Welcome to OrinKerr.com. My hope is that this blog will provide high-quality discussion and analysis of current legal topics, issues in the legal academy, and trends in the legal profession.
To ensure the highest quality comments, I have set up two ways to comment at this blog: with a registered account and without a registered account. Registered accounts are by invitation only, and permit an individual to post comments without prior review. I plan to invite a group of law professors, lawyers, law students, and journalists to register accounts. Inivitations will probably go out within the next week or so.
If you don’t have an account, you can still submit a comment. However, comments submitted by those without an account will not post automatically. I plan to screen comments by individuals without an account pretty carefully, so that only thoughtful and informed comments are posted.
If you’re interested in submitting an unregistered comment, you can maximize the chance I will approve your submission by offering informed legal arguments delivered in a careful, civil, and clear style. My plan is to offer registered accounts to individuals who establish a track record of submitting particularly good unregistered comments.
