South African shipping law is a rich amalgam of English common law and Roman-Dutch civilian principles. Its provenance was profoundly influenced first by Dutch dominance over the seas and world trade during the 17th and 18th centuries, and then by the might of the English commercial empire of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Today's South African shipping lawyer continues to draw on both systems, supplemented by innovative developments, especially in admiralty practice.
The second edition of Shipping Law & Admiralty Jurisdiction in South Africa follows ten years after its first publication. The book aims to cover all aspects of admiralty jurisdiction and practice, and general shipping law, in one volume.
The law of Expropriation has been changed by the Constitution in important respects, including the circumstances in which Expropriation may be used for land reform, and the measure of compensation. It will feature prominently in South Africa's land reform programme, and is considered in the first eight chapters of the book. Three chapters are devoted to the acquisition of rights by labour tenants under the Land Reform (Labour Tenants) Act. The restitution of land rights, under the Restitution of Land Rights Act, to people deprived of, or prevented from owning land, by racially discriminatory laws or practices after 1913, is given detailed analysis. Acquisition of rights by ways of necessity and prescription are each dealt with in separate chapters.
Since 1994, a stream of national and provincial education laws and policies has altered the landscape of South African schooling dramatically - replacing the discriminatory and fragmented legal framework under apartheid with a uniform system aimed at making the constitutional right to education a reality for the people of South Africa. Schools and the Law describes and explains the current legal framework governing our schools. It addresses the key legal and policy instruments affecting schools and covers the growing body of case law on schools and education. The title includes the text of the core laws and policy instruments governing school education.
The field of forensic investigation has grown significantly in South Africa over the past few years. This growth in the field is mostly due to the fact that investigations are now also undertaken by private and corporate bodies, and by government institutions other than the South African Police Service. The field of investigation has moved from being the sole domain of the police to including other role-players. The latest developments in the forensic investigation discipline are a result of the fact that forensic investigation is a continually evolving science. The new democratic dispensation also requires that all investigations must be conducted within the ambit of the Constitution.
The authors of Forensic Investigation: Legislative Principles and Investigative Practice aim to meet the needs of this field by examining how forensic investigations should be conducted in South Africa, with reference to local legislative principles and scientific processes.
Forensic Investigation: Legislative Principles and Investigative Practice commences by covering aspects such as the constitutional basis for public and private policing, the investigation process, and the characteristics of a good investigator. The book highlights the basic concepts of investigation and then proceeds to examine more sophisticated specialised aspects, such as medico-legal evidence, DNA, and policing in a cyber-world. The work also features more recent developments in the field, such as analysing the behaviour of offenders and the choices they make during the commission of crimes. These aspects are dealt with in relation to forensic geography and offender profiling.
Forensic Investigation: Legislative Principles and Investigative Practice takes the reader from the scene of the incident (the crime scene) to the courtroom, and from investigation to prosecution – all essential components of the investigative process. The book explores the significant role and conduct of an investigator, seeking to ensure that current and future generations of investigators are aware of the challenges and changes in the investigation of crimes, incidents and transgressions, and are also familiar with the prosecution processes that follow. This book will undoubtedly prove to be an invaluable and essential tool for all investigators.

This revised and updated fifth edition of Accounting for Managers builds on the international success of the previous editions in explaining how accounting is used by non-financial managers. Emphasizing the interpretation rather than the construction of accounting information, Accounting for Managers encourages a critical, rather than an unthinking acceptance of accounting techniques. Whilst immensely valuable for planning, decision-making and control, users of accounting information need to recognize the assumptions behind, and the limitations of particular accounting techniques. As in the previous editions, the book links theory with practical examples and case studies drawn from real business situations across a wide range of manufacturing, retail and service industries.
In 1994, Malawi adopted an unusually progressive Constitution, unprecedented in the country's political and constitutional history. 'Human Rights under the Malawian Constitution' takes stock of the human rights jurisprudence generated by the new Constitution and the new judiciary in Malawi over the past sixteen years. The book examines the largely unreported Malawian cases and legislation and systematically analyses them with a view to constructing a coherent corpus of human rights jurisprudence, which is essential to consolidating democracy, establishing the foundation for the rule of law and ushering in an era of accelerated development in Malawi. The author draws on a wealth of international and comparative jurisprudence, including that from other African countries, without detracting from the main objective of constructing a Malawian brand of jurisprudence. Ultimately the book reveals that it is possible for human rights to grow even in underdeveloped countries. 'Human Rights under the Malawian Constitution' is intended for use by judges, lawyers, legal scholars, students, civil society, law reform officers, human rights institutions and comparative law scholars. _______________________________________________ Danwood Mzikenge Chirwa is Associate Professor of Law and Head of the Department of Public Law at the University of Cape Town. He has published widely in the fields of constitutional and human rights law. _______________________________________________ ' This book] makes a significant contribution to African constitutional law. The author has engaged in a careful and systematic treatment of all of the clauses contained in Malawi's Bill of Rights, as well as the jurisprudence which has been developed by its courts over the past 16 years .... Accordingly, this is a work which anyone who wishes to engage in African constitutional law in general and Malawian law in particular will be required to use as a major source of reference.' Dennis Davis, Judge of the High Court of South Africa; Honorary Professor of Law, University of Cape Town ' This book] fills a gap in the literature of human rights in the region with its excellent examination of the Malawian provisions. It is well written and will appeal to a wider readership than Malawi.' Boyce Wanda, Professor of Law, University of Fort Hare
Police officials under the Constitution are responsible for upholding the law and protecting South African citizens. Applied Law for Police Officials aims to give police officials the knowledge and understanding that will equip them to do so. In order to investigate crime effectively and to gather evidence that will enable the prosecuting authorities to secure convictions after following due process of law, police officials have to be familiar with the fundamental elements of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence. In Applied Law for Police Officials these elements are explained and discussed in the context of a Constitution that endorses the importance of human rights. This fifth edition of the textbook has been updated with the latest case law and is also enhanced to reflect the most recent attempts by Parliament to curb criminal behaviour. New topics, such as offences related to essential infrastructure, organised crime, human trafficking and cybercrime, have been introduced and are explained in a manner that is practical and will benefit police officials of all ranks and levels of experience.
Children's rights are now enshrined in the South African constitution, and lip service is regularly paid to them, but how effectively are they implemented? From research undertaken by the Centre for Socio-Legal Research over the last twenty years, the question has increasingly arisen of how much use such rights are on paper if the systems charged with ensuring their implementation are inadequate for the task. Possibly even more important, it has become evident that it is not enough to make 'the best interests of the child' the touch-stone for legal and welfare decisions on children, if the individuals charged with those decisions have little training -- or ready access to expertise -- in child development or the realities of a fast-changing country of many cultures. Decisions that radically affect children's futures -- whether custody decisions on divorce, fostering, children's home, adoption placements, or juvenile court decisions -- have life-long consequences. But there is also little hard evidence of what is influencing such decisions in practice, nor how decision-making for South African children can be improved. This book is the result of an attempt to remedy some of these gaps. It presents the evidence from an interdisciplinary collaborative project set up to research how legal decisions on children are being made in the new South Africa, and how children's rights are faring in practice in a variety of relevant settings.
This is the first title on the South African law of unjustified enrichment, covering the entire field of this area of the law.

By offering clarity of expression and academic rigour, The International Law of the Sea remains the best choice for students.

foreign investment. The main focus is on the law governed by
bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. It traces the
purpose, context, and evolution of the clauses and provisions
