New VU law dean wants students to chase ideals

By MICHAEL CASS
Staff Writer

Law students could have more incentive to enter their profession's least lucrative jobs after a prominent legal scholar takes charge at Vanderbilt University Law School later this year.

Edward Rubin, a University of Pennsylvania law professor, has been named dean of the Vanderbilt school, the Nashville university will announce today.

Actually that is quite a statement for the school--Vanderbilt grads tend to go into corporate law and get the big bucks, so this is quite impressive that he wants a focus on public interest law. Woo hoo! Go Rubin!

It probably is astounding, but it's not a secret either.

Can you say "snowball's chance in hell?"
Perhaps if they do a scholarship fund for folks who pledge to do this....can you imagine paying back those loans on a public defender job. NO WAY!

They do have a few scholarship things aimed at doing just that, but not enough for many students to go into public interest.

Maybe new dean can mine for the money. I'm sure there are many former Vandy grads interested in promoting public service. Glad I'm not still working in prospect research!  ;)
