On The Passing Of My Friend, Dick Wellman, Paul M. Kurtz

Scholarly Works

Writing the introduction to a symposium in memory of a friend is a great honor, of course, and one that I seized immediately, for fear that the Editor in Chief might change his mind.

Herbert Hart Elucidated, A. W. Brian Simpson May 2006

Herbert Hart Elucidated, A. W. Brian Simpson

Michigan Law Review

There are a number of good biographies of judges, but very few of individual legal academics; indeed, so far as American legal academics are concerned, the only one of note that comes to mind is William Twining's life of Karl Llewellyn. Llewellyn was, of course, a major figure in the evolution of American law, and his unusual life was a further advantage for his biographer. In this biography, Nicola Lace has taken as her subject an English academic who also had an unusual career, one whose contribution was principally not to the evolution of the English legal system but ...

From The Dean, Lauren K. Robel

Lauren Robel (2002 Acting; 2003-2011)

This Bill of Particulars provides a window to some of the exciting changes at Indiana Law since the adoption of our Strategic Plan. The plan calls for Indiana Law to be a "highly visible and influential law school whose faculty, students, and graduates advance knowledge, justice, and the public good in the state, in the nation, and around the world." We chose three strategies for achieving that vision: enhancing our community of engaged, influential scholars; communicating our ideas more effectively to influence debate in the academy, the profession, and the wider world; and educating our students for the demands of ...

Michigan's First Woman Lawyer: Sarah Killgore Wertman, Margaret A. Leary Mar 2006

Michigan's First Woman Lawyer: Sarah Killgore Wertman, Margaret A. Leary

Articles

Sarah Killgore Wertman was the first woman in the country to both graduate from law school and be admitted to the bar. Thus, she was Michigan's first woman lawyer in two senses: She was the first woman to graduate from the University of Michigan Law School, and the first woman admitted to the Michigan bar. Others preceded her in entering law school, graduating from law school, or being admitted to the bar, but she was the first to accomplish all three. Her story illustrates much about the early days of women in legal education and the practice of law ...

Dick Wellman -- A Personal Remembrance, Lawrence W. Waggoner Jan 2006

Dick Wellman -- A Personal Remembrance, Lawrence W. Waggoner

Articles

Dick Wellman was my teacher, mentor, collaborator, colleague, and friend. My law school class at The University of Michigan Law School voted Dick the most enthusiastic member of the faculty, and he was that. Dick devoted his professional life to teaching and scholarship, as most law professors do, but he had another career: Dick was a key player in the Uniform Law Conference,' an organization dedicated to improving private law and promoting legislative uniformity among the states.2

Wiley Rutledge, Executive Detention, And Judicial Conscience At War, Craig Green Jan 2006

Wiley Rutledge, Executive Detention, And Judicial Conscience At War, Craig Green

Washington University Law Review

John Ferren’s Salt of the Earth, Conscience of the Court is the first full biography of Rutledge, and the book not only lifts Rutledge from obscurity’s shadow; it also dispels any “limbo” surrounding the Court he served. Part I of this Article offers a brief biographical sketch showing that Rutledge deserves that much. His pre-judicial life as dean, legal reformer, and advocate of progressive politics provides context for his work on the bench. Also, Rutledge’s tale illuminates broader issues, including FDR’s transformative judicial appointments, early twentieth-century legal education, and the New Deal’s influence on both ...
