Description of FA Mann The Lawyer and His Legacy:

This publication follows the life and enduring impact of F. A. Mann, a German Jewish lawyer who sought refuge in the UK in 1933 to escape racial persecution in Germany. Subsequently, he rose to prominence as one of the preeminent legal minds of his era, demonstrating proficiency in both legal practice and scholarship.

With contributions from established and emerging scholars, legal professionals, and members of the judiciary worldwide, "F. A. Mann: The Lawyer and His Legacy" is divided into three sections. The first part provides a legal biography of F. A. Mann, emphasizing his background, connections, and insights gleaned from previously unexplored archival materials. The second part encompasses the various sub-disciplines and practice areas in which Mann was involved, examining his role in shaping them. The third part focuses on monetary law, reflecting Mann's significant influence and the current relevance of monetary law issues.

By drawing on approximately 12,500 letters from Mann's personal correspondence with judges, academics, and legal practitioners, this book delves into how Mann's biography, his extensive knowledge of German and English law, and his engagement in academia and legal practice have collectively contributed to his enduring impact on law and legal scholarship.
