Rotations and Sundry

Well, it's almost the anniversary of Othello's grand opening in London way back in 1604 and the birthday of Kinky Friedman, so why not share the excitement of the onset of November a little early? We'll have an exciting crew of new voices to welcome over the next few weeks: Kirsten Nussbaumer (doing research over at Stanford this semester) and Kerri Stone (FIU) are joining for the first time, while a band of familiar voices also returns home: Bill Araiza (BLS), Glenn Cohen (HLS), Marc DeGirolami (St. John's); Mark Kende (Drake); Jake Linford (FSU!); and Michael Helfand (Pepperdine). Moreover, and fortunately, Derek Bambauer and Verity Winship will stay on further during the month of November.

Many thanks to our great visiting October prawfs: we hope to see you again on these pages here soon.

Some announcements. First of all, a big thanks to Loyola Los Angeles and Michael Waterstone and Dave Fagundes for hosting and organizing the upcoming Prawfsfest!, the first one I'll have to miss myself since I'll be teaching a mini course at IDC then.  Relatedly, we're thinking of the next few Pfests! over 2012 and 2013, so if you think your school might be interested in hosting, get in touch with me. (We normally do warm weather cities in the winter and multiple-weather cities in late spring or early summer.)

Next, I'm pleased to announce that we'll be having our annual happy hour at AALS in DC during the conference. Without promising, I'm guessing it will take place the Thursday night, on January 5th, around and following 930pm.  These details might change so watch this space, but we'll be having drinks thanks to and in celebration of Drexel's law school, which recently earned accreditation and wants to party with the people. (So pencil that date/time in please; and if you're a DC area prawf with recommendations of favored bars/lounges, let me know since my experience there is getting (sadly) dated!) 

Finally, I'll soon be putting together the schedule of guest bloggers for January-June 2012 (inclusive). If you're a prawf and would like to try your hand (or you know someone who'd be good for it), please get in touch with me with suggestions for a couple months during which you're available to blog a few times a week for a month. Thanks! Happy Halloween!
