"Since the release of the first edition published in 2013, cybersecurity breaches in law firms have made news headlines and clients are asking questions about lawyers' and firms' security programs. From the massive Panama Papers breach that led to the dissolution of the Mossack Fonseca Law Firm in April 2016 to the WannaCry and Petya Ransomware attacks, the latter that led to the several day work outage at DLA Piper in June 2017, it is imperative that attorneys understand the potential risk of weak information security practices to their practices and their clients. As hackers increase their capability to conduct cyber attacks, so must law firms step up their risk management game specifically in cybersecurity as a fundamental part of their sustainable business practices. [This book] focuses on many of the issues raised in the first edition, while highlighting the extensive changes in the current cybersecurity environment...[and] includes a chapter on technology basics for the technologically challenged. This updated edition will enable [the reader] to identify potential cybersecurity risks and prepare [them] to respond in the event of an attack. It addresses the current overarching threat as well as ethical issues and special considerations for law firms of all sizes. The handbook also includes the most recent ABA Ethics Opinions and illustrates how [the reader] should approach the subject of cybersecurity threats and issues with clients as well as when and how to purchase and use cyber insurance."-- Publisher's website.

"Beginning on the 5th of June and ending six days later, the 1967 war was brief. During these few days, Israel gained control over the West Bank of the Jordan River, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights. Within pre-1967 Israel, East Jerusalem (located in the West Bank) has been subsumed into Jerusalem. Jewish settlements began to be built in the OPT already in 1967. Half a century later, there are approximately 2.7 million Palestinians and over 586,000 Israelis living in the West Bank including East Jerusalem. Most Palestinians and Israelis know no other reality. Law has played a significant role in the making and maintaining of this reality. This role is the focus of The ABC of the OPT"-- Provided by publisher.

  • In defense of abortion rights / Kate Greasley
  • Abortion as human rights violation / Christopher Kaczor

  • A reply to "In defense of abortion rights" / Christopher Kaczor
  • A short reply to the reply / Kate Greasley
  • A short reply to Greasley / Christopher Kaczor.
This book features opening arguments followed by two rounds of reply between two moral philosophers on opposing sides of the abortion debate. In the opening essays, Kate Greasley and Christopher Kaczor lay out what they take to be the best case for and against abortion rights. In the ensuing dialogue, they engage with each other's arguments and each responds to criticisms fielded by the other. Their conversational argument explores such fundamental questions as: what gives a person the right to life? Is abortion bad for women? What is the difference between abortion and infanticide? Underpinned by philosophical reasoning and methodology, this book provides opposing and clearly structured perspectives on a highly emotive and controversial issue. The result gives readers a window into how moral philosophers argue about the contentious issue of abortion rights, and an in-depth analysis of the compelling arguments on both sides.

" A compelling memoir by the first woman president of a major American university Hanna Holborn Gray has lived her entire life in the world of higher education. The daughter of academics, she fled Hitler's Germany with her parents in the 1930s, emigrating to New Haven, where her father was a professor at Yale University. She has studied and taught at some of the world's most prestigious universities. She was the first woman to serve as provost of Yale. In 1978, she became the first woman president of a major research university when she was appointed to lead the University of Chicago, a position she held for fifteen years. In 1991, Gray was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in recognition of her extraordinary contributions to education. An Academic Life is a candid self-portrait by one of academia's most respected trailblazers. Gray describes what it was like to grow up as a child of refugee parents, and reflects on the changing status of women in the academic world. She discusses the migration of intellectuals from Nazi-held Europe and the transformative role these exiles played in American higher education--and how the émigré experience in America transformed their own lives and work. She sheds light on the character of university communities, how they are structured and administered, and the balance they seek between tradition and innovation, teaching and research, and undergraduate and professional learning. An Academic Life speaks to the fundamental issues of purpose, academic freedom, and governance that arise time and again in higher education and that pose sharp challenges to the independence and scholarly integrity of each new generation.

  • Introduction
  • The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1947 (GATT 1947) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) : why join the club?
  • Membership of the GATT 1947 and the WTO
  • The scope of the multilateral trading system
  • The status of protocols of accession in the legal framework of the WTO
  • Mapping exercise : methodology and typology : commitments on specific matters
  • Mapping exercise : the results
  • Concluding remarks.
This detailed and perceptive book examines the extent and scope of how rules for accession to the WTO may vary between countries, approaching the concerns that some countries enter with a better deal than others. Dylan Geraets critiques these additional `rules' and aims to answer the question of whether new Members of the WTO are under stricter rules than the original Members, whilst analysing the accession process to the multilateral trading system. Taking an integrated approach, the author combines the results of a Mapping Exercise of all 36 Protocols of accession with a legal analysis of the decisions by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body involving Protocols of Accession. In doing so, this book provides the first comprehensive analysis of the issue of Member-specific `WTO-Plus' commitments in Protocols of Accession. Whilst addressing the institutional and historical aspects of the WTO accession process, it provides a vital update to the existing scholarship on WTO accession, offering coverage of all accessions including those of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and Liberia. Accession to the World Trade Organization will be invaluable reading for academics interested in WTO accession practice, as well as lawyers, practitioners and government officials in the field of WTO accession.
