Abstract

"A law school does not undertake to teach success.... So I say the business of a law school is not sufficiently described when you merely say that it is to teach law, or to make lawyers. It is to teach law in the grand manner, and to make great lawyers." It was perhaps these words written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes that led an anonymous donor to establish twenty scholarships at New York University Law Center. Mr. Gerhart describes the plan and purpose of the scholarships in this article.
