Featured Resource List

Faye Fangfei Wang. Online dispute resolution : technology, management and legal practice from an international perspective. Chandos, 2009.

K2390.W36 2008

 

This book introduces different forms of online dispute resolution against the background of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) developments in the off-line environment. It examines the current technology and legal status of ODR in the EU, US, Asia and Australia, and discusses the relations between the various parties in dispute resolutions, especially the Fifth party for the provider of the technology. It further analyses the four most successful examples, such as Michigan Cybercourt, WIPO-UDRP, eBay-SquareTrade and AAA-CyberSettle. Finally, a proposal for resolving e-contract disputes via ODR is provided, and a code of conduct recommended in order to regulate the electronic commerce market.

 

 

Beau Breslin. From words to worlds : exploring constitutional functionality. Johns Hopkins University Press, 2009.

K3165.B743 2009

 

This book lays out and explains the essential functions that a modern, written constitution must incorporate in order to serve as a nation’s fundamental law—including creating a new citizenry, structuring the institutions of government, regulating conflict between layers and branches of government, and limiting the power of the sovereign. Breslin discusses the theoretical concepts behind the fundamentals of written constitutions and examines in depth some of the most important constitutional charters from around the world. In assaying how states put structural ideas into practice, this comparative study in constitutional thought demonstrates the key components that a state’s foundational document must address.
