Anthony Niedwiecki's resume includes law professor, LGBTQ activist, and, for a short spell, the vice mayor of a south Florida town.

  • Last year, he was named dean and president of Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

Because Niedwiecki started in the pandemic, he was never formally welcomed as the school's top figure. That changes tonight, at an installation ceremony set to feature some of the state's biggest names in law.

Ahead of tonight's event, we asked the new dean to open up about how he uses his phone for work and for fun. Read on for his picks.

  • ๐Ÿ“ฑ Device of choice: iPhone X
  • ๐Ÿ‘‡ First tap of the day: Microsoft Outlook and The New York Times
  • ๐Ÿฆ Most-used app: "Twitter, because it gives me a good overview of news and things happening with colleagues and friends across the country."
  • #LegalTwitter must-follow: "@SCOTUSblog (for non-legal [takes], I recommend WeRateDogs)"
  • ๐Ÿ“ฐ Go-to news source: NYT and Washington Post
  • ๐ŸŽง Podcast queue: NPR's "Throughline" and "Youโ€™re Wrong About."
