Brian Galle Leaves Florida State for Boston College

Galle Brian Galle (Florida State) has accepted a lateral offer from Boston College.  This is quite a coup for BC -- Brian is an incredibly talented and prolific young tax scholar, with a dozen major pieces in just four years in the academy.  He has visited at Georgetown and George Washington.  Brian joins a very strong tax faculty at BC (Hugh Ault, Ray Madoff, Jim Repetti, and Diane Ring) -- BC ranks 23rd in the latest U.S. News Tax Rankings (10th among law schools without a graduate tax program).

I can confirm the accuracy of the first, third, and fourth sentences of this post. The second seems dubious to me, but I guess reasonable minds may differ.

I'm not convinced that anyone, even Brian Galle, can write 12 really top-flight pieces in their first four years. I am afraid we are pushing our younger scholars to write so much so fast that something gets lost on the way. Brian appears to be smart enough that it won't hurt him much, but in some cases I wonder.
