Blawg Review

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

Legal Research & Writing

Susan McDonald, an attorney in Nashville whose practice is limited to
research and writing, is hosting Blawg Review #98.

On her blog, Legal Research & Writing, you can learn more about Susan's unique practice:
The internet and outsourcing have enabled me to build a successful practice of providing legal research and writing services to other lawyers around the country. This unique practice is a win-win situation for me and for my clients. I can combine my broad experience in litigation and judicial clerkships with a genuine passion for legal research and writing. With that combination, I provide writing projects that help my lawyer-clients better represent their own clients, without the overhead of an additional full-time attorney.
True to form, Blawg Review #98 covers a broad range of current legal topics, and includes many links to weblogs of special interest to our host with regard to legal research and writing. It's only fitting that this week's issue encourages us to vote for the hottest law librarians, male and female, of those nominated on Above the Law, where David Lat asks, "Who is America's hottest law librarian?" rigging the contest to exclude Canadian Law Librarian and Info Diva Connie Crosby who is, incidentally, hosting Blawg Review on April 23rd.

As every hot law librarian could tell you, April 23rd is World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Day) a yearly event organised by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property through copyright.
