Legal Architecture addresses how the environment of the trial can be seen as a physical expression of our relationship with ideals of justice. It provides an alternative account of the trial, which charts the troubled history of notions of due process and participation. In contrast to visions of judicial space as neutral, Linda Mulcahy argues that understanding the factors that determine the internal design of the courthouse and courtroom are crucial to a broader and more nuanced understanding of the trial. Partitioning of the courtroom into zones and the restriction of movement within it are the result of turf wars about who can legitimately participate in the legal arena and call the judiciary to account. The gradual containment of the public, the increasing amount of space allocated to advocates, and the creation of dedicated space for journalists and the jury, all have complex histories that deserve attention. But these issues are not only of historical significance. Across jurisdictions, questions are now being asked about the internal configurations of the courthouse and courtroom, and whether standard designs meet the needs of modern participatory democracies: including questions about the presence and design of the modern dock; the ways in which new technologies threaten to change the dynamics of the trial and lead to the dematerialization of our primary site of adversarial practice; and the extent to which courthouses are designed in ways which realise their professed status as public spaces. This fascinating and original reflection on legal architecture will be of interest to socio-legal or critical scholars working in the field of legal geography, legal history, criminology, legal systems, legal method, evidence, human rights and architecture.

Law for Architects offers students, single practitioners, and small- to medium-sized firms a concise and handy guide to what they can do to prevent legal problems, prepare for legal issues they may encounter, and navigate legal requirements and restrictions of the profession. Architecture students complete schooling with virtually no education in the legal aspects of running an architecture business; the ins-and-outs of legal practice as it relates to building and architecture receive little to no attention in professional practice courses all students are required to take. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Handbook (an 800-page professional reference for students and architects) offers only a handful of pages dedicated to legal issues. This guide will fill in the gaps in every architect's legal knowledge.

This book argues that classical natural law jurisprudence provides a superior answer to the questions “What is law?” and “How should law be made?” rather than those provided by legal positivism and “new” natural law theories. What is law? How should law be made? Using St. Thomas Aquinas’s analogy of God as an architect, Brian McCall argues that classical natural law jurisprudence provides an answer to these questions far superior to those provided by legal positivism or the “new” natural law theories. The Architecture of Law explores the metaphor of law as an architectural building project, with eternal law as the foundation, natural law as the frame, divine law as the guidance provided by the architect, and human law as the provider of the defining details and ornamentation. Classical jurisprudence is presented as a synthesis of the work of the greatest minds of antiquity and the medieval period, including Cicero, Artistotle, Gratian, Augustine, and Aquinas; the significant texts of each receive detailed exposition in these pages. Along with McCall’s development of the architectural image, he raises a question that becomes a running theme throughout the book: To what extent does one need to know God to accept and understand natural law jurisprudence, given its foundational premise that all authority comes from God? The separation of the study of law from knowledge of theology and morality, McCall argues, only results in the impoverishment of our understanding of law. He concludes that they must be reunited in order for jurisprudence to flourish. This book will appeal to academics, students in law, philosophy, and theology, and to all those interested in legal or political philosophy.

This original book is a comprehensive, richly documented and critical examination of laws applicable to Anglican cathedrals in England, some of the most iconic monuments in the national heritage and centres of spiritual and cultural capital. Law is the missing link in the emerging field of cathedral studies. The book fills this gap. It explores historical antecedents of modern cathedral law, traces aspects of them that still endure, and explains the law with particular reference to the recommendations of the Archbishops’ Commission on Cathedrals 1994 which led to the most radical changes in the legal history of these churches since the Reformation, culminating in the Cathedrals Measure 1999 and associated later legislation. The book compares the domestic constitutions and statutes of all the cathedrals of the Church of England today – old foundations, new foundations and parish church cathedrals - as well as policies and guidelines applicable to or adopted by them. Whilst national law acts as a fundamental unifying force, there is considerable diversity as between these in terms of the breadth and depth of their coverage of topics. In the socio-legal tradition, the book also explores through interviews with clergy and others, at half of the cathedrals, how laws are experienced in practice. These reveal that whilst much of the law is perceived as working well, there are equally key areas of concern. To this end, the book proposes areas for further research and debate with a view to possible reform. Taking an architectural feature of cathedrals as the starting point for each chapter, from cathedral governance through mission, ministry, music and education to cathedral property, what emerges is that law and architecture have a symbiotic relationship so that a cathedral is itself a form of juristecture.

The technological developments in the area of cyberspace have transformed e-commerce in many nations and their internet economies in the past few decades. The advances in these technologies coupled with the mushrooming of Cyberspace frauds by internet hackers and crackers have ensued in a very complicated problem for both developed and developing nations. The internet economy, being a recent development in many countries of the world, has not yet grown to its fullest measure. However, multiplicities of threats including the infringement of cyber security policies, cyber crimes, and other online business frauds have come to be the chief hitches that impede the development of e-commerce in general and the internet economy in particular. Cross-Border E-commerce underlies the increasing trends of internet economies in different countries including both the developed and developing countries. The boosting of these internet economies through cross-border e-commerce have attracted the attentions of many improper online embezzlers who always strive to industrialize the underground internet economies gained through online business frauds, cyber crimes and so many other improper online business transactions. Lots of efforts have been exerted by many countries, the major ones being the US and the UK, to halt the threats of business frauds in e-commerce and cyberspace insecurity which would otherwise jeopardize both small scale and large scale online businesses in these countries. Besides, many intergovernmental organizations including the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the African Union (AU), the Organization of American States(OAS), Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development(OECD) and United Nations Commission for Trade And Development(UNCTAD) and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa(UNECA), just to name few, have began the work of comprehensively studying the threats targeted at the development of e-commerce and related cybercrimes. In fact, the US and the EU have been praised to have done a pioneering work of regulating the legal atmosphere of cross-border e-commerce to make an effective cross-border e-commerce possible. Cross-border e-commerce has been a very recent and infant development in Ethiopia. Ethiopia does not have an orchestrated system for regulating cross-border e-commerce. This work explores the experiences of the EU and other International Organizations in regulating cross-border e-commerce and recommends Ethiopia to draw workable lessons particularly from the EU experiences to buttress the current efforts to design the legal architecture for an effective cross-border e-commerce in the country.
