Dean Morrison has heard numerous speakers during his attendance at the past eleven Commencement Ceremonies of The George Washington University Law School, but confessed that every year, he remains "anxious to hear what the speakers have to say."  The 2009 graduating class is looking forward to hearing Alumnus Gregory G.

(1)   Hello Professor Butler.  Thank you for taking the time to complete this interview about Civil Rights, Race and the American Presidency with Nota Bene.  Would you tell us about your role here at GW Law?

I have been on the faculty of GW Law since 1993.  Last year I became the Associate Dean for Faculty Development, which means I help to advance the faculty's teaching and

A couple days ago, I stepped outside without needing my jacket.  It made me smile.  For the first time in recent memory, it was cloudless, bright, and warm all at once.

As this is the last Nota Bene for the 2008-09 year, I just wanted to take the time to let everyone know what they can expect from the Opinions portion of the paper for next year.  I have enjoyed sounding off on a variety of topics over the course of this year, and I'm sure the rest of the Opinions staff has felt the same way.  Having said that though, I realize that there are many more of you t

About a month ago, I attended the first meeting of an interfaith dialogue group in Washington, DC.  The group, comprised of several Jewish and Muslim members, is committed to exploring the similarities between our respective peoples amid the backdrop of the Middle East crisis.  Naturally, we kicked off our first meeting by breaking the ice, and overtly establishing that we are all open-minded,
