The Harvard Crimson reports that Harvard Law School is looking for "new blood," caused in part by the failure to land and keep Tax Profs:
- Lily Batchelder (profiled here on TaxProf Blog) chose to join NYU rather than Harvard
- Diane Ring (noted here on TaxProf Blog) left Harvard to accept a tenured position at Florida
According to the Harvard Crimson:
Last year, the Law School launched an effort to add 15 faculty members over a decade, and [Dean] Kagan said Saturday that she hopes to surpass that target. The Law School’s junior faculty on the tenure track dwindled to just five members last spring when two scholars jumped ship for tenured positions at Washington University in St. Louis and a third accepted a full professorship at University of Florida....
Last year, the school did not announce any new entry-level hires....A second offer was rebuffed when Lily L. Batchelder, a tax lawyer and former president of the Kennedy School Student Government, opted to join New York University’s faculty instead.
