So Many Note Titles, So Little Written

by PG

I keep changing my mind regarding a topic for a Note targeted to the Journal of Gender & Law, but here's the latest bad title for one:

"The Chatter about Domestic Violence Law in the Case is All a Distraction": How Criminal Law Is Being Set by Abuse Among Intimates.

(OK, so all I can think of are Blakely (kidnapped his estranged wife) and Hammon/ Davis -- which the Seattle Times headlines as being about domestic assault. Crawford has the interesting twist of being a case in which the defendant committed the crime because his victim had tried to assault the former's wife.)

Don't write about this if you hope to get it published. I've been reviewing articles for my law review. In the last three weeks, we've received dozens and dozens of articles about DV and its effects (pro and con) on criminal law. Yawn.

Hmm. What are my chances of getting an empirical piece on discrimination against women in admission to "gentlemen's clubs"?
