Neely, Robert D. The Lawyers of Dickens and Their Clerks. Boston: The Christopher Publishing House, . 67pp. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 00-021520. ISBN 1-58477-091-0. Cloth. $60. * In this delightful and humorous book Neely takes a look at the satire and irony in Dickens' work as shown in his derisive characterization of solicitors, barristers, judges and clerks. He gives us Jaggers, the criminal lawyer who notifies Pip of his "great expectations," Stryver, the unscrupulous trial lawyer in A Tale of Two Cities, and many others. Lovers of Dickens and anyone acquainted with the law will find this to be an entertaining read.
