The Jackson ADR Handbook was created following recommendations by Lord Justice Jackson that an authoritative handbook for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) should be prepared. The first edition laid a strong foundation as an essential guide to ADR and received judicial endorsement in the Court of Appeal and the Technology and Construction Court. With the benefit of a few years hindsight on the implementation of the Jackson reforms, this new edition builds on the success of the first edition to provide an updated guide to all aspects of ADR. With a strong focus on practical guidance, this second edition maintains the concise and user-friendly format of the first. It includes an in-depth overview of the different options and principles of ADR, as well as sections on: the interplay between ADR, CPR, and litigation; negotiation; mediation; recording and enforcing settlement; and other alternative dispute resolution options, as well as giving a summary of the international perspective. Additional materials such as mediation providers, specimen documents, precedents, and practice tips are available on a companion website.

Arbitration: the solution to tackle cross-border tax disputes From the increasing integration of the world economy and the lack of rules to govern the taxation of multinational enterprises to cross-border tax disputes: arbitration is one potential solution. Arbitration is not a new development in the international tax arena, but it has not yet been widely implemented in practice. In the last few years, the concept of arbitration in tax matters was revived, mainly following the OECD/G20 BEPS Project, as well as the EU Action Plan on Corporate Taxation. Now arbitration is expected to play a more significant role and enhance the existing framework of cross-border tax dispute resolution. „OECD Arbitration in Tax Treaty Law” constitutes a comprehensive compendium on international tax arbitration and provides in-depth analysis of all relevant aspects of the topic. The introductory chapters provide background information on tax arbitration and comparisons with other areas of law. The book also takes stock of the recent developments in this area within the OECD, the EU, the UN and the United States. It addresses the main concerns that have been raised with regard to arbitration, and compares and contrasts the design of various arbitration clauses. It also considers potential future developments. This compendium on international tax arbitration shows one way how to tackle the rising tide of cross-border tax disputes.

This selection of essays, speeches and personal reflections, draws on the analysis of one of the leading lawyers of a generation.

This collection discusses some key themes of, and challenges faced during, his tenure as one of the most senior lawyers in England and Wales. Through these insightful, engaging and compelling pieces, a picture emerges of a robust system of law whose core values can be plotted back to the Magna Carta, but which is flexible enough to respond to current changes without fracturing. A truly compelling exploration of continuity and change in the law by one of its key jurists.

A Practical Approach to Effective Litigation

Author: Susan Blake

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

ISBN: 9780198715948

Category: Law

Page: 720

View: 3124

This book analyses the key skills that a lawyer needs to handle a case effectively, a topic that is not covered coherently in any other book. At a time of rapid and wide-ranging change in the delivery of legal services, the current edition involves a complete reworking of the last edition of the book to take into account the implications of the implementation of the Jackson Review, and to see effective litigation clearly in the context of concerns about funding, case management by the court, costs, and the growing use of alternative dispute resolution. The book has a strong focus on the needs of the legal practitioner, the decisions to be taken at each stage of a case, and the criteria to apply in making those decisions. This is all securely based in references to relevant Civil Procedure Rules and decided cases, with checklists and commentary to assist in the project management of a case. The book also focuses on the skills a lawyer needs to work effectively. This includes skills in dealing with a client, drafting legal documents, and presenting a case in court. Throughout the work the emphasis is on demonstrating how to use law effectively, how to develop a case, and how to present persuasive arguments. Lawyers operate in an increasingly complex environment, faced with challenges in funding a case, in managing a case to avoid sanctions, and in using complex rules to best effect. The author addresses the use of legal knowledge and skills within this rapidly changing context, bearing in mind not least that the pace of change is likely to continue with the developing use of IT, and the widening use of alternative business structures. In putting together skills and law in a fully up-to-date context, A Practical Approach to Effective Litigation brings together the sound knowledge of the law and the legal skills an experienced litigator will use to get the best results for clients in a real-world context. It will be of use to anyone in the early years of legal practice, experienced solicitors who have had limited involvement with civil litigation, and those training to be a barrister or solicitor.

R in a Nutshell

Wozu sollte man R lernen? Da gibt es viele Gründe: Weil man damit natürlich ganz andere Möglichkeiten hat als mit einer Tabellenkalkulation wie Excel, aber auch mehr Spielraum als mit gängiger Statistiksoftware wie SPSS und SAS. Anders als bei diesen Programmen hat man nämlich direkten Zugriff auf dieselbe, vollwertige Programmiersprache, mit der die fertigen Analyse- und Visualisierungsmethoden realisiert sind – so lassen sich nahtlos eigene Algorithmen integrieren und komplexe Arbeitsabläufe realisieren. Und nicht zuletzt, weil R offen gegenüber beliebigen Datenquellen ist, von der einfachen Textdatei über binäre Fremdformate bis hin zu den ganz großen relationalen Datenbanken. Zudem ist R Open Source und erobert momentan von der universitären Welt aus die professionelle Statistik. R kann viel. Und Sie können viel mit R machen – wenn Sie wissen, wie es geht. Willkommen in der R-Welt: Installieren Sie R und stöbern Sie in Ihrem gut bestückten Werkzeugkasten: Sie haben eine Konsole und eine grafische Benutzeroberfläche, unzählige vordefinierte Analyse- und Visualisierungsoperationen – und Pakete, Pakete, Pakete. Für quasi jeden statistischen Anwendungsbereich können Sie sich aus dem reichen Schatz der R-Community bedienen. Sprechen Sie R! Sie müssen Syntax und Grammatik von R nicht lernen – wie im Auslandsurlaub kommen Sie auch hier gut mit ein paar aufgeschnappten Brocken aus. Aber es lohnt sich: Wenn Sie wissen, was es mit R-Objekten auf sich hat, wie Sie eigene Funktionen schreiben und Ihre eigenen Pakete schnüren, sind Sie bei der Analyse Ihrer Daten noch flexibler und effektiver. Datenanalyse und Statistik in der Praxis: Anhand unzähliger Beispiele aus Medizin, Wirtschaft, Sport und Bioinformatik lernen Sie, wie Sie Daten aufbereiten, mithilfe der Grafikfunktionen des lattice-Pakets darstellen, statistische Tests durchführen und Modelle anpassen. Danach werden Ihnen Ihre Daten nichts mehr verheimlichen.

Erfolgreich verhandeln mit Gefühl und Verstand

Author: Roger Fisher,Daniel Shapiro

Publisher: Campus Verlag

Category: Business & Economics

Verhandeln? Bitte mit Gefühl! Noch immer herrscht der weitverbreitete Irrglaube, Verhandlungen müssten möglichst rational geführt, Emotionen weitestgehend ausgeklammert werden. Roger Fisher (Mitautor des Bestsellers "Das Harvard-Konzept") und Daniel Shapiro (Autor von "Verhandeln. Die neue Erfolgsmethode aus Harvard") zeigen, dass diese Herangehensweise nicht nur impraktikabel, sondern auch wenig Erfolg versprechend ist. Denn der Mensch ist ein emotionales Wesen und egal ob Freude, Wut oder Angst: Gefühle sind fester Bestandteil unseres Denkens und Handelns, die auch in sachlichen Verhandlungen nicht abgeschaltet werden können. Fisher und Shapiro zeigen, dass sich Emotionen sogar positiv auf das Verhandlungsergebnis auswirken: Wer die Bedeutung und Anzeichen der wichtigsten emotionalen Grundbedürfnisse erkennt, kann sie gezielt aktivieren und ansprechen und dadurch den Verhandlungsverlauf positiv beeinflussen.
