It was 1990 when a third-year student, who had rocketed to the top at Harvard Law School, presided over a rally. He was a man making a mark.
"Well I had had about 5,000 law students by the time I met Barack Obama, the most impressive student I'd ever worked with," said Laurence Tribe, professor of constitutional law at Harvard Law School. "And now that I've had another 5,000 in the years since, so that remains true. I wrote his name on my desk calendar, which I don't very often do."
