In 2019 William Twining and Harry Arthurs, academic lawyers whose careers peaked during the second half of the twentieth century, published memoirs revealing the central motivations and forces underlying their intellectual endeavour. Their books are a source of great nourishment, provoking readers to think deeply about the central challenges of the discipline and what might be done to bring it closer to realising its full potential. They also reveal what it was like to be a leading academic who pushed disciplinary boundaries. This review considers and compares the contributions of these memoirs to the field of histories of legal scholars. It also examines the relevance of each book to their primary readership: twenty first century academic lawyers.
