The thesis presents a social history of the development of solicitors as a professional\ud group in Manchester during the period 1800-1914. This is the first work on the\ud history of Manchester solicitors and one of the few histories of the profession outside\ud London. It is based on primary source material which has not previously been\ud subject to investigation. The study explores the development of solicitors through\ud the period by examining their reaction to the pressures imposed by an increasingly\ud industrial and urbanizing society. It considers the importance of the role of\ud provincial solicitors in the development of the profession nationally and the part\ud Manchester solicitors played in this development. The relationship between Manchester\ud solicitors and the community and their place in the local societal structure is\ud also examined.
