The Off-Again On-Again Dean at UC Irvine

Hosted by

UC Irvine’s “new law school will be founded on the bedrock principle of academic freedom.”  That’s according to Chancellor Michael Drake and Erwin Chemerinsky - who was hired as the founding dean of the law school on Labor Day, then let go last week. A UCI professor gathered 633 signatures protesting the action, and the national outcry included an editorial in the New York Times.  Today, Chemerinksy was hired again and he accepted.
