Product DescriptionFrom the Mayflower Compact to Big Dan's Rape Trial...
As its name implies, Legal Chowder: Lawyering and Judging in Massachusetts is an eclectic soup that combines the proudest with the most bizarre moments of Massachusetts legal history. An anthology in the truest sense, this book takes a fresh look at selected cases that have molded Massachusetts legal history, the distinguished persons who argued and judged them, and the institutions that have influenced them. An exhilarating walk from the utopian ideal of the Puritan Experiment to the profound transformation in legal practice of the past 30 years, this book examines all corners of the Commonwealth's rich heritage of legal thought, word and deed.
