Arrr . . . matey!

120px-Sperm_whale1bYesterday 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.

    I hope you’ll start referring to non section-members as “landlubbers”.

    Congratulations Mr. Chairman or, should I say, Captain Bligh?
