Crim Law Expert Alschuler to Take Early Retirement at Chicago, Moving to Northwestern for fall 2006

Albert Alschuler, a leading expert on criminal law and procedure and longtime University of Chicago Law School faculty member, will take early retirement at Chicago at the end of next academic year, and join the faculty at Northwestern University School of Law for fall 2006--a good break for Northwestern, which has fared well on the market for junior faculty, but less well at the senior level in recent years.  (Oddly, or perhaps I should say misleadingly, Northwestern is also representing that they have appointed Daniel Fischel from Chicago, though I have it from Professor Fischel that he will merely be an adjunct there, teaching one course per year.  Much of his time now is apparently given to consulting.)
