These are non-clinical appointments that will take effect in 2020 (except where noted); I will move the list to the front at various intervals as new additions come in. (Recent additions are in bold.) Last year's list is here. Feel free to e-mail me with news of additions to this list.
Although this is a list of lateral moves, as a point of personal privilege I'd like to report a lateral stay: it gives me particular pleasure to note that my colleague William Baude (constitutional law and theory) has turned down the offers from Harvard and Stanford Law Schools to remain with us. With the addition of Ryan Doerfler (law & philosophy, legislation) from Penn last year, as well as existing faculty (like Martha Nussbaum and David Strauss), I feel confident that Chicago now has the strongest philosophically-minded group of public law scholars in the nation.
