Message from University of Dayton President Father Raymond A. Roesch, S.M.: So many pleasant emotions are connected with publication of this first issue of the Law Review. Perhaps foremost is pride in the rapid progress of the Law School since its rebirth in August of 1974. There were some who predicted at that time that history would repeat itself: as the original Law School was forced to close during the Great Depression, so might this venture fail in the face of unprecedented inflationary economic conditions. Happily, the pessimists have so far proven incorrect. And while the challenges inherent in every new beginning have not been absent from this one, the publication before me represents only encouragement. To be able to have in one's hand, less than two years after the Law School's doors reopened, physical proof that the University of Dayton is once again generating high-calibre legal education, is a source of satisfaction such as is seldom enjoyed.
Roesch, Raymond A. S.M.
