Monday Morning Message 3.4.24 Democracy Awakening

“Today’s crisis in democracy has brought us back to the same question that haunted the Founders: are the principles on which this nation was founded viable? Is it really possible to create a country in which everyone is equal before the law and entitled to have a say in their government, or are some people better than others and thus have the right- and the duty – to rule? ”  - Heather Cox Richardson, Democracy Awakening: Notes on the State of America

2024 Space Law Symposium: Eliminating the Threat of Orbital Debris

Global Space Law Center 2024 Annual Symposium

 

"A New Era of Responsibility in Space: Eliminating the Threat of Orbital Debris"

Man-made orbital debris poses the single greatest threat to the sustainable use of Earth’s orbit and puts at risk the space-based infrastructure on which society has become ever more reliant for everything from communications and navigation to tourism and national security. A series of new developments suggests that the international community is taking bold new steps to eliminate this risk and usher in a new era of responsible behavior in outer space, most notably the April 2022 U.S. moratorium on kinetic anti-satellite tests which has now gained significant international support.

Monday Morning Message 2.26.24 We Believe in You

“The brick walls are there for a reason...they are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something."   - Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

The Ohio Bar Exam is tomorrow and Wednesday. I want our most recent graduates, many of whom graduated last December, to know that we believe in them…… so I’ve taken the liberty of writing this brief message to them.

Serenity Prayer for CSU|LAW Bar Takers

God grant me the serenity to accept that I have prepared the best I can.

The courage to change from studying details to preparing my mind and body to breath, stay calm, and focus.

Monday Morning Message 2.19.24 27 Presidents

"I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside me." – President Abraham Lincoln

With all due respect to America’s doctors, dentists, nurses, engineers, architects, and business executives, no profession is more responsible for producing America’s local, state, and national leaders than the legal profession.

No profession is more common among U.S. Presidents and among those who founded our country.

Monday Morning Message 2.12.24 A Law Degree That Fits Your Life and Jumpstarts Your Future.

“I imagine getting this program up and running has been a monumental lift, so I wanted to make sure you heard from me saying thank you. It would be difficult for me to be going to law school in person, given my circumstances and where I live, so this opportunity has been and is very important to me…..I want to thank all the folks who have worked tirelessly to pull this program together so that people like me can have an opportunity to study the law. – Student, CSU|LAW J.D. online part-time program

Monday Morning Message 2.5.24 Calling Out Hate

“Don’t hate what you don’t understand.” - John Lennon

“When you hear people making hateful comments, stand up to them. Point out what a waste it is to hate, and you could open their eyes.”  - Taylor Swift

Throughout this 2024 presidential election year, when divisions in our country run deep and are likely to run even deeper, I intend to write regularly about our obligation to call out and condemn hate with moral clarity, our need for civil discourse, our responsibility to defend democracy, and the enduring value of free speech. Most importantly, I will continue to emphasize the need to treat each other – including those with whom we disagree – with respect and understanding.
