He has a national reputation in the field of securities arbitration. 

Professor Jacobson is a prominent conservative blogger and the founder of the influential Legal Insurrection Blog, and the recently-opened College Insurrection Blog.  Professor Jacobson will discuss his history of moving from a silent observer of politics to an openly-conservative legal and political pundit, and his observations about the state of politics on campuses.  As an added bonus, Professor Jacobson will discuss his views on law school in these times of widespread talk of a “law school bubble.”
