Product Description

 

In het kader van het vijftigjarig jubileum van de Tilburgse Rechtenfaculteit schetst Professor Jacobs in het boek `Rechtsgeleerdheid, rechtswetenschappen, Law school. 50 jaar rechtenfaculteit in Tilburg` een sprekend historisch beeld van de veranderingen van de juridische faculteit. In 1963 krijgt de Katholieke Hogeschool in Tilburg een juridische faculteit. Er komen een klassieke opleiding Nederlands recht en een opleiding fiscaal recht. De rechtenfaculteit krijgt in de jaren zestig, net als de gehele Hogeschool en andere onderwijsinstellingen, te maken met studenten en medewerkers die inspraak eisen en het onderwijsprogramma ter discussie stellen. In de loop van de jaren nemen de studentenaantallen toe, waaronder in belangrijke mate ook de aantallen avondstudenten. Dat vereist een bijzondere inspanning. Geleidelijk breidt men ook het aantal studierichtingen uit met een juridisch bestuurswetenschappelijke opleiding - later omgevormd tot bestuurskunde - en andere opleidingen, waardoor er meer diversiteit ontstaat. In de jaren negentig komt er een onderzoeksinstituut voor grondslagen en rechtsvergelijking, het Schoordijk Instituut, waarbinnen het facultaire onderzoek grotendeels wordt geconcentreerd. In de jaren 2000 richt de faculteit de blik steeds meer naar buiten: onderzoek en onderwijs worden sterker internationaal en inter- en multidisciplinair. In 2012 mondt deze ontwikkeling uit in het mede-initiatief tot de oprichting van een wereldwijde Law Schools Global League en in 2013 tot de start van een Engelstalig bachelorprogramma Global Law. Beschikbaar voor 15 Euro tot 31-12-2013.

When language meets the mind: Three questions
James Boyd White

ISBN (hardcover) : 9789058502636

 

In 2006 the lecture was held by James Boyd White,one of the founding fathers of the Law & Literature movement, presenting three crucial questions animating his research. At the centre of imaginative life and expression in law, literature and ordinary life, there is the moment when, as White puts it, `language meets the mind’. It is at this moment that three basic and inexhaustible questions arise. First: What is the language that this speaker – or I myself – is given by the culture to use on this occasion? This is an external, descriptive, and analytic question. Second: What relation does this speaker establish with his language? What does it do to him and what does he do with or to it? This is an internal, a normative, a personal and an artistic question. Third: What relation does this speaker establish with others in his speech – those spoken about, those spoken to? This is an ethical, even a political question. Reading texts by Simone Weil, Homer, Plato, Mark Twain, Emily Dickinson, and Abraham Lincoln, White pursues these three questions. His conclusion is that while they are phrased as `language questions’ they are not as technical as they seem but `the first questions of intellectual life, present constantly in every enterprise of thought’.
Amongst other things, the series includes publications within the framework of the Montesquieu seminars (legal theory), the Anton Philips Chair (company law), the Interpolis chair (pensions), the rotating professorship in international and comparative law, the Piet Gilhuis chair in environmental law, and seminars by other international guests of institute.

The Jurisprudence of Aharon Barak, Views from Europe
Maartje de Visser, Willem Witteveen (eds.)

ISBN (hardcover) : 9789058506832

 

At the Montesquieu Seminars, new developments in legal theory are explored and discussed. Fundamental problems experienced in the (practices of) law are reflected critically. A broad range of disciplines contribute at these attempts of sustained critical reflection. No particular school of legal theory is preferred over another.
Tilburg Law School has an open mind for new approaches to law and does not want to limit the debate to the agenda set by some school, movement or discipline. As a result, while the seminars are conceived around urgent actual problems, the focus is interdisciplinary.

Due to this the Montequieu Seminars are especially interesting for national and local politicians, students, policy makers, advisory bodies, entrepreneurs, business management, advocacy, judiciary and government.
This book contains a written version of the seventh Montesquieu seminar, which was held in September 2010 by Aharon Barak.
