Education is a fundamental right of every citizen but corruption impedes the realization of this right because it makes access to education difficult. This paper brings together the roots of corruption in education, examines the underlying effects and showcases the role education itself and the law play in combating this menace. Recommendations are then made. It is note that strategies to prevent corruption in education should consider strengthening communication, education of civic values, respect for established criteria and rules for all issues in the education sector.

Evaluating Accountability and Citizens Participation On the Open Government Plans of Selected Countries (Published)
This study assesses the openness of government plans of three countries, Peru, Indonesia and the United States within 2011 to 2013 using the average scores of four assessment tools Budget Transparency, Asset Disclosure, Law, Transparency and Citizens Engagement. On Transparency, the score for Peru fell by 0.04 points from 2.12 points in 2011 to 2.08 points 2012 and remained stable in 2013. Meanwhile, Indonesia improved its score by 0.13 points from 2.48 points in 2011 to 2.61 points 2012 and did not change in 2013. The overall score for the USA drop by 0.01 during the same period of time. This implies that even though the United States is seen as the most transparent, emerging countries are narrowing in as they adjust to certain regulatory conditions overtime. Rankings changes by 0.07 for Peru from 2011 to 2013, 0.17 for Indonesia and 0.08 for the United States. Indonesia reported the strongest change of 0.17, followed by the United States, and then Peru. Evidence presented in these rankings also shows that emerging countries like Peru and Indonesia are closing in to the countries that have been in democracy for a longer period of time. Even though the United States is leading the rankings, the graph above shows that the biggest improvements came for Indonesia, while Peru followed sluggishly behind.
The Impact of Law and Ethics in the Improvement of Public Services Provision in the Albanian Republic (Published)
Nowadays, countries with stable democracies, as well as consolidated means in the way of providing public services, have paid attention to the Public Administration. In addition to the legal remedy, necessary for the orientation of the ordering and decision-making activity that essentially typifies the Public Administration, it seems that the need to analyze the way public services are provided has been exposed. This apparently old tool, but under this context new, is Ethics. Reviewing literature, we think that, more emphasis is placed on developing countries, where Public Administration is found vulnerable to other phenomena, which damage the image and the most sensitive part: what the law or bylaws impose to Public Administration. This paper aims to bring a picture, at what level the ethical principle in the Albanian Public Administration has been raised and really functions, a principle which must go beyond the administrative activity.

Citation: Uchenna Emelonye and Francis Igiriogu (2022) Human Rights as the Foundation for Ethical Practice of Law, Global Journal of Politics and Law Research, Vol.10, No.1, pp.1-14
Abstract: This Article is a reflection on the importance and foundational role human rights play in the Ethics and Code of Conduct of the legal profession generally and specifically as it relates to the Liberian National Bar Association. It submits that human rights represent the minimum standards with regard to decent treatment of human beings anywhere, notwithstanding the location or culture of persons involved. As a result this makes human right principles an indispensable reference point and guide when formulating rules of professional ethics and code of conduct. It contends that this accounts why ethics should promote human rights and respect to human rights principles should be the basis for any ethical codes. It concludes that, this being the case, any code of conduct that violates human rights, such code has ab initio lost its legitimacy and moral basis to be code of conduct.
Women and Gender Equality in Chinese Law Today (Published)
The path towards equality of the sexes before the law has been a long road for China; one whose twists and turns have been sharp and crooked, and whose dips and crevices have been deep. China has made great strides down this road, but there is much ground yet to cover. Women in the world of Chinese law today are far better off than their counterparts a generation, or even a decade, ago; yet true gender equality has yet to be achieved. This paper analyzes the status of women in the law in China. It takes the form of a literature review of both Chinese and English language sources on the subject, drawing primarily from scholarly journals analyzing the subject going back as far as the late 1800s. This paper looks primarily at the status of women in the legal academy and profession, but also delves into the world of civil (that is, family or domestic) law in China and the current situation of the average female litigant in disputes in this area. In both instances, the status of women has been found to be disadvantaged in comparison to that of men. The literature finds that the laconic state of women persists today largely due to entrenched cultural norms and perspectives regarding the role of women as subordinate to men, pressures resulting from a China that has and continues to undergo massive societal and economic transition, and uniquely also from modes and norms of communication and power-sharing (such as “guānxī” and “face”) that seem to disadvantage women socially. These factors act as a countervailing force against more progressive trends that seek to build a more inclusive legal world for women in China, whether stemming from the rhetoric of the Communist Party or from the newer free market model which China has adopted. Progress towards gender equality in the law in China has been substantial, but is still wanting.
Prescription of the Lawsuit (Published)
The prescription of a law suit means that a right has been violated long ago and throughout this time the entity has not done the necessary actions for its protection. This relationship under the law does not allow this right to be enforced in a binding way. Thus, the passing of time during which the entity did not act to secure its protection, according to the law affects this legal relationship. The right to a law suit, as defined in the law, is the only opportunity to demand the enforcement of a mandatory civil law. The notion of the right of law suit relates to the notion of law suit. The law suit is the means by which the civil law or other rights arising out of certain legal relationships are protected and resettled by the court or other competent authority. This law suit protects not only subjective right but also objective right, because the competent body, by restoring the violated right, does not allow the violation of these norms of the law.

The Legal Implications of Duty of Care (Published)
It is not for every careless act that a man may be held responsible in law, nor even for every careless act that causes damage. He will only be liable in negligence if he is under a legal duty to take care. It may be objected that “duty” is not confined to the law of negligence and that it is an element in every tort, because there is a legal duty not to commit assault or battery, not to commit nuisance and so forth. But all that “duty” signifies in these other torts is that you must not commit them. It throws no light on their essential ingredients. Thus it will not tell us what the plaintiff must prove in assault in order to be successful. Breach of it is not one of the internal factors which constitute these other torts. But in the tort of negligence breach of “duty” is the chief ingredient of the tort; in fact there is no other except damage to the plaintiff.
