University of Illinois Law School Faculty Blog -- Welcome to the Blawgosphere! (And link to Rob Kar on the Salaita Controversy)
Posted by Christine Hurt

So, I guess the Illinois law faculty was just waiting for me to leave to start a blog!  Congratulations on their new arrival, which promises to be very interesting and informative.  The first post I read was definitely link-worthy.  My friend and former colleague Rob Kar writes on another Urbana-Champaign development that I am out-of-the-loop regarding:  the non-hiring of Steven Salaita.  The Salaita affair has drawn a lot of writing from First Amendment/Academic Freedom quarters, but Rob analyzes it from a contract law perspective.  Good reading!

 

UPDATE:  In finally getting a chance to do some blog-browsing today, I notice that Dave Hoffman has also been thinking about the contracts angle to this case.  Here and here and here.
