Emory Law Journal


I first came to know Randolph Thrower when I returned as a student to the Emory University School of Law after World War II and enrolled my senior year in an advanced Tax Problems course Randolph taught as a part-time adjunct professor. Instead of studying court opinions on particular legal issues¿which had been the traditional method of teaching law since its introduction at Harvard in the nineteenth century¿Randy gave us, each time we met, a set of questions raised by a theoretical client on which we were to identify potential tax problems and advise the client what he should do. This, of course, is just what tax lawyers are called to do in real life, and I have always thought that this was the best course I ever had in law school.
