I am delighted to announce that the University has granted tenure to two of our outstanding junior faculty, John Chung and Keeva Terry. Both have impeccable academic credentials (John-Wash U and Harvard; Keeva-Harvard, Michigan, and Columbia) and in just a few years they began winning “Teacher of the Year Awards” from a student body who already were learning from excellent teachers.

In a dominating performance, a team of 1Ls - Brendan Schlander, Michael da Cruz, Nick Denice, Marc Fialkoff, James Glisson, and Samantha Clarke - cruised to victory over teams representing the 2L class, the 3L class, and the faculty in the 7th Annual Student/Faculty Jeopardy Game last week.  Despite the return to action of faculty Jeopardy stalwarts John Chung and Richard Rose (plus the efforts of teammates Tanya Monestier, Larry Ritchie, Andy Horwitz, and Linn Freedman) the 1L team took an early lead and cruised to an easy victory by more than $10,000.
