So Long, Farewell, Near-Future Plans, and Thanks for all the Fish!

Go to fullsize image

I am off to Sea World for our monthly visit of Shamu and think it is time to take Dan’s announcement about rotations as a hint for signing off. It’s been a blast to guest blawg on prawfs and I am grateful to all the perma-bloggers for the invitation. I think blogging is indeed a fine way to complement and support scholarship, teaching, and networking. So I hope to be invited to return at some point next year.

Meanwhile, this summer I look forward to meeting some of my new virtual friends at the Annual Law and Society Meeting in Baltimore; perhaps even in a few weeks at a conference on New Governance research I am attending in Wisconsin; or at the Labor Law Group annual meeting in upstate NY; or in Tel-Aviv; AALS; and certainly here Sunny San Diego - for example, for the April Institute for Law and Philosophy conference on the rights and wrongs of discriminations.

And of course, I plan to immerse myself into my new research projects—one on whistleblower protections and individual/collective accountability in complex organizations, and another on IP allocations/protections in employment relationships. I will also be doing edits on my forthcoming Michigan Law Review essay The Four Pillars of Work Law and my forthcoming Harvard Law Review article, The Paradox of Extra-Legal Activism: Critical Legal Consciousness and Transformative Politics (ok, Dan twisted my arm to include this final bit).

But I am now officially hooked on the blogosphere so I promise to keep following, and commenting on, the conversation; I have recently also become part of the New Feminist Law Professors collaborative blog; and every so often I send the guys over at Workplace Prof Blog some stuff, which is then promptly devised into a post, being the excellent, active blog that it is. Thanks again for having me! Lobel, Signing Off.
