Law is fast becoming a major branch of modern studies. English is the medium of instruction. English is also one of the important subjects in Five Year Law Course. The curriculum development committee working under the directions of the professional council and the university authorities has recommended law students to study the autobiographies of the great jurists like Hon. Mr. M. C. Setalwad (My Life) and Hon. Mr. M. Hidayatullah (My Own Boswell). There is a great need to study the lives and works of the great jurists like Hon. Mr. Lord Halsbury, Hon. Mr. Nani Palkhiwala, Hon. Mr. Lord Atkin and last but not least Hon. Mr. Lord Denning. Lytton Strachey, the celebrated biographer of Queen Victoria, stated in 1918 The art of biography has fallen on evil times (Prasad 1999: 230). Similar is the position of the research works upon the Life and Works in Indian Universities when the theses on the same have been accepted by the world s leading universities in various interdisciplinary studies. They include architects, poets, critics, philosophers etc. We have chosen a legendary judge of our times for this purpose. Thesis on Life and Works is not exactly biography. It includes critical studies and the contribution of the concerned personalities on the specific branches of knowledge. The researcher has put forward the following research scheme. It is a broad title without any further shade. However along with the exhaustive Life and Works, The Researcher has attempted certain shades in Part IV- Epilogue which basically are the critical studies on the selected works.%%%References p. 272-276, Appendix p. 277-287
