Abstract

Using readings on wills, this article argues that readings in the Inns of Court were not in a state of decline in the years before the Civil War. Readings addressed new legislation with comprehensive coverage of the major topics found in the statute, presented sound analysis and examples of the law involved, and provided the audience present or later manuscript owners with many important contemporary cases related to the statute. These attributes reveal a legal profession responding effectively to new legislation.
