About this Publication:

Acta Juridica is an annual thematic journal which, for over 50 years, has been published with the Faculty of Law of the University of Cape Town. The editorial team changes each year depending on the subject dealt with in the issue. Acta Juridica 2009 brings together papers given at a workshop held in Cape Town in March 2008, which was a joint venture between the New York University Law School and the Faculty of Law at the University of Cape Town. The papers critically explore the concept of Global Administrative Law in theory and its relevance to developing countries; the efficacy of regulatory regimes focused on international trade and finance; and recent developments in the crucially important area of intellectual property law. Most back issues from 1967 are available on request. Issues are also available in soft cover, as well as electronically on CD-ROM and online from the year 2000 to date.
