Doctrine Of Stare Decisis, Edward B. Whitney Dec 1904

Doctrine Of Stare Decisis, Edward B. Whitney

Michigan Law Review

I am requested to present a paper whose theme is suggested by the Present Problems of Private Law, as distinguished from law that has a constitutional or international aspect. I doubt whether there is any other section of the Congress whose themes are so difficult to select. We cover, indeed, those branches that mainly concern the ordinary, plain, steady-going, stay-at-home, law-abiding citizen,-that multitude of questions among which most legal practitioners everywhere are wearing out their lives; working every day and all day upon Present Problems of Private Law. Each of those problems interests the parties to the particular litigation or …


The Old Common Law And The New Trusts, Ditlew M. Frederiksen Dec 1904

The Old Common Law And The New Trusts, Ditlew M. Frederiksen

Michigan Law Review

T HE Civil Code of Porto Rico, our latest Roman American code, gives interesting proof of the fact that the two systems of law, the Roman and the English, which control most of the nations of the civilized world and their dependencies, are, in their essence, but slightly different enunciations of the same principles of natural justice. The parent of the Civil Code of Porto Rico1 is the Spanish Civil Code,2 in force in Spain since May I, 1889, and extended to Cuba, Porto Rico, and the Philippines on July 31, 1889. The Spanish Civil-Code is the result of the …

Doctrine Of Waiver, Colin P. Campbell Nov 1904

Doctrine Of Waiver, Colin P. Campbell

Michigan Law Review

There is probably no doctrine of our law so much neglected in scientific discussion, and in legal text-books, as this principle which forms the theme of our essay. The reason for this is difficult to assign, for in point of importance this doctrine takes first rank; and while its boundaries are somewhat confused with the lines of demarcation between the law of contracts and the doctrine of equitable estoppel, it is in reality based upon a body of well established principles. Although much confusion among the cases in which this doctrine has been applied must be conceded, this disorder may …


Surrender, Herbert Thorndike Tiffany Nov 1904

Surrender, Herbert Thorndike Tiffany

Michigan Law Review

A "Surrender" is defined by Lord Coke as a yielding up of an estate for life or years to him that hath an immediate estate in reversion or remainder, wherein the estate for life or years may drown by mutual agreement between them. This statement has been followed, more or less closely, by such other writers as have undertaken to define the term, and there has never been any question made as to its substantial correctness. A surrender, then, is a particular mode or form of transfer, which derives its distinguishing characteristics from the fact that it is made by …

Russian Raids On Neutral Commerce, Edwin Maxey Nov 1904

Russian Raids On Neutral Commerce, Edwin Maxey

Michigan Law Review

The capture made by the Russian volunteer vessels in the Red Sea and by the Vladivostock fleet off the coast of Japan have revivified the question of the extent to which a belligerent may lawfully go in interfering with neutral commerce. Perhaps no question of international law has been prolific of more disputes than that of neutral rights. The intensity of feeling and desire for advantage incident to war are apt to cause belligerents to overlook neutral rights, and in their zeal to cripple an immediate enemy, to forget that they in turn will become neutrals and be transfixed by …
