Hiring Chairs 2010-2011: Please Announce Yourselves

N.B. This will get bumped to the front every now and then, and schools should feel free to update if they have changes in the makeup of the app-comm of their school (as FSU does, starting now).

It's that time again. I've been getting  requests from some aspiring prawfs, so here's the post: law school hiring chairs for entry and lateral candidates, please announce yourselves in the comments and please feel free to share who's on the committee and whether the search is limited in a particular way (or not).

To get things started, FSU has two new committees for 2011: the laterals committee is headed by Robin Craig (and includes Kelli Alces, Joseph Dodge, Dave Markell and Nat Stern) and the rookies committee is headed by Rob Atkinson (and includes Shawn Bayern and Beth Burch). We continue to be interested in a wide number of areas.
