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: 03/12/2019

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.

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: 07/10/2019

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.

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

Author: Stefan Smid, Susanne Riedemann Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/08/2019

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

Vereinbarungen Contra Bonos Mores in Der Kanonistik

Vereinbarungen Contra Bonos Mores in Der Kanonistik

Author: Sarah Maria Pintaric Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/08/2019

Die Autorin schliesst eine Lucke in der Dogmengeschichte des Rechtsgedankens der Nichtigkeit sittenwidriger Vereinbarungen. Sie weist nach, dass die Kanonistik des Hochmittelalters im Zusammenhang mit der Entwicklung des Grundsatzes pacta sunt servanda eigene, neue inhaltliche Kriterien fur die Zulassigkeit von Vereinbarungen einfuhrte und spater einen theologisch begrundeten Begriff der boni mores schuf. Dieser wich von dem roemisch-rechtlichen Begriff der guten Sitten in der Legistik ab. Der Rechtsgedanke der Begrenzung der Vertragsfreiheit durch die guten Sitten als allgemeines und moralisches Kriterium ist heute in 138 BGB verankert. Die Untersuchung zeigt, dass er auf das naturrechtlich begrundete Verstandnis der boni mores im kirchlichen Recht des Hochmittelalters zuruckzufuhren ist.

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.

Die Entwicklung Der Zivilrechtlichen Unterbringung Volljaehriger Psychisch Kranker Vom Allgemeinen Landrecht (1794) Bis Zum Betreuungsgesetz (1992)

Die Entwicklung Der Zivilrechtlichen Unterbringung Volljaehriger Psychisch Kranker Vom Allgemeinen Landrecht (1794) Bis Zum Betreuungsgesetz (1992)

Author: Tillmann M Gimm Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/03/2019

Das Buch zeichnet die rechtshistorische Entwicklung eines der problematischsten Bereiche des heutigen Betreuungsrechts nach. In zeitlicher Hinsicht erstreckt sich die Darstellung vom Ausgang der fruhen Neuzeit (1794) uber das 20. Jahrhundert bis in die Gegenwart. Dabei liegt der Fokus zunachst auf den preussischen Regelungen des Allgemeinen Landrechts und der Vormundschaftsordnung, erweitert sich aber spater mit Geltung des Burgerlichen Gesetzbuches auch auf die ubrigen deutschen Lander. Wiederkehrende Fragestellungen, wie etwa der Stellenwert des fursorgerechtlichen Unterbringungsbegriffs, die Rolle der Gutachter im Verfahren oder aber die Abgrenzung zu anderen Formen der Unterbringung werden jeweils epochenweise beleuchtet. Daruber hinaus leistet der Autor durch die Darstellung der Behandlung psychisch kranker Menschen einen sozialgeschichtlichen Beitrag und stellt somit eine Verbindung zwischen der Disziplin des Rechts und der Sozialwissenschaft her.
