Good News from Legal Academia

I am pleased to pass along this morning's announcement from the President of Harvard University naming Prof. John Manning as the new Dean at Harvard Law, effective July 1.  As you will see, it would hard to find anyone with more outstanding credentials to lead one of the Big Three law schools.  I thought these two paragraphs in the announcement were particularly noteworthy:

Early in his career, in addition to his service in the Justice Department, Manning was an associate in the Washington office of the law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. He served as a law clerk to both Associate Justice Antonin Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court and Judge Robert H. Bork of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

John's service at DOJ consisted of a stint during the Reagan years in the Office of Legal Counsel, then under George H.W. Bush in the Solicitor General's Office.

John is listed as an expert on the registry of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Federalist Society.
