ABA Journal, Michigan Law Dean Makes Almost $458K, Ranks 11th on School’s Pay Scale:

The law school dean at the University of Michigan makes an annual salary of $457,964. That puts Evan Caminker in 11th place among the school's highest-paid employees, after its current business school dean ($550,000), former b-school dean, who remains on the faculty ($448,155), medical school dean ($524,509) and engineering school dean ($470,195), reports

For dean and faculty salaries at Michigan and 18 other public law schools (Arizona State, Florida, George Mason, Illinois, Missouri-Columbia, North Carolina, Ohio State, Rutgers, SUNY-Buffalo, Texas, Texas Tech, UC-Berkeley, UC-Davis, UC-Irvine, UCLA, Virginia, William & Mary, Wisconsin), see here.

Kimberly Krawiec (Duke), Does Anyone Disclose Salary Information If They Don't Have To?:

In the comments, Mark Fenster asks a great question:

It would be interesting to know if any dean in a private law school or in a public which isn't required to disclose salary has chosen to do so, and what kinds of effects that had, especially if previous administrations had not disclosed.

I would also like to know the answer to that.

Private law schools that are tax-exempt would be filing Form 990 and should be disclosing the salary of officers and key employees, as well as the top 5 highest compensated employees. It would seem that there are very few private law schools that aren't required to disclose salary.
