Critics’ Reviews

This publication is the latest in the always high anticipated "Lives", written by Dr JM Bennett. … it is a much more detailed and encompassing review of the life of one of Tasmania’s earliest barristers, who moved to NSW as an acting judge, in the hope of securing a permanent appointment, become the third Chief Justice of that State. … This is not a book which can be read in one sitting, nor for that matter over a day or so. … Like all "Lives" this book makes for a fascincating look into our past. It may even provide some thought about our future. It is highly recommended to all who have an interest in the law. – Law Society of Tasmania, Law Letter, Autumn 2010
