Moran to UCLA?

Moving this post up in light of UCLA announcement regarding Moran's appointment.  For Professor Moran's quotes from Torts in Fall 2004, see here and here.

***

The Daily Journal is reporting (subs required) that our very own Rachel Moran has been offered the deanship of UCLA's Law School:
Rachel F. Moran, a longtime professor at UC Berkeley School of Law, who took a leave of absence to help found the new law school at UC Irvine, has been offered the position of dean at UCLA School of Law, according to sources close to the selection process.

Moran, 53, a Yale Law School graduate, is known by colleagues as a dedicated scholar with high expectations for herself and others.

A Latina from Yuma, Ariz., Moran has taught torts and education and law at both UC Irvine and Berkeley, where she's been on the faculty since 1983. 
Obviously this is both terrible and fantastic news.  I realize the current crop of rising 2Ls have not experienced the pure terror of a Moran review session and so the announcement may ring hollow.  But trust me, this would be Berkeley's loss.  I suppose it's payback for Sklansky, Lester, and a few others we poached from Westwood.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think the classes of 2010 or 2011 know who Professor Moran is, either.

That is truly a loss. The three straight days of "Mr. R?" in Fall 2004 are likely burned forever into '07 Mod 7-9's collective memory.

I don't think anyone the class of 2010 who had the privilege of being in Mod 5 will ever forget her - her review session triggered the improbable and sincere question of whether we would could bring a calculator with us to the final exam.
