In a very meaningful way, the health of a judicial system may be judged by the care with which its procedural rights are observed. Now, in a book that takes stock of this important element as it is currently used or abused in a number of the world's legal systems, eighteen outstanding scholars approach the subject through an analysis of the following factors: the theoretical and moral implications of procedural abuses the subjects who commit them the typologies of abusive practices the consequences of abusive practices Several authors report on practices in their own countries, revealing distinct evidence of a significant degree of lowered procedural standards in the United States, several European countries, Australia, Japan, and Latin America. General and final reports provide a comparative framework for an analytical study that will repay the study of anyone concerned with the fairness of our legal institutions.

English summary: This 'liber amicorum' for Peter Schlosser contains contributions written by internationally well-known specialists in the field of international civil procedure and arbitration. The articles concentrate on controversial issues such as transborder cooperation, international jurisdiction, enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards, especially in regard to European legislation and international conventions. They focus on very delicate subject matters such as neutrality of arbitrators, taking evidence abroad and the limits of national sovereignty. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage sind zwei wesentlichen Arbeitsgebieten des Jubilars gewidmet, dem internationalen Verfahrensrecht und der Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Aus diesen Bereichen werden aktuelle und grundsatzliche Probleme von weltweit anerkannten Spezialisten diskutiert. Im Vordergrund stehen die Probleme grenzuberschreitender Sachverhalte bei der Rechtsdurchsetzung, sei es im Bereich der staatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit, sei es in der alternativen Streitbeilegung, insbesondere der internationalen Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Die Thematik gewinnt durch die Europaische Rechtsetzungskompetenz und Gesetzgebung neben den internationalen Konventionen, insbesondere den Bemuhungen der Haager Konferenz um einheitliche Regelungen fur transnationale Probleme, neue Dimensionen. Themen wie der neue Europaische Vollstreckungstitel uber unbestrittene Forderungen, die besonderen Probleme der Brussel II a-Verordnung, der Entwurf eines Haager Ubereinkommens uber die Gerichtsstandswahl stehen neben Grundsatzfragen wie Armut der Schiedspartei, Neutralitat des Schiedsrichters, Anerkennungsproblemen bei einer Scheidung nach judischem Recht und Fragen aus dem Bereich des europaisch-amerikanischen Justizkonflikts. Die Beitrage spiegeln die internationale Diskussion in aktuellen und sensiblen Bereichen des internationalen Verfahrensrechts im weitesten Sinne.

The European Account Preservation Order (EAPO) Regulation provides a protective measure for creditors wishing to freeze the bank account of their debtor, preventing the transferral or withdrawal of funds. Courts can issue freezing measures over bank accounts located in other member states, thereby establishing a new remedy for cross-border debt recovery in Europe. This book provides a detailed article-by-article commentary of the EAPO Regulation. It describes its legislative history and structure and carries out a critical analysis of its provisions and recitals, focusing on the practical implementation of the instrument. The commentary also provides additional focus on the interplay between the EAPO Regulation and the existing EU instruments and framework, and examines specific issues that the implementation of the Regulation might raise in member states. This is an important resource tool for practitioners, legal scholars and students interested in the theoretical and practical implications of the EAPO Regulation.

In this book the interaction between the rights guaranteed in the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) and private international law has been analysed by examining the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (the Court) and selected national courts. In doing so the book focuses on the impact of the ECHR on the three main issues of private international law: jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Next to a list of cases consulted and a comprehensive bibliography, the book offers brief introductions to PIL and the ECHR for readers who are less familiar with either of the topics. This makes the book not only a valuable tool for specialists and practitioners in the fields covered, but at the same time a well-documented basis for students and starting researchers specializing in either or both directions.

This is detailed and consistent account of the whole CPR system, dealing with how the overriding objective and other principles underlying civil procedure are applied and how judicial discretion and case management powers are exercised. Complementing the Green Book and other leading civil procedure titles, it analyses reported and unreported case law drawing out the principles to the applied, advising on areas where clear precedent has not yet been established or where the authority is open to question. It applies principles and human rights considerations to guide practitioners on how judges are, or should be exercising their powers and provides arguments to use before them. Endorsed by Lord Woolf, this text is designed for efficient task-oriented access to key information.
