Retirement and Resignation Festivities
November 13, 2018 § 9 Comments
At least 18 chancellors will be leaving the bench at the close of business on December 31 (actually on December 28, because the Governor decreed the 31st to be a holiday this year).
If there is a reception or ceremony scheduled in honor of your chancellor, readers of this blog might want to find out about it so that they can make plans to attend.
Please comment with any info you have. You can comment later on this same post as information develops.
