Malcolm Muir: A Pioneer in the Efficient Administration of Justice documents the inspiring and impressive life of Malcolm Muir, who served for over forty years as a United States District Judge in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Through extensive recollections and comments by Judge Muir, as well as comments and observation by numerous lawyers, staff, friends and family members, Judge Muir's groundbreaking reforms in civil and criminal procedure are chronicled, as are his achievements as a lawyer in private practice and a leader in the Lycoming Law Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
