This fourth edition of Precedent in English Law presents a basic guide to the current doctrine of precedent in England, set in the wider context of the jurisprudential problems which any treatment of this topic involves. Such problems include the nature of _ratio_ _decidendi_ of a precedent and of its binding force, the significance of precedents alongside other sources of law, their role in legal reasoning, and the account which must be taken of them by any general theory of law. Considerable re-writing has been undertaken to update case-law and take account of the possible implications for the doctrine of precedent of the impact of European Community law, making it an indispensable work of reference for readers interested in the past history, present state, and future developments of English rules of precedent.

Situé au confluent de plusieurs logiques d’intégration, le droit privé européen déplace les frontières juridiques, que ces frontières soient spatiales ou matérielles. Son développement s’accompagne en outre d’une évolution des méthodes appliquées au droit. Le présent ouvrage analyse ces transformations. Le degré d’européanisation du droit privé est variable selon le secteur envisagé. Discuter des frontières du droit privé européen conduit dès lors à discuter des objectifs, des obstacles et des limites de cette européanisation, tout en soulignant la relativité même de la frontière entre droit public et droit privé. ---- European private law results from the continuous interaction between different integration processes. Its expanding scope redraws the shape of many legal boundaries, be they substantive or territorial, and along with these evolutions come mutations in legal regulation. This book considers these phenomena by successively adopting a general/methodological and a specific/disciplinary approach. The degree of Europeanisation varies depending on the legal field involved. To discuss the boundaries of European Private Law leads therefore to discuss the objectives, obstacles and limits to Europeanisation. It also underscores the relativity of the (continental) boundary between public and private law.

Our courts, the third branch of the government, are central in the administration of our democracy. But their operations are shrouded in a mythology with its ritual incantations of "rule of law," "equal justice" and "presumption of innocence"--one that this book pierces. We have 30,000 judges. Many are hard-working and distinguished jurists; most are simply lawyers who knew a politician. It does not help that the job pays poorly. We have no judicial profession: we do not train judges before or after they mount the bench. There is no national court system. Fifty sovereign states, a federal government, counties and municipalities and state and federal agencies all have their own courts, their own rules and not infrequently their own laws and are deluged with cases filed by a million lawyers. Today, less than 3% of criminal charges and 4% of civil disputes are resolved by court trials. The noted author argues that a specialized world demands specialized courts and judges expert in the subjects they must consider. Following the leadership of Chief Judge Judith Kaye of New York's highest court, the Conference of Chief Justices from all fifty states has endorsed her use of "problem-solving courts" to take the judiciary into the twenty-first century. The Judges is Martin Mayer's most important book from many successful titles dating from the 1950s. It opens up a debate that will occupy scholars, justices, many of the one million lawyers in our country, and law school professors and students for years to come.
