First, I was a law student for three years. Then I became a student of law for 37 years. After receiving my J.D. from Boston University in 1974, I began the second phase of my legal education by practicing law—a quest that both challenges and rewards.

A true legal education never stops—the raw knowledge and skills that a lawyer acquires in law school get tested, refined and absorbed in the process of practicing law. The ultimate goal is the wisdom and skill in the effective use of the law in the real world, which are acquired only through experience and a continuation of the learning process.
