Sir Edward Coke [1552-1643] was considered to be the greatest legal practitioner of his day. He is known for writing Law Reports, also referred to as Coke's Reports. They were an archive of law reports of cases he contributed in, watched, or was familiar with. They started with the notes he made as a law student in 1572. He started fully reporting cases in October 1579. Coke never officially published his entire Reports during his lifetime. Select cases were published in 1600. Coke's challenge to the ecclesiastical courts is seen as the origin to the right to silence.
