Legal accounting (Paperback): Sheeda Kalideen, L. Sullivan Legal accounting (Paperback)
Sheeda Kalideen, L. Sullivan 1
R395 R328 Discovery Miles 3 280 Save R67 (17%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Few professions are free of the need to understand accounting, least of all the legal profession. Legal finance is a category all on its own, because attorneys are expected to keep trust accounts for most of their clients, deal with conveyancing and understand the issues around shared accounts, whether at corporate or domestic level.

Legal Accounting deals with the fundamentals of accounting, such as debits and credits and how income statements and balance sheets are created. The book also takes you through the transfer journal, bank reconciliations, VAT, correspondent accounts, accounting in conveyancing matters, legislation applying to attorneys’ accounting and partners’ capital accounts. Easy-to-understand examples clearly explain the principles involved.

Corporate Governance In South Africa - With International Comparisons (Paperback, 2nd Edition): Tobie Wiese Corporate Governance In South Africa - With International Comparisons (Paperback, 2nd Edition)
Tobie Wiese 1
R465 R382 Discovery Miles 3 820 Save R83 (18%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The second edition of Corporate Governance In South Africa addresses the changes in the corporate governance landscape in South Africa brought about by the King IV Report on Governance for South Africa, 2016 and changes to several international codes.

Corporate Governance In South Africa covers the following areas: the corporate governance framework in South Africa, comparisons with various international corporate governance frameworks, and contemporary governance issues. The book also offers a corporate governance implementation guide.

Examples of failed corporate governance practices, both local and international, are provided throughout the book, seeking to illustrate the importance of effective corporate governance practices by companies.

Trust law in South Africa (Paperback): Walter D. Geach Trust law in South Africa (Paperback)
Walter D. Geach
R883 R702 Discovery Miles 7 020 Save R181 (20%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

This book comprehensively, yet succinctly, covers the use and administration of trusts in South Africa. It also serves as a useful reference to more detailed texts on the subject as well as to case law. Whilst the Trust Property Control Act 57 of 1988 sets out the minimum requirements when it comes to the formation and administration of trusts, other statutes (including the Income Tax Act, the Estate Duty Act, and the Alienation of Land Act) also have a direct bearing on how trusts are formed, administered, amended and terminated. Moreover, the common law has been a major factor in the development of trust law in South Africa. This book therefore not only deals with the legislation that is relevant to trusts, but it highlights and discusses the case law which has been an essential part of the development of the law of trusts.

Crime Scene Investigation (Paperback, 1st): H. Lochner, R. Zinn Crime Scene Investigation (Paperback, 1st)
H. Lochner, R. Zinn
R511 R417 Discovery Miles 4 170 Save R94 (18%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Crime scene investigation is a practical book dealing with the management, investigation, and control and processing of crime scenes, or scenes of incident, as they are now called. The book explains the important principles of continuity of possession and the importance of preventing contamination of the scene and evidence. It also focuses on the roles of experts and aids who can help investigating officers to solve complex and varied crimes. The book pays particular attention to the administrative process involved in the handling of evidence. This includes: The responsibilities of the investigating officer who has to deal with the incident; The various ways in which a scene of incident can be documented; The handling of people who may be present at the scene; The proper identification, collection, packaging and dispatch of evidence. Two of the unique features of the book is the introduction and explanation of a new investigation principle, namely the Lochner principle, and a new search method, namely the Lochner/Zinn search method.

Finsen's The Building Contract - A Commentary On The JBCC Agreements (Paperback, 3rd Edition): Stan Segal Finsen's The Building Contract - A Commentary On The JBCC Agreements (Paperback, 3rd Edition)
Stan Segal 1
R967 R767 Discovery Miles 7 670 Save R200 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The first edition of The Building Contract by the late Eyvind Finsen was published in 1999 and followed on the 1991 publication of The New Building Contract. The earlier book was an introduction to the new Joint Buildings Contract Committee (JBCC) contract documents, whereas the later book provided commentary on the JBCC building agreements, which by then were widely used in the construction industry.

This third edition, now named Finsen’s The Building Contract, has been revised and updated. It covers the latest Principal Building Agreement (PBA) and the Nominated/Selected Subcontract Agreement (NSSA), as well as the Minor Works Agreement (MWA), and the various contract data documents and the associated forms and certificates that are used with these agreements. The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has agreed that South African organs of state may use the private sector agreement. Accordingly, this agreement has been amended in consultation with the National Department of Public Works to cater for certain of the State’s requirements.

Finsen’s book is widely recognised as a reference work in the construction industry. This updated edition will be of significant value to building professionals as well as to client bodies, attorneys and advocates who specialise in resolving construction disputes. It is also intended for students who aim to enter these fields. This book aims to equip its readers with the knowledge needed to avoid contractual disputes.

R270 R212 Discovery Miles 2 120 Save R58 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Wille's Principles of South African Law (Paperback, 9th Revised edition): Francois du Bois Wille's Principles of South African Law (Paperback, 9th Revised edition)
Francois du Bois 2
R957 R759 Discovery Miles 7 590 Save R198 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The aim of this work remains to set out the basic principles of South African private law systematically, in clear unmistakable language, and as comprehensively as is possible in a single volume. Over the years, Wille's principles has appealed to judges, practitioners and students alike, and this edition is also written with the needs of these groups in mind. This edition, of which Dale Hutchison was general editor, was a notable success in this regard, and we have sought to follow its example of balancing the retention of the basic structure of the work with innovation in the treatment of its subject matter and the dissemination of original research. We have nevertheless as far as possible maintained the very useful practice in previous editions of citing the older, original authority for a proposition alongside contemporary sources. Many of the changes were necessitated or inspired by the Constitution, which has radically altered the foundations of our legal system. The impact of the Bill of Rights on private law has been significant and is growing, via both the horizontal application of fundamental rights and their legislative implementation and elaboration. This is reflected in the structure and content of the new introductory general part as well as in the text of virtually every chapter. Importantly, the constitution has given new prominence to indigenous customary law, and in this edition we have sought, where possible in and relevant for a work of this nature, to reflect its status as equal partner of the common law. This has led to major changes in almost all of the chapters on Persons and the Family. The frequency of far-reaching judicial changes to the law combined with the uncertainties of legislative timetables to necessitate several significant revisions during the final stages of preparation for publication.

Caney's The Law Of Suretyship (Paperback, 6th Edition): C.F. Forsyth, J.T. Pretorius Caney's The Law Of Suretyship (Paperback, 6th Edition)
C.F. Forsyth, J.T. Pretorius
R870 R692 Discovery Miles 6 920 Save R178 (20%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

A book that requires no introduction, Caney’s The Law of Suretyship has, for over 70 years, been an authoritative reference work for the law of suretyship in South Africa. The 6th edition incorporates significant developments since the last edition in 2002, a period in which South African courts have been very busy in this area of the law.

This latest edition once again ensures that the treatment of its subject matter is most comprehensive, whilst remaining accessible to non-specialists.

The Law of Suretyship contains three parts, each dealing with different stages in the life of a contract of surety, namely: the nature, formation and operation of the contract; the rights of the surety; and the release of the surety. Each part contains a detailed discussion of their respective topic.

The authors’ treatment of each topic is well researched and supported by a host of authority, and the main text is enhanced by additional information and further discussions in the footnotes.

Legal Research - Purpose, Planning and Publication (Paperback): Francois Venter Legal Research - Purpose, Planning and Publication (Paperback)
Francois Venter
R270 R228 Discovery Miles 2 280 Save R42 (16%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Lawyers must be able to do research and should be able to do it well in order to honour their obligations, be those obligations commercial, in the field of criminal justice, constitutional, judicial or academic. Yet much confusion surrounds the nature of research, the need for lawyers and law students to undertake research projects, the requirements for the dissemination of the results, and their impact on policy and practice. Why is legal research needed? What does it entail? Where should one begin? What methods are used for legal research? What are the ethical issues involved? How does one go about publishing the results of one’s research in law, and which are the appropriate publication platforms? How should the quality of legal research be judged?

Legal Research: Purpose, Planning and Publication seeks to begin answering these questions, to introduce law students to legal research, and perhaps even to open up some new perspectives for those in the legal community who wish to sharpen their research skills.

The guidelines and views in Legal Research are not offered as hard doctrine, but rather as a route map for a journey of discovery, in the course of which readers may develop their own approach to the production of valuable legal research results.

Legal Research provides an introduction to ease the way of legal researchers, especially those with little expertise and experience, and perhaps to open a debate among the more experienced lawyers, who have not yet given much thought to the matter, about developing and improving our understanding of legal research in South Africa.

R664 R535 Discovery Miles 5 350 Save R129 (19%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The law of evidence is vital to each legal practitioner and forms part of the curriculum of every South African law qualification. It is compulsory even for some degrees not strictly confined to legal practice, such as certain police and related qualifications. However, the law of evidence is not considered an easy subject, especially not for persons who have never been inside a court of law.

In this work, academics with practical experience of the criminal justice system have selected a number of decided cases as well as statutes relevant to the law of evidence. Illuminating commentary is provided, which should assist any student of the discipline to get to the core of these texts. Due attention has also been paid to the constitutional aspects of the law of evidence.

Die bewysreg is onmisbaar vir elke regspraktisyn en maak deel uit van die leerplan van elke Suid-Afrikaanse regskwalifikasie. Dit is selfs verpligtend vir sommige grade wat niť tot die regspraktyk beperk is nie, soos sekere polisie en verbandhoudende kwalifikasies. Tog word bewysreg as ’n moeilike vak beskou, veral vir diegene wat nog nooit in ’n geregshof was nie.

In hierdie boek het akademici met praktiese ervaring van die strafregstelsel ’n aantal besliste hofsake sowel as wetgewing van toepassing op die bewysreg uitgesoek. Die insiggewende kommentaar wat voorsien word, behoort enige student van bewysreg tot die kern van die tekste te help deurdring. Behoorlike aandag word ook geskenk aan die grondwetlike aspekte van die bewysreg.

Professor Allan J. Lichtman, who has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential elections, makes the case for impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Shedding some light on the consequences of his ties with Russia before and after the election, complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad and abuse of executive authority, this is an authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the most controversial presidency since Richard Nixon.

'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail By the authors of the international bestseller Why Nations Fail, based on decades of research, this powerful new big-picture framework explains how some countries develop towards and provide liberty while others fall to despotism, anarchy or asphyxiating norms- and explains how liberty can thrive despite new threats. Liberty is hardly the 'natural' order of things; usually states have been either too weak to protect individuals or too strong for people to protect themselves from despotism. There is also a happy Western myth that where liberty exists, it's a steady state, arrived at by 'enlightenment'. But liberty emerges only when a delicate and incessant balance is struck between state and society - between elites and citizens. This struggle becomes self-reinforcing, inducing both state and society to develop a richer array of capacities, thus affecting the peacefulness of societies, the success of economies and how people experience their daily lives. Explaining this new framework through compelling stories from around the world, in history and from today - and through a single diagram on which the development of any state can be plotted - this masterpiece helps us understand the past and present, and analyse the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail

Labour Relations - A Southern African Perspective (Paperback, 7th Edition): Sonia Bendix Labour Relations - A Southern African Perspective (Paperback, 7th Edition)
Sonia Bendix
R650 R524 Discovery Miles 5 240 Save R126 (19%) In stock

Labour Relations: A southern African perspective is the seventh edition of a text first published in 1989 under the title Labour Relations in South Africa. At that time, it was the first comprehensive textbook of its kind and was hailed as having reached the finishing line when others were still at the starting block.

Since then continuous social, political and legislative developments, and the ever-changing labour relations scenario, have necessitated regular updates, as well as the more recent change to its title.

Like its predecessors, this edition uses the labour ‘relationship’ as its starting point, guiding readers through the establishment of labour relations systems, the key participants and interactions involved and the legislation governing these interactions. It does this by using detailed practical examples, explanations and real-life cases where applicable.

In various parts of this latest edition, the text touches on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the nature of changes to come and the implications for the world of work.
