Marquette Law Review
Marq. L. Rev.
Tentative thoughts on what professional norms ought to apply to law professors who engage in a now popular form of public discourse: Twitter. Specifically, it is suggested that law professors should assume that, each time they tweet about a legal issue, they are making an implicit claim to expertise about that issue. It is also suggested that when law professors participate on Twitter, they should do so in a fashion that models the sort of reasoned debate taught to law students.
