"A Clear Presentation of the Cardinal Principles of the Law."

Studies in Juridical Law.

By HORACE E. SMITH, LL. D.
For a Period of Ton Years Dean and a Daily Locturor of the

Albany Law School.

It is the design of the author to present his readers with a treatise which, so far as practicable under existing conditions of our juridical literature and requirements for admission to the bar, shall be acceptable and useful, both to the legal profession and to such general readers as may wish to acquire a knowledge of the cardinal principles of government and law as essential to a liberal education, and a valuable aid to the best qualifications for citizenship under a republican government.

What the general reader needs is a clear presentation of the cardinal principles of the law, relieved of all unnecessary and confusing matter. For the padded class of subject-books he has neither time nor relish; and the better class is too limited in number for his purpose.

The writer is by no means unmindful of the difficulties that would be encountered in an attempt fully to realize the ideal: and an attempt to make an immediate radical change would not be wise, even were it practicable. But he thinks that some advance steps may be taken in the right direction. If the overpadded work could be banished from the field, and some modification of the better class of subject works be effected, the task would be comparatively easy. But a wide departure from the beaten path should not be attempted at once. Much more might be said of existing conditions and needs, but brief attention must be given to the other class of readers, practitioners and students of law.

In the studies which the preface introduces to the public may be found a practical embodiment to a limited extent of the writer's views of what is needed. Subjects or branches of the great body of our law are selected for treatment and are discussed in the order following: 1. The term Juridical Law is defined.

2. The main features of these subjects are presented, omitting all unnecessary and confusing matter. Most of the subjects thus treated are those which students often omit or pass lightly over in their preparation for their important professional duties; other subjects are selected in view of their great importance and wide application in the social and business world. No lawyer can rightfully claim a respectable standing in the profession while ignorant of the cardinal principles of these neglected subjects. 3. Several topical discussions which are deemed of sufficient ir.terest and importance to justify special treatment are added. These subjects, and especially the first named, cannot be too thoroughly ventilated.

To the candid consideration of the readers for whom it is designed, this book is submitted, with the hope that it may prove acceptable and useful.
