Attorneys in Litigation

Findley, Jessica Deborah January 2010 (has links)
Trial advocacy is an important aspect of our legal system, and is critical for ensuring a fair trial. This dissertation considers the recommended trial advocacy techniques for attorney demeanor, verbal communications, paralinguistic communications, kinesic communication, attorney-client relationships, and storytelling in light of the available science. First, each chapter reviews the trial strategies recommended by trial commentators. Next, each chapter explores scientific research relevant to the advocacy recommendations by legal commentators and identifies the limitations in their recommendations. In addition, research-based advocacy techniques are suggested for improving trial advocacy.

Framtidsfullmakter och traditionella fullmakter

Danielsson, Lisa, Nilsson, Marie Louise, Scholander, Anton January 2019 (has links)
Någon gång i livet drabbas av ett försämrat hälsotillstånd är mycket vanligt, men vilken typoch omfattning sjukdomen genererar varierar givetvis. Den 1 juli 2017 stiftades en lag omframtidsfullmakter som är tänkt att vara ett komplement till ställföreträdarskap och detraditionella fullmakterna. Dessa är tänkta att användas likt en fullmakt men den skillnadenatt framtidsfullmakten kommer skrivas i förtid, innan den ska träda i kraft. Detta för attunderlätta den dagen man blir försatt i en varaktig sjukdom och inte längre kan råda översina ekonomiska eller personliga angelägenheter. Denna nya lag kommer att ge utrymme förden enskilde att själv låta besluta över vem som ska utses som den framtida fullmaktshavarenoch även omfattningen kring behörigheten samt befogenheten kring fullmakten. Uppsatsensgrund syftar till att göra en komparativ utredning avseende framtidsfullmakter och de olikatyper av traditionella fullmakter samt ställföreträdarskap som finns. Uppsatsen syftar äventill att ta fram de fördelar respektive nackdelar och klargöra vad som skiljerframtidsfullmakter från de traditionella fullmakter och ställföreträdarskap som finns idag. / At some point in a lifetime it is likely that one would be affected by an impaired healthcondition, of course to which degree and affect varies. The 1 of july 2017 a law wasestablished concerning future power of attorney and it was meant to complement the alreadyexisting laws about trustees and traditional power of attorneys. Where the execution isthought to be similar as of an ordinary power of attorney but in this instance it is meant tobe written in beforehand, before it is meant to be used, to facilitate in a situation where onecan not care for their personal and economical matters because of a lasting reduced state ofhealth. This new law will allow the individual capacity to alone decide who to be appointedas the future power of attorney and also the extent to what this attorney may do and whatauthority it has to do what. This study aims to do a comparative investigation of future powerof attorney and power of attorney and other forms of deputies and trustees. It also aims toillustrate the advantages respectively disadvantages, also similarities and differencesbetween the different kinds.

Advancing National Policy in the Courts: The Use of Multistate Litigation by State Attorneys General

Nolette, Paul Brian January 2011 (has links)
Thesis advisor: Shep Melnick / This dissertation examines the use of coordinated multistate lawsuits by state attorneys general (SAGs) as a tool to create national policy. Entrepreneurial SAGs have increasingly employed multistate litigation against private industry and the federal government, reaching numerous out-of-court settlements and favorable court judgments. These lawsuits have imposed new national regulatory requirements across several policy areas and have challenged regulatory regimes established by Congress and federal agencies. This study investigates three interrelated questions about multistate SAG litigation: (1) how SAGs have used this litigation to achieve national regulatory goals, (2) why this activity has increased over time, and (3) what the consequences are for American politics and policy. Employing both qualitative and quantitative analysis, I examine these questions through two stages. First, I present an analysis of an original dataset containing SAG lawsuits and legal settlements in four key policy areas covering 1980 through 2009. Second, I examine three case studies involving pharmaceutical litigation, air pollution control litigation, and lawsuits against the firearms industry. I find that changes in federal law instituted by Congress and the federal courts have created new opportunity points for SAGs, helping spur a dramatic increase of multistate litigation. The SAGs built upon earlier successful efforts, including their blockbuster settlement with the tobacco industry in 1998, to create new avenues of collaboration among their fellow SAGs, public interest groups, and the private bar. The result has been to substantially alter the regulatory landscape in areas including prescription drug pricing, pharmaceutical advertising, and greenhouse gas emissions. By shedding light on this significant form of "regulation through litigation," this dissertation illustrates how SAGs have seized upon the trend towards adversarial legalism in America by using the courts to achieve policy goals when attempts to do so in other venues fail. This runs contrary to a line of scholarly literature suggesting that litigation and courts have a limited impact on significant social change. This study also demonstrates how American federalism, commonly thought to serve as a restraint on the federal government by diffusing power, can be used by skillful political actors to create more energetic government and stronger national regulation. / Thesis (PhD) — Boston College, 2011. / Submitted to: Boston College.

Transportbesorgers en werkwerwing : 'n waardegedrewe transformasie geleentheid vir die prokureursprofessie / deur Johannes Wilhelmus Wessels

Wessels, Johannes Wilhelmus January 2004 (has links)
Touting, as practised by conveyancers in the four Northern provinces of South Africa, is reaching alarming proportions. Owing to the institutional nature of the attorneys' profession, rules and regulations are applied to establish and manage the ethical behaviour of members of the profession. The question arises as to whether there could be an alternative way of management with a value system and ethical conduct as the underlying principles. According to the organisational behavioural science, the alternative method is to manage an organisation by means of value driven leadership style. The research questions of this study are: 1. Which teleological and deontological values will be suitable as elements of a shared value system for the attorneys' profession? In order to reach this goal, the following objectives are established: 2. To obtain exhaustive knowledge of the concepts 'values' and 'value-driven' by means of a literature study and empirical research in order to understand the phenomenon touting, as practised in the attorneys' profession. This objective was reached through an investigation of the concepts values and value-driven. The focus was particularly on the following aspects: J the development of the concept values J the principles of values and ethics 4 the division and classification of the concept values 4 the role and application of the concept values in management science and J values and leadership Based on the results of the limited availability sample, the empirical findings were that the respondents are ethically sensitive. It is evident that touting is a deliberate and unconstitutional disregard of instrumental and terminal values, and that the promotion of self-interest leads to the detriment of the principal, the profession and the public. 3. To establish the shared values of the attorneys' profession from the perspective of the deontology and teleology. This objective was reached through a literature study into the concepts value driven and shared values. From this investigation, it is evident that a relationship no doubt exists between terminal and instrumental values on the one hand and teleological and deontological values on the other hand. The investigation further found that specific effective teleological and deontological values are contained in the sources of knowledge of the attorneys' profession. These values can be used to develop a shared value system for the attorneys' profession. The results of the study, based on a limited availability sample indicate that the majority of respondents could not identify the critical value, namely to guard against self-interest. The absence of this value implies touting within the context of this investigation. 4. To identify and describe the ways and means of the transformation of the attorneys' profession from a rule-and-regulation orientation to a value-driven orientation with regard to ethical behaviour. In order to reach this objective, an empirical investigation was undertaken into the perceptions of respondents of a specific availability sample in regard of the existing rules applicable to ethical behaviour and their perception of the Law Societies of South Africa. The empirical investigation in regard to the perceptions show that a substantial portion of the respondents perception of the Law Societies of South Africa is negative - founded on the reality experience that the Law Societies of South Africa is not capable of cracking down on touting. The literature study demonstrates that the attorneys' profession is a learning organisation with an institutional culture. Transformation from a rule-and-regulation orientation to a value-driven orientation in regard to values and ethics, among others, requires a transformation of way of thinking in regard to basic assumptions concerning values and ethics. In summarising, it can be stated that this investigation produced evidence that effective teleological and deontological values are contained in the sources of knowledge of the attorneys' profession, that can be used to create a shared value system for the profession. / Thesis (M.B.A.)--North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2005.
