Dean’s Corner

_
_ Jeffrey S. Brand

From Professor Richard Leo winning a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship to cutting edge empirical research by the McCarthy Institute to media spotlights in the New York Times, Associated Press, and many more, the law school is engaged in dynamic work that is gaining wide recognition. Another point of pride is our recognition by the National Jurist as one of the most diverse law schools and 12th in percentage of minority faculty. As we come to the end of this dynamic academic year, I invite you to join us at our annual Alumni Graduates Dinner scheduled for May 18 at the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco, where we will toast the Class of 2011 as well as the entire law school community of alumni, faculty, staff, and students who all play a part in our accomplishments. A few days later will bring graduation, with a commencement address by our own Hon. Ming Chin ’64, associate justice of the California Supreme Court. It promises to be a fitting end to an inspiring year.

Sincerely,

Jeffrey S. Brand
