Towards the end of my second year of law school, as I began to learn the ropes of my new position as Editor-in-Chief, I had several opportunities to sit down and talk with Dean Sell about the upcoming year. Although I never was a student of his in the classroom, I looked forward to working with the Law Review’s most senior faculty advisor. We discussed all sorts of ideas, large and small, for how to improve the Law Review. I looked on as he learned how to use a digital camera. I got to hear a few of his legendary stories. I began to get a feel for how we would work together. It felt particularly good when he leaned over and whispered to me, “I have a feeling we’re going to get along very well.”
