Yale announced today that Robert Post will succeed Harold Koh as Dean of its Law School. I am thrilled to hear the news. I read Post’s book Constitutional Domains: Democracy, Management, Community while I was in college, and it helped convince me to go to law school. During my recent visit at Yale, Post struck me as one of the most intellectually interesting and friendly faculty members. Virtually every student I talked to who worked with him described him as an outstanding mentor.
Many of our readers might be interested in Post’s take on legal scholarship.
