Guest Blogging on LRW, the Meat Market, and Whatever Else Strikes My Fancy

Thanks for having me back--glad to be here!

During this guest-blogging stint, I'm going to try to focus on three things:

  1. I plan to do a series of posts on the role of Legal Research and Writing in the law school curriculum.  For reasons that I will explain, I think that this subject is unfortunately overlooked on blogs like this.
  2. With the meat market upon us, I will likely do a post or two on the subject.  I went through the process last year and greatly appreciated all of the information available on the internets tubes.  If readers have questions or suggestions for posts, please leave comments.
  3. One of the nice things about blogging is that I get to write whatever else I want.  (I promised that there would be three items of focus, so I guess this is like being granted three wishes by the genie and using the last one to wish for an infinite number of wishes.)

It would be nice to read a post on what more one must do to distinguish yourself and land tenure-track if you didn't go to Yale, Harvard, or Stanford, but still perhaps went to a top 25 school. Is the bar considerably higher, do you need better/more publications, is a VAP or fellowship that much more required, or do these questions miss the point (since perhaps the process is simply not that predictable).

How about a post on how to decide whether you're ready to go on the Meat Market (with a focus on quantity/placement of publications and where you went to school, as a potentially disqualifying factor).

Sounds like a great series. If anyone knows how I can RSS a specific blogger on a group blog, fill me in. Wouldn't want to miss this series. :)
