Open Thread for ATL's Recent Post: "How Much Does Your Law Prof. Make? Berkeley Edition."

There have been some rumblings. Some commentary. Some hashing out over social media. Here is an open thread.

If you haven't seen it, the article is here and links to a corresponding more detailed list here.

Can someone explain what the formula is for this? It doesn't seem to be primarily seniority or class load. Publishing success?

Also fwiw I'd imagine that most of Au*rbach's salary is paid by the econ department.

Free Market; I believe they pay whatever they need to pay to attract and retain faculty in the face of competing bids from other schools. As far as I know there is not a lockstep pay structure.

Class load is probably inversely correlated with pay, since giving people a reduced teaching load is one of the tools the Dean can use to retain people...

My Name is Cosmo Miller and I am the Affiliate Manager at James Publishing’s affiliate program currently managed by Commission Junction.

James Publishing has become one of the best sources for practice-oriented law books in the legal service industry. Over the decades we have encouraged our authors to load their books with time-saving motions and pleadings, client letters, and step-by-step procedural checklists. We have also sought heavy doses of pattern arguments, model questions, pitfalls to avoid, and practice tips. You can find out more about our catalog by visiting us at:

Your website caters to traffic that is complementary to us, yet not in direct competition. I wanted to take a moment to reach out regarding an opportunity for us to partner up, whereby you’d be earning commissions on sales your referrals made through an affiliate link on your website.

The commission earnings start from 25 percent and go up depending on your performance.
If you join our affiliate program, and put up any two of our promotional materials in your website by 20th May 2013, I will increase your default commission level from 25 percent to 27 percent.

To join (or learn more about) our program you may fill out the application here
If you’re not ready to join the affiliate program right away, I would still love to hear back from you: to see how/if we can still work together.
I am looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards,
Cosmo Miller/Affiliate Manager

I love that Sklansky's salary is 187k. That's gotta be in his contract.
