Law And Phrenology, Pierre Schlag Jan 1997

Law And Phrenology, Pierre Schlag

Articles

As the intellectual credentials of American law become increasingly dubious, the question arises: how has this discipline been intellectually organized to sustain belief among its academic practitioners? This Commentary explores the nineteenth-century pseudo-science of phrenology as a way of gaining insight into the intellectual organization of American law. Although there are, obviously, significant differences, the parallels are at once striking and edifying. Both phrenology and law emerged as disciplinary knowledges through attempts to cast them in the form of sciences. In both cases, the "sciences" were aesthetically organized around a fundamental ontology of reifications and animisms -- "faculties" in the case ...

What's In A Name: An Argument For A Small Business Limited Liability Entity Statute (With Three Subsets Of Default Rules), Dale A. Oesterle, Wayne M. Gazur

Articles

The recent proliferation of small business entity forms is primarily a result of their tax characterization. With the recent adoption of the IRS "check-the-box" regulations and, as a consequence, the elimination of traditional tax distinctions, many of these forms have lost their appeal. This article proposes starting over with one form, the "limited liability entity." Part I discusses the history of small business forms. Part II analyzes the current forms in light of the recent check-the- box legislation. Part III discusses the necessity of and rationale behind a unified entity statute. Finally, Part IV outlines a unified limited liability entity ...

Playing Defense, Robert F. Nagel Jan 1997

Playing Defense, Robert F. Nagel

Articles

Noting that the Romer opinion condemns the motives behind Amendment 2 without pausing even briefly to examine the social context in which it was enacted, Professor Nagel describes the decision as a model of the intolerant impulse in action. He traces this impulse to the Justices' unwillingness to examine their own role--and that of the rest of the constitutional law establishment--in creating the underlying conditions that produced Amendment 2.

In order to identify those conditions, Professor Nagel analyzes the primary document used by Colorado for Family Values during its campaign on behalf of the initiative. He argues that this document ...
