This book is based on six lectures which I delivered at the request of the Council-of Legal Education in Michaelmas Term 1924. It is intended for students who are beginning to read law.

From the very beginning of his course the student is brought into contact with some of the original sources of the law - with statutes, reported cases, and books of authority, from all periods in the history of the law.

I think that a little knowledge of the evolution of these sources, and of the environment in which they were produced, will help him to understand them more easily, and to use them more intelligently . From the very beginning of his course, also, the student is brought into contact with the great judges and chancellors who have helped to make our modern law.

I think that some knowledge of the place of these great men in our legal history, and of the nature of their contributions to our law, may be of some assistance, and may give an added interest to the study of their arguments and decisions.
