Letter of Recommendation -- Seymour J. Rubin, Esq. -- 1985 -- LL.M. Program

July 15, 1985

To Whom It May Concern:

Mr. Gary Freedman was a student of mine in the LL.M. program at American University Law School, attaining his LL.M. degree in December 1984.

Mr. Freedman was a first-class participant in my seminar, and wrote an excellent term paper for me. He showed remarkable research capabilities and, extraordinary in today's students, showed a capacity for writing concise, clear, and elegant English. Combined with a very good capacity for analysis, and with superior work hapits and personality, this makes him, in my opinion, an excellent candidate for a position in the field of law.

I may add that my own experience, and hence my judgment, is based on many years in the private practice of law, in government, and in the teaching of law.

Professor Rubin had been a student of Harvard law professor Felix Frankfurter, before Frankfurter was named to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Franklin Roosevelt.
