(p.121) 13 The Form and Language of Lord Rodger’s Judgments
Judge and Jurist

Lord Reed

Oxford University Press

This chapter reflects on the form and language of Alan Rodger's judgments. His judgments are well written pieces of English prose. Their language is vigorous and arresting. They are persuasive, skilfully deploying humour and rhetoric to make a point. They are lucid and scholarly. They also reflect the personality of the man who wrote them: his interests, his sense of humour, his energy, and sheer effervescence.

Keywords:   Alan Rodger, judgments, form, language
