One of the hallmarks of a civilized society is the way in which it caters for those

has generally developed internationally from that which protected society from
people with mental disorder to additionally protecting the health and safety of
people with mental disorder.

I am most grateful, first of all, to my supervisor, Professor Peter Kooijmans.
Throughout my working at this study he allowed me to make use of his
wisdom while at the same time affording inspiration and freedom. He never
permitted his demanding task as a Judge at the International Court of Justice
to stand in the way of discussing my thesis with me for many hours. I also wish
to express my profound gratitude to Professor John Dugard, who acted as
After reading this chapter, you will be able to answer the following questions: What types of contracts fall within the statute of frauds?

THIS BOOK ELABORATES a law and economics–based theoretical under-
standing of the structure of the international legal system. The need for
such a work is clear. Political science has only recently reengaged with in-
ternational law. Economics has not sought to explain international law
broadly, although it has made forays into international trade law, while law
and economics has only addressed limited aspects of international law. In-
ternational legal theory itself has until recently been mired in a stale and
equipoised debate between natural law and positive law.
To make sure that forming a corporation
is the best legal and tax approach for
your business, this chapter compares
the corporation to other small business legal
structures, such as the sole proprietorship, the
partnership, and the popular limited liability
company. A corporation, like a limited liability
company, protects your personal assets from
business creditors. But the corporation stands
apart from all other business forms due to its
built-in organizational structure and unique
access to investment sources and capital markets.

Sir William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) stands as the first great effort to reduce the English common law to a unified and rational system. Blackstone demonstrated that the English law as a system of justice was comparable to Roman law and the civil law of the Continent. Clearly and elegantly written, the work achieved immediate renown and exerted a powerful influence on legal education in England and in America which was to last into the late nineteenth century. The book is regarded not only as a legal classic but as a literary masterpiece....
Liability means legal responsibility for the consequences of your acts
or omissions. Your accountability to the client may be enforced by civil
remedies or criminal penalties. For example, a web developer who has
agreed in writing to complete an e-commerce site by a speciﬁ c date will
have liability to the client if the project is not completed on time.
Limitations on liability and use of ALL CAPS
Again, if an agreement includes a limitation on liability, many states
require by law that the limitation language be sufﬁ ciently “conspicuous”
in the document.
