Althouse on Tribe

In spite of all of the objective evidence, I persist in believing myself intelligent. However, I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t play one on TV. Consequently, when there’s major legal news, places like Althouse, Bench Memos, Instapundit, Volokh, etc. are good stops for some analysis that you won’t likely find in the local papers.

One thing that struck me (outside of the fact that she’s beating Larry like a rented mule) about this Althouse piece is the fading nature of the Larry Tribes of the world. The next generations of new law students are likely to be much more in tune with the blogging lawprof than the standard academic.

Update: Here’s a link to Prof. Althouse’s NYT op ed on the NSA issue.
