Hello New England Law School profs: Take the buyout or you will be working your ass off next year

Sounds like New England Law School administration has found a novel hardball way to downsize faculty ranks. The title of Blog Emperor Caron’s post explains the School’s plans in a nutshell: New England Law Faculty Face 8-Course Teaching Loads, Mandatory Office Presence (M-F, 9-5) Unless 35% Accept Buyouts. Yikes, that sounds like the four letter word most feared in the legal academy — W O R K. Apparently tenured and junior profs targeted for buyouts will have to work such grueling hours if they do not accept the buyouts being offered before start of the 2014 academic year.
