About the author (2002)

John Chipman Gray, 1839-1915, was an American lawyer and law professor. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1861, served in the Civil War and then entered into the practice of law in Boston. In 1869, he began teaching at Harvard Law School and he continued both practice and teaching until the last years of his life. He was a leading advocate of the case system of teaching law and was a recognized authority both in the United States and England on the law of real property. His law firm, Ropes & Gray, is one of the largest, is not the largest, in Boston today.
