"3L" means a law student in his or her final year of law school before entering the profession.

"L3" is apparently a parasitic larvae in its third, and final stage, of development before it enters the host. Well that's disturbing.

Dean James Rasband; Hugh W. Colton Professor of Law

Dean Rasband teaches a class on public lands and natural resources. His lectures often raise controversial issues, which in turn trigger entertaining comments from the class. My favorite comment, duly noted in my class notes, was this zoological gem: "That's how it happens with monkeys. The monkey that can forage the best is the monkey that can beat all the other monkeys out of its lands." I'm not sure what that means, you might want to check the recordings for January 14, 2010.
