J. Mullins, C. da Silva
R981 R810 Discovery Miles 8 100 Save R171 (17%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Eric Morris’ Technique in Litigation has been of inestimable value to fledgling advocates and attorneys for four decades. The book is concerned with litigation in both the High Courts and the magistrates’ courts, and provides useful, practical guidance on all aspects of litigation.

The sixth edition of Technique in Litigation has been substantially revised and updated, resulting in a book that still captures Morris’ humour and timeless wisdom, while at the same time being thoroughly topical and practical for the modern lawyer seeking to become a courtroom specialist.

The book will be of value not only to young practitioners still learning the technique of litigation, but also to more experienced practitioners to verify and enhance their courtroom techniques.

The law of evidence is vital to each legal practitioner and forms part of the curriculum of every South African law qualification. It is compulsory even for some degrees not strictly confined to legal practice, such as certain police and related qualifications. However, the law of evidence is not considered an easy subject, especially not for persons who have never been inside a court of law.

In this work, academics with practical experience of the criminal justice system have selected a number of decided cases as well as statutes relevant to the law of evidence. Illuminating commentary is provided, which should assist any student of the discipline to get to the core of these texts. Due attention has also been paid to the constitutional aspects of the law of evidence.

Die bewysreg is onmisbaar vir elke regspraktisyn en maak deel uit van die leerplan van elke Suid-Afrikaanse regskwalifikasie. Dit is selfs verpligtend vir sommige grade wat niť tot die regspraktyk beperk is nie, soos sekere polisie en verbandhoudende kwalifikasies. Tog word bewysreg as ’n moeilike vak beskou, veral vir diegene wat nog nooit in ’n geregshof was nie.

In hierdie boek het akademici met praktiese ervaring van die strafregstelsel ’n aantal besliste hofsake sowel as wetgewing van toepassing op die bewysreg uitgesoek. Die insiggewende kommentaar wat voorsien word, behoort enige student van bewysreg tot die kern van die tekste te help deurdring. Behoorlike aandag word ook geskenk aan die grondwetlike aspekte van die bewysreg.

Introduction To Human Rights Law (Paperback, 2nd): Introduction To Human Rights Law (Paperback, 2nd)
R727 Discovery Miles 7 270 In stock

While a great deal has been written on the topic already, this textbook focuses on introducing human rights law in a comprehensive but easy-to-understand manner to the benefit of both lecturers and students. It is hoped that this work will assist lecturers who teach the subject at first- or second-year level, both in the LLB degree and other university programmes, as well as non-governmental organisations and others parties who train their staff or stakeholders in basic principles of the law. The book should also benefit students by covering the breadth of human rights law directly applicable to students studying law in South Africa.

The text contains a number of scenarios to help readers grasp the material being discussed by illustrating relevant constitutional principles and issues. Cases are integrated into the text in a manner that should facilitate an understanding of their application. This book contains complete court judgments, statutes, a bibliography and questions to respective chapters which will assist lecturers and students in finding their way beyond the book at whatever level they deem appropriate.

Increased international investment and accelerating economic growth in Africa in general and in Anglophone Africa mean that businesses located both within and outside these jurisdictions will increasingly demand and require advice on cross-border commercial litigation. As the scope and scale of economic activity increases, the law governing commercial litigation will have to be developed and refined to reflect Africa's importance as a commercial hub. In Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa, the authors, for the first time in a work of this nature, set out the broad framework of the private international law rules in operation in each of the sixteen Anglophone jurisdictions considered (Botswana, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe). The authors identify and clarify the law to be applied as it relates to: (i) civil jurisdiction over commercial disputes involving a foreign element; (ii) the enforcement of foreign judgments; and (iii) the availability and nature of the interim remedies, in each of the sixteen jurisdictions addressed.

Property remedies (Paperback): Z.T. Boggenpoel Property remedies (Paperback)

R600 R505 Discovery Miles 5 050 Save R95 (16%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The new constitutional order has brought about substantial changes to the application of property remedies in South African law. Property Remedies investigates the ways in which various property remedies have been developed by the courts. The book shows that the transformation of remedial possibilities needs to be informed by different contexts. The book argues that it is important to consider this jurisprudential challenge in developing property remedies that are suited to a new constitutional order based on a single system of law. Property Remedies covers the traditional common-law remedies used to protect property interests, such as the rei vindicatio, the actio negatoria, the mandament van spolie, the possessory action, the actio legis aquiliae, compensation for improvements, the prohibitory interdict and the declaratory order. The book also discusses constitutionally inspired property remedies such as compensation for expropriation, constitutional damages and non-expropriatory compensation for lawful state action. The book offers guidance on how to deal with the tension between preserving the existing common-law remedies, accommodating new statutory interventions and developing the current system of property remedies in line with the Constitution.

Class Action Litigation in South Africa is the first book to be published in South Africa dealing with this area of the law. The book collects, describes and interrogates the first-class action judgments in South Africa, aiming to go beyond the existing and ground-breaking Supreme Court of Appeal and Constitutional Court judgments on class actions, and makes practical suggestions regarding the issues that are likely to arise for practitioners, judges and academics as they encounter class actions in South Africa. Class Action Litigation in South Africa seeks to ensure a home-grown understanding of class actions for our country, but also offers the reader first-hand exposure to lessons learnt from international experts in class action litigation. The book thus embraces contributions from around the world that are wide-ranging, straddling the fields of law, economics, social justice and politics. The book presents important and useful insights into class action litigation from local and international experts. The editors and the contributors have all been involved in the leading class action cases in South Africa and abroad.

Legal language, or ‘legalese’ as it is sometimes called, is a language that many people find hard to understand. This is because some of the words and phrases that lawyers and other legal experts use do not form part of regular everyday communication. However, when these experts speak and write using unfamiliar language it is often because they have to: ‘ordinary’ language cannot properly or accurately describe the often complex concepts and issues involved.

This dictionary bridges the gap between the world of everyday language and the world of legal language. Users can access over 20 000 legal words, each of which is explained in plain English for the benefit of people without a legal background, as well as legal practitioners, law students and other members of the legal profession.

The dictionary deals with the areas of criminal law, criminal procedural law and law of evidence, and is aimed at familiarising users with the use of legal language in a number of settings, including the courtroom. A bilingual publication, this English–Afrikaans / Afrikaans–English dictionary also contains a useful list of Latin terms and phrases, together with explanatory notes, as a centre insert. Synonyms, homonyms and polysemes are identified and explained, and the dictionary provides guidance on the use of abbreviations and how to cross-reference lemmas (headwords).

This edited volume is a timely and insightful contribution to the growing discourses on public law in Asia. Surveying many important jurisdictions in Asia including mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, the book addresses recent developments and experiences in the field of public interest litigation. The book offers a comparative perspective on public law, asking crucial questions about the role of the state and how private citizens around Asia have increasingly used the forms, procedures and substance of public law to advance public and political aims. In addition to addressing specific jurisdictions in Asia, the book includes a helpful and introduction that highlights regional trends in Asia. In the jurisdictions profiled, transnational public interest litigation trends have commingled with local dynamics. This volume sheds light on how that commingling has produced both legal developments that cut across Asian jurisdictions as well as developments that are unique to each of the jurisdictions studied.
