Convictions on Sabbatical

Over the past four months, Convictions has reached hundreds of thousands of readers and contributed a great deal to America's legal conversation.  However, we have decided to take a sabbatical. Instead of running Convictions as a continuous blog, we'll call on our excellent roster of contributors when news breaks, and run their exchanges as a multi-part conversation, as we do Dahlia Lithwick and Walter Dellinger's Supreme Court conversation at the end of term. 

In addition, I will be taking a leave of absence from Slate to serve as the Obama campaign's national veterans director.  I've been grateful for this opportunity to work with such brilliant and engaging contributors, editors and staff, and look forward to rejoining Slate after the election.


Thank you for all of your readership, participation, comments and e-mails over the past four months.
