La Renegociación Y La Revisión Del Negocio Jurídico Como Los Nuevos Remedios En El Contrato De Obra: Una Solución Al Problema De Los Riesgos Imprevisibles Desde Una Perspectiva Comparada, Eduardo Buendía

Eduardo Buendía De Los Santos

En materia de los contratos de obra por regla general los precios fijados entre las partes son inalterables.
Sin embargo, en las labores del contrato de obra podrían surgir sucesos imprevisibles, que
producirían nuevos gastos para el contratista. Ante estos sucesos, ¿Qué acciones podrían realizar las
partes? ¿Qué tipo de remedios ofrece el Código Civil peruano? En este artículo, el autor analiza estos temas y propone soluciones ante estos riesgos imprevisibles, todo ello sobre la base del Código Civil peruano y
un estudio comparado con el Código Civil italiano.


The Future Of Oral Arguments, Jay Tidmarsh 2017 Notre Dame Law School

The Future Of Oral Arguments, Jay Tidmarsh

Jay Tidmarsh

The civil-justice literature is replete with discussions of two phenomena: case management and the vanishing trial. These two phenomena are not unrelated. One commonly state goal of case management is to find ways, other than trial, to resolve civil disputes that find their way into court. Some observers find the movements toward case management and away from trial to be salutary; others find them disquieting. Regardless of the merits of this debate, the delivery of civil justice is undeniably evolving.

This evolution affects and changes many of the traditional attributes of American-style civil justice. The Essay examines one of these ...

The Cure Is Worse: First Circuit Circumvents False Claims Act's First-To-File Rule In United States Ex Rel. Gadbois V. Pharmerica Corp., Daniel Sorger

Boston College Law Review

In 2015, in United States ex rel. Gadbois v. PharMerica Corp., the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit held that a qui tam relator could use supplementation to cure a jurisdictional first-to-file defect in a False Claims Act (“FCA”) action. In contrast, in 2010, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in United States ex rel. Chovanec v. Apria Healthcare Group, Inc. held that relators barred by first-to-file must face dismissal without prejudice and then refile if they are to proceed. Separately, in 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C ...

Civil Law Pulsations Along The Latin American Periphery, Ángel R. Oquendo 2017 University of Miami Law School

Civil Law Pulsations Along The Latin American Periphery, Ángel R. Oquendo

University of Miami Inter-American Law Review

The civil law system shows its true face as it travels from the Continental European core to the Latin American periphery. Many of the principal institutions have found a home and thrived in the new and radically different environment. One can best study them there by contemplating how they have preserved some of their most basic features despite having transformed themselves into something else.

The notion of the civil law tradition and that of codification have themselves undergone this dialectic of transformation and preservation. So have the traditional approach to contractual interpretation and to third-party agreements and the common proscriptions ...


La Nulidad Del Negocio Jurídico Y Su Carácter Manifiesto: Reflexiones Sustanciales Y Procesales Con Ocasión Al Ix Pleno Casatorio Civil, Walter Vásquez Rebaza, Francisco Zegarra Valencia 2017 Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru

La Nulidad Del Negocio Jurídico Y Su Carácter Manifiesto: Reflexiones Sustanciales Y Procesales Con Ocasión Al Ix Pleno Casatorio Civil, Walter Vásquez Rebaza, Francisco Zegarra Valencia

Walter Vásquez Rebaza

Los autores reflexionan sobre importantes cuestiones como si se puede configurar un sistema de invalidez de los actos jurídicos solo con argumentos de pura lógica, si se puede vincular estrechamente el carácter de orden público de la nulidad con el poder de oficio del juez de apreciarlo, si vía sumarísima se puede apreciar de oficio la “nulidad” de cualquier negocio jurídico, si se requería especificar que la nulidad de oficio debe respetar el contradictorio, entre otras interrogantes.

Tradition And Culture In Africa: Practices That Facilitate Trafficking Of Women And Children, Norah Hashim Msuya 2017 Mzumbe University

Tradition And Culture In Africa: Practices That Facilitate Trafficking Of Women And Children, Norah Hashim Msuya

Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence

Many states in Africa have adopted legislative, administrative and institutional measures to combat trafficking in human beings. These measures include, among other things, the formulation and implementation of both national and regional action plans by African states to provide for comprehensive and coordinated interventions. Many African countries have also enacted an anti-trafficking legislation at the country level. Despite these measures, African women and children have been trafficked annually worldwide for purposes of forced labor, sexual exploitation, and domestic servitude. Additionally, women and children are trafficked within their countries from rural to urban areas. Misconception and abuse of African tradition and ...

Trial And Error: Lawyers And Nonlawyer Advocates, Anna E. Carpenter, Alyx Mark, Colleen Shanahan 2016 University of Tulsa College of Law

Trial And Error: Lawyers And Nonlawyer Advocates, Anna E. Carpenter, Alyx Mark, Colleen Shanahan

Anna E. Carpenter

Nonlawyer advocates are one proposed solution to the access to justice crisis and are currently permitted to practice in some civil justice settings. Theory and research suggest nonlawyers might be effective in some civil justice settings, yet we know very little, empirically, about nonlawyer practice in the United States. Using data from more than 5,000 unemployment insurance appeal hearings and interviews with lawyers and nonlawyers, this article explores how both types of representatives learn to do their work and what this means for their effectiveness. Building on recent research regarding the importance of procedural knowledge and relational expertise as ...
