|Conflicts of Interest: Challenges and Solutions in Business, Law, Medicine, and Public Policy
Lowest new price: $61.92
Lowest used price: $14.50
List price: $87.00
This collection explores the subject of conflicts of interest. It investigates how to manage conflicts of interest, how they can affect well-meaning professionals, and how they can limit the effectiveness of corporate boards, undermine professional ethics, and corrupt expert opinion. Legal and policy responses are considered, some of which (e.g. disclosure) are shown to backfire and even fail. The results offer a sobering prognosis for professional ethics and for anyone who relies on professionals who have conflicts of interest. The contributors are leading authorities on the subject in the fields of law, medicine, management, public policy, and psychology. The nuances of the problems posed by conflicts of interest will be highlighted for readers in an effort to demonstrate the many ways that structuring incentives can affect decision making and organizations' financial well-being.

Author: Alain A. Levasseur
This short book on such a broad topic attempts to illustrate the point made by Professor V. G. Curran that difficulties in transmitting concepts across cultural-linguistic differences can be remedied by taking a cultural immersion approach for effective comparative legal analysis. (Comparative Law, CAP). This book is divided into topics most illustrative of a trans-systemic approach and begins with the History and Foundations of Contract (Part I), with an emphasis on the notion of contract and those elements of a contract considered essential to its formation. The Execution of Contracts (Part II) reflects the impact of the different cultural contexts on the nature and extent of the performance of their obligations by parties to a contract.

"Legal Practice and Cultural Diversity" considers how contemporary cultural and religious diversity challenges legal practice, how legal practice responds to that challenge, and how practice is changing in the encounter with the cultural diversity occasioned by large-scale, post-war immigration. Locating actual practices and interpretations which occur in jurisprudence and in public discussion, this volume examines how the wider environment shapes legal processes and is in turn shaped by them. In so doing, the work foregrounds a number of themes principally relating to changing norms and practices and sensitivity to cultural and religious difference in the application of the law. Comparative in approach, this study places particular cases in their widest context, taking into account international and transnational influences on the way in which actors, legal and other, respond.

|Purchasing Contract Law, UCC & Patents (Purchasing Excellence Series) (The purchasing excellence series)
Lowest used price: $139.95

Author: Mark M. Grieco
Designed exclusively for purchasing professionals, Purchasing Contract Law, UCC and Patents is a comprehensive guide that teaches the fundamentals of Purchasing Law, covering all aspects of contracts including negotiations, contract basics, laws affecting contracts and what to do if something goes wrong. This book can be used as a primer for a new purchasing agent or as a reference guide for a more established Purchasing Manager.
Purchasing Contract Law, UCC and Patents focuses on a crucial element of the purchasing process. Everything you do in Purchasing is only worth what is written in the contract. And anything can be written into a contract. But what the courts will or will not uphold is another matter. How will a purchasing professional know what is enforceable without checking with the courts each time he or she signs an agreement? That is where Purchasing Contract Law, UCC and Patents comes in.
Mark Grieco, a licensed attorney specializing in contract law, cuts through the legal mumbo jumbo and introduces you to contracts and the basic requirements that make the agreement enforceable. Along the way he covers everything from purchase orders to purchasing "credit" cards to negotiating, taking you step by step through the entire contract process, from defining the elements in a contract to the problems you may encounter when performing under a contract. Mr. Grieco also examines what to do if something goes wrong. Additionally, the author devotes and entire chapter to the explanation of common contract clauses and includes sample language for these clauses.
