Jurisprudence at the January 2010 AALS Annual Meeting

Longtime readers of my blogs will know of my distaste (shared by all thinking people!) for the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools, but my friend Scott Shapiro (Yale) is organizing a panel on "Legal Positivism:  For and Against" for the January 2010 meeting in New Orleans, so I'm going to participate for the first time in a long time.  Scott has already lined up Mark Greenberg (UCLA) (on the "against" side!), and has some other good invites outstanding.   An opportunity to talk with Scott and Mark is always rewarding, so I'll be there, though I may finally force Scott to surrender his positivist union card if he doesn't recant on certain points!   In any case, I expect it to be a substantive panel and I thought jurisprudents in law schools might be interested.  Of course, leaving Chicago in January for New Orleans is also a non-trivial attraction.
