Terry Gilbert ’73 needs no reminders of his time at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Gilbert has to look no further than his partner Gordon Friedman, who he met while Friedman was a professor at the law school in the early ’70s. Even without that connection, Gilbert credits his time at Cleveland-Marshall as a transformative period that became the foundation for his life as a civil rights and criminal defense lawyer. He recalls the importance of a class boycott that helped shape his future.
