From the ‘Titles That Ought to Be Dept.’

I was crawling through one of the Westlaw searches that have been my life at work for the past week when I came across a law review article entitled "Brief for Appellant Blackacre." It turned out to be just a moot court brief ("Blackacre" was short for "Blackacre Forest Products, Inc."); I was sore disappointed.

After all, "Brief for Appellant Blackacre" would make a great title for an environmental law article. I can almost envision how the article would go: it would be a discussion about the relationship of land and ecosystems to the people who claim to speak for them.
