Is anyone else mildly disturbed that a lot of the profs we've heard last years 1L's rave about are going to be elsewhere next year? I wonder if its going to be for full years or just semesters...http://leiterlawschool.typepad.com/leiter/2008/07/visiting-profes.html

I wonder if its going to be for full years or just semesters...http://leiterlawschool.typepad.com/leiter/2008/07/visiting-profes.htmlI know Samaha and Gersen were listed as visiting for the full year on one of the other blogs. The one I'm really interested to know about is Lior.In any case, the 1L prof layout is going to look quite a bit different next year. Potentially no Gersen, Sunstein, Samaha, E. Pos, Lior, or Cox? Wow.
As far as I know, Gersen will be gone only in the Spring; stands to reason that the others might be in Chicago for certain quarters.
Any idea how we might confirm which semesters each professor will be visiting elsewhere? I thought about calling the law school, but I don't know whether that's frowned upon for this particular issue..
UPDATE (5:30 pm July 16): Just to be clear--since several folks have e-mailed about this--not every visit, below, is for the entire academic year; indeed, my guess is at least half are not, meaning students can expect many of these faculty to *also* be teaching at their home institution. In the case of HLS, many of the visitors come in the Winter Term, i.e., just the month of January.
We current students may be a little tentative on doing that, for fear that she'll LawAnnounce our email.
