“Over the past two decades, domestic U.S. law has become more intertwined than ever with international human rights norms. Courts and legislatures are increasingly confronting human rights arguments, and government actors from the local to the federal level are increasingly active in developing these norms internationally. As law professors, we not only study these developments but may also participate in them, often acting as human rights advocates or catalysts for change. We also engage our students in human rights analysis and advocacy efforts, through law school clinics, research projects and classroom readings. This blog aims to serve as a forum for exchanging information and insights relevant to all of the many ways in which law professors and scholars are active in this area, from teaching to advocacy to scholarship.”
The blog's title stands for Journal of Things We Like (Lots). In posts, law professors evaluate the latest and greatest legal scholarship in their respective disciplines.

Our goal is to be both informative and thought-provoking by fostering vigorous intellectual engagement without vitriol. The marketplace of ideas is what we make of it."
