Brian Leiter, in his infinite wisdom, has identified Chicago-Kent as one of the schools with an “unusually good eye for faculty talent.” See here. Leiter’s method for identifying these schools is the number of faculty who were snapped up by a “top 20ish law school.” Leiter identified some of the key individuals but to his list we should add Anita Bernstein (Emory – since moved on), Tim Holbrook (Emory), Claire Hill (Minnesota), and Peggie Smith (Iowa), not to mention the number of faculty who have turned down offers (e.g. Mark Rosen). Some schools might bemoan such a large number of departures but we here at Chicago-Kent are always delighted to celebrate the individual successes and career aspirations of our terrific scholars, not to mention we appreciate the goodwill these individuals spread to other institutions. Thanks Brian.
