"A Bright Student of the Law," and the beginnings of a promising career…

Even while in Law School at Texas Tech, Paul Enlow's professors recognized him as a solid young thinker who was able to fundamentally grasp the intricacies of Texas Law.

One story in particular highlights this fact.

The former Judge Enlow had always been known as an incisive and critical thinker. On one occasion at the Texas Tech School of Law, a young Paul Enlow has the 'audacity' to question several conclusions asserted in his post graduate textbook.

This is an old story - one of the headstrong student, bent on righting every wrong and challenging every assertion, only to find in the end that the elder spoke truth and the "wrongs" not in need of righting.

In this instance, however, young Paul Enlow argued with conviction and the author of his textbook, a distinguished professor of law at Stanford University, gave way to his pursuit of the truth.

Young Enlow's argument won the day and his textbook was altered to reflect. His steadfastness benefited fellow students across the nation. In lauding Paul Enlow's courage and incisive thought, Professor Gerald Gunther, the man bested in joust this one time, wrote:  "In this age of excessively laid back game playing, Paul Enlow's zeal and enthusiasm are qualities for admiration"

And this set the stage for a promising career.
