Foreign Investment Law including Investor-State Arbitrations in a Nutshell

Ralph H. Folsom

Home country investors merge or acquire existing businesses or establish new companies in host countries. Investors purchase stocks and bonds on foreign exchanges, and sometimes foreign sovereign debt. The number of transactions and sums involved are staggering. Unlike international trade law governed significantly by the World Trade Organization, no uniform body of foreign investment law exists. Hence foreign investment law is predominantly national, occasionally regional, in character. There are many intriguing variations on foreign investment law around the world.Foreign Investment Law including Investor-State Arbitrations in a Nutshell, 3d reviews the law, practice, regulation and dispute settlement of foreign investment. Following the Nutshell tradition, citations are minimized creating a book that reads easily. Students, academics, lawyers, government officials and people in business will find it useful.This Nutshell introduces foreign investment entry and operational control patterns, investment-related technology transfers, and expropriation issues. It also explores the multitude of bilateral investment treaties (BITs). Investment regimes under free trade agreements (FTAs) are considered, with special attention to the dynamic rules of NAFTA 1994 and its USMCA 2020 successor. Controversial foreign investor-host state arbitration awards and systems are closely examined. Investing in China, Europe and North America are presented as "case studies".

Social Science in Law

John Monahan

This title offers an engaging and comprehensive overview of how American courts use research and testimony from the social sciences in reaching their decisions. It is organized around Daubert v. Merrill Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the United States Supreme Court's landmark decision on scientific evidence, and the series of recent cases beginning with Roper v. Simmons in which the Court explicitly relied on social science evidence to transform the process of criminal sentencing. The tenth edition offers a completely revised and up-to-date treatment of the increasingly critical role social science research plays in both federal and state judicial opinions.

Contracts Simulations

Michael P. Malloy

This book brings contract law to life through contemporary problems to help students build a skill set they can use in practice. In the real world of practice, abstract contract principles are applied to specific factual settings. Facts don't arrive pre-digested and regurgitated for baby birds or law associates. This book pickpockets life for real-world documents and contemporary situations, like the pandemic, to help students learn how contract law works in practice. Each chapter provides concise discussion of a specific topic or issue in contract law and a realistic, documented problem that provides a base for students and enough material for traditional Socratic method teaching. Imperfect but real contracts will give students the chance to see how client counseling, fact-gathering and careful crafting of contract language can help clients avoid disputes. Stories from art, sports and Internet games make the contract concepts vivid and memorable to facilitate student engagement and productive classroom discussion.

Cases and Materials on State and Local Government Law

Richard Briffault

Like its predecessors, the 9th Edition focuses on the critical roles played by states and local governments and the complex structure of our state-local system. It challenges students to understand the values that inform the distribution of powers between states and local governments; the distinctive structures and organization of states and local governments; and the competing models of local government that frame the field. It then takes on local government formation and boundary change; home rule and state-local disputes; interlocal conflict and regional governance; state and local finance; and the local role in delivering government services. This Edition contains new treatments of state constitutions and city charters, state-local preemption conflicts, state and local taxation, policing, and more pervasive attention to the interplay of state and local government law with racial justice and social and economic equity.

Contemporary Criminal Law

Mark Osler

The Second Edition of Contemporary Criminal Law presents a clean new approach to teaching criminal law to first year students. A consistent emphasis on the elements of crime centers the book on what matters most, and compelling exercises are rooted in the discretion of prosecutors and judges. Using only opinions from federal courts in the modern era, the book presents a coherence that is missing from texts rooted in a hodge-podge of time frames and jurisdictions. Narcotics, firearm crimes, and immigration all are addressed in complete chapters, reflecting the real-life world of criminal law as it now exists. This second edition includes 23 new cases and commentary aimed at sharpening this focus.

Social Security Law in a Nutshell

Frank S. Bloch

This book is intended to provide a broad overview of Social Security law and practice. It covers the two main titles of the Social Security Act: Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), with a special focus on the disability provisions of both programs. It begins with an introductory chapter that places current Social Security law and practice in its historical context, including a brief discussion of the circumstances surrounding the passage of the Act in 1935, the major amendments to the Act since 1935, and key Supreme Court decisions that have impacted the coverage and administration of OASDI and SSI. The remaining chapters can be grouped into three parts: chapters 2, 3, and 4 describe the central eligibility requirements for benefits under both programs; chapters 5 and 6 delve more deeply into the requirements for disability benefits; and chapters 7, 8, and 9 focus on the administration of the programs, including the roles of lawyers and other claimant representatives, administrators and administrative judges, and federal courts.

Gilbert Law Summary on Legal Ethics

Thomas D. Morgan

This Gilbert Law Summary is designed to serve three groups. The first is law students taking their required course in Professional Responsibility or preparing for the bar-required Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam. Second are persons considering a legal education who want to appreciate what it means to have a law license, what issues lawyers face, and how the law requires lawyers to deal with those issues. Third are lawyers who want a handy place to turn when they face a question in practice and need help finding quick answers and relevant authority to go deeper. Using the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct, and the ALI Restatement (Third): The Law Governing Lawyers as key authorities, the author puts what otherwise could be abstract rules into context in order to illuminate what led to adoption of each rule, why the rules require what they do, and where changes in lawyer regulation may be coming. Substantive issues covered include how a lawyer and a client form their relationship, what fiduciary duties are and which ones a lawyer owes to his or her clients, how a lawyer markets and gets paid for his or her services, and various ways both confidentiality obligations and conflicts of interest can arise. In addition, the author calls attention to a lawyer's obligations to a client's opponents, courts and other tribunals, and the broader public interest, as well as a final chapter on the special responsibilities of judges.
