Arthur Leff and His Law Dictionary, 94 YALE L.J. 1845 (1985)

Abstract

The ensuing pages (like the books, the articles, and perhaps above all
the marvelous book reviews) speak for themselves. They speak also of the
taste and fidelity of the editors of the Yale Law Journal, who have determined
that nothing from so wonderful a man and mind should be lost.
The entries are generally straightforward and spare, like those in Johnson's
Dictionary, for Arthur (like Johnson) had a sense of genre, and an
honesty that would have prevented his even so much as thinking of offering
to the world a "Law Dictionary" that in prominent part was an alphabetized
array of his own particular views, much less his sallies of wit.
