This paper will seek to document the life and political and legal writings of H V Evatt. As will, indeed, be shown Evatt certainly was an extraordinary personality with a significant intellect and a prodigious energy. His failings were not so much on an intellectual or academic front, but rather, ones that emanated from his interpersonal relationships with others. In this respect, his character presents somewhat of an enigma or paradox. Nevertheless, it is hoped that this review will highlight Evatt’s extraordinary political and legal achievements and reinstate him in the pantheon of such great jurists as Sir Owen Dixon and (such) Labor politicians as John Curtin and Benedict Chifley.
