Encouragement for Student Authors:

By the way, John O'Connor, the author of the Emoluments Clause article I point to immediately below, reports:

I also should note that I wrote this article while a law student and shopped it around immediately after graduation. I know you have had posts on your site about the ability of law students to attract journal interest in their student-written works. It can be done (and because of the paucity of scholarship in this area, it's an article I get occasional inquiries about out of the blue).

So take heart, law students, and get those articles circulated. (Of course, it helps if they're original, well-reasoned, and well-written, as O'Connor's article is.)
