Reprint of the sole edition. This classic treatise is an incomparable guide to English legal education during the last quarter of the seventeenth century. Written at a time when formal English legal education had reached a low point, it prescribed a self-directed course of study based on reading, compiling commonplace books, attending courts, speaking with lawyers and attending an office or chambers. North [1653-1734], a member of a powerful political family, was a respected member of the Middle Temple and an important chronicler of the Restoration-era legal community.
