The law of obligations concerns the legal rights and obligations owed between persons. Three main categories form the Common Law of Obligations: tort, contractual enrichment and unjust enrichment. This digest provides an introduction to tort law: the law that recognizes and responds to civil misconduct. The material is arranged in two parts. The first part includes §§1 to 11 and deals with intentional and dignified offences as well as the theories and general objectives of tort law. Part II covers §§12-25 and deals with no-fault compensation schemes, negligence, harassment, strict liability and the place of tort law in our broader legal systems.

As a result, we have included not only cases, but also the text of the rules and reformulations as well as concise explanations of the relevant law. Each chapter of the book deals with a different topic in the following format. First, it clarifies in a clear and concise manner the law applicable to this issue. Then provide the relevant text of all laws, model rules, sections of the new version of the Lawyers Act or other sources with a link to an open source version of the full text, if available. It contains one or more heavily edited cases intended to illustrate the application of the law in question, with a link to an open source version of the full text of the case. Each case is preceded by a brief summary of its facts, reasoning and conduct, followed by questions to identify topics for further study or discussion.
Finally, it includes citations of law journal articles and other documents relevant to the law in question, with links to open source versions of these documents, where appropriate.

It is licensed under a Creative Commons license and may be used in whole or in part for free for non-commercial purposes.
The first chapter presents the general context of global corruption: its nature and extent, as well as some views on its historical, social, economic and political dimensions. Each subsequent chapter sets out international standards and requirements for combating bribery, in particular in the United Nations Convention against Bribery (UNCAC) and the OECD Convention on Bribery of Foreign Public Officials (OECD Convention). The laws of the United States and the United Kingdom are then presented as examples of how these standards and requirements of the Convention are met in two influential jurisdictions. Finally, Canadian law is set out. For example, a professor from Africa, Australia, New Zealand, or English-speaking countries in Asia and Europe has an almost complete textbook – for example, that professor can delete the Canadian sections of that book and insert the laws and practices of their home country in their place. Although this book is primarily intended for a law course on global corruption, it will be of interest and benefit to professors who teach courses on corruption from other academic disciplines, as well as lawyers and other anti-corruption practitioners.

The impetus for this volume has been a variety of conversations about pedagogy and teaching related to our litigation courts. Based on these conversations, we have identified four main streams or needs of our colleagues: First, many of us bring more “political science” to our classes or want to bring it with us, although we also want to avoid the high cost of reinventing successful existing courses to do so. Second, our programs all require a course with a political methodology, and we want to reinforce these lessons in our substantive courses. We want to foster our students` understanding of how to read and understand research studies and create their own research questions. Third, we want our courses to be as up-to-date as possible. And fourth, we wanted to find a way to reduce the cost of our courses because we see so many students struggling with the high cost of a college degree. This volume (as well as all future editions) addresses each of these concerns. Open Judicial Politics is a compilation of new and original research in justice policy written specifically for the undergraduate audience, thus providing accessible examples of political science research that also address some of the most recent concerns and controversies in our field.
