Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


Testimony of Professor Alfred F. Conard before the New York Joint Legislative Committee on Insurance Rates and Regulations.

Almost twenty-five years ago I was engaged in a conversation with Judge Vanderbilt, the Dean and rebuilder of the New York University Law School, and I asked him why anyone should put up with the indignity of living in New York or fighting the commuter's battle in and out of it each work-day. He said, "It simply depends upon whether or not you want to operate in the intellectual capital of the world." Although I am reluctant to concede you this distinction, the report on automobile insurance submitted to Governor Rockefeller by Superintendent Richard E. Stewart reaffirms the leadership of New York in public policy formulation.
