The first of Yale Law’s new professors will start teaching in the spring.
The school announced Friday that the new law school professor, Eric T. Lichtman, will begin teaching in April and will teach at the school from June 1 to October 1.
“Yale Law has a long and distinguished history of advancing the cause of justice, and this is just the first of many changes coming as the law school prepares to open new chapters in the area of law and justice,” said Robert B. Reich, president of the University of California.
The law school also added another new professor, Lior Salzman, who will start working with students in fall 2018.
The university said in a statement that the faculty of the law schools, which will be called the Law School of the Future, will be named in time for the 2019-2020 academic year.
