Student Townhall Meeting with Dean Dobranski

Tomorrow, Tuesday at 12:15 p.m., there will be a townhall meeting between Dean Dobranski and returning 2Ls and 3Ls.

Here are some possible things to ask Dean Dobranski about. I'd be interested in hearing more about the reported comment made at the 1L meeting about the Board of Governors possibly going ahead with the move even if that meant a threat to accreditation. Also, it would be nice to hear why Pucillo and Lyons were placed on leave instead of retained as faculty and why Safranek's pay was suspended -- heck, it would be nice to hear why Safranek, Pucillo, and Lyons were fired in the first place. Oh, and I wonder what the Dean thinks of the petition for reinstatement signed by a majority of alumni and by a lot of current 2Ls and 3Ls. And how about more details on the ABA investigation, and how many of the 29 Class of 2009 transferrees over the summer were from the top 20% of the class?

Those who are in attendance, please give us the details of the meeting in the comments later. Or maybe post some live-blogging of the event? Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: Today, at the opening of AMU, Monaghan called those AMC faculty who opposed the move to Florida "academic terrorists." I'd be interested in hearing whether the Dean thinks that characterization fits the current law school faculty.
