I remember sitting in the law auditorium late in our first semester of law school. Listening to a handful of professors, we heard about the electives offered for second semester. I am not sure how I felt prior to entering the auditorium that day. I do remember how I felt afterwards -- I was going to get into Professor Clark’s class. From what I’ve heard, her legal history seminar was by far the most highly coveted of the first-year electives. That’s no surprise, though -- you could almost feel her excitement as she spoke about the course. On hearing that I had been admitted to Professor Clark’s class, a friend who had not been so fortunate said, “You’re so lucky.” She was right. Absolutely.
