UK Rosenberg Law has limited quantities of "The Man from Whitman Creek: A Biography of Robert G. Lawson" available to purchase. The book about the professor emeritus and former dean was written by William H. “Bill” Fortune, another professor emeritus at UK Rosenberg Law. Fortune is donating full proceeds from the sale of the book to the Paul Van Booven Scholarship Fund that Lawson started.

The Man from Whitman Creek details Lawson's long career of more than 50 years, teaching thousands of law students; counseling lawyers, judges and UK presidents; and authoring three books.
