Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634), the first judge to strike down a law, gave us modern common law by turning medieval common law inside-out. Through his resisting strong-minded kings, he bore witness for judicial independence. Coke is the earliest judge still cited routinely by practicing lawyers. This book breaks new ground as the first scholarly biography of Coke, whose most recent general biography appeared in 1957, and draws revealingly on Coke's own papers and notebooks. The book covers Coke's early life and career, to the end of the reign of Elizabeth I in 1603 (a second volume will cover Coke's career under James I and Charles I). In particular, this book highlights Coke's close connection with the Puritans of England; his learning, legal practice, and legal theory; his family life and ambitious dealings; and the treason cases he prosecuted.

From the Back Cover:

“[Sir Edward Coke and the Elizabethan Age] is well written with flashes of brilliance.”—Sixteenth Century Journal
“It would have been easy to provide a portrait of a successful if idiosyncratic lawyer, but Boyer gives us warts and all and manages to capture a real sense of the man himself.”—HISTORY

About the Author:

Allen Boyer is senior appellate counsel for the Department of Enforcement of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
