Harry’s Influence, 45 New York Law School Law Review 11 (2001)


Harry Wellington was my teacher in contracts at the Yale Law School. Harry Wellington has been my colleague and friend for more than 40 years. Harry Wellington was my Dean. In all these roles he has been as good as they come, and I am grateful to him for all he has done for me in each of these relationships. Yet, important as every one of these is to me, even more significant is what Harry Wellington, as a scholar, has done for me. I have long thought that Harry was the most thoughtful, subtle, and profound student of legal process of his generation. I do not mean by that to understate the significance of people like Alexander Bickel and Al Sachs. I mean only to say that, for me and for my work and development in this field, no one has been more important than Harry.
