Also on June 19, Peter Lattman, on The Wall Street Journal's law blog, asked, "Why is a legal malpractice case so much harder to make out than a medical malpractice case?" His post titled "Do Judges Favor the Interests of the Legal Profession?" tries to answer that subtle mystery.

Over at MauledAgain, Prof. James Edward Maule has posted Part V of his "Structuring the Basic Tax Course" series, and if you teach (or are interested in teaching) tax law, this explanation may interest you. I liked it, even though I'm only used to paying taxes and have never taught on them.

The Becker-Posner Blog has a terrific June 17 posting on intelligence and leadership. In the blog, Posner tries to explain something he finds puzzling: effectiveness in senior leadership positions in government does not seem to be very closely correlated with intelligence. Using a multitude of examples, Posner suggests that "overall, the correlation between intelligence and effectiveness in the Presidency may actually be negative." Maybe, maybe not, but Posner's post is an interesting read.

See you next week
