I am at Stanford to speak at a conference at the law school this week. I had the opportunity to walk around this truly magnificent campus today, a renewed pleasure that I would recommend to anyone.
I am speaking on Saturday as part of the law school’s conference “The Constitution and the Administrative State: Past, Present, and Future.” I will be speaking on a panel on Saturday at 1:30 moderated by Judge Consuelo Callahan of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and joined by Professor Eric Biber of UC Berkeley School of Law, Professor Zachary Price of UC Hastings College of the Law, and Professor Mark Tushnet of Harvard Law School.
This morning I broke away from litigation tasks in my hotel room (in a truly lovely Stanford Park Hotel in Menlo Park) to hike the “Disk Trail” and then walk around the campus. The trail has some wonderful wild flowers and a huge variety of song birds. You gain a wonderful view at the top of the hill of the bay and a nice 4 mile hike. You can then walk to the campus from the trail gate.
The thing I love most about Stanford is the smell of the trees and flowers and hit you as you walk through large campus. It is a truly breathtaking campus that reflects the outstanding scholarship that takes place here.
Here are few pictures from the trail and campus visit.
