|(2 cr.) Marital Property has been defined as Any interest, (right,
power, privlege, or immunity) or aggregate of interests which
arise in one spouse, with respects to things owned or acquired by
the other spouse, solely by virtue of existence of the marital
relation, but excluding from it the 'Bare Expectancy' of
inheriting upon the death interstate of the other (Marsh, 1952).
This seminar, designed for third year students, will explore the
variety of American Marital Property Regimes, whether instituted
by voluntary act of spouses, operation of the law, or judicial
discretion; and the incidents of these regimes during the ongoing
marriage and upon termination of the marriage through divorce or
death. Either a paper, which will satisfy the advanced writing
requirement, or short memoranda on mini-research topics will be
required in lieu of an exam.
