...Living In A Van, Down By The River.
Judge Charles Breyer, of California’s venerable Northern District, will be at Boalt on Tuesday to deliver what promises to be a truly rousing motivational speech. The judge has strong views on everything from the United States Supreme Court ("my brother’s court") to patent law ("I don’t like patent cases") to Boalt’s success in preparing politically engaged lawyers (unprintable). He was also a trial lawyer (civil and criminal) for many years, and is thus a forceful and compelling speaker. Highly recommended.
