A 35-year-old tax law scholar who joined Columbia Law School's faculty in 1998 has been selected as the school's new dean. David W. Schizer is the youngest of a quartet of professors recently promoted to head the Northeast's top law schools: Columbia Law, New York University School of Law, Yale Law School and Harvard Law School. Schizer -- known for his wry humor -- replaces David Lebron, who has accepted the presidency of Rice University.
