Frank Manning Covert: Fifty Years in the Practice of Law
Fifty Years in the Practice of Law is the engrossing autobiography of a public citizen who worked almost non-stop at a career he both loved and cherished. A power - often behind the scenes - in big business, high finance, and Liberal Party politics, Frank Manning Covert advised Pierre Trudeau to seek the leadership of the federal Liberal Party. He was the brains behind Sun Life's head office move from Montreal to Toronto, introduced labour relations as a practice area for corporate lawyers, and reorganized two universities.
