Graduation Remarks of Professor Jay C. Carlisle, I1 at The Twenty-Third Graduation Ceremony of Pace University School of Law on May 20,2001 Jay C. Carlisle, 11" I. Introduction Thank you Dean David Cohen, President Caputo and Chairman Bianco. Good morning class of 2001. Congratula- tions and thank you for honoring the founding members of the faculty of law. You are the twenty-third class to graduate from our won- derful law school. Your graduation is a joyous occasion for you and cause for celebration. For you it means the end of some nineteen years of attending formal classes and taking examina- tions. No more Bluebooks. No more hypothetical essay ques- tions and the end forever of the Socratic method. No more long walks up the hill from the bottom of the parking lot. Never again will you have to sit through Professor Fishman's Con- tracts I1 class where he discusses offer and acceptance in the rap style complete with sunglasses and makeup. Never again will you have to attend a 9:00 a.m. Friday morning torts class after spending the preceding Thursday night in a four-hour liq- uid seminar at Olivers. Never again will you have to pay hard- earned money to watch Professor Janet Johnson's two-step sexy Tango with a young male partner at the Legal Aid Show. Never again will you be subjected to Professor Miller's Torts I discus- sions of consortium and his lengthy explanation of why sex is not an element of negligence or his attempt to clarify a student's reference to a spermatic cord. * Jay C. Carlisle, I1 has A.B. and J.D. degrees from the University of Califor- nia and completed post graduate law studies a t Columbia University. He was ad- mitted to the New York Bar in 1970 and is an elected life Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. Professor Carlisle is one of the Law School's founding faculty. Heinonline - - 22 Pace L.
