Chemerinsky is an outspoken liberal law professor at Duke University.

September 17, 2007: Re-appointed as dean of UC Irvine's future law school. UCI Chancellor Michael V. Drake, who had initially appointed Chemerinsky, withdrew the offer a week before. The controversial move generated criticism for Drake when reports surfaced that he received pressure from prominent Orange and Los Angeles Republicans to rescind the appointment because of Chemerinsky's outspoken liberal views. Drake denies that he withdrew the offer because of Chemerinsky's politics, but instead because of his polarizing approach.

The future UCI Donald Bren School of Law is planed to open in 2009.
