Full Description
"Law Without a Lawmaker" is devoted to exploring the existence and validity of law not created by the lawmakers of a particular jurisdiction. Some of the questions to be addressed are: What was the nature of the general common law under the regime of Swift v. Tyson? How did Erie end this regime and what, if anything, was Erie's constitutional source? Do the principles used to decide choice-of-law cases transcend the law of any jurisdiction, and, if so, are they unconstitutional? Does customary international law transcend the law of any jurisdiction, and, if so, is it unconstitutional? Where else can law not created by the lawmakers of a particular jurisdiction be found? Is the appeal to such law an inescapable fact of legal reasoning?
