Duquesne Law Review


I have just finished reading an absorbing work, The Law Revolt, by Melvin Belli. In it Mr. Belli tells of the monumentally drastic changes which have occurred in our substantive and procedural law during the last half century or so. Any other author would probably have named a similar work, Development in the Law, or The Evolution of Law, but Melvin Belli, with an ever-youthful enthusiasm for all things appertaining to his dedicated profession, would never attach so staid a label to any handiwork of his. And yet, this internationally famous lawyer, with all the vividness of his personality, was really conservative in his naming of what has recently happened in the legal universe.
