Ernest - Gustav Lorenzen, 60 Yale Law Journal 579 (1951)


My acquaintance with Ernest Lorenzen began in 1916. He was then still under forty years of age; but he had already established himself in the law teaching profession as an accomplished legal scholar and teacher. He had come to this country from northern Germany in his teens. Without doubt his early instruction had already impressed upon him some of the best elements of German education-its thoroughness and industry and completeness of detail. After doing his college work in this country, he returned to France and Germany for graduate work and for his doctor's degree in law. The result was that he had something that was individual and valuable to give to an American law faculty and to American law students.
