The impetus Saturday was the suspension of Robert Stacy McCain’s account (@rsmccain). McCain blogs at TheOtherMcCain.com and last February published a book, Sex Trouble: Essays on Radical Feminism and the War Against...
Did you know that we had a Tip Line?
The Tip Line was originally intended to be a, um, tip line where we could receive, um, tips on news and other stories. It has been with us pretty much since we moved to self-hosting in June 2011.
There was a link in the...
Last night, for reasons unrelated to this post, I was looking back at the posts from when former Cornell undergrad Kathleen McCaffrey joined (November 2010) and then departed (May 2012) Legal Insurrection.

I was at a wedding in Arizona tonight when longtime Legal Insurrection reader Carol from Kansas came up to me to introduce herself.
She reads Legal Insurrection every day, and has helped spread the link!
Total coincidence that we were at the same wedding and I’m glad she put two and two...
When Professor Jacobson suggested I put together a “Top 5” post, I thought it would be easy peasy. I was wrong.

Barring big breaking news, which unfortunately is a possibility tonight, this will be my and our last post of 2015.
This is the time each year I get a little weepy-eyed and reflective.
When I look back on the past year, there were some tough times. I think of Mandy often, and wish...
2015 was a decent year in terms of blog traffic. We were up over 1 million page views compared to 2014, to over 15 million for the year.
Based on Google Analytics, here were the ten post with the most page views during 2015:

Many of our readers will be shopping online starting on Black Friday (today) and Cyber Monday, through the end of the year.
It’s with a mix of sadness for us (because she’s leaving) and happiness for her (because she found a great law job) that I report Amy Miller is leaving Legal Insurrection at the end of the month. I’ll have more to say about that when we throw her going away party, which...
I can’t believe I missed Legal Insurrection’s 7th anniversary on October 12, 2015.
I even had the date on my calendar, but I’ve been so distracted lately I didn’t pay attention.
