The most reliable measure of an academic faculty's distinction is its body of scholarship,
produced over the course of its individual members' careers and presented in its entirety.Scholarly works on law -- especially those published as books, chapters, and journal articles
-- advance every aspect of this school's mission. The works themselves, of course,
advance knowledge about the law and allied disciplines. What is perhaps less readily understood is the connection between our school's teaching and scholarly missions. Preparing works of scholarship, like no other activity, keeps our faculty members at the cutting edge of the law. As a result, the best teachers in this profession as a rule are the best scholars, and the best scholars typically rank among our best teachers. ~Dean Jim Chen
Due to public safety concerns, pedestrian access will be eliminated around the construction site at the northeast corner of Third Street and Eastern Parkway. The Third Street sidewalk from the corner to the Cardinal Shuttle stop just south of the Oval is being closed immediately. The sidewalk from that corner east on Eastern Parkway is being closed up to the Natural Science Building. Also, the Third Street sidewalk south of Eastern Parkway near the Engineering Graphics parking lot will be closed soon for utilities work. During that time pedestrians need to cross Third Street near the entrance to the Engineering Graphics lot, proceed north on Third, and cross back at the Eastern-Third Street intersection. Signs will mark all closures and alternate routes.
