  1. Columbia law diplomas are actually in Latin? Talk about legacy code…

    Regardless, congrats. Somehow you managed to write insightful blog posts while going through law school at the same time.

  2. What bothers me is that the part where your name is mentioned is clearly in indirect discourse, governed by “sciatis”. But since your last name, at least, is a Latin word, it seems to me that it should have been put in the accusative (“Villam”).

  3. And since the diploma is in Latin, shouldn’t your name have been spelled LVIS VILLA?

  4. Congrats!

    So, is law school worth it? I’ve thought about going as well.

  5. Woohoo!! Go VILLA!!! Congratulations, my man! We are proud of you. :-)


  6. Thanks, everyone!

    Thomas, I will post a retrospective on law school some time in the next few weeks, when I have time to settle down and consider it. Nutshell answer to your question of ‘is it worth it’ is ‘it depends; it was for me but I am lucky enough to be in a very, very unusual situation- for many (most?) people I would not recommend it.’

  7. No new fangled u’s and j’s or spaces between the words. No, dots were good enough then and they are good enough now.
