The dominance of legislatures and statutory law has put an impossible burden on the courts. Guido Calabresi thinks it is time for this country seriously to consider returning to a traditional American judicial-legislative balance in which courts would enlarge the common law and would also decide when a rule of law has seen its day and should be revised. Table of Contents: 1. Choking on Statutes 2. The Flight to the Constitution and to Equal Protection Clauses 3. The Passive Virtues 4. Interpretation 5. The New Deal Response: Administrative Agencies 6. Legislative Responses 7. Structural Responses 8. A New Approach: Antecedents and Roots 9. The Doctrine: A Question of Legitimacy 10. The Doctrine: Limits and Guidelines 11. The Doctrine: Techniques and Feasibility 12. The Role of Courts in an Age of Statutes 13. The Dangers of the Doctrine 14. The Uses and Abuses of Subterfuge 15. The Choice for Candor Notes Works Cited Table of Cases Index Reviews of this book: This is a genuinely original and thoughtful book, one of the few in the jurisprudential genre that is both dearly written and devoid of cliché. It addresses current social and legal issues from an engagingly fresh, nonpolemical, and erudite perspective. --American Bar Association Journal Reviews of this book: Calabresi has brought his ample juristic talents to bear on a foundational problem of the legal and democratic process...in its quality, timeliness and provocativeness [this book] is likely to stand alongside the seminal works of Ronald Dworkin and Grant Gilmore. --Columbia Law Review

Turul Ansay is an outstanding figure in the landscape of comparative law. In a field that holds ever-growing promise for the future, he continues to manifest his tireless spirit in a wide arc of influential activity. The spectrum of his achievement encompasses many areas of substantive law as well as legal education. He is noted also for his direct contributions to the national legal systems of more than a few countries notably that of his native Turkey contributions characterized by the deep integrity that a truly comparative perspective brings. This impressive Festschrift in honour of Dr. Ansay's 75th birthday presents signal contributions by no less than thiry-six of his colleagues and fellow-comparatists, all of them well-known scholars in their fields. They offer insightful views on some of the many tasks of legal scholarship taken up by Dr. Ansay in the course of his long career, including such areas as the following: European competition law Conflicts of labor law conflicts among EC law and various national legal systems European real property law multiple nationality and diplomatic protection fundamental rights and private international law international consumer protection family relations in foreign law and in international family law Rights on immovable properties in Europe international agreements on jurisdiction the Anglo-internationalisation of law and language foreign direct investment protection legal education in Germany The wealth of material in this book represents a treasury of commentary and information that no student of comparative law will want to do without. Because of its array of outstanding authors in the field and its important sidelights on such areas as transplanted law, legal and social change, comparative law methodology, European legal integration and convergence, and cross-border import and export of ideas and institutions, this book is far more than a liber amicorum: it is a major new contribution to the field of comparative law, and will be of great value not only to academics but to lawyers involved in cross-border practice in areas such as family law, human rights law, and international business transactions.

Regions within European Union member states (such as Scotland in the UK and Catalonia in Spain) have their own legal systems: how will the process of 'Europeanization' affect them? This volume examines the phenomenon of 'regional' private law in the European Union, considering jurisdictions and laws below those of the member states and drawing comparisons with other such jurisdictions elsewhere in the world, such as Louisiana and Quebec. The whole is considered in relation to the development of European private law, and the use of codification in that process. This volume will be of interest to academic lawyers worldwide, advanced law students and European policy-makers.

The involvement of the EU in regulating private conduct and relationships between individuals is increasing. As a result, EU law affects the scope of private autonomy in ever wider contexts, sparking tensions with fundamental concepts of national private law systems. This volume offers a descriptive and normative account of the involvement of EU law in private law relationships. The recurring theme in the collected papers is the scope of policy objectives which are apt to legitimise the European Union's as yet unsystematic tendency to serve as a source of restrictions of private autonomy. The nature and purpose of the involvement of European Union law in private law relationships is investigated by the authors from both the substantive and the constitutional perspective. The papers look at such sectors regulating private law relationships as consumer law, labour law, competition law, equal treatment law and the law of remedies. While focusing on private law relationships the authors investigate more general concepts of EU law, such as the Internal Market freedoms and general principles of law, and the different modes of ensuring the effective application of EU secondary law.
