Thirty Years of Legal Education

A generation of law students has moved through the University of Michigan Law Quadrangle since its dedication on June 13, 1934. The prophecy quoted above has been fulfilled, although the process of its fulfillment has not ended and will not end, for the process of law is indeed “an endless ‘becoming.’ ” Despite the difficulties of carving segments from that which is essentially continuous and unbroken, it seems appropriate to pause at this thirtieth anniversary of the Quadrangle and to observe the segment of time which separates the dedication and the present day.
