Judges spend their public lives in courtrooms. They speak to the public through their judgments. But senior judges are frequently invited to contribute to professional, judicial, or academic conferences or publications, on whatever topic engages the attention of the audience at the time.
This book contains a selection of the essays and addresses written or given by the present Senior Law Lord (as a Queen's Bench judge, Lord Justice of Appeal, Master of the Rolls, and the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales) over the last 15 years or so, touching on a wide range of legally related topics.
... beautifully written: scholarly, cogently argued, humorous, and humane.
Counsel, August 2001||exceptionally thoughtful and illuminating
Marcel Berlins, The Guardian||fine collection of essays and speeches
