Yale Makes Offer to Michigan's Shapiro

Yale Law School has voted out an offer to my old friend Scott Shapiro (legal philosophy, philosophy of action), who is Professor of Law and Philosophy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.  Students thinking about JD/PhD programs should keep an eye on what happens here:  Shapiro's departure will be a big blow for Michigan on this score, and a significant boost for Yale, whose Philosophy Department has also made a number of strong appointments in recent years.  (For the benefit of law readers:  while Yale Law School has long had a dominant position in legal academia, Yale Philosophy has had many ups and downs, though is now solidly among the top 15 programs in the US.)
