Often innovative, frequently controversial, few would disagree that Lord denning is the greatest and most colourful judge this century has known.

From his appointment as a High Court judge in 1944 to his retirement in 1982 from the position of Master of the Rolls that he had held for the previous 20 years, Lord Denning's decisions and thinking have had a profound effect on the development of English law.

This collection of essays by leading academics is a considered, critical assessment of his contribution to and influence upon the law.
