    Clinical Legal Education in Asia Accessing Justice for the Underprivileged
    This book describes the history, present status and possible future models of clinical legal education (CLE) in 12 Asian jurisdictions: China, Hong Kong, India, Palestine, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Israel, Japan, Taiwan, Maldives, and South Korea. Contributors use case studies from each country to show that while CLE in Asia could initially have been described as an Anglo-Western style of legal education teaching, it has evolved past that framework. While it remains in an early development stage, CLE throughout Asia has both incorporated the core values established by traditional Western legal education theorists and developed its own Asian characteristics. Conclusions drawn from this important research have great utility for those involved with legal clinics across the globe.

  • Legal Response to Natural Disasters
    Legal Response to Natural Disasters
    Post Christchurch earthquakes and other recent natural disasters in New Zealand, highlighted the lack of comprehensive information and guidance available for professionals dealing with the legal issues that arise in the aftermath. This book has been written to address that information gap. With this objective in mind, the book draws upon legal and non-legal information from national and international sources to provide an analysis of, and commentary on, many of the legal issues that occur in the wake of natural disasters. Part One covers the methodology behind interviews and surveys carried out of those involved in natural disasters and the legal issues indentified from those interviews. Part Two looks at the particular legal problems that have arisen from the natural disasters in relation to insurance, family law, residential and commercial tenancies, taxation, media and privacy, the doctrine of frustration, crime, the environment, health and safety, and the legal position of volunteers after natural disasters have occurred. Part Two also undertakes a comparative analysis of overseas legal experiences and the lessons that can be learnt from them. Part Three deals with the application of the lessons learnt both nationally and internationally in terms of law reform relevant to natural disasters. The comprehensive scope of legal issues dealt with in the book makes it invaluable for lawyers and agencies both in New Zealand and from overseas jurisdictions who practice in areas of the law that relate to various forms of natural disaster.
