Author Mark Osler, a Baylor University law professor, says he was inspired to write it after taking part in a mock trial of Jesus' capital case at a Baptist church in Waco, Texas. "It was a hung jury," Osler tells the blog.
  • Writing in Forbes, University of Chicago law professor Richard A. Epstein takes issue with his colleague Geoffrey R. Stone's assertion at Huffington Post that the ABA has no liberal bias in its evaluations of judges. To deny such a bias, Epstein says, is "dangerous."
  • Just in time for Easter, The ABA Journal is inviting readers to create dioramas honoring the legal profession using marshmallow Peeps. Entry deadline is Friday. You can see the submissions so far in the Peeps in Law Gallery.
  • Bruce MacEwen attempts to sort out the economics of whatever the heck it is we're all going through right now. He concludes: "Law firms are not ... the worst industry to be in right now."
