State Bar of Texas, Party talk: answers to everyday legal questions for Texas lawyers. State Bar of Texas, 2012.

KFT1281.P37 2012

 

When asked what one does for a living, responding that one is attorney is met with a variety of responses. Among the most common is something along the lines of “So you’re a lawyer? Maybe you can answer a question for me?” Of course, most lawyers’ expertise doesn’t cover every possible area of the law, so the State Bar of Texas is here to help you with Party Talk: Answers to Everyday Legal Questions for Texas Lawyers. Co-authored by Professor Rick McElvaney in a casual and amusing style, this inviting hardbound book provides succinct answers to a variety of common legal questions often asked by partygoers, including those on such topics as: driving while intoxicated, neighbor issues, divorce, and estate planning.

 

 

William Schabas. Unimaginable atrocities: justice, politics, and rights at the war crimes tribunals. 1st ed. Oxford University Press, 2012.

KZ7145.S33 2012

 

As international criminal courts and tribunals have proliferated and international criminal law is increasingly seen as a key tool for bringing the world's worst perpetrators to account, the controversies surrounding the international trials of war criminals have grown. War crimes tribunals have to deal with accusations of victor's justice, bad prosecutorial policy and case management, and of jeopardizing fragile peace in post-conflict situations. In Unimaginable Atrocities, one of the leading writers in the field of international criminal law explores these controversial issues.
