Description

Judicial appointments, the rule of law, activism on the High Court, the push for indigenous recognition, the role of style in writing judgments, legal images in fiction’s cave of shadows – novelist and former judge Nicholas Hasluck covers these and other issues in this intriguing collection of occasional pieces. There are glimpses along the way of some remarkable personalities: Gough Whitlam, John Howard, Lord Denning, radical judge A.B. Piddington, well-known writers such as Gore Vidal, Germaine Greer, Clive James, Christopher Brennan, the Durack sisters, and activist Don McLeod, who led the historic Aboriginal workers strike.

The links between legal argument and literary works and the way in which they can enhance the teaching and practice of law is reflected in the book’s title – Jigsaw: Patterns in Law and Literature.
