CJUS 2100  Week 3  Day one: 9.13.16  We just had an in­class quiz. No other topics were covered today.     Day two: 9.15.16  Topics: ​Inquisitorial/Accusatorial systems, Henry VIII, James I.    Inquisitorial: ​this is the Civil Law’s form of law. Basically it just denotes the fact that judges act  as the main player and question the defendant, witnesses, etc. Civil Law is also precisely  recorded and exactly to the letter.     Accusatorial (Adversarial): ​is the legal system of the Common Law. In this system, judges and  juries are more passive as lawyers battle each other in court. This is basically modern day trial  by battle. In the Common Law system, law is more flexible and open to adaptions when  necessary.     Henry VIII: ​He shook up the system hardcore. He created his own Church of England. He also  codified the Common Law as a point of reference but not as a black­letter rule book.     James I: ​He was also James VI of Scotland. He united Scotland and England (hence the United  Kingdom). Also, when Guy Fawkes tried to blow him up and was subsequently hung and  quartered,  The English tradition Bonfire Day was created. He wanted the town folks to make  bonfires on Nov. 5 and light up England to represent how he lit up their lives. As a royal ef­you  the people of England also lit fireworks to remind the king how they were this close to getting  him. He also wrote a book about witchcraft which had the effect of bringing witch hunts to  England and America.     Extra Tidbits: ​a Lacuna is literally Latin for “hole” and is used to describe a situation in which  defendants have been coerced into taking a plea deal. 1316 was when circuit judges were  instituted.
