Say hello to the Administrative Law Prof Blog, edited by Drury Stevenson (South Texas) & Cynthia Quinn (Hawaii).
The perfect topic for a blog IMHO, but very very hard to pull off.
An Administrative Law Blog? Zzzzzzzzzzzz. Whoops, must have nodded off there for a second. What were we talking about, again?
But. But. Administrative law is so interesting. Really.
Fortunately, the bloggers’ view of whether their blog is interesting and well-maintained will be entitled to deference.
Hmmm. I suppose that I’ll have to exhaust all the new blog’s resources before I log onto the other legal blogs now.
I hope there is an opportunity for comments on the blog
Michael – Thanks for plugging our new blog! Much obliged!
Admin sounds boring, I know, but it’s just the name. In reality, it’s probably the most political area of law, and the area more likely to affect the life of the average citizen than other things I teach (Criminal Law, etc.). It’s the area most affected by which party wins the White House. My main scholarly interest is etiology, that point where laws actually translate into behavior or real decisions, whether by the citizens, judges, the police, etc. I’m curious about the process by which words on a page can actually make a change in the real world, because I am cynical about whether most legal rules really matter. I like Administrative Law (the process of government regulation) because it provides lots of opportunities to see how legal rules affect/don’t affect behavior. Also, the government makes lots of mistakes that I think are funny.
Ann – you remind me of my students in my Admin Law class! Just kidding. Honestly, we will try to make it as interesting/entertaining as possible. Check out the post about Marcus Peacock and post a comment.
Alkali – Don’t worry, this Blogger is plagued by philosophical doubts about his own existence. No delusions that this is going to be life-transforming material. I have another website where I do that. We are making a genuine effort to post something every day.
Ereshkigal – I didn’t get it, sorry. It’s not a replacement for others, but rather specialized for those who study & teach Admin Law as a profession.
anon- yes, please post comments!
