Along with co-author Judd Stone, I’ve posted to SSRN our contribution to the Review of Industrial Organization‘s symposium on the 2010 Horizontal Merger Guidelines — The Sound of One Hand Clapping: The 2010 Horizontal Merger Guidelines and the Challenge of Judicial Adoption. The paper focuses on the Guidelines’ efficiencies analysis.  We argue that while the 2010 HMGs “update” the Guidelines’ analytical approach in generally desirable ways, these updates are largely asymmetrical in… [read post]

The rise of a Supreme Court pro bono bar and Supreme Court clinics is of journalistic and scholarly interest. Critics of Supreme Court clinics worry that competition to litigate cases in the Court might have an adverse impact on outcomes for individual clients or causes.Compare this worry to scholarly concern about a distinct but related matter: the advent of an elite Supreme Court bar for private interests--corporate lawyers who work at top-notch private law firms. In recent years, Richard… [read post]

Image from hereAround two years ago, I had written a post on the need to balance the data exclusivity debate in India (Shamnad has responded to that post over here). I wanted to expand that post into a full length academic essay and I finally got the time to do so, after a lot of procrastination. The article is available for download over here from SSRN. I’m yet to submit it for publication to any journal and was hoping to do so after receiving some comments from our readers. The… [read post]

"What does it mean to lose your citizenship?" Linda Kerber (University of Iowa) asks, in a recent piece in Dissent. "That is what the Dominican Republic has just done, depriving tens of thousands—some estimates run to hundreds of thousands—of their DR nationality, making them stateless in the country of their birth." Read on here. (Hat tip: Mary Dudziak, via twitter) Earlier, we noted Megan McKee’s H-Law review of Jill Norgen’s Rebels at the Bar: The Fascinating, Forgotten… [read post]

In a response to my essay, The Trespass Fallacy in Patent Law, in which I explain why patent scholars like Michael Meurer, James Bessen, T.J. Chiang and others are committing the nirvana fallacy in their critiques of the patent system, my colleague, T.J. Chiang writes at PrawfsBlawg: The Nirvana fallacy, at least as I understand it, is to compare an imperfect existing arrangement (such as the existing patent system) to a hypothetical idealized system. But the people comparing the patent system to… [read post]

A law professor, writing anonymously, has argued that law school is a scam.  See the excerpt on Tax Prof and links to other posts included therein:  Anonymous Law Prof:  Law Profs are Scamming their Students, Aug. 11, 2011.   Essentially, the anonymous law prof at a first-tier (but not top 10) school says that law profs do very little but reteach the same courses they taught in prior years, with little 'updating' of their own intellectual knowledge or preparation for class, little practice… [read post]

This past weekend at OAH I had the pleasure of commenting on the panel "Race and Law: New Directions in Southern Legal History," chaired by David Lieberman (UC Berkeley) and featuring papers by Sally Hadden (Western Michigan University), Charles Zelden (Nova Southeastern University), and Patricia Minter (Western Kentucky University). The scholarship presented was terrific, but the real star of the show was Hadden and Minter's new edited collection, Signposts. According to the Acknowledgements, the… [read post]

Here’s a brief snippet from the start of the interview: For starters, how about a brief rundown of your story of why housing in major cities is so expensive.

With all of the focus on the cost of higher education, it’s easy to forget that there are a number of scholarships and fellowships available. Scholarships are generally funds paid to or for the benefit of a student at an undergraduate or graduate school who is studying for a degree. Fellowships are funds paid for the benefit of a student who is studying or pursuing research. Most folks assume that all scholarships and fellowships are federal income tax free to the student. That’s a… [read post]
