Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich BWL - Recht, Note: 1,7, FOM Essen, Hochschule fur Oekonomie & Management gemeinnutzige GmbH, Hochschulleitung Essen fruher Fachhochschule (Studienfach Unternehmensrecht), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1 Einleitung Am 01.01.1990 trat das Produkthaftungsgesetz (ProdHaftG) in Kraft. Durch diese Einfuhrung ergibt sich ein wesentlich verbesserter Verbraucherschutz und somit eine Haftungsverscharfung fur den Hersteller. Dies bedeutet, dass der Hersteller eines Produktes fur Personen- oder Sachschaden unabhangig davon haftet, ob ihn hinsichtlich des Fehlers ein Verschulden trifft oder nicht. Zu den Herstellern zahlen nach dem ProdHaftG auch die Importeure aus Nicht-EU-Landern, die Quasihersteller und die Handler. Mogliche Anspruche von Geschadigten scheitern im Zuge dieses Gesetzes nicht mehr daran, dass zwar der Handler, nicht aber der eigentliche Hersteller ausfindig gemacht werden kann.1 Das Produktrecht ist fur Nichtjuristen unubersichtlich. Voraussetzungen und Regelungen sind nicht allein im ProdHaftG zu finden, sondern auch in Verbindung mit anderen Gesetzestexten, wie dem Futtermittelgesetz, Arzneimittelgesetz und an verschiedenen Stellen des BGB.2"

This casebook focuses on the rules and principles of contract law, as well as the lawyer's role in planning and drafting contracts. Chapter One traces a contract case from the agreement stage, to a breakdown in the parties' relationship, to a lawsuit, to a decision in the trial court, and finally to the appellate court's opinion. It includes supporting material, including the parties' agreement, a correspondence from the lawyer to the client, the complaint, a motion to dismiss, the answer, the trial judge's charge to the jury, the special verdict form, the trial judge's decision on motions after the verdict, and the appellate court opinion. These materials help students understand where cases come from and lawyers' various roles, including planning, negotiating, counseling, drafting, as well as litigating. Following the introduction, this casebook presents extensive material on the theory and practice of transactional planning and drafting, as well as additional materials from lawyers involved in the cases. The seventh edition offers comprehensive coverage of contract law theories of obligation, including bargain, promissory estoppel, unjust enrichment, and tort arising in the contract setting. This edition includes new cases and secondary sources on developing issues of contract law. In particular, the casebook introduces several new readings on the psychology underlying contractual obligation. The casebook highlights new approaches to the problem of assent over the internet, to the battle-of-the-forms, and to consideration. The casebook retains its strength in traditional subjects such as good faith, parole evidence, gap filling, conditional obligation, and breach, but the Seventh Edition contains fewer pages than earlier editions and is suitable for a 4, 5 or 6 hour course. Another goal of the new edition is to present interesting and enjoyable materials. It includes, among other things, cartoons, notes on unusual cases, and cases and problems involving public figures such as the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jordan. The Seventh Edition even highlights (through a squib case) the relationship of contract law to epic of Gilgamesh, Woody Guthrie, the Declaration of Independence, Noah and The Great Flood, Game of Thrones, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Trek, President Obama, and Euclids proof of the Infinity of Primes, among other references.With CasebookPlus you'll receive a print book, lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, leading study aids, Gilbert® Law Dictionary and an outline starter.eBook and Learning Library - Lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, leading study aids, Gilbert® Law Dictionary and an outline starter.

Fundamentals for The Development Process

Unlike existing textbooks written for law students on specific subjects impacting real estate transactions, Real Estate Law: Fundamentals for The Development Process uses "The Development Process" as a framework for understanding how the U.S. legal system regulates, facilitates, and generally impacts real estate transactions and their outcomes. This book not only addresses the nature of specific legal issues directly relating to real estate transactions but also how those issues may best be identified and addressed in advance. This book breaks down the myriad of laws influencing the selection, acquisition, development, financing, ownership, and management of real estate, and presents them in context. Readers of Real Estate Law will gain a practical understanding, from the perspective of a real property developer or real estate executive, investor, or lender, of: how to identify potential legal issues before they arise; when to involve a real estate attorney; how to select an attorney with the appropriate, relevant experience; and how to efficiently and economically engage and manage legal counsel in addressing real estate issues. Written as a graduate-level text book, Real Estate Law comes with numerous useful features including a glossary of terms, chapter summaries, discussion questions, further reading, and a companion website with instructor resources. It is a resource of great value to real estate and finance professionals, both with and without law degrees, engaged in one aspect or another of real estate development and finance, who want to become more conversant in the legal issues impacting these transactions.

Legitimation und Dogmatik im nationalen und internationalen Rechtsvergleich

English summary: In this work, Christoph Mollers takes the traditional notion of separated powers and tries to modernize it by developing a legitimacy-based model for the legislative, executive and judicial functions. This model is based on the idea of autonomy as the central element for every legal order that claims legitimacy. The institutional implications of the distinction between individual and collective self-determination enable the author to develop certain criteria for the organization of legitimate lawmaking procedures. In this model, the concept of separated powers provides a solution for the perpetual conflict between individual and collective self-determination, both equally accepted by constitutional systems. These criteria can be applied comparatively to traditional problems of separated powers - delegation, constitutional jurisdiction - as well as to problems of multi-level legal systems. German description: Warum sind Staatsorganisationen traditionell in drei Gewalten gegliedert? Auf diese Frage gibt Christoph Mollers eine legitimationstheoretisch begrundete Antwort und macht diese juristisch nutzbar: Moderne Verfassungen legitimieren sich durch den Schutz individueller Freiheit und die Ermoglichung demokratischer Selbstbestimmung, lassen jedoch den Vorrang zwischen beiden Legitimationsformen offen. Statt einer materiellen Vorrangregel dient das Prinzip der Gewaltengliederung dem Ausgleich beider Legitimationsanspruche durch Organisation und Verfahren. Auf Grundlage dieser Einsicht leitet der Autor Kriterien zur Bestimmung der drei Gewalten her, die die Auslegung von Art. 20 Abs. 2. S. 2 GG prazisieren, und im Vergleich mit dem Verfassungsrecht der USA auf Einzelprobleme Anwendung finden: Verfassungsgerichtsbarkeit, gerichtliche Kontrolle der Verwaltung und Delegation der Rechtsetzung. In einem zweiten Argumentationsgang bewahrt sich dieses Modell auch bei foderalen Rechtsordnungen und ubernationale Organisationen wie der EU, der Internationalen Arbeitsorganisation (ILO) und der Welthandelsorganisation (WTO). Probleme der Kompetenzbestimmung zwischen Ebenen, der Verbundverwaltung oder der Anwendbarkeit von internationalem Recht werden durch das Modell auf eine systematische Grundlage gestellt.
