Abstract: DURING the interval between the first appearance of the Law Journal and this second issue, the life of the Law Society has been marked by constant activity. Various lecturers have kindly given us the privilege of hearing their views on matters of social interest; and we are here reproducing one of these lecturers. Debates have also been held, and the motion "That the rights of the individual are above the rights of the State" evoked a very heated discussion in which many of the members took part. The motion was defeated by one vote. But of course of all the activities of our Society, moots are the most lively. In our moot having as subject matter the question of foreign marriages - a most crucial question - we had the honour of listening to Professor W. Buhagiar, LL.D., B.A., B.C.L., in his role of judge. In dealing with the case he affirmed the principle that it was against our public policy to consider as invalid a Catholic marriage contracted abroad by a Maltese contrary to the formalities required by the lex loci.
