To the extended family of Rodney Shkolnick: Please accept my condolences on the loss of your wonderful family member. Truly, he was a legendary faculty member and mentor in the Creighton University School of Law. His clear love for the law and its proper role in society was edifying, and anchored his professionalism and integrity. Creighton was blessed indeed by his decades of service and his dedication to students and the profession. I will remember him in my prayers. --Fr. Jim Clifton, SJ
