100 Issues of In Brief
This publication marks our 100th issue of In Brief. This year also marks the 125th anniversary of our law school. The following images represent the covers of In Brief throughout its entire history. The first issue began as an eight-page, 4 x 11 inch publication in November 1970. The top story announced the appointment of former Dean Louis A. Toepfer as acting president after Robert W. Morse resigned. The issue also publicized that 1970 “broke all records” for applications, and 213 students, 23 of whom were women, were registered in the first-year class.


We have so much history, we could write a book!

So we did.

Share in the success of alumni and faculty who contribute to the school’s tradition of excellence. Learn the law school story—its brave beginning and significant milestones during more than a century. See how the school is poised for the future, as a national leader in legal education.

This commemorative book is available on for $30.00. All proceeds go to our Annual Fund, which supports student scholarships.
