Duke Law School professor Erwin Chemerinsky has accepted an offer to become the new dean of the University of California, Irvine’s law school six days after Chancellor Michael Drake abruptly rescinded a similar offer amid political sensitivities.

In a joint statement issued Monday morning, Drake and Chemerinsky said: “We resolved to put recent events behind us and immediately begin to focus on our shared vision of creating a law school dedicated to providing the best education for future lawyers, to producing the finest legal scholarship, and to helping to address the legal needs of Orange County and the nation. The law school, like all great educational institutions, will be a place of great diversity, where differing viewpoints are nurtured, debated and cherished.”
