...which you can watch here. And if you'd like to know the truth about what's really going on with Supreme Court nomination battles, read this. (I'm not there, I'm at home working, since the faculty have been thrown out of their offices for the day!)

Outstanding Chicago graduate (who has not been on the teaching market this year) seeking teaching position (tenure-track or VAP) for 2016-17
This individual has an outstanding academic record, has clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court, has fabulous high-level legal experience in the public sector, and extensive teaching experience (and is an excellent teacher). He also has published several articles, including in top law reviews, and has a new job talk paper as well. His areas include administrative law, civil procedure, national security law, federal courts, constitutional law, and criminal law and procedure; he can also teach appellate advocacy, in which he's had substantial experience. His recommenders include Douglas Baird, Lisa Bernstein, Richard Epstein, Jack Goldsmith, Michael McConnell, and David Strauss.
If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can forward his materials and give you more details about the reasons (having to do with prior professional obligations) for his late entry to the market. But this is a fabulous opportunity for a school still able to hire at this late date.

The letter makes a number of very good points. President Napolitano has handled this very badly and unfairly.
