According to the Law Journal in 1932, `No present-day figure on the Bench is of greater interest than Mr Justice McCardie'. A High Court Judge from 1916 to 1933, no twentieth-century judge was more conspicuous or controversial. To his critics, he was a `rogue judge' whose headline-hitting pronouncements often angered his fellow judges, called down the ire of the Churches, provoked calls in Parliament for his removal and earned a public rebuke from the Prime Minister. To his admirers, he was `a Crusader on the Bench', a pioneer who denounced outdated laws, strove to make the law meet the needs of modern society and boldly championed women's causes, birth control and abortion. The Law Quarterly Review described him as `one of the most interesting men in the history of the English Bench.'
