Details re: upcoming Prawfsfest!

I'm very excited that, with the end of the semester, I can now turn to start writing (or revising) some projects that have been on the back burner. And with that in mind, I also am thinking about the next Prawfsfest!, which is being graciously hosted by our friends at Brooklyn Law School this coming July 6 and 7th (and dinner on Monday the 5th). While we have enough people to present over the course of the two days, we may be able to squeeze in a couple more folks who are interested in being there to give comments on the early works in progress related to legal theory and/or public law. (You can find out more about what the format is like over here.) 

Our current list of attendees and/or presenters include: Mike Cahill, Miriam Baer, Nelson Tebbe, Verity Winship, Bill Araiza, Katy Kuh, Hillel Levin, Howard Wasserman, Giovanna Shay, Chris Lund, and Marc Blitz (and me). If you are interested in joining in as a discussant, please let me know of your interest before next Friday. Here are four advantages of participating as a discussant: some free grub for a few days c/o BLS; priority in the queue for presenting at the next Prawfsfest! at ASU--Phoenix in the winter; and if you are coming in from out of town, a great hotel rate at a boutique hotel in Brooklyn Heights; and the freedom to lacerate other people's papers without exposing your own work for similar scrutiny. The principal downside: spending time indoors in the summer with energetic prawfs :-)

Preference will go to those who have already guested on Prawfs or have committed to doing so in the future, and/or who present some hint of intellectual/methodological diversity.

@MRK: feel free to send me something via email.
@JL: the focus of topics and the main cluster of people are connected to legal theory and public law, but it's often good to have at least some folks who are interested in other things (for example but not limited to "law and econ").

"Some hint of intellectual/methodological diversity." That deserves being fleshed out by an entire post, Dan.

Hey, Dan, I know you're full up on presenters, but would you maybe have room to squeeze in an aspiring prawf with an odd twist on land-use law?
