Three Senior Hires for Cornell: Colb, Dorf, and One More to Be Announced

Cornell Law School has made three senior appointments:  Sherry Colb (criminal law and procedure) from Rutgers University, Newark and her husband Michael Dorf (constitutional law and theory) from Columbia University (both of whom will start in fall 2008).  A third senior hire from a peer school has also been made, which I hope to be able to announce soon. 

That's a big and important set of senior hires for the small Cornell faculty!

UPDATE:  Cornell has now announced the third senior hire:  Laura Underkuffler (property, constitutional law) from Duke University.  In addition, I had missed that Cornell also hired (starting this fall) Chantal Thomas (international law and trade) from the University of Minnesota, whom we had the pleasure of having as a visitor here several years ago.
