context. It clarifies the institutional regime change that lead to the regulatory context in which such rights now can be acquired, transferred or lost. The first chapter of Property in Minerals and Petroleum focuses on the constitutional imperatives for reform in mineral and petroleum law, and on the changing concepts of property and landownership that paved the way for transformation. Further chapters evaluate the pre-2004 mineral and petroleum law dispensation and address the current dispensation under the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (MPRDA). The section on the MPRDA focuses on the aims and objectives of the Act; the notion of state custodianship and its impact on existing property law; the meaning of the terms 'mineral' and 'petroleum'; the nature, content and regulation of rights to minerals and petroleum; the acquisition, transfer and termination of such rights; and various miscellaneous aspects that straddle existing property law principles and the regulation of minerals and petroleum.
