9780199677344: Judge and Jurist: Essays in Memory of Lord Rodger

Lord Rodger of Earlsferry was a distinguished judge and scholar. He was a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and the author of many high quality law journal articles and two books. Written in memory of Lord Rodger, this collection contains 47 essays by Lord Rodger's friends and colleagues from the UK and Europe. The essays reflect Lord Rodger's role as a leading judge and also his wide-ranging academic interests including Roman law, Scots law and legal history, and a miscellany of other topics.

The authors in this volume are leading academics or judges, and a particularly notable feature is the nine essays written by Supreme Court justices. As the highest judges in the UK they provide a unique insight into the work of the Supreme Court, as well as Lord Rodger's work in the Court. The book also includes the memorial tributes to Lord Rodger which explain his remarkable legal career, including his roles as Lord Advocate (Senior Law Officer of Scotland) Lord President of the Court of Session, Lord of Appeal in Ordinary and, finally, Justice of the UK Supreme Court. The essays include personal reminiscences of Lord Rodger, helping the reader to understand why he was so highly regarded and why his untimely death has dealt such a devastating blow to law in the UK.

Review:

The essays are rich with history, rewarding the reader with a wealth of knowledge and hopefully with a crisper understanding of some of the generalities and nuances of Roman Law... The editors, authors and publishers, at Oxford University Press, are to be commended on the compilation of such a fitting and inspiring tribute to a man whose immense contributions to the development of the very fabric of our legal system will, undoubtedly, outlast us all. Sheriff T Welsh QC, SCOLAG Legal Journal 'Of Lord Rodger's brilliant mind and his scintillating work none of the contributors is in any doubt, A thoughtful bibliography attached to this volume records 107 learned articles by the judge which speaks volumes for his erudition. His forthright style, clarity of expression, and eschewal of trendy theories mark him out as truely remarkable. This volume will be savoured by "lawyers and none lawyers who find interest and enjoyment in reading about the law", as one of the contributors neatly puts it. The Commonwealth Lawyer This volume records the achievements and captures the spirit of a distinguished judge and academic lawyer who so enjoyed life ... Lord Dyson, now Master of the Rolls, recalls that "it was fun to be in his company. His laugh was more in the nature of a roar; it could be heard from quite some distance. I can still hear it reverberating down the corridor." It can be heard on opening this book. David Pannick, QC, The Times ...It rewards the reader with a wealth of knowledge, anecdote and affection for one of the greatest legal figures of our times. Sheriff Frank C Crowe, Journal of the Law Society of Scotland The truly extraordinary thing about Lord Rodger of Earlsferry is that he not only delivered judgements of the highest calibre but also wrote books and articles that any university professor would be proud to publish. J D Ford, The Edinburgh Law Review
