No doubt common law practitioners in other states, too, will find ready uses for a dictionary that translates civil law terminology into familiar concepts; they will know how 'naked ownership' is different from 'usufruct.' And since the civil law dominates the world's legal systems, this book will find a home with libraries and scholars the world over, anywhere there is a need to compare civil law terms with those of the common law.Quality ebook formatting from Quid Pro Books features active contents, linked notes and URLs, and hundreds of linked cross-references for ready association of related topics.

A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law: Volume 10
por Book 10
Long accepted as the standard code of Jewish law and practice, the Shulhan Aruch was written by Joseph Karo in 1565. This tenth and final volume of A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law by Rabbi Emanuel Quint represents a monumental and unprecedented achievement in the scholarship of rabbinic jurisprudence. In this restatement, as in all previous nine volumes, Rabbi Quint brings fresh insight, modern research methodology, and succinct explication to Hoshen haMishpat, one of the four sections of see more the Shulhan Aruch. A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law: Volume X¾Laws of Prohibition Against Damages of Another's Property, Direct and Indirect Damages, Informers, Laws of Assault, Obligation to a Fellow Jew, and Removal of Dangerous Conditions continues to open the brilliant halachic work of the Shulhan Aruch to the wider audience it deserves: to the educated layperson and advanced scholar alike. The result is a comprehensive, well-organized body of rabbinic jurisprudence, available to the English reader for the first time.Rabbi Quint, the cofounder of the Jerusalem Institute of Jewish Law (with Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz), an institute dedicated to the study and dissemination of Jewish civil law, brings his professional expertise to bear on the vast array of Jewish legal processes, procedures, and practices encoded here. The reader may be surprised and challenged in the discovery that such a meticulous legal¾yet not overly religious¾system fits under the category of Jewish law. In his unique position as ordained rabbi, successful lawyer, and distinguished Talmudic scholar, Rabbi Quint illuminates Judaism not only as a religion, but also a culture and community. Containing a wealth of relevant material for even the most talented comparative law students, this tenth volume contains topics such as prohibitions against damaging another's property, damages caused by one's property (such as animals), direct and indirect damages, informers, standards of care in guarding an animal, laws of assault, obligation to a fellow Jew, and removal of dangerous conditions. A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law: Volume X provides the author's own commentary and also incorporates the four centuries of scholarship since the Shulhan Aruch was written, including commentaries and responsa literature. Ample footnotes help to guide the reader every step of the way. If the Shulhan Aruch can be said to be the distilled essence of Jewish law, then A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law triumphs as a major judicial-literary landmark of its own.

por Clifford Stevens Walton
A thorough account of Spanish civil law and its influence. Originally published: Washington, D.C.: W.H. Lowdermilk & Co., 1900. xix, 672 pp. Spain has an extraordinarily rich legal history, one that reflects Roman, Gothic, Arabic, Papal, Holy Roman and French influences. It is equally notable for its innovative and progressive nature. It was the first nation to produce a published commercial code. Aragon possessed and exercised a writ of habeas corpus during the medieval era. Medieval see more Spanish law witnessed the invention of democratic principles that would form the basis of the Republic of Iceland, the Magna Charta and the American Declaration of Independence. And as the first great colonial power, Spain exported its legal ideas to the New World. This had a profound influence on the history of most Latin American nations and the Philippines. The study of Spanish and Spanish-influenced law has much to offer the student of legal history. Walton facilitates this study through lucid historical introductions, notes and translations of rare source materials.

Judges and Judging in the History of the Common Law and Civil Law: From Antiquity to Modern Times
por Paul Brand
In this collection of essays, leading legal historians address significant topics in the history of judges and judging, with comparisons not only between British, American and Commonwealth experience, but also with the judiciary in civil law countries. It is not the law itself, but the process of law-making in courts that is the focus of inquiry. Contributors describe and analyse aspects of judicial activity, in the widest possible legal and social contexts, across two millennia. The essays see more cover English common law, continental customary law and ius commune, and aspects of the common law system in the British Empire. The volume is innovative in its approach to legal history. None of the essays offer straight doctrinal exegesis; none take refuge in old-fashioned judicial biography. The volume is a selection of the best papers from the 18th British Legal History Conference.
