Some of these people started at UCLA in 2004 (Schill, Netanel) so they have fat one-time moving bonuses packed into their compensation. It makes me think I should start indexing my teaching evals to salary. “The class was pretty good, but considering how much we pay this dude, I expected nicer Powerpoint slides.”
If you want to know what all the other law professors make, here’s the law faculty pay scale.
Now, law professors are somewhat fond of griping about their salaries in relation to the expected earnings of the 25-year-olds entering big law firms each year. To this I say: all of you seem to severely discount the value of tenure.
The big firm associate gets paid well, but he’s likely to get burned out & quit long before his 7th year, and trade down to a more enjoyable (but less lucrative) job.
Whereas the tenured professor gets to collect her salary every year ... not subject to performance reviews ... forever. No questions asked. Plus, there seem to be pretty liberal policies supporting extracurricular consulting and teaching very little certain semesters (like, zero). Most people in America would call this a sweet deal.
So the next time you hear the whining of tenured professors, raise your hand and say: Boo. Fuckin. Hoo. Baby.

The eagle has landed
Seduced by the dark side
You've been in law school too long when...
I have only five more class days
The lone gunman
The last spring break is over
Someone saved your life tonight
Dean Schill & the Pussymobile
Help me yet again
