    I think Brian Kalt’s article on the jurisdictional gap at Yellowstone inspired a crime novel.

    Wasn’t “The Remainders of the Day” based on somebody’s piece on the rule against perpetuities? “Laurence of Arabia” had something to do with Tribes. And of course, “Bananas” was based on my essay about why an old person would want to become a law professor.

    No idea on law review articles, but in terms of books, Alan Dershowitz’ book “Reversal of Fortune” about the Claus von Bulow case was made into an excellent film by the same name. And Dersh’s novel “The Advocate’s Devil” was made into a Keanu Reeves/Al Pacino movie, “The Devil’s Advocate.”
