It gives me great honor, nay joy, to announce that my co-blogger, co-author, and all-around-good-guy Jeff Hirsch will be lateralling to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill starting this Fall. In celebration of getting Jeff to come to UNC, the men's basketball team beat Duke last night.
Jeff joined the University of Tennessee law faculty in August 2004 after working in the Appellate Court Branch of the National Labor Relations Board in Washington, D.C. and serving as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Haldane R. Mayer on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the Honorable Robert R. Beezer on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
His scholarship has been published in numerous law journals, including those at Boston College, Florida State, Fordham, George Washington, and Maryland; his essays have been published in the online journals at Virginia and Yale. He also is the co-author of two books with moi, one on employment law and the other on employment discrimination law. A third one, on labor law, is due out next year.
Jeff is the immediate past Chair of the Southeastern Association of Law Schools’ New Scholars Committee. He is also a Research Fellow and Recent Graduate Advisor at the New York University Center for Labor and Employment Law, and is admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second, Third, Fourth Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Ninth, D.C., and Federal Circuits.
Congrats, Jeff. UNC is lucky to have you.
