Edley, Jr. (Dean at Boalt, formerly Harvard), Henry Hansmann (Yale), Herbert Hovenkamp (Iowa), Pamela Karlan (Stanford), Judge David Levi (U.S. District Court in Sacramento, soon to be Dean of Duke), former Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Richard Revesz (Dean at NYU). (I am told O'Connor's nomination was extremely controversial, given her reputation among academics, but I don't know the details.)
In addition, two Foreign Honorary Members were elected: Rosalie S. Abella of the Canadian Supreme Court and William Twining, Quain Chair in Jurisprudence Emeritus at University College London and a frequent visiting professor of law at the University of Miami.
Some (though far from all) of the embarrassing sins of omission noted before were rectified this year.
