Description : This book contains the papers prepared for a conference held at the Wisconsin Law School in 2011 to honour the work of Stewart Macaulay, one of the most famous contracts scholars of his generation. Macaulay has been writing about contracts and contract law for over 50 years; the 1960s were particularly productive years for him, when he introduced many novel ideas into the scholarly world. Macaulay's foundational work for what is now called relational contract theory was published during this period. Macaulay is also known for his use of empirical research and interdisciplinary theories to illuminate our knowledge of contracting practices. The papers in this volume reflect, in diverse ways, on the subsequent influence and the contemporary relevance of Macaulay's work. All the contributors are important contracts scholars in their own right: David Campbell and John Wightman from the UK, Brian Bix, Jay Feinman, Robert Gordon, Claire Hill, Charles Knapp, Ethan Leib, Deborah Post, Edward Rubin, Carol Sanger, Robert Scott, Gordon Smith, Josh Whitford (with Li-Wen Lin) and William Woodward from the USA. The volume also reproduces Macaulay's most cited paper, 'Non-Contractual Relations in Business', and excerpts from two other important papers of his, 'Private Legislation and the Duty to Read-Business Run by IBM Machine, the Law of Contracts and Credit Cards', and 'The Real and The Paper Deal: Empirical Pictures of Relationships, Complexity and the Urge for Transparent Simple Rules'.

Description : American family law makes two key assumptions: first, that the civil state possesses sole authority over marriage and divorce; and second, that the civil law may contain only one regulatory regime for such matters. These assumptions run counter to the multicultural and religiously plural nature of our society. This book elaborates how those assumptions are descriptively incorrect, and it begins an important conversation about whether more pluralism in family law is normatively desirable. For example, may couples rely upon religious tribunals (Jewish, Muslim, or otherwise) to decide family law disputes? May couples opt into stricter divorce rules, either through premarital contracts or 'covenant marriages'? How should the state respond? Intentionally interdisciplinary and international in scope, this volume contains contributions from fourteen leading scholars. The authors address the provocative question of whether the state must consider sharing its jurisdictional authority with other groups in family law.

Description : Konstelasi dan refleksi adalah dua kata kunci dalam memahami setiap medan telaah. Konstelasi berfungsi mendudukkan persoalan sehingga keluasan latarnya menjadi terpaparkan. Sementara itu, refleksi memuat kontemplasi bahkan sampai pada nilai-nilai tertentu, untuk kemudian diterjemahkan ke dalam bentuk-bentuk pemikiran yang lebih bernas dan mumpuni guna menjawab problema-problema kontekstual. Metode penelitian hukum adalah salah satu dari banyak medan telaah yang perlu dikonstelasi dan direfleksikan, mengingat dinamika yang melanda disiplin hukum pasca-abad ke-19. Arus utama (mainstream) positivisme hukum selama ini telah menempatkan penelitian hukum dalam posisi yang serba-kikuk dan monolitik tatkala harus berhadapan dengan dinamika tersebut. Sementara itu, tuntutan konstektualitas penelitian hukum justru makin menggebu dan terus menggugat kapabilitas ilmu hukum (dalam arti luas) untuk menjawab kebutuhan-kebutuhan masyarakat, khususnya dalam konteks keindonesiaan. Dua belas bab dari buku ini tidak saja menawarkan panorama hasil pemetaan ragam pemikiran hukum dengan segala konsekuensi metodologisnya, melainkan juga merefleksikan hasil konstelasi itu dalam tawaran pendekatan yang relatif baru, yaitu penelitian sosiolegal. Kesalahpahaman atas penelitian sosiolegal, yang lazim menghinggapi para penstudi hukum "konvensional", coba untuk diluruskan dalam paruh kedua buku ini. Tulisan-tulisan dalam bagian ini mampu mendeskripsikan dengan sangat kaya tentang sepak terjang metode penelitian sosiolegal dalam melahirkan varian-varian pendekatan baru, yang secara metodologis merupakan buah kolaborasi antara metode penelitian hukum konvensional dan metode penelitian hukum berperspektif kemasyarakatan.
