More on the Firing of DePaul's Law Dean

We posted previously on the unbelievably stupid decision by DePaul University´s Provost to fire DePaul Law School Dean Glen Weissenberger.  Click here and here to read our previous posts on that.

DePaul University announced that Illinois Appellate Court Justice Warren Wolfson would be the interim dean, starting August 15.  Click here to read our post about that.

Brian Leiter writes in his blog today that in his twenty years of legal education experience that he has never seen any law school treated as badly by its central university administration as has DePaul. Leiter advised Justice Wolfson to do a bit of housekeeping as Dean and then resign and encourage DePaul to reinstate Dean Weissenberger.  If he doesn't do that, Professor Leiter suspects he would spend most of next year bidding farewell to members of the DePaul faculty.  Click here to read more.
