Payne Collier, Campbell analyzes legal allusions in a number of Shakespeare's plays and sonnets, as well as providing commentary on the text of Shakespeare's will. Lord Macauley apparently was persuaded by Campbell's work that Shakespeare had once labored in an attorney's office, but this contention is considered very doubtful by many. Holdsworth 15: 415.
