Without Precedent

This chapter describes how Susie Sharp's formal legal training at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Law outstripped not only her father's legal education but also that of the vast majority of practicing lawyers in the state. Her arrival in Chapel Hill coincided with fundamental changes taking place in legal education in general and at the UNC law school in particular. These changes, which were related to the emergence of the New South as an increasingly integral part of the nation as a whole, were reflected in every aspect of the law school experience, from admission requirements to teaching methods and curriculum to graduation requirements. When Susie entered the UNC as a first-year law student, she was right on the cusp of the school's transformation from a clubby bar-review factory to a modern law school. She was one of the very first to graduate with what today would be considered a proper legal education.
