Congratulations are in order for our own Gordon Smith, who was recently named the new dean of BYU Law School beginning May 1! Anyone who has spent much time talking to Gordon knows that he is a visionary, someone who is always asking how to make this institution, this organization, this conference, even this blog, better. I am very excited to see how he applies his boundless energy and creativity to the deanship here at BYU. Obviously, being a law school dean these days has its challenges and opportunities, and I trust wholeheartedly Gordon's judgment and care in this regard. I doubt any of us will get much sleep for the next five years, but I can guarantee that this institution will be all the better for it.
