"Defining Justice" became a standard textbook in most law schools in America, because it was thought important that the students should understand the essence of what made a lawyer.

On the day it's remaining author Miles Edgeworth passed away, he was set beside Phoenix Wright, co-author of the book, in deference to his wishes. It was said that when he was laid beside him, not a single cloud was in the sky, and that Miles looked as if he was smiling up at the spring sun.

During spring, it was also said that if the weather was good, you can see them both sitting on the benches outside the courthouse that they served for most of their lives – two unaging attorneys, laughing and talking silently as the rest of the world pass by.
