Byron Crowe, Moseneke’s Impact on Land Restitution

“In May 2016, after over fourteen years on the bench, Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke retired from his position on South Africa’s highest court…this review gives an overview of My Own Liberator while adding color to Moseneke’s work at the Court, particularly as it related to land restitution. Part II provides a summary of My Own Liberator, and Part III discusses the background of land restitution in South Africa and Moseneke’s impact on it. Part IV concludes by giving a brief assessment of Moseneke’s memoir and how it relates to his land restitution jurisprudence.”

René Reyes, May Britain Trump America When It Comes to Democracy?

“[F]rom its very beginnings as a nation, America has emphasized the contrasts between its approach to government and the example set by its British predecessor…So began America’s proud history of democratic exceptionalism—at least according to the traditional narrative.  But does the traditional narrative obscure more than it reveals?  Just how democratic is America relative to Britain as a matter of historical constitutional structure and contemporary political reality?  This Essay explores those questions through the lens of national elections in the United States and the United Kingdom in 2016 and 2017.”
