The Library Of Robert Morris, Antebellum Civil Rights Lawyer & Activist, Laurel Davis, Mary Sarah Bilder Sep 2019

The Library Of Robert Morris, Antebellum Civil Rights Lawyer & Activist, Laurel Davis, Mary Sarah Bilder

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The Robert Morris library, the only known extant, antebellum African American–owned library, reveals its owner’s intellectual commitment to full citizenship and equality for people of color. Although studies of lawyers’ libraries have focused on large collections, this article provides a model for interpreting small libraries, particularly where few personal papers remain extant.

Turning Points In The History Of St. Mary’S University School Of Law (1980–1988), Vincent R. Johnson Aug 2019

Turning Points In The History Of St. Mary’S University School Of Law (1980–1988), Vincent R. Johnson

St. Mary's Law Journal

St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas has existed for nearly a century. Thus far, there have been seven important written histories of St. Mary’s University School of Law, but no one has yet attempted to write a comprehensive history of the law school, nor have any members of the faculty published autobiographies. Having taught law at St. Mary’s since 1982, Professor of Law Vincent R. Johnson shares his first-hand account about the life of the law school during most of the 1980s (specifically 1980 to 1988). That period encompasses the bulk of the deanship of James …


On Hostility And Hospitality: Othering Pierre Legrand, Russell A. Miller Jul 2019

On Hostility And Hospitality: Othering Pierre Legrand, Russell A. Miller

Russell A. Miller

Pierre Legrand's return to the pages of the American Journal of Comparative Law after nearly twenty years is cause for reflection on the reasons for this prolific comparatist's absence from one of the discipline's leading scholarly fora. One reason is the widespread disdain aimed at Legrand as a result of his persistent, sharply critical, and often pointedly personal crusade against the discipline's accepted approaches and their most prominent practitioners. This is partly the nature of the article he publishes in this collection, which features a no-holds-bared, uncomplimentary assessment of the work of James Gordley. In this Article I argue that …


To Compare Or Not To Compare? Reading Justice Breyer, Russell A. Miller Jul 2019

To Compare Or Not To Compare? Reading Justice Breyer, Russell A. Miller

Russell A. Miller

Justice Breyer's new book The Court and the World presents a number of productive challenges. First, it provides an opportunity to reflect generally on extra-judicial scholarly activities. Second, it is a major and important - but also troubling - contribution to debates about comparative law broadly, and the opening of domestic constitutional regimes to external law and legal phenomena more specifically. I begin by suggesting a critique of the first of these points. These are merely some thoughts on the implications of extra-judicial scholarship. The greater portion of this essay, however, is devoted to a reading of Justice Breyer's book, …

Nathan Roscoe Pound And The Nazis, Peter Rees May 2019

Nathan Roscoe Pound And The Nazis, Peter Rees

Boston College Law Review

When Roscoe Pound, Dean of Harvard Law School, accepted an honorary degree from a leading German university in 1934, it was interpreted as a gesture of support for the Nazi Party. Was this a naïve misstep, or something more sinister? This Article addresses that question. It highlights previously unknown encounters between Pound and senior Nazi figures at the time, and an unusual relationship between Pound and a suspected Nazi agent that lasted throughout the Second World War, and beyond. These revelations necessarily bring into question Pound’s personal ethics and his professional responsibilities as a lawyer.

This article is the culmination of a ten-hour oral …

Mourning The Magnificent Yankee: The Funeral Of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Todd C. Peppers Jan 2019

Mourning The Magnificent Yankee: The Funeral Of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Todd C. Peppers

Scholarly Articles

Funerals of Supreme Court Justices are now complicated and highly choreographed affairs. Lying in repose in the Great Hall at the Supreme Court. Funeral services in the grand Washington National Cathedral. Eulogies from fellow Justices, former law clerks, and prominent legal figures. Live coverage by national television networks. But for one of the greatest jurists to sit on the Supreme Court, a simple Unitarian service and the rites accorded an old soldier sufficed.


Review Of Joel Richard Paul, Without Precedent: Chief Justice John Marshall And His Times, Pat Newcombe Jan 2019

Review Of Joel Richard Paul, Without Precedent: Chief Justice John Marshall And His Times, Pat Newcombe

Faculty Scholarship

This Article reviews Joel Richard Paul's book, Without Precedent: Chief Justice John Marshall and His Times. The Author found this scholarly work to be very readable. Paul relies on ample and deep primary sources, yet manages to present John Marshall in a very human and accessible way. This narrative would be an excellent selection for any academic or public library, especially those that collect in the American history area, and it is highly recommended.
