Law.com’s new list of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America includes our own Eugene Volokh, together with the following blurb:
If Eugene Volokh had done nothing but create The Volokh Conspiracy, a conservative-libertarian weblog that averages about 25,000 unique hits per weekday, his fame and influence would be secure. Volokh’s blog is a forum for leading conservative and libertarian thinkers on legal and public policy issues. But the Russian-born UCLA law professor, who graduated from college at 15, is a prolific and widely respected writer and expert on the First Amendment, cyberspace and gun rights. Google Inc. hired Volokh, 45, last year to write a paper defending Google search results as protected speech. Volokh clerked for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Very cool. Congrats, Eugene!
