18 Notre Dame L. 317 (1942-1943)
America’s philosophy of law is a rich heritage sculpted by the American Revolution. The bold aspirations of the Declaration of Independence, which advances notions of inalienable, God-given rights find more mild-mannered forms in our Constitution. However, this prevailing concept is what makes our legal and political environment distinct from our English forebears.
