Professor J. Williams.
On the retirement of Prof. Cornish, Prof. Williams was appointed as Professor of English and New Zealand Law. A distinguished scholar of Auckland University College, he took a Travelling Scholarship in Law in 1930, and on going to Cambridge carried out research on "Section Four of the Statute of Frauds" for a Ph.D. thesis. The result of this research has been published in book form and acclaimed as an authority by the legal press. Before taking up his present position Prof. Williams was practising as a barrister in Auckland.
