Hall, Sir Edward Marshall

Hall, Sir Edward Marshall (1858–1929). Hall was one of the greatest English advocates and a legend in his own time and since. He enjoyed, at the height of his powers, the sort of reputation and glamour in the eyes of the public later enjoyed by actors and film stars. His most famous cases were criminal trials, such as the trial of Marie Hermann in 1894, where, as was frequently the case, he obtained an acquittal for his client by his eloquence, his striking presence and voice, and his magnetic personality. It has been suggested that his knowledge of law was poor and he was frequently criticized by judges, but his success, especially as counsel for the defence, was undeniable.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
