will not easily be disputed.

1. The inherent uncertainty uncertainty when of jurisprudential will give law will thus
gradually give
place to the certainty of Statute law: on the occasion of every
decision on the question of law an proportionable advance will have been made to so desirable an end.

2. No portion of law will in future be made without the privity and consent
