Opinions Are Like...Well, You Know...

I promised I wouldn't advertise this to Yale Law people for another few days, so if you're a YLSer, please skip past this post.

I am now a published opinion journalist. My friend Becky Bolin and I have a piece, "What Yale's Silence Says", in today's Hartford Courant. It's about the way YLS's reaction to the Alito nomination reveals the total lack of ideological diversity at the law school. I think it makes a pretty good companion piece to Professor Schuck's recent article, which tackles the issue more generally, and this New York Observer piece, about the Other Law School's hiring of conservative law profs.
