"From The Editor"



Dear Readers:

It's that time of year again--Thanksgiving. Before you bite into that piping hot roast turkey, though, we bring you some food for thought in our latest edition of The Law Student Connection.

As always, our cooks come from a wide range of "establishments" throughout the state--Albany Law School, Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School, Brooklyn Law School, the Maurice Dean School of Law at Hofstra University, and Syracuse Law School. We also welcome a contributor from halfway across the country: a third-year student from the Moritz College of Law at Ohio State who is a member of NYSBA and who plans to sit for the New York bar examination next June.

And the menu, of course, is quite diverse. Brian Farkas examines the challenges and possible consequences presented by the Federal Communications Commission's new net neutrality rules and the pending litigation surrounding these measures. Sarah Wieselthier studies the legal issues surrounding the use of service dogs by students with disabilities in a school setting. Neema Kassaii looks at New York State's at-will employment law and puts forth an argument for revising it. Sreyashe Dhar offers a critique of a recent Supreme Court decision regarding corporate funding in elections, while Joseph Barsalona II argues for change in the way courts apply the demand requirement in shareholder derivative suits.

Also, before you go out to catch that Thanksgiving turkey, make certain to read Nicholas Battaglia's article describing the way New York State courts have interpreted the rights and liabilities of hunters.

There are other items, too, that are are ready for you to enjoy. And be certain to look over our new listing of the upcoming scholarships and fellowships that NYSBA has to offer. You might find something that is the perfect fit for you.

So pull up a chair, stay for a while, and eat your fill. Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving.

Sincerely,

Benjamin Pomerance
Editor-In-Chief
