This is a memoir of the professional life of an Australian Babyboomer as a lawyer.
The author has practised law for more than forty years as a barrister or solicitor, and has presided over one or another statutory tribunal for nearly thirty years. Of late he has concentrated on his writing in history, literature, and philosophy. He has learned much from many summer schools at Cambridge, Harvard, and Oxford.
The author wanted to thank those other lawyers who have helped him as a lawyer, and to try to pass on to others the lessons that he has learned in practising law in various ways. The book is dedicated to the idea that the required professional skill and attitude only come from vocation and experience, and that a good life is open to those who are prepared to put in the time and effort, to acquire the judgment, and to show the loyalty and courage that membership of this profession calls for.
Aspects of the boyhood and youth of an Australian babyboomer may be seen in a companion volume, Confessions of a Babyboomer. 60,000 words.
