KIRKUS REVIEW

A noted Italian professor of law writes his conception of the proper respective functions of judge and advocate, and the nature of the judicial process, specifically for the guidance of his son who is about to enter law school. Although concerned with civil law, his conclusions and advice are the old homilies familiar to every law student and lawyer the world around. The book seems to me neither learned, profound, nor original enough to satisfy most scholars,nor well enough written (or perhaps translated) to interest any considerable group of lay readers, nor sufficiently practical to interest the average American lawyer.
