New academic year is here!
but where oh where did the summer go?
Welcome to all new Northwestern law students. And welcome back to rising 2Ls and 3Ls. We hope the summer period was restful, productive, and happy. We are delighted to welcome you back.
I look forward to the coming year with eager anticipation of what is before us. We plan ambitiously for interesting events and programs and, of course, for a curriculum that is consistently vital, challenging, and well suited to the challenges of a dynamic profession. And, of course, things will happen that we cannot yet anticipate. In the midst of all of that, I hope all members of our Northwestern community will keep firmly in mind our commitment to maintaining the kind of special, supportive community which is our Law School’s hallmark.
Naturally, I urge you to keep up to date on this blog. After a bit of a hiatus, I look forward to contributing news, viewpoints, and perspectives and sharing information with our community and with other interested readers. I hope it will be regular reading material. And, whenever sensible, I will open up the comments thread for your insights and reflections (though please only non-anonymous, constructive comments).
