Charles Dickens And The Law

Christopher West, suitably attired, discusses his topics lightly and entertainingly, using plenty of illustrations and humour.

This talk will look at many of the facts and observations of Charles Dickens's early experience of the law as a child, working within the profession in his early career and his observations as he progresses, fighting cases, finding problems with copyright and how this is all presented through his novels. Charles Dickens greatly influenced attitudes and left a great legacy of influence and reform, much of it still relevant today. There will be many illustrations and references to the immediate locality, including the nearby church where his parents married, Fleet Street, the Old Bailey and the Inns of Court.
