Monroe Freedman: Friend, Role Model, And Colleague
I had the privilege of being Monroe Freedman’s colleague at Hofstra for nearly twenty years and remained his friend after I left. He was an extraordinary colleague, a loyal friend, and a professional role model. Indeed, Monroe’s presence at Hofstra was an important reason that I moved from Washington University in St. Louis to Hofstra in 1992. He was already a role model for me then, even though I had met him only briefly in person. His passion, his principles, and his prolific output in the field of legal ethics were legendary in the field long before I even became a professor. The opportunity to work with a legend does not come along often. Coming to Hofstra to work with him was a great decision, and I treasure all of the time I spent with him.
