Book Description
Devecmon, William C. In Re Shakespeare's "Legal Acquirements": Notes by an Unbeliever Therein. New York: The Shakespeare Press, 1899. iii, 51 pp. Reprinted 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-439-6. ISBN-10: 1-58477-439-8. Cloth. $60. * The large number of sophisticated legal references in Shakespeare's work and his association with the Inns of Court led many to conclude that he was once a barrister, clerk or law student. This idea took root in the late eighteenth century and reached fruition in such works as Shakespeare A Lawyer (1858) by William L. Rushton and Shakespeare's Legal Acquirements Considered (1859) by John Campbell (which is available as a Lawbook Exchange reprint). Devecmon refutes this view, arguing that the Bard's knowledge was that of a well-read layman.
