Marc A. Jacob. Precedents and case-based reasoning in the European Court of Justice: unfinished business. Cambridge University Press, 2014.

KJE546.J32 2014

 

The European Court of Justice is the court of last resort in matters of European Union law. It is also, in author Marc Jacob’s words, a “prolific juggernaut,” ruling on everything from consumer protection to the institutional architecture of the EU itself. In this book, Jacob presents a detailed analysis of the Court’s use of precedent in its decisions, and suggests ways in which its legal methods and reasoning could be strengthened.

 

 

 

 

Mike Koehler. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in a new era. Edward Elgar, 2014.

KF9351.K64 2014

 

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) was enacted in 1977, making it a crime to bribe foreign officials in order to obtain business. But what constitutes a bribe is not always obvious. Koehler, a professor at Southern Illinois University School of Law and founder of the FCPA Professor website, has written this comprehensive guide not only for FCPA attorneys, but for anyone doing business in the global marketplace.
