Good morning. Great to be here with you. Thank you for joining and to those who are streaming. I want to thank Dean Gerken and Dean Manning for their agenda-setting leadership.
Since this conference is about data, I want to start with a number: 163.
Does anyone know the significance of 163?
Before you start Googling, I’ll tell you …163 is the number of years that have passed between the founding of Yale Law School and when U.S. News and World Report first started ranking law schools. For Harvard, it’s 170.
Imagine that.
