  • The Changing Law By Denning ()
    "The book is not intended to be an exposition of legal propositions. It is only an attempt to draw a picture of the changes that are taking place. The reason for the title "The Changing Law" is because so many people think that the law is certain and that it can only be changed by Parliament. The truth is that the law if often uncertain and it is continually being changed, or perhaps I should say developed, by the judges. In theory the judges do not make law. They only expound it. But as no one knows what the law is until the judges expound it, it follows that they make it. The process of gradual change has been the very life of the common law. The legal profession has usually found itself divided into two camps, those who want to make a change and those who prefer things to stay as they are; and between the two, we have somehow usually found the happy mean. ... If the common law is to retain its place as the greatest system of law that the world has ever seen, it cannot stand still whilst everything else moves on. It must develop too. It must adapt itself to the new conditions. In these lectures, I have shown how this is being done." -- from the Preface, p. vii-viii.

  • Problems of Jurisprudence By Posner ()

    In this book, one of our country’s most distinguished scholar-judges shares with us his vision of the law. For the past two thousand years, the philosophy of law has been dominated by two rival doctrines. One contends that law is more than politics and yields, in the hands of skillful judges, correct answers to even the most difficult legal questions; the other contends that law is politics through and through and that judges wield essentially arbitrary powers. Rejecting these doctrines as too metaphysical in the first instance and too nihilistic in the second, Richard Posner argues for a pragmatic jurisprudence, one that eschews formalism in favor of the factual and the empirical. Laws, he argues, are not abstract, sacred entities, but socially determined goads for shaping behavior to conform with society’s values.

    Examining how judges go about making difficult decisions, Posner argues that they cannot rely on either logic or science, but must fall back on a grab bag of informal methods of reasoning that owe less than one might think to legal training and experience. Indeed, he reminds us, the greatest figures in American law have transcended the traditional conceptions of the lawyer’s craft. Robert Jackson did not attend law school and Benjamin Cardozo left before getting a degree. Holmes was neither the most successful of lawyers nor the most lawyerly of judges. Citing these examples, Posner makes a plea for a law that frees itself from excessive insularity and takes all knowledge, practical and theoretical, as grist for its mill.

    The pragmatism that Posner espouses implies looking at problems concretely, experimentally, without illusions, with an emphasis on keeping diverse paths of inquiry open, and, above all, with the insistence that social thought and action be evaluated as instruments to desired human goals rather than as ends in themselves. In making his arguments, he discusses notable figures in jurisprudence from Antigonc to Ronald Dworkin as well as recent movements ranging from law and economics to civic republicanism, and feminism to libertarianism. All are subjected to Posner’s stringent analysis in a fresh and candid examination of some of the deepest problems presented by the enterprise of law.

Advocacy is a skill that can always be improved, whether the practitioner is renowned or a novice. This is a book for the new comer, an explanation and illustration of the essential first steps along the road to renown.

  • Conflict of Laws 2e By Setalvad ()
    Conflict of Laws is a field of law which is not very widely known to the ordinary law practitioner. It has to be considered only if a particular litigation has a foreign element as, for example, when the contract in issue was entered into in another country or was to be performed in another country. This is only one example, and there are numerous other situations where the principles of confl ict of laws may have to be applied: if parties were married abroad; if the deceased was domiciled abroad; if the company was incorporated abroad, etc. Resort to the rules of confl ict of laws may be necessary in the most diverse situations. This branch of law is likely to be of growing importance in India as there is increasing international trade, more cross-border investment and, more Indians live and settle outside India. This book covers the subject extensively. It considers international conventions in the field, the law in England, the law in some Common Law countries and the law in India. Apart from some provisions in the Civil Procedure Code relating to the enforcement and execution of foreign judgments, and the laws relating to foreign awards, there are few Indian decisions on the subject. It is, therefore, absolutely necessary to consider the rules of law developed in England and other Common Law countries as well as the international conventions laying down confl ict of laws rules in several fi elds. Such conventions offer guidance to our courts as they law down what our Supreme Court has called ‘transnational’ rules of law. There is a detailed synopsis at the beginning of each chapter setting out its contents in detail: this should be useful to the busy practitioner. The book should find its place in the library of any lawyer practising Civil Law in India.

  • How Judges Think By Posner ()

    A distinguished and experienced appellate court judge, Richard A. Posner offers in this new book a unique and, to orthodox legal thinkers, a startling perspective on how judges and justices decide cases. When conventional legal materials enable judges to ascertain the true facts of a case and apply clear pre-existing legal rules to them, Posner argues, they do so straightforwardly; that is the domain of legalist reasoning. However, in non-routine cases, the conventional materials run out and judges are on their own, navigating uncharted seas with equipment consisting of experience, emotions, and often unconscious beliefs. In doing so, they take on a legislative role, though one that is confined by internal and external constraints, such as professional ethics, opinions of respected colleagues, and limitations imposed by other branches of government on freewheeling judicial discretion. Occasional legislators, judges are motivated by political considerations in a broad and sometimes a narrow sense of that term. In that open area, most American judges are legal pragmatists. Legal pragmatism is forward-looking and policy-based. It focuses on the consequences of a decision in both the short and the long term, rather than on its antecedent logic. Legal pragmatism so understood is really just a form of ordinary practical reasoning, rather than some special kind of legal reasoning.

    Supreme Court justices are uniquely free from the constraints on ordinary judges and uniquely tempted to engage in legislative forms of adjudication. More than any other court, the Supreme Court is best understood as a political court.
