Letters to a New Dean

Over at TaxProf, Paul Caron and Bill Henderson are soliciting advice for Erwin Chemerinsky as he embarks on the task of developing a new law school. They write:

The hiring, firing, and re-hiring of Erwin Chemerinsky as founding dean of the new UC-Irvine law school has attracted enormous national attention. . . . Bill Henderson and I want to use this moment in time to generate and publicize the best ideas about reforming legal education from some of the leading thinkers in the law school world. Next week, TaxProf Blog will begin posting the answers of university presidents and provosts, and law school deans, faculty, students, and career planning professionals, to this question:

What is the single best idea for reforming legal education you would offer to Erwin Chemerinsky as he builds the law school at UC-Irvine?

Each contribution will be limited to no more than 250 words.

Thus far, Paul Caron (Cincinnati), Bill Henderson (Indiana), Paul Butler (GW), and Mark Herrmann (partner, Jones Day) have contributed.
