From 1 May 2011 company law in South Africa was dramatically altered: the 1973 Act which had governed companies for the life-times of most business people and lawyers in South Africa was replaced by the Companies Act of 2008, as amended in March 2011.
A new era of company law dawned, and with it a host of new concepts, rights, remedies, obligations, procedures and sanctions were introduced. These fundamentally affect the way that every business operates and the advice and practice of every lawyer, accountant or other professional adviser.
This title, the first to cover the new Act and the new regulations, provides the hand-holding, the insight, and the understanding that business and their advisers require in order not to be wrong-footed by the new regime.

Feminist lawyers have long been engaged in critiquing the gendered nature of South African law. This project has increased in importance and scope as a result of the centrality of gender equality, as a value and a substantive right, in the South African Constitution. Gender, law and justice provides both theoretical and practical tools to enable academic and practising lawyers to apply concepts of gender equality to the law. It introduces readers to basic feminist concepts and arguments, and to a wealth of local, comparative and international material on gender and the law. It also illustrates how the law may be shaped to transform the social, cultural and economic conditions of women's lives in South Africa, at the same time as it acknowledges the limits of legal strategies for change. Gender, law and justice has three main objectives. The first is to identify the different positions of women in South Africa and to examine the disparate impact of the legal system on their lives. Secondly, it aims to expose the gender bias in legal concepts and in the content and application of legal rules. Thirdly, it suggests changes to the law, and evaluates those changes that have already occurred, with a view to developing the law so that it is better able to ensure justice and meet the diverse needs of women in South Africa.

Denis Cowen (1917-2007) is renowned for his work on negotiable instruments. Selected Essays presents readers with other facets of his life's work. His seminal essays and articles helped define areas of law such as constitutional law, environmental law, law of property and statutory interpretation. As a public intellectual in the liberal tradition, he spoke with great timeliness, insight and insistence, during apartheid, about the need for a court-enforceable bill of rights, academic freedom and pre-publication censorship.
Cowen on Law: Selected Essays spans more than 50 years of his lively, contentious and beautifully constructed texts. Leading legal thinkers introduce newly-accessible texts and provide us with a contemporary, evaluative lens. The book reveals to readers a fascinating mind. It also serves as an engrossing reflection on South Africa's legal past as well as the intersection of law and society.

Access to financial services is recognised across the world as a powerful contributor to economic growth and poverty alleviation in developing countries. Real Money, New Frontiers is a collection of case studies of innovation in Africa’s financial markets, presenting vivid testimony from across the continent of how profit-seeking organisations are experimenting with new products and models of distribution in their quest for new markets at the bottom of the financial pyramid.
Written from the perspective of service providers, this book explores the factors that make financial sector innovation succeed in often very challenging circumstances. It shows that on the continent with the worst levels of financial access in the world, there is plenty to celebrate.
Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in the workplace is not only a strategic priority in terms of moral or social responsibility, it is also an obligation regulated and governed by law. A well-designed manufacturing process (the operations system) must be both productive and safe, without potential physical, emotional and mental health risks. OSH management has become a very complex multi-functional science within operations management and total quality management (TQM). It focuses on a non-legalistic approach whereby the organisational culture fosters spontaneous OSH and a high quality of work life. This is done by using a TQM approach, based on a functional TQM model.
The Fundamental Principles of Effective Trial Advocacy guides the trial lawyer in developing a winning theory and using it throughout every phase of the trial. The text focuses in depth on each phase of the trial from opening statement to examination-in-chief, cross-examination and final argument.
The book also examines the characteristics of effective trial lawyers, the rhetorical techniques that enhance the persuasive force of advocacy and the basic principles of formulating effective questions.
Practical and engaging examples distil the fundamental principles and strategies that lead to success in the courtroom.
The motivation for this particular law of obligations is the notion that the core assumptions of the dogmatic structure of each field, and of the law of obligations as a whole, can be expected to begin to show their imperfections more clearly the further one moves from the centre, and that this kind of examination affords an opportunity to reassess both the current premises in each field as well as the overall structure of obligations.
The presumption of innocence is widely accepted as a fundamental principle of criminal justice. In some countries (like South Africa and Canada) it has been elevated to a constitutionally guaranteed right, subject to a general limitations clause. The presumption of innocence is also found in international instruments and there is much laudatory rhetoric in support of this presumption. There is, however, very little consensus regarding the exact content and scope of the presumption of innocence. This lack of consensus creates considerable confusion concerning the practical application of the presumption. This book is an attempt to secure consensus, and to present some constructive solutions to the various theoretical and practical problems which exist in respect of the presumption of innocence.
