What wonderful news. I took Judge Ginsburg’s “Readings in Legal Thought” seminar when I was at GMU, and it was one of the highlights of my legal education. I only realized years later how influential that class was. What a coup for GMU:
Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg will join the George Mason law faculty as professor of law beginning in July of 2013. Judge Ginsburg, who is currently a professor of law at New York University School of Law, will continue also to serve as senior circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
“It’s an honor and delight to welcome Judge Ginsburg back to George Mason,” said Dean Daniel Polsby. “He is a teacher of long experience and matchless depth who understands his subjects from both practical and theoretical perspectives. Our students could not have a better teacher, and we could not have a better colleague.”
