      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 2-18, February 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to provide guidance to law reformers in Uganda on the best approach to insolvency law reform and the objectives that should be furthered. Design/methodology/approach This paper provides a literature review. Findings A balance of various objectives serves the purpose of a modern insolvency law system. Originality/value These findings would enable future reforms in Uganda to be streamlined towards a particular objective rather than a general approach to insolvency regulation.

  • Corporate governance: mapping the change
    • Pages: 19 - 33
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 19-33, February 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to explore the relationship of corporate governance attributes with cost of capital and firm performance. This paper also tries to find some widely discussed corporate governance attributes that hold importance in Indian context. Design/methodology/approach This paper is based on literature survey of 241 research papers, both conceptual and empirical, which covers literature published over a period of three decades, ranging from 1986 to 2016. The literature includes those papers that studied the relation of corporate governance with cost of capital and firm performance, also it includes those research papers which discuss the evolution and development of corporate governance as a concept. Findings This study finds that the idea of corporate governance has shifted from the protection of shareholders’ rights to a firm’s need for survival. There is a dearth of literature studying the relation between corporate governance and cost of capital in India. It is observed that cost of capital is a better measure than Tobin’s q in Indian context. Research limitations/implications This paper mainly focuses on themes like cost of capital and firm performance therefore, some other firm-related measures which are also influenced by corporate governance may have been ignored. Originality/value This study enhances the literature on corporate governance especially in Indian context. Empirically testing the framework developed in this study will help in identifying the significance of various corporate governance attributes in Indian context.

  • The feasibility of online dispute resolution in the Islamic banking
           industry in Malaysia
    • Pages: 34 - 54
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 34-54, February 2018.
      Purpose The paper aims to examine the perceptions of three major stakeholders – bankers, lawyers and customers – in the Islamic banking industry in Malaysia to assess their behavioural intention to use the proposed online dispute resolution (ODR) mechanism. Design/methodology/approach The study modifies the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) within the context of ODR and its feasibility in the Malaysian Islamic banking industry. The model was extended to include trust in technology and trust in bank, which might have significant influences on the intentions of major stakeholders to use ODR for banking-related disputes. Actual use of the ODR was not included in the model as specified in the original UTAUT. Based on an internet survey, responses were obtained from about 109 respondents. The data obtained were subjected to multivariate statistical analyses. Findings Results obtained indicate that trust in technology and effort expectancy are the most influencing determinants of the behavioural intention to use ODR among stakeholders in the Islamic banking industry in Malaysia. However, performance expectancy and social influence did not produce significant effects on behavioural intention. Research limitations/implications Applying ODR in the banking industry in Malaysia will contribute to sustainable banking businesses in major Islamic finance jurisdictions. Being the most advanced region in global Islamic banking business, Asia sets the pace through theoretical and empirical studies in exploring innovative ideals such as ODR to promote sustainable business that not only ensures proper customer relationship management but also promotes consume protection. Practical implications Results obtained suggest that the increasing use of internet banking will make ODR the preferable mechanism for dispute resolution in small-scale disputes in retail banking. This will also require some form of predictability, enforceability and Shari‘ah compliance in the process of dispute resolution for the major stakeholders to have full confidence in the ODR mechanism. The recently introduced Financial Ombudsman Scheme in the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013 of Malaysia is expected to serve as a good legal basis for the ODR mechanism. Originality/value This appears to be one of the earliest attempts to examine the application of ODR in resolving Islamic banking disputes with a detailed analysis on its legal basis and implication.

      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 55-68, February 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to discuss the essential features, merits and drawbacks of the recently enacted Indian Real Estate Act, 2016, an economic reform measure pertaining to the real estate sector (RES). This paper analyses the impact of the Act and Union Budget 2016 on the inflow of foreign d irect investment (FDI) in India, and examines its ramifications on the world economy. Design/methodology/approach The study is based on secondary data sources, including consumer forum reports, investigative reports from national agencies, court decisions, government websites, real estate companies and industry associations. A sample survey on the implications of the Act has been conducted using Facebook and and through personal interaction with various stakeholders. Findings The Indian RES was unregulated prior to the passage of the Act, which has several provisions aimed at protecting the interest of consumers by tightening fraudulent practices of promoters/developers. Stakeholders are hopeful, but there is some apprehension. The government’s budgetary and fiscal support for infrastructure development has had an impact on the FDI inflow. Practical implications The Act is new, so there is not enough data to judge its real impact on the economy. However, it has started showing evidence of impact through a recent judgment by the Supreme Court of India punishing a promoter. Originality/value Regulating the Indian RES is a challenging task, but the new regulations are likely to provide confidence to foreign investors who may see India as a safety net for investment. This paper is timely and may help move things in this direction.

  • Treatment of silence as misrepresentation in contracts
    • Pages: 69 - 78
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 69-78, February 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to provide a comparative discussion on silence as a misrepresentation in contractual obligations between common law and Islamic law. The objective of this paper is to – from a legal pluralism point of view – highlight the contrasts between the two traditions and provide recommendations for best practices to achieve fairness and equity among the contracting parties. While common law does not treat silence as conscious misrepresentation, in Islamic law, silence does not constitute affirmative will. This has repercussions for the contracting parties because if future disputes arise, the aggrieved party in Islamic law reserves the option to rescind or nullify the contract – an opportunity not afforded by common law. We have discussed and analyzed the implementations of the different contractual terms, such as fraud, misrepresentation, trickery and deception in relation with Islamic law principles and common law practices. This research is an effort to draw the attention for further development in both Islamic law and common law practices on contractual obligation. The notion of misrepresentation – subset of a broader gamut of fraud – is arguably nebulous in Islamic literature as well. We delve into these nuances and provide examples both from common law and Islamic law precedents and provide recommendations for reform in both traditions. Design/methodology/approach This paper operates under qualitative methodological framework and uses secondary sources for analysis. Sources include journal databases, review of cases, classical/medieval Islamic scripts, etc. Findings This paper provides a general comparative study between common law’s principle and practice and Islamic law’s principle to forge a better understanding of fine-tuning existing practice and contribute to the debate on determining the best practices to unify international trade and custom exercise. Common law principle, obviously, holds a historical and traditional reputation as those principles are derived from long years of practice and judicial interpretation. Such historical legal system should accommodate fresh ideas in their repertoire and welcome novel ideas which would positively influence its own practice. This paper affords the freedom to the reader to interpret which general principle is acceptable in terms of contractual obligation. Originality/value Previous works exist on the issue of misrepresentation. However, those are mostly explanations of fraud and deceit in Islamic law or common law. The treatment of silence as affirmative will is seldom touched upon. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first attempt at contrasting the treatment of silence in common and Islamic law. They have also advocated pluralistic practices and argued for legal reform whereby both traditions can benefit from each other.

  • The role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) toward the development
           micro and small and entrepreneurs using partnership and community
           development program (PKBL) in Pekanbaru
    • Pages: 79 - 86
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 79-86, February 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to determine the roles of corporate social responsibility (CSR) or social responsibility practiced by state-owned enterprises (SOEs) toward the development of entrepreneurial attitude and revenue of micro and small entrepreneurs in Pekanbaru. Design/methodology/approach This research used quantitative analysis with t-test (different test) to view the differences in entrepreneurial attitude and revenue before and after receiving the CSR fund through Partnership and Community Development Program (PKBL program). Findings PKBL aid by a state-owned company is highly effective and helps small and micro entrepreneurs in increasing revenue. It is seen from the significance of sales turnover and cost efficiency development. Some positive impacts of receiving PKBL fund on the development of entrepreneurial attitude towards positivity are significant and some are not. A significant change is found in the development of entrepreneurial attitude in the aspect of planning and leadership that show that micro and small entrepreneurs have a plan and a good leadership after receiving PKBL fund. There appears a significant difference before and after PKBL fund distribution. Confidence, task orientation, risk taking and honesty dimensions show no signs of significant difference before and after receiving PKBL fund, as they are related to someone’s nature, which is attached to each individual, and it requires time, processes and optimal treatment to change. Originality/value No study has investigated the roles of CSR or social responsibility practiced by SOEs towards the development of entrepreneurial attitude and revenue of micro and small entrepreneurs in Pekanbaru, Riau.

           village cooperative (KUD) in Riau Indonesia
    • Pages: 87 - 101
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 87-101, February 2018.
      Purpose The purposes of this research are to investigate the relationship between strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) and development strategy and the relationship between development strategy and the success of Koperasi Unit Desa (KUD). Design/methodology/approach The sample population in this research is a village cooperative (KUD) that is located in the Indragiri Hulu Regency region. Withdrawal of the sample that is selected in this research is conducted by using the random sample method that is graded proportionately. This is done because this research has a homogeneous objective (Nazir, 1983, p. 346) and the sample retrieved is as much as 31 village cooperatives (KUD). The analysis method that is used to answer the research hypothesis is path analysis, which consists of two regression equations, namely, the influence of the variables of strength (X1), weakness (X2), opportunity (X3) and threat (X4) on the development strategy (Y1) variable and the influence of the development strategy (Y1) variable on the success of village cooperative (KUD) (Y2) variable by the hypothesis that is presented in a conceptual diagram. Findings The SWOT variable has a significance influence on the development strategy variable in the cooperative in Indragiri Hulu Regency, Riau Province, either partially or simultaneously. And among the variables, the development strategy variable has a significant influence on the success of village cooperative (KUD) in Indragiri Hulu Regency, Riau Province. Also, it was found that the SWOT variable has an indirect influence on the success of village cooperative (KUD) in Indragiri Hulu Regency, Riau Province. Originality/value To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first paper to test the relation between SWOT and the development strategy and the performance of village cooperatives in Indragiri Hulu Regency, Indonesia.

  • Party autonomy and justice in international commercial arbitration
    • Pages: 114 - 134
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 114-134, February 2018.
      Purpose Party autonomy is a core tenet of the arbitral process which bestows certain contractual freedoms upon the disputing parties. This paper aims to utilise both doctrinal analysis and theoretical conceptualisation to examine the principle of party autonomy in international commercial arbitration. It examines the extent to which certain exceptions to this principle, such as public policy and natural justice, where autonomy impedes on matters of justice and delocalisation, have restricted the principle in practice. Design/methodology/approach Party autonomy is a core tenet of the arbitral process, which bestows certain contractual freedoms upon the disputing parties. However, in spite of its appeal as an unfettered right, it has been challenged by an array of exceptions that have rendered it largely unqualified in international commercial arbitration. This paper utilises both doctrinal analysis and theoretical conceptualisation to examine the principle of party autonomy in international commercial arbitration. It examines the extent to which certain exceptions to this principle, such as public policy and natural justice, where autonomy impedes on matters of justice and delocalisation, have restricted the principle in practice. Furthermore, approaches to party autonomy in two distinct legal systems, the Common law system in England and Sharia law in Saudi Arabia, are examined to ascertain the extent to which party autonomy has been hindered by these exceptions. Findings Arbitration continued to grow throughout the forgone centuries, with key philosophers, such as Aristotle, advocating the advantages of arbitration over litigation. In addition, the emergence of party autonomy occurred in the sixteenth century, with Dumoulin proposing that the parties’ will in contracts is sovereign. Thus, party autonomy began to develop into a significant aspect of contract law, which plays a pivotal role in arbitration. This is because the principle has its roots in the autonomous will of the parties to conduct the arbitral process as they wish. The paper explored the debate regarding party autonomy and its development into the contemporary world of arbitration. It examined its origins and how it has grown into the core fabric of arbitration today. Emphasis was provided in relation to the nature of the principle, which was highly relevant to the debate. This is because it is vital to appreciate issues such as freedom of contract to have a deeper insight into the principle and what it entails. The limitations of party autonomy were extensively examined, and the public policy exception was found to construe narrowly by a vast number of States. As a result, it was suggested that the exception should be more than merely a theoretical defence. Thus, it should be exercised where enforcement of an arbitral award would disregard unjust or improper results. Furthermore, the natural justice principle was observed as a double-edged sword that protected the parties in the arbitral process. However, it also hampered the effectiveness of party autonomy by impeding upon the parties’ freedom to contract, which ultimately limited the principle. Thus, it is concluded that the principle of party autonomy is not absolute. While it would be desirable if it was, certain issues cannot be resolved so easily. Limitations to party autonomy have existed since its inception and are most likely to continue. Although this is not the ideal situation for proponents of autonomy, it nevertheless appears to be the case. However, it is proposed that limitations to party autonomy should be chipped away as much as possible. This would enable the autonomy of the parties to be upheld at a much higher rate. Originality/value This paper utilises both doctrinal analysis and theoretical conceptualisation to examine the principle of party autonomy in international commercial arbitration. Secondary sources were also used.

    • Pages: 135 - 149
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 135-149, February 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to explore the reasons why the USA makes a good comparator for the UK when it comes to corporate governance. Design/methodology/approach The paper is largely theoretical. Findings The paper finds that the USA has become a laboratory for ideas in corporate governance and the UK can learn a lot in areas such as takeovers and shareholders’ rights. Originality/value The paper explains the reasons why the UK and the USA have dominated research literature in corporate governance. The findings and arguments raised throughout the paper are very original.

  • The role of international investment agreements in attracting FDI to
           developing countries
    • Pages: 150 - 171
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 150-171, February 2018.
      Purpose The study aims to focus on the effectiveness of international investment agreements (IIAs) in helping or facilitating the influx of foreign direct investment (FDI) to host developing countries. Design/methodology/approach To critically examine the topic, the black letter approach and the socio-legal analysis are adopted. The study has analysed how Mauritius, being a developing country, is responding to FDI needs from various bilateral and multilateral investment treaties concluded, and the research includes the analysis of official data publicly made available by the World Trade Organization, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, International Monetary Fund and Mauritius governmental agencies’ reports. Findings From the methodologies used, it was found that other than IIAs, there are various key determinants which foreign investors consider prior to injecting their capital in developing countries in terms of environmental, social and cultural factors. Also, there are some inherent loopholes mostly in terms of monitoring, in the way IIAs are concluded and are applied in practice by and amongst signatory states. Originality/value This research is amongst the first studies to conclude the link between IIAs and FDI flows in developing countries with a particular focus on Mauritius. Additionally, an overwhelming number of studies have emphasised on the efforts to boost FDI, which are inspired mostly by action plans of developed nations, but this research will analyse the policy options adopted by China, being itself a developing country, and the extent to which such recommendations are applicable in the context of Mauritius will also be considered.

  • The Ombudsman Act 1980: redressing administrative grievances in Bangladesh
    • Pages: 172 - 184
      Abstract: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 60, Issue 1, Page 172-184, February 2018.
      Purpose It is recognized worldwide that an ombudsman system makes the public administration more transparent and accountable to the public. This paper aims to examine the provisions of the Ombudsman Act 1980, as well as the position, role and necessity of the Office of the Ombudsman in Bangladesh. It also evaluates how the ombudsman institution can act as a gateway for citizens of Bangladesh to resolve complaints against the maladministration of public administration in the country. Design/methodology/approach The study is basically qualitative in nature where both primary and secondary sources have been used. As well, a combination of analytical methods and current legislative methods, together with future legislative techniques, was used in the study. Findings This study finds that the ombudsman is a vital institution for Bangladesh to eliminate maladministration, nepotism and abuse of human rights, as well as abuse of the power of the public administration. Going forward, Bangladesh needs to amend the existing Ombudsman Act 1980 and then take proper steps to firmly establish the Ombudsman Office to ensure and increase public confidence, operational effectiveness and good governance and human rights throughout the country. Research limitations/implications The main implication of this study is that it will play an important role for the development of the rule of law and human rights in Bangladesh. This study will make its readers and particularly the citizens of Bangladesh aware of the importance of the “Office of the Ombudsman” in Bangladesh and the existing loopholes in the current Ombudsman Act 1980. This research also provides a new avenue for scholars to contribute their knowledge and wisdom toward nation-building by further researching the Office of the Ombudsman in Bangladesh. In this way, scholars in this field can share their experiences of the role of the ombudsman to a wider audience. Practical implications The study will facilitate policymakers and the government to enact an effective new law or to amend the existing law relating to the ombudsman. Originality/value The paper sets out the proposed amendment to the Ombudsman Act 1980. Hence, it will be of interest to policymakers, government, organizations of civil society and those developing countries that have not taken steps toward forming an ombudsman institution.
