Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

III: Return of the King

Ever since Professor Emeritus Charlie Rice was ejected from the Board of Governors, many of us hoped that his candid and truthful advice, help, and character would have some continuing effect on our legal community.

Unlike some actors who use their tongue to deceive, everyone can agree that Rice will tell you what is on his mind -- he'll tell you the truth. In so many ways elaborated by the Ave Maria School of Law when they hired him, he truly is an example of what we strive to be as lawyers. Indeed, the words of Dobranski would make you think he was an indispensable cog in the machinery of Catholic legal education -- that is until such places change their mission to be real estate assets. Coincidentally, that's why God gave us a tongue -- to tell others the truth. but I digress...

Now, he can again be on the Board of at least one nonprofit supporting Catholic legal education in Michigan.
