Discussion Paper on Unincorporated Associations (Paperback): Great Britain Scottish Law Commission Discussion Paper on Unincorporated Associations (Paperback)
Great Britain Scottish Law Commission
R810 Discovery Miles 8 100 Special order

This discussion paper identifies the legal issues which may affect the tens of thousands of non-profit making associations (including many charities) and clubs and suggests possible ways forward. Unincorporated associations are not recognized as legal entities separate from their members. The consequence of this is that such organizations do not have the capacity to enter into legal relationships, such as in contract or delict, or hold title to land in their own name. This can give rise to unfortunate, and perhaps unforeseen, repercussions for members. For example, it is possible under the current law that a member of an unincorporated association may, by virtue of that membership alone, find himself or herself personally liable in delict to a third party injured at an event organized by the association. It may not be readily apparent to members that, by joining a voluntary group or club, they may be exposing themselves to serious personal financial risk. The Commission seeks views on whether it would be preferable to attribute legal personality to all organizations meeting certain specified minimum criteria; to allow organizations to opt-in to such an arrangement either by registration or by statement of intent; to grant certain legal capacities to unincorporated associations without according them the status of legal persons; or to introduce a new corporate vehicle specifically designed for non-profit organizations which are not registered as charities.

Discussion Paper on Double Jeopardy (Paperback): Great Britain Scottish Law Commission Discussion Paper on Double Jeopardy (Paperback)
Great Britain Scottish Law Commission
R1,005 Discovery Miles 10 050 Special order

This discussion paper relates to the principle of double jeopardy and whether there should be exceptions to it. 'Double jeopardy' is not a technical term of Scots law, and before embarking on a discussion of the principle of double jeopardy, it is important to define, at least in outline, what the term is understood to mean. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, 'double jeopardy' means 'the placing of a person in jeopardy twice for the same offence, against which there is a common-law immunity'. It is possible to approach the question of when a person is twice placed in jeopardy in two ways. On one view, double jeopardy arises whenever there is a risk that an accused person will be subjected to more than one punishment for what is in substance the same offence. This understanding of the term has some currency in Scotland. This Discussion Paper is principally concerned with the other sense of double jeopardy, that is, with the rule or principle that a person once tried and convicted or acquitted of an offence should not be subject to further prosecution in relation to that offence. It is this to which is referred when we speak of the rule against double jeopardy. In part 2 of this Paper the principles and rationales underlying the rule against double jeopardy are considered. In Part 3, the present Scots law is examined. Part 4 contains a discussion of the international agreements relevant to double jeopardy. Part 5 introduces a number of options for reform. Part 6 considers a possible statutory restatement of the rule against double jeopardy, while Part 7 considers the case for the introduction of exceptions to that rule. Part 8 contains a list of the Commission's proposals and questions. The Appendices contain detailed discussion of the European and human rights law relevant to double jeopardy and a summary of the law of double jeopardy in a number of other jurisdictions.

Report on Unincorporated Associations (Paperback): Great Britain Scottish Law Commission Report on Unincorporated Associations (Paperback)
Great Britain Scottish Law Commission
R912 Discovery Miles 9 120 Special order

It has been estimated that there are approximately 45,000 voluntary organisations in Scotland, the majority of which are unincorporated associations. Such associations vary in size and structure and the objects and purposes range from purely charitable purposes at one end to purely member-interested purposes at the other. Within that range are a large number of associations which are not registered as charities but which are established for public benefit purposes (making up, with charities, the 'Third Sector'). Scotland shares with the other parts of the United Kingdom a law of unincorporated associations which rests upon common law and has been little developed by statute. Its most striking feature is the absence of legal personality accorded to associations and clubs which do not choose to establish themselves as companies or as some other form of incorporated body. The current law does not recognise the existence of such organisations as separate legal entities. The Commission states that the definition of unincorporated associations should be an association which should have at least two members; that its objects do not include making a profit for its members; and that it has adopted a constitutive document containing certain minimum specified provisions. Minimum provisions are: the name of the association; the purpose for which it exists; the criteria for membership; the procedure for election or appointment of those managing the association; the powers and duties of its office-bearers (if any); the rules for distribution of its assets on dissolution; and, the procedure for amendment of the constitutive document.

Gender Equality Duty - Code of Practice Scotland (Paperback): Equal Opportunities Commission Scotland Gender Equality Duty - Code of Practice Scotland (Paperback)
Equal Opportunities Commission Scotland
R749 Discovery Miles 7 490 Special order

This publication sets out the gender equality duty code of practice for public sector managers in Scotland. One of its principle aims is to help the public sector understand and address the different needs of women and men, leading to more user-friendly services, as well as making better use of the talents of both women and men in the workforce.The gender equality duty came into force in April 2007, and can be seen as the biggest change in sex equality legislation in 30 years, since the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act (ISBN PGA 1975 Chp. 65, ISBN 9780105465751) itself, and also reflects the aims of the Equal Pay Act 1970 (PGA 1970 Chp. 41, ISBN 9780105441700), along with incorporating amendments made through the Equality Act 2006 (PGA 2006 Chp. 3, ISBN 9780105403067). The introduction of the duty forms part of a radical new approach to equality in general, one that places more responsibility with service providers to think strategically about gender equality, and help make Scottish public authorities meet the duty.

Len Murray
R345 R271 Discovery Miles 2 710 Save R74 (21%) Special order

Len Murray, described by a High Court judge as the most respected pleader of his generation, practised as a solicitor in Glasgow for over 40 years. As part of a triumvirate of top lawyers based in the city during its period of renaissance, he built up one of the most respected law practices in the country. Among the benchmark cases with which Murray was involved was that of Tony Miller, one of the last people to be hanged in Scotland. Despite a desperate appeal by Murray, the 19-year-old was sent to his death on 22 December 1960. In his candid account Murray describes both the legal arguments and the personal effect the case had on him. Murray was also involved in bringing the Nazi war criminal Antanas Gecas to justice after his discovery in Edinburgh, he was the only solicitor ever to be retained by both Rangers and Celtic footballers who were accused of assaulting each other during a match at Ibrox, and he made a cheeky defence of famous Beatle Paul McCartney who was arrested on drugs charges. The Pleader recounts these and many more tales of the courts and the characters who inhabited them, whether they sat on the bench or stood in the dock. Reluctant to go public until now, Murray has always upheld the simple tenet that client confidentiality is paramount. His decision to publish his memoirs at this time reflects a feeling that he has a responsibility to new students of law and to old friends to put the record straight on many of the fascinating stories to come before the Scottish courts. From the simplest of violations to the most serious of capital crimes, he opens his amazing and hitherto secret files to the world.
