I was recently named Chair of the Faculty Appointments Committee at Vermont Law School by the school's Dean and President, Jeff Shields. I'm excited and honored by this opportunity. Our committee has several other blogging professors, including Professors Jason Czarnezki of Life, Law, and the Environment, Stephanie Farrior of IntLawGrrls, Oliver Goodenough of The Huffington Post, and Cheryl Hanna of Vermont Public Radio. If you think you might have interest in applying for a faculty position at our school, here is our appointments listing:
