The depreciation of the work and role of jurists in history always coincide with the decline of civil thought and the eclipsing of political liberties: when the method of legal professionals has been reduced to a cold and sterile series of cases, unworthy of the name of knowledge, and the study of law has been reduced to a bothersome and badly put-together group of regulations, society normally is either recovering from a crisis or about to begin one.
(Angelo Sraffa, The Reform of Commercial Legislation and the Role of Jurists, 1913)
