'A Literary Man & A Merchant': The Legal Career Of Sir William Young, William H. Laurence Oct 2009

'A Literary Man & A Merchant': The Legal Career Of Sir William Young, William H. Laurence

PhD Dissertations

Sir William Young (1799-1887) of Halifax was a leading lawyer, served as Attorney General, promoted legal reforms in the Assembly, sat as Chief Justice of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court, and promoted the establishment of Dalhousie University's Faculty of Law. He thereby fulfilled a variety of roles in his pursuit of two professional goals he had set at an early age, namely material success and intellectual interest. Nonetheless, his career in the law has been mostly ignored. By examining Young's legal career in detail, especially by paying attention to the duties he performed in his professional roles, this thesis seeks …

Judicial Diversity On State Supreme Courts, John D. Castiglione, Gregory L. Acquiaviva Jan 2009

Judicial Diversity On State Supreme Courts, John D. Castiglione, Gregory L. Acquiaviva

John D. Castiglione

State courts of last resort are, in many ways, the primary expositors of law in the United States. Criminal law, contracts, family law, wills, trusts, and estates -- just to name a few -- fall within their purview. And yet, we know surprisingly little about just who sits on these courts -- state supreme court judges have been described as “perhaps the most important and least written about group within the judicial system” of the United States. Indeed, the last study on the characteristics and experiences of the state supreme court justices is almost fifteen years old. This Article presents …

Meese, Edwin Iii (1931 - ), Gary L. Mcdowell

Jepson School of Leadership Studies articles, book chapters and other publications

U.S. attorney general. Born in Oakland, Calif., Meese received a B.A. from Yale (1953) and an LL.B. from the University of California, Berkeley (1956). After working at the Piedmont, Calif., Recreation Department, he became deputy district attorney in Alameda county, Calif., in 1959. In 1967, he joined the staff of Governor Ronald Reagan as legal affairs secretary, holding this post until 1969, when he became Reagan's executive assistant and chief of staff. He also served as the chairman of the Governor's Emergency Operations council during the urban and campus disorders of the 1960s and early 1970s.

Isaiah And His Young Disciples: Justice Brandeis And His Law Clerks, Todd C. Peppers Jan 2009

Isaiah And His Young Disciples: Justice Brandeis And His Law Clerks, Todd C. Peppers

Scholarly Articles

It cannot be said that Louis Dembitz Brandeis has suffered from a lack of scholarly attention. Brandeis is considered to be one of the most influential Justices in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court, and scores of books and law-review articles have been written about Brandeis the lawyer, the political insider, the Zionist, and the Justice. A case can be made, however, that history has not fully recognized the important and lasting contribution that Brandeis made to the development of the institutional rules and norms surrounding the Supreme Court law clerk, an oversight that this essay seeks to rectify.

Lessons In Legal Ethics From Reading About The Life Of Lincoln, Eugene R. Gaetke Jan 2009

Lessons In Legal Ethics From Reading About The Life Of Lincoln, Eugene R. Gaetke

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Abraham Lincoln is an icon of American history. He is prominently named in various opinion polls as among the best Presidents in the history of the United States. His stature as a great President is perhaps best reflected currently in the stream of events constituting a national two-year celebration of his 1809 birth. Even before that, however, scholarly and popular interest and Lincoln’s life and Presidency continued unabated, as indicated by the steady publication and success of books about him. Notable among these works is David Herbert Donald’s best-selling biography of our sixteenth President titled Lincoln.

Although Mr. Donald’s …
