59 Notre Dame L. Rev. [xix] (1983-1984)


In this article, Dean David Link responds to the Notre Dame Law School Law Review’s inquiry about Dean Joseph O’Meara’s effect on individuals. Dean Link states that Dean O’Meara’s philosophy of the law was simple: he expected everyone in the legal profession to be a fierce partisan for justice. A lawyer’s responsibility to justice transcends his or her responsibilities toward any particular client or case or system. Dean Link states that Notre Dame’s movement from a great teaching law school to a great teaching and research institution is owed primarily to Dean O’Meara, the man who would settle for nothing less.
