Law School Dean Developments, 'Dean Developments': Several Deans Move Long Distance:

There may be a calm before the storm with only three dean changes within the past month, but June and July are prime time for dean moves.

The University of Buffalo School of Law has named a permanent dean [S. Todd Brown], as its former dean [Aviva Abramovsky] heads to Idaho. Meanwhile, an Albany Law School professor [Alicia Ouellette] is moving to the West Coast to take on a new role as dean.

Plus, the New York University School of Law has launched a new lab focusing on environmental justice, and Paul Caron celebrates 20 years of publishing the TaxProf Blog. ...

On April 15, Paul Caron, who has been the Duane and Kelly Roberts Dean of Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law since June 2017, celebrated 20 years of publishing his TaxProf Blog.

“It has been a wonderful ride, professionally, personally and spiritually, these past 20 years,” Caron wrote in a recent blog post, adding that he has written more than 52,000 posts with his blog receiving more then 200 million page views.

“The blog played a role in my selection as dean in 2017,” Caron wrote. “I may be the only dean in America with a contract provision encouraging me to continue to blog!”

Caron doesn’t foresee the blog going for another 20 years; in fact, he said, “I’m not sure how much longer I will keep TaxProf Blog going,” but said he is grateful for his loyal followers.
