Green Bag to a Good Home

From page 1 of the forthcoming Autumn 2013 issue of the Green Bag:

The Green Bag (the whole enterprise, that is – journals, books, works of scholarly artistry, etc.) no longer has a home at the George Mason University School of Law.

Details of that parting – mostly comic and ironic (and a bit sad) – are not important. But two things must be said. First, we did not lose the support of GMU because the Green Bag or anyone associated with it did anything naughty (we were good citizens, but sometimes even good citizens and good friends part ways). Second, this episode should not be taken to indicate that GMU is anything other than a superb and strong school (it serves its students and the communities of which it is a part extremely well) and a fine place to work (one Green Bag editor is a longtime member of the GMU faculty, and proud of it). We are grateful for our years associated with GMU and we hope to maintain a cooperative relationship.

In any event, there is no need to worry. The Green Bag is not in desperate need of new digs, because its primary institutional home in recent months has been (and currently is and, we hope, will remain) the renowned and kind law firm O’Melveny & Myers LLP.

But it is important to us that our operations match our outlook – one foot in the world of law practice and one foot in the world of legal academia. The Green Bag is at its best when our influences and our most important resources – authors, advisers, collaborators (including readers, of course), and editors – come from both worlds. So, if you think your law school might be a good academic home for the Green Bag, please drop us a line at [email protected]

Derek Tokaz and I published the LST Score Reports methodology (etc) in the second issue of the Journal of Legal Metrics. We worked with Craig Rust and Adam Aft. It was a great experience, fast and thorough.

I highly recommend the Green Bag. I have been a subscriber--off and on--since I discovered it shortly after law school. The articles really are interesting.
