In 1966 Dean Emeritus Lehan K. Tunks lured Bob Hunt from private practice to join the faculty of the University of Washington School of Law. Bob came with impressive academic credentials and a rich array of experiences in private practice and academe. He graduated with honors from Oberlin College and was appointed a Francis Parkman Fellow in American History at Harvard University, where he earned a masters degree. Following World War II, Bob studied law at Yale University, from which he received an LL.B. in 1947. From 1947 to 1949, he was a member of the faculty of law at the University of Iowa. Bob later studied under a Rockefeller Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, from which he received a Doctor of Juridical Science degree in 1952. In the fall of 1950, he entered practice with the Chicago, Illinois firm of Schiff, Hardin, Waite, Dorschel & Britton, becoming a partner in 1957.
