In the 1980s, the NYU law school was pioneering a quiet revolution in legal education. Anthony Amsterdam, legendary both as a litigator and as a legal scholar, was leading the best clinical program in United States legal education and beginning to expand the use of experiential learning throughout the law school curriculum.

Jerry was the perfect tutor for legal educators trying to develop—and to share with students—a sophistication about how law is practiced, made, and used.
