Judges spend their public lives in courtrooms. They speak to the public through their judgments. But senior judges are frequently invited to contribute to professional, judicial, or academic conferences or publications, on whatever topic engages the attention of the audience at the time.

This book contains a selection of the essays and addresses written or given by the present Senior Law Lord (as a Queen's Bench judge, Lord Justice of Appeal, Master of the Rolls, and the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales) since the mid-1980s, touching on a wide range of legally related topics.

  • A fascinating selection of essays and speeches by Lord Bingham of Cornhill, the Senior Law Lord and former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales
  • Will appeal to judges, barristers, and solicitors and anyone interested in constitutional, social, and public issues
  • Lord Bingham is often quoted and this selection will make his views more accessible
