Misunderstandings and jargon prevent many from seriously considering a career as a barrister in the belief that such a career is not for them or that they are not for it. Others know that they might want to become barristers but not how to go about it, or just want to know more about this somewhat mysterious profession. This book, written by two barristers, clearly but informally explains the traditions, terminology and institutions of the Bar, and what it is actually like to be a barrister. With this aim, several barristers practising in different fields describe in detail a typical week in their life. Advice is then given on how to be accepted into, fund and survive the various academic and other stages that precede qualification as a barrister, including work experience, Bar School and pupillage (the barrister's apprenticeship). It explains how to transfer to the Bar, for the benefit of solicitors, overseas lawyers or those in a non-legal career. This third edition is fully updated to take account of the most recent changes to the Bar, training for it, and the process of recruitment to it.

Mediation Ethics is a groundbreaking text that offers conflict resolution professionals a much-needed resource for traversing the often disorienting landscape of ethical decision making. Edited by mediation expert Ellen Waldman, the book is filled with illustrative case studies and authoritative commentaries by mediation specialists that offer insight for handling ethical challenges with clarity and deliberateness. Waldman begins with an introductory discussion on mediation's underlying values, its regulatory codes, and emerging models of practice. Subsequent chapters treat ethical dilemmas known to vex even the most experienced practitioner: power imbalance, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, attorney misconduct, cross-cultural conflict, and more. In each chapter, Waldman analyzes the competing values at stake and introduces a challenging case, which is followed by commentaries by leading mediation scholars who discuss how they would handle the case and why. Waldman concludes each chapter with a synthesis that interprets the commentators' points of agreement and explains how different operating premises lead to different visions of what an ethical mediator should do in a given case setting. Evaluative, facilitative, narrative, and transformative mediators are all represented. Together, the commentaries showcase the vast diversity that characterizes the field today and reveal the link between mediator philosophy, method, and process of ethical deliberation.

The role of the law in settling family disputes has been a matter of particular debate over the past twenty-five years. In keeping with the general public perception, the media has been largely critical about the role of lawyers in family law matters, sustaining a general lack of confidence in the legal profession, and a more specific feeling that in family matters lawyers aggravate conflict or even represent a female conspiracy. The climate in which family lawyers practise in England and Wales is therefore a harsh one. The authors of this path-breaking study felt it was time to find out more about the contribution of barristers in family law cases. They therefore embarked on a careful study of the Family Law Bar, its characteristics, what its members do, and how their activities contribute to the management or resolution of family disputes. Much of the study is comprised of an in-depth examination of the day-to-day activity of members of the family law bar through observation of individual barristers as they performed their role in the context of a court hearing, In attempting to answer questions such as whether our family justice system is excessively adversarial, or whether family barristers earn too much from human unhappiness, or indeed whether those working in the front line of child protection earn enough, the authors reach some surprising conclusions.'The barrister is both mentor and guide for the client' is how they begin their conclusion; 'we hope that we have shown that society should value their contribution better' is how they finish.

English summary: The most common or typical business enterprise in contemporary society is not the single-company organization but the complex corporate group. One of the fundamental problems caused by corporate group activities is the question of inter-corporate liability towards the external creditors of companies within the group, since the potential for abusive or unfair practices that could have a negative effect on the interests of the external creditors of the group is inherent in the holding-subsidiary relationship. German description: Ein Vorteil des Zusammenschlusses in einem Konzern liegt in der Haftungsbeschrankung. Damit verbunden sind aber auch Gefahren insbesondere fur die Glaubiger einer abhangigen Gesellschaft, wenn diese fur die Interessen des Konzerns eingesetzt und dabei ausgebeutet wird. Susanne Wimmer-Leonhardt widmet sich der Frage, wie dem Schutz dieser Glaubiger Genuge getan werden kann, von verschiedenen Ausgangspunkten her. Neben den in Deutschland anzutreffenden gesetzlichen Regelungen analysiert sie vor allem die in den letzten Jahren wieder in den Vordergrund geruckten allgemeinen Haftungsinstrumente. Untersucht wird aber nicht nur die Rechtslage in Deutschland, sondern auch in England sowie die Frage, welches Recht zur Anwendung kommt, wenn Mutter- und Tochtergesellschaft verschiedenen Rechtsordnungen angehoren. Wenngleich weitgehend Einigkeit daruber herrscht, dass das Statut der Tochtergesellschaft zur Anwendung gelangt, schliesst sich doch die Frage an, wie dieses zu bestimmen ist. Der hieruber seit Jahrzehnten gefuhrte Streit hat durch die jungsten Urteile des EuGH eine Wendung erfahren und eine weitgehende Entscheidung zugunsten der Grundungstheorie herbeigefuhrt.

Götter und ihre Macken! Schluchzend sitzt Mutsumi auf der Schultoilette und weiß nicht, wie sie das Mobbing ihrer Mitschüler noch länger ertragen soll. Da fällt ihr Blick auf eine Telefonnummer an der Wand, die Hilfe verspricht. Sie wählt und plötzlich erscheint vor ihr ein Junge. Der selbsternannte, freche Gott Yato bietet seine Hilfe an, allerdings nicht ohne Hintergedanken. Denn Yato brauche Leute, die an ihn glauben, um ein echter Gott zu werden. Allerdings hat letztens seine "göttliche Waffe" gekündigt, weil sie nicht mehr mit ihm aushielt. Kann Yato überhaupt jemanden von sich überzeugen? Der Humor in Noragami ist abgefahren und die schicken Fanatsy-Elemente geben dem Manga den letzten Schliff. Man freut dich beim Lesen und wartet gespannt, was wohl als Nächstes passiert! --- Dieses spezielle E-Book-Format kann auf allen aktuelleren Tablets und Geräten mit Zoomfunktion gelesen werden.
