The LSCB today introduces a new recurring feature. Though Provoking Law Quotes will hopefully provide an opportunity to spice up your PPT lecture slides or syllabi or suggest a discussion starter for your class. I encourage readers to send me your favorite thought provoking quotes and I will be happy to share them for you on the LSC blog.
