CONFERENCE: "The Transmission of Monarchical Power, from the Middle Ages to the Present" (Brussels, St Louis University, 21-22 May 2015)


(image source: Université St Louis)
Nomôdos announced the program of a conference dedicated to the "Transmission of Monarchical Power", hosted by the Research Centre for Institutional and Legal History (CRHIDI).


Summary:
L’année 2015 est l’occasion de fêter le 500e anniversaire de l’émancipation de Charles Quint et du début de son gouvernement personnel. De même, l’abdication du roi Albert II en faveur de son fils, Philippe, est encore un souvenir vif. Ces deux événements, en écho l’un avec l’autre, semblent l’occasion de mener et de développer une interrogation sur les processus de succession, de formation et de préparation d’héritiers dans des systèmes monarchiques et ce dans la longue durée.La succession d’un monarque ne se présente jamais simplement; elle ne peut généralement pas être appréhendée de façon univoque. Elle revêt toujours plus ou moins de fantasmes et de mise en scène du pouvoir. C’est en ces instants que le rituel du pouvoir tente de transcender les particularités et de gommer les différences afin de prôner l’union, l’unité, la fusion, etc., des composantes sociales soumises au gouvernement de l’ancien et du nouveau dirigeant. Mais comment penser la succession? Quels fondements doit-on lui fournir? Quelles bases juridiques, sociales, etc., donner à la succession ou à l’abdication?La succession est aussi un moment où les rênes du pouvoir semblent à certains instants évanescents. Qui gouverne réellement dans cet entre-deux de pouvoir(s)? Quelle prégnance garde l’ancien monarque? Quelle autonomie est laissée au nouveau dépositaire du pouvoir? Il est ici nécessaire d’étudier la logique des luttes internes du pouvoir à côté du rayonnement effectif de l’ancien ou du nouveau gouvernant.La succession du prince peut néanmoins devenir tragique et être annonciatrice d’une période de troubles et de déstabilisation. Pour prévenir ou expliquer de telles périodes, les questions suivantes méritent encore l’attention. Comment le souverain envisage-t-il sa succession, et de quelle façon met-il en œuvre sa décision? L’héritier/héritière est-il/elle formé(e) convenablement? Doit-on le préparer ou bien laisser «la fonction faire l’homme»? Peut-il/elle s’appuyer sur l’expérience de son prédécesseur? Doit-il/elle s’en distancier sans autre forme de procès? Quelles sont les premières décisions du nouveau gouvernant? Doit-il/elle inscrire ses pas dans les «vestiges» de son prédécesseur ou adopter une position de rupture radicale?Le thème est riche et doit permettre une approche doublement éclatée. Primo, elle doit être une invitation à penser de façon diachronique afin de confronter des expériences éloignées dans le temps, du moyen âge au XXIe siècle. Secundo, cette thématique est une invitation à traverser les frontières disciplinaires. Les points de vue de l’historien, du juriste (constitutionnaliste), voire de l’anthropologue vont pouvoir se confronter et permettre de canaliser ces approches multiples.

REVIEW (Juris Diversitas Series): A Study of Mixed Legal Systems: Endangered, Entrenched or Blended

Juris Diversitas - Thu, 04/02/2015 - 06:01

This review just appeared in the Journal of Legal Pluralism:
'This book's collection of interesting case studies of hybrid legal systems not only provides us useful insights regarding the ongoing process of mixing in general, but also in reference to the particular cases presented. It, therefore, is an important addition to the literature on mixed legal systems and comparative law in general, and will undoubtedly prove a boon to further research.'

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT: LEGAL PLURALISM IN EUROPE AND THE ORDRE PUBLIC EXCEPTION: NORMATIVE AND JUDICIAL PERSPECTIVES

Juris Diversitas - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 03:59
Trento, Faculty of Law, 16 and 17 April, 2015 The International Workshop draws its inspiration from the circumstance of several countries in Europe experiencing a growing number of cases in which individuals (mainly immigrants) claim to have a series of family and personal matters regulated by the law of their country of origin, under international private law.
In so far as this foreign law corresponds to – or is largely influenced by – Islamic law (or other religious law), domestic legal systems in Europe face the problem of reviewing the compatibility of such religiously inspired foreign law with domestic (and European) fundamental rights standards, mainly by applying the public policy (ordre public) exception which prevents the administrative application or the judicial enforcement of foreign law or foreign judicial or administrative decisions that are qualified as incompatible.The International Workshop aims at considering the current attitude shown  by  the judiciary in legal systems strongly influenced by Islamic law as well as in some European states, while ultimately focusing  on whether a shared European ordre public exception in the field of family law is emerging in case law.The program of this event is available from this link.

BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: Fundamental Rights in the EU

Juris Diversitas - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 03:53
A Matter for Two CourtsEdited by Sonia Morano-Foadi and Lucy Vickers
This collection joins the new and expanding scholarship on the protection of fundamental rights in Europe and reflects on the relationship between the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). The book questions whether the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty align the CJEU to the ECtHR’s interpretation and methods, triggering different processes of institutionalisation within a coherent European system. These issues are explored through a contextual analysis of areas of law such as equality rights in employment law, citizenship and migration, internet law and access to justice. This volume includes perspectives from the scholarly community as well as practitioners, judges and European policy makers. It also examines the state of accession of the EU to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and considers the legal implications of the interactions of the two courts for the protection of the fundamental rights of EU citizens and individuals legally residing in Europe.The volume is essential reading for practitioners, judges, European policy makers and members of the scholarly community working in this area of law.
Sonia Morano-Foadi is a Reader in Law and Lucy Vickers is a Professor in Law, both at Oxford Brookes University.

BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: Europe’s Justice Deficit?

Juris Diversitas - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 03:48

Edited by Dimitry Kochenov, Gráinne de Búrca and Andrew Williams
ENDORSEMENTS"The question of the EU’s justice deficit could not be of greater relevance. Both scholars and politicians have often argued that the economic and other benefits of the EU compensate for any democratic failings. Yet, as the eurocrisis renders these benefits less apparent, it becomes more appropriate than ever to ask whether it distributes them and any accompanying costs in a just way. The  responses of the contributors to this volume prove as disturbing  as they are informative."Professor Richard Bellamy, Director of the Max Weber Programme, European University Institute, Florence
"This is a remarkable volume which addresses a long-neglected question about the EU: situated between integration through market freedoms and an emerging constitutional project, how does the EU contribute to the achievement of justice? A set of lively, engaged and scholarly contributions which extend the boundaries of the debate. A must-read for all interested in European Studies."Professor Seyla Benhabib, Eugene Meyer Professor of Political Science and Philosophy at Yale University 
"The list of authors reads like a veritable “Who's Who of European studies”...The outcome is fascinating, enormously rich and diverse (with the authors occasionally disagreeing with each other) – just as Europe is. Once you have read it, you realize what an important void it has filled. It opens up a new, fresh perspective within the European studies, and I can safely predict that it will become a canon, by reference to which we will be discussing “justice in/of Europe” in the years to come."Wojciech Sadurski, Challis Professor of Jurisprudence, The University of Sydney Faculty of Law
"By arranging a multi-disciplinary discussion about justice in the EU “as a flow of ideas” this most engaging book offers a gripping account of justice as the proverbial contested concept…The editors have succeeded in bringing together a group of feisty scholars keen to present their rather diverse, and at times even exclusive, take on the meaning of justice...A must read for all interested in justice, nothwithstanding their own disciplinary home."Prof Antje Wiener, Chair in Political Science, especially Global Governance, University of Hamburg
The gradual legal and political evolution of the European Union has not, thus far, been accompanied by the articulation or embrace of any substantive ideal of justice going beyond the founders’ intent or the economic objectives of the market integration project. This absence arguably compromises the foundations of the EU legal and political system since the relationship between law and justice—a crucial question within any constitutional system—remains largely unaddressed. This edited volume brings together a number of concise contributions by leading academics and young scholars whose work addresses both legal and philosophical aspects of justice in the European context. The aim of the volume is to appraise the existence and nature of this deficit, its implications for Europe’s future, and to begin a critical discussion about how it might be addressed. There have been many accounts of the EU as a story of constitutional evolution and a system of transnational governance, but few which pay sustained attention to the implications for justice.The EU today has moved beyond its initial and primary emphasis on the establishment of an Internal Market, as the growing importance of EU citizenship and social rights suggests. Yet, most legal analyses of the EU treaties and of EU case-law remain premised broadly on the assumption that EU law still largely serves the purpose of perfecting what is fundamentally a system of economic integration. The place to be occupied by the underlying substantive ideal of justice remains significantly underspecified or even vacant, creating a tension between the market-oriented foundation of the Union and the contemporary essence of its constitutional system. The relationship of law to justice is a core dimension of constitutional systems around the world, and the EU is arguably no different in this respect.The critical assessment of justice in the EU provided by the contributions to this book will help to create a fuller picture of the justice deficit in the EU, and at the same time open up an important new avenue of legal research of immediate importance.

PHD/POSTDOC POSITION: "Discourses of Weakness and Resource Regimes" (July 1, 2015)


WHAT: Discourses of Weakness and Resource Regimes, PHD/POST DOC POSITION in the field of late medieval /early modern history, legal history, or ecclesiastical history
WHEN: starting July 1, 2015 (3-year contracts)
WHERE: MPI, Max-Planck Institut fur europaische Rechtsgeschichte
The Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History and the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main are partner institutions of the Collaborative Research Centre 1095 ‘Discourses of Weakness and Resource Regimes’. In this framework, the Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History offersTwo PhD / Post-doctoral Positions in the field of late medieval / early modern history, legal history or ecclesiastical history (starting July 1, 2015, or later; 3-year contracts)
Research project
A Collaborative Research Centre / CRC (‘Sonderforschungsbereich’ / ‘SFB’ in German) is an institution established at German universities for a period of up to twelve years that enables researchers to pursue an outstanding research programme, crossing the boundaries of disciplines, institutes and faculties. Financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), it facilitates scientifically ambitious, complex, long-term research by concentrating and coordinating the resources available at a university.The CRC 1095 ‘Discourses of Weakness and Resource Regimes’ at the Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, employs a transepochal and comparative approach in order to deal with the question of how discourses of weakness had an impact on the use of resources. These discourses can be observed in the history of all cultures at all times. Changes in the use of both material and immaterial resources constitute a special and important aspect of processes of historical transformation which will be addressed by historians, historians of science, anthropologists, philosophers, sinologists and legal historians within the framework of the new CRC 1095.CRC sub-project C 01 ‘Knowledge of the pragmatici. Presence and significance of pragmatic normative literature in Ibero-America in the late 16th and early 17th century’, led by Prof. Dr. Thomas Duve, reflects upon the significance of normative texts which addressed themselves primarily to practitioners – especially those who would nowadays be seen as part of moral theology or confessional literature. The respective texts were ‘weak’ insofar as they lacked theoretical complexity compared to erudite treatises; they were ‘strong’, however, in terms of pragmatic usefulness because they offered the reader adaptable bases of normative knowledge. There are some indications that these resources helped to establish, even minimally, conceptions of normative order in early modern empires such as the Spanish one. It is the objective of the sub-project to bring to light not only the practical significance but also the intellectual weight of a literary genre which has received little attention for a long time. Characteristic of this genre are condensation processes which might constitute a considerable achievement in abstraction.


Job description
In this context, the position holders are expected to research on one of the two following subjects:I. Martín de Azpilcueta’s Manual for Confessors and the phenomenon of epitomizationThe subject of the first research project are processes of condensation and, possibly, abstraction of canonistic or moral theological knowledge, which was already available in copious works. These processes of epitomization are to be analyzed with regard to a confession manual written by Martín de Azpilcueta (1492-1586), an important canon lawyer and moral theologian. His manual was published in 1552 in Portuguese, 1553 in Spanish and received, in a brief period, multiple editions and translations (1573 into Latin). It was one of the most influential works of moral theology in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, a ‘bestseller’ in the book trade with the New World – and itself subject to various processes of adaptation. The research project on Azpilcueta’s Manual for Confessors, in sum, should focus on the question how learned knowledge was condensed and transformed into a work of pragmatic literature.II. The Third Provincial Council of Mexico (1585) and the elaboration of a Manual for Confessors In a second study, a researcher is to investigate how the need for normative action which arose from a concrete historical situation found expression in a Mexican confession manual of the late 16th century. The research will be based on the recent edition of the Directorio de confesores y penitentes elaborated at the Third Provincial Council of Mexico (1585). The conciliar decrees which have also been published, show that the council fathers regarded the confession manual as an essential medium for translating their discussions. In brief, the research project will focus on the question how reflections on moral theology and canon law discussed during the provincial council were incorporated into such a pragmatic work. – In exceptional cases it is possible to answer the questions outlined above on the basis of the Third Provincial Council of Lima (1582-83) and its catechetic literature.
Qualification
The applicants must hold a university degree, preferably in one of the following disciplines: law, canon law, theology, history or philology. Language skills must include English as well as Latin (project I) or Spanish (project II). Moreover, researchers who do not speak German, are expected to learn it during their stay in Frankfurt. Furthermore, participation in the collective activities of the CRC is mandatory.Both doctoral and post-doctoral researchers can apply for the above mentioned positions. As regards doctoral students the PhD can be granted by the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, if the applicants fulfill the necessary requirements. However, candidates who wish to obtain their PhD from another university will also be admitted. Doctoral students will be given the opportunity to familiarize with their research topic.The selected candidates will be working at the Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History in Frankfurt am Main and will be integrated into the respective research fields of the Institute.
Application Process
Applications should contain a CV, copies of the relevant university certificates, a letter of motivation, the copy of a short research text written by the candidate (e.g. a seminar paper or a published article), and, if applicable, a list of publications and letters of recommendation.Candidates who would like to apply for a post-doctoral position, are additionally invited to submit a five-page outline of their research design for project I or project II (incl. a short bibliography).The applicants must clearly indicate whether the application is for a PhD position or a post-doctoral position, and whether (or not) – in the case of doctoral students – the candidate is already participating in a PhD program.The postgraduate remuneration is governed by the German Collective Agreement for the Public Sector (TVöD) EG 13 (65 %) and currently amounts to 2.268.25 Euro gross. In case of a postdoc-contract, the remuneration (E13) will be increased to 100% and currently amounts to 3.489,62 Euro gross. In both cases, the working time consists of 39 hours per week.The Max-Planck Society is committed to increase the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from these persons. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.Inquiries about the research program ‘Knowledge of the pragmatici’ can be directed to Otto Danwerth (danwerth@rg.mpg.de).We look forward to receiving your comprehensive online application by 15.05.2015 following the below mentioned link: http://mpier.iwww.mpg.de/job_offers

BOOK: Non-State Justice Institutions and the Law: Decision-Making at the Interface of Tradition, Religion and the State

Juris Diversitas - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 05:16
Palgrave Macmillan has just published Non-State Justice Institutions and the Law: Decision-Making at the Interface of Tradition, Religion and the State, edited by Matthias Kötter, Tilmann J. Röder, Gunnar Folke Schuppert, and Rüdiger Wolfrum.The book blurb reads:
Traditional forms of dispute resolution have become an important aspect in the political and academic debates on law and development and in numerous cases of constitution-making and judicial reform. This book focuses on decision-making by non-state justice institutions at the interface of traditional, religious, and state laws. The authors discuss the implications of non-state justice for the rule of law, presenting case studies on traditional councils and courts in Pakistan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Bolivia and South Africa. Looking at the legitimacy of non-state justice from various angles, this collection explores the ways in which non-state legal systems and governmental structures are embedded in official state justice institutions and how this affects the protection of human rights.

The book includes a chapter by our own Christa Rautenbach (North-West University (South Africa)) and Brian Z Tamanaha(Washington University (USA)), plenary speaker at our upcoming conference.

CFP: "Using the past: Romanists, totalitarianism and its legacy" (Rome, October 22-23, 2015)


WHAT: Using the past: Romanists, totalitarianism and its legacy, Call for Papers
WHEN: October, 22-23 2015WHERE: Rome, Villa Lante al Gianicolo, Institutum Romanum FinlandiaeDeadline, May 2, 2015

The purpose of the project “Reinventing the foundations of European Legal Culture 1934-1964” (foundlaw.org) is to trace the genealogy of the idea of a common European legal past, its creation, influence and implications of the theory as an ideological project.After the two previous events, the first one in Helsinki, in May 2014, and the second one in Frankfurt am Main, in June 2015, the research group is organizing a workshop in Rome on the problematic relationship between history of law and, in particular, Roman law scholars, and the dictatorial or totalitarian regimes, especially with regard to the Italian and German ones. We therefore invite papers that explore the approach of Romanists towards the regime and the influence it had on their studies. If and to what extent the works of scholars may be considered as a reaction against the dictatorial power, or means to support it. The papers may analyze the repercussions that the study of Roman Law under the regimes had on the Law in force at the time and the influence it exercised on the later scholars, also with regard to the foundation of a new idea of European common legal culture.
Confirmed keynote speakers are Lorena Atzeri (Università Statale, Milano), Cosimo Cascione (Università Federico II, Napoli), Mario Varvaro (Università di Palermo).Potential themes include, but are not limited to:– idealization of Rome and its history and its implications;– the influence of political circumstances and the experiences in Roman law scholarship;– the different narratives of ancient Roman law proposed by the Italian Romanists, in order either to support, or to criticize Fascism;– Roman Law in Italy between the regime and the new “Codice civile” of 1942;– the roots of the new European legal history as a reaction to the totalitarian past;– differences between German and Italian Roman law doctrine in perceiving the role of Roman law and their approach towards the regimes;– different interpretations of Roman law as a foundation of a new idea of Europe.
The conference is organized by the FoundLaw project, funded by the European Research Council.Please submit your abstract (300 words), in English, as a (word/pdf) file to Heta Björklund at foundlaw(a)gmail.com. Please include your name, academic affiliation and address in your email. The deadline for submission of abstracts is May 2, 2015. We will inform of the selections by the end of May.The language of the meeting is English. There is no registration fee. The organizers are unfortunately unable to aid in the travel arrangements or accommodation of participants.

BOOK: "Sanctuary and Crime in the Middle Ages, 400-1500 ", by Karl Shoemaker


Sanctuary and Crime in the Middle Ages, 400-1500, by Karl Shoemaker, (University of Wisconsin, Madison)
Sanctuary and Crime in the Middle Ages, 400–1500 rethinks the history of sanctuary protections for criminals in the Western legal tradition. From the twilight of the Roman Empire until the sixteenth century, every major medieval legal tradition afforded protections to fugitive criminals who took sanctuary in churches. Sanctuary-seeking criminals might have been required to perform penance or go into exile, but they were guaranteed immunity from corporal and capital punishment. In the sixteenth century, sanctuary protections were abolished throughout Europe, uprooting an ancient tradition and replacing it with a new set of juridical arguments about law, crime, and the power to punish.

After situating sanctuary law within early Christian and late Roman traditions, this book explores a rich range of medieval legal, ecclesiastical, and social sources, with special attention to the early English common law, and it concludes by examining the legal arguments that led to the abolition of sanctuary privileges and ushered in a new state-centered age of criminal deterrence and social control.

The book won the 2014 John Nicholas Brown Prize of the Medieval Academy. The Academy awards the prize "for a distinguished first book in the field of medieval studies judged by the selection committee to be of outstanding quality."

BOOK: "Advocates for the Oppressed: Hispanos, Indians, Genízaros, and Their Land in New Mexico", by Malcolm Ebright


Advocates for the Oppressed: Hispanos, Indians, Genízaros, and Their Land in New Mexico, by Malcolm Ebrightall information hereStruggles over land and water have determined much of New Mexico’s long history. The outcome of such disputes, especially in colonial times, often depended on which party had a strong advocate to argue a case before a local tribunal or on appeal. This book is partly about the advocates who represented the parties to these disputes, but it is most of all about the Hispanos, Indians, and Genízaros (Hispanicized nomadic Indians) themselves and the land they lived on and fought for. Having written about Hispano land grants and Pueblo Indian grants separately, Malcolm Ebright now brings these narratives together for the first time, reconnecting them and resurrecting lost histories. He emphasizes the success that advocates for Indians, Genízaros, and Hispanos have had in achieving justice for marginalized people through the return of lost lands and by reestablishing the right to use those lands for traditional purposes.

ARTICLE: "History, Reason, and Will in Modern Law" by Paulo Barrozo

Paulo Barrozo (Boston college, Law school) onHistory, Reason, and Will in Modern Law
full text here
Abstract:      
This article offers an interpretation of the intellectual and political origins of modern law in the nineteenth century and its consequences for contemporary legal thought. 
Social theoretical analyses of law and legal thought tend to emphasize rupture and change. Histories of legal thought tend to draw a picture of strife between different schools of jurisprudence. Such analyses and histories fail to account for the extent to which present legal thought is the continuation of a jurisprudential settlement that occurred in the nineteenth century. That settlement tamed the will of the masses under the influence of authoritative legal thought, conceptions of political morality, and a general sense of social evolution. 
The principal mechanism of the settlement was a compact between legal rationalism and historicism to which popular will acceded. After a period of polarization around the time of the American and French revolutions, nineteenth century legal rationalism came to see historical events as the outcome of the cunning operation of reason in the world, and legal historicism came to appeal to the rationalizations of legal reason in order to endow historical matter with both conceptual stability and intellectual authority. Popular will bought into both. Modern law and the main schools of legal thought have remained, ever since, bound to this convergence of reason and history in the face of will. Modern law is therefore as much about continuity as it is about rupture; as much about unity as it is about strife.

Magna Carta Uncovered, by Anthony Arlidge and Igor Judge
all information here.
2015 marks the 800th anniversary of the grant at Runnymede of Magna Carta.The story of how Magna Carta came into being, and has been interpreted since, and its impact on individual rights and constitutional developments has more twists and turns than any work of historical fiction.
The authors bring their wide legal experience and forensic skills to uncover the original meaning of the liberties enshrined in Magna Carta, and to trace their development in later centuries up to the drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America. By providing that the powers of the King were not unlimited, the Charter was groundbreaking, yet it was also a conservative document, following the form of Anglo-Saxon charters and seeking to return government to the ways of the Norman kings.
This book tells the enthralling, ultimately inspirational, story of Magna Carta in a concise and readable fashion and will captivate laymen and lawyers alike.

CFP: "Old and new worlds: the Global Challenges of Rural History" ( Lisbon, January 27-30 2016)


WHAT: Old and new worlds: the Global Challenges of Rural History, international conference

WHEN: January 27-30 2016

WHERE: Lisbon, ISCTE- University Institute of Lisbon

Deadline for submission of proposals: 15 April 2015
All information here
In the course of recent years, Rural History (broadly defined) has begun to move away from both its predominantly national or local focus and its interpretation bias towards Europe and the Western world. This is a very healthy shift, which we mean to uphold by choosing the relations between old and new worlds as the core subject for this Conference.Such relations between civilisations and cultures across the globe have had multiple effects over the last 500 years on agriculture, property, natural resources and rural societies. They brought about the circulation of people, plants, animals and diseases; transfers of techniques, knowledge, institutions and juridical norms; changes in diet habits, land uses and landscapes; extensive appropriation and expropriation of landholding, land use and property rights; and changes in produce and factor markets (land, capital, labour) at a global scale.


The growing keenness to research these global dynamics also drives some of the major theoretical, methodological and historiographical challenges now facing rural history. On the one hand, because such studies call for a wider dialogue among historians of several continents. On the other, because it tends to widen rural history from a specific disciplinary area into a broad research field, on which converge the interests of several other disciplines: from environmental to cultural history, from social to legal history, from economic history to the history of science, among others.The concern to open up and globalise research in rural history, in both the historical and the historiographical senses, draws the guideline for this international conference, which simultaneously harbours the V Encontro Rural RePort and the XV Congreso de Historia Agraria de la SEHA, to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, hosted by ISCTE- University Institute of Lisbon, on the 27-30 January, 2016.The conference is open to scholars of all nationalities, in all disciplinary areas and dealing with all historical periods. There will be three working languages: English, Portuguese and Spanish.

BOOK: " “The Best in the West”: Educator, Jurist, Arbitrator: Liber Amicorum in Honour of Professor William Butler" ed. Erpyleva N. Iu., Gashi-Butler M.E. (2014)

Concepts of Justness in Aristotle and Cicero are analysed. Both follow formal approach to Justness, proper to legal science. Looking for model of moral perfection and dignity Cicero appeals to the findings of Quintus Mucius Scaevola (II-I BC), founder of European legal science, who revealed the nature of just in proper application of formal equality (bonum et aequum). For Roman lawyers just person was a person that was following a model of a 'vir bonus' (good man). Abstract qualities of a good man were products of law and at the same time elemenst of legal system. The very conformity to the principles of law makes a participant of legal interaction 'good man'. Abstract notion of 'aequity' (justness) was seen as a source of law. In Byzantine times 'aequity' became a quality of the Emperor, while the just nature of law was substituted by 'justness' of the ruler. Some scholars connect the abstraction of 'aequity' with this new approach and deem Roman law texts corrupted in later times. However, the authenticity of the traditional texts can be proved.

BOOK: "The Law Emprynted and Englysshed: the Printing Press as an Agent of Change in Law and Legal Culture 1475-1642", by David J Harvey


What impact did the printing press – a new means of communicating the written word – have on early modern English lawyers? This book examines the way in which law printing developed in the period from 1475 up until 1642 and the start of the English Civil War. It offers a new perspective on the purposes and structures of the regulation of the printing press and considers how and why lawyers used the new technology. It examines the way in which lawyers adapted to the use of printed works and the way in which the new technology increased the availability of texts and books for lawyers and the administrative community. It also considers the wider humanist context within which law printing developed. The story is set against the backdrop of revolutionary changes in English society and the move not only to print the law, but also increase its accessibility by making information available in English. The book will be of interest to lawyers and legal historians, print and book historians and the general reader.

BOOK: Xavier PREVOST, Jacques Cujas, Humanist Legal Scholar [Travaux d'Humanisme et Renaissance, 541] (Geneva, Droz, April 2015), XVI + 592 p., ISBN 13978-2-600-01814-2, € 93,84



Nomôdos announced the publication by Droz (Series 'Travaux d'Humanisme et de Renaissance', vol. 541)  of the prize-winning doctoral thesis by Xavier Prevost (Professor of legal history, Bordeaux) on the French humanist Jacques Cujas. The publisher's website offers the possibility to buy a PDF of the work, including several non-printed annexes (total pages XVI + 864).

Summary
Jacques Cujas apparaît comme l’un des principaux représentants de l’humanisme juridique, courant qui introduit l’idée d’évolution dans la construction du droit et des institutions. Au fil de ses professorats, Cujas poursuit la critique humaniste en portant à son apogée la méthode historique. Il cherche à rétablir les textes dans leur version d’origine par la recherche des interpolations, tout en intégrant les dispositions commentées dans la longue durée. Il s’appuie tant sur sa maîtrise de la doctrine juridique, que sur sa vaste culture littéraire et philosophique. Ses travaux de philologue et d’éditeur restent d’utiles références, sans même évoquer ses reconstitutions commentées des ouvrages des juristes romains ou son analyse critique du corpus juris civilis. L’érudition ne tient cependant pas Cujas trop éloigné de la pratique, comme le prouvent ses consultations ou son étude de la féodalité. Soumis à l’épreuve de l’humanisme cujacien, le droit ressort transformé de la confrontation. Table of Contents:
