Budget crunch in Nevada results in departure of UNLV law faculty

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.
