Human Rights Today - 60 Years of the Universal Declaration by Miodrag A. Jovanovic (Editor); Ivana Krstic (Editor)This three part book is a collection of updated papers, presented at the conference "Universal Declaration - 60 Years After," which was convened at the Faculty of Law, University of Belgrade, in September 2008. Issues in human rights law are critically assessed by a distinguished group of academics, researchers, and practitioners. The first section addresses general issues of human rights theory and practice, such as the relation of human rights politics and the international rule of law, the human rights claim to universality, the constitutionalization of international law through human rights instruments, as well as problems of human rights culture and/or ideology. The second section examines the role of domestic and international courts for the effective protection of human rights, as well as the specific techniques for implementation of human rights law. The final section is dedicated to developments, such as the growing importance of various forms of minority protection for the general body of human rights norms, as well as the role that human dignity as a prime constitutional value plays in certain legal systems. It also addresses widely debated challenges for human rights law: its status in times of war and in the global fight against terrorism.

Nonprofit Law Dictionary by Bruce R. HopkinsA focused, invaluable guide to nonprofit legal terminology and definitions The Bruce R.

Hopkins, the country's leading expert in nonprofit law, draws upon 45 years of practice to deliver a true dictionary reference for attorneys specializing in nonprofit law and tax law.

Modeled after a conventional dictionary, this book offers quick navigation to the information of interest, and points you toward the other Hopkins guides that provide more in-depth information should you require it. The devil is in the details, and nowhere is that statement truer than in the legal profession. Incorrect interpretation of a single phrase can cause consequences for both client and attorney, and verbiage may be intentionally vague with unexpectedly broad or narrow definitions. This guide gives you the most commonly accepted interpretations of terminology related specifically to nonprofit law, so you can feel confident in the quality of service you provide to your clients. Stay up to date on the latest in nonprofit law Confirm the accepted definitions of legal terms and phrases Learn where to turn for deeper guidance on specific topics Gain expert insight into obscure and complex definitions Stop spending time wading through textbooks and case law, only to wonder whether or not the information you eventually found applies to nonprofit law in the same way.

Hopkins Nonprofit Law Dictionary is an indispensable reference that gives you the information you need quickly and easily.
