Early Law / The Rights Of A Patron
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing the relationship between the Digest that was part of the Corpus Iuris Civilis ordered recorded by Emperor Justinian of the early Byzantine Empire, c. 534. Only two Articles of the body of civil law of the Empire are examined here (Articles XIV and XV), but their relationship to the evolution of the lord and serf relationship of medieval Europe is clear. Remarkably, they even retain applicability to life today. Ariticles XIV and XV address the rights of the patron and the obedience to parents and patrons required of children who were under the age of majority, which at that time was 25.

Evolution Of America's Legal System Since The Time Of The Federalist Papers
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Upon examining the legal system's evolution since the Federalist Papers, the student will want to begin with New Nationalism from the Roosevelt Administration, progressively moving forward to contemporary concerns about judicial activism and judicial restrain. The student will likely discover that the legal system is an entity comprised of individual human beings who attest to provide protection for the masses. This may be true in theory but the truth of the matter is that the courts have gained far too much influence over people's lives in their ongoing quest for civil harmony.

Evolution Of The Insanity Plea
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Are all delinquents created equal? Indeed, there are myriad levels of criminal activity that prove to land offenders in jail, with a percentage of those criminals committing their crimes under the duress of mental illness. These prisoners, while deserving of severe punishment, often do not have full control of their faculties. These orphans of society are often compelled by an emotional or mental imbalance that provokes them to act savagely toward their fellow human beings. One might assert the fact that what these disturbed individuals need is assisted treatment, not prison. Analyzing the evolution of the insanity plea leads one to believe that while the original objective was to address those with mental instability, it has grown out of this definition to support those whose situation does not necessarily apply.

Hobbes +Social Contract +Locke.
[ send me this paper ]
(7pp) The fundamental basis for government and law in this system is the concept of the social contract, according to which human beings begin as individuals in a state of nature, and create a society by establishing a contract whereby they agree to live together in harmony for their mutual benefit, after which they are said to live in a state of society. This contract involves the retaining of certain natural rights, an acceptance of restrictions of certain liberties, the assumption of certain duties, and the pooling of certain powers to be exercised collectively. So the use of a social contract is a give and take negotiation -usually. Bibliography lists 4 sources. BBsoccon.doc
