University of Connecticut School of Law Facebook
pages were bursting with photos of a tree dedication held recently to honor Professor Emeritus Colin Tait for four decades of his teaching, expert writings, and service to the law profession.
The professor’s story and commitment are wonderful. The tree planting and the type of tree happened to catch my interest.
The newly planted tree, a white oak, alludes to UConn’s seal, and of course Connecticut’s state tree, so it’s a gift with perfect symbolism. The school seal has oak leaves and acorns in its center, with the name of the University and School of Law as a border around it.
