ETERNAL LAWYER by Robert N. Wilkin


Email this review


An elevated biography of Cicero, that emphasizes his personal, governmental, legal and social philosophy. Of primary interest to lawyers, this surveys his ideals of legal practice, his experiences in jurisprudence, his career as prosecutor, judge and orator. Though it does not slight the human side of his life, indicating the crises, the effects of political changes, the influence of men and events, it is essentially a professional book, in which legal parallels of Roman days are related to current happenings. For lawyers, however, a fresh interpretation of an old master.
