I keep a list of law review articles I'd like to write. That list has grown to thirteen, ten of which are about class action settlements. The problem is that the time it would take me to write a law review article by myself would take away from my litigating time, and I'm already in a position where I can't prosecute every appeal I would like to prosecute. There are hundreds of professors writing law review articles, and only one non-profit focusing on enforcing the law of class-action settlement fairness, so comparative advantage suggests that I shouldn't change my mind about this. But perhaps you're an academic or an aspiring academic who'd like to build upon the skeleton of my outlines and ideas and jump through the hoops of submitting to law reviews. Happy to have your name go first so long as you take the laboring oar on the second draft. Drop me a line if you're interested.
