An essential reference for practitioners, emphasizing how legal concepts affect the process of bringing architectural vision to reality. Law for Architects: What You Need to Know guides design professionals through the daunting landscape where design and construction meet the legal system. It provides an introduction—written in clear, reader-friendly language—to issues that arise at every stage in the practice of architecture. For architects starting or building their own practice: Why do I need a written agreement with my clients? Why do I need insurance? How do I organize my firm? For seasoned architects considering retirement: How do I transfer ownership in my company? How can I benefit from the good will I helped to build? For students who want to learn more about the practicalities of starting out: Why is it important to have a license? Isn’t it enough to have a degree in architecture? What are my rights as an employee? It also addresses the perennial questions that concern architects: How do I protect myself from being sued? How do I protect my intellectual property rights in my work? and much more. Law for Architects identifies the legal issues that lurk in every corner of your design practice and helps you figure out what questions you need to ask.

The primary focus of this text is to provide a bridge for students between the academic world and the real world. This bridge is built through an understanding of what is law, how law is created, how law affects almost every activity of human conduct, and how legal institutions operate. Intended mainly for architectural and engineering students, but increasingly for those in business schools and law schools, this text features a clear, concise, and jargon-free presentation. It probes beneath the surface of legal rules and uncovers why these rules developed as they did, outlines arguments for and against these rules, and examines how they work in practice. Updated with the most recent developments in the legal aspects of architectural, engineering, and the construction processes, this text is also a valuable reference for practitioners and has been cited in over twenty-five court decisions.

Legal Architecture addresses how the environment of the trial can be seen as a physical expression of our relationship with ideals of justice. It provides an alternative account of the trial, which charts the troubled history of notions of due process and participation. In contrast to visions of judicial space as neutral, Linda Mulcahy argues that understanding the factors that determine the internal design of the courthouse and courtroom are crucial to a broader and more nuanced understanding of the trial. Partitioning of the courtroom into zones and the restriction of movement within it are the result of turf wars about who can legitimately participate in the legal arena and call the judiciary to account. The gradual containment of the public, the increasing amount of space allocated to advocates, and the creation of dedicated space for journalists and the jury, all have complex histories that deserve attention. But these issues are not only of historical significance. Across jurisdictions, questions are now being asked about the internal configurations of the courthouse and courtroom, and whether standard designs meet the needs of modern participatory democracies: including questions about the presence and design of the modern dock; the ways in which new technologies threaten to change the dynamics of the trial and lead to the dematerialization of our primary site of adversarial practice; and the extent to which courthouses are designed in ways which realise their professed status as public spaces. This fascinating and original reflection on legal architecture will be of interest to socio-legal or critical scholars working in the field of legal geography, legal history, criminology, legal systems, legal method, evidence, human rights and architecture.

How are they connected?

The technological developments in the area of cyberspace have transformed e-commerce in many nations and their internet economies in the past few decades. The advances in these technologies coupled with the mushrooming of Cyberspace frauds by internet hackers and crackers have ensued in a very complicated problem for both developed and developing nations. The internet economy, being a recent development in many countries of the world, has not yet grown to its fullest measure. However, multiplicities of threats including the infringement of cyber security policies, cyber crimes, and other online business frauds have come to be the chief hitches that impede the development of e-commerce in general and the internet economy in particular. Cross-Border E-commerce underlies the increasing trends of internet economies in different countries including both the developed and developing countries. The boosting of these internet economies through cross-border e-commerce have attracted the attentions of many improper online embezzlers who always strive to industrialize the underground internet economies gained through online business frauds, cyber crimes and so many other improper online business transactions. Lots of efforts have been exerted by many countries, the major ones being the US and the UK, to halt the threats of business frauds in e-commerce and cyberspace insecurity which would otherwise jeopardize both small scale and large scale online businesses in these countries. Besides, many intergovernmental organizations including the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the African Union (AU), the Organization of American States(OAS), Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development(OECD) and United Nations Commission for Trade And Development(UNCTAD) and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa(UNECA), just to name few, have began the work of comprehensively studying the threats targeted at the development of e-commerce and related cybercrimes. In fact, the US and the EU have been praised to have done a pioneering work of regulating the legal atmosphere of cross-border e-commerce to make an effective cross-border e-commerce possible. Cross-border e-commerce has been a very recent and infant development in Ethiopia. Ethiopia does not have an orchestrated system for regulating cross-border e-commerce. This work explores the experiences of the EU and other International Organizations in regulating cross-border e-commerce and recommends Ethiopia to draw workable lessons particularly from the EU experiences to buttress the current efforts to design the legal architecture for an effective cross-border e-commerce in the country.
