Public Law Scholar Vermeule from Chicago to Harvard

Adrian Vermeule (constitutional law, legislation, statutory interpretation) at the University of Chicago has accepted the offer from Harvard Law School. 

Harvard's dramatic expansion of its faculty in the last couple of years has led it on an aggressive raid of highly regarded younger legal scholars at a variety of schools, in addition to Vermeule:  most recently, Jody Freeman (environmental law) from UCLA; Jack Goldsmith (international law) from Virginia; Daryl Levinson (constitutional law and theory) from NYU; and John Manning (administrative law) from Columbia.  Of special interest, given the myth of the left-leaning academy, is that three of these appointments (Vermeule, Goldsmith, and Manning) are of scholars generally considered to be conservative.
