In the autumn of 1964, when I arrived at the law school to begin the
first, most important, year of my teaching life, I was thoroughly and
profoundly ignorant. Not just deeply uninformed about "the law"; I
was that, of course, but that's easily curable: you just work at it as you
go, and after a while you know enough of your subject to handle it
before people who, after all, know nothing about it at all.
