Rational Basis of Legal Institutions, 23 COL. L. REV. 609 (1923)

Abstract

To say that a legal institution,-private property, the federal government of the United States, Columbia University,---exists is to say that a group of persons is doing something, is acting in some way. It is to point to a particular aspect of human behavior. If the federal constitution had not been written and ratified by somebody, the legal institution called the federal government would never have existed. A legal institution is human behavior.
