Walter S. Cox, a retired judge of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, wrote this popular work not to make lawyers of women but to enable them to decide what kinds of situations were appropriate for consultation with a lawyer.

Designed as a primer on law, the book presents 41 lessons on such legal topics as equity, property, executory devises, bailments, and corporations.
