Arthur Warren Samuels
Arthur Warren Samuels (19 May 1852 – 11 May 1925) was an Irish Unionist Alliance Member of Parliament (MP) in the United Kingdom Parliament and subsequently a Judge. The Irish Unionists were the Irish wing of the Conservative Party.
He was MP for Dublin University 1917-1919, having previously been defeated in a 1903 by-election for the same constituency.
Samuels left the House of Commons when he was appointed to the office of Justice of the King's Bench Division of the Irish High Court in 1919, an office which he held until 1925. Maurice Healy in The Old Munster Circuit praised his personal qualities, his erudition and his valuable book on the financial aspects of Home Rule; but as a Law Officer and judge dismissed him as "undistinguished" .
