For months, the Columbia Law School community looked forward to the visit of Chief Justice Hironobu Takesaki (LL.M. ’71), who was scheduled to deliver a lecture at the Law School on October 31, 2012. Two days before his visit, New York City was hit by Hurricane Sandy. As a result of disruptions to the Chief Justice’s travel schedule, we were unable to hold the event. Although we unfortunately did not have the honor of hosting the Chief Justice, we are able to share the remarks he planned to give that evening. We look forward to hosting Chief Justice Takesaki on his next visit to the United States.
