This addition to the renowned Clarendon Law Series offers a concise and stimulating introduction to company law. Professor Davies sets out the five key functions of company law: the creation of separate legal personality for the company; the conferment of limited liability on the company's shareholders; the provision of centralised management; the allocation of control rights over the company; and the creation of transferable shares. However, the purpose of company law is not simply to implement these policies as they all have costs as well as benefits. The role of the law is therefore to maximise the benefits whilst minimising the costs. The author examines these crucial policy choices within the context of the central relationships with which company law deals (or ought to deal). These are the relations between senior management and the shareholders; those between majority and minority shareholders; and those between company controllers (whether managers or shareholders) and non-shareholder stakeholders in the company. This new and comprehensive introductory volume is an essential resource for all those studying company law.

The Admiralty Jurisdiction Regulation Act 105 of 1983 was a radical and far-reaching, as well as overdue, modernisation of South African admiralty law. Described as 'bold, innovative and comprehensive', it introduced - for the first time anywhere in the world - the provisions enabling an action to be pursued by way of the arrest of an associated ship rather than the ship in respect of which the claim lay. This work, by one of South Africa's pre-eminent shipping lawyers, analyses the nature of this novel action. That involves a review of how the jurisdiction came about; its nature and impact; the problems to which it gives rise and the making of some modest suggestions concerning the road ahead.

The Conflict of Laws addresses the jurisdiction of Courts (and whether their judgments are enforced and recognised overseas) and the effect of foreign judgments in England (whether these are recognised and enforced) . It also looks at the principles of choice of law for cases with an international element for example contracts made or performed in other jurisdictions or with other parties, torts committed overseas or by foreign parties, international fraud, property sited overseas, and family and personal matters (including marriage, divorce, and financial support) across different jurisdictions.

Nachdem die 1934 erschienene Erstauflage von Hans Kelsens Reine[r] Rechtslehre im Jahre 2008 als Studienausgabe erschienen ist, folgt nun im selben Format die Studienausgabe der Zweitauflage aus dem Jahre 1960. Zwischen den Auflagen 1934 und 1960 liegt nicht nur ein Vierteljahrhundert und ein Weltkrieg, sondern auch ein Umfangswachstum auf den fünffachen Wert und ein vielfältiger Reifungsprozess von Kelsens Allgemeiner Rechtslehre. Die Zweitauflage bildet zugleich Höhepunkt und Abschluss der sog. "Klassischen Phase" im rechtstheoretischen Werk Hans Kelsens. Überhaupt darf die auf Deutsch erschienene Zweitauflage, die in mehr als ein Dutzend andere Sprachen übersetzt worden ist, als die reifste und letzte geschlossene Darstellung der Reinen Rechtslehre gelten. Gemeinsam mit H.L.A. Harts Concept of Law (1961) stellt sie das wirkmächtigste Werk des modernen rechtstheoretischen Diskurses dar.Die vorliegende Studienausgabe enthält, anders als die seit 1992 publizierten Nachdrucke, auch den für das (Selbst-)Verständnis der Reinen Rechtslehre bedeutsamen Anhang zum Problem der Gerechtigkeit. Im Anmerkungsapparat sind darüber hinaus die aus Anlass der Übersetzung der Zweitauflage ins Italienische 1966 von Kelsen vorgenommenen Korrekturen am deutschen Text erstmals berücksichtigt worden.

Of all legal subjects, international law is at once the most richly varied and arguably the least understood, even by lawyers. For the past two decades it has been the focus of intense analysis by legal philosophers, international relations specialists, linguists, professional lawyers, historians, economists, and political scientists, as well as those who study, teach, and practice the discipline. Yet, the realities of international trade and communication mean that regulations in one State often directly affect matters within others. In the established tradition of the Clarendon Law Series, International Law is both an introduction to the subject and a critical consideration of its central themes and debates. The book explores the scope and function of international law, and explains how it helps to underpin our international political and economic systems. It then goes on to examine the wider theoretical implications of international law's role in modern society, including issues such as the independence of states, limits of national freedom of choice, human rights, and international crime.

Casting the role of the courts in controlling administrative action not as that of neutral arbiter, but as that of active participant in the government decision-making process, this book considers the constitutional context of judicial review, its relationship with other mechanisms for controlling administrative activity, and its impact on the agencies subject to it. The most important rules concerning judicial review of administrative activity are clearly and concisely presented alongside a broad framework for understanding them.

Im Zentrum dieses Buches steht das Verhältnis von Recht und Moral. Der Rechtspositivismus behauptet, daß beides zu trennen sei. Sowohl der Begriff des Rechts als auch der Begriff der Rechtsgeltung seien moralfrei zu definieren. Robert Alexy versucht zu zeigen, daß diese These falsch ist. Es gibt erstens begrifflich notwendige Zusammenhänge zwischen Recht und Moral, und zweitens sprechen normative Gründe dafür, die Begriffe des Rechts und der Rechtsgeltung so zu definieren, daß sie moralische Elemente einschließen. Deshalb muß der Rechtspositivismus als umfassende Theorie des Rechts scheitern. Die Begründung seiner These erfolgt in einem begrifflichen Rahmenwerk, das aus fünf Unterscheidungen besteht. Die Untersuchung schließt mit dem Vorschlag einer Definition des Begriffs des Rechts, die die Elemente der ordnungsgemäßen Gesetztheit, der sozialen Wirksamkeit und der inhaltlichen Richtigkeit systematisch verknüpft. Da der Begriff der inhaltlichen Richtigkeit moralische Kriterien einschließt, ist dieser Begriff des Rechts ein nicht-positivistischer Rechtsbegriff.

According to democratic theory the state is for man not man for the state. This theory has been implemented by bills of rights in many national constitutions giving the individual a legal opportunity to redress abuses by his state. In Federal Consti tutions, however, difficulties have been faced when central au thority seeks to enforce the standards of the constitution against the legislation and customs of the constituent states. The latter habitually resist, proclaiming the virtues of horne rule and local self-govemment, also supported by democratic theory. Thus the opposition of man versus the state develops into a double op position of man versus the state and the state versus the super state. To what extent should the super-state take the part of man demanding respect for human rights, or of the state demand ing self-govemment, when the two conflict? The failure to solve this problem precipitated the American Civil War and continues to agitate American politics. Should the human right of equal educational opportunities prevail over the "State's Right" of autonomy in the organization of its schools? The same problem appears in more virulent form in the efforts of the United Nations to "promote respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion" without "intervening in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state.
