A Dog’s Life

My graduating students sometimes say “thanks,” but this year a pair of them made a different choice. They bought themselves an Airdale puppy. Name? As one of the graduates wrote me: “I, in particular, wanted something law school-y. Not lawyer-ly, or Pittsburgh-y, but law school-y. We went through case names, legal doctrines (res ipsa loquitur and similar), and professor names. To make a long story short, we settled on Madison.”
