Around Campus: Law School & Emeritus College

The inherent tensions between the changing economic environment of the practice of law and the aims of a legal education were discussed at length during the January meeting, in keeping with the new practice of asking one or two council members per meeting to report on discussion topics from his or her school. Law professor Barbara Woodhouse spoke about that issue, as well as desires to increase diversity among law school faculty and students, expand university support for cross-departmental collaborations, and iden- tify the school’s areas of strength and distinction. Emerita professor Yung-Fong Sung also presented an overview of Emeritus College concerns, emphasizing its goals of doubling membership by next year, developing a research fellowship, expanding its mentoring programs, creating guided excursions and tours of other institutions’ emeritus colleges, and hosting an annual meeting of such organizations in the near future.
