Arrr . . . matey!
Yesterday I became the Chair of the AALS Section on Admiralty and Maritime Law. It was a bitter, hard-fought campaign in which I was the only volunteer. So my main task is to put together a panel for the 2011 AALS Conference in San Francisco.
My idea for a panel builds on a post that I did wrote way back in April, which talked about what scholars in other fields can learn from Admiralty. What I would like to do is get a contracts person, a torts person, and a corporate law person to talk about the relevant distinctions between maritime law and land-based doctrine. I think that could be a fun discussion for lots of folks. Please email me if you’re interested in participating.
