However, a prior source of fiduciary standards lies in the common law doctrine of account.
Legal accounting regulation began in the feudal age with Exchequer control of fees and services, rents and taxes. Feudal accounting was codified in the twelfth century to control the behavior of lords who stood as guardians for underage heirs, with particularly extensive duties being applied to guardians of wards in socage or agricultural tenure. The chapter then shows how the common law courts extended accounting and waste remedies to third parties through augmentation of disseisin actions to permit tracing and following procedures for entrusted assets.
The prohibition of unauthorized profit-taking by fiduciaries or others in positions of influence or good faith and the use of an array of personal and proprietary remedies thus precedes the rise of the Court of Chancery by some three centuries. It is then shown how Chancery came to dominate fiduciary accounting procedures in modern times, building on an expansion of jurisdiction in the eighteenth century as the Chancellors struggled to repress managerial fraud in the private and public spheres. Today, following fusion of law and equity, we are seeing the assimilation of equitable remedies for breach of fiduciary duty with negligent liability for tortious harm, and the folding of the primary fiduciary duties into contract.
Fiduciary accountability, born long ago within the early common law, is now being undermined by the blanket application of much simpler common law concepts. ISBN: , I argue that the legislation was not simply an ill-conceived patchwork attempt to correct problems in the common law doctrines of prescription that ended up making a confused area of law worse, but was rather part of a wider reformist plan that largely succeeded.
One has to see the purpose of the Act through the eyes of the protagonists at the time, and not apply modern preconceptions to the work of jurists and politicians legislating nearly two hundred years ago. The prize they sought was not just to reshape the immemorial right and modern grant models of acquisitive prescription, but to make a modern actio negatoria, a system of negative prescription allowing destruction of existing servitudes through non-use or desuetude, in order to clear a path to ready exemption of estates from tithe payments to the Anglican clergy often absentees or to lay impropriators or lessees who farmed the tithes as a species of rent.
The existence of tithes as a rateable impost on agriculture, inconveniently and oppressively collected in kind, was one of the most controversial issues in politics at the time of the Great Reform Bill, and it was this controversy that drove the parliamentary debate over prescription.
ISBN: But this distinction of the liability of co-trustees as contrasted with partners or mutual agents can blur in practice. This paper explores the historical jurisprudence, and concludes that this area of co-trustee liability has now largely been dissolved into the general duty of care decreed by legislation.
It argues that an important dimension of doctrine is communication; and jurists become fascinated by the history of doctrine when social and political conditions necessitate an expansion or transfer of the legal system, with concomitant transfers of doctrinal thought. The chapter then traces the development of doctrinal history from Gaius to the common law tradition. Magna Carta gave the first legislative restatement of the nascent legal controls of stewardship by guardians and bailiffs, which led in turn to the evolution of modern doctrines for the control of accountable parties such as agents, bailees, executors, guardians, trustees, and directors.
By reviewing the operation of Magna Carta in this area we may better be able to understand why accountability has mattered across our legal history, and thereby better grasp the problems and uncertainties faced by our law today. At the time of Magna Carta the line between public and private accountability was difficult or impossible to draw within a feudal system merging jurisdictions with estates.
However, continuity across the field or public and private accountability may be found in the idea of due process — that decision-makers wielding power based on jurisdiction, status, or estate should do so in a manner measurable and controllable by law.

In this chapter we examine the legal control of credit rating agencies, using this as a test case to demonstrate how financial intermediation poses a set of difficult problems for the common law tradition to solve. We discuss the origins and functions of rating agencies as information intermediaries, and show how the rating industry slid into pathology in the mids.
We then outline recent developments in case law and statute grappling with rating agency liability, and show that it remains unclear whether increased or perhaps decreased liability would best serve the interests of a healthy financial sector. This article explores the genesis, the arguments, and the influence of this seminal work of historical and comparative jurisprudence. The turmoil in judicial theories of contract interpretation today is in large part a struggle post-fusion to re-establish filters on the flow of admissible fact regarding intentionality.
Courts have mistakenly focused on ascribing meaning to 'objective' and subjective' contractual intent when the real focus should be on deciding approved tests for admissible evidence of intent and the force of presumptions derived from admitted evidence. The troubled adjacent areas of rectification and implied terms have also suffered from the courts tending to ask the wrong substantive questions rather than the right adjectival ones. After examining the turn to voluntarism and away from a jurisdiction of conscience in recent law and legal theory, it moves attention to intellectual history, and examines the work of Adam Smith in ethics, economics and jurisprudence, where a theory of conscience based on sympathy is used to explain self-interest and to provide the ground of an original ethical system.
He argued that novel Crown liability regimes invented in Queensland and New South Wales in the middle of the 19th century offered a brave, if incomplete, set of solutions bridging the gap between government as sovereign and government as an actor in the normal life of the community. In this chapter I suggest that the solutions were left incomplete because liability questions were entwined with unresolved questions about the personality and capacities of the Crown as a corporate entity. Those questions were hard to resolve because legal personification is a difficult and contested area of jurisprudence, resting on distant precedents in Roman, canon and medieval common law that were bent to serve purposes unmoored from their origins.
These claims are each entirely valid, but consent is not a universal or complete explanations of the genesis of fiduciary duties, their content, and the proper remedies for breach. This essay makes a tentative start in applying the techniques of ascription and defeasibility to fiduciary law, arguing that consent plays a role in both creation and limitation of fiduciary obligations, but that consent interacts with an array of further mandatory and default terms to control entry into, variation and exemption, and exit from fiduciary relationships.

It begins with the notorious Lex Citandi, the "Law of Citations", also known as the "lex de responsis prudentium", found in the Theodosian Code 1. The main part of the paper then looks closely at majoritarian principles in halakhah or Jewish law as preserved in the classical Mishnaic and Talmudic texts. The contrast between the Roman and Jewish systems raises the question whether legal decision-making, involving the sifting and weighing of authorities, is itself a morally important act, or merely a machinery administered by technical experts, of limited spiritual virtue.
The ancient jurisprudence suggests a regard for the moral content of the adjudicative process itself. It argues that a restoration of classical fiduciary duties of loyalty and care to clients can help improve the health of the financial system and mitigate the next crises. The law needs to provide a satisfactory response to such behaviour, addressing the problems of uncertainty, asymmetric information and expertise, and conflicts of interest. These necessary additional duties would create something very similar to the fiduciary law we already have, but which we no longer use.
This chapter describes the attenuation of modern fiduciary law over the past forty years, and suggests how the power of this body of law may freshly be deployed in the future. This essay in honour of Lord Rodger looks at the Disruption anew through the lens of private law. It examines problems arising where a court is vested with jurisdiction over issues of religion by the regular operation of secular law as a source of private rights created at will by private actors. This is quite distinct from cases where religious practice collides with secular law created directly by coercive public command so as to bind all subjects.
For example, where a group forms an association based on civil institutions of contract, co-ownership and trust in order to pursue a common religious life, then regular enforcement of those private-law agreements and shared property rights can give the courts a lever to decide matters of religion enshrined in the original constitution of the group. Thus if A and B vest property into common or entrusted ownership and agree that this will be used to support a certain form of religious practice, creed, and ritual, then A may sue B to force him by law not to vary the practice, creed, or ritual, as a matter of contract, property, or trust law.
Successors may perpetually rely on the original agreements to enforce religious forms many generations later.
And a religious form of life may be "double-entrenched" by making the original means of governance of the religious community a fundamental condition of the association and so immune to normal majoritarian vote. These issues were fought out in many great cases before and after the Disruption, and this jurisprudence forms a backdrop to Lord Rodger's important dissent in the Jewish Free School Case of But it was not cited as authority for any 'beneficiary principle' or 'certainty of objects' rule in the general texts of trusts and equity until well toward the middle of the nineteenth century.
Its real celebrity as a leading decision dates to the early and mid-twentieth century, as lawyers grappled with the challenge of amorphous beneficial objects in the new environments of family and corporate tax planning, corporate finance, pensions, and offshore jurisdictions. The urgent problems facing lawyers at the time of Morice were rather different, and harked back to two linked issues that had troubled the legal system since before the Reformation -- controlling the deathbed disherison of heirs, and restraining the putting of testamentary property into mortmain, that is perpetual or 'deadhand' control of property by ecclesiastical bodies or other corporations.
This explains why Morice was early picked up by cases and texts on mortmain and charitable uses, and remained rather invisible in the key literatures on trusts. The beneficiary principle had to become controversial before it could be noticed properly as a foundational doctrine. I examine how the equitable law of future assignments, designed to enforce paid-for promises and uphold the interests of assignees, is in tension with another 'equitable' policy established by statute, namely the jurisdiction to prevent preferential assignments that tend to defraud creditors by blocking recourse against debtors' assets.
The High Court of Australia has been particularly active in this area, issuing an important judgments from the early 20th century to the present day. This body of law demonstrates the intermingling of equity jurisprudence and statute. Simpson's approach can be seen as a species of 'thick description' that ultimately shares much with the intellectual world of linguistic philosophy that he assails. Simpson's quarrel with Hart can thus be redrawn as a quarrel between two variant forms of British empiricism; Simpson's purposes are not so radically different to Hart's as he claims.
The main difference is that Simpson relies on a shared and often parodic understanding with his audience of the nuances of common-law culture, whilst Hart is more interested in how linguistic usage common to contemporary lawyers can reveal general qualities of law. These are not rival enterprises.
