The Ethics and Regulation of Research with Human Subjects

Author: Carl H. Coleman

Publisher: Anderson Publishing Company

ISBN: 9781583607985

Category: Law

Page: 746

View: 3355

This new book provides a set of teaching materials that could be used in an academic course on human subject research in a broad range of professional school settings. In developing these materials, the authors were mindful that their readers would include tomorrow's advisers, managers, and regulators of researchers and research institutions. If students are to be effective in these roles, they must not only understand the history of human subject protection and the relevant ethical and regulatory issues; they must begin to think critically about the existing regulatory system and to consider the desirability of policy reform. The Ethics and Regulation of Research with Human Subjects is largely comprised of primary source documents, including governmental regulations, guidance statements, and court decisions, and excerpts from the voluminous commentary produced by scholars, advisory commissions, and others. These materials are accompanied by extensive notes and questions, which expand on some of the issues raised in the primary readings and ask the reader to think about the gaps, ambiguities, and conflicts those materials raise.

A Practical Approach to Client Interviewing, Counseling, and Decision-Making: For Clinical Programs and Practical Skills Courses

Author: G. Nicholas Herman,Jean M. Cary

Publisher: LexisNexis

ISBN: 0327178353

Category: Law

View: 1994

This book provides a practical approach to client interviewing, counseling, and decision-making. These are practical skills, not theoretical ones. Thus, the overall pedagogical approach taken by the text is to explain to students what to do and how to do it when engaging in interviewing, counseling, and decision-making with a client. This accords with the growing trend in law schools to de-emphasize heuristic theory in teaching practical skills and, instead, to teach those skills in simulated "real-life" contexts. Based on the guidance and techniques provided in the text, students will best learn the skills of interviewing and counseling by applying them in various role plays contained in the Teacher's Manual or through other role plays developed by their professor. Three other features of this book are worthy of mention: • The book is deliberately designed to be short -- to "get to the point," without unnecessary palaver. • The book provides an extensive discussion of the most pertinent provisions of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct relating to client interviewing, counseling, and decision-making. • The book discusses interviewing witnesses and counseling in certain special contexts, including counseling about settlement, counseling through the writing of opinion letters, counseling the client as a deponent, and counseling the criminal defendant.

The Counselor-at-Law: A Collaborative Approach to Client Interviewing and Counseling

Page: N.A

This eBook takes a collaborative approach to legal interviewing and counseling. It suggests that clients will be best served when lawyers and clients work together to resolve problems. Under a collaborative decision-making model, the client controls most decisions, but the lawyer structures the process and provides advice in a manner that is likely to yield wise decisions. The Counselor-at-Law explores the major approaches to legal interviewing and counseling and outlines the available research on the psychology and the sociology of clients and lawyers. This eBook explores communication and decision-making theory, memory and recall, power and submission, personality types, and ethics. From this base, the authors construct a model of interviewing and counseling based on the techniques that are effective in real-life encounters. They also include psychological type theory and explain how it can be used to improve a lawyer's communication, interviewing, and counseling skills. This innovative casebook provides students with a template for effective legal interviewing and counseling. The most effective legal counselors are the ones instilled with respect for the client, cognizant of building rapport, aware of the psychological dynamics of the lawyer-client relationship, and equipped with technical communication skills to gather information without sacrificing rapport. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Understanding Contracts

Author: Jeffrey T. Ferriell

Publisher: LexisNexis

ISBN: 0769898092

Category: Law

Page: N.A

View: 6757

This Understanding treatise is designed for first-year law students enrolled in Contracts. The text explains common law principles of contract law using cases and examples that students commonly encounter in this first-year course. It draws illustrations from the Restatement (Second) of Contracts, and from Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code as it has been adopted in all fifty states. This edition includes expanded material on the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, appropriate to a basic course in Contracts, and on modern statutes regarding electronic contracting. Understanding Contracts was written with the understanding that Contracts will be one of the most challenging courses first-year law students will take. It explains how key concepts apply in several recurring basic fact patterns. It then builds on those fact patterns to explain how the law is more difficult to apply in business transactions with more complex facts. A key feature of Understanding Contracts, that is not found in other similar books, is its conscious incorporation of basic explanations of the common business practices to which the law of contracts applies. The feature helps students, many of whom have not had any background in the business world, understand contract law in the business settings in which it frequently applies. The book also provides detailed topic headings that students can use to develop their own comprehensive course outline. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Over the past two decades, there have been a number of important developments in the areas of liability, property, and life and health insurance that have significantly changed insurance law. Accordingly, the Fourth Edition of Principles of Insurance Law has been substantially rewritten, reformatted, and refocused in order to offer the insurance law student and practitioner a broad perspective of both traditional insurance law concepts and cutting-edge legal issues affecting contemporary insurance law theory and practice. This edition not only expands the scope of topical coverage, but also segments the law of insurance in a manner more amenable to study, as well as facilitating the recombination and reordering of the chapters as desired by individual instructors. The Fourth Edition of Principles of Insurance Law includes new and expanded treatment of important insurance law developments, including: • The critical role of insurance binders as temporary forms of insurance as illustrated in the World Trade Center property insurance disputes resulting from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001; • The continuing debate between "legal formalists" and "legal functionalists" for "the heart and soul" of insurance contract law; • What constitutes a policyholder's "reasonable expectation" regarding coverage; • The current property and liability insurance "crisis"; • Risk management and self-insurance issues; • Emerging, and frequently conflicting, case law concerning the intersection of insurance law and federal anti-discrimination regulation; • Ongoing interpretive battles over the preemptive scope of ERISA; • The United States Supreme Court ruling that a California statute attempting to leverage European insurers into honoring commitments to Holocaust era policies is preempted by the Executive's power over foreign affairs; • The State Farm v. Campbell decision, which struck down a $145 million punitive damages award in an insurance bad faith claim as well as setting more restrictive parameters for the recovery of punitive damages; • New issues over the dividing line between "tangible" property typically covered under a property insurance policy and "intangible" property, which is typically excluded - an issue of increasing importance in the digital and cyber age; • Refinement of liability insurance law regarding trigger of coverage, duty to defend, reimbursement of defense costs, and apportionment of insurer and policyholder responsibility for liability payments; • The difficult-to-harmonize decisions concerning when a loss arises out of the "use" of an automobile; • Insurer bad faith and the availability, if any, of actions against a policyholder for "reverse bad faith"; and • The degree to which excess insurance and reinsurance may be subject to modified approaches to insurance policy construction.
