We’re not huge fans of this photo of Dean Evan Caminker of the University of Michigan Law School, posted at the WSJ Law Blog:
First, we don’t think it’s the most flattering picture of Dean Caminker. Compare it to the ones collected here (contestant #1). Based on the photo above, you wouldn’t guess that Dean Caminker won our contest for America’s Hottest Law School Dean.
Second, Dean Caminker is wearing a sweatshirt. In sartorial terms, this is a capital crime. If not for the fact that he was forced to wear the sweatshirt, having lost a football bet with Dean Nancy Rogers of Ohio State, we would strip Dean Caminker of his hottie title.
Finally, a bitchy postscript. We have problems with this paragraph from the Law Blog post:
You can call Michigan’s Dean Caminker lots of things: a Yale Law grad, a Supreme Court clerk (Brennan), a Wilmer Cutler alum, a constitutional law scholar. Just don’t call him a welcher!
How can any responsible journalist leave out “America’s Hottest Law School Dean” from this list of titles? It’s a glaring omission (which a Law Blog commenter had to point out). C’mon, Peter, get with the program!
(Would a reference to our hotties contest be deemed too “lowbrow” for the WSJ Law Blog? We doubt it. After all, it’s the blog where we first read about the Emily Pataki bar failure email.)
