A dedicated and innovative teacher, a towering intellect, one of the leading criminal lawyers in South Africa, collegial, supportive and empowering, a veritable polymath, the ultimate free-thinker: these are but a few of the appellations used to describe John Milton. Over a period of nearly forty years John Milton has made an immense contribution to the South African legal terrain as a scholar, a legal practitioner, a teacher, a mentor and a friend.   The Exemplary Scholar: Essays in Honour of John Milton is a recognition and celebration of this respected academic and his legacy. The high esteem in which he is held by his peers, former students, colleagues and friends, and the broad scope of his influence are reflected in this collection of essays.   Though known mainly as a criminal lawyer, Milton's interest and influence have extended to property law, statutory interpretation, the administration of justice, delict, environmental law, human rights, legal education and even outside the law to history.   The essays, written by former colleagues, students and others who came under his influence, cover a selection of the areas of law in which he published.
