Law School's Law Quadrangle Notes


As professor of law, Mr. Sanford H. Kadish will take over some of the work in conflict of laws formerly done by Prof. Hessel E. Yntema, now retired. He will also teach criminal law.

Born in New York, Professor Kadish received his legal education at Columbia Law School and was in the private practice of law in New York prior to joining the Utah University law faculty in 1951. He was Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 1957, and during the current year is visiting professor of law at Harvard.

He was a public member of the Regional Wage Stabilization Board from 1951 to 1953, and in 1954 was named chairman of the F.M.C.S. Fact Finding Panel in the Atomic Energy dispute. He is co-author (with Professor Paulsen of Columbia Law School) of a casebook, Criminal Law and the Social Order, to be published this summer.
