CECIL, HENRY
CECIL, HENRY, pen name of Henry Cecil Leon (1902–1976), English lawyer and author. Born in London, Cecil was a county court judge (1949–67) and wrote serious legal works, but became popular with his lighthearted novels on lawyers and the law. These include such successes as Brothers in Law (1955), made into a motion picture; and Settled Out of Court (1959) and Alibi for a Judge (1960), which were staged in London. As H.C. Leon, he wrote an autobiography, Just Within the Law (1975). -ADD. BIBLIOGRAPHY: ODNB online.
