RAMIREZ CLEVES, Gonzalo Andrés. El caso de la hacienda 'el Novillero' o 'La Dehesa de Bogotá' de 1834. El tránsito del derecho colonial al derecho republicano. Rev. Derecho Privado [online]. 2014, n.26, pp.73-104. ISSN 0123-4366.

The article analyses the implementation of the Act of July 10 1824 that eliminated the 'Mayorazgos' and sustitutions and another forms of property in Colombia related with linkages. This Act was applied in the judicial case related with the inheritance of the Hacienda 'El Novillero' or 'La Dehesa de Bogotá', a very big property near the capital of Colombia, Santa Fe. The case was solved by Arbitration on May 1834 and showed the changes and transitions from the Colonial law to the Republican Law. The study of the case shows also that the legal argumentation based of laws, doctrine and judicial precedent was a mixture of Colonial old practices and new Republican understanding of the law. The parts represented by Vicente Azuero and Ramón Ortiz used Spanish laws, Legal Dictionaries, Bentham's references and Principles of law to solve the case. The case also shows the women rights in the inheritance. Finally the case notes the need in Republic times to eliminated older forms of property and allowing the free trade and commerce of the land in order to have a better use and economic production.
