When the National Gandhi Museum and the Delhi High Court Bar Association in India wanted to stage an exhibit about Mahatma Gandhi’s early years as a lawyer, they drew inspiration from the scholarship of a law professor at West Virginia University. 


“I couldn’t have imagined a more gratifying use of my scholarship. More than 500 Delhi High Court lawyers and judges showed up to kick off the exhibit.” — Charles DiSalvo, WVU College of Law
