A Juridical Critique of the Ethics of Chancery Law

Author: Michael Levenstein

ISBN: 1628940530

Category: Law

Page: 160

Equity is a world unto itself. Originally conceived and administered by the ancient Court of Chancery in England, this arcane body of rules and principles has matured into a distinct branch of modern jurisprudence, influencing almost every field of private law -- from contract and tort to company and real property. Specifically, equity seeks to fashion practical justice by alleviating the inflexibility of the common law when liable to produce unfair outcomes in addition to providing a more robust set of remedies, such as injunctions or specific performance, to aggrieved claimants. Chancery law is governed by a set of principles referred to as 'Maxims of Equity,' nearly twenty moral guidelines aimed at providing jurists a wide scope in overriding the rigors of private agreements and facilitating complex financial and proprietary transactions such as the creation and management of trusts of land. Recognizing these maxims as key insights--not only into our own legal order but into the moral values that society at large prioritizes--requires both philosophical dissection and the practical assessment of their efficacy. Such scrutiny ultimately permits a keen understanding of the nexus between ethics and law, their inevitable divergences and which areas of the latter are most in need of reform.
