about

This book is the authors account of his four years as dean of the School of Law at the University of Alabama from 1966 to 1970. Those were transformative years, bridging the Law School of the past to the Law School of the future. Working on the premise that this institution was a crucial training ground for the states future legal and political leadership, the author, with the backing of university president Frank Rose, moved rapidly to build the school up in every respect—alumni involvement in fund raising, faculty, curriculum, library, and student life. All of these steps are described, along with the challenges presented by entrenched and limited expectations. Both frustrations and successes are discussed. With momentum building toward recognition as an institution of real distinction, a change in the university presidency brought the process to a halt. The book describes the problems the author faced, in the context of their time and place, the steps taken to overcome them, and his dashed hopes in the ultimate denouement. The book concludes with a summary of what turned out to be lasting changes in the school as a result of those four years.
