Law School Dean Searches - Final Update

I've posted my final update to this year's dean search list here.  There were roughly 25 searches by existing law schools, which suggests that the oft repeated rule of thumb - the average law dean lasts five years - is probably a canard.  Based on this year, at least, that the average tenure appears more like eight years and this seems about right to me.
