Calling all would-be law review contributors – a respected publication is looking for YOU!

We here at CommLawBlog have been requested to post the following solicitation for articles to be published in the Federal Communications Law Journal.  Yes, we know that many of our readers (including lots of lawyers) aren’t likely to be jumping at the chance to stare blankly at a computer keyboard for hours on end, waiting for inspiration to strike — why, after all, even think about re-living (shudder) those all-nighters from your college years?  But a number of us here in the CommLawBlog bunker worked on the FCLJ back in the day, we’re all FCBA members, and we have a soft spot in our hearts for the Journal.  Some of us have even written law review articles, and can say with a straight face that it can be a fun and rewarding experience.  Plus, there’s always the chance that your article will get cited as a major influence in the next big communications case out of the Supreme Court!  How cool would that be!

So here’s what the folks at FCLJ want you to know:
