Dear Georgetown Law Community,
I hope you all had a restful Thanksgiving break and you were able to spend time with loved ones in a meaningful way. This Thanksgiving was different from any other I have celebrated. But it was, as always, an opportunity to reflect on the things for which I am grateful.
I continue to be enormously grateful to be a part of the Georgetown Law community. I am grateful to our students, for not only sticking with law school this fall semester, but also for their kindness, understanding, and energy they always bring to learning, and their continuing commitment to justice. I am grateful to our faculty for their dedication to the Law Center and our students, and for the countless hours they have spent making this semester work. Finally, I am grateful to our staff, whose flexibility, creativity, and endurance continue to amaze me.
This has been a hard year, and it’s not over yet. But the pandemic has reinforced my belief that the values of our community are something special. Thank you all for contributing to them.
There is little news to announce this week, as we in the Dean’s Office continue to both plan for the spring semester and monitor public health conditions. In the meantime, I want to share a few pictures of the pilot hybrid classes we held on campus before the holiday break. If all goes well, this will be our model for some portion of our classes this spring.
