FAR and Away

I couldn’t resist using this
double entendre for the title of this post, considering that it concerns law faculty hiring and a bidding of farewell. Thanks so much to everyone at Prawfs for having me on for a second visit. It’s been fun, and an honor.  Since CNN listed college professors as a top job earlier this year, I thought I would end my stint with another topic that’s tangentially related to faculty job searches – the use of social media. There are many examples of articles that provide advice about this topic, but one cannot help but wonder how blogging is perceived by decision-makers in law faculty hiring. So, my question for the day is, how is blogging viewed by law faculties as they consider candidates?

I have to confess I've seen older professors sneer at it.

It's pretty much the only thing that matters, I believe.
