The University of Florida is searching for a new law dean. Like every dean search committee, this one prefers to maintain confidentiality for as long as possible in the process. It makes sense: there are lots of potential candidates who don't want to aggravate a current employer if there's no possibility of getting the new gig. Unfortunately for those candidates, and the committee, Florida has an open meeting law. So Florida news outlets have been reporting on Professor Jeffrey Harrison's efforts to learn the list of candidates being considered at this Friday's dean search committee meeting. After a bit of work, he got the list. More on this story here.
The 24 candidates are listed here. Some interesting names!
