Law and Judicial Duty by Hamburger
Philip Hamburger’s Law and Judicial Duty traces the early history of what is today called “judicial review.” Working from previously unexplored evidence, Hamburger questions the very concept of judicial review. Although decisions holding statutes unconstitutional are these days considered instances of a distinct judicial power of review, Hamburger shows that they were once understood merely as instances of a broader judicial duty. The book’s focus on judicial duty overturns the familiar debate about judicial power. The book is therefore essential reading for anyone concerned about the proper role of the judiciary. Hamburger lays the foundation for his argument by explaining the common law ideals of law and judicial duty. He shows that the law of the land was understood to rest on the authority of the lawmaker and that what could not be discerned within the law of the land was not considered legally binding. He then shows that judges had a duty to decide in accord with the law of the land. These two ideals—law and judicial duty—together established and limited what judges could do. By reviving an understanding of these common law ideals, Law and Judicial Duty calls into question the modern assumption that judicial review is a power within the judges’ control. Indeed, the book shows that what is currently considered a distinct power of review was once understood as a matter of duty—the duty of judges to decide in accord with the law of the land. The book thereby challenges the very notion of judicial review. It shows that judges had authority to hold government acts unconstitutional, but that they enjoyed this power only to the extent it was required by their duty. In laying out the common law ideals, and in explaining judicial review as an aspect of judicial duty, Law and Judicial Duty reveals a very different paradigm of law and of judging than prevails today. The book, moreover, sheds new light on a host of misunderstood problems, including intent, manifest contradiction, the status of foreign and international law, the cases and controversies requirement, and the authority of judicial precedent.

Textbook of Arbitration and Conciliation with Alternative Dispute Resolution 2e by Saharay


Textbook on Muslim Law By singh
Muslim law is applicable in more than fifty countries of the world and whenever some prevalent practices have been tried to be 'reformed' through legislation it is seen that they have reverted back to Quranic laws. With this little observation, in this book a humble attempt has been made to elaborated the whole Mohammedan Law in a very systematic, simple, lucid and concise form. As the uncodified law, every attempt has been made to discuss all Chapters in the changed perspectives as the law has been put into innovative process through judicial decisions and changed social thinking. The book is updated in all respect to case laws till November, 2009. I am quite confident that the book will serve the purpose of all those who want to get knowledge about the Muslim law. Besides, the book will be useful for the academicians, students, legal practitioners, judges etc. ISBN : 9789350850077
Textbook on Pleadings, Drafting and Conveyancing By Kafaltiya
The purpose of this "Practical Exercise Book" is to give a general idea to LL.B students about the art of Pleading and Conveyancing. It covers their course content on the subject. The object of pleading is to give a fair notice of the case of one party which has to be met by the other so that the contesting parties may direct their evidence to the issues disclosed by the pleadings. A practical lawyer needs the latest techniques of pleadings of suits, petitions, applications, writs etc. Similarly, drafting of the transfer of property rights has a target to avoid future disputes between the parties to the transaction. The function of pleading is not simply for the benefit of the parties but also for the assistance of the Court as a pleading defines the area of conflict within which a party to an action is bound to confine its claim or defence. Drafting a pleading for suits or applications is laying a foundation upon which the whole structure of claim or written statement of the defendant is built, or the defence is made. Drafting of pleadings is therefore an important work of a busy lawyer. A plaint or a written Statement is called pleadings. But it covers several interlocutory applications too. Conveyance means drafting of a transaction relating to some interest, right, estate in a property viz., possession, enjoyment of disposition etc. Drafting of a conveyance; i.e., drafting a transaction relating to creation, extinguishments, and declaration, or conferment of some right or obligation and limitation in a property right between two or more living persons including a "Will" requires certain formalities to make it a legal instrument. "Instrument" includes every document by which any right or liability is, or purports to be, created, transferred, limited, extended, extinguished or recorded. A fine legal instrument, therefore, is supposed to avoid future litigation and to solve legal problems that may arise in future under it. A lawyer should have a vision towards this

Modern Legal Drafting : A Guide to Using Clearer Language 2e by Butt
In the second edition of this highly regarded text, the authors show how and why traditional legal language has developed the peculiar characteristics that make legal documents inaccessible to the end users. Incorporating recent research and case law, the book provides a critical examination of case law and the rules of interpretation. Detailed case studies illustrate how obtuse or outdated words, phrases and concepts can be rewritten, reworked or removed altogether. Particularly useful is the step-by-step guide to drafting in the modern style, using examples from four types of common legal documents: leases, company constitutions, wills and conveyances. Readers will gain an appreciation of the historical influences on drafting practice and the use of legal terminology. They will learn about the current moves to reform legal language, and receive clear instruction on how to make their writing clearer and their legal documents more useful.
Mediation Advocacy By Goodman
"Mediation is not a soft option for the advocate. If you are unprepared, if you do not know what to expect, if you do not know what you are doing, your client will be at a considerable disadvantage and you will come unstuck. This book is aimed at lawyers and other professional advocates who represent clients in mediation. It is written not only for ""first-timers"" needing to learn about the basics of mediation very quickly, particularly as to what they should expect and how they should prepare. More seasoned advocates wishing to specialise in mediation advocacy and who want to develop the particular skills that it requires will also find it invaluable. ""The advocacy skills necessary in a mediation are quite different from those required for the (usually civilised) battle that takes place in a courtroom. That is why ìMediation Advocacyî is such a valuable book. It gives a great deal of very useful advice as to how to prepare for and conduct a mediation from beginning to end. It is an intensely practical book. It will be of great benefit to all those who conduct litigation."" Lord Justice Dyson, Foreword."
The Principles and Precedents of the Art of Cross Examination 10e By Aiyar
Cross Examination is perhaps the most crucial aspect of court Iprocedures, once charges have been framed. It is truly an art that has to be learnt and mastered by the lawyer. The book by Aiyar and Aiyar is considered as an authority on the subject. The classical illustrations in the form of model questions are very useful for framing the grounds to cross examine various types of witnesses. The current edition of the book is a treatise on the art of cross examination and carefully examines every minute detail of the concepts pertaining to cross examination. The book is exhaustive in content, coherent and consistent in dealing with all the principles and practices in cross examination. A large number of cases have been incorporated to give practical examples and for a greater understanding of the subject. The book will be a valuable reference for legal practitioners and students of law as well.
