My friend and co-editor, Alan Childress, has been named to the Conrad Meyer III Professorship in Civil Procedure at the Tulane University Law School. There are so many things one could say at this moment that would be wholly inappropriate to the tone of great honor, dignity, and solemnity I want to invoke.
Let's just review the bidding for a moment. In addition to his Harvard law degree, Professor S. Alan Childress has a Ph.D. in Jurisprudence and Social Policy from the University of California at Berkeley. Alan has been a member of the Tulane faculty since 1988, where he has taught "The Legal Profession" since 1990, and "Comparative Legal Professions" since 2002. He is co-author of the classic treatise Federal Standards of Review. While visiting at George Washington this year, he has mastered TypePad technology, and his contributions to this blog are widely admired (other than in certain quarters of the body art community).
Please join me in congratulating Alan on this honor.
