Agents and authority

Any of my students from my basic corporations class will tell you that I spend an inordinate amount of time at the beginning of every semester on issues of agency. Agency is a course that has fallen out of fashion in law schools.  That's too bad.  It's really important.  In any event, I use agency because it helps students develop the vocabulary and the intuitions that will become important when we turn to the corporate law.  In any event, all of this is to lead into the follow link to Above the Law.  Now, much as I enjoy the legal gossip on ATL, I don't link to it much.  But, I am happy to break that informal rule today.  Why?  Well, because there is an exam-worthy example of agency there today:  A 3L at Indiana's Mauer School of Law was named "Interim Director of Admissions" or was he?  I'm definitely going to use this example in class next year.  Who could make these facts up?!
