Based upon an exegesis of the history of equity as a system of law, a comparison of Arkansas' present separate courts system with its own predecessors and with systems of other states, and, further, based upon an in-depth investigation of the practical and theoretical arguments-both positive and negative-concerning merger, it will be clearly seen that the merger of law and equity courts in the State would be neither a panacea for all judicial woes nor open a Pandora's box of abounding confusion. The merger, if effected, would present some operational difficulties in its inauguration, but it would ultimately ensure a more complete form of justice than does the present system.
