The Nonsense Factory - How Our Bloated, Broken Legal System Is Failing Regular Americans (Hardcover): Bruce Cannon Gibney The Nonsense Factory - How Our Bloated, Broken Legal System Is Failing Regular Americans (Hardcover)
Bruce Cannon Gibney
R541 R401 Discovery Miles 4 010 Save R140 (26%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Does the American legal system work as advertised? Does it even work at all? News about abusive police, rotting prisons, and Congressional corruption all point to deep problems. In THE NONSENSE FACTORY, Bruce Cannon Gibney shows that these defects are not aberrations, but the product of the legal system's ceaseless, heedless growth. The whole factory of the law--legislation, enforcement, judgment, and corrections--has become so ambitious, yet so ignorant, that it cannot help but produce endless problems. The law sprawls into unknowable chaos, and citizens find themselves tangled in a web of obligations they cannot possibly honor, and victims for the unscrupulous to easily exploit. We see this playing out daily in Donald Trump's America. The legal crisis has become urgent. America is rapidly arriving at the point where no one can understand what law actually is or should do. The result is a system at war with itself, mutually distrustful and hostile in the extreme. The system can be salvaged; indeed, it must be. The risks of inaction are immense--the very stability of our country.

The Chief - The Life and Turbulent Times of Chief Justice John Roberts (Hardcover): Joan Biskupic The Chief - The Life and Turbulent Times of Chief Justice John Roberts (Hardcover)
Joan Biskupic 1
R587 R430 Discovery Miles 4 300 Save R157 (27%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

An incisive biography of the Supreme Court's enigmatic Chief Justice, taking us inside the momentous legal decisions of his tenure so far John Roberts was named to the Supreme Court in 2005 claiming he would act as a neutral umpire in deciding cases. His critics argue he has been anything but, pointing to his conservative victories on voting rights and campaign finance. Yet he broke from orthodoxy in his decision to preserve Obamacare. How are we to understand the motives of the most powerful judge in the land? In The Chief, award-winning journalist Joan Biskupic contends that Roberts is torn between two, often divergent, priorities: to carry out a conservative agenda, and to protect the Court's image and his place in history. Biskupic shows how Roberts's dual commitments have fostered distrust among his colleagues, with major consequences for the law. Trenchant and authoritative, The Chief reveals the making of a justice and the drama on this nation's highest court.

Evidential Aspects of Law Enforcement will assist law enforcement officers with gaining a clear understanding of the legal principles involved in the gathering of evidence, whether on crime scenes or during further investigations. A successful prosecution depends on the value of the evidence gathered from the moment that the crime was reported. Evidential Aspects of Law Enforcement addresses the law of evidence and aspects of the law of criminal procedure that relate to the law of evidence. The book also explains the importance of effecting an arrest to facilitate the gathering of evidence from a suspect (such as fingerprints and DNA), and how the conduct of the enforcement officer may affect investigations. Evidential Aspects of Law Enforcement explains technical legal terms in a straightforward and practical way, and contains the information that all law enforcement officers require to perform their duties effectively.

Increased international investment and accelerating economic growth in Africa in general and in Anglophone Africa mean that businesses located both within and outside these jurisdictions will increasingly demand and require advice on cross-border commercial litigation. As the scope and scale of economic activity increases, the law governing commercial litigation will have to be developed and refined to reflect Africa's importance as a commercial hub. In Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa, the authors, for the first time in a work of this nature, set out the broad framework of the private international law rules in operation in each of the sixteen Anglophone jurisdictions considered (Botswana, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe). The authors identify and clarify the law to be applied as it relates to: (i) civil jurisdiction over commercial disputes involving a foreign element; (ii) the enforcement of foreign judgments; and (iii) the availability and nature of the interim remedies, in each of the sixteen jurisdictions addressed.

Business Transactions Law, now in its ninth edition, addresses fundamental questions about business transactions: When is a transaction recognised as binding at law? If a transaction is binding, what is its legal effect? Are there any circumstances in which a party is excused from carrying out his side of a transaction? What legal redress does a party have if his opposite number fails without excuse to do what he has promised in terms of the transaction? Apart from this redress, are there any other legal means available to a party to ensure that he receives what he has been promised by the other party? Finally, what is the position if a party, due to financial difficulties, is unable to carry out or complete his side of the transaction? The objective, as with previous editions, is to meet the needs of students and others taking their first steps in the complex field of business transactions law. The aim is also to cover a significant part of the syllabus recommended by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. New legislation and case law are included in the ninth edition. The chapters on Interpretation and Credit Agreements have been re-written and other chapters have been revised wherever necessary to reflect legislative changes or developments in the case law. The ninth edition of Business Transactions Law has approximately 200 new case summaries in total.

R100 R86 Discovery Miles 860 Save R14 (14%) In stock

Writing an essay is rather like building a house. First, you need to have a carefully thought-out plan and a clear idea of how to use all the different tools and building materials. Of course, you also need to know what the finished project should look like. What are the conventions that other building contractors use? What does the home-owner expect? Only once you fully understand the basic principles of building are you able to put together, brick by brick, the four walls, a floor, a roof and the finishing touches, such as windows and doors. Much the same is true of writing an essay. You need to know the building regulations. You need to know what you are expected to build. You need to know the secrets and tricks of the trade. You need to practise. In this handbook, students - those who are about to write their first essay and those who have written numerous essays but who know that they are capable of obtaining better results - are guided along the basic principles of planning and building an essay that is well structured, clear and concise, and meets the high international standards required by tertiary educational institutions.

R850 R705 Discovery Miles 7 050 Save R145 (17%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The last monograph to be dedicated exclusively to the law of servitudes in South African law was the 1973 edition of Hall & Kellaway: Servitudes. Since then, interesting regulatory and constitutional issues have arisen in servitude disputes. The Law of Servitudes covers the traditional areas of the law relating to servitudes, such as the nature and characteristics of servitudes, the acquisition of servitudes, the relationship between the servitude holder and the landowner (including remedies available to either party), the termination of servitudes, and includes separate chapters on praedial servitudes, personal servitudes, and statutory and public servitudes. The Law of Servitudes seeks to establish the current state of the law, seen in the context of its historical development in South Africa, as well as to consider the current position with reference to the effect of the Constitution on the development of private law.
