Presidential Legislation in India

Author: Shubhankar Dam
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781107039711
Release Date: 2013-12-16
Genre: Law

India has a parliamentary system. Yet the president has authority to occasionally enact legislation (or ordinances) without involving parliament. This book is a study of ordinances at the national level in India, centred around three themes. First, it tells the story of how an artefact of British constitutional history, over time, became part of India's legislative system. Second, it offers an empirical account of the ways in which presidents have resorted to ordinances in post-independence India. Third, the book analyses a range of ordinance-related questions, including some that are yet to be judicially adjudicated. In the process, the book explains why much of India's Supreme Court's jurisprudence is mistaken, and what should take its place. Overall, the book explains why the fate of parliamentary reforms in India may be tied to the reform of this provision for ordinances. Standing at the intersection of constitutional law and political science, Presidential Legislation in India offers a new frame through which to assess executive's legislative powers both in parliamentary and presidential systems.

Verwaltungsrechtsschutz durch tribunals in England

Author: Jonas Jansing
Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
ISBN: 9783847001010
Release Date: 2013-06-19
Genre: Law

Thema dieses Bandes ist der Rechtsschutz auf dem Gebiet des Verwaltungsrechts in England durch tribunals und deren Reform. Diese einfach klingende Umschreibung ist wenig aussagekräftig, da schon der Begriff »tribunal« in der englischen Rechtswissenschaft bisher nicht definiert werden konnte – zu vielfältig waren ihre Erscheinungsformen, zu unterschiedlich ihre Aufgaben und Verfahrensweisen. Mit dem Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 c.15 hat der englische Gesetzgeber erstmals den Versuch unternommen, die »administrative justice landscape« zu systematisieren und zu rationalisieren. Diese Arbeit untersucht dieses Reformvorhaben und widmet sich dabei vor allem der Frage, wie sich das Verhältnis der im Rahmen der Reformen neu geschaffenen tribunals zu den ordentlichen Gerichten darstellt, die seit jeher durch die Ausübung ihrer »supervisory jurisdiction« Verwaltungsrechtsschutz gewähren.

Law Language and Translation

Author: Rosanna Masiola
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319142715
Release Date: 2015-02-21
Genre: Law

This book is a survey of how law, language and translation overlap with concepts, crimes and conflicts. It is a transdisciplinary survey exploring the dynamics of colonialism and the globalization of crime. Concepts and conflicts are used here to mean ‘conflicting interpretations’ engendering real conflicts. Beginning with theoretical issues and hermeneutics in chapter 2, the study moves on to definitions and applications in chapter 3, introducing cattle stealing as a comparative theme and global case study in chapter 4. Cattle stealing is also known in English as ‘rustling, duffing, raiding, stock theft, lifting and predatorial larceny.’ Crime and punishment are differently perceived depending on cultures and legal systems: ‘Captain Starlight’ was a legendary ‘duffer’; in India ‘lifting’ a sacred cow is a sacrilegious act. Following the globalization of crime, chapter 5 deals with human rights, ethnic cleansing and genocide. International treaties in translation set the scene for two world wars. Introducing ‘unequal treaties’ (e.g. Hong Kong), chapter 6 highlights disasters caused by treaties in translation. Cases feature American Indians (the ‘trail of broken treaties’), Maoris (Treaty of Waitangi) and East Africa (Treaty of Wuchale).
