A July of Unsolicited Advice

I am delighted to be back blogging at prawfsblawg.  I specifically asked Dan to blog in July so that I can inundate everyone with some unsolicited advice about how to go on the teaching market.

But, before I get to that, I thought I should note that I have posted the AALS Scholarship Panel transcript -- "Crafting a Scholarly Persona" -- on SSRN.  During the program, Ian Ayres, Paul Robinson and Carol Sanger discussed how approach their research.  It was really interesting to see how these three scholars took such divergent approaches to their work.  There's tons of good advice here.  I personally have found Ian Ayres' "1000 words a day" approach to be extremely helpful.  In fact, I'd better get back to it...I've only written about 250 this a.m.!

and a related question: what counts as a publication? Do only law review articles? What about substantial bar journal articles or encyclopedia entries? Thanks!!

I for one hope you inundate us with advice for aspiring law profs. One question in particular I have is how much and where one should ideally publish prior to making the move.
