The central thesis of this book is that while the legal standards established by judges in the 19th century were appropriate for the social climate of the day, they are not appropriate for the needs and attitudes of the 20th century. They must to be moulded and modified to suit the demands and viewpoints of the present.

A remarkable account of Lord Denning's individual contribution to the evolution of English law in the twenty-first century may be found in The Discipline of Law. It is organised into seven primary sections, each of which focuses on a certain area of the law where that transformation has been most noticeable.
