Jack Boger will become the new dean of the University of North Carolina School of Law on July 1, bringing a yearlong search process to an end. Boger, a UNC law alumnus and 16-year professor at the school, was on the search committee until declaring his candidacy after the school’s top choice, Duke law professor Erwin Chemerinsky, declined the position. In addition, the university announced that it would give an additional $2 million a year to the law school, a decision made following Chemerinsky’s indication that he declined the position because of a lack of adequate resources. Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, started in 1928, has gained provisional approval from the American Bar Association. As a result, students who graduate from the school will now be able to practice law in any state, provided that they pass the state’s bar exam. In addition, the Alabama school now believes that it can compete more successfully with the University of Alabama School of Law and Samford University Cumberland School of Law, the only other accredited law schools in the state. The school now has two to five years to become self-supporting and improve entrance standards in order to keep its accreditation. Law School Movers is compiled and written by Leigh Jones.
