How to Lateral
Posted by David Zaring

A break from Bear Stearns - though can you believe that a firm with a sweet skyscraper in Manhattan, if nothing else, would go for $270 million?  Skyscrapers in that town cost a billion! - to point you to Paul Secunda's how to lateral essay.   He's put it in 10 easy steps.  Given the reception for Jeff Lipshaw's should I be a law professor piece, I think Paul should probably title the paper "How to Win Downloads and Influence People."

Way back when, I blogged about the hiring process for law professors. It felt like a tired subject at the time -- I was far from the first to write about the process -- but I was chairing Wisconsin's appointment's committee, and I thought an insider's view in real time would be sort of cool. That series of posts attracted a whole bunch of links from other blogs.

Since then, a gazillion people have done similar things from all angles, and each time it happens, people link to the new series. In light of Jeff's success, I am wondering whether we all missed the boat by not writing essays and posting them on SSRN.

I loved your entry level hiring posts back when I was on the market! And I am readying my review essay on essays born from blog posts about the hiring market as we speak.

If we're after SSRN downloads, we're all missing the boat in appealing only to profs; stay tuned for my upcoming piece, "how to get an A in law school classes without studying at all."
