Ten lateral moves that made law professors take notice during 2018-19

Based on my in-box and conversations with others, these were the ten moves this past year that were thought to be the biggest hiring coups (I omit any lateral moves my school was part of!):

 

*Albert Choi (law & economics, contracts, corporate) from the University of Virginia to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

 

*Danielle Citron (privacy, civil rights, freedom of expression, Internet law) from the University of Maryland to Boston University.

 

*G. Marcus Cole (bankruptcy, law & economics) from Stanford University to the University of Notre Dame (to become Dean).

 

*Jonah Gelbach (law & economics, civil procedure, empirical legal studies) from the University of Pennsylvania to the University of California, Berkeley.

 

*David Grewal (international trade, law & technology, political economy, political theory) from Yale University to the University of California, Berkeley.

 

*Orin Kerr (criminal procedure, computer crime law) from the University of Southern California to the University of California, Berkeley.

 

*Catherine Kim (civil procedure, administrative and immigration law) from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill to Brooklyn Law School.

 

*David S. Law (comparative constitutional law, law & social science) from Washington University, St. Louis to the University of California, Irvine.

 

*Rachel Moran (education law, civil rights, race & the law) from the University of California, Los Angeles to the University of California, Irvine.

*Patricia J. Williams (critical race theory, civil rights) from Columbia University to Northeastern University.
