Book Description:

In this 1912 edition of his 1911 history, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charles Warren sets out a historical sketch of law and lawyers in America from the Revolutionary War until 1860. It will be useful to legal historians both British and American, and to anyone with an interest in the foundations of American legal institutions.

From the Publisher:

This volume gives a fascinating historical insight to the men who composed the American Bar of the past and to the influences that produced the great American lawyers. Part One covers the legal situation in the American colonies, including the status of the common law as applied by courts, composition of the courts, descriptions of the leading lawyers, legislation on the legal profession, the education of lawyers, and an account of the Colonial Bar Associations. Part Two portrays the growth of the American Bar from the foundation of the United States Supreme Court to the opening of the Civil War. Leading cases before the Supreme Court are offered as striking events in legal history. The book describes the lawyers who argued those cases and the manner of argument. All those who would like to know the role of the American Bar in American history will be engrossed by this work.
