An Index Of Printed Virginia Trial Court Opinions Between 1850 And 1928, William Hamilton Bryson

Law Faculty Publications

In the latter half of the nineteenth and the first quarter of the twentieth centuries, the Virginia bench and bar were served by four law journals. These were The Quarterly Law Journal (1856-1859), The Quarterly Law Review (1860-1861) The Virginia Law Journal (1877- 1893), and The Virginia Law Register (1895-1928). One of their major functions was the publication of the full texts of selected judicial opinions. Although most of these cases were from the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, there were also many from the lower courts of The Old Dominion. The Virginia Supreme Court opinions were later published in ...

Overview Of The Role Of Precedent In The Legal System Of The United States, Ana Elena Fierro Jan 1995

Overview Of The Role Of Precedent In The Legal System Of The United States, Ana Elena Fierro

LLM Theses and Essays

Traditionally, legal systems have been classified as either Common Law or Civil Law; scholars distinguish these systems based on their origins, as well their attitudes towards stare decisis. Common law considers precedent as a source of binding rules, while civil law does not. However, some scholars consider the methods for legal reasoning to be almost the same in every legal system. These scholars maintain that regardless of the source of law in a particular country, once a judge determines that the facts of one case are similar to those regulated by a certain rule, the judge will apply that particular ...


Foreign Investment In Sub-Saharan Africa: How Changing Attitudes Have Affected The Legal Environment In The Post Cold War Era, Joel Waswa Kisubika Jan 1995

Foreign Investment In Sub-Saharan Africa: How Changing Attitudes Have Affected The Legal Environment In The Post Cold War Era, Joel Waswa Kisubika

LLM Theses and Essays

In Sub-Saharan Africa, like many other third world and former Soviet bloc countries, economic development policies revolve around raising the standard of living for their people. Therefore, they are seeking different ways to attract investment, trade, technology, and jobs. The movement towards attracting foreign investment has been paralleled by democratic political reforms and economic liberalization of previously autocratic and restrictive systems. These reforms have been enacted, mostly at the insistence of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, in order to deal with the severe foreign debt situation and improve Sub-Saharan Africa’s opportunities for attracting foreign investment. This ...

Facing A Time Of Counter-Revolution: The Kepone Incident And A Review Of First Principles, Zygmunt J.B. Plater

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The Kepone contamination episode of 1966-75 was a milestone that focused an entire nation’s attention on environmental hazards and our need to do better in recognizing and avoiding them. We have learned a great deal from that unfortunate story. The evolution of American environmental law since the Kepone debacle has repeatedly used the incident as a touchstone in identifying environmental pollution’s causes, effects, and potential solutions. This essay offers four propositions, about two things that have changed, and two things that have not, in the years since Kepone, taking account of where we are, and seeking some points ...


An Essay On Horseless Carriages And Paperless Negotiable Instruments: Some Lessons From The Article 8 Revision, James S. Rogers Jan 1995

An Essay On Horseless Carriages And Paperless Negotiable Instruments: Some Lessons From The Article 8 Revision, James S. Rogers

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

As practices change, so too must the language and concepts that define and describe them. That is the lesson to be drawn from the past few decades’ work on the commercial law of investment securities. Article 8 is the first article of the Uniform Commercial Code to reach a third generation. There is the original version, the 1978 version, and now the 1994 version. The original version was based on the traditional system in which buyers and sellers effected transfer of securities by physical delivery of certificates. The 1978 version added new provisions dealing with “uncertificated securities.” Then the 1994 ...
