In our part of the world, January is almost universally perceived as a time for starting anew. For most people, this means starting a new diet; for me, this year, it means flirting with the idea of starting a diet, but committing to starting a blog.

Chances are that two questions flow from that statement for most of you: “why would a law school dean start a blog?” and “why should I read it?.” The first answer is easy: I’m asked a lot about what is going on at the law school, and sometimes, more generally, what is going on in legal education.  I want to create a place for community dialogue on issues impacting Temple Law,our parent University, legal education, and the legal profession, and to share with you some of the more interesting experiences that I get to have as Dean.  (I promise to spare you the less interesting ones). The second answer is largely up to you, but I hope it will involve a mutual love for at least one of these overlapping communities and an excitement for the potential that each of them has to do some very real good in the world.

Love the blog idea… I was recently accepted into the CLEO Six-Week Pre-Law Summer Institute. I read on the CLEO site that Temple University was one of the supporting institutions. Since Temple is one of my top choices from the law schools I applied to, I would like to know what your thoughts are on this program.

Thank you for your comment and your interest in Temple Law! CLEO is an excellent resource and you are very smart to take advantage of every opportunity available to you. I wish you luck in your application process and hope to see you here.
