Remarks Delivered at the Dedication of a New Building at Brooklyn Law School, 61 Brooklyn Law Review 340, 341 (1995)


Thank you Joan, David, friends of Brooklyn Law School. It's wonderful for me to be here, to see colleagues from the Second Circuit, and from the Yale Law School, former students—some now on the New York Court of Appeals, a nephew and a niece, classmates, and all sorts of friends, of mine and of the school; here at a great event, a great occasion. The building is magnificent. The building is magnificent. But as someone said of a great, new library: "Do not call the building, the library. The library is inside." So this is not the Brooklyn Law School, wonderful as the building is; Brooklyn Law School is inside. It is all of you. It is all of you who have come through here, all of you who will go through here.
