A Closer Look: A Symposium Among Legal Historians And Law Librarians To Uncover The Spanish Roots Of Louisiana Civil Law, Vicenç Feliú, Dennis Kim-Prieto, Teresa Miguel

Vicenç Feliú

The debate regarding whether the origin of Louisiana civil law is based in the Spanish or in the French legal tradition has been ongoing since that state’s incorporation into the United States as a result of the Louisiana Purchase. Distinguished legal scholars have argued in favor of one tradition being dominant over the other, and each has been staunch in support of that view. This article proposes and demonstrates that the Spanish, not French, civil law had an enormous influence on the creation and evolution of Louisiana civil law, and that this legacy resonates today. The article begins with ...

Underlying Theoretical Difficulties In The Conception Of Individual Rights In American Constitutional Law, Steven J. Andre 2010 Law Office of Steven J. Andre

Underlying Theoretical Difficulties In The Conception Of Individual Rights In American Constitutional Law, Steven J. Andre

Steven J. Andre

ABSTRACT: Two competing perspectives regarding the individual’s relationship with government pervade American legal thought. Our nation has its foundation in a perspective that considers the citizen as sovereign and the State as merely the instrument of the citizenry’s dictate. Another perspective with roots deep in European thought considers the State to be the embodiment of the best interests of the populace and regards government as naturally destined to lead the citizenry accordingly. Aspects of both perspectives are implicit in legislation and judicial reasoning concerning the relative roles of individual and State. The first, the common law American perspective ...

The Irrepressible Myth Of Klein, Howard M. Wasserman 2010 Florida International University College of Law

The Irrepressible Myth Of Klein, Howard M. Wasserman

Howard M Wasserman

The Reconstruction-era case of United States v. Klein remains the object of a “cult” among commentators and advocates, who see it as a powerful separation of powers precedent. In fact, Klein is a myth—actually two related myths. One is that it is opaque and meaninglessly indeterminate because, given its confusing and disjointed language, its precise doctrinal contours are indecipherable; the other is that Klein is vigorous precedent, likely to be used by a court to invalidate likely federal legislation. Close analysis of Klein, its progeny, and past scholarship uncovers three identifiable core limitations on congressional control over the workings ...
