"We have had a trend of increasing our bar passage rates over the last number of years [which] has consistently surpassed the state average."

The Minnesota Lawyer – Nov. 17The Minnesota Lawyer
- The Court of Appeals celebrated its 25th anniversary with a red rose-bedecked feast at Landmark Center in St. Paul on Thursday, Nov. 6, the site where the first judges for the court took their oaths. The evening featured a video on the history of the court and a speech by Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, professor at the School of Law, an authority on judicial diversity and independence. She recommended that judges "aggressively fight to restore the rights of litigants to center place in the discussion of judicial independence." But she also said that the national trend to nasty, expensive judicial campaigns is not all attributable to Republican Party v. White.

Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), advocated increased federal oversight of derivatives when he was with the CFTC in the late 1990s. "I think the American people now are insistent after having to make this huge investment in the financial services market that no part of this market be a secret to the United States government."
