Trivia

A.P. Herbert studied law but never had a practice, becoming a writer instead. He was the last MP for Oxford University before the seat was abolished and he only sod to bring in reform of the divorce laws. He presented the absurdities of the law much as one of his misleading cases. Thanks to him the woman doesn't have to spend the night in an hotel with a man and a detective to get her decree. The absurdity of these laws would have made an excellent case. See more »
