Dictionary of International Trade Law is the first of its kind book. This Dictionary defines and explains in detail hundreds of terms - common and uncommon ones - used in the field, from the "ACU" and "CMAA" to "TIFA" and the "WCO." Many entries include organizational charts (e.g., the structure of the new Department of Homeland Security) and tables (e.g., of precedent-setting cases on zeroing). Many entries also provide references for further research. Notably, the Dictionary has three Annexes - • SAnnex A contains 25 maps, of the world, regions, and countries, from the Artic to Zambia, not only showing states and provinces (e.g., in Brazil and India), but also highlighting disputed territories (e.g., in Kashmir) ● Annex B sets out research tools, such as tables on milestones in Chinese history (from early dynasties through modern legal reforms), EU institutions, U.S. trade statutes, and useful websites on trade law. • SAnnex C has data on U.S. FTAs, including votes by political party in Congress, on immediate versus deferred duty-free treatment for goods, market access for services, and government procurement thresholds. In sum, the 600-page Dictionary aims to help students, scholars, and practitioners through the complex jargon of trade. Like the Textbook, International Trade Law: Interdisciplinary Theory and Practice, the Dictionary is inter-disciplinary, paying special attention to practical terms and theoretical concepts from international economics and development studies. Among the highlights of the second edition of the Dictionary are: • Several dozen brand New and Expansive entries for even more thorough coverage! • Updated and expanded material for hundreds of existing entries. • Several hundred Suggestions for Further Research. • Compilation, synthesis, and analysis of data on every one of America's Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and of every one of Japan's FTAs, all thoroughly updated since the first edition. • Updated historical information about milestones in the economic development of the European Union (EU) and China. • Revised maps for every region of the world, and several major countries. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Environmental Damage In International And Comparative Law

This study considers the problems of defining and valuing "environmental damage" from the perspective of international and comparative law. The need for a broad and systematic evaluation of this issue is illustrated by the number of topics presently on the international law-making agenda towhich it is relevant, including the UN Compensation Commission's decisions on compensation for environmental losses suffered by Kuwait in the Gulf War, nuclear and oil pollution liability regimes, the development of an environmental liability protocol to the Antarctic Treaty and other agreements onbio-safety and genetically modified organisms. It is thus an important element in contemporary efforts to strengthen legal remedies for environmental harm which does not necessarily come within traditional categories of legally protected personal or property rights. The contributors include experts in national and international law, civil and common law, as well as in the laws of developed and developing states, an economist and a member of the UN Compensation Commission.

This text is a collection of writings on assigned topics by some scholars and lecturers in the Faculty of Law at Benson Idahosa University and those invited from outside the university. The idea to write a text for use in the study of legal methods for law students was borne out of the desire to present a range of updated material in this area of study. The focus of this text is Nigeria. The book is written in simple, easy-to-understand language, and meant essentially for law students in the first year of the five year course in Law, as structured by the National Universities Commission (NUC). Nevertheless, persons who are in need of information or education on different aspects of the Nigerian legal process will also find aspects of the text useful. The contributors come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, which is reflected in their styles of presentation. However, each has endeavoured to present the assigned topic in such a form as to enhance comprehension by the primary beneficiaries. The inclusion of chapters on advocacy and mooting skills, as well as examination skills and strategies, makes this text unique, and allows it to offer more detailed analysis than existing texts in Nigeria provide.
