Follow the 38-year legal battle to secure educational opportunity for African-Americans in Tennessee's public colleges and universities, in this issue. Written by the mediator and court's monitor in the case, this explains all the twists, turns and intrigue of the famous Geier case. TBA President Lucian T. Pera explains what he sees as a market failure for lawyers as well as what the solutions could be. Tennessee's 1865 Constitution and "the return of civil government" is examined, and a novel about a pirate is reviewed. Columnists cover trusts, the phases of banking law — and the bankruptcy of Toys 'R' Us.
