Advice for Junior Scholars
Posted by Gordon Smith

From the great Willard Hurst via Stewart Macaulay:

[Willard] was the ideal mentor for many of us. Over lunch or in a meeting in his office, beginners would get the Willard treatment. We were told that we should plan a career and think in terms of five to ten year projects if not more; we should not waste time responding eclectically to the latest appellate decision or big event in the New York Times.

Stewart will be visiting us here at BYU this week, giving a talk inspired in part by Christine. As luck would have it, I am just finishing up an essay on the legal precursors of transaction cost economics that has caused me to do a bit of digging into Willard Hurst's work. What a joy he was to read!
