Some Opinions of Professors and Tutors
1. The Bar:
- “I have most carefully examined the work, and shall most certainly recommend it to all students reading with mefor the Bar Examinations.”
- “It appears to me to be an invaluable book to a student who desires to do well in his examinations. The sections dealing with Criminal Law and Procedure are, in my opinion, especially valuable. They deal with these difficult subjects in a manner exactly fitted to the examinations; and in tins the work differs from any other book I know.”
- “I have been reading through Dr. Odgers’ Common Law, and find it a most excellent work for the Bar Final, also for the BarCriminal Law.”
2. The Universities.
- “I consider it to be a useful and comprehensive work on a very wide subject, more especially from the point of view of a law student. I shall be glad to recommend it to the favourable attention of law students of the University.’
- THE BOOK FOR THE SOLICITORS. FINAL. “Once the Intermediate is over, the articled clerk has some latitude allowed as to his course of study. And, without the slightest hesitation, we say that the first book he should tackle after negotiating the Intermediate is ‘Odgers on the Common Law”.
- “The volumes may seem a somewhat ‘hefty task,’ but these two volumes give one less trouble to read than any single volume of any legal text-book of our acquaintance. They cover, moreover, all that is most interesting in the wide field of legal studies in a manner more interesting than it has ever been treated before”
