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!

The Law Library of Congress is blogging! Since August 2nd 2010, the In Custodia Legis blog has provided some excellent blog posts about legal trends and current issues, pictures of the Law Library of Congress, government use of technology, and naturally stuff about Congress. The tone and humor of the blog is wonderful! I promise it will hold your attention and not put you to sleep!
The title of their blog, In Custodia Legis, is Latin for "in the custody of the law." Read more about the blog and its bloggers here.
A post from today particularly caught my eye, titled "When Legal Systems Collide: The Case of the 'Honeymoon Killer'". I am fascinated by this story, and will definitely be back to read the blogger's insights about the case. It is so wonderful to get a brief summary of what is going on as well as questions the blogger has pondered. And of course, links out to source documents are especially helpful if I have interest in reading more.
Hopefully you too will find the In Custodia Legis blog to be intriguing as well!
