It has been exciting to watch all of the University of Chicago connections who are joining the Barack Administration. A recent appointment included Professor Cass Sunstein to be the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Here is a link to the story.
Also, if you get up early on Monday, January 12 you can watch the live broadcast from the Law School of CNBC's "Squawk Box" (it airs from 5-8 am CST). The show will include interviews of several individuals including our own Professor Douglas Baird and Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes (high school classmate of mine). It should be exciting and our students get to be in the audience!
