Rudolf B. Schlesinger
During his 27-year career at Cornell Law School, Rudolf B. Schlesinger, who held the William Nelson Cromwell Professor of International and Comparative Law endowed chair at Cornell Law School for many years, taught nearly half of the law school’s students. He is known as the “father of comparative law” in American law schools, and both faculty and alumni of the law school have often said that his example and expertise inspired their personal and professional lives.
