The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) is an association, er, of American law schools.  The AALS annual meeting, which is held early in January, is a big event in the law professor community.

I first posted about the AALS annual meeting back in November 2008, when some law professors attempted to force AALS to...

(Please try not to fall asleep while reading this post.)

There is something profoundly depressing about the nomination of Elena Kagan.

Kagan has an impressive resume. But …

Has there ever been a more intellectually bland nominee? Probably, but not in decades. Bland is the new intellectual powerhouse.

Talk about spin, the headlines are screaming 69 law school deans endorse Kagan in letter to Senate:

The deans of more than one-third of the nation’s law schools have endorsed Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court, issuing a public letter that praises her legal analysis, writings, coalition-building skills and “understanding of...

I certainly understand why Helen Thomas’ comments that Jews should get the hell out of Palestine and go back to Germany and Poland have created such a stir.

But really, don’t lose sight of the fact that by anti-Israeli standards, Thom...

Strange. I’m not sure I support Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court, assuming she is the nominee, but I’m already finding myself having to defend her.

If Elena Kagan were a liberal legal hero, with a long record of reaching the correct conclusions from the left-wing perspective, no one on the left...

The Onion recently released a spoof of a mythical Supreme Court ruling upholding the right to freedom of speech, replete with a fauxto of Ruth Bader Ginsburg flipping a double bird.

Haven’t heard of it? Join the other 99.999% of Americans. But in the law-related blogosphere, the controversy is all the rage the past few days.

There is a fundamental disconnect in the arguments being mounted against the Arizona immigration law. What many of the critics want to say, but do not, is that they view all immigration laws as inherently racist because most illegal immigrants are non-white.

There are some legitimate civil liberties concerns regarding the standard...

Barack Obama’s insistence that Israel cease all building in Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, calling such neighborhoods “settlements,” raises an interesting question. Who are the settlers in Jerusalem?
