The author seeks to give a sweeping discussion the study of law starting with the primitive sources of law and how laws and governance has developed among the great societies of old. Here, the author asserts that these societies studied the power of nature from which they developed their own laws or cultivated a conception natural law. Such societies mentioned are those from which we consider the foundations of legal form and jurisprudence; Babylon, ancient Israel, Egypt, classical Greece and Rome. Then the author offers a brief analysis of the nature of modern legal education, describing the practical and cultural aspects of becoming and being a lawyer.
