This collection is the multifaceted result of an effort to learn from those who have been educated in an American law school and who then returned to their home countries to apply the lessons of that experience in nations experiencing social, economic, governmental, and legal transition. Written by an international group of scholars and practitioners, this work provides a unique insight into the ways in which legal education impacts the legal system in the recipient’s home country, addressing such topics as efforts to influence the current style of legal education in a country and the resistance faced from entrenched senior faculty and the use of U.S. legal education methods in government and private legal practice. This book will be of significant interest not only to legal educators in the United States and internationally, and to administrators of legal education policy and reform, but also to scholars seeking a more in-depth understanding of the connections between legal education and socio-political change.

Rechtsstaatsförderung ist ein zentrales Instrument in der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit mit Schwellenländern.

21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook

Interest in economics is at an all-time high. Among the challenges facing the nation is an economy with rapidly rising unemployment, failures of major businesses and industries, and continued dependence on oil with its wildly fluctuating price. Americans are debating the proper role of the government in company bailouts, the effectiveness of tax cuts versus increased government spending to stimulate the economy, and potential effects of deflation. Economists have dealt with such questions for generations, but they have taken on new meaning and significance. Tackling these questions and encompassing analysis of traditional economic theory and topics as well as those that economists have only more recently addressed, 21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook is intended to meet the needs of several types of readers. Undergraduate students preparing for exams will find summaries of theory and models in key areas of micro and macroeconomics. Readers interested in learning about economic analysis of an issue as well students embarking on research projects will find introductions to relevant theory and empirical evidence. And economists seeking to learn about extensions of analysis into new areas or about new approaches will benefit from chapters that introduce cutting-edge topics. To make the book accessible to undergraduate students, models have been presented only in graphical format (minimal calculus) and empirical evidence has been summarized in ways that do not require much background in statistics or econometrics. It is thereby hoped that chapters will provide both crucial information and inspiration in a non-threatening, highly readable format.

This report assesses recent economic developments in central eastern Europe and the Baltic states, south-eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The key points are: progress in reform during 2003-04 was most pronounced in south-eastern Europe, elsewhere the pace of transition was uneven; the transition countries are expected to grow by 6.1 per cent in 2004, helped by a positive international trade environment; rapid credit growth is boosting domestic consumption and investment; in the infrastructure sector, many countries have found it difficult to establish independent, accountable and credible regulatory agencies; private sector participation is increasingly taking the form of concessions and management contracts rather than asset sales; local investors are becoming more important.

Crime has long been a silent partner in China's march to modernization, just as law and order has become increasingly important in legitimizing the Chinese regime. This groundbreaking volume offers the first systematic exploration of the social, economic, political, legal, and practical parameters of crime and control, locating them within a broader milieu of turbulent development and transition. A multidisciplinary group of leading scholars draw on a rich body of empirical data and rare archival research to develop a theoretical, comparative, and historical context for understanding contemporary Chinese crime, policing, and punishment. All those interested in modern and contemporary Chinese politics, law, and society, as well as in comparative criminology and law, will find this work an invaluable resource.

After a decade-long civil war, Sierra Leone witnessed an unprecedented surge in school enrollments at the primary and then the secondary levels. Committed to the Education for All objectives, the government further encouraged greater access to school. The country must now negotiate the transition from postwar recovery to regular delivery of education services. The main tasks ahead include reaching the remaining out-of-school children and improving the quality of the learning environment and, ultimately, of learning outcomes. Success will depend on the unrelenting, strong commitment of the government, the capacity of providers to effectively deliver education services, and a sustainable financial framework.

The digital transition of our economies is now entering a phase of broad and deep societal impact. While there is one overall transition, there are many different sectoral transformations, from health and legal services to tax reports and taxi rides, as well as a rising number of transversal trends and policy issues, from widespread precarious employment and privacy concerns to market monopoly and cybercrime. They all are fertile ground for researchers, as established laws and regulations, organizational structures, business models, value networks and workflow routines are contested and displaced by newer alternatives. This Research Handbook offers a rich and interdisciplinary synthesis of some of the current thinking on the digital transformations underway.

The Trial Lawyer

What it Takes to Win

"Each arena has its Michael Jordan. In the courtroom, it is David Berg. And Berg has taken this natural talent and time-honed skill to a new level as he unlocks certain secrets that have catapulted him to the top of his profession. What most have considered his "magic," he explains as common sense practice. This book should be a required text at every law school. Those in the legal profession should not just read this, they should study it. The difference it will make in case results more than pays for the book, over and over again." W. Mark Lanier, The Lanier Law Firm, Houston, TX "My father made his living as a lawyer. My elder brother used to practice his cross-examination technique on me and thus rose to be Australia's attorney-general. It might be said that I grew up with the law. But I can swear on a stack of bibles that I have never read a book about the nuts and bolts of forensic skill, about how to win cases and influence judges and juries, as expert, perceptive, precise and, often, as outright funny as David Berg's. I hope that I never need the professional services to which his book is a guide, but if I do I pray my defender will have read and memorized every last word of it." Robert Hughes, Author of the Fatal Shore Former art critic of Time magazine "I think of David as a people's trial lawyer in the Clarence Darrow tradition. He has tried almost every type of case from murder to patent infringement. He has an ability to persuade jurors that is the equal of any practitioner I know. The Trial Lawyer shows how it can be done." Morris Dees, Southern Poverty Law Center, Montgomery, AL "I wrote this book out of the fear that the great war stories of the next generation of trial lawyers would begin, `And then, I looked that mediator in the eyes and I said'...
