Background[edit]

Freeman was one of the first lawyers to use Rule 23 of federal civil procedure. According to the Chicago Tribune, he used the rule in class action suits to recover damages for state and public agencies that had been overcharged as a result of price fixing conspiracies affecting the products they had purchased. An arts patron, Freeman and his wife, Brena, established the composer-in-residence program at the Lyric Opera. They also funded the Nelson Algren Awards for the best American short stories, a competition that was taken over by the Chicago Tribune in 1988.

Education[edit]

Freeman graduated from Syracuse University and from Northwestern University Law School. He began his career as an assistant Illinois attorney general. He later established the Lee and Brena Freeman chair at the University of Chicago Law School.
