Who gave the best advice to Dean Erwin Chemerinsky?

Over at TaxProf here, Paul Caron has assembled all forty of the provocative responses he got to this question:

What is the single best idea for reforming legal education you would offer to Erwin Chemerinsky as he builds the law school at UC-Irvine?

I would be interested to hear LSI reader responses to all this unsolicited advice for the new Dean, and I would be especially grateful to hear from anyone who identified any enduring themes in all this advice.

Lots of advice, some of it rather contradictory. It's a tough genre to work in--250 words or less.

I particularly liked Oppenheimer's kaleidoscope curriculum; hard to implement, but would be great fun and helpful to students approaching all of this for the first time. Probably would be a real blast to teach that way, too and wouldn't surprise me if we'd see a lot of things differently as faculty as well. Leiter, too, obviously, has very sound advice on how to generate a great faculty.
