Judicial Review Handbook

Writing in the fifth edition of this Handbook, author Michael Fordham described his ambition when writing the first edition (and indeed all subsequent editions) of this book as "to read as many judicial review cases as I could and to try to extract, classify and present illustrations and statements of principle". Behind this aim lay the practitioner's overwhelming need to know and understand the case-law. Without it, as Fordham says "much can be achieved in public law through instinct, experience and familiarity with general principles which are broad, flexible and designed to accord with common sense". But with knowledge of the case law comes the vital ability to be able to point to and rely on an authoritative statement of principle and working illustration. Knowing the case-law is crucial: "the challenge is to find it". This, the sixth edition of the Handbook, continues the tradition established by earlier editions, in rendering the voluminous case-law accessible and knowable. This Handbook remains an indispensable source of reference and a guide to the case-law in judicial review. Established as an essential part of the library of any practitioner engaged in public law cases, the Judicial Review Handbook offers unrivalled coverage of administrative law, including, but not confined to, the work of the Administrative Court and its procedures. Once again completely revised and up-dated, the sixth edition approximates to a restatement of the law of judicial review, organised around 63 legal principles, each supported by a comprehensive presentation of the sources and an unequalled selection of reported case quotations. It also includes essential procedural rules, forms and guidance issued by the Administrative Court. As in the previous edition, both the Civil Procedure Rules and Human Rights Act 1998 feature prominently as major influences on the shaping of the case-law. Their impact, and the plethora of cases which explore their meaning and application, were fully analysed and evaluated in the previous edition, but this time around their importance has grown exponentially and is reflected in even greater attention being given to their respective roles. Attention is also given to another new development - the coming into existence of the Supreme Court. Here Michael Fordham casts an experienced eye over the Court's work in the area of judicial review, and assesses the early signs from a Court that is expected to be one of the key influences in the development of judicial review in the modern era. The author, a leading member of the English public law bar, has been involved in many of the leading judicial review cases in recent years and is the founding editor of the Judicial Review journal. "...an institution for those who practise public law...it has the authority that comes from being compiled by an author of singular distinction". (Lord Woolf, from the Foreword to the Fifth Edition)

"What happens to my bitcoin, ether, or other cryptoassets when I die?" Cryptoasset Inheritance Planning: A Simple Guide for Owners by Pamela Morgan, Esq. is a clear blueprint to inheritance planning for those holding cryptocurrency, tokens, crypto-collectibles, and other cryptoassets. Since 2015, Pamela has educated thousands of cryptocurrency owners around the world about why inheritance planning for cryptoassets matters and how to do it in a secure, usable, resilient, and efficient manner. In this book, Pamela walks you through her successful step-by-step inheritance planning processes. These processes are designed to help you build a customized crypotasset inheritance access plan - and you don't need to be a security expert or lawyer to do it. Inside you'll also find helpful tools like checklists, templates, and worksheets to make building your plan simple and easy. Topics include: * how to write a basic access plan in two to three hours * how to assess your risks and make your plan better * debunking common myths and misconceptions about cryptoasset inheritance planning * what laws you need to know about and why * how to interview, hire, and fire a lawyer and how to keep costs down * why smart contracts don't apply to inheritance today, but will someday * and so much more By the time you complete the book, your plans should: (1) allow your heirs to take possession of your cryptoassets when the time comes, but not before, (2) minimize the opportunity for others to steal cryptoassets from your loved ones, (3) provide an opportunity for your loved ones to hold the assets securely, instead of liquidating, (4) prevent fighting amongst your heirs and avoid legal problems whenever possible. Buy this book, follow the processes, and you'll be able to confidently answer the question, "What happens to my bitcoin, ether, or other cryptoassets when I die?" F.A.Q. Who is this book written for? If you own any cryptocurrency or cryptoasset tokens, this book is for you. If you use an exchange to buy and sell cryptoassets, this book is for you. If you've ever asked the question, "What will happen to my bitcoin, ether, or other cryptoassets when I die?" this book is for you. If you want someone, anyone, to inherit your cryptoassets when you die, this book is for you. Do I need to be an attorney or security expert to use this book? No. This book isn't written specifically for lawyers, security experts, or cryptographers, though they may benefit from the material. I don't live in the USA, is this book still relevant to my inheritance planning? The entire book, with the exception of the Making it Legal, is applicable to any cryptoasset owner in any jurisdiction. The Making it Legal section cites some USA law but the principles are broadly applicable around the world. Will this book teach me about specific cryptoasset laws in my jurisdiction? No. A book like that is called a legal treatise; they're heady and dense, even for lawyers. Instead, this book focuses on practical information you need know, like what happens to your assets if you don't have a will and why you shouldn't put your cryptographic keys in your will. You'll learn about high-level legal concepts that might affect your assets, how to find out more information about the laws in your jurisdiction, and how to keep legal costs down. The unique challenges with cryptoasset inheritance planning are not primarily legal - they're primarily technical. With this book, you'll learn how to create a cryptoasset access plan for your heirs. Your access plan aims to answer the question, "From a practical perspective, how will my loved ones access my cryptoassets when I'm not around to help them?"

Three authors with decades of experience have teamed up to provide an up-to-date, state-of-the art field guide to the emerging movement of regional currencies. People Money describes a global movement of people creating their own currencies to support regional business and strengthen their communities. These currencies operate legally alongside Bank Money and Government Money, giving people new choices in an age of transition from outworn financial structures to an era of sustainable abundance. Part One explains the characteristics and purpose of the various models of commercial- and community-oriented currencies, the administration and governance of the currencies, how to cooperate with other financial institutions, clearing systems and the issue of taxation. Part Two focuses on the 'how to' of developing a regional currency, outlining the key principles and design processes, and the benefits that have accrued as a result of their implementation. Finally, the book profiles and interviews some of the leading organisers of regional currencies around the world, explaining their driving passion and the nuances of each of the models - how the currency started, how it developed, the difficulties encountered on the journey, and how these were overcome. The currencies profiles include: Brixton Pound in London; The Business Exchange in Scotland; Blaengarw Time Centre in South Wales; Community Exchange System in South Africa; Chiemgauer in Germany; BerkShares, Equal Dollars, Ithaca HOURS and Dane County Time Bank in the USA; and many others.
