Dear Dean Chemerinsky:
At your earliest convenience, I would appreciate if you would correct inaccurate information listed on UCI School of Law’s website. In addition, I ask that you and the law school reconsider having Senator Joe Dunn serve on your “Advisory Council.”
Specifically, the information that needs to be corrected is located on the school’s website http://www.law.uci.edu/development/deans_advisory_council.html , and is inaccurate, misleading, and outdated:
1. Stephen G. Larson—judge, United States District Court for the Central District of California, Riverside, Calif.
2. Joe Dunn—chief executive officer, California Medical Association, Sacramento, Calif.
In addition, with respect to Senator Dunn, I believe it is improper for him to serve on UCI’s “Advisory Council” in a formal fashion because this creates the impression that the State Bar of California favors your law school, as opposed to other law schools, and especially due to your own position with Senator Dunn’s publication — Voice of OC.
Given Senator Dunn’s reputation as a gentleman, I am sure that, should the need arise, he would be willing to offer his input on an informal basis.
Senator Dunn’s continuing involvement with the UCI Foundation, on the other hand, is extremely troubling given his position with the State Bar, and I urge you to discuss this matter with him.
Thank you for your time.

“You are right, of course, that we need to update the information on the website concerning the current positions of Stephen Larson and Joe Dunn. More generally, we need to update the listing of the members of our Advisory Council.
However, I do not believe that there is anything inappropriate with Mr. Dunn being a member of this body which has no decision-making role and exists, as its title says, to offer advice.
Thanks for writing.
