Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases

Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases

Author: Judicial College Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/11/2019

The Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases are designed to provide a clear and logical framework for the assessment of damages in personal injury cases. The first edition of this title was regarded as a landmark in personal injury practice. Each succeeding issue has built on this reputation and the book has now firmly established itself as essential reading for all those involved in the area of personal injury litigation. This new edition has been fully updated to take into account inflation since the last edition as well as reflect decisions of the higher courts on quantum. It also retains the column of figures appropriate to those few remaining claims, still coming before the courts, in which the 10% uplift in general damages recommended by Sir Rupert Jackson and endorsed by the Court of Appeal in Simmons v Castle [2012] EWCA Civ 1288 does not apply. As with previous editions, all judges involved in hearing personal injury cases will automatically receive a copy of the book.

Insolvenzverfahren Bei Massearmut Und Masseunzulanglichkeit Chancen Der Betriebsfortfuhrung. Optimierung Der Verfahrensergebnisse. Haftungsrisiken

Author: Stefan Smid, Susanne Riedemann Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/10/2019

Dieses Buch beschaftigt sich mit Insolvenzfallen, bei denen die Insolvenzmasse zu einem Zeitpunkt der Verfahrensabwicklung allenfalls die Kosten des Insolvenzverfahrens deckt. Diese Lage tritt vielfach auf und gehoert zu den Standardproblemen, mit denen sich Insolvenzverwalter und Berater auseinandersetzen mussen. Rechtsdogmatische Stimmigkeit und Praxisorientierung verbinden sich bei den vorgeschlagenen Loesungen. Bei Eintritt der Massearmut - der Massebedurftigkeit gem. 207 InsO oder der Masseunzulanglichkeit nach den 208 ff. InsO - hat die hoechstrichterliche Rechtsprechung das Verfahren von einer Notabwicklung hin zu einer besonderen Form der Insolvenzverwaltung mit dem Ziel entwickelt, dem Insolvenzverwalter eine optimale Verwertung der Masse zu ermoeglichen und dabei seine Haftungsrisiken zu verringern. Dabei stehen die Risiken im Vordergrund, die bei einer Fortfuhrung des insolvenzschuldnerischen Betriebes auftreten. Besonderes Augenmerk wird auf die Moeglichkeiten einer Verfahrensgestaltung durch Insolvenzplane nach 210a InsO gelegt. Die Massebedurftigkeit (Massearmut i.e.S.) gem. 207 InsO wird in ihren Voraussetzungen und Rechtsfolgen fur die Abwicklung des Verfahrens eingehend dargestellt und dabei insbesondere die Handlungsmoeglichkeiten des Insolvenzverwalters beleuchtet. Der Schwerpunkt der Darstellung liegt bei der Behandlung der Masseunzulanglichkeit gem. 208 ff. InsO. Aus den dabei behandelten Fragen sind hervorzuheben: Voraussetzungen der Anzeige der Masseunzulanglichkeit; Ermessen des Insolvenzverwalters bei der Wahl des Zeitpunktes der Anzeige Prozessuale Wirkungen der Anzeige auf die Rechtsdurchsetzung der Masseglaubiger Probleme einer zweiten Masseunzulanglichkeit und deren Auswirkung auf die Rechtsstellung der Neumasseglaubiger Verjahrung von Masseforderung nach Wiederherstellung der Massesuffizienz Insolvenzplane bei Masseunzulanglichkeit Fragen der Haftung des Insolvenzverwalters: Verhaltnis der Haftungstatbestande der 60 und 61 InsO

The Right to Education in India The Importance of Enforceability of a Fundamental Right

The Right to Education in India The Importance of Enforceability of a Fundamental Right

Author: Florian (Judge, Judge, State of Hessen, Germany) Matthey-Prakash Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/09/2019

What does it mean for education to be a fundamental right, and how may children benefit from it? Surprisingly, even when the right to education was added to the Indian Constitution as Article 21A, this question received barely any attention. This book identifies justiciability (or, more broadly, enforceability) as the most important feature of Article 21A, meaning that children and their parents must be provided with means to effectively claim their right from the state. Otherwise, it would remain a right only on paper. The book highlights how lack of access to the Indian judiciary means that the constitutional promise of justiciability is unfulfilled, particularly so because the poor, who cannot afford quality private education for their children, must be the main beneficiaries of the right. It then deals with possible alternative means the state may provide for the poor to claim the benefits under Article 21A, and identifies the grievance redress mechanism created by the Right to Education Act as a potential system of enforcement. Even though this system is found to be deficient, the book concludes with an optimistic outlook, hoping that rights advocates may, in the future, focus on improving such mechanisms for legal empowerment.

Pleadings Without Tears A Guide to Legal Drafting Under the Civil Procedure Rules

Pleadings Without Tears A Guide to Legal Drafting Under the Civil Procedure Rules

Author: Roger Eastman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/08/2019

Pleadings Without Tears has become established as one of the most successful books on practical legal drafting in the context of litigation. This new ninth edition is fully updated to take account of all Civil Procedure Rule (CPR) changes since the last edition. The book takes a practical and insightful look at the subject of legal drafting, enabling the reader to become confident in approaching this often unnecessarily daunting subject. It focuses on core skills and fundamental rules while clearly addressing each stage of the process, and goes beyond a straightforward setting out of the precedents and authorities relevant to statements of case. Giving clear examples of how to set out relevant matters with clarity and precision, this book encourages the reader to give full consideration to concise and clear identification of the subject matter of the action, the issues of the case, and the parties' respective positions in respect to those issues. With a wealth of practical examples and anecdotes - and illustrated throughout with cartoons - the light and entertaining style, combined with detailed analysis and explanation, enables the reader to easily acquire a thorough understanding of drafting.

Civil Law Reforms in Post-Colonial Asia Beyond Western Capitalism

Civil Law Reforms in Post-Colonial Asia Beyond Western Capitalism

Author: Yuka Kaneko Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/03/2019

This book focuses on the legal systems of the late-developing countries of ASEAN (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam, often referred to as the CLMV countries). These nations are apt to be placed in an economically disadvantageous situation within the opportunity of communalization of legal systems being advanced by the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) launched in 2015, and the book clarifies the dynamics of the changes within these legal systems. Concurrently, there is an intention to analyze the legal system development support that has continued to be provided to these countries since the mid-1990s via international development support from international organizations and developed countries including Japan. In particular, the emphasis has been on the area of civil law, where the main subject of Japan's support has been centered on the civil code and civil procedure code. The legal system of the recipient country is complicated by the crisscrossing of the remnants of previous eras, from the inherent laws that have existed since before colonization, the laws of the colonial powers that were introduced during the colonial era (French law in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam; English law in Myanmar), the influence of socialist law after independence from colonization, and the path of modern industrialization and development, such that one country's legal system is the combination of all of these influences. For the reader to understand the dynamics of these changing laws, each chapter of the book combines two methodological perspectives. The first is to ascertain the spatial range as to how far the civil law extends across social phenomena. The second is a historical perspective in which the trends in legal changes will be understood on a time axis.
