    Hi larry
    Interesting post – I do agree that there is a slowdown for laterals. But the FL list is inaccurate. I know of three schools with moves that aren’t listed – not including Temple, which has two hires not listed.

    Dave:

    Don’t keep secrets! Send the info over to Dan for posting at FL!

    Maryland has two as well!

  4. Lawrence Cunningham says:

    Danielle: Please pass on details to Dan at FL. All others aware of lateral moves not yet noted at FL please do the same. Will update this post in due course.

    Georgetown’s annual study of the legal profession confirms enormous overcapacity.* It would therefore be totally irrational for any law school to add faculty. That explains much of the decline in lateral moves reported. To the extent that some schools have hired anyway, that may explain why they have not reported doing so publicly.
