Blawg Review

It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest

Previewing Blawg Review #22

This week's Blawg Review #22 proves again what many lawyers have known for years—if you want something researched thoroughly, get a smart law student on the case. Ambib has put together a completely readable "back to school" issue at Blawg Wisdom.

There's probably everything a law student needs to know about current topics of interest to lawyers—from breaking news about the nomination of Judge John Roberts for Chief Justice of the United States, and several posts from lawyers and law students personally affected by Hurricane Katrina, to advice from lawyers and law professors.
Law students, professors, and practitioners who blog are constantly writing posts that consist entirely or predominantly of advice to law students and recent law school graduates. However, since these bits of advice appear all over the web and at random times, it's hard for any one law student to know where to find them.

Enter Blawg Wisdom.

The idea behind Blawg Wisdom is simple: Gather together as much advice from blawgers as possible about law school and beginning a career in the law. That's it. Blawg Wisdom is an advice aggregator.
So, check out Blawg Review #22, the "back to school" issue at Blawg Wisdom. There's even some helpful advice for law students from Professor Bainbridge on Wine. In what might be a first, a law student allowed the Professor to hand something in late for Blawg Review this week, and gave full credit for the work. Like I said, smart law student.
