Phoenician Frolic

I am off to Phoenix for the Dolan Media editorial summit -- the annual conference we have to give the editors of the various sister papers under the Dolan Media rubric a chance to get together. I would have liked to check out that new Grand Canyon walkay while in AZ, but it won't be open to the public until a week from today. Darn. ... Then again I am no sure if having lawyers and journalists in a giant glass encosure jutting out 4,000 feet above the canyon is a good idea ...

A matter of degree

Minnesota Lawyer had a story this week on lawyers with both MBAs and JDs. (password required.)
In Boston, law schools have special expedited programs for getting a JD if you already have an MBA. When I arrived in Minnesota, however, I discovered that there were no such programs. I was able to obtain an MBA at the University of St. Thomas -- but no quicker than I would have been able to without a JD. I think the Twin Cities could benefit from an expedited MBA program for lawyers who want to get a graduate business degree after they get out of law school.
