This is a revision of noted author Deborah Bouchoux's market-leading legal research and writing text for paralegal students. This clear, well-organized text is designed specifically for paralegal students, offering a comprehensive overview of research and writing skills, reinforced by illustrations and exercises. Part I covers Primary Authorities, Part II discuses Secondary Authorities, and Part III covers the basics of Legaal Writing. The Legal Writing section includes samples of legal writing, such as letters, a court brief, and a legal memorandum, though throughout the book, Bouchoux integrates writing strategies into each research chapter to demonstrate the link between the two processes. In addition, there is thorough coverage of electronic research, including a chapter on internet research as well as fee-based services such as Lexis Advance and Westlaw. Additional tips on how to effectively use electronic resources are also included throughout the text. Bouchoux thoroughly explains proper citation form and updating/validating legal authorities.

Major developments in the field since the publication of Learning Forensic Assessment are integrated in this revised edition, including revised editions of the DSM-5, HCR-20 scale, and child custody guidelines. This textbook is designed for graduate students learning forensic assessment and psychologists coming to forensic practice later in their careers. It is organized around five broad areas: Professional and Practice Issues, Adult Forensic Assessment, Juvenile Forensic Assessment, Civil Forensic Assessment, and Communicating Your Findings. Each chapter begins with a strong teaching and learning foundation. The latter part of each chapter is assessment specific, covering available assessment measures and approaches to assessment. The authors go well beyond simple descriptions of assessment measures and provide a conceptual discussion of the evaluation process that helps the reader understand how assessment measures fit into the overall evaluation process. The evaluation component is geared toward assessing the important aspects of the construct as laid out in the early part of each chapter. Each chapter then concludes with a case example to illustrate the measures and techniques described.

Ich ist nicht Gehirn

Philosophie des Geistes für das 21. Jahrhundert

Author: Markus Gabriel

Publisher: Ullstein eBooks

ISBN: 384371178X

Category: Philosophy

Gibt es die menschliche Freiheit? Ist unsere gesamte Lebensform nur eine Illusion? Reicht das Vorhandensein eines Gehirns, um ein geistiges Lebewesen zu sein? Von den Naturwissenschaften ausgehend hat sich in den letzten Jahren ein Neurozentrismus herausgebildet, der auf der Annahme basiert, dass Ich gleich Gehirn ist. Markus Gabriel hingegen hegt begründete Zweifel, dass wir uns auf diese Weise selbst erkennen können. Er greift das wissenschaftliche Weltbild an und lädt ein zur Selbstreflexion anhand zentraler Begriffe wie Ich, Bewusstsein oder Freiheit mit Hilfe von Kant, Schopenhauer und Nagel, aber auch Dr. Who, The Walking Dead und Fargo. Mit seinem leidenschaftlichen Plädoyer gegen den Neurozentrismus stellt Markus Gabriel eine neue Verteidigung des freien Willens vor und gibt eine zeitgemäße Anleitung zum philosophischen Nachdenken über uns selbst - mit Verve, Humor und blitz-gescheiten Erkenntnissen.

Vom Sakrament zum Vertrag

Ehe, Religion und Recht in der abendländischen Tradition

Was ist die Ehe - Ruckgrat einer stabilen Gesellschaftsordnung oder Kernmodell patriarchalischer Herrschaftsstruktur? Die Vielfalt von Meinungen daruber ist verwirrend. John Witte untersucht das komplexe Zusammenspiel von Recht, Theologie und dem Konzept der Ehe im Abendland. Er verfolgt die christlichen Normen und die abendlandischen rechtlichen Prinzipien zur Ehe und zum Familienleben besonders in den letzten 500 Jahren. Dabei stellt der Autor den besonderen Beitrag eines jeden Modells - des sakramentalen-katholischen, des lutherischen, calvinistischen, anglikanischen und des aufklarerischen Ehekonzepts - zur Ehetradition des Abendlandes jenseits moralischer Kategorisierungen heraus.

Lex Maritima

Grundzüge eines transnationalen Seehandelsrechts

Author: Andreas Maurer

Publisher: Mohr Siebeck

Category: Law

Page: 260

English summary: Largely unnoticed by the law, the maritime trade sector has developed private mechanisms of norm-making, adjudication, and enforcement which can be called transnational law. In this context especially the participation of stakeholders provides legitimation of privately made norms and standards in international maritime trade. German description: In der Rechtswissenschaft werden unter den Stichworten aNeue Lex Mercatoria und aTransnationales Recht seit Jahrzehnten Konzepte eines globalisierten Rechts jenseits des Nationalstaats diskutiert. Weitgehend unbeachtet von derartigen Debatten hat die Seehandelsbranche aufgrund ihrer eigenen Internationalitat die Globalisierung bereits seit langem tatsachlich vollzogen. Der grenzuberschreitende Seehandel hat dabei Institutionen im Bereich von Rechtsetzung, Rechtsprechung und Rechtsdurchsetzung entwickelt, die aufgrund privater Setzung ein transnationales Seehandelsrecht begrunden. Regeln entstehen dabei in Verfahren, die unter breiter Beteiligung von allen Interessentragern des Seehandels zustande kommen. Diese dienen als Beispiel fur die Legitimation eines transnationalen Rechts, das mit staatlichem Recht interagiert und so einen hybriden Rechtskorper - eine Lex Maritima - bildet.
