The Transformation Of Trusts As A Legal Category, 1800-1914, Gregory S. Alexander Oct 1987

The Transformation Of Trusts As A Legal Category, 1800-1914, Gregory S. Alexander

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

Sometimes we are least aware of that which most affects us. So it seems with respect to legal categories. Lawyers do not take legal categories very seriously today. But they should. Legal categories are central to legal reasoning; indeed it is almost impossible to imagine legal reasoning without the use of categories. Categorical thinking affects every area of law. The purpose of this article is to illuminate, through a case-study, the contingent and ideological character of legal categories. It focuses on the development of trusts into and then as a discrete legal category during the period between the beginning of ...


The Evolution Of Law: Continued, Alan Watson Oct 1987

The Evolution Of Law: Continued, Alan Watson

Scholarly Works

In my book The Evolution of Law I sought to give a general theory of legal evolution based on detailed legal examples from which generalizations could be drawn, offering as few examples as were consistent with my case in order to present as clear a picture as possible. I was well aware as I was writing that some critics would regard the examples as mere isolated aberrations and for them and for other readers who, whether convinced of the thesis or not, would like further evidence, I want here to bring forward a few extra significant examples.

The Canadian Institute Of Resources Law At Calgary, Constance D. Hunt Sep 1987

The Canadian Institute Of Resources Law At Calgary, Constance D. Hunt

Dalhousie Law Journal

When the University of Calgary's Law Faculty was established in 1976, one of its mandates was to develop a specialized program in resources and environmental law. This process was embarked upon immediately through the use of many resources law issues as teaching vehicles in firstyear courses such as constitutional and property law, and the development of an upper-year curriculum that featured several courses and programs in resources and environmental law. As well, generous contributions from Calgary law firms and corporations resulted in the partial endowment of a Chair of Natural Resources Law.


The Teaching Of International Law At The Université De Montréal: The 1971 To 1985 Period, Daniel Turp Sep 1987

The Teaching Of International Law At The Université De Montréal: The 1971 To 1985 Period, Daniel Turp

Dalhousie Law Journal

The teaching of International Law at the Universit6 de Montr6al has continued to be of primary importance during the 14 academic years comprised between the years 1971 to 1985. This importance is evidenced by staff members devoting themselves, on a full-time basis, to international law and by the significant number of guest professors, sessional lecturers and teaching assistants that have been involved in the teaching of international law.


Les Sciences Jurisdiques À L'Université Du Québec À Montréal: Fifteen Years Later, Robert D. Bureau, Carol Jobin Sep 1987

Les Sciences Jurisdiques À L'Université Du Québec À Montréal: Fifteen Years Later, Robert D. Bureau, Carol Jobin

Dalhousie Law Journal

The experiment of the Law Department as a new approach to legal education has been going on now for 15 years. It has directly involved more than 1,500 people as students, instructors (professors and sessional lecturers) and support staff (administrative and library personnel, etc.). This experiment has a unique identity, indeed a distinctive image, which has given rise to a certain amount of controversy in the Quebec legal milieu. Especially since the debates stemming from the publication of the Law and Learning Report, it seems that the experiment has also aroused a certain amount of curiosity in the Canadian ...

The Law School At Windsor 1967-1987: A Teenager Comes Of Age, Neil Gold, Julio R. Menezes

Dalhousie Law Journal

The University of Windsor was established by Act of the Legislature of Ontario on July 1, 1963, one hundred and six years following an enactment by the Province of Canada to establish its predecessor, Assumption College. The new University was a federation of this Catholic College and other Christian denominational institutions, together with Essex College, a non-denominational college.


International Law And The Grotian Heritage, L C. Green Sep 1987

International Law And The Grotian Heritage, L C. Green

Dalhousie Law Journal

Recent emphasis on codification of this or that aspect of international law has encouraged a number of writers to re-examine the "classics" with a view to ascertaining the extent to which we have moved from the 17th and 18th centuries and how far the views of the "teachers" are still relevant or may even today be regarded as lexferenda. Coincident with the fourth centenary of the birth of Grotius, the Interuniversitair Instituut voor International Recht T.M.C. Asser Instituut in cooperation with the Grotiana Foundation organized a commemorative colloquium in the Peace Palace and the Academy of International Law ...

Means, Ends And Original Intent: A Response To Charles Cooper, Michael Wells Jul 1987

Means, Ends And Original Intent: A Response To Charles Cooper, Michael Wells

Scholarly Works

Charles Cooper believes that the ninth amendment should be read at once more broadly and more narrowly than it is today. In his view, the intent of the Framers was to cabin the power of the federal government. By taking note in the ninth amendment of rights other than those enumerated in the first eight, they sought to ensure that the national government would not exercise powers beyond those listed in the Constitution. Since the aim of the ninth amendment was to keep the federal government one of limited power, it is inappropriate to apply the amendment to the states ...

The Law Of The American West: A Critical Bibliography Of The Nonlegal Sources, Charles F. Wilkinson May 1987

The Law Of The American West: A Critical Bibliography Of The Nonlegal Sources, Charles F. Wilkinson

Michigan Law Review

This article is an attempt to collect some of the books, fiction as well as nonfiction, that deal with the true sources of the law of the American West. My effort is only to identify readily available works, not the myriad government documents, diaries, doctoral theses, and out-of-print books that afford invaluable depth on individual topics. Nor is there any pretension to complete coverage. Inevitably, there will be omissions when the sweep is as broad as this article's. But I will omit none of my personal favorites, those many books that have enriched my life and allowed me one ...
