If Sir John Salmond is taken as being an inaugural or founding father of not only a law school, but also of a New Zealand jurisprudence, two questions arise: What might have been inherited from Salmond's jurisprudence? And, How might that inheritance be received today? This article offers a response to these questions by considering Salmond's jurisprudence in terms of a conduct of life organised around the office and persona of the jurist.
