Thomas M. Cooley was one of the three members of the first faculty of the University of Michigan Law School, when it was organized in 1859. In 1864 he became a justice of the Supreme Court of Mi~igan, and held that office until 1885, continuing also as a member of the Law Faculty. In 1871 he became Dean of the Law School. In addition to his duties on the bench and in the class room, he made many important contributions to legal literature. His treatises on "Constitutional Limitations" and on "Torts" were among the legal classics of his day and were known and read throughout the United States. At the time of his death in 1898, it may fairly be said that he was the most distinguished legal scholar that the State o~ Michigan had produced.

For the purpose of stimulating research and presenting its results in the form of public lectures, the faculty of the University of Michigan Law School established the Thomas M. Cooley Lectureship in honor of its first great legal scholar. This was made possible through the William W. Cook Endowment for Legal Research.
