Ernst-Wolfgang Bockenforde (b. 1930) is one of Europe's foremost legal scholars and political thinkers. As a scholar of constitutional law and a judge on Germany's Federal Constitutional Court (December 1983 - May 1996), Bockenforde has been a major contributor to contemporary debates in legal and political theory, to the conceptual framework of the modern state and its presuppositions, and to contested political issues such as the rights of the enemies of the state, the constitutional status of the state of emergency, citizenship rights, and challenges of European integration. His writings have shaped not only academic but also wider public debates from the 1950s to the present, to an extent that few European scholars can match. As a federal constitutional judge and thus holder of one the most important and most trusted public offices, Bockenforde has influenced the way in which academics and citizens think about law and politics. During his tenure as a member of the Second Senate of the Federal Constitutional Court, several path-breaking decisions for the Federal Republic of Germany were handed down, including decisions pertaining to the deployment of missiles, the law on political parties, the regulation of abortion, and the process of European integration. In the first representative edition in English of Bockenforde's writings, this volume brings together his essays on constitutional and political theory. The volume is organized in four sections, focusing respectively on (I) the political theory of the state; (II) constitutional theory; (III) constitutional norms and fundamental rights; and (IV) the relation between state, citizenship, and political autonomy. Each of these four cornerstones of Bockenforde's legal and political thinking features introductions to the articles as well as a running editorial commentary to the work. A second volume will follow this collection, focusing on the relation between religion, law, and democracy.

  • Introduction : why is it enlightenment?
  • Agents and powers : litigants and writers in the courts
  • Derecho and law : legal enlightenment in philosophy and policy
  • Numbers and values : counting cases in the Spanish empire
  • Pleitos and lawsuits : conjugal conflicts in civil courts
  • Then and now : native status and custom
  • Being and becoming : freedom and slave lawsuits
  • Conclusion : why not enlightenment?
  • Appendix I. Archival methods
  • Appendix II. Analysis of civil litigation over time.
This is a history not of an Enlightenment but rather the Enlightenment-the rights-oriented, formalist, secularizing, freedom-inspired eighteenth-century movement that defined modern Western law. Its principal protagonists, rather than members of a cosmopolitan Republic of Letters, are non-literate, poor, and enslaved litigants who sued their superiors in the royal courts of Spain's American colonies. Despite growing evidence of the Hispanic world's contributions to Enlightenment science, the writing of history, and statecraft, it is conventionally believed to have taken an alternate route to modernity. This book grapples with the contradiction between this legacy and eighteenth-century Spanish Americans' active production of concepts fundamental to modern law. The book is intensely empirical even as it is sly situated within current theoretical debates about imperial geographies of history. The Enlightenment on Trial offers readers new insight into how legal documents were made, fresh interpretations of the intellectual transformations and legal reform policies of the period, and comparative analysis of the volume of civil suits from six regions in Mexico, Peru and Spain. Ordinary litigants in the colonies-far more often than peninsular Spaniards-sued superiors at an accelerating pace in the second half of the eighteenth century. Three types of cases increased even faster than a stunning general rise of civil suits in the colonies: those that slaves, native peasants and women initiated against masters, native leaders and husbands. As they entered court, these litigants advanced a new law-centered culture distinct from the casuistic, justice-oriented legal culture of the early modern period. And they did so at precisely the same time that a few bright minds of Europe enshrined them in print. The conclusion considers why, if this is so, the Spanish empire has remained marginal to the story of the advent of the modern West.

  • Practical necessity and the "logic" of civil society / David James
  • How modern is the Hegelian state? / Ludwig Siep.
Hegel's 'Elements of the Philosophy of Right', one of the classic texts of German Idealism, is a seminal work of legal, social and political philosophy that has generated very different interpretations since its publication in 1821. Written with the advantage of historical distance, the essays in this volume adopt a fresh perspective that makes readers aware of the breadth and depth of this classic work. The themes of the essays reflect the continuing relevance of the text, and include Hegel's method, the concept of property, Hegel's view of morality, the concept of Sittlichkeit, the modern family, the nature and tensions of civil society, and the question of the modernity of the Hegelian state. The volume will be of interest to all scholars and students of German Idealism and the history of political thought.

"Despite the growing number of Asian American and Latino/a law students, many panethnic students still feel as if they do not belong in this elite microcosm, which reflects the racial inequalities in mainstream American society. While in law school, these students--often from immigrant families, and often the first to go to college--have to fight against racialized and gendered stereotypes. In Incidental Racialization, Diana Pan rigorously explores how systemic inequalities are produced and sustained in law schools. Through interviews with more than 100 law students and participant observations at two law schools, Pan examines how racialization happens alongside professional socialization. She investigates how panethnic students negotiate their identities, race, and gender in an institutional context. She also considers how their lived experiences factor into their student organization association choices and career paths. Incidental Racialization sheds light on how race operates in a law school setting for both students of color and in the minds of white students. It also provides broader insights regarding racial inequalities in society in general"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Terms, concepts and other conundrums
  • Investigating legal concepts, language and the law
  • (How) do courts do things with words?
  • Understanding EU legal concepts
  • Multilingualism and EU legal concepts
  • EU legal translation and the challenges for the dictionary
  • Multilingual legal dictionaries
  • Methodology for the making of a termontological dictionary
  • Concluding remarks and directions for future research.
This book focuses on legal concepts from the dual perspective of law and terminology. While legal concepts frame legal knowledge and take center stage in law, the discipline of terminology has traditionally been about concept description. Exploring topics common to both disciplines such as meaning, conceptualization and specialized knowledge transfer, the book gives a state-of-the-art account of legal interpretation, legal translation and legal lexicography with special emphasis on EU law. The special give-and-take of law and terminology is illuminated by real-life legal cases which demystify the ways courts do things with concepts. This original approach to the semantics of legal concepts is then incorporated into the making of a legal dictionary, thus filling a gap in the theory and practice of legal lexicography. With its rich repertoire of examples of legal terms in different languages, the book provides a blend of theory and practice, making it a valuable resource not only for scholars of law, language and lexicography but also for legal translators and students.

"Obligations: Law and Language is the first work of its kind to examine in depth the fundamental language used by courts, legislators, and academic commentators when describing the nature of obligations law. A comparative perspective is taken, examining the law of England, Scotland, the United States, Canada, and Australia, and an in-depth analysis is provided of the major legal commentaries, statutes, and case law from each jurisdiction. In exploring such fundamental words as obligation, liability, debt, conditional, unilateral, mutual, and gratuitous, the author examines the often confusing and contradictory ways in which basic structural language has been used, and brings clarity to a core area of legal theory and practice"-- Provided by publisher.

  • A great disorder.
"Rage for Order surveys the sprawling, often frenetic attempt to redesign law in the British Empire. Across the world in the early nineteenth century, colonial officials, indigenous subjects, settlers, convicts, sailors, soldiers, and slaves participated in contests that shaped a new British imperial constitution. Contemporaries imagined that law would provide a blueprint for the empire and for global order. Within turbulent British colonies, legal reform targeted petty despots and augmented the power of the crown to intervene in the administration of justice. At the edges of empire, British campaigns to police slave trading and piracy linked imperial interests to emerging world regions and conjured new sovereignties. Rage for Order breaks new ground in the history of international law by looking beyond the treatises of jurists and instead tracing vernacular constitutional politics across the globe--in new crown colonies such as Ceylon and Trinidad, expanding settler colonies such as New South Wales and Upper Canada, established plantation colonies in the West Indies and Indian Ocean, and regions not under direct British control, from the South Atlantic to the eastern Mediterranean to the Pacific islands. By uncovering the lost history of a global empire of law, Benton and Ford reveal the way imperial structures continue to influence our understandings of world order and international law."-- Provided by publisher.

"L'histoire de la justice a été profondément renouvelée au cours des dernières décennies, parallèlement à la place nouvelle acquise par les juges dans la société comme dans leurs rapports avec le pouvoir politique. Ce livre en propose une synthèse en mettant l'accent sur l'évolution des institutions juridictionnelles, de la magistrature et de la façon dont celle-ci régule les conflits civils et réprime les infractions pénales. Il met en lumière la succession de trois modèles de justice. La révolution de 1789 institue une justice libérale et démocratique fondée sur la souveraineté nationale, les citoyens étant étroitement associés à son exercice. Ce modèle libéral fait place, à partir du Consulat, à celui d'une justice étatisée, contrôlée par le pouvoir politique, exécutif dans les périodes autoritaires, parlementaire sous les régimes républicains. Le mouvement d'émancipation des juges, amorcé dans les années 1970, conduit à s'interroger depuis sur l'existence d'un nouveau modèle : au sein d'un État de droit, la justice aurait acquis sinon une place dominante, du moins plus d'indépendance."--Page 4 of cover.
