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.
