Artemus Ward and David L. Weiden
Sorcerers' apprentices: 100 years of law clerks at the United States Supreme Court
New York: New York University Press, 2006

KF8771.W37 2006

Based on Supreme Court archives, the personal papers of justices and other figures at the Supreme Court, and interviews and written surveys with 150 former clerks, Sorcerersí Apprentices provides a rare look at the life of a law clerk, and how it has evolved since its nineteenth-century beginnings. The authors reveal that throughout history, clerks have not only written briefs, but made significant decisions about cases that are often unseen by those outside of justices' chambers.





Whittaker, Simon
Liability for Products: English Law, French Law, and European Harmonization
UK: Oxford University Press, 2005

KJC1688.W47 2005

The EU has been active in attempting to harmonize the laws of product liability and sale of goods to consumers, with the aim of promoting fair competition, developing the internal market, and protecting consumers. This comparative study considers the French and English laws governing all those who may be liable for products: their producers, their suppliers, their users and their regulators. It examines in each system the private law of tort and contract and aspects of the civil process which are important in determining liability; the administrative law concerning failures to regulate or control product safety; and the liability for products of suppliers of public services, such as water or healthcare. It then considers how the substantive criminal offences affecting product safety, whether particular to products or under more general law, relate to civil liability or to compensation.
