Regulation of Cryptotransactions

Regulation of Cryptotransactions

Author: Carol Goforth Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/03/2020

The materials in this book are designed to look at cryptoassets and the expanding world of cryptotransactions to examine how the regulatory regime surrounding these interests is developing. Because the regulatory reaction to crypto is still in the early stages, it is not really possible to create a traditional casebook that focuses only on settled judicial opinions to illustrate relevant legal issues and rules. These materials therefore look at various statutes, rules, and regulatory structures that predate the advent of crypto along with mission and informational statements promulgated by the agencies most closely involved with regulation of cryptotransactions.

Prospectus Regulation and Prospectus Liability

Prospectus Regulation and Prospectus Liability

This new work provides integrated analysis of and guidance on the Prospectus Regulation 2017, civil liability for a misleading prospectus, and securities litigation in a European context. The prospectus rules are one of the cornerstones of the EU Capital Markets Union and analysis of this aspect of harmonisation, the areas not covered by the rules, and the impact of Brexit, provides valuable reference for all advising and researching this field. The first Part serves as an introduction to the volume with relevant context. Part II discusses the subjects of Prospectus Regulation from both a legal and economic perspective. Each chapter within Part II focuses on a key subject of the new Prospectus Regulation, providing an in-depth analysis of each issue. Part III of the work explains the domestic law on liability for a misleading prospectus, this issue being omitted from the Regulation. The law and practice in each of the key capital markets centres in Europe is analysed, with the UK chapter covering the issues and possible solutions under Brexit. There is full consideration of conflicts of laws issues with reference to the Brussels I regulation, and the Rome I and II Regulations. The influence of the EU Prospectus rules on private law is also addressed.

Law and Economics Positive, Normative and Behavioral Perspectives

Law and Economics Positive, Normative and Behavioral Perspectives

Author: Thomas Cotter, Jeffrey Harrison Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/03/2020

This casebook examines the application of economic reasoning to law, including the underlying assumptions of the economic approach. It begins by describing the basic tools of economic analysis, including the Coase Theorem. It provides a critical examination of the strengths and limitations of economic analysis as applied to contracts, torts, criminal law, antitrust, and intellectual property. The goal is to enable students to understand how economics can illuminate the behavioral assumptions and trade-offs implicit in many legal doctrines, how it may assist in improving the law, and how the economic approach compares with social justice and other perspectives.

The Role of the Judge in International Trade Regulation Experience and Lessons for the WTO

The Role of the Judge in International Trade Regulation Experience and Lessons for the WTO

Author: Thomas Cottier Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2020

The WTO is generally seen as a key actor of globalization and, as such, has been the point of convergence of popular irritation worldwide. Many of the reproaches addressed to the WTO show civil societys concern with what is perceived as a democratic deficit in the way the organization operates. The main fear is to see trade rise as the ultimate value, prevailing over concerns such as health and environment. The Role of the Judge offers insight into how disputes are solved at the WTO level, into how the judicial branch interacts with the rest of the organization, and into the degree of sensitivity of the system to external input. The book sheds light on the judicial system governing the WTO and shows it to be the only truly multilateral system where disputes are solved by third-party adjudication. The book develops along three lines: the first a search for cases submitted to the WTO where the judge exceeded its authority; the second a comparison of the WTO with the operations of national judicial systems having different levels of integration, specifically the United States (federal level) and the EC (quasi-federal level); and the third an exploration of directions for the future of dispute settlement in the WTO. Reflecting the diversity of its contributors, this book addresses questions of economics, political science, and law, bringing an unusual level of multidisciplinarity to this topic and context. It is designed for both academic readers and practitioners, who will find it full of practical insights as well as rich and detailed analysis. Thomas Cottier is Professor of European and International Economic Law, University of Bern, and Managing Director, World Trade Institute, University of Bern. Petros C. Mavroidis is Professor of Law, University of Neuchatel. He formerly worked in the Legal Affairs Division of the World Trade Organization. Patrick Blatter is Mavroidiss scientific collaborator.

Business Fundamentals Essential Concepts All Lawyers Need to Know

Business Fundamentals Essential Concepts All Lawyers Need to Know

Author: Dwight Drake Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/02/2020

This short book is designed to enhance the business training of law students. It focuses on select foundational topics that often fall outside the scope of a traditional business organizations course. The premise of the book is that these topics can enrich such a course by expanding its relevance, broadening the business literacy of students, and complementing the entity and doctrinal concepts covered in the course. Care has been taken to be concise, avoid nonessential complexities, use illustrative examples, and incorporate problems that test student comprehension. The emphasis is on real-world relevance and promoting awareness and a basic understanding in six areas: important business differences, classifications and characterizations; core accounting concepts and financial statement basics; key quantitative concepts often associated with financial literacy; business funding challenges; rudimentary tax concepts of business entities; and 16 important business factors presented in a choice-of-entity planning context. The book includes 18 mini-case-study problems that enable students to analyze and apply the substance of what they are reading to specific fact situations.
