Authors Marion Ellis and Howard Covington have teamed up again, this time to celebrate the centennial of the Mecklenburg County Bar. Their combined take on its history is one that lawyers and non-lawyers alike will find compelling as it sheds light not only on one community and its attorneys, but on the profession and the nation as a whole. An Independent Profession begins long before the first formal organization of the local bar. It traces a two hundred forty-three year story from one lawyer and a one-room log courthouse in a frontier colonial backwater through the legal profession’s role in shaping, and in turn being shaped by, the growth of a community to its present-day role in the affairs of a major American city. And it tells this story against the backdrop of the political, economic and social evolution of the community, the state and nation.
