Law and Judicial Duty by Hamburger
Philip Hamburger’s Law and Judicial Duty traces the early history of what is today called “judicial review.” Working from previously unexplored evidence, Hamburger questions the very concept of judicial review. Although decisions holding statutes unconstitutional are these days considered instances of a distinct judicial power of review, Hamburger shows that they were once understood merely as instances of a broader judicial duty. The book’s focus on judicial duty overturns the familiar debate about judicial power. The book is therefore essential reading for anyone concerned about the proper role of the judiciary. Hamburger lays the foundation for his argument by explaining the common law ideals of law and judicial duty. He shows that the law of the land was understood to rest on the authority of the lawmaker and that what could not be discerned within the law of the land was not considered legally binding. He then shows that judges had a duty to decide in accord with the law of the land. These two ideals—law and judicial duty—together established and limited what judges could do. By reviving an understanding of these common law ideals, Law and Judicial Duty calls into question the modern assumption that judicial review is a power within the judges’ control. Indeed, the book shows that what is currently considered a distinct power of review was once understood as a matter of duty—the duty of judges to decide in accord with the law of the land. The book thereby challenges the very notion of judicial review. It shows that judges had authority to hold government acts unconstitutional, but that they enjoyed this power only to the extent it was required by their duty. In laying out the common law ideals, and in explaining judicial review as an aspect of judicial duty, Law and Judicial Duty reveals a very different paradigm of law and of judging than prevails today. The book, moreover, sheds new light on a host of misunderstood problems, including intent, manifest contradiction, the status of foreign and international law, the cases and controversies requirement, and the authority of judicial precedent.
Textbook on Pleadings, Drafting and Conveyancing By Kafaltiya
The purpose of this "Practical Exercise Book" is to give a general idea to LL.B students about the art of Pleading and Conveyancing. It covers their course content on the subject. The object of pleading is to give a fair notice of the case of one party which has to be met by the other so that the contesting parties may direct their evidence to the issues disclosed by the pleadings. A practical lawyer needs the latest techniques of pleadings of suits, petitions, applications, writs etc. Similarly, drafting of the transfer of property rights has a target to avoid future disputes between the parties to the transaction. The function of pleading is not simply for the benefit of the parties but also for the assistance of the Court as a pleading defines the area of conflict within which a party to an action is bound to confine its claim or defence. Drafting a pleading for suits or applications is laying a foundation upon which the whole structure of claim or written statement of the defendant is built, or the defence is made. Drafting of pleadings is therefore an important work of a busy lawyer. A plaint or a written Statement is called pleadings. But it covers several interlocutory applications too. Conveyance means drafting of a transaction relating to some interest, right, estate in a property viz., possession, enjoyment of disposition etc. Drafting of a conveyance; i.e., drafting a transaction relating to creation, extinguishments, and declaration, or conferment of some right or obligation and limitation in a property right between two or more living persons including a "Will" requires certain formalities to make it a legal instrument. "Instrument" includes every document by which any right or liability is, or purports to be, created, transferred, limited, extended, extinguished or recorded. A fine legal instrument, therefore, is supposed to avoid future litigation and to solve legal problems that may arise in future under it. A lawyer should have a vision towards this

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.

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.

Special attention is given to aspects of financing international trade and securing payment. The text also highlights the importance of choosing the applicable law and dispute resolution mechanism.
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.

Over the 18 years it has been in print and it has established itself in Australia and overseas as a comprehensive, entertaining and enormously useful text. It includes international references, contains practical advice, and can be read and enjoyed by anyone who is interested in plain language in the law. The 4th edition has been completely revised and updated. All cases, legislation and text references have been updated to 2009 Recent international developments in plain language are included Chapter 12, on the principles of legal interpretation, has been completely rewritten to cover the latest case law Chapter 13, the plain language vocabulary, has been extended Chapter 14, on email and the internet, has been updated, and includes the latest on defamation law Chapter 15 and 16, which cover document design for both print and the computer screen, have both been revised to include the latest research findings on typography, and the way we read and comprehend on-line material The global financial crisis has shown how complex legal and financial documents can conceal dangers for readers who dona (TM)t understand the legal risks of modern financial products.
