Firmly anchored in social science concepts, the second edition of The American Legal System demonstrates the relationships among private law, the business legal environment, and public law issues, as well as related subjects of interest. This fifteen-chapter book is divided into three parts. Part I places the legal system in a political perspective centering on the origins of the law, schools of jurisprudence, branches and functions of law, legitimacy of law, how the judiciary functions in the federal system of government, and judicial interpretation and decision making. Part II contrasts legal processes: civil suits for money damages, criminal processes, equity justice, administrative processes, and alternative dispute resolution. Part III centers on the legal norms or rules governing both civil and criminal conduct, property law, family law, contract law, and government regulation of business. Throughout, the text features edited court opinions many new to this edition illustrating lively and thought-provoking controversies that are certain to spark student interest. Among the many compelling issues addressed are the legal and constitutional controversies surrounding the Bush Administration's "War on Terror," and the socially explosive developments concerning same-sex marriage. In addition, each chapter includes at least three comparative notes showing how other legal cultures in different nation-states treat legal matters. A wealth of pedagogical features chapter-opening objectives; key terms, names, and concepts; a glossary, discussion questions, and appendices are included to aid student comprehension. The authors have prepared an Instructor's Manual and Test Bank to facilitate the book's use in the classroom."

English summary: Stephanie Gilfrich deals with the arbitrability of divorce disputes under German and US law. A pre- or midnuptial agreement may not include the possibility to arbitrate the divorce itself. A marital agreement may contain an arbitration provision with respect to certain domestic and matrimonial issues. In examining their arbitrability, the author discusses public policy matters, in particular the state's role as parens patriae. She also analyzes if the consensual divorce may in the future be subject to an arbitration agreement. German description: Die Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit nimmt im internationalen Wirtschaftsverkehr eine wichtige Funktion im Bereich der Streitschlichtung ein. Es stellt sich die Frage, ob vor dem Hintergrund der hohen Scheidungsraten die private Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit auch im Ehescheidungsrecht zulassig ist und welche Bedeutung ihr gegebenenfalls zukommen kann. Stephanie Gilfrich untersucht die Schiedsfahigkeit scheidungsrechtlicher Streitgegenstande auf der Grundlage des deutschen und des US-amerikanischen Rechts. Die rechtsvergleichende Betrachtung macht deutlich, dass die Idee einer schiedsverfahrensrechtlichen Abwicklung von Scheidungsangelegenheiten in den USA bereits intensiver diskutiert wird als in Deutschland. Die Ehescheidung als solche ist zwar aufgrund ihrer Qualifikation als Statusangelegenheit nach beiden Rechtsordnungen nicht schiedsfahig. Einzelne Scheidungsfolgesachen konnen aber den Gegenstand einer Schiedsvereinbarung bilden. Einen wesentlichen Aspekt der Untersuchung bilden prozessuale und formelle Probleme der schiedsverfahrensrechtlichen Abwicklung der Scheidungsfolgesachen. Insbesondere wird die Frage diskutiert, inwieweit sich Schiedsklauseln in einen Ehevertrag beziehungsweise in eine Scheidungsvereinbarung integrieren lassen. Die Autorin greift abschliessend eine in der Rechtspolitik gefuhrte Diskussion auf, die sich mit der Ubertragung der Scheidungsangelegenheiten auf die Notare auseinandersetzt. Diese Problematik weitet sie auf das Schiedsverfahrensrecht aus und untersucht, ob eine Ubertragung der einvernehmlichen Scheidungen auch auf die privaten Schiedsgerichte moglich und sinnvoll sein kann.

Today, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has gained international recognition and is widely used to complement the conventional methods of resolving disputes through courts of law. ADR simply entails all modes of dispute settlement/resolution other than the traditional approaches of dispute settlement through courts of law. Mainly, these modes are: negotiation, mediation, [re]conciliation, and arbitration. The modern ADR movement began in the United States as a result of two main concerns for reforming the American justice system: the need for better-quality processes and outcomes in the judicial system; and the need for efficiency of justice. ADR was transplanted into the African legal systems in the 1980s and 1990s as a result of the liberalization of the African economies, which was accompanied by such conditionalities as reform of the justice and legal sectors, under the Structural Adjustment Programmes. However, most of the methods of ADR that are promoted for inclusion in African justice systems are similar to pre-colonial African dispute settlement mechanisms that encouraged restoration of harmony and social bonds in the justice system. In Tanzania ADR was introduced in 1994 through Government Notice No. 422, which amended the First Schedule to the Civil Procedure Code Act (1966), and it is now an inherent component of the country's legal system. In recognition of its importance in civil litigation in Tanzania, ADR has been made a compulsory subject in higher learning/training institutions for lawyers. This handbook provides theories, principles, examples of practice, and materials relating to ADR in Tanzania and is therefore an essential resource for practicing lawyers as well as law students with an interest in Tanzania. It also contains additional information on evolving standards in international commercial arbitration, which are very useful to legal practitioners and law students.

Conflicts in Africa have a great deal in common, and striking parallels can be drawn between them at all levels. Dynamics affecting the most complex war-time conflicts, civil unrest and other macro disputes are in play even in the smallest community conflicts. The converse is also true: lessons learned through community mediation, for example in South Africa, are applicable to the most complex and largest conflicts to be found on the continent. Together, the eleven chapters in this publication, in addition to the prologue and epilogue, suggest that a comprehensive assessment of efforts and investments in conflict resolution and peace studies in Africa since the mid-1990s is due in order to identify lessons and challenges, as well as best practices. Just as conflict dynamics are comparable between African conflicts, whether large or small, local or international, so are alternative dispute resolution processes. Effective approaches to resolving large-scale conflicts and civil wars are effective at the community level, and ineffectual techniques at the community level are just as likely to be counter-productive in mediating international disputes. While there may be some differences in mediating macro- and micro-conflicts (such as the time required, the need for negotiation teams, and the complexities of agenda development or pre-negotiations), as far as the mediation process is concerned, the differences are more like variations on a theme than real substantive dissimilarities. This volume provides case studies of programs and policies, and legislations on alternative dispute resolution and peace building, and examines and proposes some new, promising ideas for conflict prevention, as well as maintenance of peace, justice and security in Africa.
