About the Author
Leslie B. Curzon was a very well-known and respected senior barrister, academic, and author of many books and articles on legal topics. He taught and practised in the UK and internationally, and served on English legal examination boards throughout his career.
Leslie not only had expertise in the law but also an extensive understanding of so many other fields. His Dictionary of Law is testimony to this. . . . he was the true polymath.
