Dear Colleagues,

You may have noticed that Thanksgiving is coming! This is always one of my favorite holidays, and, this year, I am grateful to have the chance to say a special thank you to my friends and colleagues here at Harvard Law School. Your talent, commitment, and teamwork make HLS the lively, exciting, and consequential place that it is.

I am so happy to continue the great Thanksgiving tradition begun by my predecessors and to offer a small token of my appreciation: namely, a pie—your choice of pumpkin, pecan, or apple. Please come share refreshments and festivity—and pick up your pie—at the Thanksgiving party on Tuesday, November 21st from 3-5pm in WCC Milstein East.

The party also will give us the chance to take part in what has become another great HLS Thanksgiving tradition. Note cards will be available at the party, and I hope you’ll take a moment to write down a few words of appreciation to those who have made a difference to you over the past year. It’s a nice opportunity to thank them – and to reflect on what great friends and colleagues we get to work with all year.

In addition to expressing appreciation to one another, I hope we will think of those in need. Please consider helping as we collect non-perishable food items for donation to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Donation boxes will be available November 17-22 at the following WCC locations: first floor next to the main stairwell; at the bottom of the Hark ramp; and across from the Pub Grille.

Thank you for all you do to make HLS a terrific community.

With warm wishes for a great holiday!

Dean Manning
