Product Description
Customer Reviews
In this book Judge Posner focuses on the problems of the pro ses, the people, often prisoners, who bring lawsuits without a lawyer and the staff attorneys who review these lawsuits and make recommendations to the judges on how to decide the cases. He has done extensive research into the procedures of all thirteen circuits and compares their performance. This is the most extensive comparative review of the staff attorney programs in the circuit courts that has ever been done. Judge Posner has many suggestions for improving the way these cases are handled.<br />In addition, he discusses the need for televising the circuit court hearings. He is a believer in government transparency, and feels the public should have easy access to the workings of the courts.<br /><br />Finally, he reviews the duties of the circuit chief judge and recommends clarification of the position.

<P>Collaborative practice is a new method of dispute resolution, used mainly in family law matters. By taking a non-adversarial approach, it challenges the strictly positivist view of the lawyer as ‘zealous advocate’ for the client. As such, it has received much criticism from the established Bar and legal profession.</P><br /><P>?</P><br /><P>This book provides a doctrinal and empirical analysis of collaborative practice with a view to assessing its place within the dispute resolution continuum and addressing whether this criticism has been justified. It begins by establishing the theoretical underpinnings of conflict and differing approaches to conflict resolution, the impact of the comprehensive law movement and therapeutic jurisprudence. The origins and development of the collaborative process and the framework it provides for a multidisciplinary approach to conflict resolution is outlined. The book addresses the examination of the process undertaken in the lead up to the enactment of the Uniform Collaborative Law Act in 2010; now regarded as a model of best practice. Finally, through an examination of empirical research undertaken in the US, Canada and in England and Wales, and in presenting the results of the first known empirical research into the process in an Irish family law context, the book concludes with an evidenced based analysis of the process from the perspective of couples who chose to use the collaborative model to resolve the issues surrounding their relationship breakdown, collaborative lawyers and lawyers who do not advocate a non-adversarial approach. </P><br /><P>?</P><br /><P>As such this book provides a valuable insight into the process which will be of interest to: academics; practising lawyers; members of the judiciary; researchers in the fields of conflict resolution and family law and for students studying alternative dispute resolution (ADR).</P>

<P>Techniques in the investigative interviewing and interrogation of victims, witnesses and suspects of crime vary around the world, according to a country’s individual legal system, religion and culture. Whereas some countries have developed certain interview protocols for witnesses (such as the ABE Guidelines and the NICHD protocol when interviewing children) and the PEACE model of interviewing suspects, other countries continue to use physical coercion and other questionable tactics to elicit information. </P><br /><P>Until now, there has been very little empirical information about the overall interview and interrogation practices in non-western countries, especially the Middle and Far East. This book addresses this gap, bringing together international experts from over 25 countries and providing in-depth coverage of the various interview and interrogation techniques used across the globe. Volume 1 focuses on the interviewing of victims and witnesses, aiming to provide the necessary information for an understanding of how law enforcement agencies around the world gain valuable information from victims and witnesses in criminal cases. Together, the chapters that make up this volume and the accompanying volume on interviewing suspects, draw on specific national case studies and practices, examine contemporary challenges and identify best practice to enable readers to develop an international, as well as a comparative, perspective of developments worldwide in this important area of criminal investigation.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>This book will be an essential resource for academics and students engaged in the study of policing, criminal investigation, forensic psychology and criminal law. It will also be of great interest to practitioners, legal professionals and policymakers around the world.</P>

The planet stood astounded in 1991 when renowned computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee proved that the world could be brought together with the World Wide Web. Little did he know that his invention would become one of the basic amenities in every household just a few years later. <br /><br />Today, the access given to us by the internet is so expansive that we can do anything from ordering a meal to attending classes and obtaining a degree, by the simple click of a button; and its payments, of course! However, what may have slipped your mind is the Internet’s effect on the legal platform. Protracted legal processes and the need for parties to be physically present in court has proved to be a bane to all litigants. Therefore, the Dubai Courts recently dipped its feet in the internet pool by permitting parties to register cases online without the mandate of being present at court. What may be concluded by the beginning of this swim is that the positive reach of the internet has made its way to the legal profession by eliminating the hassle that parties endure in a lawsuit. Is it too far a stretch to hope that in a few years we might not have to get out of our houses for anything other than to pay the internet bill?<br />In this issue of Court Uncourt, our attorneys will discuss a motley of topics ranging from the legalities involved in this recent innovation by the Dubai Courts to the ambit of the new real estate law that is set to elevate the Indian real estate industry to international standards. We welcome you at the gates of this electronic age and thank you once again.<br /><br />Welcome back and happy reading!
