You can’t throw a stone around President-Elect Joe Biden’s transition teams without hitting a law professor.

Legal academics are playing key roles on the so-called “agency review teams” Biden announced this month as he gets ready to move into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Unsurprisingly, law professors are heavily represented on Biden’s Department of Justice transition team, occupying seven of the 29 slots. But legal educators are also particularly prominent on the Department of Interior transition team, which is being headed up by  University of Iowa College of Law Dean Kevin Washburn.

Nearly half of that transition team’s members hail from law schools.
