Furchtbare Juristen

FUEGO


Das 1987 erschienene Standardwerk, in dem zum ersten Mal sehr sachlich und fundiert erzählt wurde, wie willfährig sich die deutsche Justiz unter den Nazis verhielt und wie wenig Widerstand es gegen die neuen Machthaber gab, liegt nun um einige neue Kapitel erweitert wieder vor. Ein Klassiker, der frei von Juristenjargon die ganze unselige Geschichte unseres Rechtssystems im 20. Jahrhundert präzise beschreibt.

Legal Literacy

Athabasca University Press | OPEL (Open Paths to Enriched Learning)


To understand how the legal system works, students must consider the law in terms of its structures, processes, language, and modes of thought and argument—in short, they must become literate in the field. Legal Literacy fulfills this aim by providing a foundational understanding of key concepts such as legal personhood, jurisdiction, and precedent, and by introducing students to legal research and writing skills. Examples of cases, statutes, and other legal materials support these concepts.

While Legal Literacy is an introductory text, it also challenges students to consider critically the system they are studying. Touching on significant socio-legal issues such as access to justice, legal jargon, and plain language, Zariski critiques common legal traditions and practices, and analyzes what it means “to think like a lawyer.” As such, the text provides a sound basis for those who wish to pursue further studies in law or legal studies as well as those seeking a better understanding of how the legal field relates to the society that it serves.

A former litigator in Edmonton, Alberta, Archie Zariski has been teaching law and legal studies since 1991, including classes on mediation, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), evidence, and legal literacy. He is co-editor of The Multi-Tasking Judge: Comparative Judicial Dispute Resolution (Thomson Reuters).
