A memory submitted by Christine Karol Roberts, Class of 1985

Although my practice now emphasizes intellectual property law, Professor William Powers was my Torts professor in my first year at SMU Dedman School of Law. He made the subject of Torts come alive. I can recall, as if it was 1982 and I was back in the lecture hall at SMU Law, Professor Powers’ lecture on the eggshell skull rule. His lecture was both informative and interesting, as was each and every lecture he gave to our first year class.

Thanks for the memories now Dean Powers for helping to insure that my law school experience at SMU Law was interesting and worthwhile.
