The Las Vegas Sun ran a story today reporting the departure of at least three professors from William S. Boyd School of Law, including legal writing Prof and a friend of this blog, Michael Higdon, due to a proposed 36% cut in state funding for higher education. Ouch!
Professor Higdon will be leaving for University of Tennessee School of Law to be closer to family according to the paper.
FWIW - we went through the same thing at University of Colorado in 2003 when the state legislature was forced to slash educational funding to comply with a constitutionally mandated balanced budget amendment.
Just like CU did then, UNLV will come through with flying colors.
Hat tip to the ABA Journal blog.
I am the scholarship dude.
