Broberg on the European Commission's jurisdiction to scrutinise mergers / Morten P. Broberg.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6467 .B76 2013
Publisher:


Since the EC Merger Regulation was adopted in 1989, merger control has become established as an important part of EC competition law so that today all major businesses and law firms are aware of the Commission's extensive powers in this field. Right from the beginning, the Regulation's scope has occupied a central role in many mergers taking place both inside and outside the European Community. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers provides the most thorough examination of the Commission's jurisdiction to examine mergers under the Regulation. Even though the Merger Regulation provides a detailed account of what mergers fall within the Commission's jurisdiction--and irrespective of the large number of cases that have now been decided by the Commission--the delimitation of jurisdiction continues to create significant problems. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers offers a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of all aspects of this delimitation. It provides valuable guidance to businesses, their legal advisors and competition law enforcers in the Commission as well as in the Member States. Find out more (catalog link)

Corporate Accountability in the Context of Transitional Justice explores how corporations can be held accountable for their role in past human rights violations when a country is making a transition from conflict or repression to peace and democracy. It breaks new ground in theorizing the linkages between the areas of transitional justice and corporate accountability and analyzing problems frequently arising where the two fields meet in practice, for example where the role of corporations in past human rights violations is examined by truth and reconciliation commissions or in the course of litigation.

Contract law minimalism : a formalist restatement of commercial contract law / Jonathan Morgan, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.

Location: lax
Call #: K840 .M677 2013
Publisher:


Commercial contract law is in every sense optional given the choice between legal systems and law and arbitration. Its 'doctrines' are in fact virtually all default rules. Contract Law Minimalism advances the thesis that commercial parties prefer a minimalist law that sets out to enforce what they have decided - but does nothing else. The limited capacity of the legal process is the key to this 'minimalist' stance. This book considers evidence that such minimalism is indeed what commercial parties choose to govern their transactions. Find out more (catalog link)

Fixing U.S. international taxation / Daniel N. Shaviro.

Location: lax
Call #: KF6499.I57 S53 2014
Publisher:


International tax rules, which determine how countries tax cross-border investment, are increasingly important with the rise of globalization, but the modern US rules, even more than those in most other countries, are widely recognized as dysfunctional. The existing debate over how to reform the US tax rules is stuck in a sterile dialectic, in which ostensibly the only permissible choices are worldwide or residence-based taxation of US companies with the allowance of foreigntax credits, versus outright exemption of the companies' foreign source income. In this book, Shaviro explains why neither of these solutions addresses the fundamental problem at hand, and he proposes a new reformulation of the existing framework from first principles.

Jurisdiction and arbitration agreements in international commercial law / Zheng Sophia Tang.

Location: lax
Call #: K2400 .T356 2014
Publisher:


Arbitration and jurisdiction agreements are frequently used in transnational commercial contracts to reduce risk, gain efficacy and acquire certainty and predictability. Because of the similarities between these two types of procedural autonomy agreements, they are often treated in a similar way by courts and practitioners. This book offers a comprehensive study of the prerequisites, effectiveness, and enforcement of exclusive jurisdiction and arbitration agreements in international dispute resolution. It examines whether jurisdiction and arbitration clauses have identical effects in private international law and whether they have been or should be given the same treatment by most countries in the world. By comparing the treatment of these clauses in the US, China, UK and EU, Zheng Sophia Tang demonstrates how, in practice, exclusive jurisdiction and arbitration agreements are enforced.

Internet privacy rights : rights to protect autonomy / Paul Bernal.

Location: lax
Call #: K3264.C65 B49 2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press,


Internet Privacy Rights analyses the current threats to our online autonomy and privacy and proposes a new model for the gathering, retention and use of personal data. Key to the model is the development of specific privacy rights: a right to roam the internet with privacy, a right to monitor the monitors, a right to delete personal data and a right to create, assert and protect an online identity. These rights could help in the formulation of more effective and appropriate legislation, and shape more privacy-friendly business models. The conclusion examines how the internet might look with these rights in place and whether such an internet could be sustainable from both a governmental and a business perspective.

Behind the multilateral trading system : legal indigenization and the WTO in comparative perspective / Xing Lijuan.

Location: lax
Call #: K4610 .X56 2014
Publisher:


Behind the Multilateral Trading System offers a novel perspective from which to view and understand the WTO regime and its participants. The central feature of that new perspective is the concept of legal indigenization. This term generally refers to the process or ideology in which domestic authorities make and implement international or domestic rules in a way appealing to their native features (especially legal traditions), as responses to globalization led by a defective global legal system. The book's core thesis is that the influence of the legal tradition and culture of a society or political system inevitably and fundamentally influences the ways in which WTO members propose multilateral trading rules and implement their WTO obligations--in ways that have not, until now, been adequately explored and explained in the extensive literature relating to international trade law.

The First Amendment and the Business Corporation explores the means by which the debate over the First Amendment rights of business corporations can be resolved.

Wasting a crisis : why securities regulation fails / Paul G. Mahoney.

Location: lax
Call #: KF1070 .M34 2015
Publisher:


The recent financial crisis led to sweeping reforms that inspired countless references to the financial reforms of the New Deal. Comparable to the reforms of the New Deal in both scope and scale, the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, the main regulatory reform package introduced in the United States, also shared with New Deal reforms the assumption that the underlying cause of the crisis was misbehavior by securities market participants, exacerbated by lax regulatory oversight. With 'Wasting a Crisis', Paul G. Mahoney offers persuasive research to show that this now almost universally accepted narrative of market failure, broadly similar across financial crises, is formulated by political actors hoping to deflect blame from prior policy errors.

The right of workers to strike--to refuse to work pending the outcome of employer-employee negotiations concerning specified demands is legally recognized virtually worldwide. Yet national laws on strike action vary enormously, both in terms of the extent of state regulation and of specific procedural rules. The importance of strike law becomes obvious when taking the enormous economic and financial consequences of strikes into account. Considering how many people and businesses are affected by strike actions particularly with the globalization of industry the value of a comparative assessment of the right to strike becomes very clear.

n spite of their public attractions and millions of visitors, most shopping malls are now off-limits to free speech and expressive activity. The same may be said about many other public spaces and marketplaces in American cities and suburbs, leaving scholars and other observers to wonder where civic engagement is lawfully permitted in the United States. In 'Public Spaces, Marketplaces, and the Constitution', Anthony Maniscalco draws on key legal decisions, social theory, and urban history to demonstrate that public spaces have been split apart from First Amendment protections, while the expression of political ideas has been excluded from privately owned, publicly accessible malls.
