The greatest fault of lawyers, Mr. Keeffe recalls, is their assumption that a rule of law is right. The purpose of a national ministry of justice would be to provide a "detached observer" who can "view the field [of law] in its entirety," to quote Justice Cardozo. Mr. Keeffe repeats the call of Bentham and Cardozo and Pound for such an institution.
