More Budgetary Troubles at Harvard Law School

MOVING TO FRONT FROM DECEMBER 1--SEE UPDATE

The Kagan years are clearly over.  One can hear the sigh of relief in New Haven...

UPDATE:  At least one knowledgeable reader (not at Harvard) read this to imply that Harvard would not be facing a budgetary crunch if Elena Kagan had stayed.  That certainly wasn't the point.  "The Kagan years" simply referred to the period of lavish (and perhaps excessive) spending during Dean Kagan's tenure that permitted Harvard to recruit a lot of faculty.  That, along with a major building project for which the funding was not in place, no doubt contributed mightily to the financial difficulties Dean Minow has now inherited.
