When the Class of 2004 Law Review members congregated as a group for the first time this August, they found that a surprising three-quarters of them shared a common characteristic — they were men.

1L orientation isn’t so easy JEREMY BLACHMAN discovers. While there are all of those goodies from Lexis and Westlaw, there’s also wheelbarrows full of flyers, brochures and maps. And that’s not to mention the stuff you get from the Fleet Bank man.

The U.S. military ought to change its slogan. What it really means is: “Be all that you can be, unless you’re being gay.” After the military threatened the withdrawal of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding unless Harvard Law School permitted the military to interview through OCS, Dean Clark was forced to allow the employer on campus despite its formal policy of discrimination against gays and lesbians.
Target shooting club founder urges more gun debates, an alum lamets this semester’s lack of Nesson, and a HBS grad argues that Harvard should not divest from Israel.
