Spare a moment of sympathy for the poor folks at FIU Law.
Having just been through a (very successful) relatively painless Dean search here at UM, I know just how awful even the very best search can be. Now imagine having to do the whole thing in public, thanks to Florida's Sunshine Law: PrawfsBlawg: Deans and Sausages: On conducting a dean search in public and correcting the public record.
I'm for open records, but not for the internal workings of (most) personnel matters, if only because it scares away candidates. In this case, it's hard to see what the public benefit is, and easy to see the costs.
