A Student's Homage: Jerome Micheal, 53 Columbia Law Review 312 (1953)


We are all his students now, and will be through the days to come. Some
of us have been his students for a good many years. It was twenty-two years
ago that I first entered his classroom. The law school generation of which I
was a part was a worried, depressed, depression generation. We were worried
about jobs, which were hard to come by. We were bothered about the
economy outside the classroom that waited for us at the end of our last law
school semester. an economy which seemed cruel and unintelligent and
frightened. Many of us wondered whether in the strenuous pursuit of
bread and butter that loomed ahead of us we could keep a firm grip on the
values of the intellect and the spirit that had led us to choose the profession
of the law.
