Introduction and Thanks

Hi Everyone,

First of all, thanks to Craig for the nice introduction. As he mentioned, I'm a recent law school graduate currently living in New York, where I am an associate at a law firm. Over the past few years, I've published law review articles on a range of subjects, from gay marriage to civic engagement to the takings clause. My most recent article was on stare decisis and was discussed on this blog last year. I've got a couple of other pieces in the pipeline, which I'll blog about soon. I'll also share my thoughts on other issues as they come up. Sometimes I'll be discussing works that are still unpublished, so I'd appreciate any feedback or comments you might have.

Incidentally, the views in my articles and my blog posts are my own, not those of my firm, Blackbook, other editors on this blog, or any other individual or entity. And, although I'd like to blog about interesting legal issues in the news, I won't be blogging about anything work-related, even if news about those matters is already public, just to steer well clear of any confidentiality concerns.

I'm looking forward to blogging here and engaging in discussions with all of you. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, criticisms, or funny jokes. Thanks to Craig, Nima, and everyone else on the Blackbook team for inviting me to blog with them. This should be fun!
