Abstract

Judah Benjamin (1811–1884) was one of the greatest of nineteenth‐century lawyers. This article analyses how a young man who might have been marginalized in society because of the circumstances of his birth, ethnic origin, and religious identity rose to prominence in law, politics, and business in the United Kingdom and the United States.
