Slippery Slopes in 10 Pages:

Ward Farnsworth’s The Legal Analyst includes a chapter on slippery slopes that’s generally based on my Mechanisms of the Slippery Slope article.

As is usually the case with Ward’s work, it’s extremely well written, and I can’t imagine a better 10 pages on the subject. If you don’t want to read my whole law review article (and who really wants to read whole law review articles?), read Ward’s 10 pages instead — many thanks to Ward and his publisher for letting me put the chapter on my site — or, better yet, read his whole book.
