Bob Dylan and the Law. Perhaps this sort of quality conference programing is why Fordham was ranked ahead of UB in the most recent US News survey. Just for fun I went to the UB Law website to see what we have coming up in the next couple of months. The Environmental Law Program and Baldy Center hosts the conference "Hydrofracking: Exploring the Legal Issues in the Context of Politics, Science and the Economy". I think I'm giving blood that day. "Corporate Family Leave Policies, the Family & Medical Leave Act, and Women's Occupational Standing in U.S. Firms". Good thing I'm a apheresis donor-- I can use the blood excuse lots. If I happened to be in the building (which I won't be) I suppose I might look into the talk on the Treaty of Lisbon, but that's because it's an esoteric subject that I've read a bit about in the past. There can't be twenty people in a fifty mile radius who could tell you what the Treaty of Lisbon is about.

I don't mean to disparage serious academic stuff, but would it be so bad to sponsor something with some popular interest? I don't just mean Lawyers in Movies, but c'mon, let's have something that's a little less "Eat Your Vegetables."
