SLAYING THE SIXTH GIANT: THE CHANGING FACE OF JUSTICE

BOLTON SCHOOL, 28 NOVEMBER 2019

 

(1) Introduction[1]

  1. It is a pleasure to be back with you today. May I begin by talking with our students? Imagine that you have a passion for the rule of law, perhaps in the same way as for medicine, history, astrophysics, rugby, social media or the latest subject of your affections. That may be a difficult comparison. But if you are to succeed in the world of lawyers and judges you will need to have that passion and an ability to focus it on the problems of others.

[1] I wish to thank John Sorabji for all his help in preparing this lecture.
