A professor at Yale Law School writes:
Yale Law School may experience a wave of departures. [James] Whitman's going to New York (NYU or Columbia), [Alec] Stone Sweet is flirting with Columbia and Stanford, Kenji Yoshino will follow Whitman to one or the other, [Reva] Siegel and [Robert] Post are visitng at Harvard and one of them really wants to go.
Whitman, the distinguished legal historian and comparative lawyer, has lived in New York City for some time, so it is hardly surprising he would think of shortening his commute to work, though his departure would be an especially big blow for Yale.
