The 2008 Law Faculty Lateral Moves List

Updated as of February 25 and moved to the top.  I'ved noted the newest changes in red.  If you have entry level hiring news, make sure to alert Larry Solum.  His request for information, a particular format, is here.

It strikes me that it's time to start organizing this year's law faculty lateral moves list.  Paul Secunda's great series of posts at Co-op (here, here, here, here, and here) inspired me to get the list posted.  As always, I rely on others to provide information for me to share.  Many thanks to Brian Leiter et al for their efforts putting some of this information into the blogosphere.  Inevitably this initial list will be radically incomplete - and perhaps contain errors.  I apologize in advance.    Please email me at danielmfiller@gmail.com with any additional info.

not a good year for cornell

It would be great if you did a GAINS column and a LOSSES column, or in this case a GAINS post and a LOSSES post. I realize I can get this info just by reading or doing a CTRL-F, but it would be interesting to have it compiled as it may show schools with quite a few departures.

How about Ernest Young from Texas to Duke.

Joan Howarth from UNLV to Michigan State (to be dean). http://www.law.msu.edu/news/2008/releases/howarth-dean.html

Doug Kysar to Yale

Tim Zick to William and Mary

When you do the updates, how about adding an "updated" or "new" word next to the additions? Just a thought, as this is a great service you're doing, and this way it's easier to see who's new to the list since the earlier version.

Richard Storrow from Penn State to CUNY

Anyone dare say what's going on at Penn State?

As with Lyman Johnson, the listing for Sunstein should reflect that the fact that he will continue to teach one quarter per year at Chicago.

Penn State: 2-campus law school = chaos. Losing good people.

Carla Pratt from Penn State to Texas Wesleyan.

Sunstein's listing should not include Chicago because he will only be teaching as a visting professor.
