It seems that in a number of areas of legal scholarship (intellectual property, privacy just to name some that I follow), law profs are increasingly writing about extra-legal issues - such as the power of norms. I have read a lot of good legal scholarship (and written some hopefully passable scholarship myself) that talks about extra-legal means of regulation and that focuses on things like norms and market forces as regulators. But recently I've wondered if this is the appropriate role for lawyers?… [read post]

I’ve had the impression that, over the time I’ve been following environmental law, there’s been a dramatic increase in the amount of scholarship in the field.  I did a search of the Westlaw JLR database for  (“environmental regulation” “air pollution” “water pollution” “endangered species”) with data restrictions.  This search is only an approximation but it should capture a high proportion of environmental articles and not too many others.  To the extent there are errors,… [read post]

Peter Klein offers up some thoughts on “reference bloat” in academic journals: Nature News (via Bronwyn Hall): One in five academics in a variety of social science and business fields say they have been asked to pad their papers with superfluous references in order to get published. The figures, from a survey published today in Science, also suggest that journal editors strategically target junior faculty, who in turn were more willing to acquiesce. I think reference bloat is a problem,… [read post]

Has been posted on Balkinization and on SSRN The First Amendment is an Information Policy. This paper sounds like it could have interesting implications for an issue which I intend to return to on the scholarship front, that is, what happens when some of what appears in law reviews has been "sponsored" or "commissioned" ? And when I say "sponsored" or "commissioned" I am not referring to law school summer research grants. Such grants are never conditioned on the topic or on the author reaching a… [read post]
