Product Description

Issues of corruption turn up with disturbing frequency in commercial arbitration. Yet there is no uniformity in arbitral practice to tackle this phenomenon, despite a constant chorus of condemnation from all quarters. This important book attempts to explain the discrepancy between the mountain condemnation of corruption in international trade and public procurement and the persistent resistance to such condemnation. It specifically describes how corruption uses duplicity in practice, and how such practice challenges the imperativeness of condemnation.

In the process of developing theory in this area, the book analyzes relevant cases and other legal materials, and thus provides both theoretical and practical guidance in such matters as the following:

  • the arbitrability of corruption matters;
  • the validity of arbitration agreements contained in corruption contracts;
  • the standard and extent of proof that the arbitrator should apply in connection with corruption allegations;
  • the various presumptions of corruption;
  • the principle of party autonomy and corrupt relations;
  • the applicability of national mandatory laws prohibiting corruption in international arbitration;
  • the application of transnational public policy condemning corruption;
  • the effect of nullity of corrupt relations; and,
  • the degree of judicial review of arbitral awards rulings on corruption allegations.

    In addition to its matchless value as a guide to law and practice in the field, Corruption in International Trade and Commercial Arbitration is unsurpassed in the wealth of reference material it provides. Important cases from many countries are analyzed with in-depth attention to the circumstances surrounding them, and many national laws (including those of Arab countries) and international agreements are also examined. The entire work is superbly cross-referenced to indexes and a rich bibliography.

    This book will be of immeasurable value to arbitration practitioners and scholars, corruption scholars and specialists in governmental and non-governmental organizations, officials and experts concerned with money laundering, civil servants in charge of national accountability or transparency bureaus, and law enforcement officials and judges charged with criminal justice procedure in matters of corruption. ...

    Product Description
    Throughout America’s history, our laws have been a reflection of who we are, of what we value, of who has control. They embody our society’s genetic code. In the masterful hands of the subject’s greatest living historian, the story of the evolution of our laws serves to lay bare the deciding struggles over power and justice that have shaped this country from its birth pangs to the present. Law in America is a supreme example of the historian’s art, its brevity a testament to the great elegance and wit of its composition.

    From the Hardcover edition.Amazon.com Review
    Although, in the eyes of many, the law "moves slowly and sluggishly" behind society's advances, Lawrence M. Friedman, in Law in America, a historical overview from colonial times to the present, posits that this is an "illusion." As surely as culture creates law, law creates culture. The American legal system--a bubbling mélange of common ("judge-made") and civil (derived from codes) law--is a "complicated beast," born of thousands of political entities. Originally a "crude and stripped down" descendant of English law, American law in the 19th century was often an instrument of "economic promotion." In the 20th century, with the rise of a national economy, an evermore heterogeneous population, waning federalism, and the rise of what Friedman calls the "administrative-welfare state," the law daily reached further, into the jurisdiction of civil rights of all stripes, product liability, malpractice, and environmental and antitrust considerations. Friedman's chapters on the colonial period and family law are strong, while his look at the contemporary legal climate drifts toward a general discussion of political and social mores. --H. O'Billovich ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Intro law book, a great read
    Needed this for class and is well written and easy to relate to the real world. A great buy for any one interested in basic principles and hisotry of law in America.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent first read on law in the US.
    This book provides a comprehensive summary of the development of law and legal institutions of the US in anamazingly concise manner. Prof. Freidman even manages to offer synthesis and pespective /albeit a bit cynically/ in a compelling conclusion. My only unmet hopes from the book were a deeper comparison of legal systems outside English commom law and treatment of antitrust.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro to subject
    I am a newcomer to this subject and found Prof. Friedman's book informative and approachable. Prior to this, I found reading about law pretty dry and boring compared to science (my usual preference), but this book managed to hold my interest from beginning to end. Taking a historical approach, Prof. Friedman shows how the law reflected changing social conditions and priorities as America evolved from a primitive, farming-based colony to a thriving industrial state. Overall this is a readable and interesting introduction to this important subject.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction
    I am a lawyer working in Australia. I am planning to do more law study in the US later this year, and read this book on the recommendation of a professor. While a section of the book after the introduction is a little straight-forward and essentially like revision for someone familiar with the common law, the book then moves into a very accessible and engaging introduction to some major ideas, landmarks and (more or less) large-scale developments in American law. As such, it was a very useful guide to a lawyer with no real knowledge of American legal history. A nice, quick introduction which would enable the reader to delve deeper subsequently in some of the issues the book discusses.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very well done...relevant and interesting
    It is remarkable that Friedman can cover so much in such a short book, and he does it with great clarity.Moreover he excels in helping the reader feel connected to the material, making it seem more relevant and interesting.I've wanted to read the thicker Friedman book: A History of American Law, for years now, but have never gotten around to it. This much shorter book is something that can be read and easily digested in just a few days, and it has given me the increased motivation I've needed to commit to diving into Friedman's fatter history of law, as well as his similarly portly history of 20th century American law.This small volume is highly recommended as an introduction to a very engaging writer who has an admirable and extensive talent for clearly explaining the workings of our legal system and its history. ...

    The history and politics of American Indians’ unique constitutional status from a renowned scholar

    Few Americans know that Indian tribes have a legal status unique among America’s distinct racial and ethnic groups: They are also sovereign governments that engage in governmental relations with Congress. The self-rule of Native tribes long predates the founding of the United States, and that peculiar status has led to legal and political disputes—with vast sums of money hanging in the balance. From cigarette taxes to control of environmental resources to gambling law, the history of American Indians and American law has been one of clashing values and sometimes uneasy compromise.

    In this clear-sighted account, American Indian scholar N. Bruce Duthu explains the landmark cases in Indian law of the past two centuries and demonstrates their common thread throughout history, giving us an accessible entry point into a vital facet of Indian history. American Indians and the Law provides an overview of the major events, the differing principles, and the evolving perspectives that have governed relations among the tribes, the federal government, and the states since the founding of this country. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book
    Virtually every line in this book contains material recommendations regarding contract drafting.All lawyers should read this book at start of career and keep it handy. This book is hard to put down.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Especially Good for Financing and Acquisitions Contracts
    This is a good book on contract drafting, which I recommend if you write contracts dealing with financing and acquisitions, which is the author's specialty.

    For a more comprehensive resource on contract drafting, I recommend Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Second Edition by Ken Adams. That book, and Ken's web site AdamsDrafting are, in my opinion, the best sources available for advice on contract drafting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic
    My only regret is not reading this book earlier in my career.For all first years and law students, it is a must read.If you are a transactional attorney, this book is a great resource.

    Charles Fox deserves an award for creating a road map for junior associates.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for the new lawyer on contracts drafting and negotiating
    I am a new attorney who just started practicing as a transactional lawyer. I ordered 14 books on this subject. There is no other book that summarized the contracts writing process and the relevant set of legal skills that help in it like this book.
    I learned how to darft contracts by doing it while working for a large software company in Seattle. Since I became an attorney, the process became even more interesting (I had many reference points) as I now have the legal skills to add. This helped me combine the hands-on knowledge with the legal theories I learned in school to improve my drafting skills.
    The language used is so readable; analogies are thought provoking; techniques explained are useful; and review and interpretation guides are invaluable. Great resource for a new lawyer!

    The Birth of the English Common Law, 2nd ed. Cambridge University Press 1973, 1988, R.C. van Caenegem

    In The Birth of the English Common Law (2nd ed) van Caenegem by a thorough analysis of primary sources produces a coherent and fascinating exposition of the birth of the common law.The author explores centuries old controversies; did the common law arrive with the Conqueror in 1066 or was there a nascent common law in operation in pre-conquest England? Did the jury pre-date the conquest?The work is replete with fascinating insights concerning medieval society of general interest.The notion that the ordeal (trial by water or fire), and battle were surpassed as modes of proof because the royal courts were able to offer jury verdicts that were considered more reliable is just one example.Promotion of the jury in the royal courts of the Norman rulers accompanied the development of a centralized judiciary.The common law did not so much arrive with William, but flourished in Norman courts because it surpassed existing methods and found acceptance by the English.The loss of the continental Crown possessions saw the common law thrive in England alone.Van Caenegem, in a measured way, paying due attention to those of a different mind, makes a fascinating case that England did not make the common law.Rather, the common law made England.

D'Entrèves discerned three distinct sources that havecontributed to the development of natural law: Roman law teachings, Christian beliefs regarding law, and egalitarian and revolutionary theoriesof the Enlightenment. Now regarded as a classic work, Natural Law has exercised considerable infl uence over the course of Anglo-American legaltheory in the past forty years. The statements of Clarence Thomas during his 1991 Senate confi rmation hearings show that the law of nature still holds powerful appeal in defining judicial rules. ... Read more

Contributors discuss the correct choice and use of statistical techniques in the assessment of damages, the measurement and quantification of skill (in a case deciding whether video poker games require skill), the determination of disputed paternity and elections, and other areas where statistics are used in legal cases. Many of the chapters are written by the statisticians who actually participated in the cases under discussion. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars examples where statistical methods were used in legal cases
    This is a paperback version printed in 1994 in the Wiley Classic series.The classic series takes popular Wiley publications in probability and statistics and reprints them in more affordable paperback form.In this case DeGroot, Fienberg and Kadane edited a series of papers on statistics as it relates to the law.I have the original hardbound copy that was published in 1986.The classics usually do not incorporate any changes. They are merely more recent copies of the text in paperback form.

    The book contains 14 articles preceded by a preface from the editors.In 1980 the City of New York and others sued the Bureau of the Census for an assumed undecount of their population due to difficulties in counting the homeless and the illegal aliens.An undercount would cost New York some seats in the house of representatives as well as a possible reduction in funding from federal programs linked to the census count.This was the beginning of a much more public presence of statistics in the courtrooms as expert statistical witnesses such as Joseph Kadane and David Freedman argued out in court the merits and pitfalls of a possible methodology to adjust the census for the undercount.

    After that the presence of statistical witnesses, who previously appeared infrequently in medical liability cases including class action suits against drugmakers and medical device producers and occasional job discrimination suits, grew to a much more prominent role which included probabilistic estimates related to DNA matching in the O. J. Simpson murder trial.the articles in this book are as follows:
    1. An article by Paul Meier, Jerome Sacks and Sandy Zabell on an employment discrimination case in Hazelwood that was decided by the US Supreme Court.Stephen Fienberg was a discussant on this paper.
    2.An article by Benjamin King on the use of statistics in antitrust litigation.
    3.An article by Michael Finkelstein and Hans Levenbach on the use of regression methodology to estimate damages in price-fixing cases.
    4.An article by Delores Conway and Harry Roberts regarding the use of regression in employment discrimination cases. There are also discussants for this article.
    5.G. A. Whitmore wrote an article about how a labor dispute at a Reynolds Aluminum plant led to an uncontrolled shutdown of hundreds of aluminum-reduction cells.The company wound up suing the workers union for damages due to lost prodcution from the strike and damage to equipment due to the shutdown.It took 12 years for the Quebec Superior Court to make a decision.The article tells about the statistical methods and expert statistical witnesses that played a role in the case.
    6. William Fairley and Jeffrey Glen tell about how Brink's Inc. had employees that collected the money from the New York City parking meters were conviced of stealing some of the coins that they collected for the City.After the conviction New York sued Brinks for negigence in the suprevision of these employees.The authors relate how statistical analysis was crucial in reaching a verdict and finding the amount of the damage it lost revenue to the City.Bruce Levin provides expert comments about the paper.
    7. The authors, John Pincus and John Rolph from the Rand Corporation, were expert witnesses testifying in the defense of the State of Washington with regard to the amount of educational funding given to the school districts by the state.The analysis leading to the authors' testimony was a study of the relationship between the amount of money the school districts spend to educate their student and the performance of their students on standardized tests.Since the authors could not find a relationship they concluded that spending more money on the schools would not have a big impact on the amount or quality of the education the children receive.
    8. Martin Geisel and Jean Masson write about capital market analysis in antitrust litigation.
    9.Robert Coulam and Stephen Feinberg address the issue of the use of court-appointed expert statistical witness.After discussing rule 706 which allows a judge at his discretion to appoint a statistical expert to a case the authors study in detail a Title VII class action suit of sex discrimination in hiring, initial job placement, promotions, wages and the quality of work as compared to men in similar positions.
    10. Joseph Kadane relates his experience as an expert statistical witness in a case involving whether or not skill is involved in playing an electronic draw poker game.John Lehoczky acts as a discussant.
    11. Don Berry and Seymour Geisser discuss the use of blood testing for hereditary factors in determining the result of a paternity suit.bayes theorem and accompanying statistical assumptions along with the errors that can be made from laboratory testing can have major effects on the results.Don Ylvisaker is a discussant to the article.
    12.Dennis Gilliland and Paul Meier look into the possibility of reversing the outcome of an election by contesting the legality of some of the votes.Given the closeness of the 2000 election some 14 years after the publication of this book.The issue addressed in the possible reversal of a result when k votes are removed for legality issues.The authors base their inference on the hypergeometric probability distribution associated with with the random removal of k votes.Herbert Robbins provided his comments.

    13. Gordon Apple, Bill Hunter and Soren Bussgaard consider how scientific data comes to bear on environmental regulation. D. E. Splitstone provides commentary.

    14. In the last article Herb Solomon looks at how statistical confidence intervals get used in legal settings.

    This is a very interesting set of papers for statisticians to contemplate.There are times when we may be asked to serve as an expert witness either for the prosecution or the defense.I was once asked to provide a deposition on a class action suit regarding the relative high rate of failure for a particular pacing lead produced at Pacesetter Corporation by parent company Siemens.The issue was whether or not the company was negligent about implanting the leads based on reliability data they came back to them.The issue was really a question of when the information was available and if it was serious enough to have helped to decide to recall the product sooner.As I was the main statistician still at the company who had access to the data the prosecutors wanted to know when the information was available to upper management.Our defense lawyers prepared me well for the case and how to best offer testimony.

    Product Description

    Cicero (Marcus Tullius, 106–43 BCE), Roman lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In the fourteenth century Petrarch and other Italian humanists discovered manuscripts containing more than 900 letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man all the more striking because most were not written for publication. Six rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek.

    The Loeb Classical Library edition of Cicero is in twenty-nine volumes.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good text & commentary
    Zetzel provides us with the Latin text of a significant portion of Cicero's partially preserved dialogue on the nature and the forms of government.His (Zetzel's) commentary, by far the bulk of this book, guides any Latin reader through Cicero's text and philosophy without giving away too much in translation.The niceties of the grammar are generally overlooked for comments on Cicero's style and political ideas.This would not make an ideal textbook, but a careful instructor can find much to illustate Cicero's Stoic approach to the ideal state.

    In particular, Zetzel provides us with the Dream of Scipio- a very manageable Latin text from a student's perspective, but also loaded with pre-Christian ideas of the afterlife and the proper exercise of virtue.I ordered this book for the latter reason, but found myself drawn into reading the entire selection without regret.For that specialized audience of Latin readers who are interested in the Stoics, Cicero, and Roman political theory, this is a good bet. ...

    Product Description
    The Google Book Search Library Project, announced in December 2004, raised important questions about infringing reproduction and fair use under copyright law. Google planned to digitise, index, and display 'snippets' of print books in the collections of five major libraries without the permission of the books' copyright holders, if any. This book examines the important issues that were raised by the outcome of the Google Library Project, and analyse possible future cases which may raise similar questions about infringing reproduction and fair use. The authors also discuss hyperlinking, in-line linking, caching, framing and thumbnails and how they relate to a copyright holder's traditional rights to control reproduction, display, and distribution of protected works. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access. ... Read more
