Law Professors,*
Make Your Recommendations

Helpful Legal Scholarship for the
Supreme Court

In the form below you may recommend:

(A) up to five works of legal scholarship (by authors other than yourself) that ought to be read by a Justice deciding the case you specify and

(B) your own best relevant work as well.

Your recommendations will be posted at a link to the appropriate case (at right) and a link to your name (at left), but only after someone from the Green Bag emails/phones you at the address/number we find on your page at your law school’s website to verify that it really is you who completed this form (to minimize fraud on us and spam at you).

Questions? Comments? Ideas? Changed your mind about your recommendations? Please email us.

If you prefer paper to pixels, please click here, print out and complete the form, and mail it to us.

* If you are a scholar in a field other than law (or a legal scholar not yet tenured in a law school), please be patient. We are starting small and hope to cover other fields soon. We also hope to come up with or be shown a marker of scholarliness that is more accurate and reliable than tenure. We welcome your suggestions.
