My Publications in 2013, and 2014

December 18th, 2013

In 2013, my publication pace was slowed somewhat due to finishing Unprecedented, and touring around the country promoting it. But I still pecked out several publications.

First, here are the law review articles I wrote this year:

  1. Obamacare & Man at Yale, 2014 Illinois Law Review __ (2014).

  5. Back to the Future of Originalism, 16 Chapman Law Review 325 (2013) (Symposium).
  6. The Path of Big Data and the Law, a chapter in “Big Data and the Law” (West Academic Press 2014).

Second, here are the Op-Eds I wrote:

Of course, this is in addition to roughly 1,700 blog posts (I had 5,000 last December 19).

I have several more articles that will be finished in 2014.

  1. A piece for the Connecticut Law Review symposium on the 2nd Amendment, looking at how legislatures react to mass shootings.
  2. A piece for the Tennessee Law Review symposium on the 2nd Amendment, looking at 3D Printing and the 1st and 2nd Amendments.
  3. A book review of Clark Neily’s “Terms of Engagement” for the New York Journal of Law & Liberty.
  4. A piece on data and speech for the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law’s Heightened Scrutiny.
  5. A piece on revenge porn and the First Amendment.
  6. I hope to expand on Robot, Esq. based on some research I’ve done on the rules of ethics and legal tech, but I haven’t gotten there yet.
  7. am working on a study about the certiorari process, and the Supreme Court bar. I’ll be giving a talk about it at the Southwestern Political Science Association in April.
  8. Dan Katz, Mike Bommarito, and I are working on a series of papers about FantasySCOTUS and prediction algorithms. These will be cool.

I have a few, longer-term projects that I want to work on over the year for the summer submission season. I’ve decided to hold back on Kennedy’s Constitutional Chimera, because I suspect Bond will have a lot to offer (I did give a talk on this paper at the Loyola Constitutional Law Colloquium). I do want to return to my work on social cost.

As for books, I am still working on a proposal for a new book about Obamacare. I really want to wait and see what happens in the first few months of the new year, to see where this is headed.

I have also decided to put together a proposal for an academic press book that looks at the people behind popular constitutional movements that led to Supreme Court cases. It would be told in a similar style to Unprecedented, but with a much stronger focus on how people affected constitutional doctrine. This project will be much, more long term.

Stay tuned for hopefully lots of good stuff to read in 2014.
