The concept of "community" has become increasingly important in law schools, relating both to our professionalism and the education of our students. During the recent celebration of our school's 185th anniversary of its founding, I addressed one of the school's core values, that of "community". This article explores that value and its meaning both within our law schools and the greater society, serving to advance the public interest and the interests of our law students, the legal academy and practicing attorneys everywhere. The message conveyed is universal and contemporary, going well beyond our anniversary celebration. Ultimately, it can help serve to guide the academy, the profession and students of all law schools to understand what "community" can mean to them.
