Karl Llewellyn described Thomas Scrutton as 'the greatest English-speaking commercial judge of a century'. Scrutton played a key role in a number of politically sensitive court cases from the Great War to the 1930s. This biography draws on unpublished sources to evaluate his contribution as counsel, campaigner and judge in a number of areas: the development of a modern law of copyright; the checking of executive power in and after the Great War; and his attempt to develop English commercial law on a basis which reflected the practices and expectations of the commercial community. In addition to providing valuable insights into the nature of legal practice and advancement in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the book examines Llewellyn's claim that Scrutton adopted a 'realist' approach to the development of commercial law, and uses the body of Scrutton's judgments to explore the limits of a 'realist' approach to jurisprudence.

Review:

'... admirers of Scrutton ... have reason to be grateful to David Foxton for producing a close and rigorous assessment of Scrutton's life ... The Life of Thomas E. Scrutton is well written, thoroughly researched and ... can be most warmly recommended.' Roderick Munday, The Cambridge Law Journal

'Mr Foxton's biography shows elegantly and conclusively why Scrutton LJ's impact on the law has been so much greater than that of his forensic and judicial rival, John Hamilton.' Richard Aikens, Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly

Book Description:

This biography of one of England's greatest judges recounts his involvement as barrister, campaigner and judge in key controversies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - the Irish question, the overreaching of executive power in the Great War and the Anglo-Irish War, and his enduring contribution to commercial law.
