Lehan K. Tunks, then Dean of Rutgers Law School in Newark, chaired an Association of American Law Schools Committee on Law School Administration and University Relations that conducted "an inquiry into the adequacy and mobilization of the financial and human resources in American law schools for research and education for the legal profession...." The study, begun in 1955, resulted in a 1961 report, Anatomy of Modern Legal Education, examining the 1956-57 operation of the 129 law schools then on the American Bar Association's approved list. A 146-page questionnaire answered by the dean of each school and a shorter questionnaire answered by specially-created faculty committees at each school provided the basic data.
