Origin Of Equity Jurisdiction And Jurisprudence, Edward Murphy May 1930

Origin Of Equity Jurisdiction And Jurisprudence, Edward Murphy

Student Theses

Introductory Statement

It is not our purpose in this thesis to attempt a complete and detailed history of equity as it exists in England and in the United states. To do this would involve little more than a compilation of what has already been quite elaborately treated by some of the great legal minds of England and America.

We propose to treat rather of the nature of Equity as it existed in the Roman Law,its influence in the English law, the primitive condition of the law at the time of the origin of Equity, and of the causes which ...


Government Liability In Tort, Edwin Borchard Jan 1925

Government Liability In Tort, Edwin Borchard

Faculty Scholarship Series

Probably no function of a municipal corporation is more “governmental" in character than the care of its highways, streets and bridges. In theory, therefore, the city should be immune from responsibility for negligence in such matters; and such was the common law. Precisely the opposite result, however, constitutes the weight of judicial authority in this country, even in the absence of statue, on the commonly advanced ground that the duty of taking care of the public highways is ministerial in character. The conclusion deserves approval, though not necessarily the ground on which it is based. More difficult to support is ...


Strength And Weakness Of The New International Court, Edwin Borchard Jan 1922

Strength And Weakness Of The New International Court, Edwin Borchard

Faculty Scholarship Series

For an adequate understanding of the origin, jurisdiction and functions of the newly established court of international justice at the Hague, it will be necessary to revert to the two Hague Conferences of 1899 and 1907 and to examine the organization of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague created and developed at: those Conferences. The characteristic feature of the Court of Arbitration as distinguished from the new Permanent Court of Justice lies in the fact that the personnel of the former consists of an eligible list or panel, of which there are now some one hundred and twenty ...


Earning Of Freight On Uncompleted Voyages, Edwin Borchard Jan 1921

Earning Of Freight On Uncompleted Voyages, Edwin Borchard

Faculty Scholarship Series

An inevitable consequence of the Great War was the interruption or breaking up of commercial voyages it necessarily brought about. These acts of interference have occasioned much litigation on the question of the amount of freight earned by vessels thus rendered unable to complete their voyages, and have given renewed importance to an interesting subject of admiralty and contract law. The imagination has not conjured more varied and romantic circumstances than the actual facts of maritime adventure, as disclosed in the prosaic pages of the law reports. It may, therefore, be of interest to discover how the courts have dealt ...


Declaratory Judgment A Needed Procedural Reform, Edwin Borchard Jan 1918

Declaratory Judgment A Needed Procedural Reform, Edwin Borchard

Faculty Scholarship Series

It is now our purpose to undertake an analysis of numerous declaratory actions and judgments, with a view to determine the scope of and the limitations upon this useful form of procedure. An examination of declaratory judgments in the various jurisdictions in which the institution has been adopted reveals a remarkable similarity of fundamental principles characterizing the practice of making judicial declarations. As our interest is confined to the practice, emphasis will be laid not upon the- decision itself as a matter of substantive law, but rather upon the type of question submitted for declaratory judgment, the cases in which ...


Some Lessons From The Civil Law, Edwin Borchard Jan 1916

Some Lessons From The Civil Law, Edwin Borchard

Faculty Scholarship Series

The purpose of this brief article is not so much to set forth any specific institutions disclosed by a study of the civil law, as to point out some of those defects of our own system which are accentuated by comparison with the civil law, defects due to the methods rather than the substance of the common law. There is no desire to urge such a radical and perhaps impossible step as the substitution of civil law methods for our own; but in the consideration of plans for the improvement of our law, it may be profitable to observe that ...
