Tax Prof David Schizer is stepping down after ten years as Dean of Columbia Law School. Al Brophy (North Carolina) notes:
[M]y sense -- gathered
from afar -- is that Schizer has been incredibly good for the law
school. I've heard about his dedication to helping students find jobs,
to helping/encouraging faculty to do great work in the classroom and in
their research and service, and to expanding Columbia's engagement with
the legal community.
David has been the rare Dean who has maintained an active scholarly profile during his deanship:
David continues to be ranked among the most-cited and most-downloaded tax faculty.
