Fifty years in a law profession she loves, twenty-four spent as a judge, Nancy Morrison is a story-teller and trail-blazer. Entertaining, at times warm and witty, this memoir also reminds us of dark times, of the ever-relevant social and political issues of the day, the need for law reform. Here is a life that was never dull, including the twenty-four years Nancy shared with actor Bruno Gerussi. Benched is a must-read for members of the law profession, written by one of their own, and for students who may be considering Law as a career. In addition, for women and other minorities, the book is a reminder of our history, when today’s rights were not a given.
