In a very meaningful way, the health of a judicial system may be judged by the care with which its procedural rights are observed. Now, in a book that takes stock of this important element as it is currently used or abused in a number of the world's legal systems, eighteen outstanding scholars approach the subject through an analysis of the following factors: the theoretical and moral implications of procedural abuses the subjects who commit them the typologies of abusive practices the consequences of abusive practices Several authors report on practices in their own countries, revealing distinct evidence of a significant degree of lowered procedural standards in the United States, several European countries, Australia, Japan, and Latin America. General and final reports provide a comparative framework for an analytical study that will repay the study of anyone concerned with the fairness of our legal institutions.

English summary: There are times when European civil procedural law seems to actually encourage abuse of law and circumvention strategies. Matthias Klopfer examines if and how Europe's so-called prohibition of abuse of law principle can serve as a union-wide approach to regulate abuse of procedure. German description: Das Europaische Zivilverfahrensrecht erscheint gelegentlich als Materie, die Rechtsmissbrauch und Umgehungsstrategien geradezu begunstigt. Die Zuruckhaltung der Gerichte und der Rechtswissenschaft, einer zweckwidrigen oder arglistigen Inanspruchnahme von Verfahrensrecht Einhalt zu gebieten, wird mit den Eigenheiten des Rechtsgebiets selbst begrundet. In nicht naher definierten Ausnahmefallen spricht man sich dennoch fur einen Vorrang der Einzelfallgerechtigkeit aus, wobei der dogmatische Ansatzpunkt hierfur in aller Regel ungenannt bleibt. Vor diesem Hintergrund untersucht Matthias Klopfer, ob und in welchen Grenzen mittels des sogenannten unionsrechtlichen Missbrauchsverbots die missbrauchliche Inanspruchnahme von Vorschriften des Europaischen Zivilverfahrensrechts reguliert werden kann. Dabei stutzt er sich auf rechtsvergleichende Erkenntnisse im Mehrebenensystem des Unionsrechts, die Wirkungsweise und den Geltungsanspruch allgemeiner Rechtsgrundsatze und die Lehren der Interessenjurisprudenz.

English summary: This work is a profound analysis of the current problem of how conflicts of jurisdiction in public international law should be solved, avoided or used for one's own advantage. Timm Ebner discusses conflicts between the dispute settlement mechanisms of the WTO and the ICJ, ITLOS and environmental dispute settlement systems. In additional to dealing with current solutions for conflicts of jurisdiction, the author focuses on measures with which states can avoid and coordinate conflicts before they arise. The work includes proposals for preventive measures which will serve as guidelines for practitioners. German description: Eines der wichtigsten Elemente des derzeitigen Konstitutionalisierungsprozesses im Volkerrecht ist die gestarkte Rolle bestehender und neu geschaffener internationaler Streitbeilegungssysteme. Mit bereits uber 300 Streitfallen nimmt das Streitbeilegungsverfahren der WTO dabei neben IGH, ISGH und den sich entwickelnden umweltrechtlichen Schiedsgerichten eine herausragende Rolle ein. Welthandelsrechtliche Streitigkeiten beruhren oft weitere Bereiche des Volkerrechts, beispielsweise Seerecht und Umweltrecht, fur die andere internationale Gerichte zustandig sind. Timm Ebner erortert die hieraus folgenden Jurisdiktionskonflikte, die er u.a. am Beispiel moglicher Konflikte der WTO zum IGH und ISGH darstellt.Der Autor behandelt die Frage, wie sich Staaten schon vor einem Streitfall durch Vereinbarungen, Vorbehalte und andere praventive Massnahmen gegen Nachteile von Jurisdiktionskonflikten wappnen und ihre Vorteile optimal nutzen konnen. Anhand konkreter Beispiele zeigt er mogliche praventive Massnahmen auf.Diese Dissertation wurde mit dem Kulturpreis der E.On Bayern AG ausgezeichnet.

English summary: Exerting influence on the international jurisdiction of a court (forum shopping) and abuse of law often go hand in hand. Philipp Reuss deals with the admissibility of forum shopping attempts by debtors in cross-border insolvency proceedings. He analyses the theoretical foundations and describes the validity as well as the specific prerequisites of a prohibition of abuse of law principle in European insolvency law; an instrument which (at least partially) can be put in place against structures which are detrimental to the single market. German description: Einflussnahmen auf die internationale gerichtliche Zustandigkeit (forum shopping) durch Schuldner erfreuen sich im Rahmen der Europaischen Insolvenzverordnung (EuInsVO) reger Beliebtheit. Nicht selten ist bei diesen Manovern aber fraglich, ob dem Ziel der EuInsVO, ein fur die von der Insolvenz des Schuldners betroffenen Dritten feststell- und vorhersehbares Anknupfungssystem zu schaffen, noch entsprochen wird. Es lohnt daher, die Zulassigkeit von forum shopping im Rahmen der EuInsVO mit Blick auf einen reibungslos funktionierenden Binnenmarkt zu beleuchten und zu hinterfragen, wie binnenmarktschadlichen Gestaltungen erfolgreich begegnet werden kann. Dies unternimmt Philipp Reuss und stellt dabei das unionsrechtliche allgemeine Rechtsmissbrauchsverbot in den Fokus seiner Betrachtung. Er bereitet das seit jeher kontrovers diskutierte Rechtsmissbrauchsverbot nicht nur rechtstheoretisch auf, sondern entwickelt auch dessen hochst umstrittene Geltung und konkrete Ausgestaltung im Recht der Europaischen Union, insbesondere im unionalen Insolvenzrecht. Angesichts einer geplanten Revision der EuInsVO macht der Autor geeignete Reformvorschlage.Die Arbeit wurde mit dem Wissenschaftspreis des Gravenbrucher Kreises 2012 ausgezeichnet.

Die Teilklage ist ein bislang unterschatztes Institut des deutschen und europaischen Zivilprozessrechts. Stefan Trommler untersucht zunachst die prozessualen und materiellrechtlichen Vorzuge der Erhebung einer Teilklage anstelle einer Vollklage. Zugleich zeigt er die Grenzen dieses Instruments der Prozesstaktik auf. Wegen der Senkung von Prozesskosten erlangt die Teilklage zudem im Bereich des Kostenhilferechts Bedeutung. Die Gewahrung von Prozesskostenhilfe oder Rechtsschutzversicherungsleistungen jedoch von der Erhebung einer Teilklage abhangig zu machen, erweist sich nach einer Analyse ihrer prozessualen und materiellrechtlichen Risiken als unzulassig. Abschliessend ordnet Stefan Trommler seine Untersuchungsergebnisse in die Systematik der okonomischen Theorie des Rechts ein und macht sie fur eine okonomische Analyse des Zivilprozessrechts nutzbar.

This is detailed and consistent account of the whole CPR system, dealing with how the overriding objective and other principles underlying civil procedure are applied and how judicial discretion and case management powers are exercised. Complementing the Green Book and other leading civil procedure titles, it analyses reported and unreported case law drawing out the principles to the applied, advising on areas where clear precedent has not yet been established or where the authority is open to question. It applies principles and human rights considerations to guide practitioners on how judges are, or should be exercising their powers and provides arguments to use before them. Endorsed by Lord Woolf, this text is designed for efficient task-oriented access to key information.

The only book of its kind available in English, Civil Procedure in Japan is the most reliable and comprehensive reference on the broad subject of the Japanese civil justice system. Civil Procedure in Japan discusses the problems encountered in litigating a civil controversy in the chronological order in which they are most likely to arise. Since civil procedure, as all law, is a product of historical developments and since it cannot be understood without reference to the political structure within it is to operate, Chapter 1 presents the historical background to date of the development of court procedure. The chapter looks at Japan's political organization (Executive, Legislative, etc), the court structure, and the sources of law. Chapter 2 is devoted to a look at the world of Japanese Legal Profession including legal education and non-Japanese lawyers in Japan, while Chapter 3 is an overview of the Judiciary as a whole. Chapter 4 sets forth the basic concepts involved in the judiciary authority and its interface with other governmental authorities. Subsequent chapters deal with practical issues of civil procedure, starting with Chapter 5 through Chapter 8, the trial is traced from beginning (parties to action and pre-commencement preparation including provisional remedies) through appellate procedures. Chapters 8 and 9 deal with various judicial proceedings outside of typical civil actions. Chapter 11 specifically explains various insolvency proceedings from straight bankruptcy to corporate reorganization. Chapter 12 is devoted to the arbitration law of 2002. Chapter 13 is about various terms of the court costs. Enforcement of civil judgments is treated in detail in Chapter 14. Finally, Chapter 15 is reserved for international cooperation in litigation and sets forth Japan's bilateral arrangements for international co-operation. Furthermore, appendices include an English translation of the Code and Rules of Civil Procedure of 1996 and other important statutes, English translations of sample judgments, glossaries, bibliography, ect.

The countries of Central America, afflicted for many years by civil strife and economic stagnation, are entering a new era of peace, democracy, and economic development. Now, more than ever, it is necessary for reforms in the legal system to successfully support these changes. This volume examines two fields of law in which reforms are especially crucial: the improvement of the judicial systems and other mechanisms for resolving noncriminal disputes, and modernization of the laws governing both tangible and "intellectual" property. Among the specific topics addressed in the volume are the debate over "oralidad;" the problem of interlocutory appeals; nonjudicial procedures for resolving disputes (negotiation, mediation, conciliation, and arbitration); land and trademark registration systems; land reform in Nicaragua; the management of genetic resources; online legal databases; and legal education.

International investment law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law. It has led to the signing of thousands of agreements, mostly in the form of investment contracts and bilateral investment treaties. Also, in the last two decades, there has been an exponential growth in the number of disputes being resolved by investment arbitration tribunals. Yet the legal principles at the basis of international investment law and arbitration remain in a state of flux. Perhaps the best illustration of this phenomenon is the wide disagreement among investment tribunals on some of the core concepts underpinning the regime, such as investment, property, regulatory powers, scope of jurisdiction, applicable law, or the interactions with other areas of international law. The purpose of this book is to revisit these conceptual foundations in order to shed light on the practice of international investment law. It is an attempt to bridge the growing gap between the theory and the practice of this thriving area of international law. The first part of the book focuses on the 'infrastructure' of the investment regime or, more specifically, on the structural arrangements that have been developed to manage foreign investment transactions and the potential disputes arising from them. The second part of the book identifies the common conceptual bases of an array of seemingly unconnected practical problems in order to clarify the main stakes and offer balanced solutions. The third part addresses the main sources of 'regime stress' as well as the main legal mechanisms available to manage such challenges to the operation of the regime. Overall, the book offers a thorough investigation of the conflicting theoretical positions underlying international investment law, testing their worth by reference to concrete issues that have arisen in the jurisprudence. It demonstrates that many of the most important practical questions arising in practice can be addressed by a carefully dosed resort to theory.
