Few professions are free of the need to understand accounting, least of all the legal profession. Legal finance is a category all on its own, because attorneys are expected to keep trust accounts for most of their clients, deal with conveyancing and understand the issues around shared accounts, whether at corporate or domestic level.

Legal Accounting deals with the fundamentals of accounting, such as debits and credits and how income statements and balance sheets are created. The book also takes you through the transfer journal, bank reconciliations, VAT, correspondent accounts, accounting in conveyancing matters, legislation applying to attorneys’ accounting and partners’ capital accounts. Easy-to-understand examples clearly explain the principles involved.

Perspectives on the Law of Partnership in South Africa examines the most problematic issues in the law of partnership. It investigates specific issues in the area of partnership law, painting a broader picture of all the other relevant areas involved. In following a `perspectives' approach - presenting a historical and a comparative perspective - the book offers a detailed consideration of complex areas of partnership law while at the same time exploring the law in general. Topics discussed range from the history and development of partnership law to perennial classical favourites such as the leonine partnership, the triple contract and universal partnership proper, all three of which contributed to the delineation of the partnership concept. Aspects of the law in general that are discussed in detail include: Legal status and its attendant entity and aggregate theories, representation and mutual mandate, partnerships en commandite, anonymous, limited and limited liability partnerships, the removal of the limit on the number of partners, partnership sequestration, the dual priorities rule. Perspectives on the Law of Partnership in South Africa is offered as a scholarly book for the subject specialist with the expectation that it will also invigorate interest in and advance research on the law of partnership.

Executory Contracts in Insolvency Law offers a unique, comprehensive, and up-to-date transnational study of the topic, including an analysis of certain countries which have never previously been undertaken in English. Written by experts in the field, with extensive practical and theoretical knowledge of both research and professional experience, this is a groundbreaking investigation into the philosophies and rationales behind the different policy choices adopted and implemented by a range of over 30 jurisdictions across the globe. With contributions from more than 40 insolvency law experts, this book provides extensive coverage of executory contracts, encompassing both developed and developing countries, and drawing on not only so-called common and civil law systems, but also, countries with hybrid systems of law. The book explores ipso facto clauses, improvements that could be made, as well as casting light on procedural and tactical issues and considerations when attempting to address executory contracts in the different jurisdictions. Providing a globalised and comparative perspective on executory contracts in insolvency law, this book will be an invaluable tool for legal practitioners requiring a cross border perspective on the subject, as well as for academics and researchers pursuing a study of the topic. It will also benefit policy makers and institutions seeking to introduce insolvency law reforms in their home countries.

Business Transactions Law, now in its ninth edition, addresses fundamental questions about business transactions: When is a transaction recognised as binding at law? If a transaction is binding, what is its legal effect? Are there any circumstances in which a party is excused from carrying out his side of a transaction? What legal redress does a party have if his opposite number fails without excuse to do what he has promised in terms of the transaction? Apart from this redress, are there any other legal means available to a party to ensure that he receives what he has been promised by the other party? Finally, what is the position if a party, due to financial difficulties, is unable to carry out or complete his side of the transaction? The objective, as with previous editions, is to meet the needs of students and others taking their first steps in the complex field of business transactions law. The aim is also to cover a significant part of the syllabus recommended by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. New legislation and case law are included in the ninth edition. The chapters on Interpretation and Credit Agreements have been re-written and other chapters have been revised wherever necessary to reflect legislative changes or developments in the case law. The ninth edition of Business Transactions Law has approximately 200 new case summaries in total.

Law of Obligations (Paperback): Geoffrey Samuel Law of Obligations (Paperback)
Geoffrey Samuel
R999 Discovery Miles 9 990 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This comprehensive book presents the English law of contract and tort in the context of a European law of obligations. Law of Obligations provides the reader with an overview of contract and tort as well as an introduction to the law of obligations in the civil (or continental) law tradition. The book is considered an extensive introduction to the western law of obligations, but with an emphasis on English law. Arising out of the analysis of the two legal traditions, Geoffrey Samuel raises questions about the appropriateness of importing the obligations category into the common law. He also highlights what has been termed the 'harmonisation debate'; should the law of obligations be harmonised at a European - or even international level? The debate raises some fundamental issues not just about legal traditions and about the law of obligations itself, but also about comparative law theory and methodology. Designed with English law students and jurists in mind, this book will be an invaluable tool for researching contract, tort and the law of obligations. It is an original contribution not only to European private law but equally to comparative legal studies.

Regulating Financial Derivatives - Clearing and Central Counterparties (Hardcover): Alexandra G. Balmer Regulating Financial Derivatives - Clearing and Central Counterparties (Hardcover)
Alexandra G. Balmer
R2,475 Discovery Miles 24 750 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The financial crisis, which spanned 2007 and 2008, may have occurred ten years ago but the resulting regulatory implications are yet to be implemented. This book isolates the occurrences of the derivatives market, which were implied as the core accelerator and enabler of the global financial crisis. Offering a holistic approach to post-crisis derivatives regulation, this book provides insight into how new regulation has dealt with the risk that OTC derivatives pose to financial stability. It discusses the effects that post-crisis regulation has had on central counterparties and the risk associated with clearing of OTC derivatives. Alexandra G. Balmer offers a novel solution to tackle the potential negative externalities from the failure of a central counterparty and identifies potential new risks arising from post-crisis reforms. Comprehensive and astute, this book will provide legal and financial scholars, academics and lawyers with much food for thought. National supervisors and regulators will also benefit from an understanding of general market risks and factors affecting exposure to such risks.

R2,698 Discovery Miles 26 980 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The fast-growing last decade of strong economic growth of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has played a critical role in Asia-Pacific regionalism and global trade. This book explores the concept of ASEAN law under the normative framework of the new regional economic order. It examines the roadmap of the new ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint 2025 by evaluating the impact of ASEAN trade agreements on domestic legislation on professional services, financial integration, investment disputes and digital trade. More importantly, it sheds light on the legal implications of ASEAN's agreements with China and India and the potential developments of mega-regional trade agreements such as the CPTPP and the RCEP. Hence, the legal analysis and case studies in the book offer a fresh view of Asia-Pacific integration and bridge the gap between academia and practice.

R2,617 Discovery Miles 26 170 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Important new policy frameworks call on governments to ensure respect for human rights by businesses and to secure a transition to sustainable consumption. Public procurement accounts for a significant share of the global economy, and nearly 30% of government expenditure across OECD countries. But what are the obligations of the state to protect human rights when it acts as a buyer? And how can procurement be used to drive respect for human rights amongst government suppliers? This engaging book reflects on these important questions, from the dual disciplinary perspectives of public procurement and human rights. Through legal analysis and practice-focused case studies, the expert contributors interrogate the role and potential of public procurement as a driver for responsible business conduct. Highlighting the character of public procurement as an interface for multiple normative regimes and competing policies, the book advances a compelling case for a shift to a new paradigm of sustainable procurement that embraces human rights as crucial to realising international policies such as those embodied in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Topical and thought-provoking, Public Procurement and Human Rights will be an essential read for academics and students of human rights law, public procurement law, and business and human rights, as well as practitioners in public procurement and sustainability, and government officials.

R3,784 Discovery Miles 37 840 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book is a thoroughly updated and augmented second edition of Certification Marks, first published in 2002, and remains the only complete volume devoted to these increasingly significant types of trademarks. A comprehensive, wide-ranging and insightful inquiry, this new edition compares the certification and collective mark systems of the UK, EU and US, whilst also referring to other systems. In addition to the laws and policies impacting ownership and use of these marks, also addressed are their historical development, registration and protection, certifiers' liability, legal and commercial significance, and use in regulatory and technical standardization frameworks. This book is especially timely in light of the advent of the EU certification mark and the controversial EU proposals to extend the Geographical Indications system to include non-agri-food products. Key features include: * the only complete volume devoted to the law of certification and collective marks * discussion of leading cases * analysis of liability exposure of product certifiers * comparison of certification and collective mark protection of geographical indications with the EU sui generis system * examination of emergent forms of certification marks, namely ecolabels and electronic authentication marks in digital content. This book will be of primary interest to trademark practitioners who require a thorough explanation of the statutory protection, registration, and legal and commercial significance of certification and collective marks. It will also provide a helpful reference resource and a platform for further research and policy recommendations to academics in intellectual property and commercial law.

R3,506 Discovery Miles 35 060 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This detailed study presents an accessible examination of how upstream petroleum activities are regulated in developed and developing petroleum countries. It includes a particular focus on the granting of access to petroleum resources, and incorporates a thorough consideration of the concept of Lex Petrolea.

Jorge L. Contreras, Meredith Jacob
R3,190 Discovery Miles 31 900 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Patent holders are increasingly making voluntary, public commitments to limit the enforcement and other exploitation of their patents. The best-known form of patent pledge is the so-called FRAND commitment, in which a patent holder commits to license patents to manufacturers of standardized products on terms that are 'fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory.' Patent pledges have also been appearing in fields well beyond technical standard-setting, including open source software, green technology and the biosciences. This book explores the motivations, legal characteristics and policy goals of these increasingly popular private ordering tools. Jorge Contreras and Meredith Jacob bring together work by more than a dozen international experts who examine the phenomenon of patent pledges from a variety of perspectives and analytical frameworks. The book assesses patent pledges as mechanisms for facilitating platform promotion, open innovation, economic development and environmental sustainability. Legal practitioners who are involved in intellectual property licensing, litigation and business transactions will find this book a key resource, as will in-house lawyers and managers at firms engaged in technology development and standardization. It will also be a key reference for scholars in law, economics, business and political science.
