The "Continuous Voyage" Doctrine During The Civil War, And Now, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1915

The "Continuous Voyage" Doctrine During The Civil War, And Now, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

Mr. Atherly-Jones, in his Commerce in War, says that what the courts of the United States did, during the Civil War, was not to apply the principle of a continuous voyage (which had been originally asserted in support of national monopolies of colonial trade), to the carriage of contraband goods, still less to blockades; but to depart from the old rules of evidence.

An Anglo-American Prize Tribunal, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1915

An Anglo-American Prize Tribunal, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

One of the best achievements of The Hague Conference of 1907 was the scheme for an International Court of Appeal in Prize Cases. The world was not ready for it, and the differences of view between the greater and the lesser Powers have not unnaturally prevented its ratification. But is it not, under present circumstances, possible that a shorter step in the same direction might and could be taken by some of those Powers who are most concerned in the proper disposition of prize court proceedings?

Changes In International Law, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1915

Changes In International Law, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

Changes in international law, as they may occur from time to time, will always be of especial interest to the United States. We were the first power to recognize in the constitution of our government the existence of such a thing as international law, and the duty of enforcing it. That instrument, it will be recollected, declares that Congress shall have power to define and punish "offenses against the law of nations." Under this provision, our Supreme Court has said: "A right, secured by the law of nations to a nation or its people, is one the United States as ...


The Permanent Neutrality Treaties, Gordon E. Sherman Jan 1915

The Permanent Neutrality Treaties, Gordon E. Sherman

Faculty Scholarship Series

The present European war has thrown into sharp relief the status of those smaller governments which, although in nowise shorn of attributes of sovereignty within their own borders, have nevertheless been placed by virtue of most solemn inter-national guarantees in a position of perpetual neutrality towards all other Powers. They are not to wage offensive warfare, nor, if the obligations resulting from these guarantees are faithfully observed, may their territories be in any degree the theatre of hostilities. While the chief examples of this peculiar status,- Belgium, Luxemburg and Switzerland,-are plainly, by reason of restricted area and population, in ...


Written Acknowledgment Necessary To Waive The Statute Of Limitations, Charles E. Clark Jan 1915

Written Acknowledgment Necessary To Waive The Statute Of Limitations, Charles E. Clark

Faculty Scholarship Series

In Connecticut a statute provides that "In actions against the representatives of deceased persons, no acknowledgment or promise shall be sufficient evidence of a new or continuing contract to take the case out of the statute of limitations, unless the same be contained in some writing made or signed by the party to be charged thereby." There are similar statutes in other jurisdictions. Under such a statute the question may arise whether the bar of the statute of limitations is waived where the debtor before his death gives the creditor promissory notes of less amount than the face value of ...

Geology And Oil Resources Of The West Border Of The San Joaquin Valley North Of Coalinga, California, Us Department Of The Interior, Robert Anderson, Robert W. Pack

Federal Documents

The main purpose of this report is to present the geologic evidences of the existence of petroleum in the rocks along the foothills that form the western border of the San Joaquin Valley, Cal., between the Coalinga' oil district and Livermore Pass and to discuss the chances of finding oil in commercial quantity in this region. With this end in view a general description of the physical features of the region is given, with special reference to the geologic features which have a bearing on the presence or absence of petroleum and which have determined the conclusions reached regarding the ...

The Form Of Summons Under The Recent Michigan Judicature Act, W. Gordon Stoner Jan 1915

The Form Of Summons Under The Recent Michigan Judicature Act, W. Gordon Stoner

Articles

It would be rather remarkable if in revising such a large portion of the statutes as was undertaken by the Commission on Revision and Consolidation of Statutes of the State of Michigan, appointed in 1913, which reported to the legislature the recently enacted Judicature Act (Public Acts of Michigan, 1915, ยง 314), some ambiguity or uncertainty were not to appear in the revision. The Judicature Act is no exception to the general rule, as the lawyer who attempts to begin suit by summons under it will discover at the very outset.


A Four Year Course In Law, Henry M. Bates Jan 1915

A Four Year Course In Law, Henry M. Bates

Articles

In the February, 1914, number of The Alumnus, devoted in part to the Michigan Law School, some account was given of the large number of new courses which had been added recently to the curriculum. The courses commented upon in that discussion, besides one advanced course in procedure, deal mainly with what may be called extra-legal or at least extra-professional subjects, such as the History of English Law, the Philosophy of Law and advanced courses in Roman Law and Jurisprudence. Prior to this period of expansion in the law curriculum many other additions had been made to the list of ...

Jurisdictional Facts, John R. Rood Jan 1915

Jurisdictional Facts, John R. Rood

Articles

The advance sheets of the Northwestern Reporter for January 29th, 1915, contain two cases in which a supreme court declared proceedings that had been carried through to judgment void, (not merely voidable) because of the lack of a fact which the supreme court regarded as jurisdictional, (Sandusky Grain Co. v. Sanilac Circuit Judge (Mich. 1915), 150 N. W. 329 and Bombolis v. Minn. & St. L. R. Co. (Minn. 1914), 150 N. W. 385), and another case in which the court was equally divided as to whether the essential facts appeared (Fisher et al v. Gardnier et al. (Mich. 1915), 150 N. W. 358). Of course, it was not suspected by anyone when any of these cases was on trial in the first instance that there was any question as to jurisdiction, nor was there doubt that the judgment when rendered was valid and concluded the controversy; and in every one of them, as in nearly all such cases, relief from any real hardship could have been had by direct proceedings to vacate the objectionable judgment.


The Proposed Michigan Judicature Act, Edson R. Sunderland Jan 1915

The Proposed Michigan Judicature Act, Edson R. Sunderland

Articles

The Michigan Legislature, at its last session, passed an act (No. 286, Public Acts of 1913) providing for the appointment of a Commission to revise and consolidate the laws of the State relating to procedure. The Governor appointed Alva M. Cummins, J. Clyde Watt, and Mark W. Stevens as members of this commission, and the result of their labors has just appeared in the form of a proposed bill regulating the entire subject of procedure in all the courts of the State. The bill is a long one, embracing 565 printed pages, but it is much less voluminous than the ...


Should Applicants For Admission To The Bar Be Required To Take A Law School Course?, Henry M. Bates Jan 1915

Should Applicants For Admission To The Bar Be Required To Take A Law School Course?, Henry M. Bates

Articles

If the requirements for admission to the bar had been advanced in any thing like equal degree with the progress made in law schools, there would be unqualified reasons for rejoicing in the prospect. Unfortunately, however, this is far from the case, though some notable advances even in this respect have been made. It is remarkable and unfortunate that in America and in Great Britain, whose system of law is undoubtedly the most difficult of all systems in the world to master, we require no institutional or school training of the men who are to fill the important functions of ...

Breach Of Landlord's Covenant As Defense To Action For Rent, Ralph W. Aigler Jan 1915

Breach Of Landlord's Covenant As Defense To Action For Rent, Ralph W. Aigler

Articles

It is undoubtedly well settled that if the agreement to pay rent is dependent upon the performance by the landlord of some undertaking on his part, the failure by the landlord so to perform is a good defense to an action for the rent. It is equally well settled that if the agreements are independent such failure by the landlord is no defense. The difficulty arises in determining whether the agreements are dependent or independent. That question is one of construction, and it cannot be expected that all the cases may be satisfactorily reconciled. Two very late cases involving this ...
