Alfred Hill is everything a law professor should be. He has mastered the two areas which are most important for a law teacher's success. These are classroom performance and legal scholarship. Few of us excel in either one of these areas. The fact that Al Hill excels in both makes him truly remarkable. We of the Columbia Law School Faculty are singularly blessed to have had him in our midst for more than twenty years.
Al Hill's excellence as a teacher is best demonstrated by the enthusiastic comments of his students. He has taught many courses; his current assignments being torts, conflict of laws, and federal courts. These are broad and important topics and Al Hill has taught them all with enthusiasm, vivacity, and complete understanding. He also has a keen sense of humor which makes listening to him a particularly pleasant experience. No student known to us has ever been bored by Al's teaching. That is indeed an accomplishment.
