Hofstra Law Review


Professors Fred Zacharias and Bruce Green have recently published the false assertion that Henry Lord Brougham, in later life, repudiated his famous statement in Queen Caroline's Case about the advocate's obligation of zealous representation. They base their claim, uncritically, upon a single source which is questionable on its face, and without their having done any further research. The truth is quite the contrary. In fact, in an autobiography written half a century after the Queen's trial, Brougham not only reiterated his statement, but declared it to be the sacred duty that [the advocate] owes his client.
