Sir Frederick Pollock (1845–1937) was educated at Eton before going to Trinity College, Cambridge. He was admitted to the bar in 1871 and to the Privy Council in 1911. He taught at the University of Oxford from 1883 to 1903, where he was a Fellow of Corpus Christi College. Pollock wrote The Law of Torts and The Principles of Contract and served as editor of the Law Quarterly Review and editor-in-chief of the Law Reports, the volumes in which decisions of the English courts were published.
