School Days: The Supreme Court of North Carolina and the Moral Science of Law, 1819-1931

Record #:
Davis illustrates how North Carolina’s Supreme Court from the antebellum period to the Great Depression was heavily influenced by two factors. One is English law, the other three of the state’s law schools. The extent of this influence is examined in how individuals like William Blackstone contributed to the state legislative branch's development. It is also examined in how these law schools’ curricula impacted law reform.
