Does Steve McAllister, Kansas University law school dean, get paid for being state solicitor? And is his pay being reduced at KU because he's not full time?

McAllister said: "First, the state solicitor position is not a salaried position. I could not assume that role if it was, since I can only be on the state payroll for one entity at a time. The position is basically a title and responsibilities, though I sometimes get paid for work on particular cases on a contractual basis."

"Second, KU permits consulting up to the equivalent of 20 percent of a faculty member's time (one day per week on average) so long as such consulting furthers the faculty member's teaching and research."
