The Safest Shield

Lectures, Speeches and Essays

By Igor Judge

This selection of lectures, speeches, and essays by England's Lord Judge, nearly all written when he was Lord Chief Justice, brings together his analysis of a wide range of important topics which underpin the administration of justice and the rule of law. Apart from a few personal reflections, the discussion includes the development of the Constitution and matters of continuing constitutional uncertainty, with observations about different aspects of the court process and the discharge of judicial responsibilities. Based on Lord Judge's experience in the law and a deep interest in legal history, the book offers sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes amusing but always stimulating reading, and it will provoke a thoughtful reflection on and a better understanding of the arrangements by which the citizens are governed and the practical application of the rule of law. [Subject: Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Legal History]
