The Shareholders's Appraisal Remedy: An Essay For Frank Coker, Bayless Manning Jan 1962

The Shareholders's Appraisal Remedy: An Essay For Frank Coker, Bayless Manning

Faculty Scholarship Series

A DEAN of my acquaintance is fond of saying that every law school course
should be a course in jurisprudence. No one ever put this precept into practice
more fully than Frank Coker.
Somehow, as our mutual colleague Leon Lipson once observed, Frank's
jurisprudence rode unusually close to the surface. Between his most specific
statement and the most general philosophic premises underlying the statement
there was a minimum of intermediate steps. And the few connecting links
required were made to seem simple, even apparent. Frank's mind was elegant,
in the sense that a great mathematical proof is elegant.
