The laws of education safeguard teachers’ rights and obligations. Its sources are from the education legislations, contract law, torts, administrative and constitutional law, criminal law, employment law and human rights law. These laws govern the professional conduct of educators, administrators and educational institutions, established national systems of education and legalization of education across nations. A comparative analysis of law of education of United States and Malaysia from the common law, civil law and Islamic law perspectives would enlighten educators and administrators on their educational practices and how to handle diverse legal issues affecting them. Knowledge of the laws of education is highly recommended to teachers, principals, administrators and educational institutions for it enhances professionalism, quality assurance and educational governance in teaching and learning.

The twenty-first century global world order creates fundamental challenges for the American model of legal education. This professional model cannot focus only on one domestic legal system isolated from the rest of the world. American law students need a realistic exposure to a transnational legal perspective in the contemporary global legal environment. This objective can be achieved in three stages. The first step requires a first year introductory course setting the foundation in public and private international law with the fundamental understanding of the comparative law methodology to grasp legal problems and institutions transcending through national boundaries. In the second stage, the transnational perspective should be emphasized in every domestic course, in the expanded coverage of public and private international law, and in the comparative law curriculum. Finally, in the third stage, law students should have the opportunity to apply their transnational learning experience by selecting an intellectually and professionally stimulating topic for academic research. Through this research, the student should focus not only on developing a thesis and writing a research quality seminar paper, but also on the potential for publication of the paper in law reviews and other legal journals. This concise Guide to Legal Research and Writing from the Transnational Perspective can be used as a practical tool in the critical third stage of the transnational legal education proces...
The book explores the broad range of legal, personal, social, political and historical foundations of international law. The book is a collective effort of qualified authors- law school deans and professors, national and international court judges, young and old international law scholars and government lawyers from varying legal cultures across the oceans of the world, representing diverse legal philosophical and corresponding practices bringing their stories to life, telling tales helpful for those well-acquainted with the issues. Although one book of Liber Amicorum cannot address all the important issues in the vast arena of international law, these essays provide a rich and lucid understanding of issues of modern public international and comparative law. The beauty of the book lies in the fact that the issues discussed in the compendium by the diverse authors though familiar to comparatists, are given perspectives different from the usual Euro-American centrist standpoint that dominated the current writings in international law. The collected essays will be found most useful as an informative tool in the discovery of progressive development of international law as well as in the study of comparative legal systems." *** The legal essays contained in this treatise on various important issues of public international and comparative law are interesting, well researched, and written from multi-disciplinary perspectives by very well-qualified legal scholars from different backg...
Comparative Law has traditionally been a Western and modern discipline. This statement has three meanings: 1) The theoretical mainstream of the discipline has been based on Western schools of thought rooted in the modernity project; 2) The comparatist lawyers from “developing countries” have transplanted uncritically the mainstream schools of Comparative Law, reinforcing the modernity project; 3) The critical and heterodox approaches to Comparative Law have been promoted, basically, from a Western perspective, and the approaches are very heterogeneous and unconnected. This paper is an attempt to change this reality through the fulfillment of three aims. The first one is to deconstruct the mainstream schools of Comparative Law, understand their limits and how they have been applied in Latin America. The second one is to deconstruct the non-orthodox schools in order to find common elements that can help to shape a critical project from a Latin America perspective. The last one is to propose a basis for a critical project for Comparative Legal Studies.

The third edition of Comparative Law: Law, Reality and Society does not deal with conventional comparative law. Rules and structures of one system are not set out against those of another for contrast. Rather, rules particular or general, are examined to explain why they are as they are, and how they came to be. The author does not accept that to a great extent law reflects society or the power of the ruling elite. Chapter one serves as both introduction and conclusions. The conclusions are: 1) Governments and rulers are not much interested in developing law, especially not private law, but leave this to others to whom they do not grant power to make law; 2) Even famous lawmakers are seldom interested in a particular social issue in law or in giving law certainty; 3) Borrowing, even mindless, is the name of the legal game. Chapters range from grand legislation (the Ten Commandments and Napoleon's code civil) to unrecognized law in action and daily life (Jesus and the Samaritan woman, Jesus and the adulteress, the claim that Julius Caesar descended from a slave). Other chapters deal with judges' passivity in giving needlessly a judgment they claimed was unjust, to deciding against the judge's own theoretical and practical position (Somerset's Case). Likewise stressed is the difficulty of developing law fit for the society, and of understanding foreign legal thinking. The survival of law in different circumstances for centuries and also in a different place is emphasized. The c...
As an education law student in Prof de Waal''s courses, Wendy shared her concern about the nature and extent of bullying at especially South African public schools. Her distress culminated in a well-written Masters in Education Law. This publication is an in- depth comparative study of the strategies used to counteract bullying at schools. It provides an international perspective in that studies completed at South African schools provide an African perspective; Australian research is used to provide an Oceanian perspective; Japanese research to provide an Asian perspective; and research conducted in England is used to provide a European perspective on bullying at schools.
Sir Henry James Sumner Maine was an English comparative jurist and historian. His thesis in Ancient Law states that law and society developed "from status to contract". In ancient times people were bound by status to their particular group. In modern times people are autonomous agents and are free to make contracts. They can make associations with whomever they want.
Online education has experienced exponential growth in American higher education, yet little research has been conducted on how online courses and programs are structured and governed in traditional colleges and universities. Employing a comparative case study design, this study examines the organizational aspects that have influenced three state-level virtual universities in their ability to sustain. An analysis of data collected from 43 higher education leaders, administrators and faculty members indicates that consortium is a viable approach to coordinating online education at the state level, but tremendous challenges remain. The lessons learned are of great use to higher education leaders in planning and running virtual universities and open universities. This study is also informative for students and researchers who employ qualitative inquiry in conducting research in education.

Higher education has become increasingly important in the field of law enforcement in recent years; however, little research has been done to determine the benefits of higher education on the field. This study was designed to address one of the issues of higher education in law enforcement. This study compares police officer perceptions of higher education and its effect upon the law enforcement profession. In particular, this study focused on determining whether or not there were differences in perceptions of the benefits of higher education on careers across different ranks. The Law Enforcement Perception Educational Survey (LEPES) was used to identify and compare data obtained from individuals at various levels of rank within the Phoenix Police Department. The LEPES assessed perceptions of the effectiveness of higher education in promoting career advancement and perceptions of the effectiveness of higher education in improving work performance. The survey was administered to 140 police officers, 35 from each rank: officer/detective, sergeant, lieutenant, executive / commander within the Phoenix Police Department.
