Synopses & Reviews
London's legal history is rich and diverse, and the literature and pageantry surrounding it is equally impressive. The range and scope of the city's legal buildings, from the Inns of Court, Chancery and Serjeant's Inns to the Royal Courts of Justice and Central Criminal Court are testimony to the importance of law in London life.;Andrew Goodman guides the reader round the lawyer's quarter of London on a series of walks. With an unerring eye for detail, he identifies historic and present day features whilst providing clear map directions. Containing over 150 illustrations, mainly in colour and including interiors not normally available to the sightseer, this book offers an invaluable guide and a unique souvenir of a highly memorable aspect of London life.
"A fascinating and original book."--Law Society Gazette
