An award winning work from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto (The Day I Will Never Forget, Divorce Iranian Style) and co-director Florence Ayisi, Sisters in Law is an uplifting and enlightening slice of life, focusing on justice in the Muslim village of Kumba Town, Cameroon.The town is overseen by the progressive female partnership of prosecutor Vera Ngassa and court president Beatrice Ntuba, who together help women to speak out and fight back against assumptions of patriarchal privilege in modern-day Africa. In signature style, Longinotto's unobtrusive camera captures an abundance of colourful characters, allowing their powerful stories to unfold effortlessly, without the need for narration. The cases include Sonita, a young girl who accuses a neighbour of rape; Manka a six-year old who has been beaten with a coat-hanger; and Amina, a wife seeking divorce from her abusive husband. All three are given the sort of support that extends beyond legal advice and becomes a crucial act of empowerment.A warm, witty and involving portrait of two remarkable characters and an example of grassroots action at its most effective, Sisters in Law is that rare thing - a film that makes you believe things might actually get better rather than worse.Special Features:Behind the scenesBehind the scenes.TrailerTrailer.

Legal Writing in Plain English
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Admirably clear, concise, down-to-earth, and powerful - all too often, legal writing embodies none of these qualities. Its reputation for obscurity and needless legalese is widespread. Since 2001 Bryan A. Garner's 'Legal Writing in Plain English' has helped address this problem by providing lawyers, judges, paralegals, law students, and legal scholars with sound advice and practical tools for improving their written work. Now the leading guide to clear writing in the field, this indispensable volume encourages legal writers to challenge conventions and offers valuable insights into the writing process that will appeal to other professionals: how to organize ideas, create and refine prose, and improve editing skills. Accessible and witty, 'Legal Writing in Plain English' draws on real-life writing samples that Garner has gathered through decades of teaching experience. Trenchant advice covers all types of legal materials, from analytical and persuasive writing to legal drafting, and the book's principles are reinforced by sets of basic, intermediate, and advanced exercises in each section. In this new edition, Garner preserves the successful structure of the original while adjusting the content to make it even more class-room-friendly. He includes case examples from the past decade and addresses the widespread use of legal documents in electronic formats. His book remains the standard guide for producing the jargon-free language that clients demand and courts reward.
