Looking Back: Papers Enjoyed in 2007

Over at LTB, Larry has usefully given a list of ten books and ten papers (with shout-outs to my colleague Curtis Bridgeman and guest-prawf Rob Kar) he's really liked drawn from the last year. I'm quite certain I haven't read ten full new books this past year; indeed, I'm not sure I even read ten old books this past year but Larry's lists are inspirations.

On the other hand, I am quite certain I've read at least ten articles or books this past year. Here, in no particular order, are some of the ones I've really enjoyed and learned from this past year, drawn mostly from the areas of criminal, tort, and family law. Some are older, but most are relatively recent. Feel free to add your faves in the comments.
