This unique festschrift - in honor of Prof. Dr. Jules Stuyck - tells the story of the coming of age of EU consumer law, a legal domain that hasn't ceased to expand in depth and scope during the last 20 years. The contributions offer ample food for thought about the challenges awaiting consumer law in the years to come. Without exception, the selected cases presented are landmark decisions. The book approached the cases from a novel and personal perspective, sometimes colored by the contributors' particular backgrounds, concerns, and interest. Very often, the cases have been used as a point of departure to highlight certain developments in EU and/or national consumer law.

Original Intent and the Framers Constitution

Genre: History

For more than two hundred years a debate has raged between those who believe that jurists should follow the original intentions of the Founding Fathers and those who argue that the Constitution is a living document subject to interpretation by each succeeding generation. The controversy has flared anew in our own time as a facet of the battle between conservatives and liberals. In Original Intent and the Framers' Constitution, the distinguished constitutional scholar Leonard Levy cuts through the Gordian Knot of claim and counterclaim with an argument that is clear, logical, and compelling. Rejecting the views of both left and right, he evaluates the doctrine of "original intent" by examining the sources of constitutional law and landmark cases. Finally, he finds no evidence for grounding the law in original intent. Judicial activism—the constant reinterpretation of the Constitution—he sees as inevitable.
