"Überzeugend und mit bissigem Witz. Das ist Unterhaltung auf höchstem Niveau." The Sunday Times Als Harvard-Absolvent David Zinc Partner bei einer der angesehensten Großkanzleien Chicagos wird, scheint seiner Karriere nichts mehr im Weg zu stehen. Doch der Job erweist sich als die Hölle. Fünf Jahre später zieht David die Reißleine und kündigt. Stattdessen heuert er bei Finley & Figg an, einer auf Verkehrsunfälle spezialisierten Vorstadt-Kanzlei, deren chaotische Partner zunächst nicht wissen, was sie mit ihm anfangen sollen. Bis die Kanzlei ihren ersten großen Fall an Land zieht. Der Prozess könnte Millionen einspielen – die Feuertaufe für David. Als Anwalt bei Rogan Rothberg, einer der renommiertesten Kanzleien im Großraum Chicagos, hat man ausgesorgt. Jeder Jurist würde seine rechte Hand für diesen Job geben. David Zinc ist seit fünf Jahren dabei. Fünf harte Jahre, in denen er sechs Tage die Woche von morgens sieben bis abends zehn arbeitet. Dann schmeißt er hin und bewirbt sich bei Finley & Figg, einem windigen Zweimannbetrieb, der seine Fixkosten mit Verkehrsunfällen und ähnlichen Kleinstdelikten deckt. Doch was Davids neuen Arbeitgebern an Prestige fehlt, machen sie an Einfallsreichtum wett. Kaum ein Winkelzug, den sie nicht geschickt für sich verwenden, kaum ein Paragraph, den sie nicht auszuschlachten wüssten. David kommt aus dem Staunen nicht heraus, bis Wally Figg einen Fall aufspürt, der die große Wende für die kleine Kanzlei bedeuten könnte: die Klage gegen einen Pharmakonzern, der ein Medikament trotz möglicherweise tödlicher Nebenwirkungen nicht vom Markt nehmen will. Die Partner versprechen ihren Klienten das große Geld, und auch David lässt sich von der Begeisterung anstecken, bis er erkennt, dass Finley & Figg jede Kompetenz für einen Prozess dieser Größenordnung fehlt.

This book is a collection of papers that address a fundamental question: What is the role of civil justice and civil procedure in the various national traditions in the contemporary world? The book presents striking differences among a range of countries and legal traditions, but also points to common trends and open issues. It brings together prominent experts, professionals and scholars from both civil and common law jurisdictions. It represents all main legal traditions ranging from Europe (Germanic and Romanic countries, Scandinavia, ex-Socialist countries) and Russia to the Americas (North and South) and China (Mainland and Hong Kong). While addressing the main issue – the goals of civil justice – the book discusses the most topical concerns regarding the functioning and efficiency of national systems of civil justice. These include concerns such as finding the appropriate balance between accurate fact-finding and the right to a fair trial within a reasonable time, the processing of hard cases and the function of civil justice as a specific public service. In the mosaic of contrasts and oppositions special place is devoted to the continuing battle between the individualistic/liberal approach and the collectivist/paternalistic approach – the battle in which, seemingly, paternalistic tendencies regain momentum in a number of contemporary justice systems.

Written for upper-level law students who intend to practice law in California, this book emphasizes those aspects of California civil procedure that deviate from the federal system. California Civil Procedure aims to serve several functions. First, upon completion of a course using this casebook, students are prepared to more competently conduct civil litigation in the California courts upon graduation. Furthermore, this book represents the procedural advantages and disadvantages of litigating in California state courts as opposed to federal courts so new lawyers can make an informed choice between filing an action in one system or the other. This book also provides students with a brief summary of the federal or general position on each major topic as a basis of comparison and as a review of first-year civil procedure.

die Beteiligung von Laien in der amerikanischen und deutschen zivilen Gerichtsbarkeit

Vor dem Hintergrund der Harmonisierung von Rechtsvorschriften innerhalb der Europaischen Union, insbesondere auch der Bildung eines einheitlichen Gerichtsapparates als wichtiger Saule fur ein politisches Zusammenwachsen der verschiedenen Staaten, befasst sich diese Arbeit mit der Beteiligung von Laien im amerikanischen Zivilprozess und vergleicht diese mit dem deutschen Laienrichtersystem. Die Beteiligung von Laien in Verfahren der zivilen Gerichtsbarkeit ist in den USA und in Deutschland allerdings sehr unterschiedlich ausgestaltet. Hat es daher Vorteile, Laien in einem zivilen Gerichtssystem zu beteiligen und sollte eine solche Laienbeteiligung vorzugsweise nach amerikanischem oder nach deutschem Muster gestaltet werden? Die Arbeit beantwortet diese Frage letztendlich nicht, sondern versucht, anhand der Beschreibung des amerikanischen Modells Antworten zu geben."

Es wird alles immer schlimmer, eine schreckliche Nachricht jagt die andere: Die Reichen werden reicher, die Armen ärmer. Es gibt immer mehr Kriege, Gewaltverbrechen, Naturkatastrophen. Viele Menschen tragen solche beängstigenden Bilder im Kopf. Doch sie liegen damit grundfalsch. Unser Gehirn verführt uns zu einer dramatisierenden Weltsicht, die mitnichten der Realität entspricht, wie der geniale Statistiker und Wissenschaftler Hans Rosling erklärt. Wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird • ein sicheres, auf Fakten basierendes Gerüst besitzen, um die Welt so zu sehen, wie sie wirklich ist • die zehn gängigsten Arten von aufgebauschten Geschichten erkennen • bessere Entscheidungen treffen können • wahre Factfulness erreichen – jene offene, neugierige und entspannte Geisteshaltung, in der Sie nur noch Ansichten teilen und Urteile fällen, die auf soliden Fakten basieren

The Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive set of teaching materials for the course in Conflict of Laws as it is taught in most American law schools. It includes some new cases, selected for their teaching value, while also retaining the best cases from the prior edition. It also includes problems in all chapters to test the students' understanding of each segment of material covered in the course. The first three chapters establish the historical background for the study of Conflict of Laws, introduce the students to all of the Conflicts systems existing in the United States, and explore the constitutional limits on the ability of the states to apply their law to multistate transactions and occurrences. With this background, the following four chapters examine the operation of the choice-of-law doctrines used in the areas of torts, contracts, property, and domestic relations. The grounding provided by the first three chapters allows teachers to choose those topics to teach in the following four chapters without necessarily covering the chapters in their entirety if time does not permit. The final three chapters deal with vertical choice of law (the Erie doctrine), interstate judgment enforcement, and personal jurisdiction. The book is organized so that these final three chapters can be covered out of order to suit a wide range of teaching preferences. Each chapter contains note material following the cases to help teachers explore the full range of issues raised by the doctrines being studied. The problems contained in each chapter increase the students' comprehension of the materials and provide a basis for more interesting classroom discussions.
