Are You Still in Touch With Any of Your Law Professors?

ABA JournalABA Journal Question of the Week:  Are You Still in Touch With Any of Your Law Professors?:

It's graduation season, so you might find yourself attending one soon–or graduating yourself! So this week, we'd like to ask you: Are you still in touch with any of your law school professors? If so, have they continued to be of help to you as you advanced in your law career? If you are only just now graduating, do you at this point intend to try to stay in touch with any of your law professors? Please feel free to share your memories of onetime law professors who haven't left your life.

I'm no longer in touch with either Prof. E. Allan Farnsworth or Prof. Telford Taylor from Columbia Law School, both of whom are now deceased. But they remain in touch with me because I read their books!

Our law professor Jerry Hesch, from FIU Law School in Miami Florida, has not only been instrumental in providing us with a terrific education in law school but has continued to go above and beyond to guide and inspire us in our practice. We are so honored to have him as both a mentor and a friend.

It is not surprising at all to read the foregoing comments about Jerry Hesch. Not only was he a remarkable professor (the University of Miami), but he has continued to be an absolutely wonderful resource and terrific mentor. I am always amazed at the enormous effort Jerry makes to provide ongoing guidance—and often at his own initiative. Whether it be sitting at lunch for a few hours discussing ideas or forwarding articles of interest, Jerry routinely displays a sincere interest in the development of his students. In sum, like many others, I am honored and consider myself quite fortunate to have Jerry as a resource and mentor.
