Founders of Consumer Law Institutions

The death of Father Robert F. Drinan has been widely reported (The New York Times obituary is here.) What is less well known (at least by me, until I read Willard Ogburn's moving tribute) is that while serving as dean of Boston College's law school, he founded the National Consumer Law Center. He also played a part in creating the Legal Services Corporation.

In addition, a new documentary, "An Unreasonable Man," examines the legacy of Ralph Nader. The Times review is here.
