Bench Memos

Welcome to the Big Time

I’d say Zephyr Teachout, visiting assistant professor at Duke Law School, can rest assured that she will earn a tenured post at a prestigious law school one day.  All she needs to put in her file is today’s column by George F. Will, who devotes his entire Sunday space to criticizing a recent law review article by Teachout.  What better proof of her merit to a liberal-dominated tenure committee than to be attacked by America’s leading conservative newspaper columnist?  She couldn’t have asked for more.
