Visiting Professors, 2006-07

MOVING TO FRONT FROM JULY 10 (with a couple of corrections, but mostly so those who missed it during the summer might see it)

Below are listed visiting professors at the top six law schools by almost all measures of faculty quality--which are the schools that also typically have the most visiting professors on a regular basis.  While many visiting stints are made with an eye to possible permanent appointment, not all are; some are so-called "podium" visits, which aim to fill an immediate teaching need at the school. (Harvard, among these six, relies quite a bit on such visitors.)  Often visitors from local schools in the area are invited for that purpose--though some "locals" may also be "look-see" visitors, i.e., under consideration for appointment.  NYU also has a fair number of "enrichment" and "global" visitors, well-known senior folks who are keen to spend some time in NYC (especially if the rest of the time they have to be in New Haven!), but who aren't necessarily interested in, or being considered for, lateral moves.  (Columbia gets some of these folks too.)  From the outside, of course, it's very hard to tell all these apart, so here, without further comment, are the visiting professors for 2006-07; please e-mail me about omissions or corrections, and I will update the list at various intervals over the next couple of weeks.
