I visited the United Kingdom’s Supreme Court building today, but court was in recess until October. The building is modest compared to the surroundings which include Parliament and Westminster Abbey. I found it fascinating, however, that a beautiful sculpture of Abraham Lincoln is placed in front of the building housing the court. Lincoln is my favorite of our Presidents, and I have beautiful bust of Honest Abe in my chambers. The bust was sculpted by Chris Cook, who is the son of Ed Cook, my former law partner. Chris was an exceptional lawyer and he has turned into a wonderful artist. Anyway, and as shown by the photo below, I was struck by the figure of Lincoln, the quintessential American lawyer, in service to the ends of British justice.
