Tribute To John Pickering, Evan H. Caminker Jan 2005

Tribute To John Pickering, Evan H. Caminker

Other Publications

I had the great fortune to work with John Pickering during my own stint as a young associate at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering. One of my first projects at the firm was to assist John in writing an amicus brief in the landmark right-to-die case involving Nancy Cruzan. Learning to draft a Supreme Court brief from such a master advocate was a memorable experience. Of course, John taught me a great deal about first-rate brief writing, but much more significantly, he illustrated by example the possibility and importance of marrying reason with passion, and of dedicating one's energy and talents ...

Focus On Faculty, William I. Miller

Other Publications

Of late my interests, by free association and devious paths, have shifted to the emotions, especially those passions that accompany our moral and social failures.


Focus On Faculty - Rebecca S. Eisenberg, Rebecca S. Eisenberg Jan 1998

Focus On Faculty - Rebecca S. Eisenberg, Rebecca S. Eisenberg

Other Publications

As a teenager, I had a passion for studying foreign languages. I loved immersing myself in an unfamiliar idiom, struggling to make sense of another system for parsing words and sentences to describe experiences and observations. I reveled in subtle differences in the meaning of words that were sometimes, but not always, equivalents in translation. Most intriguing of all were the occasional insights I gained into the limitations of my own language when I recognized that a foreign locution simply has no English equivalent.

On Retiring From A Deanship, John W. Reed Jan 1992

On Retiring From A Deanship, John W. Reed

Other Publications

The reason for the italicized "from" in the title of my remarks is to distinguish it from the comments that I made at our meeting in Tucson four years ago, under the title "On Retiring to a Deanship." For those of you who were not there, I should mention that five years ago, as I was about to reach retirement age at the University of Michigan Law School-what the late William L. Prosser used to call the age of mandatory senility-Wayne State University in Detroit asked me to serve as its dean for a term of five years. Lobbied by ...


Wade H. Mccree, Jr., David L. Chambers Jan 1988

Wade H. Mccree, Jr., David L. Chambers

Other Publications

At Wade McCree's funeral service in Detroit, Otis Smith introduced the many people who spoke. Mr. Smith reminded us that, when Wade ceased to be Solicitor General, he had many offers from law firms in Washington and New York. Wade, he said, turned the offers down and chose to remain in public service. When Mr. Smith made this statement, my first thought was, "Wade didn't stay in public service. He became a law professor." After all, for so many of us teachers, life is a wonderful self-indulgence, the opportunity to read and write just what we please. But ...


On Retirement To A Deanship, John W. Reed Jan 1988

On Retirement To A Deanship, John W. Reed

Other Publications

As most of you know, I have been a teacher for more than forty years. I entered teaching at Oklahoma after four years with the Stinson Mag firm in Kansas City, and I have been on the University of Michigan faculty since 1949 except for a four-year aberration as dean at the University of Colorado Law School in the mid-1960s. As you would suppose, I am reaching the mandatory retirement age. (That's what the late Dean William L. Prosser called the "age of statutory senility.") The current year would have been my final year of teaching at the University ...


Alfred F. Conard And Allan F. Smith, Terrance Sandalow Jan 1981

Alfred F. Conard And Allan F. Smith, Terrance Sandalow

Other Publications

I am delighted to be able to participate in honoring Al Conard and Allan Smith, but I confess that I am puzzled as to why I have been invited to speak. I have not had either as a teacher. Moreover, their scholarly contributions are sufficiently removed from my areas of interest that I cannot evaluate the importance of their work. Nor was I in a good position to observe Allan's service as Dean or as Vice President for Academic Affairs.


The Anatomy Of A Clinical Law Course, James J. White Jan 1970

The Anatomy Of A Clinical Law Course, James J. White

Other Publications

Since the summer of 1965 when the Michigan Supreme Court first authorized law student practice on the behalf of indigent persons, students at the University of Michigan Law School have been engaged in extensive practice on behalf of indigent persons in Washtenaw County. Between 75 and 125 second and third year students at the University of Michigan Law School each semester have worked at the Washtenaw County Legal Aid Clinic under the direction of the OEO Staff attorneys. Students receive neither credit nor pay for such work and their activities are not directly supervised by the faculty. That volunteer experience ...


Requirements Of A Legal Education, Bradley M. Thompson Jan 1901

Requirements Of A Legal Education, Bradley M. Thompson

Other Publications

The sentiment which has been assigned to me and to which, in a Pickwickian sense, I am to respond, covers the whole field of a lawyer's professional education. It is a subject of special interest to the bar, and of much importance, indeed, to all, for the bar furnishes from its ranks all the members of the judicial department, one of the three co-ordinate departments of the government, whether state or national. And since every member of the bar is a member of the court before whom he practices, we constitute, at least, one third of the government. And ...
