ABA Journal, Popular Blogger and Scholar Tapped as Pepperdine Law Dean; He Plans to Keep Blogging:
Paul L. Caron, a professor at Pepperdine School of Law, has been selected as its new dean. The tax law scholar also blogs at TaxProf Blog, and owns and publishes the Law Professor Blogs Network.
Besides tax matters, the Tax Prof Blog also has many posts on various challenges in legal education. In 2016, National Jurist named Caron the third most influential person in legal education.
Caron has not shied away from posting about controversial topics in legal education, including bar passage rates in California and elsewhere. When asked if he plans to continue blogging as dean, Caron said yes.
“I plan to keep TaxProf Blog a vital hub for tax and legal education news by bringing aboard a number of other law professors and deans to blog in each of these areas, like the Volokh Conspiracy,” he told the ABA Journal.
