Prior to joining the Cornell Law faculty in 2007, Prof. Jacobson had a highly successful civil litigation and arbitration practice in Providence, Rhode Island, concentrating in investment, employment, and business disputes in the securities industry, including many high profile cases reported in leading newspapers and magazines. Prof. Jacobson also is the founder and publisher of Legal Insurrection, a popular politics and law website. He is frequently quoted in the media on political and legal topics, has authored many Op-Eds in major publications, and appears on television and radio to discuss politics and the law.

    Perhpas schedule an LI event in a hotel meeting room adjacent to the one Twillie would be using the share her view of the Gibsons trial. Four dozen whole wheat glazed donuts and you would totally own her audience.

    You’re killing us heading to the liberal cities of Texas! Unfortunately, I’ve got students during the week! Maybe the next trip!

    Come to Columbus Ohio, only 2 hours from the belly of the beast, Oberlin, and only one hour from Yellow Springs, the home of Antioch College where the hair is purple, the noses pierced, the minds atrophied, the opinions predictably boring, the cars heavy with “coexist” bumper stickers, and where it is always 1968.

    Be careful in Austin. They are doing their best to duplicate California’s homeless situation, tent cities on the sidewalks and all.

    Houston is doable for me though I’ll see if I can make it there. You pick the two purple Texas strongholds on purpose?
