Summary This collection of essays by judges, academics and barristers contributes to the understanding of Sir Owen Dixon's jurisprudence, his judicial method and present-day significance. It ranges widely over the various branches of the law which were enriched by his contributions. The essays are arranged in three sections in this volume. The first takes up a number of fundamental questions going to the character of Dixon's judicial philosophy, including an assessment of the nature and merits of 'legalism', as well as a study of Dixon's views of the Privy Council. The second section is concerned with his contributions to public law, including his decisions in respect of the criminal law. The third section is concerned with his judgments in private law, including his influence on real property, equity, contract and tort.
