KU law professor receives third law degree from KU
Hopkins, who turns 76 next month, got his second law degree just a couple years after receiving his first, in the early 70s.
He’s been a nonprofit lawyer his entire career, so he went back for a couple credits in tax law—and ended up getting a second degree. Hopkins says he never needed the extra second or third degrees. For him it was just the love of the law and accomplishing something.
