Great Jamaican Advocates, like its precursor, Historical Foundations of Jamaican Law, brings new and exciting revelations to legal literature in Jamaica. Raphael Codlin examines the fascinating careers of five of the greatest advocates to have enriched the legal landscape of Jamaica:-

  • Winston Frankson
  • Ian Ramsay
  • Frank Phipps
  • Angela Hudson-Phillips
  • David Muirhead
As Codlin explains in his preface, he seeks here "to foster understanding and appreciation for the contributions that advocates make to the stabilization and civilized operation of society. Indeed, in today's world... advocates ought no longer to confine themselves to performing their functions in court. Instead, they need to apply their knowledge and influence towards the greater good of mankind."

The outstanding advocates honoured in this volume have met and surpassed this challenge.
