Two Tax Profs Are Among Ten Florida Dean Finalists

Florida Logo (GIF)Following up on Thursday's post, Florida Dean Candidates Include Four Tax Profs:  two Tax Profs are among the 10 finalists to replace outgoing dean Robert Jerry:

For a detailed discussion of the finalists, see here:

Guided by a high-minded set of criteria, the search committee charged with finding the next dean for the University of Florida Levin College of Law settled on an eclectic list of 10 candidates from a list of nearly two dozen who put in for the job.

The candidates will be brought to Gainesville for 75-minute interviews at the University of Florida Hilton on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, said Glenn Good, the dean of the College of Education and chairman of the search committee. ...

The committee members spoke enthusiastically of one African-American candidate — David Brennen, a UF law school graduate who was deputy director of the Association of American Law Schools for two years before becoming dean of the University of Kentucky School of Law.

“If David doesn’t take this job, he will wind up with a comparable law school job,” George Dawson, director of the law college summer program, said of his former student. “He has a good background and is very capable. He has some writing in the tax field, and two years … at the AALS, which is one of the few positions that gives you a broad view of legal education.”

Lyrissa Lidsky said she was also impressed with Brennen. If anyone has the whole package, he has the whole package of skills we are looking for,” she said.

With all due respect to Prof. Dawson, Dean Brennen already HAS a comparable law school job.
