The Madisionian Mobblog comes to a partial end today. The blog will now return to a mix of pieces on law, technology, and society. Nonetheless, there may be additonal posts on the topic so stay tuned for those.
In addition, I want to take a moment and thank all involved with this event. I had a simple goal: a round of intellectual rugby about the topic “What Kind of Institution Do We Want A Law School To Be?” The idea was that many people with many views would mix it up and push the limits of what we know and think about legal education. With the help of everyone who posted, commented, and came here to read that has been achieved. The folks here at Madisonian and I thank you for a fun and most satisfying event.
On a personal note, the generosity and commitment to our profession exhibited by all of you sets an example for me as I continue to develop. I offer my personal thanks for that. In addition, I would be remiss if I did not again thank Mike Madison for helping me shape my idea and offering the blog as a space to explore it. I give further thanks to all my Madisonian colleagues for their feedback and support for the event. So although it is not enough, I say thank you here.
Last, there is more to do. I think the mobblog shows that legal education has real challenges ahead, but it is in good hands; hands that want to identify real problems, to gather facts, to develop and apply theory, and to discuss and debate solutions so that we can improve the institution we call law school. I look forward to seeing how we meet the future and the possibility of helping shape it.
