Washington Law Review


What follows are some observations about Lee Tunks, formed during my several years of assisting him with deaning duties at the Law School, and during the years since when we have been faculty colleagues and friends. I always think of Lee as a law school dean. Perhaps that is because he was a dean when I first met him. Perhaps it is because what I really know about deans and deaning I learned first from him. Whatever the cause, he seems to me to be one of those people destined to be a law school dean. I have known many fine deans since those days, but most feel the job is one they didn't plan on having and one they will someday (hopefully soon) be well rid of. By contrast, Lee Tunks seemed to the manor born.
