Conservative Law Prof Challenges School's Refusal To Allow Him To Teach Con Law

Thursday, July 1, 2004

A quick JLR search shows:

11 total articles.
7 articles that appear to be on con law. All in the past two years. One at a top-20 law review (Texas), and one at a borderline-top-50 law review (Kansas). (The others at Montana, Penn State, Kentucky, Idaho, Nevada).

It appears from the UMT web site that two other professors teach con law there: Mark Kende and Thomas Huff.

A JLR search shows that Professor Huff has three publications, all apparently con law related, all within the Montana Law Review.

A JLR search shows that Professor Kende has 16 articles, most of which deal with con law topics, and including publications in the U. Chicago Law Review, Hastings Law Journal (twice), Notre Dame Law Review, and Constitutional Commentary.
