Dean’s Corner

_
_ Jeffrey S. Brand

This week we welcome to the law school approxi- mately 250 first-year students who were chosen from nearly 5,000 applicants—our largest applicant pool ever. They are a smart and diverse group (40 percent students of color and 53 percent women) who arrive at a law school dedicated more than ever to its nearly 100-year tradition of educating for justice and training skilled, ethical legal professionals. Joining our new JD students are 23 LLM students, all foreign lawyers hailing from 12 countries.

Meanwhile, many of our continuing students are returning from enriching summer programs around the world, including internships in India, Vietnam, China, Spain, and Argentina, study abroad in Dublin and Prague, and a service project in Haiti. The list goes on and you can read about their experiences in their own words here. (I also visited students in several programs this summer and blogged and Tweeted about it.)

Our fall calendar is already filling up with alumni gatherings and engaging academic symposia. On Sept. 24 we will host a reception for alumni and friends at the annual California Bar Association meeting in Monterey. Oct. 23 will bring our annual reunion gala, which promises to be better than ever this year. Upcoming academic symposia include an Oct. 1 symposium examining emerging issues in clean technology and the law and an Oct. 30 symposium focusing on cy pres relief in class action cases.

I hope to see you at one or more of our events or at the law school soon!

Sincerely,

Jeffrey S. Brand
