Emory University School of Law has announced the appointment of Robert Schapiro as the school's permanent dean. He has been serving as interim dean since last July. Schapiro is a graduate of Yale Law School and clerked for Justice Stevens. He has been on the Emory faculty since 1995. My understanding is that he passed on at least one other juicy job opportunity over the last couple of years - a gamble that seems to have paid off with a very nice outcome.
