For a man who didn’t have a law degree, the late U.S. Rep. John Lewis appeared a lot in a newspaper focused on the legal profession. My records show he was in the Daily Report more than 200 times.

Each of those moments—commenting on a legal issue or, often, being honored by a legal organization—-reflects his importance to the law he shaped through heroic deeds during the civil rights movement and decades as a lawmaker in Washington.
