Cultural Divide Among Settlers in Colonial America - During the 17th Century, there was a major cultural divide between the rich white settlers in colonial America and the poor white settlers.

There was also a major divide between settlers living in the rural “backcountry” and the city dwellers. The city dwellers were the ones who were involved in the colonial assemblies, and were therefore making decisions which affected the unrepresented backcountry men....   [tags: American History] 745 words

Challenges of Formal and Informal Law - For many years there has been the debate on what constitutes informality and formality in administrative law. Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government, which include rulemaking, adjudication, or the enforcement of a specific regulatory agenda (Harrington, 2009). Rulemaking and adjudication apply for both formal and informal hearings. Whenever the authorizing statute calls for a hearing on the record this would be a formal hearing, and informal hearings are completed with no record and no adherence to evidentiary rules, and final decisions are made by the agency (Harrington, 2009)....   [tags: informative essay, law]

The Case of the Black Donnellys - The case of the so-called “Black Donnellys” is indicative of social and community relations during the nineteenth century in Upper Canada. Characterized by frontier agriculture, a growing but weak authority structure, and an influx of emigration, mob justice complemented the legal system nefariously. The arson of the Donnelly's home, as well as James Senior's imprisonment demonstrate the role of these two powers in society. I will argue that Upper Canada during the mid to late nineteenth century reacted to increased crime with both community power, in the form of vigilante justice, and legitimate authority, in the form of the penitentiary system; this uptick in crime coincided with settlement of the land by British emigrants....   [tags: Sociology ]
