4 Responses

  1. On the lateral front, Jeremy Rabkin (sovereignty, foreign relations) went to George Mason from Cornell’s government (or poli sci?) department, and Eugene Kontorovich (international criminal law, international legal theory, foreign relations) went from Mason to Northwestern (untenured).

  2. The original post incorrectly identified David Sloss as a lateral hire from St. Louis to Santa Clara. It has now been corrected. My bad.

  3. Eugene,

    Thanks. The list has been updated.

  4. Washington College of Law, American University lost Teemu Ruskola (comparative law) to Emory. WCL gained Steve Vladek in national security law – does that count? And Jamie Chuang in public international law, and other things international.
