Join SAC attorney Michelle Wedderburn as she moderates a panel discussing common law in legal cases.
About the event
Cal. Civil Code § 22.2 provides: “The common law of England, so far as it is not repugnant to or inconsistent with the Constitution of the United States, or the Constitution or laws of this State, is the rule of decision in all the courts of this State.” The statute was originally enacted in 1849 and remains on our books.
The speakers will address some examples of how particularly in cases of first impression it can continue to play a decisive role in the evolution of our law.
This short lunch program features two speakers and a moderator who grew up in England and will explain why both litigators and appellate lawyers should be aware of this little used tool.
This program is FREE for BHBA Members and $35 for Non Members.
