KIRKUS REVIEW

Author of several novels founded in English Law, Mr. Cecil here presents the case for the aspiring barrister-solicitor- judge and guides him through the steps of acquiring not only the matter but the manner of the court. It is of interest for his American cousin in the difference of the training, study and customs, and Cecil, with his airy touch, keeps his material on the brighter side. Along with the aspects of the training is a general picture of the legal edifice in England -- the main bodies of law, the Courts and their offices;- life at the bar, behaviour, and the various ramifications of the practicing lawyer's cases, trials, clients, etc. A specialized area for this, and, within that, of particular appeal to those lawyers here who are concerned or connected with some part of the English legal system.
