Agenda: Boundaries And Water: Allocation And Use Of A Shared Resource, University Of Colorado Boulder. Natural Resources Law Center

Boundaries and Water: Allocation and Use of a Shared Resource (Summer Conference, June 5-7)

Conference organizers and/or faculty included University of Colorado School of Law professors David H. Getches, Lawrence J. MacDonnell and Charles F. Wilkinson.

Boundaries and Water: Allocation and Use of a Shared Resource is the topic of the Center's annual summer program on water this June. Most of the major rivers in the western United States are shared between two or more states. Often tribal governments play an important role in water allocation and use decisions. International considerations also may be involved in some cases. These interjurisdictional issues extend to groundwater as well as surface water.

This conference will provide the …

Towards An/Other Legal Education: Some Critical And Tentative Proposals To Confront The Racism Of Modern Legal Education, Richard F. Devlin Frsc

Articles, Book Chapters, & Popular Press

It seems to me that by drawing on the myth of Prometheus, Harry Arthurs has struck an important chord that we may find will resonate throughout the papers that are to be presented today. Particularly, by emphasizing the idea of being "unbound," President Arthurs has opened up a conversation that is premised upon the connection between law and freedom. I propose to take up and expand that conversation and, hopefully, to give it a significantly different orientation. Specifically, I want to identify and attempt to come to terms with an issue which, I fear, does not engender sufficient concern within …

Possession And Title To Land In English Law, Kent Mcneil Jan 1989

Possession And Title To Land In English Law, Kent Mcneil

Articles & Book Chapters

The common law relating to land relies heavily on possession as a source of title and proprietary rights. Even a trespasser who wrongfully takes possession of land acquires a title to it that is good against anyone who cannot prove he or she has a better title. This is due in part to the rule that title is presumed from possession, but in addition it relies upon the incapacity of an outside claimant to rely on a jus tertii. In other words, the claimant is barred from pointing to a third party’s title under which he or she does not …


The Movement To Assimilate The American Indians: Jurisprudential Study, John W. Ragsdale Jr Jan 1989

The Movement To Assimilate The American Indians: Jurisprudential Study, John W. Ragsdale Jr

Faculty Works

In 1934, the United States made a revolutionary shift in Indian policy. Laws were passed that ended most assimilation measures and began, instead, a preservation and promotion of tribalism. Why did this happen? What changes in American thought, politics and economy could precipitate such a reversal? Felix Cohen, a former special assistant to the Attorney General, and known as the "Blackstone of American Indian Law," noted: "Like the miner's canary, the Indian marks the shifts from fresh air to poison gas in our political atmosphere; and our treatment of Indians, even more than our treatment of other minorities, reflects the …


Congressional Abrogation Of Indian Treaties: Reevaluation And Reform, Michael Townsend Jan 1989

Congressional Abrogation Of Indian Treaties: Reevaluation And Reform, Michael Townsend

Articles

The treaties between the United States and the Indians constitute a critical recognition and guarantee of Indian rights. They envision a "measured separatism"' for an important minority that is determined to maintain a distinct cultural and political identity.' Non-treaty rights are fragile: The Supreme Court has held that Indians are not citizens within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment,' and that Congress has "plenary power" over Indian affairs by virtue of its guardianship over their interests. Moreover, the United States has ended the formal negotiation process with the Indians, and apparently no further treaties will be concluded. Thus, Congress' power …


The Crown’S Title To Lands In England, Kent Mcneil Jan 1989

The Crown’S Title To Lands In England, Kent Mcneil

Articles & Book Chapters

A fundamental principle of the common law, stemming from the doctrine of tenures, provides that the Crown has the underlying or radical title to all land within its common law dominions. Private persons and corporations do not “own” land; instead, they hold estates in land that are presumed to be derived from Crown grants. This common law edifice is built on the legal fiction that the Crown once possessed and therefore owned all the lands in England. As this is known to be a fiction, all it does is give the Crown its underlying title and thus a right to …
