As this article indicates, economic tough times at law schools has shrunk the capacity of law schools to hire new faculty. Bucking this trend, we are hard at work in recruiting excellent new teachers and scholars. Hiring terrific young faculty members is critical to our success — in our curriculum and in our research profile. Even in the face of difficult resources dilemmas, we will keep as a priority faculty recruitment. We have always looked to bring the best and brightest to our faculty. We will be equally ambitious in the present and the future!
