• Let the Faculty Spin

    I often wonder what it would be like to bisect the law school at a single moment in time–to peer into every classroom and to listen to every conversation, debate, and presentation in every corner of this dynamic community, all at the same time. It would be dizzying, to be sure, but also invigorating. The variety of inquiries, perspectives and styles would be downright thrilling.

    The C-K Faculty Blog can’t capture the rich diversity of intellectual endeavors in that single moment in time, but it can capture, open up and expand the rich intellectual life of this law school as it unfolds daily. This is a place where you will find summaries of our recent scholarship, thoughts and opinions about developments in the law and the legal system, descriptions of workshops from visiting faculty, discussions of our own internal workshop series, celebrations of our individual successes and really just about anything that has to do with the intellectual life of the Chicago-Kent faculty. Welcome and enjoy.

    (And plaudits for anyone who can identify the literary allusion in the title and first paragraph of this post.)
