more on HLE conference

The luncheon plenary on Saturday featured Paula Lustbader of Seattle University, who talked about law school orientation and analogized it to Dorothy's adventures in Oz.  In a creative and thoughtful discussion of students' needs during orientation and after, she made two especially memorable points:  first, we should be more present in our students' experience than Glenda the Good Witch (who flitted in and out and back again, but was not a helpful ongoing presence), and we should anticipate and preclude the surprise of the law school version of flying monkeys for our students whenever possible.
