The Aspen Advisor Week in Review for June 8, 2018

The Aspen Advisor Week in Review for June 8, 2018 random
SHARE

One of the many benefits of working in legal education is getting to discuss thought-provoking and complex topics with some of the brightest people – law professors. I hear legal experts interviewed by major news networks and proudly tell my family, “That’s our author!” I can talk with three professors and hear three different and compelling perspectives. I appreciate the care and judgement that goes into these arguments, regardless of which “side” I am on. There’s no yelling or name-calling, just rational discourse. These are not easy topics to broach but they are helpful in crafting our own opinions and leading change. Several topics being discussed this week fall into this category, from a justice gap to new business models. May they inspire you to learn more, discuss openly, and lead change.
