  1. Bridget Crawford says:

    Ann is too modest to point this out, but I will: her work is quite cited, as is the work of other Feminist Law Profs (and IP scholars) Margaret Chon and Rebecca Tushnet, to name a few. Go IP!

  2. Ann Bartow says:

    Madhavi Sunder, Susan Scafidi, Sharon Sandeen, Eileen Kane, Christine Haight Farley, Victoria Phillips, Sonia Katyal, Ian Kerr, and Llew Gibbons are also Feminist Law Profs with an IP orientation. So Bridget, when you are ready to give up tax… :>)

    To use the form of comment used by a disgraced president…”I AM NOT A SUCK-UP”…THAT BEING SAID, this is one of the most modest and intelectualy powerful groups around. In my humble and humbled opinion.
    As Will Sonnet would say “No brag, just fact!”
