Harry Pratter’S Wisdom, Jonathan Pratter 2016 Tarlton Law Library, University of Texas at Austin

Harry Pratter’S Wisdom, Jonathan Pratter

Indiana Law Journal

From 1950 to 1994 Harry Pratter taught law at Indiana University- Bloomington. One of his favorite sayings (he had many of these) was Maitland’s “[T]aught law is tough law,” a phrase that a forty-four year teaching career entitles you to utter with some frequency. In response to Sartre’s notorious challenge, “Do you have anything to say?” Pratter could certainly answer yes. He took Sartre literally. Pratter preferred to speak—that is to teach, and not to write. The source of Pratter’s strong preference for speech over writing must remain a mystery. The consequence is that a ...

On Legal Scholarship: Questions For Judge Harry T. Edwards, Ronald K.L. Collins 2016 University of Washington School of Law

On Legal Scholarship: Questions For Judge Harry T. Edwards, Ronald K.L. Collins

Articles

The life of Judge Harry T. Edwards is one very much steeped in writing. His passion dates back at least to his years at Uniondale High School when he was the editor of the school newspaper. In the legal realm, that passion traces back to 1964 and his days on the Michigan Law Review when he published two student Notes. In the half-century since then, Judge Edwards has authored six books and more than 90 scholarly articles or essays. As a lawyer, educator, administrator, arbitrator, and now jurist, Harry Edwards has put his ideas into print concerning an array of ...

To Compare Or Not To Compare? Reading Justice Breyer, Russell A. Miller 2016 Washington and Lee University School of Law

To Compare Or Not To Compare? Reading Justice Breyer, Russell A. Miller

Scholarly Articles

Justice Breyer's new book The Court and the World presents a number of productive challenges. First, it provides an opportunity to reflect generally on extra-judicial scholarly activities. Second, it is a major and important - but also troubling - contribution to debates about comparative law broadly, and the opening of domestic constitutional regimes to external law and legal phenomena more specifically. I begin by suggesting a critique of the first of these points. These are merely some thoughts on the implications of extra-judicial scholarship. The greater portion of this essay, however, is devoted to a reading of Justice Breyer's book ...

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., And The American Civil War, Catharine P. Wells 2015 Boston College Law School

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., And The American Civil War, Catharine P. Wells

Catharine P. Wells

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. spent three terrible years fighting in the Civil War. By any standard his experience was horrific. He was wounded three times, suffered a nearly fatal bout of dysentery, and endured the deaths of many of his closest friends. Without doubt, it was the most affecting period of his life. Unfortunately, however, the accounts of Holmes’ wartime experience have been notably superficial. Part of the problem has been the fact that, until recently, the chief source of information about these years was Holmes’ own diary and letters. The difficulty with these as a source has been twofold ...
