Description : Written by an award-winning professor with over 25 years of experience, this book explains comprehensively the different facets of law teaching from the law teacher’s perspective. It uniquely covers numerous topics which have been ignored by the legal education literature so far, but which are of immense importance for the success of law students, law schools and—last but not least—the day-to-day work of law teachers themselves. These topics include the goals of law teaching, the factors that lead to successful law teaching, special characteristics of good law teachers, different ways of preparing for in-class success, face-to-face versus online teaching, the in-class teaching experience, assessments, teaching evaluations, the design of new courses and programmes, the teacher–student and the teacher–teacher relationship, the importance of teaching administration as well as the future of law teaching in the digital age. The author approaches various themes from the viewpoint of his own experience. He tells his very personal stories of classroom success and failure, of enthusiasm, fun and disappointments when dealing with law students, of accomplishments and frustrations when considering learning outcomes and of surprises when dealing with red tape. He thus allows the readership to grasp different aspects of law teaching in a very hands-own way and facilitates the understanding of the underlying often rather complex human-to-human relationships. This book should be in the bookshelf of any law teacher. As it covers a wide spectrum of so far unexplored legal education issues, it is also an invaluable source at the start of a law teaching career, but also for established law teachers who wish to reflect on their own teaching approaches. A rich body of cross-references to the existing literature makes the book a powerful tool for research on any aspect of legal education. Last but not least, the author’s ironic sense of himself and of the law teacher profession makes the book a very entertaining read for anybody who always wanted to know what law teaching really is (and is not) about.

Description : The Oxford Handbook of Transnational Law offers a unique and unparalleled treatment and presentation in the field of Transnational Law that has become one of the most intriguing and innovative developments in legal doctrine, scholarship, theory, and practice today. This in itself constitutes an ambitious editorial project, not only within law and legal doctrine, but also with regard to an increasing interest in an interdisciplinary engagement of law with social sciences - including sociology, anthropology, political science, geography, and political theory. Closely tied into the substantive transformation that many legal fields are undergoing is the observation that many of these developments are driven by changes in an increasingly global legal practice today. The concept then, of 'transnational law' aims at capturing the distinctly border- crossing nature even of those legal fields which had for the longest been time been seen as having merely 'domestic' relevance. This shift also requires a conscious effort among law school classroom instructors, casebook authors, and curriculum reformers to adapt their teaching content to these circumstances. As the authors of this Handbook make clear, this adaptation requires a close dialogue between a scholarly investigation into the transnational 'concept of law' and the challenges faced by practicing lawyers, be that as solicitor, in-house counsel, as judges, or as bureaucrats in a globalized regulatory and socio-economic environment. While the main thrust is on the transnationalization of legal doctrine and legal theory, with a considerable contribution from and engagement with social sciences, the Handbook features numerous reflections on the relationship between transnational law and legal practice.

Description : Key Directions in Legal Education identifies and explores key contemporary and emerging themes that are significant and heavily debated within legal education from both UK and international perspectives. It provides a rich comparative dialogue and insights into the current and future directions of legal education.

It elaborates on the continuing development of clinical legal education as a component of the law degree and the emergence and use of innovative technologies within law teaching. The approach of pairing UK and international authors to obtain comparative insights and analysis on a range of key themes is original and provides both a genuine comparative dialogue and a clear international focus.

Description : How as a society can we find ways of ensuring the people who are the most vulnerable or have little voice can avail themselves of the protection in law to improve their social, cultural, health and economic outcomes as befits civilised society? Better Law for a Better World answers this question by looking at innovative practices and developments emerging within law practice and education and shares the skills and techniques that could lead to confidence in the law and its ability to respond. Using recent research from Australia, practice initiatives and information, the book breaks down ways for law students, legal educators and law practitioners (including judicial officers, law administrators, legislators and policy makers) to enhance access to justice and improve outcomes through new approaches to lawyering. These can include: Multi-Disciplinary Practice (including health justice partnerships); integrated justice practice; restorative practice; empowerment modes (community & professional development and policy skills); client-centred approaches and collaborative interdisciplinary practice informed by practical experience. The book contains critical information on what such practice might look like and the elements that will be required in the development of the essential skills and criteria for such practice. It seeks to open up a dialogue about how we can make the law better. This includes making the community more central to the operation of the law and improving client-centred practice so that the Rule of Law can deliver on its claims to serve, protect and ensure equality before the law. It explores practical ways that emerging lawyers can be trained differently to ensure improved communication, collaboration, problem solving, partnership and interpersonal skills. The book explores the challenges of such work. It also gives suggestions on how to reduce professional barriers and variations in practice to effectively, humanely and efficiently make a difference in people’s lives. The book builds essential skills and new approaches to lawyering for law students, legal educators, new lawyers and seasoned lawyers, judicial members and law administrators to equip them to better respond to community need. It looks at the law in context by also exploring the role of the law in improving the social determinants of health and socially just outcomes.

Description : This book introduces the reader to key legal provisions and case-law related to the procedural and substantive issues that may arise in damages litigation for breach of anti-competitive agreements and abuses of a dominant position prohibitions. For the past decade, academic publications have focused on the proposal for a Directive on damages actions, then the Directive 2014/104/EU of 26 November 2014 itself, and finally the transposition texts. However, this understandable interest should not lead to overlook the fact that the Directive has been applied very little until now. This is mainly due to its application ratione temporis. In addition to the fact that Member States only transposed the Directive between the end of 2016 and 2018, Article 22 of the Directive provides that the substantive rules contained in the Directive cannot be applied to infringements subsequent to the national laws transposing them, while the procedural rules of the Directive apply to proceedings commenced on or after 26 December 2014. Thus, it is prior domestic law that continues to govern the vast majority of cases before national courts in the “Pre-Directive era.” In addition, a number of issues of the utmost importance have not been addressed by the Directive, such as questions of international jurisdiction or the quantification of “interests.” For these reasons, it seemed necessary not to limit this book to commenting on the Directive, important as it is, but to go beyond it. Directed by Rafael Amaro, this book contains the contributions from leading academics, attorneys, jurists and economists in the field of the private enforcement of competition law. It is composed of thematic chapters dealing with matters such as applicable law in international litigation, limitation, quantification of damages, from both a European Union and a national perspective, as well as national chapters presenting the state of play in several European States.

This book is divided into three parts: Part A provides an accessible explanation of AI, including diagrams, and contrasts this with the role and work of lawyers. Part B focuses on six different aspects of legal work (litigation, transactional, dispute resolution, regulation and compliance, criminal law and legal advice and strategy) where AI is making a considerable impact and looks at how this is occurring. Part C discusses how lawyers and law firms can best utilise the promise of AI, while also acknowledging its limitations.

Description : Leadership is a mindset, not a title or position. In Fundamentals of Lawyer Leadership, we explore the aspects of leadership that law students can develop and improve during their time in law school. This textbook begins with the underpinnings of leadership, what it means, and how history guides our view of it. In Part One – Leadership of Self: Growing into Leadership, the leadership journey requires a look inward to examine who you are, what type of lawyer you want to be, and how you will lead. In Part Two – Leadership with Others: Effective Group Dynamics, the book covers topics such as building and nurturing relationships, developing emotional and cultural intelligence, establishing effective teams, and inspiring others. Finally, in Part Three – Leadership within Community: Service and Impact, the book examines the role of the lawyer in society and how you can use your skills to have influence even when you are not in charge. Contributing your energy to worthy causes about which you are passionate will bring purpose and satisfaction to your life. Just as developing legal skills is a life-long endeavor, growing as a leader is a process that evolves over a lifetime. Highlights of this new coursebook: Thorough discussion of core leadership topics as they relate to lawyers. Learning objectives and journal prompts for each topic. We believe that journaling is the most effective way to integrate leadership topics into each student’s unique leadership style. Relevant and accessible applications. Each topic has at least one interactive exercise that can be used in class to compliment the concepts covered in the text. Professionalism and ethics woven throughout this book. Students see where many principles of leadership and professionalism are grounded in the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Real world scenarios. Many of the examples and lessons come from practicing lawyers, and these perspectives give students a glimpse into the practice of law and prepares them for situations they may face. Career advancement tips. The topics covered in this leadership book not only prepare law students to be successful as a leader in the community, but also better prepare students for success in the profession, whether building their own practices or moving up the ladder in their firms/companies. Modular formating. This book was written in modules so that it can be used beyond a dedicated leadership course. Topics can be used for professional development programming or clinical training. Knowledge beyond law school. This book is excellent for organizations, firms, and companies, in module form or the whole book, to teach leadership development for practicing lawyers. Anyone teaching leadership development will find something in this book to help them. Professors and students will benefit from: A framework for teaching leadership development concepts: Leadership of Self, Leadership with Teams, and Leadership within Community. By thinking about leadership development in these three stages, students begin with a focus on identifying and understanding their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to strategically improve where beneficial. The book provides a roadmap for teaching these concepts in an easy-to-understand manner that allows for flexibility and adaptability to each professor’s vision of a leadership course for law students. Text Designed for both new and experienced professors. This book gives law professors the structure and resources to lead students through discussions of leadership topics. Many will find they are familiar with the concepts even though they did not take a similar class in law school or may not have received formal leadership training. Many examples relate to law school settings and the leadership lessons that can be learned from those experiences. Emphasis on Professional development, lawyers’ ethical obligations, and service and other themes throughout the chapters to reinforce the importance of each to a lawyer leader. Comprehensive coverage of the skills that lawyers need upon graduation and as they transition into the workplace. Discussion of the role of lawyers in society that teaches students to learn to think about the traditional role of lawyers as leaders in society and how that role has developed and changed over time. The book also discusses the need for leadership from lawyers in the future. Exploration of the potential for lawyers acting as leaders to influence others. This book explores ways to look for those opportunities and be better prepared for them. An enriching experience for students to experience significant personal growth as they discover more about who they are and which of their characteristics and traits are strengths and weaknesses in different circumstances.

Description : Uruguay faces medium- and long-term challenges associated with two global megatrends: population aging and technological change. These two megatrends have been developing for some time, but policy responses have been late or inadequate in many cases. Trying to delay them--by promoting higher fertility or enforcing restrictions on the adoption of new technologies--would probably be ineffective but also ill-advised, as these trends are generating important opportunities to increase production and welfare. The objective of this book is to identify these opportunities, as well as the challenges that population aging and technological change pose for the Uruguayan economy and to determine how they can be addressed through better-designed public policies, with a focus on the development of new skills that increase workers’ productivity.
