Blogs Every Law Student Should Monitor

by Ted McClure 23. November 2010 13:09

If you are not monitoring the following blawgs, you are falling behind:

LAW.COM (start at http://www.law.com/jsp/law/rss.jsp)

JURIST - Paper Chase (http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/paperchase/)

SCOTUSBLOG (start at http://www.scotusblog.com/2010/11/scotusblog-4-0-and-the-rss-feeds-feature/)

Except for Paper Chase (which is not terribly burdensome), each of these blawgs permits you to narrow your subscription to the news you need. There may be other sources you need to follow based on the courses you are taking and any research you are involved in (see http://www.blawg.com/ or http://www.abajournal.com/blawgs/by_topic/), but every student needs to follow these three.

Phoenix Law Review Now Available Online!

Happy Monday everyone!

Did you know you can access the Phoenix Law Review online? Head over to the Phoenix Law homepage, select Academics, and then select Law Review. Or for direct access click here. Read volumes 1 and 2, and volume 3 which is issued in two parts: Arizona Government and Legal Education. This is a valuable resource, as HeinOnline only has volume 1 of the Phoenix Law Review and Westlaw and LexisNexis do not have the publication at all.

Also, the Phoenix Law Review is having a Spring 2011 Write-On Competition. This competition is open to all students who have completed at least 25 credit hours by the end of summer classes, have at least two semesters of law school left, have completed Lawyering Process 1 & 2, and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.50. If you are interested in entering the competition, add the Phoenix Law Review Spring 2011 Write-On Competition TWEN page (must have access to Westlaw and be a PSL student to do so). Details for how to enter will be on the TWEN page at 1:00 PM on December 11, 2010.

Enjoy the short week & read the Phoenix Law Review during the long weekend!
