The Lewis & Clark Law Review just published its terrific symposium issue titled Pondering Iqbal--a reference to Ashcroft v. Iqbal, the Supreme Court's decision last term that heightened the pleading standard and resulted in countless dismissals, spawning an effort in Congress to return to a notice pleading standard. Full papers are available at the Law Review's link here.
The Law Review put together an outstanding symposium issue, and all the papers are well worth a look. Here are a few that jumped out at me:
Howard M. Wasserman, Iqbal, Procedural Mismatches, and Civil Rights Litigation
Michael C. Dorf, Iqbal and Bad Apples
Stephen I. Vladeck, National Security and Bivens After Iqbal
