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!
