General Principles of Law: European and Comparative Perspectives

Stefan Vogenauer

General Principles of Law: European and Comparative Perspectives by Stefan VogenauerExamining general principles of law provides one of the most instructive examples of the intersection between EU law and comparative law. This collection draws on the expertise of high-profile and distinguished scholars to provide a critical examination of this interaction. It shows how general principles of EU law need to be responsive to national laws. In addition, it is clear that the laws of the Member States have no choice but to be responsive to the general principles which are developed through EU law. Viewed through the perspective of proportionality, legal certainty, and fundamental...

Principled Reasoning in Human Rights Adjudication

Se-shauna Wheatle

Principled Reasoning in Human Rights Adjudication by Se-shauna WheatleImplied constitutional principles form part of the landscape of the development of fundamental rights in common law jurisdictions, affecting issues ranging from the remuneration of judges to the appropriation of property by the state. Principled Reasoning in Human Rights Adjudication offers thematic analysis of the use of the implied constitutional principles of the rule of law and separation of powers in human rights cases. The book examines the functions played by those principles in rights adjudication in Australia, Canada, the Commonwealth Caribbean, and the United Kingdom. It argues that...

Sources of Law, Legal Change, and Ambiguity

Alan Watson

Sources of Law, Legal Change, and Ambiguity by Alan WatsonWhy is the law notoriously unclear, arcane, slow to change in the face of changing circumstances? In this sweeping comparative analysis of the lawmaking process from ancient Rome to the present day, Alan Watson argues that the answer has largely to do with the mixed ancestry of modern law, the confusion of sources

Two: The Machine of Political Theology and the Place of Thought

Roberto Esposito

Two: The Machine of Political Theology and the Place of Thought by Roberto EspositoThis book describes the historical underpinnings of political theology that continue to exert their influence. The confluence of Roman and Christian notions on the person fuels an exclusionary mechanism that unites by dividing people. Restoring thought to an impersonal place of universal access can help to end this oppressive conceptual regime.

Constitutional Courts in Comparison: The US Supreme Court and the German Federal Constitutional Court

Ralf Rogowski

Constitutional Courts in Comparison: The US Supreme Court and the German Federal Constitutional Court by Ralf Rogowski

Constitutional litigation in general attracts two distinct types of conflict: disputes of a highly politicized or culturally controversial nature and requests from citizens claiming a violation of a fundamental constitutional right. The side-by-side comparison between the U.S. Supreme Court and the German Federal Constitutional Court provides a novel socio-legal approach in studying constitutional litigation, focusing on conditions of mobilisation, decision-making and implementation.

This updated and revised second edition includes a number of new contributions on the political status of the...

Divergences in Private Law

Andrew Robertson

Divergences in Private Law by Andrew RobertsonThis book is a study of doctrinal and methodological divergence in the common law of obligations. It explores particular departures from the common law mainstream and the causes and effects of those departures. Some divergences can be justified on the basis of a need to adapt the common law of contract, torts, equity and restitution to local circumstances, or to bring them into conformity with local values. More commonly, however, doctrinal or methodological divergence simply reflects different approaches to common problems, or different views as to what justice or policy requires in particular...

The Common Law of Obligations: Divergence and Unity

Andrew Robertson

The Common Law of Obligations: Divergence and Unity by Andrew RobertsonThe development of the law of obligations across the common law world has been, and continues to be, a story of unity and divergence. Its common origins continue to exert a powerful stabilising influence, carried forward by a methodology that places heavy weight on the historical foundations of legal principles. Divergence is, however, produced by numerous factors, including national and international human rights instruments, local statutory regimes, civil law influences, regional harmonisation, local circumstances and values and different political and legal cultures. The essays in this collection...

Making We the People

Chaihark Hahm & Sung Ho Kim

Making We the People by Chaihark Hahm & Sung Ho KimWhat does it mean to say that it is 'we the people' who 'ordain and establish' a constitution? Who are those sovereign people, and how can they do so? Interweaving history and theory, constitutional scholar Chaihark Hahm and political theorist Sung Ho Kim attempt to answer these perennial questions by revisiting the constitutional politics of postwar Japan and Korea. Together, these experiences demonstrate the infeasibility of the conventional assumption that there is a clearly bounded sovereign 'people' prior to constitution-making which may stand apart from both outside influence and troubled...

The Legal Treatment of Muslim Minorities in Italy: Islam and the Neutral State

Dr. Andrea Pin

The Legal Treatment of Muslim Minorities in Italy: Islam and the Neutral State by Dr. Andrea Pin

Islam is a growing presence practically everywhere in Europe. In Italy, however, Islam has met a unique model of state neutrality, religious freedom and church and state collaboration. This book gives a detailed description of the legal treatment of Muslims in Italy, contrasting it with other European states and jurisprudence, and with wider global tendencies that characterize the treatment of Islam. Through focusing on a series of case studies, the author argues that the relationship between church and state in Italy, and more broadly in Europe, should be reconsidered both to secure religious...

Crafting Courts in New Democracies

Matthew C. Ingram

Crafting Courts in New Democracies by Matthew C. IngramThe role of Latin American courts in facilitating democracy and economic liberalization is considerable. But while national 'high courts' have been closely studied, the form, function, and empowerment of local courts are still not well understood. In Crafting Courts in New Democracies, Matthew C. Ingram fills this gap by examining the varying strength of local judicial institutions in Brazil and Mexico since the 1980s. Combining statistical analysis and in-depth qualitative research, Ingram offers a rich account of the politics that shape subnational court reform in the region's two largest...

Networking the Rule of Law: How Change Agents Reshape Judicial Governance in the EU

Dr. Cristina Dallara & Dr. Daniela Piana

Networking the Rule of Law: How Change Agents Reshape Judicial Governance in the EU by Dr. Cristina Dallara & Dr. Daniela Piana

Judicial networks have proved effective in influencing recent judicial policies enacted by both old and new EU member states. However, this influence has not been standard. This volume seeks to improve our understanding of how networks function, as well as the extent they matter in the governance of a constitutional democracy. The authors examine the judicial function of networks, the way they cross the legal and territorial borders that confine the jurisdiction of the domestic institutions, and whether or not they are independent of the capacity and the leadership of their members.

UK, EU and Global Administrative Law

Paul Craig

UK, EU and Global Administrative Law by Paul CraigPaul Craig's analysis of UK, EU and global administrative law examines the challenges facing each system and reveals the commonalities in and differences between their foundational assumptions. The challenges which they face may be particular to that legal order, endemic to any legal system of administrative law or the result of interaction between the three systems. The inter-relationship between the three levels is important. The legal and practical reality is that developments at one level can have an impact on the other two. Legal doctrine fashioned at the national level may therefore inform...

Jewish Law and Contemporary Issues

J. David Bleich & Arthur J. Jacobson

Jewish Law and Contemporary Issues by J. David Bleich & Arthur J. JacobsonOrganized as a series of authoritative discussions, this book presents the application of Jewish law - or Halakhah - to contemporary social and political issues. Beginning with the principle of divine revelation, it describes the contents and canons of interpretation of Jewish law. Though divinely received, the law must still be interpreted and 'completed' by human minds, often leading to the conundrum of divergent but equally authentic interpretations. Examining topics from divorce to war and from rabbinic confidentiality to cloning, this book carefully delineates the issues presented in each...

Proof of Causation in Tort Law

Sandy Steel

Proof of Causation in Tort Law by Sandy SteelCausation is a foundational concept in tort law: in claims for compensation, a claimant must demonstrate that the defendant was a cause of the injury suffered in order for compensation to be awarded. Proof of Causation in Tort Law provides a critical, comparative and theoretical analysis of the general proof rules of causation underlying the tort laws of England, Germany and France, as well as the exceptional departures from these rules which each system has made. Exploring the different approaches to uncertainty over causation in tort law, Sandy Steel defends the justifiability of some of these...
