John Frank, Lincoln as a Lawyer, hardcover
Provides a Penetrating Analysis of Lincoln’s Law Career
Frank, John P. LINCOLN AS A LAWYER. Chicago: 1991. 2 nd Edition, 208p. New Introduction by Cullom Davis.
A fine study by a former professor at the Yale University law school and law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black.
Lincoln spent 25 years as a lawyer; no one can truly understand him as a public figure without knowing these years. Frank’s fine, analytical, study reveals the strong points of Lincoln’s mind that made him a great practitioner of the law, and also a great politician.
Although the genre of Lincoln legal studies is thriving in the 21st Century, Lincoln as a Lawyer has not been supplanted.
