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.
