Principles & Practice in Cameroon
Author: Michael Akomaye Yanou
Publisher: African Books Collective
There is a dearth of well researched books on important disciplines in law written by Cameroonians. This regrettable situation has invariably meant a reliance of substantive and practice books written mostly by Nigerian and English writers. While books written by these writers have been helpful, they have not always captured the peculiarities and judicial attitudes of the Cameroonian context. When approached from the perspective of practice in the Anglophone regions, not even Cameroonian writers of French orientation have done justice to this situation. This book contributes to filling this gap. It is a comprehensive review that combines an analysis of the principles and basic procedure of labour law in Cameroon. Yanou draws on solid academic research as well as a wide ranging experience in legal practice across Cameroon and Nigeria to present a coherent and practical elaboration of themes such as employment, dismissal, remedies for wrongful dismissal, compensation for industrial injuries, and trade unions. The book is also motivated by the desire for a repository for members of the Bar and Bench, judges, academics, students and human resources practitioners.

How to be a Champion for Your Firm and Employees
Author: Andrew Elowitt,Marcia Watson Wasserman
Today more than ever, all members of a law firm must work together as a team for the benefit of clients. Coordinating and getting the most out of everyone's contributions is the responsibility of a firm's managers, whether they are lawyers or administrators. The fact is that few lawyers enter the profession with management experience. Law schools offer little if any preparation. All too often lawyers must learn to manage their firm's most significant asset--its people--on the fly and without a great deal of support. "Human capital" may be difficult to quantify, but when it is wasted or not effectively used, a firm will not survive, let alone prosper. Information on how to manage people in law firms has been sorely lacking up until now. Lawyers as Managers gives you everything you want and need to know about managing people. It is not just a book to help you deal with the challenging people in your law firm--it is a primer and road map on how to empower, motivate, inspire, and bring out the best of everyone in your law firm . . . including you! This book will accelerate your growth as a manager of lawyers and legal professionals. It is a handbook you can turn to if you're in a position of authority or as you gradually assume greater managerial responsibilities. It's a comprehensive and practical guide that includes the checklists, charts, and resources attorneys and managers need to lead thriving and resilient firms.
