Professor Obama?

Update (1/22): Steve Kolowich speculates here on whether Mr Obama could get a teaching job at a top U.S. law school given his thin (and fraudulent, we would add; see below) publication record. (Hat tip: Paul Caron, via TaxProfBlog.)

Via the Volokh Conspiracy, our friend and colleague Will Baude brought to our attention this 56-page academic article in this month’s issue of the Harvard Law Review: “The President’s Role in Advancing Criminal Justice Reform.” So, what’s so special about this scholarly article? Barack Obama is listed as its sole author! 

But, hey, did President Obama himself really have the time to write up all 56 single-spaced pages and research all 317 footnotes of his law review article? If not, do the editors of the Harvard Law Review have a legal or ethical duty to disclose all the names of the persons who helped Obama write and research his article?
