The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1906
In this number we give pictures of Professor J. W. Salmond, who occupies the chair of law in Victoria College, the new building, the Delegates and Secretary to the Easter Tournament, a view of the Cranmer Tennis Courts, and our Representatives.
Professor J. W. Salmond is the eldest son of Professor W. Salmond of the University of Otago. Born in England, he came out to New Zealand as a boy, and was educated at the Otago Boys' High School and the University of Otago. He took his M.A. degree in the University of New Zealand in 1882, and then, having obtained a Gilchrist Scholarship, went to England, where he obtained the degree of LL.B. in the University of London. Returning to New Zealand, he was admitted to the Bar, and having practised for some years was appointed in 1897 Professor of Law in the University of Adelaide, a position which he resigned in 1906 to accept the chair of law in Victoria College. Professor Salmond, besides contributing frequently to the "Law Quarterly Review," published in 1891 "Essays in Jurisprudence and Legal History," in 1894 "First Principles of Jurisprudence," and in 1902 "Jurisprudence, or The Theory of the Law."page 43 page 44
