<p><strong>Sir Frederick Pollock</strong> (1845-1937) taught at Oxford as Corpus Professor of Jurisprudence and served as Professor of Common Law in the Inns of Court. He wrote a series of textbooks, including <em>The Law of Torts</em> (1887), that emphasized underlying principles rather than specific applications of laws, earning him recognition for helping to modernize English legal education. Pollock was the first editor of <em>Law Quarterly Review</em> (established in the United Kingdom in 1885) and served as editor of the <em>Law Reports</em> from 1895-1935. He is also known for his lifelong correspondence with United States Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841-1935). Pollock's volume on torts discusses categories of tortious actions and specific wrongs, liabilities and exceptions to liabilities, parties to a tort suit, and remedies.</p>
