From the Dean
 Applauding Our Collective Accomplishments
Cardozo has always placed far more emphasis on what happens within aclassroom rather than on what that classroom looks like. Indeed, at times, itoften felt as if we made a virtue of our functional but uninspired facilities asa way of reinforcing the notion that we valued learning and the life of themind more than bricks and mortar. But now, having spent nearly $40 millionto expand and restore our facilities, we have so totally changed our environ-ment, that while new bricks and mortar may not affect one iota what wethink, they certainly have a markedly discernible impact on how we feelwhen we enter the Law School and how we perceive Cardozo in its entirety.The effort has been mammoth, requiring the time and attention of manyLaw School and University officials, Cardozo’s Board of Directors, two archi-tectural firms, and many construction engineers. This exceptional effortwould not have been completed without the impressive generosity of long-standing benefactors, new friends and donors, and a supportive university.The renovation projects disrupted normal, daily life at the Law School fornearly six years. Our entire community was affected, but it was our studentswho were most inconvenienced for the longest periods. Although on occa-sion they let loose howls of impatience with the noise and the dislocations,our students were admirably patient, understanding, and supportive, deserv-ing of our collective thanks.I would be remiss if I did not also point out that there is still more toaccomplish. Some parts of our physical plant cry out for attention. We mustcontinuously strengthen our support of faculty scholarship and teaching. Weneed to enhance our scholarship program for students who now shoulderhuge loans. In addition, if the Law School is to do more for its students, fac-ulty, and general communal life, it must fortify its lean infrastructure.So challenges remain, which is always true for an institution that takes itsendeavors seriously and seeks to constantly improve. For the moment, how-ever, we take pleasure, if not joy, in Cardozo’s exceptional accomplishments.David Rudenstine

In recent years it has become somewhat common practiceto refer to both the Attorney General and the SolicitorGeneral as “General,” a title not endorsed by governmentalagencies nor one historically or grammatically appropriate.Professor Herz writes amusingly about the genesis of this honorific.
