Lives of the Law

Tom Bingham

The topics in this 2011 book are thorny, to use a term reflective of the durian season now.

Tom Bingham is acknowledged as the best judge of his generation.

This is his essays and speeches are divided into 5 topics –
1) the Constitution and Rule of Law
2) the business of judging
3)human rights
4)the Common law
5)Dr. Johnson and Mr. Bentham.

The essays and speeches may be too technical for most readers. Interesting will be his lecture on Magna Carta, essays on habeas corpus, and on the duty of care.
