Osgoode Hall Law Journal

Document Type



This essay aims to bypass the doctrine/policy approach to contemporary legal analysis. Instead of resting content with an elaboration of legal doctrine, the authors incorporate social and economic evidence surrounding the call of a demand loan. This evidence creates an understanding of the practice of receivership law; a practice which legal doctrine inadequately describes. Secondly, instead of being content with an assertion of policy, the authors attempt to understand the practice by assessing the evidence in the light of the Greek forms of corrective justice and distributive justice.
