Abstract

It was wonderful to learn with Robert Cover. Yet Bob Cover did not stand out as a teacher in the classic scene. He was hardly a dazzling orator; he did not adopt the entertainer's role for his audience, nor did his classroom zing with the tension of the so-called Socratic method done well. His classes and even his style on the lecture platform mirrored his probing, open-minded, everyday conversations. In those conversations, Bob Cover turned everyone – family, children, law students, friends, workers, and other scholars – into his fellow students
