Disciplinary and Regulatory Proceedings is the leading work on this important and dynamic area of law, written by leading practitioners in the field with considerable experience of tribunals both as chairmen and lawyers. The authors maintain a companion website dedicated to regulatory law and will post updates to the book and articles on to the site as developments occur.The book provides an authoritative examination of the general principles that apply to all regulatory and disciplinary tribunals, including coverage of the basis of the tribunal's authority and extent of its jurisdiction, natural justice, human rights, grounds for disciplinary action, investigations, the decision to prosecute, hearings, evidence, appeals, and enforcement. It goes on to examine the specific working of three major professional areas: healthcare, the FSA and legal services.In addition to this core commentary, guidance on the practical application of the general principles is provided, looking in detail at such issues as the retrospective effect of rule changes, malicious falsehood, data protection and freedom of information, whistle-blowing, and guidance on defending a claim or how to avoid or defuse a claim. The disciplinary arrangements of the most prominent regulators are described in outline in a separate section.

Judicial decisions never occur in a vacuum û they are influenced by a myriad of political factors. From lawyers and interest groups, to the shifting sentiments of public opinion, to the ideological and behavioral inclinations of the justices, Epstein and Walker show how all these dynamics play an integral part in the overall development of constitutional doctrine. Drawing deeply from the spheres of political science and legal studies, the exceperted case material is skillfully analyzed and presented for todayÆs students. Known for fastidious revising and streamlining, the authors account for the latest scholarship in the field and offer rock-solid analysis of recent landmark cases, including as all the important opinions handed down through 2011. Building on the successes of the 7th edition, the bookÆs clean layout and design clearly distinguishes between commentary and opinion excerpts. Not only does the design make the book an easier read for students, it effectively showcases photos, justice biographies, and the ôAftermathö and ôGlobal Perspectiveö sidebars. And based on positive user feedback, the authors have added even more Aftermath boxes in this new edition. New cases in the 8th edition: Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (2012) Snyder v. Phelps (2011) Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association (2011) United States v. Jones (2012) Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission

»Quell der Einsamkeit« erzählt die Geschichte von Stephen Gordon, einer Frau aus der britischen Oberschicht, die eigentlich ein Sohn hätte werden sollen. Von Kind an hat Stephen das Gefühl, dass mit ihr etwas nicht stimmt - dass sie anders ist: Sie trägt gern Männerkleidung, begeistert sich für Fuchsjagd und Fechtkunst und verliebt sich von früher Jugend an in Frauen - zunächst in das Hausmädchen Collins, später in die mondäne Angela Crossby, deren eifersüchtigen Ehemann Stephen durch ihre Bewunderung seiner Rosenzucht zu beschwichtigen sucht. Als Krankenwagenfahrerin im Ersten Weltkrieg lernt Stephen schließlich Mary Llewellyn kennen und lieben. Die beiden Frauen gehen in den zwanziger Jahren nach Paris, schaffen sich zusammen ein Heim und schließen Freundschaften, doch ihr gemeinsames Glück ist massivem gesellschaftlichen Druck ausgesetzt ... »Quell der Einsamkeit« ist ein bis heute faszinierender historischer Roman und kann als ein Vorläufer von Leslie Feinbergs »Stone Butch Blues« gelten. Er löste Debatten über Sexualität, Homosexualität und Geschlechterrollen aus, die noch immer andauern.

The Ethics and Conduct of Lawyers in England and Wales

The second edition of this path-breaking text successfully maps the complex regulatory environment in which the legal profession in England and Wales now operates. It opens with a critical overview of professional ideals, organisation, power and culture and an examination of the mechanisms of professions, exercised through governance, regulation, discipline and education. The core of the book explores the conflict between duties owed to clients (diligence and confidentiality) and wider duties (to the profession, third parties and society). The final part applies lawyers' ethics to dispute settlement (litigation, negotiation, advocacy and alternative dispute settlement). The second edition incorporates the considerable changes to the law, codes and the policies of government occurring since the first edition. Once again, the authors seek the guiding principles against which the suitability and efficacy of long-standing principles should be judged, asking whether the professions are suitably regulated in an era of sustained and continuous change.From the reviews of the First Edition:'The publication of this book should put to rest any future controversy about whether legal ethics is a deserving topic of academic research and whether it should be taught in law faculties. The answer that Boon and Levin give is a resounding and uncompromising YES...The Ethics and Conduct of Lawyers in England and Wales is a book that should take pride of place on the bookshelves of any self-respecting lawyer or academic...quite simply an exemplary and superior piece of legal scholarship that merits attention by anyone who is interested in the workings of the legal profession and the development of law which of course, should mean everyone.Allan C Hutchinson, Journal of Law and Society'...the most scholarly and detailed of its kind'.Michael Beloff QC, Times Higher Education Supplement'A significant book that meets a current need in those law schools which have already accepted that the ethics and conduct of lawyers in England and Wales quite properly has a place in Legal Education.'Richard Tur, The Law Quarterly Review

„Ein Mythenerzähler für dieses Jahrtausend." NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW Was als wilde, sich überschlagende Jagd endet, beginnt ganz einfach: mit einem Brief, in dem das Foto eines Schafes steckt. Er ist adressiert an einen müden Endzwanziger, der als Mitinhaber einer Tokyoter Werbeagentur in einem Nebel aus Zigaretten und Alkohol lebt: Nur ein Abenteuer kann einen Ausweg aus seiner Langeweile bieten – die „Wilde Schafsjagd" beginnt. Haruki Murakamis meisterhafter Bestseller um ein Schaf mit übernatürlichen Kräften, ein Teilzeit-Callgirl mit den schönsten Ohren der Welt und einen Kriegsverbrecher mit Gehirntumor ist ein fantastischer Detektivroman, inspiriert von den düsteren Werken Raymond Chandlers – nur dass dieser Fall unlösbar ist. Der Geschichtenzauberer Murakami entführt in eine Welt voll bizarrer Geheimnisse, in der Realität und Fantasie zu einem virtuosen Abenteuer verschmelzen.
