Lessig to Harvard:
We don't normally post individual law school hires, but this one seems worth noting: Larry Lessig is going back to Harvard.

Congratulations to Prof. Lessig! The Farm and Silicon Valley generally will be missing him though.

But will the slithy toves continue to gyre and gimble in the wabe?

Great. Yet further concentration of academic talent in the Harvard hive.

Does this strike you as problematic, at all? Or do you spend your time dreaming of your own ascension into the Holy Trinity? Do you think that a focus on prestigious faculty hires and growing the faculty (and, presumably, growing the student body) will have an adverse or beneficial effect on the quality of teaching or scholarship at Harvard?

Looks like Dean Kagan just buffed her resume for a SCOTUS nomination.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
