Fall Call for Bloggers

by PG

We're still looking for fresh law students, or law students-to-be, to join De Novo. Consider where De Novo posts have gone:

Armen has been cited in the Virginia Law Review (Matthew Madden, Anticipated Judicial Vacancies and the Power to Nominate, 93 Va. L. Rev. 1135 (2007)).

Sean has been cited by the Ninth Circuit, which fact has been cited in the Yale Law Journal's Pocket Part (Stephen I. Vladeck, That's So Six Months Ago: Challenges to Student Scholarship in the Age of Blogging, 116 Yale L.J. Pocket Part 31 (2006), stating, "See, e.g., United States v. Scott, 450 F.3d 863, 894 n.5 (9th Cir. 2006) (Callahan, J., dissenting from denial of rehearing en banc) (citing Sean Sirrine, U.S. v. Scott, De Novo, Sept. 12, 2005,

And further down the legal scholarship hierarchy, I've been cited in the Fordham Urban Law Journal (I. India Geronimo, "Reasonably Predictable": The Reluctance to Embrace Judicial Discretion for Substantial Assistance Departures, 33 Fordham Urb. L.J. 1321 (2006)), and the Barry Law Review (Jane M. Godda, Building the Cathedral: Sculpting a Part-Time Legal Education in a Double-Time World, 8 Barry L. Rev. 117 (2007)).

So think of it as improving your chances at being cited by fellow law students, professors and judges -- without having to go through writing a Note.

I really need to express my bitterness at the UVA thing. As loyal readers may recall (that means you PG and whoever else keeps coming across my posts while searching for various sexual positions), in my last full post, I griped about having ideas stolen from me...or at least published first. Well, when Justice O'Connor announced her resignation, I immediately thought about the peculiar phrasing of her resignation letter. Prof. Lindgren posted at the VC, and I added my own thoughts here.

At the time, I was taking Con Law: Structural Issues. We could either writer a paper, or take the final. What better idea for a paper for that class than to write about SOC's strange choice of language that deprived President Bush of a recess appointment. I ran the idea by Prof. Yoo, and he just looked at me and said, "No, I really don't think there's much there." Now this A**hole not only publishes a note on the very same topic, but he cites to MY post in so doing. Prick.

But really, you should give it a go.
