All I can say is that this was most certainly NOT a vote of the FIU tenure stream faculty, who will have the ultimate vote-- yes, an actual vote, which this was not-- on both tenure and rank. This was a poll of the "faculty" as that word is broadly construed in the faculty bylaws. This term includes legal writing, clinic, various administrative deans who are not tenure stream, and joint appointees with other colleges. None of these individuals-- who represented about 10 of the 26 votes cast-- will have a role in the final tenure or rank vote. And it also did NOT include (due to an odd last-minute ruling from general counsel's office about the Florida Sunshine Law) the 4 members of the Search & Screen Committee, 3 of whom are tenure stream, and the fourth of whom is arguably FIU College of Law's most accomplished scholar (Stanley Fish). There is very strong opposition to Juarez among the tenure-stream faculty because he has spent 19 years in the academy with very little scholarship of note. Just thought the record should be set straight, since the original post was so incredibly inaccurate.


Why is this process so complicated? Maybe someone should really look at this group of people. My tax dollars are paying for their jobs but I sense they are only fighting for their own agenda and not that of my sons and daughters who may attend this school. Tenure, rank, accomplished, etc.. why so much division or class? Why can't everyone be heard?


My tax dollars to to support this law school as well, and I'd like to know why the previous post thinks that allowing someone to discuss the context of the situation is somehow not in keeping with the idea of "everyone being heard." Seems the opposite to me-- why is the previous post trying to suppress the comments of the first post?

Don t listen to those who say,"It’s not done that way.” Maybe it’s not, but maybe you will. Don’t listen to those who say,"You’re taking too big a chance.”
