Leslie Scarman writes in praise of a dynamic judge

  • The Due Process of Law by Lord Denning
    Butterworth, 263 pp, £8.95, February 1980, ISBN 0 406 17607 8

This, the companion volume to The Discipline of Law, completes Lord Denning’s current legal testament – his witness, until his next book, to the cause of justice. He writes on difficult questions of law for the pleasure of ordinary folk: and he succeeds. Yet, for all his racy style (its brevity and bravura could serve as a model for journalists), and notwithstanding his sense of mischief and love of fun, he has produced a serious contribution to the legal study, critical in our time, of the role of the judge in the public life of a common law country.
