Boston to Austin

This morning I went for a run, had a meeting here at Harvard and now will head back to Texas. I think it's fair to say that the trip has been a success. James Nortey did a fantastic job, and there were 80-100 people there for my lecture, which is a big crowd for this kind of thing. Moreover, they were a wonderful and responsive group. It was a great discussion, and I was very happy to bring a bit of Baylor Law to Harvard. You can see the (somewhat oversimplified) story in the Harvard Crimson here. It was also the lead story on the Crimson's web site this morning, though that will change as the day goes on.

If you are interested in the topic, I will be giving the same lecture, open to the public, at Baylor on December 8 at 7 pm.

I'll be back in Waco for a bit Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, then head to Austin to speak to the Travis County women lawyers about the death penalty. Then, Thursday morning I will teach appeals and habeas in the morning then head to San Antonio to do a federal panel CLE on prosecutorial misconduct. Whew! Then on Friday I will do laundry or perhaps get ready for next week.

One thing I can say is that this is a wonderful job, and I love every bit of it.

Nice, Osler! The #2 story on the web site is Michael Dukakis speaking there yesterday, and #3 was Nancy Pelosi speaking there. What did you do, hand out free crack?
You should get a Green and Gold tie.. works for W&M and Baylor. Stop pandering to the Harvard types with the Crimson tie.
Yes, I thought the writing in that article was kind of simple, or simplistic . . . wasn't quite the level I was expecting for Harvard. But hey, it's on the front page!
Nice write up and you look quite 'professorial' in that photo!
