Educated at Harvard College, Carter graduated in 1850 and then studied law at Harvard Law School until 1853. He then joined the newly formed law firm of Davies & Scudder as managing clerk. He was admitted to the New York bar and became a highly skilled and sought after lawyer. He helped to organize the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and served as its president for five terms. In 1875, he was appointed by the governor to a commission to devise a plan of government for New York State. He was the president of the National Municipal League for nine years and from 1894 to 1895 served as president of the American Bar Association. Carter was a firm believer in restraints on legislative powers and argued a number of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. After his retirement, Carter continued to write and lecture until his death. His main works include Proposed Codification of Our Common Law (1884), The Ideal and the Actual in the Law (1890), Fur-Seal Arbitration (1893) and Law: Its Origin, Growth and Function (1907 Posthumous).
