Wright at Harvard: The Shaping of a Legal Scholar In a Toronto Telegram article of 7 June 1926 entitled 'Large Class Finishes Osgoode Hall Course,' Caesar Wright was reported as heading the list of graduates with a standing of 94.5 per cent, 'one of the highest in the history of the law school.'

Abstract

The Jurisprudence under the wartime regime in Japan: 1931–1952. In 2016, a book was published in Tokyo with the title “Senji-taisei to Hōgakusha: 1931–1952” (The Wartime Regime and Legal Scholars: 1931–1952) as the first collective work about sixteen diverse legal scholars under the economic and political system of total war in Japan. This invited article summarizes the main points of the book from the viewpoint of one of its editors and explains why it was written now, and why not until now.
