While I will be the first to admit this book is not my normal fan fair and is way over my head. I did find it an interesting read. Martin Chitwood's -The Influence of the English Common Law on the Law of Commonwealth West Africa is a very well written that is matter of fact. This book is written about a complex subject, that is way over my head. It is broken down and makes it easier to understand a very complex curriculum. Any person that would like more information on law of common wealth in West Africa would be impressed with this read. It would also make a great reference book to those that have interest in the subject.
Most treatises on law reform are concerned with the dynamics of a developed legal system. These studies deal with changes within a legal system. In his latest book, Martin Chitwood delves into an entirely different area of study; that of the incursion of one legal system on another.
Martin Chitwood has served as lead or co-lead counsel in more than 40 class actions nationwide and has been instrumental in recovering billions of dollars for investors and other class members. In a lead article in February 2004, the Atlanta Journal/Constitution stated that Mr. Chitwood "is considered the plaintiffs' lawyer in the state of Georgia." Recently, Mr. Chitwood served as co-lead counsel in both the BankAmerica securities litigation in the Eastern District of Missouri in which $490 million was recovered for investors and in the Oxford Health securities litigation in the Southern District of New York which resulted in a $300 million recovery for investors - when these cases were resolved in 2003 they were the second and fifth largest recoveries, respectively, since the enactment of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the "PSLRA"). Mr. Chitwood has also served as lead trial counsel in approximately 25 jury trials and has written and argued numerous appeals.
