“N.Y.U. has an extraordinary and unique role in American legal education,” Law said recently in her office, which is decorated with samples from her collection of homemade quilts. “We’ve been ahead of everyone in welcoming women and blacks to law schools and to the profession.”Everyone? Here are the University of Wisconsin Law School's milestones:
1st African-American student, Charles Noland, 1875So would you please take that back, Professor Law?
1st Woman graduate, Belle Case LaFollette, 1885
1st African-American graduate, William Green, 1892
ADDED: Nothing against N.Y.U. School of Law. It's my alma mater. I owe those folks a lot. They let me in, despite my appallingly inadequate background.
