"Coming Around Again": My Unlikely Law and Economics Journey

Updated: Sep 24, 2020


Dear Readers:

On February 28, 2019, I had the tremendous honor of my investiture as the Venable, Baetjer & Howard Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law. Following a generous introduction by the Dean of the Law School, Donald Tobin, I gave a speech, the title of which is inspired by a wonderful Carly Simon song. The speech, which begins at the 7:55 mark, lasts about 48 minutes and covers a broad range of topics. Please note that you will need Adobe Flash to view the video. (For Mac users, this might require copying the link into a different browser than Safari, such as Google Chrome.)

Here is the video link: http://video.law.umaryland.edu/OpenPlayer.asp?GUID=A374F5B2-7352-4497-83EC-14D5DFCED83C.

I hope you enjoy, and as always, I welcome your comments.
