Seton Hall Law has rescinded last summer’s termination notices to all its untenured law faculty. On ATL, David Lat reports
Word on the street is that [Seton Hall Law] did so by finding enough senior faculty to either retire or move into a quasi-retirement, in which they keep their offices, continue to teach (at a reduced level), and continued to draw a paycheck (at a reduced level). Much remains unchanged when a professor enters this state, but the savings that can be realized from transitioning a senior tenured professor to a more flexible arrangement are substantial. We understand that the school will have reached deals with about a dozen or so faculty members when all is said and done.
Lat also reports Seton Hall hopes to be “rightsized” by the 2017 academic year. For details see his Law School Rightsizing: This Is How You Do It on ATL.
