Remembering Harry Pratter (1917-2002), Samuel Born, Joseph Hays, Sarah Riodan, George P. Smith Ii

Harry Pratter (1976-1977 Acting)

At this year's annual Alumni Weekend, colleagues, family, friends, and former students of the inimitable Professor Harry Pratter, who died in March 2002, gathered to share their recollections of his life and career.

Pratter, who was born in the Ukraine and emigrated to the United States as a child, began teaching at the Law School in 1950, after earning his JD from the University of Chicago. He taught many different subjects, including Commercial Law, Negotiable Instruments, Conflicts of Law, Contracts, Torts, and Family Law. But more fundamentally, "he taught life," according to Professor Fred Aman, longtime dean of the ...

A Lawyer's Calling, Lauren K. Robel Apr 2003

A Lawyer's Calling, Lauren K. Robel

Lauren Robel (2002 Acting; 2003-2011)

The paths that led the current first-year class, the Class of 2005, to the School of Law are as varied as the paths they - like you - will follow after graduation. Students come to law from other professions, from the study of many other disciplines, from communities across the country and around the world - both communities based on proximihJ and those based on affinity. While the study of law presents new vocabularies, skills, and ideas, that study does not require leaving scholarly, professional, and personal histories at the door. Quite the contrary - what makes law a particularly powerful and humane force ...

Justice Byron White And The Importance Of Process, Carl W. Tobias Jan 2003

Justice Byron White And The Importance Of Process, Carl W. Tobias

Law Faculty Publications

Justice Byron White exhibited acute sensitivity to process during his exceptional career on the Supreme Court. This essay affords several illustrations of that characteristic. One was his perceptive account of the Court's responsibility for amending the rules which mainly govern federal district court practice. The second was careful stewardship of a federal appellate court study authorized by Congress after the jurist had resigned. Another was his persistent dissents from denials of petitions for Supreme Court review. These examples relate to the three levels in the federal judicial hierarchy, and demonstrate Justice White's abiding concern for each constituent and ...

Who Was William Marbury?, David F. Forte Jan 2003

Who Was William Marbury?, David F. Forte

Law Faculty Articles and Essays

Of all the disappointed office seekers in American history, only William Marbury has been so honored as to have his portrait hung in the chambers of the United States Supreme Court alongside that of James Madison. The two titular protagonists to the Marbury v. Madison dispute had no idea that their original contretemps would ever find its way to litigation, let alone eventual mythic significance as the foundation stone of judicial review.

David E. Feller: The Happy Warrior, Theodore J. St. Antoine Jan 2003

David E. Feller: The Happy Warrior, Theodore J. St. Antoine

Articles

Dave Feller and I first became acquainted when we were both union lawyers in Washington, D.C. Dave was the ultimate happy warrior. He went joyous into combat, and years later he could recount, joyously, objectively, and without rancor toward old foes, the exact details of the many triumphs and the few defeats. A favorite story came from his Supreme Court clerkship. Dave was already seven years out of Harvard Law School, with experience in university teaching, Army intelligence, and the Justice Department, and he didn't hesitate to tell Chief Justice Vinson he should vote for certiorari in a ...
