Taken on Oath

Taken on Oath

A generation of lawyers

By Jon Faine


A generation of Australian lawyers, interviewed by Jon Faine, describe life in the profession when they entered it -from all States, both sexes and 30, 40, 50, even 60 years ago. This oral history is subjective, impressionistic and inexact - but funny and thought-provoking too.

The lawyers interviewed are wide-ranging (see Contents for details) and they combine to produce a rare 'law' book with wisdom and entertainment in equal parts.
