Apportionment in Private Law

Apportionment in Private Law

Author: Professor Kit Barker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/02/2021

This collection of essays investigates the way in which modern private law apportions responsibility between multiple parties who are (or may be) responsible for the same legal event. It examines both doctrines and principles that share responsibility between plaintiffs and defendants, on the one hand, and between multiple defendants, on the other. The doctrines examined include those 'originating' doctrines which operate to create shared liabilities in the first place (such as vicarious and accessorial liability); and, more centrally, those doctrines that operate to distribute the liabilities and responsibilities so created. These include the doctrine of contributory (comparative) negligence, joint and several (solidary) liability, contribution, reimbursement, and 'proportionate' liability, as well as defences and principles of equitable 'allowance' that permit both losses and gains to be shared between parties to civil proceedings. The work also considers the principles which apportion liability between multiple defendants and insurers in cases in which the cause, or timing, of a particular loss is hard to determine. The contributions to this volume offer important perspectives on the law in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, as well as a number of civilian jurisdictions. They explicate the main rules and trends and offer critical insights on the growth and distribution of shared responsibilities from a number of different perspectives - historical, comparative, empirical, doctrinal and philosophical.

Commercial Agents and the Law

Commercial Agents and the Law

Author: Severine Saintier, Jeremy Scholes Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2021

Commercial Agents and the Law is a practical approach to the law relating to commercial agency agreements and a complete guide to the workings of the relationship between commercial agents and their principal within its domestic and European context. Both common law and agency regulations apply to commercial agency agreements, but neither provides a comprehensive set of rules. Commercial Agents and the Law explains, in a critical manner, how the two sets of rules work together in order to give practitioners a complete overview of the rules regulating commercial agency agreements. The authors examine in depth who commercial agents are and exactly what they do, and the rules pertaining to commercial agency agreements at every important stage of the relationship: from formation, through the life of the agreement to termination and post-termination. The relationship between commercial agents and principal is then placed in the wider context to consider competition implications as well as the valuation of businesses - new to this second edition is a chapter on how to value a commercial agent's business. A comprehensive and highly practical guide to the law surrounding commercial agents, this book will be an essential reference tool for practitioners dealing with commercial agent contracts and disputes, as well as commercial agents themselves. It will also be of great interest to academics and students of commercial law.

From Contract to Status

From Contract to Status

Author: Danielle Kie Hart Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2021

Our system of contract law depends for its legitimacy on the idea that contract law only concerns private agreements between private parties and nothing else. As such, conventional wisdom holds that contract law is a private law subject, not a public law subject. This book challenges that view. It makes the case that contract law is, in fact, a matter of public law. It makes two central arguments. First, contract law is public law because the role of the State in the field of public law is neither neutral nor minimal. Second, contract law is public law because, as a direct result of the way contract law operates in practice, it helps to create and perpetuate inequality in society. The book therefore argues that because contract law is actually public law, it must be analysed in terms of equality, not individualism and autonomy. Only in so doing can contract law be reimagined in ways that not only reflect reality but also help us to live up to our own aspirations individually and collectively. This work helps us to rethink the nature of contract law and to redraw the map of law more generally.

Mapping Contracts

Mapping Contracts

Author: Suzanne Darrow-Kleinhaus, Sidney Kwestel Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/12/2020

Mapping Contracts combines the substance of the doctrinal law with the process for learning it. It does this by providing the frameworks essential to legal analysis and connecting those frameworks to the cases from which they come. Mapping Contracts is keyed to the Farnsworth Contracts casebook and maps the cases in that book by following its organization. Mapping provides a unique study and learning aid: Case summaries provide the relevant facts, holding, and reasoning for every case in the casebook. The learning process is made visible by showing how the rules from cases are synthesized to build a conceptual framework for each legal principle. The Framework for Analysis sections provide a blueprint for students to follow in preparing course outlines.
