Fordham University School of Law announced yesterday that Professor Michael Martin, who has been serving as interim dean since the departure of Dean Bill Treanor, has been named permanent dean. This will no doubt raise a few eyebrows because Martin was not one of the three finalists forwarded to the university administration. Indeed, Martin was not a candidate for the deanship. My understanding is that one finalist was offered, and declined, the deanship.
