What we’re thinking/reading/doing (IFLS blog)
What’s interesting these days?
Thanks to those of you who entered. The random number generator coughed up Nooreen Bhanji’s entry. She’s a freshly minted (2011!) grad of Osgoode Hall now articling at Torys LLP who clearly likes non fiction -she says that the last book she read was “The Big Short” by Michael Lewis. Now she will be able to spend her non working hours (what?) reading something a little bit further in the past but just as relevant to the future. Thanks to all to entered.
Moving right along, I seem to have a credit at UBC Press, and they have More >
Cornell Graduate Legal Studies has this CFP “Changing Faces in Legal Thinking: Revisiting Legal Methodologies” up, looks so interesting. Deadline on CFP is Jan 6.
One of the most fun discussions in any viva/dissertation defence is always the one about methodological choices. I learnt that trick from my mentor Toni Williams, now at Kent. It produces a very rich discussion with form and substance intertwining – every time.

Critical & Constructive Engagement The aim of the workshop is to promote critical and constructive engagement with the work-inprogress of workshop participants. Rather than presenting your own material, your project is presented by a fellow researcher, offering a fresh look at your work, accompanied by comments and questions. Before the author is given a chance to ‘respond’, other workshop participants offer their feedback. Building on this engagement with More >
I have an extra copy, you need something to read when you are off work/school/marking (or, you think this would make a perfect gift – it’s not a used copy). Let me know in the comments (they are moderated, so you won’t see it pop up right away). I’ll take entries for about 36 hours, then do a random draw, then contact the lucky winner for an address and ship it out this week (or, if you want help preventing distractions until December X, we can hold it till later).
This book, btw, is one I really liked. Pauli More >
