These two pamphlets by one of His Majesty's Counsel, Chancellor of the Dioceses 6f Liverpool and Bristol and Judge of County Courts, represent respectively efforts to penetrate the psychological mystery of what has proved to be one of the most baffling of legal institutions, the corporation, and to account for the modern concept of the State. The first essay was the presidential address to the Society of Public Teachers of Law in England and Wales in 1929. The second was originally published in the Law Quarterly Review in 1923.
