"The law is the witness and external deposit of our moral life. Its history is the history of the moral development of the race."
No jurist has left his mark on American law like Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. A steadfast defender of free speech, Supreme Court Justice Holmes also championed judicial restraint, advocating that a judgeâs opinions shouldnât prevent him or her from upholding the will of the elected legislative majority. Holmes did more than hand down rulings in his finely crafted decisionsâhe inspired the people to follow the law.
In The Path of the Law, Holmes discusses his personal philosophy on legal practice. The Common Law is a series of lectures that established Holmesâs reputation as a witty and articulate writer.
