Yale seeks new lawyer

On Wednesday, University President Peter Salovey solicited nominations and applications for the replacement for longtime Vice President and General Counsel Dorothy Robinson. The University general counsel is Yale’s top lawyer.

A document attached to Salovey’s email outlined several requirements for the position. In addition to possessing a law degree, the applicant should have “the highest ethical and moral standards and impeccable judgement.” In other words, being a good person.

The document also noted that maturity, self-awareness, organization and a “sense of humor” are major pluses.

The search for Robinson’s replacement is being conducted by SpencerStuart, an executive search and leadership consulting firm.

Nominations can be sent to YaleGeneralCounsel@spencerstuart.com. No humorless, immature, amoral attorneys need apply.
