Description

Attorney Charles Rembar traces the growth of the present legal system from its origins in medieval Britain (when legal dispute was often settled in battle) through the development of trial by jury, and the forging of such seminally important concepts and procedures as equity, hearsay, pleading, and appeal, to the most recent changes in the rights of the accused.
