Trying to keep up with Civil Procedure? Puzzled by Twombly and Iqbal? Take a look at these great blawgs:

And for the best on Twombly and Iqbal,

Yes, this blog is about products liability. But it has the clearest discussions of the “new pleading”.

Here are two ejournals that you can get through SSRN - the Social Science Research Network:

  • Federal Courts & Jurisdiction eJournal
  • Litigation & Procedure eJournal (found under “Litigation, Procedure & Dispute Resolution eJournals”)

Lots of brand-new articles on civil procedure. To access these ejournals on SSRN, register for an account at Use your email address. For help, see the video at Once your account is set up, you will get an email with instructions for registration and subscribing to journals. The first time you go to your SSRN start page, it will ask you to enter your email address. Hit the "Submit" button, and your User ID and Password will be emailed to you in seconds. Input your ID and Password, and you are on your way.

You can also set up alerts on bepress (use “Courts”, “Jurisdiction”, and “Practice and Procedure”), Westlaw, and Lexis.

With all these goodies, you should be well out in front.
