An authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the law in Australia relating to commercial leases. This authoritative work is designed to be a comprehensive analysis of the law throughout Australia, relating to all aspects of commercial leases. Commercial leases are still primarily governed by the common law, even where leases are subject to retail or shop lease legislation, as the various states' legislation tends to supplement and rely upon the common law. Consequently, the majority of this book consists of an analysis of common law principles, however, the book also examines this legislation, in particular, the Commonwealth Trade Practices Act 1974 and corresponding state fair trading legislation as well as retail or shop lease legislation on a state by state basis. This third edition will be of interest to both counsel and practitioners as well as academics, students and those involved in commercial leasing. Important Features: · Authoritative · Comprehensive · Coverage of all Australian jurisdictions · Comprehensive tables of statutes, cases and index
In their book Interactive Corporate Compliance, Jay Sigler and Joseph Murphy proposed a system in which government scrutiny of business is reduced in return for self-regulatory vigilance. In this follow-up collection of essays, Sigler and Murphy seek to meet the challenge of putting such a policy into practice. A series of essays detail a variety of suggestions for implementing such a system, as well as some forms of interactive compliance already in use. A brief foreword by John Braithwaite is followed by a chapter in which the editors fully explain the compliance approach to business-government relationships. Subsequent contributions include Attorney General Robert Abrams' three-part strategy for corporate compliance, a proposed legal standard to reward corporate due diligence in implementing codes of conduct, accounts of different experiments with interactive compliance in the United States, and a case study using interactive compliance to regulate restaurant health standards. Among the other topics discussed are programs that confront middle managers with corporate criminals, the educational failings of law and business schools, and insights into why negotiated compliance delivers better outcomes at lower costs. The volume concludes with predictions for corporate conduct in the 1990s. With its innovative approach to government-business relations, this work will be an important resource for professionals in all types of business, government, and legal positions.
Now in its second edition, this textbook presents a critical rethinking of the study of comparative law and legal theory in a globalising world, and proposes an alternative model. It highlights the inadequacies of current Western theoretical approaches in comparative law, international law, legal theory and jurisprudence, especially for studying Asian and African laws, arguing that they are too parochial and eurocentric to meet global challenges. Menski argues for combining modern natural law theories with positivist and socio-legal traditions, building an interactive, triangular concept of legal pluralism. Advocated as the fourth major approach to legal theory, this model is applied in analysing the historical and conceptual development of Hindu law, Muslim law, African laws and Chinese law.
