BOLD AMBITIONS
Three Tributes:
The Giants, in Retrospect
Bob Gorman
For more than three decades, Bob Gorman taught Copyright and Labor Law to admiring students. He anticipated the importance of Intellectual Property as a field of law. But most important, Bob became partners with his students in the great enterprise of the law. He stimulated students’ interest with a glint and brought weighty subjects down to earth, for which they remain grateful.


It is probably true that great teachers never understand the impact they have on their students. We leave the class and move on to the next year, to other assignments and job interviews, then we graduate to the stuff of life in general. We don’t often go back to tell a teacher how much he meant, and in fact, let me suggest that we can’t understand, at such a young place in our lives, the importance of a single teacher.
