The implications of breaching UK advertising laws or regulations can be both costly and time-consuming. If a campaign is found to be potentially offensive, harmful or misleading, for example, all of the creative work and strategic planning may have to be withdrawn or changed. That is not only expensive but likely to attract very negative publicity to the brand. Ad Law is the essential practical guide to the law and regulation of advertising and marketing communications, offering level-headed advice on everyday questions encountered when designing and running promotional campaigns. Spanning legal issues such as intellectual property, privacy and defamation as well as the self-regulatory framework in the UK to which advertisers must adhere, Ad Law expertly leads readers through the most applicable laws and regulations, explains how to comply and points out common pitfalls. In addition, guidance on the practical side of the business of advertising is included, discussing the new industry-standard client/agency agreement, for example. Ad Law contains guidance based on real-world experiences from media and advertising lawyers and the IPA legal team, making it the ideal companion for advertising and marketing professionals as well as lawyers in the sector.

A cliche it may be but we are living in ever more turbulent times. Business decision-making has become more challenging and unpredictable than ever: we see unforeseen and often cataclysmic changes in consumer demand, both at home and in export markets; customers continue to demand more, more quickly and for less; new laws and regulations abound; competitors steal loyal customers; and, increasingly, the advice that once could be found from a 'Small Business Adviser' has been replaced by a call centre. Hand in hand with these challenges, the risks associated with expansion, or a new strategy, have grown significantly. In the context of a small business, where a manager has not necessarily had the breadth of experience of someone in a larger organization or formal management learning, they can seem extremely daunting. This book addresses the issues confronting managers/owners of SMEs by providing practical, jargon-free advice on which a SME can create a sound platform from which to prosper. * Uncomplicated and jargon free to appeal to the SME director or manager who has little time to read * Can be used as a continuous read or a source of ides for dealing with the day-to-day problems of running and growing a small business * Based on the practical experience of the authors with examples taken from consulting practice

The legal relationship between student and school is a fragile one. Almost every area of law affects education institutions in some manner. The rights of students, parents, and school employees are governed by constitutional provisions and by federal, state and local statutes. Contract law, tort law, constitutional law, civil rights law, sports law and disability combine to form the basis of education law. For example, even the seemingly basic task of setting academic standards involves both contract law and the laws protecting individuals with disabilities. It may also include First Amendment issues since some professors and instructors have claimed that the right to determine grades falls under the First Amendment. Special education students of all levels, from the most severely disabled to the extraordinarily gifted, fall under a set of complex laws and regulations pertaining specifically to their education. These regulations cover everything from identification of special education students to providing services to administrative and litigation proceedings in special education cases. School choice considerations including out of district attendance, magnet, charter and private schools and home schooling have legal issues and regulations as well. Issues such as participation in team sports and other extracurricular school sponsored activities, administration of standardized tests, and part time public school attendance are all part of legislation and regulations pertaining to home schooled students. Zero-tolerance policies pertaining to drugs, alcohol and weapons and school policies on disciplinary action are also part of education law. Civil litigation involves diverse torts including accidents, sexual harassment and hazing. First Amendment speech issues, religion and separation of church and state, and civil rights and discrimination also affect students and educational employees.Education Law, Second Edition is your comprehensive road map through the complicated legal situations in today's rapidly changing educational environment. It is your essential guide to creating standards for your school district and enforcing your legal rights in the classroom. You will be guided through the rights of teachers and other school employees, parents, and students through case studies of previous legal actions. The authors, Lois and Ralph Gerstein, analyze these legal issues from the points of view of students, parents, and school personnel, providing a well-rounded explanation of how local, state, and federal laws are interpreted in numerous and diverse education-related cases. Topics include: Admissions, school choice and accountability No Child Left Behind Act Grades and academic standing Standardized testing The Americans with Disabilities Act Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) Eligibility and parental consent for special education services Implementation of special education services Academic dishonesty Hazing and intimidation Disciplinary actions and procedures Zero tolerance policies Search and seizure and Fourth Amendment rights Regulating gang activity and preventing school violence First Amendment rights in the educational setting School library collections and the First Amendment Prayer in schools and at school sponsored events Religious Beliefs and curriculum Government funding of private and religious schools Discrimination Affirmative Action and Reverse Discrimination Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Access to and release of educational records Sexual harassment, misconduct and abuse in the educational setting Accidents and dangerous activities involving students Rights of home schooled to attend public school part time Rights of home schooled students to participate in public school extracurricular activities and sports Assumption of risk in participation in school athletics and extra curricular activities Improper advising, coaching, equipment or facilities Liability to participants and spectators Educational personnel issues And more!

The Medicines Act 1968 together with its delegated legislation comprehensively controls the manufacture, packaging, labelling, distribution and promotion of medicines for both human and animal use in the United Kingdom. It also controls the import and export of such medicines. It replaced a patchwork of controls which evolved over a century. Since its enactment, more than 150 items of delegated legislation (orders and regulations) have been made under its provisions and about 130 are still operative. The sheer physical bulk of this mass of material causes difficulty, not only in comprehension but also in finding the detail so often required. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that some pieces of legislation have been amended several times. My principal aim is to provide a reference book which contains all of the provisions of the Act and its various orders, regulations as amended to date. The material is arranged to facilitate the search for detail. In order to assist the reader in finding his way through this maze, Chaper 1 consists of a survey of the situation which existed before the Act came into being, together with a synopsis of the present controls. This should enable the reader to appreciate the changes which have occurred and how the system works.
