International Commercial Arbitration Practice: 21st Century Perspectives By Horacio Grigera Naon
The scope and importance of International Commercial Arbitration (ICA) has expanded exponentially in the last few decades and has become the natural and logical method to resolve international business and economic disputes. This collective work captures the development of ICA from different perspectives and uniquely brings together the ideas, suggestions and perspectives of in-house counsel as the most important users of ICA, along with outside counsel, arbitrators themselves, and major arbitration organizations who all help provide the service. Most, if not all, of the contributing authors have served as counsel or arbitrator in arbitrations and have further contributed, through their writings, teachings or activities in arbitral and other institutions, to the evolution of ICA covered by this collective work. Accordingly, International Commercial Arbitration Practice: 21st Century Perspectives is an indispensable tool for the reader–practitioner, arbitrator, academic, magistrate or student–not only to obtain useful general information on ICA practice today but to gain insightful views as to the influence of this institution in the settlement of international commercial disputes in specific economic areas, industries and commercial activities. International Commercial Arbitration Practice: 21st Century Perspectives brings the process alive and provides the reader with a useful practice guide whether he or she represents a client participating in an international commercial arbitration, is in-house counsel for a company considering arbitration as a possible method of dispute resolution, or is an arbitrator with cases at hand.
The book is organized by Parts which contain thematically related chapters. Part I deals with an overview of key elements in ICA practice and includes chapters on how arbitration is conducted under different legal systems such as common law, civil law, and shari'a law, as well as a chapter on cultural issues in international arbitration. Part II contains geographical regional overviews covering most regions of the world (Western Europe, Russia/NIS countries, Asia (particularly China & Hong Kong and the Indian Subcontinent), Middle East & North Africa, Latin America, the U.S., Canada, and Australia & New Zealand. Part III includes individual industry sector views of how ICA is conducted in individual industry and business sectors such as oil & gas, LNG, mining, construction, telecommunications, satellite communications, intellectual property, sports, banking & finance, insurance & reinsurance, securities, shipping & maritime, corporate shareholder and bankruptcy settings. These chapters are highly instructive because many of them were written by current or former in-house counsel in these industries or, in some cases, by outside counsel who focus on these industries. Part IV of the book describes recent trends at several major global commercial arbitration institutions such as the ICC, ICDR, LCIA, CPR and WIPO. Part V deals with questions of how technology has been changing ICA practice in recent years, including chapters relating to the use of technology by some major arbitral institutions, videoc

SAGAY: Nigerian Law Of Contract.

In the first edition of this book, one of the objectives of the author was that it would enable Nigerian students and legal practitioners to rely substantially on Nigerian case law in contacts, supplemented by cases from English and other Commonwealth of Nations countries’ courts. The author had in that edition fully woven the Nigerian judicial pronouncements in the law of contract into the fabric of the text. Thus, the basic common law principles of the law of contract were fully discussed, explained and illustrated by references to the rich collection of Nigerian cases and statutes.

In this edition, not only has the above practice been sustained, additionally, numerous Nigerian cases, decided since 1985 when the first edition was published – giving further elaboration and clarity to the basic common law principles – have been incorporated into the book. What is particularly significant about these new cases is that an overwhelming number of them emanate from the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. This edition is therefore even more Nigerian than the first edition, without losing any of its universal common law flavour.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR.
SagayProfessor I.E. Sagay, LL.B (Ife), LL.B., Ph.D. (Cantab.) Former Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Benin, S.A.N., Nigeria, is an established author and scholar and has conceived this book primarily as a work for law students, although the copious footnote references will be of great benefit to practitioners.

The Changing Law By Denning
"The book is not intended to be an exposition of legal propositions. It is only an attempt to draw a picture of the changes that are taking place. The reason for the title "The Changing Law" is because so many people think that the law is certain and that it can only be changed by Parliament. The truth is that the law if often uncertain and it is continually being changed, or perhaps I should say developed, by the judges. In theory the judges do not make law. They only expound it. But as no one knows what the law is until the judges expound it, it follows that they make it. The process of gradual change has been the very life of the common law. The legal profession has usually found itself divided into two camps, those who want to make a change and those who prefer things to stay as they are; and between the two, we have somehow usually found the happy mean. ... If the common law is to retain its place as the greatest system of law that the world has ever seen, it cannot stand still whilst everything else moves on. It must develop too. It must adapt itself to the new conditions. In these lectures, I have shown how this is being done." -- from the Preface, p. vii-viii.
