In April 2019 Lord Ashcroft published the results of his year-long investigation into South Africa's captive-bred lion industry. Over eleven pages of a single edition of the Mail on Sunday he showed why this sickening trade, which involves appalling cruelty to the 'King of the Savannah' from birth to death, has become a stain on the country.
Unfair Game features the shocking results of a new inquiry Lord Ashcroft has conducted into South Africa's lion business. In the book, he shows how tourists are unwittingly being used to support the abuse of lions; he details how lions are being tranquilised and then hunted in enclosed spaces; he urges the British government to ban the import of captive-bred lion trophies; and he demonstrates why Asia's insatiable appetite for lion bones has become a multimillion-dollar business linked to criminality and corruption, which now underpins South Africa's captive lion industry.

Healthcare delivery in the 21st century has become increasingly complex and demanding . Clinical consultations frequently raise scientific, ethical and legal challenges. While scientific issues may be resolved using an evidence-based medicine (EBM) approach, ethical theory is needed to justify decision making in the face of ethical conflict. Medical ethics, law and human rights: a South African perspective provides the conceptual background and analytic skills necessary to assist with the resolution of ethical dilemmas encountered in the South African healthcare environment. Medical ethics, law and human rights: a South African perspective uses case studies to help the healthcare team to identify and analyse ethical, moral and value concepts, and to apply these to scenarios that they may encounter on a daily basis. Part 1 explores theories and principles of ethics (including African philosophy), introduces medical law, discusses health and human rights, and also makes the transition from theory to practice. Part 2 looks at specific topics in healthcare that raise challenges from an ethics perspective - HIV/AIDS, use of social media, euthanasia, human reproduction, genetics and genomics. In view of the increasing emphasis on ethical considerations in healthcare from the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), coupled with the rising incidence of litigation in healthcare, Medical ethics, law and human rights: a South African perspective is essential reading for health science, law and philosophy students as well as practising healthcare professionals.
The purpose of this book is to set out the fundamental principles governing the law of medical malpractice in clear and understandable terms, so that those principles can be applied in daily practice.
The intersection of the fields of medicine and the law produces formidable challenges. For the lawyer, the applicable legal principles and issues are as intellectually and professionally demanding as encountered in any field of the law. For the medical practitioner, there is at present an obstructive uncertainty and anxiety about the legal rules which apply, and the health professions accordingly feel under siege.
Added to this is the formative role that government and civil society plays in considering and assimilating into our legal system profound policy considerations affecting our most intimate interests. This book addresses these issue clearly and comprehensively.

The authors are highly regarded labour law practitioners and academics who have published extensively in this field.
Most planning degrees at South African universities include a compulsory course in planning law. This is usually the first time that planning students encounter law as a discipline. Planning students therefore need to familiarise themselves with sources such as the Constitution, legislation and court decisions. The Planning Law Casebook seeks to assist students in this regard. Understanding how to use, interpret and apply case law is perhaps the most difficult aspect of planning law.
Part I of the Planning Law Casebook describes the different parts of a typical court case. Part II briefly explains how the Casebook should be used. Part III contains discussions and analyses of 18 key planning law cases, which reflect the different components of current planning law. Part IV is a glossary in which the relevant legal concepts and terminology are defined. Part V includes extracts from applicable legislation. Part VI provides examples of typical planning documents, such as a deed of transfer, a notice of the removal of a restrictive condition or rezoning, and a part of a schedule to a town planning scheme indicating one of the zoning categories.
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.
Realising the Right to Basic Education examines the crucial roles of civil society and the courts in developing the right to education in South Africa amid substantial and persistent inequalities in education provisioning. Unlike other socio-economic rights in the Constitution, the right to basic education is framed as an unqualified right - it is not subject to qualifiers such as 'progressive realisation' and 'within the state's available resources'. Yet, two and a half decades into South Africa's constitutional democracy, the apartheid legacy of unequal education still lingers. Poor, predominantly black learners continue to attend historically disadvantaged schools that are often severely under-resourced, producing poor learner outcomes. This has given rise to a wave of civil society activism since around 2008 - and organisations have been utilising legal mobilisation as a key tool to effect change in historically disadvantaged schools. The litigation initiated by these organisations has contributed to a rich and evolving jurisprudence on the right to basic education as a substantive right. However, in a significant number of these cases, the relevant education departments have not complied with court orders, requiring litigants to seek increasingly innovative, experimentalist and even coercive remedies to ensure that judgments are implemented. Realising the Right to Basic Education presents an overview of these education-provisioning cases and the roles played by civil society and the courts. It analyses the contribution of these two role-players in the normative development of the right to basic education. The book also aims to identify a viable framework for interpreting the right to basic education - one that can guide South Africa towards adequate education provisioning and, ultimately, facilitate transformation of basic education in South Africa's historically disadvantaged schools.
The book consists of three parts.
Part 1, which comprises 5 chapters, deals with the legal-philosophical aspects of communications law. In Part II , we deal with certain statutory and common law limitations to the right to freedom of expression. Part III deals with specific methods of communication, ie the press, electronic communications, broadcasting, computers, and entertainment.
The South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 aims to make high-quality basic education accessible to all South African children irrespective of race and geographic location in the country. Written by significant role-players and members of the judiciary, Pathways to Successful Schooling reflects on the journey of South African schooling over the past 20 years. This book was prompted by the 2016 Schools Act symposium, Schools Act @ 20: Charting the Way Forward, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Schools Act. Looking at education since 1996, this book considers practical alternatives for addressing contentious matters. Unique to this work is the inclusion of the first ever analysis of the background to the drafting of the Schools Act. Pathways to Successful Schooling gives perspectives on dreams, expectations and realities. It reflects on what became of the vision of the Education White Paper 1 and the Schools Act. An international dimension is added by the discussion of constitutional changes and values in the context of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. The book also looks at legislating for the realisation of children's rights and offers the view that, although the Act has set the pace, broader efforts will enhance children's rights in South Africa.
Law Clinics and the Clinical Law Movement in South Africa provides guidelines to assist clinicians and universities with the development of the clinical legal education curriculum, teaching methodology and the administration of a university-based law clinic. The manual was developed from contributions taken from papers and presentations given by clinicians attending workshops of the South African University Law Clinics Association (SAULCA). The book offers a wide range of guidance on many components of clinical legal education, including integrating clinical legal education with the requirements of higher education and the legal profession, setting goals and objectives for a clinical legal education programme, and an examination of the basic principles of teaching and learning as well as assessment. It also focuses on the different methods of teaching and learning, such as lecturing, supervision, legal research and mediation. The teaching portfolio covers in detail many subjects, including client communications, drafting and civil trial advocacy. The manual pays attention to the day-to-day administration of a university-based law clinic with practical support on financial and office management as well as accreditation. The unique feature of this manual is that the material covered in many sections offers practical advice and examples which will be of benefit to newly appointed law clinicians. The manual adheres to SAULCA's vision, mission and objectives, and in collaboration with its member university law clinics, SAULCA continues to investigate and explore new methods and processes which aim to improve clinical legal education and access to justice.
In hierdie werk word gekonsentreer op die gemene onderliggende beginsels van enersyds die verskillende vorme van saaklike sekerheidsregte waar telkens sprake is van 'n bepaalde saak as vermoensobjek waarop die skuldeiser 'n beperkte saaklike sekerheidsreg vestig en in sommige gevalle, danksy sodanige beperkte saaklike sekerheidsreg oor die aldus geidentifiseerde saak van die skuldenaar, 'n preferente en versekerde aanspraak op verhaal uit die opbrengs van daardie sekerheidsobjek het ter voldoening van sy uitstaande skuldvordering. 'n Skuldeiser kan andersyds ook met sy skuldenaar ooreenkom om vermoensobjekte, anders as die objekte van saaklike regte van die skuldenaar, as sekerheidsobjekte te identifiseer. Die vestiging van 'n saaklike sekerheidsreg verander nie die saldo van boedelbates van die skuldenaar waarteen sy skuldeisers verhaal kan neem nie - dit plaas hoogstens 'n kordon om die verhaalbare waarde van die geidentifiseerde sekerheidsobjekte ten gunste van die versekerde preferente skuldeiser. By persoonlike sekerheidsregte word daarteenoor verhaal geneem op bates wat aan 'n ander regsubjek as die primere skuldenaar behoort en wat dus nie deel van die saldo van die skuldenaar se bates vorm nie.
While a great deal has been written on the topic already, this textbook focuses on introducing human rights law in a comprehensive but easy-to-understand manner to the benefit of both lecturers and students. It is hoped that this work will assist lecturers who teach the subject at first- or second-year level, both in the LLB degree and other university programmes, as well as non-governmental organisations and others parties who train their staff or stakeholders in basic principles of the law. The book should also benefit students by covering the breadth of human rights law directly applicable to students studying law in South Africa.
The text contains a number of scenarios to help readers grasp the material being discussed by illustrating relevant constitutional principles and issues. Cases are integrated into the text in a manner that should facilitate an understanding of their application. This book contains complete court judgments, statutes, a bibliography and questions to respective chapters which will assist lecturers and students in finding their way beyond the book at whatever level they deem appropriate.

An engaging, case-based approach to the most up-to-date legal topics gives educators a basic understanding of the legal aspects of their work. This text introduces K-12 educators to a body of school law that will help them to conduct themselves in a legally defensible manner. A balance of case law, statutory law, constitutional provisions, and analytical commentary, this vital book covers a wide range of topics including: sources of law under which educators operate; legal restraints to state action in K-12 education; legal rights and restrictions applicable to students and teachers; law pertaining to persons with disabilities; and liability for damages as a result of official action or inaction. In addition, broad legal concepts such as due process, equal protection, freedom of expression, the wall separating church and state, and reasonable search are analyzed to assist professional educators in gaining a better understanding of the legal landscape in which they operate. The entire text is written in a clear, engaging style appropriate for those who do not have extensive legal backgrounds.
Written for upper-level and graduate courses in School Law. Providing an all-inclusive treatment of the current status and evolution of the law governing public schools, this is the most comprehensive and well-documented school law text available. Public School Law: Teachers' and Students' Rights, Seventh Edition, addresses legal principles applicable to practitioners in a succinct but comprehensive manner. It uniquely blends a detailed treatment of landmark cases with a thorough discussion of the legal context, trends, and generalizations to guide all school personnel in their daily activities. Information in this text will help alleviate concerns voiced by educators who either do not know the legal concepts that govern schools or feel that the scales of justice have been tipped against them. Primarily written for school administrators and teachers to learn the most important points of the cases and how the cases will impact their practices, this new edition covers a wider range of legal topics, takes a much more in-depth approach to discussing the cases presented, and cites many more current cases that are relevant to practitioners than any other school law textbook in comparison.
How ordinary Americans, frustrated by the legal and political wrangling over the Second Amendment, can fight for reforms that will both respect gun owners' rights and reduce gun violence. Efforts to reduce gun violence in the United States face formidable political and constitutional barriers. Legislation that would ban or broadly restrict firearms runs afoul of the Supreme Court's current interpretation of the Second Amendment. And gun rights advocates have joined a politically savvy firearms industry in a powerful coalition that stymies reform. Ian Ayres and Fredrick Vars suggest a new way forward. We can decrease the number of gun deaths, they argue, by empowering individual citizens to choose common-sense gun reforms for themselves. Rather than ask politicians to impose one-size-fits-all rules, we can harness a libertarian approach-one that respects and expands individual freedom and personal choice-to combat the scourge of gun violence. Ayres and Vars identify ten policies that can be immediately adopted at the state level to reduce the number of gun-related deaths without affecting the rights of gun owners. For example, Donna's Law, a voluntary program whereby individuals can choose to restrict their ability to purchase or possess firearms, can significantly decrease suicide rates. Amending red flag statutes, which allow judges to restrict access to guns when an individual has shown evidence of dangerousness, can give police flexible and effective tools to keep people safe. Encouraging the use of unlawful possession petitions can help communities remove guns from more than a million Americans who are legally disqualified from owning them. By embracing these and other new forms of decentralized gun control, the United States can move past partisan gridlock and save lives now.
