Fred McChesney from Northwestern to Miami

Fred McChesney is leaving Northwestern (where he is Haddad Professor of Law) for a chair at the University of Miami (HT: Leiter).   As Leiter notes, this is a major pickup for Miami.  McChesney is a first-rate scholar and has done pioneering work in law and economics, public choice, corporate law, and antitrust.   With more and more specialization in law and economics, the number of scholars who make significant contributions using economic theory, empirical work, and understanding of legal institutions is falling over time.  Fred does it all.  And he does it remarkably well.  Congratulations to both Fred and Miami.
