“Law Talk”: Coming soon to an iPod near you…

microphone.gifWith the help of Concurring Opinions, I’ll shortly be launching a new podcast — “Law Talk” — focusing on legal scholarship. The basic format will be interviews with law professors about their current research or recent publications. Hopefully we can provide a way of publicizing and popularizing some of the work of the legal academy, as well as giving professors another outlet for sharing their ideas. At this point, I am hoping to get input on three things:

1. I am open to suggestions on the optimal length for the podcast. At this point, I am thinking somewhere in the range of 20 to 30 minutes. Do you think it should be shorter or longer?

2. I am open to suggestions for potential guests. Who would you like to hear from? About what?

3. Do you have a recent publication or a current research project that you would like to discuss on “Law Talk”?

If you have thoughts or suggestions on any of these things, leave a comment or email me at nboman-at-wm-dot-edu.

    Great idea, and I’d encourage some “meta” questions — e.g., what do you think about the current and future state of legal scholarhship?; what advice would you give to junior scholars and/or law students interested in this field?

    Also, I think less is more, perhaps 5-10 minutes on the substance of the article, and another 5-10 minutes on some of these meta issues.

    I’d be happy and honored to be involved.
