UC Irvine Authorized to Hire a Founding Law Dean

So reports this local newspaper:

UC Irvine officials got the go-ahead today to hire a founding dean for the university's recently approved law school, at an annual salary of $233,200 to $364,300.

The campus has begun recruiting for the position, in hopes that the new school will open in 2009. No one has been selected for the job.

Finding a new dean quickly will be crucial to that deadline, as he or she would be in charge of hiring the first faculty members and building a major law library.

I have a prediction about who they will choose (a quite successful sitting law Dean, committed to interdisciplinary scholarship, and with Califiornia ties), but since it's not based on real evidence, just speculation, I'll keep it to myself!
