A Subaltern Theory of Equity

Cite Embed

Kwame Akuffo discusses some of the central ideas of equity’s jurisprudence and how they have evolved over the centuries of the development of the common law system.  One specific and central strand of the common law system, which is the subject of this interview, is equity. The presence of equity as the so-called helpmate of the common law is generally what is considered to make the English legal system a juridical binary or duality. This putative duality is expressed as differentiating the English legal system from all other systems of law, as the co-inherence of equity marks out the English system as a unique entity.
