Drug Treatment Courts

Der suchtkranke Täter und der lösungszentrierte Verfahrensansatz im angloamerikanischen Strafrecht

Edgar Güldü beleuchtet das Modell der Drug Treatment Courts und – gemeinsam mit der Co-Autorin Frau Meryem Güldü – die zugrunde liegende Rechtstheorie. Der Autor zeigt, dass es sich bei den als Drug Courts bezeichneten Gerichtsprogrammen um einen neuartigen Diversionsansatz gegenüber suchtkranken Straftätern in den USA und den Ländern des Common Laws handelt. Drogengerichte heben sich nach Auffassung des Autors gegenüber dem Therapievorrang in unserer Rechtsordnung durch die Einbindung der Strafverfahrensbeteiligten in den Behandlungs- und Resozialisierungsprozess ab. Damit stehen die Drogengerichtsprogramme für eine sogenannte Problem-Solving Justice, einen lösungszentrierten Verfahrensansatz, der bisher zu Unrecht kaum Beachtung erfahren hat.

Administrative Courts in Indonesia

A Socio-legal Study

In 1991 Indonesia introduced a system of administrative courts that was to contribute to establishing the rule of law in Indonesia and to provide recourse for citizens against unlawful administrative behaviour. This book evaluates the performance of the administrative court system. It explains why the courts were established in spite of the Indonesian state's authoritarian nature, and why and to what extent the system is a Dutch legal transplant. It analyses the jurisdictionary powers of the courts and how the courts have used them. It then proceeds to explain the unbalanced nature of the record presented, by analysing factors inside and outside the administrative court organisation which influence its performance. These include budgetary deficits, lack of training opportunities, career manipulation, corruption, lack of government support, and many other non-legal issues. Finally, the author provides a number of recommendations for change, many of which may also be of use to other developing countries.

In den neuen Medien verwischen die Grenzen zwischen Privatheit und Öffentlichkeit immer mehr und plötzlich funktioniert die Rechtsprechung nicht mehr, die sich an alten Rechtsregeln orientiert. Im Internet ist es daher schwer ein Recht durchzusetzen. Karl-Heinz Ladeur erklärt die Hindernisse der privaten Rechtsprechung in den Medien und stellt einen Übergang zu einer Gesellschaft der Netzwerke, in der Daten als privates Eigentum geschützt werden müssen und eine rechtliche Vertretung brauchen, fest.

Geordnete Freiheit - "Levels of Scrutiny" in der Rechtsprechung des U.S. Supreme Courts

Über die letzten zwei Jahrhunderte hat der U.S. Supreme Court ein System gestaffelter Prüfungsmaßstäbe – "Levels of Scrutiny" – entwickelt, mit deren Hilfe das Gericht eine im Wesentlichen der deutschen Verhältnismäßigkeitskontrolle angenäherte Technik der Güterabwägung vornimmt. Diese Untersuchung soll einen Beitrag zum Verständnis der US-amerikanischen Grundrechtskonzeption leisten. Sie gliedert sich in sechs Teile, in denen der Autor in einem ersten Schritt die materiellen Grundlagen der "Levels of Scrutiny" darstellt, bevor er in einem zweiten Schritt die Umsetzung in die Praxis analysiert. Die Analyse erfolgt dabei stets im Zusammenhang mit einem kritischen Rechtsvergleich zum heimischen Grundsatz der Verhältnismäßigkeit.

Zuni and the Courts

A Struggle for Sovereign Land Rights

Three decades ago - years after most tribes had filed land claims - the Zuni initiated legal battles related to aboriginal claims, rights, and use that few experts thought they could win. Yet by 1991 they had achieved three major victories. Providing a new overview of these cases and Zuni history, Richard Hart has gathered together essays written by many of those who testified for the Zuni - historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and scientists - as well as commentary from the tribe's lawyers. The authors simplify the complex nature of the testimony, making it accessible to a wide audience.

U.S. Federal Courts

Attorney Admission Requirements

U.S. Federal Courts: Attorney Admission Requirements provides a comprehensive analysis of the specific attorney admission requirements of over 200 federal courts. Coverage includes the Supreme Court, courts of appeals, district courts, bankruptcy courts, bankruptcy appellate panels, subject-matter specific courts, military courts, territorial courts, and courts of the freely associated states. Topics include reciprocity, whether state bar membership is required for specific district courts, admission fees, renewal requirements, examinations, experience prerequisites, sponsors, certificates of good standing, pro hac vice admission, which courts allow non-attorneys or attorneys licensed in foreign countries to become members, specialty bar associations and more. Contact information for each court is included. While one might be inclined to think the rules for bar admission across the U.S. federal court system would be uniform, this is simply not the case. In some federal courts an attorney can be admitted in a matter of days with minimal effort and little to no expense. Other courts have established independent examinations, initial and recurring fees, sponsorship requirements, etc. Anyone considering a multijurisdictional federal practice will find the information extremely useful.

Specializing the Courts

Most Americans think that judges should be, and are, generalists who decide a wide array of cases. Nonetheless, we now have specialized courts in many key policy areas. Specializing the Courts provides the first comprehensive analysis of this growing trend toward specialization in the federal and state court systems. Lawrence Baum incisively explores the scope, causes, and consequences of judicial specialization in four areas that include most specialized courts: foreign policy and national security, criminal law, economic issues involving the government, and economic issues in the private sector. Baum examines the process by which court systems in the United States have become increasingly specialized and the motives that have led to the growth of specialization. He also considers the effects of judicial specialization on the work of the courts by demonstrating that under certain conditions, specialization can and does have fundamental effects on the policies that courts make. For this reason, the movement toward greater specialization constitutes a major change in the judiciary.
