The one that got away

It’s great that Harvard Law School has selected selected a female dean. I’m sure Elana Kagan, who came to the Law School after I graduated, will do an excellent job. But the best person for the job is now in Palo Alto. Kathleen Sullivan left Harvard several years ago for Stanford Law School, where she is now dean. She subsequently recruited Larry Lessig to make the same move, which is an indication of her prowess.
