Water Rights Legislation In The East: A Program For Reform, Richard C. Ausness Jul 1983

Water Rights Legislation In The East: A Program For Reform, Richard C. Ausness

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Expanding municipal and Industrial demand, along with increasing use of supplemental irrigation have escalated consumptive water use dramatically In the Eastern United States since World War II. This escalated use already has caused water shortages in some parts of the East, and experts predict more widespread water supply problems In the future.

As the inadequacies of the common law water rights system in a water-scarce environment have become evident, many eastern states have supplemented or replaced common law rules with some form of statutory water allocation system. Typically, these statutes establish a permit system administered by a state water resources ...

An Overview Of The Japanese Legal System, Elliott J. Hahn Jan 1983

An Overview Of The Japanese Legal System, Elliott J. Hahn

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

Trade between the United States and Japan is growing at such a rapid pace that it is incumbent on those involved in private international law to be well-versed in the Japanese legal system. This Article is inteded to be of service to one weeking an overview of that system. The basic lesson for the reader is that the legal system is that the legal system of Japan differs significantly from that of the United States. This difference arises from disparate views of Americans and Japanese as to the fundamental purpose of a legal system. Upon reflection, it is perhaps not ...

A Comparative Study Of British Barristers And American Legal Practice And Education, Marilyn J. Berger Jan 1983

A Comparative Study Of British Barristers And American Legal Practice And Education, Marilyn J. Berger

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

The conduct of a trial in England is undeniably an impressive undertaking. Costume alone transports the viewer to Elizabethan times. Counsel and judges, bewigged and gowned, appear in a cloistered, regal setting, strewn with leather-bound books. Brightly colored ribbons of red, green, yellow and white, rather than metal clips and staples fasten the legal papers. After comparison with the volatile atmosphere and often unruly conduct of a trial in a United States courtroom it is natural to assume that the British model of courtroom advocacy provides an instructive model for its American counterpart.


Jurisdictional Bases For Criminal Legislation And Its Enforcement, B.J. George Jr. Jan 1983

Jurisdictional Bases For Criminal Legislation And Its Enforcement, B.J. George Jr.

Michigan Journal of International Law

The doctrine of jurisdiction-the authority of nations or states to create or prescribe penal or regulatory norms and to enforce them through administrative and judicial action- has been a source of difficulty in both international and domestic law for centuries. The last two decades, however, have witnessed more conflicts over the invocation of forum penal laws to reach persons and activities outside national boundaries than had arisen for more than a century before. Moreover, treaties restricting some dimensions of penal jurisdiction based on other than the territorial concept have become increasingly common, and some nations have legislated to prevent their ...

In Defense Of The Bankruptcy Code's Radical Integration Of The Preference Rules Affecting Commercial Financing, Thomas M. Ward, Jay A. Shulman Jan 1983

In Defense Of The Bankruptcy Code's Radical Integration Of The Preference Rules Affecting Commercial Financing, Thomas M. Ward, Jay A. Shulman

Washington University Law Review

The passage of the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978 significantly changed the statutory foundation of American preference law. Section 547 mixes new, carefully measured concepts with familiar definitional language from old section 60. The new conceptual structure of section 547 is a departure from the abstract framework of its predecessor. Under section 60, "worthy" transfers were protected by qualifications imaginatively grafted by the judges onto the specific elements of the preference definition. Among the most ingenious, and perhaps most significant, of these qualifications were those designed to protect pre-petition transfers incident to various types of financing arrangements. In contrast, section ...

The Regulation Of Multiple Employer Trusts: Past, Present & Future, Edward A. Scallet Jan 1983

The Regulation Of Multiple Employer Trusts: Past, Present & Future, Edward A. Scallet

Washington University Law Review

It can be persuasively argued that the recognized abuses in ERISA pension plans are no more severe than those appearing in welfare plans, and that welfare abuses have a significant adverse effect on millions of employees. Nevertheless, application of ERISA in this area has been hampered by several difficult issues, most of which are traceable to a lack of congressional precision in designing enforcement mechanisms specific to welfare plans, and more importantly, to inadequate coordination of state and federal responsibility in this area. This Article examines this problem by discussing the congressional, judicial and regulatory experience with one type of ...

A Critical Analysis Of Holmes's Theory Of Torts, Patrick J. Kelley Jan 1983

A Critical Analysis Of Holmes's Theory Of Torts, Patrick J. Kelley

Washington University Law Review

In this Article I will first attempt to describe Holmes's theory of torts in a sufficiently broad context to reveal his methodology, the assumptions underlying his methodology, and the relation between Holmes's methodology and his substantive theory. After placing Holmes's theory within the philosophical tradition of nineteenth-century positivism, I shall attempt a practical critique of Holmes's methodology by analyzing its assumptions, the reasonableness of these assumptions, and the matters the methodology is forced to conclude are irrelevant. I then focus on Holmes's substantive theory to see whether it is internally coherent in light of these ...
