Thankful for Law Review Article Titles
As students heading into the Thanksgiving break before the last stretch of classes and then final exams, it’s easy to focus more on what we’re not thankful for than what we should be thankful for. I’m reminded of a post my colleague Snoopy wrote a year ago about the little things that would get her through what is almost invariably a stressful time for law students. So with Thanksgiving just days away, my last post on this site before the holidays will be about one of the little things I’m thankful for as a law student: clever titles of law review and journal articles. Here are some of my favorites:
- Richard Posner’s recent criticism of the Bluebook was called The Bluebook Blues.
- Taking Takings Seriously is also simply named but has a nice ring to it.
- Andrew Koppelman wrote an easy entitled Bad News for Mail Robbers: The Obvious Constitutionality of Health Care Reform so naturally when Gary Lawson and David B. Kopel wrote a response it was titled Bad News for Professor Koppelman: The Incidental Unconstitutionality of the Individual Mandate.
- Another article on the commerce clause was titled The Clothes Have No Emperor.
- An article about the middle finger and the law was titled Digitus Impudicus.
- Lastly, when it comes to pure provocation, it may be impossible to beat the title of this not-suitable-for-work law review article.
