    Issues like these and people like this are the reason I went to law school. The reality of practicing law is the reason I left law.

    Unfortunately, being a professor is one of the very narrow ways inside the field of law to get involved in these interesting issues. Fortunately it’s easier once you’re outside of law.

    Just drafted the call for papers for a nascent online journal I’m coediting, and he was on our shortlist of hoped-for contributors to send it to. This is incredibly saddening; he was a brilliant guy and I was looking forward to the possibility of corresponding with him. 55 is way too young.

    I had the pleasure of having Professor Aoki for two classes in law school. He was for sure a brilliant legal mind but also a definite pop-culture fiend, and thus the most memorable of all my professors. I will always remember the day he showed up to property class in a darth vader mask.

    Definitely missed.

    Man, I wish I had the time to read all those referenced books. Such an interesting discussion regarding race, immigration, segregation in our culture. Just having a better understanding of these matters makes it easier to understand people and what motivates them.
