LIFE AND LAW by Samuel Williston


Email this review


Ferret out the lawyers in your community who studied at Harvard Law School and you have your market for this warm and human autobiography of a beloved and honored professor of fifty years standing. At times he is sidetracked into meticulous detail of such things as illness, and the interest flags; but on the whole the book is stimulating and revealing, showing not only the training of students, but the trends of legal thought and practice. But best of all is that aspect of the book that reveals the man himself and his philosophy of life, of the law books he has written, and of his experience in various branches of legal work. His is a brave and serene spirit.
