Common Law Judge:
Selected Writings of Chief Justice Jack Pope of Texas

Edited by Marilyn P. Duncan

Chief Justice Jack Pope is widely acknowledged in the legal community as one of the Texas judiciary’s brightest stars. During his 38 years on the bench he not only authored more than one thousand opinions, many of them landmark cases, but he also led the charge to bring about fundamental reforms in the judicial system.

CJ Pope’s articles, lectures, and essays on the common law and the art and science of judicial decision-making—many of them unpublished until now—are gems of legal writing. This book, which includes the best of those writings as well as excerpts from 10 of his landmark Civil Appeals Court and Supreme Court opinions, is a must-read for Texas attorneys and judges as well as others interested in the evolution of Texas law.
The book is available to Society members at a special discounted price of $20, including sales tax. The price for non-members is $29.95.
