Dean Lockhart, The Man., Yale Kamisar, Jesse H. Choper Jan 1972

Dean Lockhart, The Man., Yale Kamisar, Jesse H. Choper

Articles

Bill Lockhart is truly an extraordinary man, not because his achievements have been so numerous and diverse - though they have - and not because his accomplishments carry a distinct mark of excellence and eminence - though they do. He is unusual because he is that combination of multiple gifts and powers rarely coalesced in a single human being. And we have spoken merely of the professional man; only those familiar with Bill's deep devotion to his family and heroic dedication to his church can fully comprehend how remarkable a person he is.


Mr. Justice Powell And The Emerging Nixon Majority, A.E. Dick Howard Jan 1972

Mr. Justice Powell And The Emerging Nixon Majority, A.E. Dick Howard

Michigan Law Review

In recent years, we have come to expect the debate over Supreme Court nominations to reflect ideological passions in the Government and the country at large; the Fortas, Haynsworth, and Carswell cases remain fresh in memory. In the hearings on the nominations of Lewis F. Powell, Jr., and William H. Rehnquist to the Court, Senate Democratic liberals made clear their intention to probe not only the nominees' integrity and legal qualifications, but also their judicial philosophies. It was ironic, therefore, to watch as liberal members of the Judiciary Committee, through their questions and comments at the confirmation hearings, made Powell ...

Jefferson B. Fordham: His Contribution To Local Government Law, Terrance Sandalow Jan 1970

Jefferson B. Fordham: His Contribution To Local Government Law, Terrance Sandalow

Articles

The study of local government has not, by and large, attracted and held the interest of the ablest minds in the legal profession. Much of the same has been true within economics and political science, the social sciences from which lawyers might have anticipated most assistance in designing legal institutions to cope with the problems of an urban nation. Lawyers who have come to the area during the past decade have not, in consequence, had the advantages of a strong intellectual tradition upon which to build in the effort to understand and to come to grips with current problems.

Willard Titus Barbour, Ralph W. Aigler Jan 1920

Willard Titus Barbour, Ralph W. Aigler

Articles

Legal scholarship in America suffered a grievous loss in the death of Willard T. Barbour, Charles F. Southmayd Professor of Law in the Yale Law School on March 2, 1920. Indeed it is not too much to say that his loss will be felt wherever the English Common Law holds its sway, for he had dipped deep into the obscured origins of Equity Jurisdiction during his study at Oxford and in London, and was but at the beginning of a series of studies and lectures which would ultimately have developed into a comprehensive book, throwing light not only upon the ...


James Barr Ames, James H. Brewster Jan 1910

James Barr Ames, James H. Brewster

Articles

Hardly shall one name another American lawyer whose death would be as widely felt as will be that of James Barr Ames. He passed away on January eighth in the sixty-fourth year of his age.


President Harry Burns Hutchins, Edwin C. Goddard Jan 1910

President Harry Burns Hutchins, Edwin C. Goddard

Articles

No more striking proof of perfect confidence and high regard could be afforded than the unanimous sense of relief with which the news of the appointment of Harry Burns Hutchins as permanent President of the University was welcomed by his colleagues of all Departments, with whom he had for so many years been closely associated. Verily, he is not one without honor in his own country.

Articles

The important changes in the administrative force of the University this year have been of especial significance to the Law Department.

James Valentine Campbell, Victor H. Lane

Articles

Thomas Mcintyre Cooley, Jerome C. Knowlton Jan 1907

Thomas Mcintyre Cooley, Jerome C. Knowlton

Articles

In the early fifties, there were four young men practicing at the bar of the State of Michigan who became so influential during the formative period in the jurisprudence of the state that we cannot name one of them without thinking of the others. James V. Campbell, Isaac P. Christiancy, Thomas M. Cooley and Benjamin F. Graves came from New York parentage and from New England stock. The three last named received their education in the primary schools and academies of New York. As young men seeking their future they came west and settled in different parts of this state ...


Thomas Mcintyre Cooley, Harry B. Hutchins Jan 1906

Thomas Mcintyre Cooley, Harry B. Hutchins

Articles

The Department of Law of the University was opened in the fall of 1859. The wisdom of the step was doubted by many, and it cannot be said to have had the hearty support of the profession of the State. Systematic legal education through the instrumentality of formal instruction was in its infancy. It was practically unknown in the west, for outside of New England and New York there was at the time no law school of standing and influence. The profession generally, the country over, had little sympathy with any method of training for the bar excepting the historic ...


Justice William Rufus Day, Harry B. Hutchins Jan 1903

Justice William Rufus Day, Harry B. Hutchins

Articles

The University of Michigan , when measured by the standard of public services rendered by its graduates, must certainly be accorded an honorable rank. For a quarter of a century the number of its alumni occupying high official station has been large. The list includes state executives, judges of state courts of last resort, senators and representatives in the national congress, cabinet officers, and members of important commissions raised by the general government for international and executive purposes. The character of the services has in some cases been conspicuous for its excellence and in all cases such as to bring honor ...
