Rex Lee had the daunting task of opening a new law school. He carried this burden with minimal experience in legal education. Lee used his gift for making everyone that he met feel like a close friend to recruit an exceptional faculty. An impressive student body followed. The Brigham Young Law School is now a greatly respected institution thanks to the path that Rex Lee paved.
