Five New JD/PhDs in Philosophy Accept Tenure-Track Jobs in U.S. Law Schools
I was pleased to see the strong representation for law-and-philosophy typesin Solum's initial listing of junior hiring by U.S. law schools; indeed, it looks like the PhD in philosophy dominates all other disciplines among the JD/PhDs in the pool so far! The new hires are:
Brooklyn Law School: Brian Lee (JD Yale 2008, PhD Princeton 1999).
Louisiana State University: Ken Levy (JD Columbia 2002, PhD Rutgers 1999).
Saint Louis University: Chad Flanders (JD Yale 2007, PhD Chicago 2004).
Southwestern University: Caleb Mason (JD Georgetown 2005, PhD Columbia 2001).
Villanova University: Michelle Madden Dempsey (JD Michigan 1996, DPhil [Jurisprudence] Oxford 2008).
It does not appear that any of the new hires are products of JD/PhD programs, and I don't know how central law-and-philosophy work is for all these newly appointed faculty (though I know it is important for several of them).
Congratulations to all!
Great to see.
