In the process be surveys the entire field of the fraud rule in the law of letters of credit in its substantive aspects, thus going deeper than mere banking law analyses and revealing, for the benefit of jurists everywhere, the fundamental legal issues that must underlie all sound judicial reasoning in the area. In more practical terms, this approach also allows judges to meet their essential responsibility - that of giving an answer when a case is put before them - with the widest and best possible degree of discernment."--BOOK JACKET.

Download and read online Economic Development Through World Trade in PDF and EPUB Increased participation in world trade is typically seen as the key to rapid economic growth and development. Since this work examines trade and development from the point of view of developing countries, it provides a rare opportunity to understand - and benefit from - the perspectives of the developing world. Developing nations comprise two-thirds of the membership of the World Trade Organization (WTO) so a work produced by an array of experts from those countries provides an important window on the intersection of trade and development. Since many of the topics covered in the work describe on-going progress in the WTO's "development" or Doha Round, the book also helps readers to understand the context, issues and results of this important round of international trade negotiations.

Download and read online The WTO and the Doha Round in PDF and EPUB The appointment of Dr. Supachai Panitchpakdi as Director-General of the World Trade Organization in 2002 reflects the changing power realities within the WTO. Coupled to this is the growing sense among developing countries that they have been cheated in the way the Uruguay Round commitments have been implemented and a return to unilateralism by the U.S.. The world trading system thus stands at a crossroads. The success of the current Doha Round of trade negotiations hangs in the balance. This volume examines various ways in which the WTO might be reformed or improved and the chances of success in the Doha Round thus enhanced. The WTO has an important role to play in managing globalisation so that its benefits are shared far more equally among individuals than is today the case. This challenge must be met if we are not to slide backwards into a less interdependent, and far poorer, world. Among the specific issues researched and analysed here are: the U.S.-led return to a unilateralist and interventionist approach to global problems; the importance of the rules-based WTO system to developing nations as a crucial alternative to power politics; the failure to achieve enhanced access to developed world markets for agricultural products, textiles, clothing, and footwear; the relevance of GATS and TRIPS to the developing world; internal WTO governance issues, including the important role of the Secretariat as negotiator and mediator; the implementation phase of the dispute settlement understanding; the continuing resistance to linking trade and environment; the place of human rights in the international trading system; and the likely impact of the double scourge of AIDS and terrorism on flows of trade, capital, people, and knowledge. It will quickly be observed that this book represents an approach to world trade theory that will not be welcome in all circles. Yet few will deny its enormous value as a 'reality check.' No concerned policy maker, official or academic can afford to ignore it.

Download and read online The CISG in PDF and EPUB Today, international sales contracts are frequently governed by the 1980 UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The CISG is in force in more than 60 states all over world â?? both industrial nations and developing countries. It has been widely applied in international commercial transactions in the past twenty years. More than 1,700 decisions by state courts and arbitral tribunals have been reported so far. In short, the CISG has been one of the success stories in the field of the international unification of private law. The authors introduce the reader to the mechanics of that highly successful Convention by describing and analyzing the areas that the Convention covers, in particular its scope of application, the rules on the formation of contract, and the actual sales provisions. The book is primarily aimed at students, academics, and practitioners who have not yet studied the Convention in detail. From a comparative perspective, the book will be of particular interest as it combines a civil law view and a common law view on the CISG.

Download and read online An Introduction to Zimbabwean Law in PDF and EPUB This is an introductory textbook on the Zimbabwean legal system. It sets the stage for a comprehensive description of that legal system by opening with some theoretical issues on the nature of law in general, particularly a definition of law, the role and purpose of law in society, the relationship between law and justice and how morality impacts on law. After outlining this theoretical framework, it turns to the Zimbabwean legal system and covers the following key areas: sources of Zimbabwean law, the scope of Roman-Dutch law in Zimbabwe, the law-making process and the role of Parliament, the structure of the courts in Zimbabwe, the procedures in the civil and criminal courts, the legal aid system and the nature of the legal profession. It covers the process of appointment of judges and its effect on the independence of the judiciary. It has a long closing chapter on the interpretation of statutes covering all the rules, maxims and presumptions.
