    It’s not clear that the base Gerard refers to consists of law school faculty. If so, recall the air traffic controllers’ union support of candidate Reagan in 1980 and Pres. Reagan’s treatment of the union in 1981. Et tu, Obama? But seriously, folks, legal education is a serious matter, including its heavy costs. Are faculty jobs/salaries impacted by reform in legal education? Perhaps this post reflects mere NIMBY-osis. Back to more important things, like why isn’t John Bingham getting the same respect as Thomas Jefferson?

    FYI: the comments section from Frank’s recent post isn’t working…

    Peter, it still isn’t working. Perhaps the assumption can be made that Frank does not want comments. If that were the case, then Frank could have said so.
