Excerpt from On Jurisprudence and the Conflict of Laws
This volume contains the five Lectures given by me as Professor to the Inns of Court, and published in the Fortnightly Review in 1878 and 1879. They have now been revised by me, and they are followed by Annotations by my friend Professor A.H.F. Lefroy, of the University of Toronto. In 1877 I was appointed by the Council of Legal Education as Professor of Jurisprudence, International Law, Public and Private, and of Constitutional Law, in conjunction with the present Viscount Bryce, O.M.; and I lectured regularly in the Middle Temple Hall during the twelve years from 1877 to 1889. The later years of my term of office were chiefly occupied by Lectures on Public International Law and on Constitutional Law. Professor James Bryce undertook the entire field of the Civil Law of Home. I may here note that in 1882 I published in the Fortnightly Review two Lectures on the Law of Treason.
I have long known that the Five Lectures contained in this book were much used by students in various Colleges and Halls and in the University of Oxford; and my friends Sir Thomas Erskine Holland, K.C., Albert Dicey, K.C., and others advised me to re-issue them in a substantive volume. But the other large subjects included in my office left me no leisure to revise these five Lectures. And in 1889 I became absorbed in public office and literary work, and I allowed the Lectures to remain in the form of Review articles.
