On my way back from Memphis, where I spoke at the Rhodes College Institute on the Profession of the Law. This is an annual event (well, my speaking there is not an annual event, but you understand), and I was struck not just by the College (which seems plucked from Oxbridge), but by the seriousness with which 100 lawyers spend a morning thinking, and arguing, about real issues. Maybe its something about the pure Tennessee air (my mom’s from Chattanooga), or the distance from Washington, DC. But it is such a pleasure to be able to talk about these issues with people thinking about them genuinely.
