Fall 2006 1L Welcome Address

"It is my pleasure to extend a formal welcome to the class of 2009, and to congratulate you on finishing Legal Methods. As I thought about what to say to you, I realized that this occasion has special significance for me. My mother, Hazel Gerber Schizer, was a member of the Class of 1959 at the Law School, and it is now fifty years since she and her classmates sat where you now sit, thinking of the three years that lay before them."
