Blog o’ My Heart

I tear things out of magazines and journals. Only my own copy but sometimes it takes me awhile to get around to reading these items. In the Feb. 2008 issue of The CRIV Sheet, which is a regular feature of AALL Spectrum, Rebekah Maxwell wrote about the rise of the legal blog, sometimes called blawgs. Many of the sites she included are now archived, primarily because they were government sites and we’ve had a change since then. To find the new government blogs go to Blogs from the U.S. Government. Rebekah points out other useful blog aggregators and how they have become mainstream sources of information and legal authority. Courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, have cited blogs in their opinions.

Speaking of the USSC, the SCOTUS Blog is produced by a law firm not the court but is a rich resource including briefs, opinions, and analysis and commentary.
