Thirty-six years ago (September, 1903) as Dean Bates was taking up law teaching as Tappan Professor of Law at Michigan, I was delivering an inaugural lecture as Dean of the Law School of the University of Nebraska. In this generation of law teaching we have seen the academic law school rise to a commanding position in professional education, the law teacher gain a position among the leaders of the profession, the growth of co-operation between bar associations and the association of law teachers, the development of co-operation between bar examiners and the law schools, and general adoption by the profession of the views of law teachers as to the preliminary education to be required of those entering upon the study of law. Taking the country as a whole, much more progress was made in legal education in that generation than had been made in the two which preceded it.
