    Clinical Legal Education in Asia Accessing Justice for the Underprivileged
    This book describes the history, present status and possible future models of clinical legal education (CLE) in 12 Asian jurisdictions: China, Hong Kong, India, Palestine, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Israel, Japan, Taiwan, Maldives, and South Korea. Contributors use case studies from each country to show that while CLE in Asia could initially have been described as an Anglo-Western style of legal education teaching, it has evolved past that framework. While it remains in an early development stage, CLE throughout Asia has both incorporated the core values established by traditional Western legal education theorists and developed its own Asian characteristics. Conclusions drawn from this important research have great utility for those involved with legal clinics across the globe.

  • Fake Law The Truth About Justice in an Age of Lies
    Fake Law The Truth About Justice in an Age of Lies
    Could the courts really order the death of your innocent baby? Was there an illegal immigrant who couldn't be deported because he had a pet cat? Are unelected judges truly enemies of the people?

    Most of us think the law is only relevant to criminals, if we even think of it at all. But the law touches every area of our lives: from intimate family matters to the biggest issues in our society.

    Our unfamiliarity is dangerous because it makes us vulnerable to media spin, political lies and the kind of misinformation that frequently comes from loud-mouthed amateurs and those with vested interests. This 'fake law' allows the powerful and the ignorant to corrupt justice without our knowledge - worse, we risk letting them make us complicit.

    Thankfully, the Secret Barrister is back to reveal the stupidity, malice and incompetence behind many of the biggest legal stories of recent years. In Fake Law, the Secret Barrister debunks the lies and builds an hilarious, alarming and eye-opening defence against the abuse of our law, our rights and our democracy.

  • Legal Response to Natural Disasters
    Legal Response to Natural Disasters
    Post Christchurch earthquakes and other recent natural disasters in New Zealand, highlighted the lack of comprehensive information and guidance available for professionals dealing with the legal issues that arise in the aftermath. This book has been written to address that information gap. With this objective in mind, the book draws upon legal and non-legal information from national and international sources to provide an analysis of, and commentary on, many of the legal issues that occur in the wake of natural disasters. Part One covers the methodology behind interviews and surveys carried out of those involved in natural disasters and the legal issues indentified from those interviews. Part Two looks at the particular legal problems that have arisen from the natural disasters in relation to insurance, family law, residential and commercial tenancies, taxation, media and privacy, the doctrine of frustration, crime, the environment, health and safety, and the legal position of volunteers after natural disasters have occurred. Part Two also undertakes a comparative analysis of overseas legal experiences and the lessons that can be learnt from them. Part Three deals with the application of the lessons learnt both nationally and internationally in terms of law reform relevant to natural disasters. The comprehensive scope of legal issues dealt with in the book makes it invaluable for lawyers and agencies both in New Zealand and from overseas jurisdictions who practice in areas of the law that relate to various forms of natural disaster.

  • Uncrowned Queen The Fateful Life of Margaret Beaufort Tudor Matriarch
    Uncrowned Queen The Fateful Life of Margaret Beaufort Tudor Matriarch
    28 January 1457. England is in the grip of the Wars of the Roses. Inside the walls of Pembroke Castle a thirteen-year-old girl gives birth to a boy. The ordeal nearly kills them both, forging a powerful bond that will see mother and son work together to found the most famous dynasty in British history: the Tudors.

    As the battle for royal supremacy raged between the houses of Lancaster and York, Margaret Beaufort, who was descended from Edward III and proved to be a critical threat to the Yorkist cause, was forced to give up her son - she would be separated from him for fourteen years. Surrounded by conspiracies in the enemy Yorkist court, Margaret remained steadfast, only just escaping the headman's axe as she plotted to overthrow Richard III and secure her son the throne. Against all odds, in 1485 Henry Tudor was victorious on the battlefield at Bosworth. Margaret's unceasing efforts and royal blood saw her son crowned King Henry VII, and Margaret became the most powerful woman in England.

    Nicola Tallis unmasks the many myths that have attached themselves to Margaret and reveals the real woman: an independent and vibrant character, who would risk everything to become Queen in all but name.
