This chapter discusses the career and output of the man in whose honour this book has been compiled. It charts his path to the role of Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland, surveys how the decisions he made were dealt with when they were appealed to the House of Lords and Supreme Court and briefly analyses the quantity and nature of the judgments he himself delivered in the Supreme Court. We conclude that the judicial mind reflected in his judgments became ever more liberal as his career progressed.
