My Writings, Speeches, Media, and other Accomplishments in 2017

December 31st, 2017

In 2017, I published (or have placed) 6 law review articles, delivered 7 academic presentations, given 50 lectures, written 62 pieces of commentary, and had 461 media hits. In addition, I released the Third Edition of Barnett/Blackman constitutional law casebook and a paperback edition of Unraveled. Plus, I have been involved in the Emoluments Clauses litigation, as well as the ongoing Defense Distributed litigation. Of course, these activities were on top of teaching two sections of Constitutional Law, one section of Property I, and one section of Property II. This was, by far, my busiest year to date. In contrast, in 2016, I had 35 pieces of commentary and 180 media hits. I look forward to an even greater 2018.

All of my accomplishments since 2009 can be found on my CV.
