Remembering Two Legends in Law
New York, September 12, 2013—This past summer marked the 75th and 65th anniversaries of the deaths of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo and Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes. Cardozo and Hughes are two of the most highly respected and influential individuals ever to study at Columbia Law School. In this touching essay first published in the email newsletter the “Jackson List,” legal scholar John Q. Barrett examines the impact Cardozo and Hughes had on the lives of generations of lawyers and the law.
