Oklahoma . . . Is On My Mind


My wife and I have moved to Tulsa, as I begin a tenure-track appointment at the University of Tulsa College of Law tomorrow. I have been blogging now for just over four months, and I would like to thank my readership - whether law faculty, practitioners, or students.

As I prepare for the 2006-2007 school year, I would like to invite you to contact me here (i) to make any suggestions for improvements to the blog; (ii) to contribute an occassional post about unincorporated businesses; (iii) to inform me of any scholarship that you have written about unincorporated businesses so I may post the abstract and link to the paper; and (iv) to let me know if you are teaching course(s) in agency, partnerships, and LLCs (even if for the first time) at a new school so I can feature your profile on the blog.

You are also always welcome to post comments in response to any post (although it takes me a day or so to enable them). And I am always looking for more contributing editors, so if you are interested in posting to the blog once a week or more, please let me know.
