William P. Borland

William P. Borland, Dean of the Kansas City School of Law, was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, October 14, 1867.  He lived there until 1880, when he came to Kansas City.   After graduating from the High School, Mr. Borland entered the law office of Pratt, McCrary & Ferry.  Then he entered the law department of the University of Michigan, from which he was graduated in 1892 with the degree of L. L. B.

     Mr. Borland was one of the founders of the Kansas City School of Law in 1895.  He was elected Dean in that year, and has been re-elected every year since then.

     For one term Mr. Borland was vice-president of the Kansas City Bar Association and a member of its examining board.  He was a charter member of the University Club.

     The lectures of Mr. Borland before the classes of the Kansas City School of Law on contracts, wills, and Blackstone's Commentaries have made for him a reputation as an expounder of the intricate problems of the law.

     For a while Mr. Broland was in partnership with Chas. E. Pratt, but since 1896  he has practiced alone.  His duties as Dean of the School of Law are not allowed to interfere with his practice.
