Law in Context

Abstract from Volume 16 No 1 (1998) Misplaced Traditions: British Lawyers, Colonial Peoples

British Masculinities, Canadian Lawyers: Canadian Legal Education, 1900-1930

W Wesley Pue

It matters that their deliberations concerning legal education took place in a context within which assumptions regarding ethnicity, masculinity, class, progress, and colonisation constituted common sense.
