National Jurist's 25 most influential people in legal education

The National Jurist has named its 25 finalists for the title of the most influential person in legal education. I am honored and humbled to have been named as a finalist.

These are the finalists, in alphabetical order:

  • Catherine Carpenter, Professor, Southwestern Law School
  • Paul Campos, Professor, University of Colorado Law School
  • Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean, University of California Irvine School of Law
  • Jim Chen
  • Hiram Chodosh, Dean, University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
  • The Faculty of Washington and Lee School of Law
  • Bryant Garth, Dean Emeritus and Professor, Southwestern Law School
  • John Garvey, Professor, University of New Hampshire School of Law
  • Claudio Grossman, Dean, American University Washington College of Law
  • Phoebe Haddon, Dean, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
  • William Henderson, Professor, Indiana University Maurer School of Law – Bloomington
  • Kevin Johnson, Dean, University of California Davis School of Law
  • David Levi, Dean, Duke University School of Law

  • Philip Weiser, Dean, University of Colorado Law School
  • Frank H. Wu, Chancellor & Dean, University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Update: Paul Caron of the Tax Law Prof Blog has provided coverage of this list. For me, the honor of being named to this list closes a circle that began when the National Jurist quoted me in an article on change in legal education — like its glacial equivalent, slow to progress but inexorable and epochal in its eventual effect. I do hope to live long enough to see the triumph of reform over reaction.
