The English and Colonial Bars in the Nineteenth Century (1983) explores the impact of a changing society on the legal profession. Of central concern is the practising bar of England and Wales and its evolution from a small, highly centralised profession to a mass body that had lost much of its corporate unity. This study also examines the role of the inns of court as forging members of the governing elite and looks at the participation of barristers in the world of business, as well as considering the structure of the colonial legal profession.
