I am very grateful for the opportunity afforded by this Allen Chair lecture. I grew up in Richmond. During my formative years, between zero and two, my family lived in an apartment on Grace Street, and my mother would push me in the stroller around the block of Lombardy and Grace, where the T.C. Williams Law School was once located. Given all we know about psychology, it surely must be the case that the subliminal suggestion of legal studies at that crucial time accounts for my present occupation as a law professor.
