View: 2437Caribbean Business Law breaks away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency. It provides a broad overview of the foundation of various legal systems and goes on to examine the various areas of legal liability that may impact on business activities. These areas include tort law,criminal law, internet law and payment in business transactions. Specifically, the book targets the development of business law in several Commonwealth jurisdictions, including Canada and Australia, but with special focus on legal developments in Commonwealth Caribbean countries. The approach of the book is to present excerpts from judgments, so as to enable students to understand legal principles as espoused by the judiciary without the filtering bias of authors. This new title is essential reading for students taking LLB and Business Degree courses in the Caribbean and other Commonwealth jurisdictions.

View: 4469Now in its third edition, Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law continues to break away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency. Taking a panoramic view, it explores the foundation of various legal systems before examining areas of legal liability that affect business activities. These include areas such as contract law, tort law, criminal law, agency and internet law which present significant challenges confronting the business sector. The book primarily targets the development of business law principles in several Caribbean Commonwealth jurisdictions but, where appropriate, also embraces the jurisprudence of other Commonwealth nations, such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. It also explores the United States as a non-Commonwealth jurisdiction, given the increasing importance in the Caribbean of judicial pronouncements relating to internet law from this territory. Using excerpts from key judgments, the book allows students, particularly those with a non-legal background, to understand key legal principles for business as presented by the judiciary and draws parallels between legal theory and business practice.

View: 1587This is the first textbook to deal with criminal practice and procedure as it relates to the Caribbean. The text clarifies the state law in each jurisdiction, making it clear when laws are the same or similar and statutory law in the Caribbean is compared to English Law throughout. Statute law and common law are examined in the relevant jurisdictions including Trinidad, Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Although the laws of each jurisdiction have many things in common, Seetahal makes it clear when differences in laws between the jurisdictions apply. The impact of statutory changes are also analyzed alongside recent developments. Revised throughout, this new edition addresses the recent changes in law in St Lucia and the Bahamas bringing this popular text right up-to-date. Although written for law students, as the only book which deals specifically with criminal practice and procedure in the Caribbean, it is also a useful reference tool for criminal justice professionals.

View: 674This text is designed to give law students in the Caribbean a basic text on torts, accompanied by extracts from West Indian cases and the most important statutory provisions. Emphasis is placed on those topics most commonly litigated in the West Indies - negligence, nuisance, defamation, trespass to the person, employers' liability and passing off. Although primarily conceived as a text for students reading for the LLB degree in the West Indies, practitioners should find the book useful in the way in which it brings to light many hitherto unreported judgements.

View: 4435"This new edition to the series will provide an up-to-date textbook covering a wide-range of employment and labour law issues which affect the Commonwealth Caribbean. Initially the book will embark on a comparative analysis of employment and labour law in Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados, as a reference point for distinguishing the laws of other Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions. The book will continue to examine how the law operates within the legal systems of the Caribbean, taking into account the umbilical link to British jurisprudence and the persuasive precedent of other Commonwealth jurisdictions, and the impact this has had on the growth and development of the area. Commonwealth Caribbean Employment and Labour Law will be essential reading for students enrolled on Employment Law, Discrimination and Dismissal Law courses in the Caribbean"--

View: 5449Die drei Bücher des Traktats (Über den Verstand; Über die Affekte; Über Moral), 1739 bzw. 1740 anonym publiziert, fielen "als Totgeburt aus der Presse" (so Hume über die Nichtbeachtung seines Erstlings durch die Zeitgenossen). Heute gilt das Jugendwerk, da es im Kern bereits die ganze Philosophie des kritischen Empirikers enthält, als Humes theoretisches Hauptwerk. Humes Wissenschaft von der menschlichen Natur vollzieht sich in einer doppelten Bewegung: sie zerstört der Intention nach die traditionelle Metaphysik und etabliert deren ihr selbst verborgene Wahrheit in einer neuartigen Geisteswissenschaft oder Anthropologie, der "science of man".

View: 6195The increasing threat of pollution of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico necessitates the adoption of coping measures in the wider Caribbean. In the context of examining the internal workings of UNEP's environmental programme in the region, the Law of Caribbean Marine Pollution provides a lucid account of measures adopted to date and those that remain urgently needed, with a view toward referencing the laws of all of the countries of the wider Caribbean. Written by a law lecturer at the University of the West Indies, this book clearly sets out the legal framework governing the measures needed to address the kinds of pollution problems that may threaten sustainable development in the Caribbean. It looks at prevention per se, responsibilities and rights during pollution emergencies, and law governing liability and compensation, all from a global, regional, and national perspective. It is therefore an unmatched resource for Caribbean policy makers, providers of institutional support, Caribbean environmental law students and practitioners, and all those interested in evaluating regional solutions to developmental problems.
