"As the pace of legislative change at all levels continues to accelerate, it becomes increasingly difficult for practitioners to know how to follow and apply, and sometimes influence or challenge, the legislation that is relevant to their clients in every area of the law. A highly practical resource, Craies provides clear and concise answers to the most common questions users of legislation have. It aims to be an essential everyday guide covering primary legislation, subordinate legislation and devolved legislation, as well as EU legislation. Craies is relied upon by practitioners in all fields, and is regularly cited in the higher courts." --Publisher's website.

L'objectif de la présente étude est de décrire et analyser les rapports entre le panafricanisme et le droit international à travers les différentes étapes de l'évolution du mouvement panafricaniste. Le panafricanisme offre un point de vue privilégié permettant de rendre compte de l?évolution des rapports entre l'Afrique et le droit international. Le panafricanisme est passé d'un mouvement de la diaspora constitué d'individus et d'associations engagés dans le combat pour l'émancipation des peuples africains, à des regroupements d'Etats indépendants et d'organisations intergouvernementales.

If laws and rights were to be understood cumulatively, as anamount of quantitative data, branches and specialties, we wouldnot have understood it properly. The understanding of law thatthe legal theory provides, is not reached until the law is seen asa complex whole, avoiding any kind of arbitrary simplifications.This comprehension of the law accepts it as plural and diverse, while unitary and organic. However, these plurality and diversitycan only be adequately appreciated in its true measure from itsunity and socio-historical organization.-- Provided by Publisher.

"L'histoire de la justice a été profondément renouvelée au cours des dernières décennies, parallèlement à la place nouvelle acquise par les juges dans la société comme dans leurs rapports avec le pouvoir politique. Ce livre en propose une synthèse en mettant l'accent sur l'évolution des institutions juridictionnelles, de la magistrature et de la façon dont celle-ci régule les conflits civils et réprime les infractions pénales. Il met en lumière la succession de trois modèles de justice. La révolution de 1789 institue une justice libérale et démocratique fondée sur la souveraineté nationale, les citoyens étant étroitement associés à son exercice. Ce modèle libéral fait place, à partir du Consulat, à celui d'une justice étatisée, contrôlée par le pouvoir politique, exécutif dans les périodes autoritaires, parlementaire sous les régimes républicains. Le mouvement d'émancipation des juges, amorcé dans les années 1970, conduit à s'interroger depuis sur l'existence d'un nouveau modèle : au sein d'un État de droit, la justice aurait acquis sinon une place dominante, du moins plus d'indépendance."--Page 4 of cover.
