New Criminal Law Blog: The Faculty Lounge

We’re excited to welcome a new blog into this world.  The Faculty Lounge is a group effort led by two crim profs: Dan Filler (Drexel) and Laura Appleman (Willamette).  They’re joined by Al Brophy (Alabama), Calvin Massey (Hastings), Kathy Bergin (South Texas), and Kevin Maillard (Syracuse).  It’s a general interest law blog, focusing on anything interesting.  Dan has moved his annual Law Faculty Lateral Moves list to his new venue as well.  Members of The Faculty Lounge have been regulars or visitors at Concurring Opinions, Prawfsblawg, BlackProf, PropertyProf, Money Law, Legal History Blog, First Amendment Law Prof, Feminists Law Professors, and elsewhere.    

This is how Dan described the Faculty Lounge mission:  

We imagined a blog that shamelessly embraced  both high theory and pop culture.  A blog that accepted the all-too-true reality that everyone is too damn busy to read anything that isn't engaging.  A blog with multiple voices, some newer and some older.  It seemed to me that we wanted to recreate the experience of a faculty lounge.  Where sometimes people are talking about a great new paper on SSRN, other times they're lamenting the loss of a wonderful colleague to a competitor school, and once in a while they're just amused by a funny bumper sticker they saw on the way to work.
