When They Were Lawyers

When They Were Lawyers

Federal Judges Revealed

William Domnarski

Oxford University Press

This chapter details the lives of judges when they were lawyers. The oral histories portray the practice of law in the decades of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, and present a sharp image of young lawyers—before large firms and online research tools—struggling and then succeeding at the practice of law. As lawyers, they tended to work in smaller firms—sometimes by themselves. Although some evolved toward various specialties, such as litigation, most worked in the general practice of law.
