Law School's Law Quadrangle Notes

Gerald M. Rosberg, a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, clerked for a pair of distinguished judges before joining the U-M faculty. He served under Chief Judge David L. Bazelon of the U.S. Circuit court of Appeals for the District of Columbia during 1971-72. The following year he clerked for Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. of the U.S. Supreme Court.

At the conclusion of the Supreme Court term in July 1973, Rosberg and his wife departed for Europe, where they traveled for almost a year. Rosberg was associated briefly with the firm of Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., before coming to Ann Arbor this fall.

Rosberg, who was also a Supreme Court notes editor for the Harvard Law Review, teaches courses in civil procedure and conflicts.
