My Blogging


IMG_0362

I am a co-editor on two law-related blogs, The Legal Whiteboard and Legal Profession Blog, and a frequent guest on others, including PrawfsBlawg, Conglomerate, Concurring Opinions, and Faculty Lounge.

Blogging is a relatively recent addition to the scholarly oeuvre and sits somewhere between Facebook updates and full-length articles and essays.  I’ve often wrestled there with the germ of an idea that becomes an essay or article.  Here are some links to blog posts that, in retrospect, I’m glad I wrote:
