Persons and Masks of the Law

Legal thought in this country has always focused on the rules rather than on the persons affected by the rules. Persons and Masks of the Law restores
the balance by taking a person-centered view of the law. Renowned legal scholar, Judge John T. Noonan, shows how even great jurists have chosen the
“masks of the law” over persons, his surprising examples being Thomas Jefferson, George Wythe, Benjamin Cardozo, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.–four
of the greatest lawyers of the United States.
