I knew Al Rubin from the time I came to Chicago to become a
member of the faculty at the Law School of the University of Chicago
and Executive Director of the American Bar Foundation. Our acquaintance
arose from some undertaking or another of the. American Bar
Association, probably the project for the Code of Professional Responsibility.
At the time, as I recall, AI was still a practicing lawyer,
or had recently been appointed as United States District Judge. He was
also a lecturer at the Law School at LSU. In any event, he came across,
as he then and everafter was, as a complete man of the law-learned,
reflective, tough-minded, practical, and deeply concerned with the wellbeing
of the community in which he lived. Would that all of us in the
profession lived up to his example.
