Combination Among Physicians To Fix Prices For Professional Services, Harry B. Hutchins Jan 1909

Combination Among Physicians To Fix Prices For Professional Services, Harry B. Hutchins

Articles

The case of Rohlf v. Kasemeer et al., decided by the Supreme Court of Iowa, November 18, 1908, and reported in 118 N. W. Rep., p. 276, although primarily upon the construction of a local statute, involves a question of general interest. The plaintiff therein, who is a physician, together with thirteen others of the same profession, all residing and practicing in the same county, entered into an agreement, combination or understanding, the terms of which are not given, but the object of which was to fix and maintain the fees and charges to be exacted for medical and surgical ...

A New Development In Legal Education, Charles M. Hepburn Jan 1909

A New Development In Legal Education, Charles M. Hepburn

Articles by Maurer Faculty

The inauguration of the American Institute of Law promises a very important advance into new fields of legal education. The movement was started some months ago by the American Law Book Company. Encouraged be the success of its Cyclopedia of Law and Procedure, which is largely the work of law school teachers, the American Law Book Company has taken the initiative in moving for the establishment of a high grade institution for legal education in its widest relations, to be organized be, and conducted under, the control of law school men and active practitioners interested in the cause of legal ...


The Trial Brief, Edson R. Sunderland Jan 1909

The Trial Brief, Edson R. Sunderland

Book Chapters

Professor Sunderland writes in introduction to his chapter: "As this is not a book of practice, an extended discussion of the general subject of 'Preparation for Trial' would manifestly be out of place.... The purpose of this part is to outline a course of investigation suitable in preparing a case for trial and to suggest methods for making the materials so obtained readily available." [p.207]


Prosecuting And District Attorneys, Henry M. Bates Jan 1909

Prosecuting And District Attorneys, Henry M. Bates

Book Chapters

Professor Bates defines his subject matter "Prosecuting and district attorneys are judicial officers of the state, within their respective districts, although not officers of the state at large. Under some statutes they are county officers, while under others they are not, but are circuit or district officers.... Like other attorneys, prosecuting and district attorneys are officers of the court; but they are not a part of the court because of their office." A two-page outline precedes the entry.


Process, Edson R. Sunderland Jan 1909

Process, Edson R. Sunderland

Book Chapters

Professor Sunderland's chapter on Process: "Process, in the sense in which it is employed in the present title, means the writ, notice, or other formal writing, issued by authority of law, for the purpose of bringing defendant into a court of law to answer plaintiff's demands in civil action, although in a more technical and limited sense the term is frequently applied only to those writs or writings which issue out of a court." The chapter features an 8-page outline introductory.

Book Chapters

Professor Sunderland's 780-page chapter on Pleadings: "Pleadings are statements, in logical and legal form, of causes of action and grounds of defense, terminating in a single proposition affirmed on one side and denied on the other. They are intended to form the foundation of the proof to be submitted on the trial, and should advise the parties to an action what the opposite party relies upon either as a cause of action or defense or objection as the case may be." Preceded by a 41-page outline.


The Public Policy Of Contracts To Will Future Acquired Property, Joseph H. Drake Jan 1909

The Public Policy Of Contracts To Will Future Acquired Property, Joseph H. Drake

Articles

The general subject of wills upon consideration seems to have given courts and jurists a good deal of trouble, not only in England and America, but also in the continental countries. The Code Napoleon appears in terms actually to prohibit the making of reciprocal or mutual wills in the same instrument.


The Federal Constitution Is Not Violated By A State Law Compelling One Accused Of Crime To Testify Against Himself, James H. Brewster Jan 1909

The Federal Constitution Is Not Violated By A State Law Compelling One Accused Of Crime To Testify Against Himself, James H. Brewster

Articles

A case has been recently decided by the Supreme Court of Colorado, upon a condition of facts which it seems, has not an exact parallel in any of the reports. After being in litigation for more than eleven years the question involved was finally settled by the court of last resort of that state. In effect the decision goes to the extent of saying, that when a note is endorsed specially and afterwards comes back to the party making such special endorsement, and the party reissues the same without striking out his endorsement, no new endorsement is necessary, since the ...


The Art Of Legal Practice, Edson R. Sunderland Jan 1909

The Art Of Legal Practice, Edson R. Sunderland

Articles

In one respect the law is the most perplexing subject with which a man can deal. It shifts and changes so rapidly that only a nimble and diligent student can keep abreast of it. One is likely to wake up any morning and find that the legislature has repealed a good part of what he knows, and he is in constant danger of having his most carefully formed opinions completely upset by a new decision of the Supreme Court. These violent changes are not due to any new discoveries, such as constantly enliven the scientific world, but merely to the ...

JURISPRUDENCE -

ASSIGNMENT OF A DEBT:

The effect of the assignment of a debt with respect to the debtor (e. g. as to the necessity of notice) is governed by the law determinng the debtors contract in general. 65 R. G., 357 (March 19, 1907); R. G., June 2, 1908, (18 Bohm's Zeitschrift 449).

CONTRACTS:

An attempt should be made even in bilateral contracts to discover a single law which, in accordance with the presumed intention of the parties, is to determine their mutual rights and obligations. 68 R. G., 203 (April 4, 1908).

Characteristics And Constitutionality Of Medical Legislation, Harry B. Hutchins Jan 1909

Characteristics And Constitutionality Of Medical Legislation, Harry B. Hutchins

Articles

Right to practice medicine regulated by statute.--In the absence of a statute upon the subject, any person is at liberty to practice medicine or surgery or both. This is the common law. And yet in the absence of a statute the physician necessarily assumes certain responsibilities that grow out of his relation to those whom he treats. He is bound to bring to the discharge of his duties the learning, skill and diligence usually possessed and exercised by physicians similarly situated. In other words, while in the absence of statutory regulation, the door of the profession is open to ...


English Law As An Exponent Of English History, Edson R. Sunderland Jan 1909

English Law As An Exponent Of English History, Edson R. Sunderland

Articles

It is not my purpose to unduly emphasize the light which the study of the laws of a people throws upon its character and development. The teaching of history should be broad enough to recognize the importance of all sides of national life. But I believe there has never been a sufficient appreciation of the real wealth of suggestive and illuminating material which is contained in the history of English law. For the English have been pre-eminently a legal race. In the study of Roman History Roman Law has always occupied a prominent place. The Romans made their reputation, so ...


A German Law Suit, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1909

A German Law Suit, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

If the German empire is compared with the United States, we find it possessed of far more power over the internal concerns of the several component States. Among other things, it dictates the methods of procedure in civil actions for the whole country. They are regulated by two imperial statutes, one entitled the Civilprozessordnung, or Ordering of Civil Process, i.e., Code of Civil Procedure; and the other the Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz, or Law of Court Administration, i.e., the Judiciary Act. Each was originally enacted in 1877, and has since been amended in various points.


The German Law-Suit Without Lawyers, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1909

The German Law-Suit Without Lawyers, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

As in the Roman practice, during the formulary period, there were two judicial stages to every law-suit, one in which the - issue was determined and the mode of trial directed, and another for the trial itself, so there are two judicial stages to every German law-suit. In the first, the court finds out what is really in controversy; in the second is the trial.


The Courts, As Conservators Of Social Justice, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1909

The Courts, As Conservators Of Social Justice, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

The better security of social justice is the main aim of modern political institutions. The paternalism of older forms of government guarded it fairly, provided there were a good and wise king. But good and wise kings were rare. Absolute monarchies, therefore, as soon as it became generally admitted that governments existed for the benefit of the governed, had to give place to constitutional monarchies or to republics. It was easy to write into constitutions declarations as to certain things which social justice demanded, and prohibitions against legislation to the contrary. But the whole field was not thus covered. The ...
