"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.

  • Introduction
  • Shareholder wealth maximisation revisited
  • Shareholder power and shareholder empowerment
  • Shareholder rights and corporate objectives in China : past and present
  • Towards stakeholder model
  • A more suitable corporate objective in China
  • Conclusion.
Corporate objective, namely, for whose interests should a company be run, is the most important theoretical and practical issues confronting us today, as the core objective animate or should animate every decision a company makes. Despite decades of debate, there is no consensus regarding what the corporate objective is or ought to be. However, clarity on this issue is necessary in order to explain and guide corporate behaviour, as different objectives could lead to different analyses and solutions to the same corporate governance problem. In addition to the study on the corporate objective in the Anglo-American jurisdictions, the discussion of this topic in the context of China is also very important on the ground that China has become the second largest economy in the world and is playing an increasingly significant role in global affairs. Though a socialist state, China also heavily relies on the corporate vehicle as the most important business organisation to ensure its rapid economic development since its market reforms in 1978. Adolf Berle and Gardiner Means's observation eight decades ago that large public companies dominate the world remains true today, not only in the West but also in China. The regulation and governance of such companies will have a material impact on the further development of the Chinese economy, which could in turn directly affect the world economy. Company law and corporate governance therefore receive much attention and have become a vital issue in China. Although the current focus is primarily on corporate performance, the fundamental question at the heart of corporate governance, namely the corporate objective, is still unresolved. Contrary to the widely held belief that the corporate objective should be maximising shareholder wealth, this book seeks to demonstrate that the shareholder wealth maximisation approach is both descriptively and normatively unsuitable. As an antithesis to it, stakeholder theory generally develops to be a more suitable substituent. Justifications and responses to its main criticisms are offered from descriptive, normative and instrumental aspects, whilst new techniques of balancing competing interests and more workable guidance for directors' behaviour are brought forward as essential modifications. Along with the unique characteristics of socialist states, the stakeholder model is expected to find solid ground in China and guide the future development of corporate governance. This book will be important and useful to researches and students of corporate law, corporate governance, business and management studies.

Upon declaring independence from Britain in July 1776, the United States Congress urgently needed to establish its credentials as a legitimate government that could credibly challenge the claims of the British Crown. In large measure this legitimacy rested upon setting in place the procedural and legal structures upon which all claims of governmental authority rest. In this book, Aschenbrenner explores the ways in which the nascent United States rapidly built up a system of parliamentary procedure that borrowed heavily from the British government it sought to replace. In particular, he looks at how, over the course of twenty-five years, Thomas Jefferson drew upon the writings of the Chief Clerk of the British Parliament, John Hatsell, to frame and codify American parliamentary procedures. Published in 1801, Jefferson's Manual of Parliamentary Practice for the Use of the Senate of the United States presents rules, instances, citations and commentary as modern readers would expect them to appear, quoting Hatsell and other British authorities numerous times. If the two nations suffered any unpleasant relations in the First War for American Independence - Aschenbrenner concludes - one would be hard pressed to detect it from Jefferson's Manual. Indeed, direct comparison of the House of Commons and the Continental Congress shows remarkable similarities between the ambitions of the two institutions as they both struggled to adapt their political processes to meet the changing national and international circumstances of the late-eighteenth century.

Towns are complicated places. It is therefore not surprising that from the beginnings of urban development, towns and town life have been regulated. Whether the basis of regulation was imposed or agreed, ultimately it was necessary to have a law-based system to ensure that disagreements could be arbitrated upon and rules obeyed. The literature on urban regulation is dispersed about a large number of academic specialisms. However, for the most part, the interest in urban regulation is peripheral to some other core study and, consequently, there are few texts which bring these detailed studies together. This book provides perspectives across the period between the high medieval and the end of the nineteenth century, and across a geographical breadth of European countries from Scandinavia to the southern fringes of the Mediterranean and from Turkey to Portugal. It also looks at the way in which urban regulation was transferred and adapted to the colonial empires of two of those nations.

"Technical standards are ubiquitous in the modern networked economy. They allow products made and sold by different vendors to interoperate with little to no consumer effort and enable new market entrants to innovate on top of established technology platforms. This groundbreaking volume, edited by Jorge L. Contreras, assesses and analyzes the legal aspects of technical standards and standardization. Bringing together more than thirty leading international scholars, advocates, and policymakers, it focuses on two of the most contentious and critical areas pertaining to standards today in key jurisdictions around the world: antitrust/competition law and patent law. (A subsequent volume will focus on international trade, copyright, and administrative law.) This comprehensive, detailed examination sheds new light on the standards that shape the global technology marketplace and will serve as an indispensable tool for scholars, practitioners, judges, and policymakers everywhere"-- Provided by publisher.

This work provides an analytical and comparative analysis of the development of charity law, as well as providing a critical commentary on a number of contemporary changes within the charity law field across a range of common law jurisdictions. The book follows earlier studies which cover a similar, and traditional, jurisdictional spread, but which are now dated, and further considers in detail charity law issues within Hong Kong and Singapore, about which there has been, historically, more limited charity law discussions. The area is growing in terms of practical legal and academic interest.

14. Climate change law [2018]

ix, 287 pages ; 25 cm.
  • Introduction
  • Climate science and economics
  • The international climate change regime
  • Putting a price on carbon
  • Tools for reducing emissions : energy regulation
  • Federal climate regulation
  • Federalism and climate change
  • Climate impacts and adaptation
  • Geoengineering.
Over the past thirty years, a body of law dealing with the issue of climate change has taken form. This rapidly emerging body of law runs the gamut from state and local regulations to federal policies and international agreements and includes both public and private sector involvement.Climate Change Law is based on the view that this issue is just too important to leave to specialists alone. It is the first book to offer a concise, readable treatment of this entire body of law. The focus is on core concepts of climate change law, rather than all of the complex details. The book begins by discussing the scientific and policy issues that frame the legal scheme, including the state of climate science, the meaning of the social cost of carbon, and the variety of tools that are available to reduce carbon emissions. It then covers in turn the international, national, and state efforts in this sphere. Finally, the book turns to the challenge of adapting to climate change, before exploring the concept of geoengineering and the potential challenges associated with using geoengineering as a tool for addressing climate change. The book is designed to be accessible to a broad range of readers, not just those who have backgrounds in climate science, environmental economics, or law.

In 'The Codification of Islamic Criminal Law in the Sudan', Olaf Köndgen offers an in-depth analysis of the Sudan's Islamized penal codes of 1983 and 1991, their historical, political, and juridical context, their interpretation in the case law of the Supreme Court, and their practical application. He examines issues that arise in sharia criminal law, including homicide, bodily harm, unlawful sexual intercourse (zina, liwat), rape, unfounded accusation of unlawful sexual intercourse (qadhf), highway robbery (hiraba), apostasy (ridda), and alcohol consumption. 0Drawing on a wide range of primary and secondary sources, a large number of previously untapped Supreme Court cases, and interviews with judges and politicians, Köndgen convincingly explains the multiple contradictions and often surprising aspects of one of the Arab world's longest lasting applications of codified sharia criminal law.0.

  • The roots of chartered rights of local authorities
  • The origins of the charter within the Council of Europe
  • The normative guidance along and beyond Council of Europe borders
  • International treaty law
  • The charter's guarantees as general principles of EU law?
  • Rank of the charter under domestic law of Council of Europe member states
  • The charter's concept of local self-government
  • Institutional design of local self-government.
In 'Constitutional Principles of Local Self-Government in Europe' Giovanni Boggero offers a meticulous account of the defining features of European constitutional local government law using both an international and comparative law perspective. The book argues that differences between local government systems in Europe, typical examples of internal affairs of a State, can be smoothed away by construing a consistent system of constitutional principles to be coherently applied at domestic level across the whole European legal space. This system can be best grasped by looking at the European Charter of Local Self-Government, which embodies a concept of self-government rooted in common legal traditions, and at its subsequent practice within the Council of Europe.
