    "The book is not intended to be an exposition of legal propositions. It is only an attempt to draw a picture of the changes that are taking place. The reason for the title "The Changing Law" is because so many people think that the law is certain and that it can only be changed by Parliament. The truth is that the law if often uncertain and it is continually being changed, or perhaps I should say developed, by the judges. In theory the judges do not make law. They only expound it. But as no one knows what the law is until the judges expound it, it follows that they make it. The process of gradual change has been the very life of the common law. The legal profession has usually found itself divided into two camps, those who want to make a change and those who prefer things to stay as they are; and between the two, we have somehow usually found the happy mean. ... If the common law is to retain its place as the greatest system of law that the world has ever seen, it cannot stand still whilst everything else moves on. It must develop too. It must adapt itself to the new conditions. In these lectures, I have shown how this is being done." -- from the Preface, p. vii-viii.
