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 (by a barrister who was formerly a university law lecturer) 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). Space is also given to how to transfer to the Bar after another legal or non-legal career.Adam Kramer regularly provides updates to this book, which can be seen

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.

Nach zwanzig Jahren Ungewissheit kommt endlich ein Brief: Alice will ihre Familie wiedersehen. Überglücklich schließen sie die verloren Geglaubte in ihre Arme. Aber bald fallen Clare seltsame Dinge auf: Wieso trifft Alice heimlich Clares Chef? Was sucht sie nachts im Atelier von Clares Mann? Niemand nimmt ihre Bedenken ernst. Sie entdeckt, dass Alice ihre Kleider trägt – doch Alice behauptet, sie sei paranoid. Wer lügt, und wer sagt die Wahrheit? Eine von beiden spielt ein böses Spiel. Und jeder muss selbst entscheiden, wem er glaubt.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe: Der Großkophta. Ein Lustspiel in fünf Aufzügen Goethe sieht in der französischen Revolution eine Folge des leichtfertig dekadenten Betragens der korrupten Oberschicht. Die Auflösung des feudalen Ständesystems an sich ist ihm keine Herzensangelegenheit. Vor dem Hintergrund der sogenannten Halsbandaffäre, die 1785/86 am Hofe Marie Antoinettes peinliche Verstrickungen des Hochadels in Betrügereien um ein sündhaft teures Halsband aufdeckte, inszeniert Goethe 1792 ein Lustspiel um schmierigen Betrug unter Domherr, Graf, Ritter, Marquis und Marquise. Freilich ohne die historischen Namen zu nennen. Erstdruck in: Neue Schriften, Berlin (Unger) 1792. Neuausgabe mit einer Biographie des Autors. Herausgegeben von Karl-Maria Guth. Berlin 2018. Textgrundlage ist die Ausgabe: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: Berliner Ausgabe. Herausgegeben von Siegfried Seidel: Poetische Werke [Band 1–16]; Kunsttheoretische Schriften und Übersetzungen [Band 17–22], Berlin: Aufbau, 1960 ff. Die Paginierung obiger Ausgabe wird in dieser Neuausgabe als Marginalie zeilengenau mitgeführt. Umschlaggestaltung von Thomas Schultz-Overhage unter Verwendung des Bildes: Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Marie Antoinette, 1786. Gesetzt aus der Minion Pro, 11 pt.
