Re:
Restitution in the US

 

I post this on behalf of Chaim Saiman.
LDS

  

Dear RDG Readers:

Lionel Smith recently posted a link to my draft article Restitution in America.

The article is a small part of a larger project comparing the legal method and theory in the US and Commonwealth, with emphasis on restitution. In particular I am interested in the relative patience and appreciation for close doctrinal reasoning - the kind found throughout the English restitution canon, which is almost nonexistent in comparable US materials. Though the present draft focuses on scholars, the next one will turn to the courts. Future projects will address the relative vitality of doctrinal approaches to private law in the Commonwealth and the decline of this mode of reasoning in US law.

I am a US born and educated lawyer in my first year of law teaching. My only exposure to commonwealth law is from books. As such, I would be very interested in feedback and comments from the inhabitants of the system, either on this list or privately at saiman@law.villanova.edu.

  

Thank you,
Chaim Saiman
