In this issue

Joseph Biancalana
Joseph's article on 13th century custodia (trust-like arrangements that antedated the invention of trusts in the 14th century) was accepted for publication in the Journal of Legal History.

Paul Caron
Paul completed his article, "The Federal Tax Implications of Bush v. Gore," which is circulating among various law reviews. He also published four issues of Tax Law Abstracts: Tax Law & Policy (vol. 2, nos. 9-11) (co-edited with Joe Bankman) and published the inaugural issues of Tax Law Abstracts: International & Comparative Tax (Vol. 1, No. 1) (co-edited with Eric Zolt) and Tax Law Abstracts: Practitioner Series (Vol. 1, No. 1) (co-edited with Joe Bankman) (www.ssrn.com).

Jack Chin
Jack's article "Effective Assistance of Counsel and the Consequences of Guilty Pleas," was accepted for publication in the Cornell Law Journal (2001).

Jack is very proud to announce that because of the great work of the student editors of the Immigration and Nationality Law Review (as well as the signatures of many of you on a petition) the Wyoming Legislature passed on February 21, 2001, and Governor Geringer signed the following day, a bill repealing Wyoming's Anti-Asian Alien Land Law. The law had been on the books since 1943, and was designed to ensure that the Japanese Americans interned in Heart Mountain departed after the war ended by criminalizing their ownership of land. If you see James Muetzel, Elizabeth Mulcahy, Megan Matsumura or Kristina Sawyer, be sure to congratulate them on a significant accomplishment. We would like to congratulate Jack on his excellent leadership as well.

Jack participated on a panel at Columbia Law School on "Teaching Asian Pacific Americans and the Law."
